Welcome Fabian!

I'm happy to announce that for the next 3 months, I'll be working with an old high school friend, Fabian Siegel. He's in Germany but he'll help code up prototypes and the initial product. He's not my cofounder: I'm still working on that (watch this space!).

I met Fabian over a decade ago in school where we shared a common love of computers. Together, we wrote a Command-and-Conquer-like isometric real time strategy game. We had DirectX graphics with little vehicles moving around the a map. However, we never got to the point where the vehicles would shoot at each other, thus severely limiting the game's commercial potential. Fabian went on to study Computer Science in Munich, Germany, and later switched his focus: He now has an M.D. and can resuscitate us in case we pass out from working too hard. On the side, he's also been running a web hosting company and is a mail server guru.

In his words: Let's rock!

Good luck guys! I'll be keeping an eye out for you over the coming months. -- And hopefully, this time around, you'll remember to "make it shoot".
