Yogaglo is getting some traction

Friday, July 24th, 2009

Kurt the CyberGuy from KTLA did a piece on Yogaglo that came out today on nationwide television: Yoga Strikes a New Digital Pose

The filming:


The result:

Then, just after the filming crew left, Forbes Life did a short description of Yogaglo in Find of The Day

In the past week Derik, Yogaglo’s founder, also arranged interviews with the LA Times and Huffington Post.

When you take a look at what Yogaglo users are saying, no wonder its a success:

Here’s another update from Paris. I’m sure you’re busy, but i just want to send you all my gratitude for yogaglo. It’s revolutionary!
Thanks to your service I’ve found a solution – and more!

Martin, Paris, France

The website design is beautiful.  Clean, crisp look and nicely organized.  I will be spreading the word to friends in the weeks to come.  The seamless movement between the 15-minute segments requiring no manual clicking is as good as I’ve seen in online video.  The volume of the music is solid. I think Jo is a star yogi teacher and even better person.  Best of luck!

Kevin, New York City

What a perfect celebration of the power, peace, diversity, and radiance of our global lifestyle community.
Yogaglo has uniquely innovated a multi-platform brand which will sustain the test of time; and lead with relevance, grace, and style.
Yogaglo.com is a virtual Conscious Community Center reflecting the heartbeat of those devoted to building boundless bridges inward and outbound.
Thank you for being the connector to those of like mind and heart.
Imagine the potential….

Tracy, Los Angeles

I just found out about this site/concept today. I think it’s brilliant! Bravo to you for making this a reality. I look forward to practicing with you here in San Francisco.

Trish, San Francisco

I had the opportunity to spend some time with Jose DaVeiga in his home in west LA for an interview on how Klicksports came to be, and for a demo of the technology.

We have 2 videos: one with the interview of Jose (on him and his company) and the other with a demo of their technology.

In this interview, Jose reveals how, inspired by the promises of interactive TV,  he  invented the perfect interactive platform for sports games in 2001 and made it a reality five years later.

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

My Drag and Drop MyDnD, formally known as liveap, purchased a license of our Drag n Drop site creator 6 months ago, and since then have made several major improvements and customizations to it.

They are about to launch their 2.0 version and are gaining strong traction with some major partnership I can’t mention yet. They just got a blurb in Techcrunch Europe along with the other big players in the do it yourself web site market.

Paul Christian, founder of MyDragNDrop, is showing impressive business development skills. It’s perfect to reach small businesses with a free, do-it-yourself web site builder.

And its also great to see our technology at such great use.
