I’ve decided to officially join up with Russ to work on Mowser! We’ve been talking about it for a while. Before I joined up at AdMob I was actually fooling around with a transcoder based on the Phonifier code because it seems like there’s more demand for mobile accessible content than there is content. That situation still exists, people want stuff on their phones. And mobilizing little vertical slivers of stuff here and there without linking them together just isn’t very webbish, let alone Web 2.0ish, or Mobile 2.0ish. So I’m back to trying to take large swaths of web content and making it mobile friendly. Except this time Russ is yelling at me to call it “content adaption” instead of transcoding. Fortunately I’m a pretty flexible person, I think I can deal with it.
We’re going to be working from our respective homes for now, getting more pages coming through the system and increasing the ad revenue before we think about doing anything like getting an office and blowing money on those cool chairs and throwing a launch party. I assume we’re going to have to do that eventually, just not now. If you’re in the San Mateo area and want to catch up, drop me a line. miker at mower dot com. Hell yea.
