Startup of the Month: wimZr

With this app, it's not just who you know but when you meet them

New app wimZr’s main focus is people. The interface is straightforward. You view the profiles of people going to the same place. If you like them, click “Connect Me.” If you want to pass, click “Next Time.” If the person you like likes you back, you can start talking. For upcoming events, you can scan guest lists and either connect one-on-one or openly in a public forum.

Weekend Warriors: San Diego & Palm Springs

Last weekend with Clayton Blakley

For Memorial Day weekend I headed down to southern California to visit San Diego and Palm Springs. Between soaking in the sunshine and beautiful views from high-rise balconies, relaxing poolside and enjoying the delicious fare at local hot spots, I think it’s safe to say I had an amazing time.
