Help get Lisa to SxSW!

Lisa is one of the Cornell Mafia that worked with me from 1998-2001, and she's leveraged HER expat experience into some sort of conditional semi-valid visa to live in the UK.  She's one of my heroes. And one of my free places to stay when I am on that side of the Atlantic. So with that said, I'm going to totally pimp her company out to get her here to Austin.  What you say? Hear her out, and throw some props to Six to Start!  Here's her email....



Hi there,

 

I hope you're well, and apologies for the spam.  I know, I've been terribly remiss in telling you the rest of the fairy tale.  Well, turns out, we escaped from the evil emperor and made our way to the promised land (http://www.sixtostart.com).  It just turns out the promised land requires a lot of development before it becomes a thriving metropolis, so we've bought the book Building Civilizations for Dummies and we're on our way to creating a wholly functioning civilization of our own.  It turns our just adding water like you have to do for Sea Monkeys is not the only step you have to follow.  I'm still working double duty with the day job, but hopefully I'll be able to narrow down to one job by the beginning of next year.  Fingers crossed!

 

So, we've come to the part of the story where we need the help from you, the viewers! We really, really want to go to SXSW next year and present some supercool panels about the work we've done this year.  But we need some popular support!  If you would be so kind as to spend a few minutes signing up through the link below (use your spambot email is fine) and giving us FIVE STARS for FABULOUSNESS:

You would be helping a little tiny startup in a faraway place realize its dream of coming to America (for a week...) and telling the world about how it can be a different place!  Vote early, and vote often! 

 

In thanks for your efforts of helping us cross the pond, here are some of our fun games:

http://www.youngbondshadowwar.com (more interesting after August 23, geared towards 10-14 year old brit kids)

http://www.wetellstories.co.uk (oldie but goodie, this is what we'll be talking about at SXSW)

 

We're also doing http://www.libertynews.co.uk for the BBC, but as you can see when you click, you're not allowed to see it since you're based not in the UK L  We're working on getting universal access to this since we'd really like for more people to see it.

 

Thank you very much for your help!  I'll be back in CA around early November.  France/Germany will likely be September/October.  Singapore will be maybe September?  Rest of world places will have to wait... I still need to work out my visa issues in the Uk first.

 

Cheers

Lisa
