For those of you that don't know, I'm participating in StartupBus this week, in the Alumni competition. My team, SkillMeUp has finished pitching for the semi-semi-finals at the amazing Rackspace facility in San Antonio, and we're feeling confident that we're going to go big over the next few days.
I know that we wouldn't have done as well without the additional developer resources provided by Elance; they were able to keep up the pace while we slept and brought skills to the team to which wouldn't have otherwise had access.

Also a shout out to my team: Will Mitchell and Kyle Eschenroeder, Kevin Stotz, and Romiro Fidalgo who came all the way from Mexico. We're going to rock this, and make bank.
And no, none of them paid me to say this... our sponsers and my team mates really are that cool.
