Ellicott City, MD, September 18, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Mindgrub Technologies is featured in this week’s edition of BmoreMedia.com as an emerging technology company in the Baltimore tech scene. BmoreMedia is an online magazine that tells the story of the new economy in Baltimore -- a narrative of creative people and businesses, new development, cool places to live, and the best places to work and play. Bmore interviewed Mindgrub President & CEO Todd Marks for a background on the company and spotlights how he has been growing Mindgrub over the last 8 years and why its position on mobile development is so successful. The article features Todd’s success in local internet companies and excelling through the ranks to prepare himself for his own company. Today, Mindgrub Technologies exemplifies how his hard work and dedication has aligned the company to be leaders in Social Media, Flash and Mobile application development.
The featured article about Mindgrub touches on the lack of spotlight on the Baltimore Technology community, of which Marks points out "The Baltimore/D.C. area has the No. 2 density of IT professionals,", explaining that “the reason the area doesn't get the recognition of, say, Silicon Valley is because IT professionals in the region work across so many different industries in addition to local companies referring larger projects to New York firms when the talent is here." Marks counters this point by talking about Mindgrub’s location based services (LBS) framework, viaPlace, and the avenues through which it has been implemented within mobile learning. The paradigm shift is, “Now that I’m here, what information is around me?”and viaPlace aims to alleviate the burden of searching for information when in fact it should be delivered automatically based on the users geographic location. viaPlace is twofold: it is a registry system that mirrors a domain registrar which allows for the delivery of advertising, entertainment and education to an end-user based on their geographic location. The company used their framework to create an iPhone application for Baltimore-based 600block, and is currently working on a college campus application for the University of Maryland’s Baltimore County campus. They are also exploring other extensions such as augmented reality and real-time search for mobile devices. With over 3 billion people using mobile devices worldwide, it is clear that LBS, marketing and advertising is the next hottest trend.
