About Corey

I'm looking for someone with skills in computer programming and the ability to dream (well technically everyone dreams, but you get my point). I have an idea for what could very likely become the "Next Big" thing in social, but I can't code to save my life. I'll try to speed this up since you're likely tired of reading already.

My idea involves using existing technology but for a much bigger purpose (think myspace vs facebook; similar setups but for very different purposes). So since most of it is existing I feel confident that it is something that can actually be built. So you might be wondering, what is this big purpose? Well, it takes the notion of connecting people through social media a step further by allowing people to not only share a moment but to live (present tense) in the moment. Also, my idea involves getting people physically active which is a passion of mine.

I hope my attempts at humor gave you a little bit of insight into my personality and helped to prove that this isn't some fake account :) I don't have much experience building a company, but I've learned alot about business and I'm driven. Although I might not have been blessed with the gift of an engineer's mind, I feel like I do have a knack for problem solving and for being able to see past the horizon (no I'm not a fortune teller, so I can't give you the winning lottery numbers!).

Anyway, so yeah. I have an idea for what I think would be a really cool approach to using this "social media engine" to power human connections in a totally new way. The best part for me is that it would also empower people to take charge of their health and make it more fun to do so with friends. So maybe I'll find someone on here with the gift of programming who is looking to do something great and leave an impact on the world. If not, then I guess it's back to posting ads in the paper (jokes).

Thanks for reading.
