Glassboard’s New Home

Second Gear acquires Glassboard. Second Gear is Justin Williams, @justin.

I’m so pleased. I don’t have any business interest in this sale — just the personal satisfaction of knowing that software I helped create is going to a great home.

I use Glassboard every day. It’s the main way Q Branch communicates. I use it with my family, with the local Xcoders group, and with other small projects.

This acquisition marks a personal moment: everything I brought to NewsGator, or created while there, has been passed off to another company. None of my apps remain. They’ve moved to Black Pixel,, Red Sweater, and now Second Gear.
