Notes

- Yancy knows Eric. Worked with him on a project before.
- There’s another person: Rich.

Launch next month. Jeff. Launcher, changing skins. Tickertape and push advertisements.

- I’ll need a copy of the source code. I can get started on that early.
- Development environment included, but will probably require Windows. I don’t have a machine to deal with this.
- Does it already have realtime hooks, or will you have to code that in?
- Binaries for different platforms.
- Target the 7650.

- Tickertape
- Screensaver

Skinnable launcher
- No tickertape design yet; what’s their source for the data?
- Push advertisements

Risks
- Need to find out how to get information for the tickertape
- No details on how to push information yet
- Not sure about realtime use
- None of the original programmers
- Possible ethical problems – memo of agreement?
- Haven’t set up development environment yet
- Blech, it’s Windows code – Visual Basic…
- No development tools
- Business sense of making the ads – accepted by Globe
- two weeks prototype?
