If you've been reading my blog for a while, you may recall my mentioning that myself and two friends of mine were planning on starting a company to work in concert with some amazing web designers that we know. Well, that has now happened, and the three of us are now managing partners of Triworks America, LLC. We are working in concert with Triworks
, a Portugese based web design company who, in my opinion, are by far the best designers I have ever seen. If you don't believe me you can check out not only their web page linked to above (which will soon be updated to include information on our little triumvirate), but the College Poker Association
(a project by my two fellow triumvirs by which they discovered Triworks' amazing talent), and any of the sites in their portfolio (the link's at the bottom of the Triworks.net
page). You can also, of course, consider the fact that every single Triworks site that has been submitted for an award has won that award.
This venture, I think, will turn out very well. As is blatantly obvious, Triworks has absolutely amazing talent when it comes to design. The only thing holding them back in the past, I think, has been that they're located in Portugal and, while they can speak English well enough, doing business in a non-native language is not easy. My friends and I (and yes, I'm pushing to have the title 'Triumvir' included on our business cards) should hopefully be able to provide the cultural and linguistic bridge needed to help bring their amazing talent to the US. Incredibly enough, we've already receive and RFP a very big name international client. Hopefully this augers well for our future success. (Yes, I've probably been watching a little too much Rome

In other newsâ€”also oddly Portugal-relatedâ€”you can vote for the New 7 Wonders of the World
, which is pretty cool. My votes:
- Angkor Wat
- Roman Colosseum
- Easter Island Statues (Moai)
- Great Wall of China
Sadly of those I voted for I've only been to the Roman Colosseum (which ranks as by far the coolest thing I've ever seen), the Great Wall of China, and Stonehenge (probably the second coolest thing I've seen). Of those I didn't vote for I've only been to two: the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty, both of which, though iconic, I don't think quite rate as Wonders of the World.
