Tim Tuttle answers user questions on Expect Labs' MindMeld iPad app. Expect Labs is a startup based in San Francisco that is building a technology platform designed to reinvent how we have conversations. Expect Labs is the creator of the iPad app called MindMeld, which is the first voice and video calling app that can actually understand conversations in real-time to make it easy to find and share related information as you talk. -------------- TRANSCRIPT: Hi there, this is Tim Tuttle from Expect labs again. I'm taking some time to answer questions that we've gotten since we launched our company Expect Labs at TechCrunch Disrupt a couple of weeks ago. At the conference we demoed for the first time our iPad app called MindMeld, which is an app that is designed to, it's a communication app that let's you do high quality voice and video calls, but also tries to understand parts of your conversation as you talk, to make it easy to find and share related information. The question that I've been getting asked a lot, because a lot of people have seen our presentation at TechCrunch Disrupt. We were selected as a finalist of TechCrunch Disrupt, which is awesome! And people have been asking what's it like to present in the finals at TechCrunch? So, well the answer is, it's an awesome opportunity, and it's nerve wracking. And it's lead to a lot of great attention and publicity for the company. So, if you have the opportunity take advantage of it. But probably the most surprising thing to me was the, probably the biggest thing that was unexpected during the presentation, was the last thing that we could have tried to anticipate, which was, when we were trying to show this demo, the connector on the side of the iPad kept popping out. We had sort of prepared the presentation and tried to anticipate things that might go wrong to make sure things went smoothly. As it turned out it was this twenty dollar connector that kept sliding out of the iPad as I was holding it trying to do a demo that probably was the thing that made it most difficult to communicate what the demo was. So, we ended up showing probably about half the things we wanted to show in the demo because this tiny little connector, iPad connect kept sliding out. So that was the take away for me was that it might be things that you can't even expect that might be the biggest challenges, the biggest surprises during the presentation. It ended up being okay. It ended being, the guy on the stage ended up taping it in with masking tape as I was giving the presentation. We ended up demoing the key parts of the app. That was probably the thing that was most surprising is that things you don't even expect will happen. So, that's my take away. It was awesome and nerve racking. And there's probably gonna be things that surprise you despite all your best efforts to prepare. Okay, I hope that's interesting. I'll talk to you later. Bye.
