Other ideas

  • want folks to have something special about them
  • will upgrade clients


Move everything under "Bitovi".

To Bitovi's clients

To Bitovi's wonderful clients,

Thank you for the opputunity to build things. When I founded Bitovi, it was after leaving Accenture. There I had a vision for a different type of consulting company. One that celebrated technology, competency, etc ... instead of the sale.

  • where people could learn to be masters of their craft, share code, etc.

That might have been a vision I exected for myself instead of others.

No more writing code. We are going to create an environment where other, like-minded developers and designers can do the same thing.


We've been half heartedly trying to do this for years. Developers could

  • take time off from client work.
  • get rewarded for open source contributions.

But it's not enough. We need to get our people the time to:

  • become an expert
  • help our clients solve complex problems
  • share those solutions with other clients, bitovians and the larger community

So over the next 6 months, everyone at Bitovi will migrate to working 35 hours a week and 5 hours a week on side projects.

  • we also need folks to upgrade! Folks have to be on the latest code if they are going to move technology forward.

Why time?
