Time and Productivity

Project J.A.R.S. has been very busy, hence why our blog is just now getting published. In the past few days we have had meeting with potential partners and a slew of ups and downs when dealing with the developers. Since our last post we have been working very hard to build an environment that is user friendly but full of features. This not an easy task but with all things that will be great their must be some room for mistakes and problem solving. In all my years I have never heard of a business or project that got everything done the first time around. Project J.A.R.S. is no different, we have made some mistakes, but we learning how to improve ourselves as a team.

Project J.A.R.S. is a dynamic entity that is constantly changing and that's a good thing because that makes us viable. The #onecontec site is progressing well +Ryan Satterfield is in charge of that side and I can tell you he is on it like a dog with a bone. The Project J.A.R.S. is on a pause for a few days, but sign up is going great. Using twitter we have made a lot of new friends and supporters for #projectjars which is great because that means that people are starting to understand what Project J.A.R.S. is all about. Since we are venturing into a new territory by tapping into bootstrapped communities and small businesses we believe its best that they have more input as to how our project is developing.

We are actively recruiting people, groups and startups to help with our project, its important that they help because our project is dedicated to supporting them. We have had introductions to women groups that are doing ground breaking things in the world of technology, but they are not getting the exposure they deserve because of bias. We are supporters of groups like #blackgirlscode and #Women Techmakers communities. Its the job of J.A.R.S. to help get these communities the exposure they deserve and the help create a culture that respects its members regardless of gender or ethnicity. As a society building on technology we have to be better than that...we have come to far to be so for behind socially..its embarrassing on some levels...Project J.A.R.S. is trying to level the playing field because we have zero tolerance for bias now enough about the social-political stuff lets get to some cool news.

Project J.A.R.S. Hang Outs on Air is coming soon

Project J.A.R.S. will be hosting Google hangouts soon so keep an eye out. We plan on talking about Project J.A.R.S. and its development and at the same time answer your questions ( I am totally excited about this!!) about what J.A.R.S. is all about. We will also start hosting hangouts and spot light cool projects, and startups to give them some room to talk about whats going on with their projects and business giving them an opportunity to get some feed back from their peers. we hope this will foster in some networking opportunities for everyone. 

I know from experience video hangouts are cool, you meet the most interesting people, now i am going to pause here for a moment and say, the hangouts will be held during normal hours ( I know a lot of you guys will find this funny since I am always online at 3 am) what can I say I am a night owl....or vampire depends on who you ask. Okay well that's all the news for now...follow us on Twitter @onecontec @projectjars or catch us on Google +Jars Storm
