POC or Proof of Concept

Today was one of the most beautiful days I have had in long time,let me give you some context, one of the things we missed to tell you  was that we ordered an ebike on amazon, you know because of cientific research , we are building a proof of concept, from a professional point of view it is a complex concept, but for the untrained eyed like me the proof of concept is basically an esqueleton, we are testing and interacting for the very firt time, with actual parts, let me tell you this Is incredibly entertaining,

For me it was extremely rewarding to be able to use a bike, even if it was an electric one, for the first time in long time, obviously my memory triggered happy childhood memories, long before bike were this popular and long before times where  it is far better go to work biking than driving your car (based on overall cost benefit)

So of course we rode a while , not enough yet thou,

The thing is we are happy and moving forward with our very fonded Slid Project

Long Time no talking to you fellas!

Hi there! I know it’s been long time no talking to you, fellas. Days have been hectic but the very most important thing here is that we are back! Where to start… where to start?

Alright, let me give you a hint: Intellectual Property. Yes, pretty neat, right?

Well, turns out we checked in with the CATi (an acronym, Spanish for Technology and Innovation Support Center) for our first reality check. And it turns out they were pretty excited with our project.

Of course Harold and I celebrated the event: this meant a lot for us, because it was the very first time someone outside our close circle of friendships saw The Slid. And even more so when the guy that reviewed our case was playing devil’s advocate (and he does on a daily basis,  ’cause that’s his job) demonstrated sincere interest in our project. Pretty much like the SharkTank, only with no sharks, and no money, but hey: money come and goes; good ideas are unstoppable.

One of the most important takeaways was: if we want to hit it, we might as well get good law counsel, especially in terms of intellectual property, which of course none of us is really proficient. In fact, that was probably the main reason why we have been low-key in social media, and almost began writing only therapeutically here in this blog. We have been very active, though, especially Harold who hands down has made a HUGE job, hella work and Kudos to you, because you have been able to gracefully fix design gaps and setbacks.

By the way, setback is a funny word. Read on: one of the next entries is initially related to Setbacks.

We still have to figure out a lot of things, but this has been a gratifying and interesting journey so far. Sometimes I believe we are here because of the thrill, yet we know we gotta stay focused, though.
