WFNX – My Song is Better Than Your Song

August 28, 2009 Leave a comment

On Thursday I had the pleasure to be on The Sandbox at WFNX for My Song is Better Than Your Song to compete against Boston mayoral candidate Sam Yoon. My choice, U2’s Bullet the Blue Sky – my all time favorite Edge song where he let’s the guitar, distortion and energy rip through his amp via a bluesy strat.

Sam’s choice was Under Pressure by Queen and Bowie. Being a massive U2 fan in Boston, where U2 fans are plentiful, I thought I would easily secure the votes needed to defeat the unstoppable Sam Yoon. However, once again Sam Yoon won handily with a 2:1 victory over BostonTweet. Even with the loss, my time on WFNX was an absolute blast! After a few minutes of butterflies I was at ease behind the microphone and quickly became addicted to being on the radio.

A very special thanks for the invitation to @SandboxCharlie, @SandboxFletcher and Special Ed (sorry Ed I couldn’t remember your Twitter ID).

sayagle_logoAfter more than a year of development Sayagle is almost here. Sayagle is the first location based social networking marketplace that connects consumers with friends and merchants in real time. By integrating the web with mobile communications, social mapping, instant messaging and enterprise level security Sayagle has created one of the safest and most effective collaboration and networking platforms known.

mockup-IM-loginSayagleIM enables friends, classmates and colleagues to communicate across all mediums & networking platforms for unrestricted messaging. With drag and drop file transfers classmates & colleagues can collaborate on files no matter the size or number of recipients. Have an event to promote? Create and distribute the logistics via SayagleIM for broadcast to your connections. Think of SayagleIM as command central that controls all of your communication across the major Internet platforms – while also notifying you of events hosted by friends and discounts from your favorite merchants.

When online SayagleWeb combines your real world with the virtual one by being the first platform to effectively create a symbiotic relationship between merchant and customers. This symbiotic relationship enables customers to request bulk discounts from merchants by forming influential buying groups centered around a specific product or service. For merchants, Sayagle’s advanced coomunication tools give you a direct form of communication with users to broadcast last minute specials & bulk discounts to customers.

mockup-phone-iconSet to launch in September 2009, Sayagle Mobile integrates SuperDeals with the communication features of SayagleIM and the mapping of Sayagle Web. On Sayagle Mobile SuperDeals are published to you based on both your home address and your current physical location. Sayagle Mobile is also highly focused on security! With the Sayagle SOS button users can instantly notify emergency contacts of their exact whereabouts in times of distress – giving everyone peace of mind.

Sayagle is the brainchild of Ken Huang who built Sayagle on robust clusters of state-of-art server infrastructure with high availability and implemented with the latest stable enterprise level virtualization technologies and SAN storage. Ken leads a team of experienced professionals who individually have at least 13 years of IT infrastructure experience, 10 years of R&D experience and 8 years of business experience.

For media inquiries please contact me, Tom O’Keefe, at 617-947-8071. Sayagle is currently self-funded but we are seeking additional financing. If interested please also contact Tom.
