Have a startup idea, looking to join a startup, or looking for employee(s)?

PlaceSpeak found its technical co-founder serendipitously in November 2011. Will Cadell, a GIS engineer from Scotland, living in Prince George, responded to a random tweet, followed by LinkedIn, then a Skype exchange, and email - all before meeting in person. We were working on the same problem from different perspectives, so it didn't take much to get up to speed. He had a technical vision for the solution that both melded with and advanced the core values that inspired PlaceSpeak. A year later, he has re-engineered the platform from the ground up and continues to elaborate upon and refine the application with skill and imagination. This startup idea found a successful collaborator!
