CrankApps In The News

CrankApps was in the news yesterday. A friend (James Colgan, CEO of Xuropa) called me in the afternoon and asked if I wanted to go to a job fair where people were there to work for free. It sounded like a good deal, and happened to be at a great bar (District) that a friend of mine owns, so I went down to check it out. It was a mob scene. People standing in line to talk to me. 

As I told the press (but they decided to edit out) I think that it is companies like ours in hot spaces that might be able to help fill in some of the gaps of joblessness in the marketplace. Yes, we are hiring (sales, marketing, systems administators, development). Who knows, we might even pay people.
