Whrrl Team on the Ground in San Francisco
Starting Tuesday (2/26), members of the Pelago staff (makers of Whrrl) will descend on San Francisco to promote their product at the various Noise Pop events. They will be giving away all sorts of merchandise, including sweatshirts, stickers, buttons and they are also rumored to be giving away some mobile devices as well. This street team is interesting, because they are not just hired guns for this event - they are the people who actually work on bringing the product into existence. Engineering, design, infrastructure and marketing staff will come together to evangelize their product at venues throughout the city.
I flew in last Friday and I've probably already logged 20 miles on foot even with the rain - what a cool place to explore. I'm Danielle Morrill (or Danielle M.) on Whrrl - let's be friends!!
