A big thank you to Wowrack for sponsoring us with a virtual server. I’ve learned about Wowrack at the Startup Weekend a while back, when they provided each interested team with a free virtual machine. Since then, they have been hugely helpful with my previous startup (JoVE) eventually becoming our primary hosting provider for the primary web site as well as a lot of our internal systems.

We have been accepted into the Harvard Innovation Lab (i-lab) as a long term resident for the spring 2012 semester. Smack in the middle of the Harvard Business School, we are going to be working alongside about 55 other start-ups, so this is pretty exciting, although I still hope to drop by the CIC on a regular basis, who have been a tremendous resource thus far.
