So I am working on an app which of course meant I had to go get an iPod Touch. I can't believe how shiny it is!

Now back to work!

What, did I start something for you?

The Touch is fun. I like playing the one in our office. I'm just afraid I'll break it, it feels so thin.

Glad you're on to another project.

Dear Ms. Cassy,

My name is Laura Happel and this year I went to my first Dragon Con. I loved how it had something for everyone, how well organized it was, and how amazing the guest speakers were... you had people who work for NASA come talk about the Saturn Project!!!! WOW! However; I am writing to you to tell you about the one frustration I (and everyone I met and spoke to at Dragon Con) had though out the entire convention and my idea I have to get rid of the frustration.

I would often lose the first 5-10 min. of the next discussion or forum I wanted to see because I would frequently not be able to figure out where I was going. The big poster board maps at major entrances didn't even have "YOU ARE HERE" arrows. The information booth people were wonderful and knowledgeable, but by the time it'd be my turn to talk to one of them, the forum I'd want to attend would be over. On my second day, in the middle of the Marriott lobby, (after 20 maddening min.) I shook my much crumpled paper maps in the air, and declared "Man! Dragon Con needs a MAP QUEST!!!" Several people near by who overheard me stopped in mid-conversation and.... agreed.... a lot.

I would like to design an i-phone/ i-touch application for getting around Dragon Con. (Call it 'Dragon Directions.') Something very basic where you are able to type in where you are (hotel/ room number), where you want to go (name-of-forum and or hotel/ room number), and tap GET DIRECTIONS. It would be like MAP QUEST is on the web.

I am writing to ask you if I could work with Dragon Con so I may create such an application. I am also wondering if Dragon Con would be interested in offering a link to such an appliation on their web site. As a Science Fiction and Dragon Con fan I would love to help people get to where they want to be with as much ease as possible so they don't miss a min. of a speaker they want to hear, or a discussion they would love to be a part of.

Please let me know what you think of my idea and if Dragon Con would be interested in collaborating with me to help make such a thing a reality. Thank you for your time and thoughtful consideration.
