I received a message from a friend whose new business just received entry into Startl Accelerator (similar to Y Combinator's Startup School). If you every had aspirations to get a foot into the higher-level entrepreneurial world, it's a great start. Ignoring the PocketTales business - the learning experience itself is probably worth it.

Please email me if interested. Rails experience necessary.

Subject: URGENT Referrals for a developer?

Hey Eric,

I apologize for the caps in the subject, but we were just admitted into a summer accelerator in Philadelphia called Startl and are hoping to hire a new tech lead this week to go out there with us from May 7 - Aug 6. (www.startl.org or see Fred Wilson's blog for a good overview http://www.avc.com/a_vc/2010/02/startl-design-boost-and-startl-accelerator.html)

Our alpha product is built in Rails so we're ideally looking for developer with that experience.

First off - any chance you'd entertain the idea of coming on board as our tech partner?

If not any chance you have any developer leads for us? What about any of the now unemployed Vontoo developers?

We're also hoping to hire a frontend developer (html/css/javascript/etc) if you have any good referrals there too.

Hope you're doing well. We need to catch up.

P.S. If you're wondering what Pocket Tales is these days just check out the first 2 minutes of this video: http://blog.pockettales.com/post/471022613/video-of-our-2-minute-pitch-at-the-2010-sxsw
