Hello Team,

First, thanks to the forum owners for creating a great place to network with geek minded individuals and also a place for those who may be 'non-geek' to interface with those who are 'geek and proud'.

A quick run-down on myself and then what I hope to achieve by being part of the forum.

I am what you would call a wannabe geek.  I come from a background which has no bearing on technology (more along the lines of at the coalface, sharp pointy end - those with a little knowledge will know what that comment means).  In my chosen field however, I have always been the go to guy for anything technically, technology or network related.  My colleagues and peers generally come to me when they have messed something up with their PC, Laptop, GPS, Internet etc etc.  They are unaware however that I have very little technical expertise in those fields, but I am a fiend when it comes to finding information on Google and assimilating it into a solution.

I have spent the last half decade working in the middle east and have recently returned to New Zealand to take up another challenge.  Hence the reason I am posting here in this forum.

I have a early stage start-up, currently moving through market validation for two products.  I anticipate validation to be complete before year end, at which stage I will move onto product development and proof of concept, quickly followed by launch.

I will post more details concerning the start-up in the appropriate forum (when I reach the requisite post count).  However we will be designing software and integrating technology for the Physical Security industry (my area of expertise).

What I am looking for is a potential geek to come on board with me in a software development role.  The previous sentence shouldn't be taken as a free for all to fire me emails looking for work.  Read carefully what I have written.  

I am looking for software designers, developers, engineers etc (not sure of what term people use) to take an ownership stake in the company.  You will not be required to front up any money etc, I will be doing that, but more in the way of sweat equity.  The alternative would be for me to hire an individual on a contract basis (at below market rates to cut them loose at the end of said contract).

OK that should be enough to whet the appetite for some, and I apologise for the length.  Feel free to contact me through this forum and I look forward to some responses..

Thanks Matt,

Yeah there is a huge potential (I know all the naysayers will say I am biased - given that it is my own baby so to speak), but the market validation is looking positive.

Thanks for the greet and I look forward to chatting to the members here some more..
