Funny! My friend Jon Stevens (who wrote the app with me) knows Chris really well. I'm glad to hear someone was trying... it was super-exciting to finish and then a big let-down when the product went nowhere. I hope the iPhone is prompting the carriers to remove their heads from their asses.

Looking at your look familiar. Were you ever in the crowd?
Good deal on the x-country trip! Now if they'll only take the handcuffs off and let you leave the desk for long enough...

Nope, I don't know the crowd, but SF is a small place and I wouldn't be surprised if we know the same people.
