[Baypiggies] [JOB] Startup Programmer

Hi everyone,

I'm writing this email because I need a programmer who wants to  
partner with me in developing an idea that I believe will change the  
face of web based chat. Using the python language and community, from  
what I understand, is the best angle to take in pursuing this goal.

The setting: I'm a 23 year old top 20 university Econ/Engineering Mgmt  
double major working business dev for a software company in Cupertino.  
I have an amazing idea. An idea that, if executed properly, I believe  
can not fail. The basic concept is a method to facilitate group real- 
time web-based discussion, which will in some respects replace comment  
sections, forums, and other pseudo-live discussion mediums. I won't  
say any more than that publicly.

The plan: I have a rain check on a teleconference with a hedge fund  
manager who is a family friend and wants to try his hand at high tech,  
high risk VC. If I bring him a proper prototype, he will fund. So I  
need help with the prototype, and I'll take selling it from there.  
After first round funding, you would take over all engineering  
aspects. I am offering substantial equity in the future-business for  
whoever takes the job. If this was Apple, I'm looking for a Woz. You  
would stay on board for however long you want. Hopefully that would be  
until we are a) bought or b) you are rich and want to travel the world.

The need: an exceptionally talented programmer who is willing to be  
passionate and dedicated to making a great idea a reality. Skills  
necessary would be Python (duh), Ajax, SQL, HTML and CSS. Other stuff  
would be necessary I'm sure, but these are the cores. Experience or  
knowledge of web based chat is probably required also. Recent college  
grads are great, because I want someone who is optimistic and  
energetic like myself who believes the sky is the limit.

If you are interested, or know of someone else who might be, shoot me  
an email. NDAs and such can be dealt with when the time comes. I think  
anyone who speaks with me in person will see that this is something  
that could be huge, and you will get a sense of my charisma and  
ability to communicate and sell. Beyond that, however, I will let the  
concept speak for itself.

I apologize to anyone who thinks I have spammed your inbox. I wouldn't  
have considered taking this step unless I felt compelled to based on  
the strength of the idea.

I hope to hear from some of you soon.
