Pretty Streets and the City

Keep calm and test your web-app on!

The New York experiment has been going on for 2 days. Carine and I have been walking, running and City Biking up and down the streets of Manhattan, from Tribeca to East Village, through the meatpacking district and Central Park. I have to admit to a few rushes of totally feel-good pride when Pretty Streets actually enabled Carine to DISCOVER new nice places and streets in her own neighborhood. I got first-hand feedback on the app from Carine, and, well, I also have to admit to having compiled a decently-sized list of hairy bugs and necessary user experience enhancement to discuss with Benoit.

I also met with Startup Leadership Program fellow Quentin and program organizer Tej. Thanks for the time and the great advices guys. It was also good to have an informal meeting with NY Techstars Director KJ, and get a better view on what matters and what to expect from a program such as Techstars.

I’m on my way to the airport, about to leave New York, ready for the next stop of my North America tour: Montreal, here I come!
