For over the past year, I have spent a large amount of time, energy, and money on following this idea I had, and to say it was a roller coaster would be an understatement.
It all started with a fun concept to explore, and grew into something much bigger, and better than I could have ever expected. It was all surreal and unbelievable to me. I did a series of public talks, which I really enjoyed doing, met a lot of great people, became a finalist at MassChallenge, started a company, and much more.
Above all, Project Jarvis was a learning experience to me; not just in coding, but in creativity, connecting with people, business, and entrepreneurship. I don’t have many regrets looking back, but the one I feel deepest is the way I communicated and connected with my audience. I didn’t respond to as many emails as I wanted, and when I did, the answers might have been too short. A lesson learned the hard way, but learned nonetheless.
Today I am announcing the retirement of Project Jarvis. In the end, I just don’t have the resources to execute this project in the way that it should be.
However, I never like to close one door without opening another. I make it a rule in life to always leave myself open to the universe in some way or form. So, today I am also announcing the launch of Spark Theory Labs, a website that will act as an umbrella for all of my coding projects to go under. A brand if you will, to act as a single repository, portfolio, and blog representative of me, my coding, and ventures in learning to better myself. Everyone is invited to check it out, and learn about my latest project in development, Twitter Spam Assassin.
Thanks to everyone for being so enthusiastic about Project Jarvis, and for being such strong supporters. I hope you understand how life changing and significant your support was for me, and I thank you…
