Joi Ito Invests in 3Dsolve

A year and a half ago, I started this blog, sucked into blogging by Joi Ito. This entry will be my 996th, representing hundreds of hours spent writing, editing, commenting, wrestling with blogging tools, and engaged in other blogging-related activities.

At last, I've finally turned the tables on Joi -- he's now an investor in the company I co-founded, 3Dsolve. As noted before, I don't often write about 3Dsolve here, hoping to preserve as much as possible my ability to say whatever I want without affecting my company and co-workers. But I'll take this opportunity to talk a bit about us and what we're doing.

3Dsolve offers products and services to enable simulation learning -- using interactive simulations to enhance the e-learning process by making it possible for people to learn by doing. If a subject involves a complex physical facility, device, or process, then it's a candidate for simulation learning. We've announced our first win, and already have been named by Military Training Technology magazine as one of its Top 100, "the companies that have made a significant impact in the military training industry." We hope to announce more wins in the coming weeks and months -- all signs seem to be that 2004 is going to be a great year for us.

Of course, we're all tremendously grateful to Joi for his investment -- the money is nice, but even more important is the continuing ability to work together and to receive the benefit of his wisdom. And on a personal note, Joi, thanks for the vote of confidence in the team -- it means a lot to all of us, especially me.
