Wishing Martin all the best.

July 23rd, 2010

I’m sad to say that Martin May, one of the co-founders of Brightkite, is moving on. Martin (@hiro) describes himself as “Brightkite founder. The man behind the curtain. Jack of all trades, master of none”. The first three are right, that last one is false modesty. Martin helped drive our strategy and was the lead technologist from day one. Martin embodies the definition of an entrepreneur, and his love of innovation is driving him to pastures new. We’re sad to see Martin go, but also wish him all the best in the future. Martin will remain an advisor to the company and a significant shareholder – so his influence over us will remain strong.

For those of you who don’t know Martin, he’s a European (ever wondered why distances in BK are measured in meters?) transplanted to Denver, which he now loyally calls home. Outside work, Martin fills his time with his family, hockey, food and beer – often simultaneously. Just browse through his stream.
