Mike Check - Check, check, one, two... *tap-tap-tap*  Hey, is this thing on?!?<br /><br />Welcome to Interapp Development, Inc.'s official website. It's been a long time in the making, but with a bit of work and patience it's finally here.  It's always the plumber with the leaky pipes.  Fortunately, we've been in busy in business for about 3 years now and have been very fortunate to have been enduring through these tough economic times and hope that the recovery reaches those who need it, fast!<br /><br />In this blog, you will learn about the day-to-day happenings here at Interapp and hopefully you might find and occasional nugget of useful information to help make your life easier.<br /><br />The first thing I will pass along is this "Time Management" lecture, done by Randy Pauch, author of the famous book, <a href="" target="_blank">The Last Lecture</a>.  <strong>I THINK EVERY PROFESSIONAL SHOULD WATCH THIS LECTURE AT LEAST ONCE!!!</strong> In this lecture, the professor gives a much more pragmatic lecture than in his previous life-lessons lecture, but I think the overall moral of this talk is to manage your time wisely so you can have a life outside of work and have time to enjoy those who matter most to you.  It's a great hour-long talk, which I usually like to listen to once or twice a month.  If you decide you like it as much as I do, I would suggest using the website <a href="http://" target="_blank"></a> to convert the video into and mp3 so you can load it onto your ipod.  You can either <a target="_blank" href="">click here to check out the video</a> or watch in the player below.<br /><br /> <object width="425" height="344"><param value=";hl=en_US&amp;fs=1&amp;" name="movie" /><param value="true" name="allowFullScreen" /><param value="always" name="allowscriptaccess" /><embed width="425" height="344" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src=";hl=en_US&amp;fs=1&amp;" /></object> <br /><br />On a side note, the man referenced in the talk by Randy (as being in really good shape) actually introduced Randy in a <a href="">longer unabridged version of the Time Management Talk</a>, is Professor Gabriel Robins.  Professor Robins was Randy's colleague at UVA and is the original collector of the compilation of many quotes used on the side-bar of this site.  Ironically, if you'd like a good way to procrastinate for an hour, visit his page, <a target="_blank" href="">Good Quotes by Famous People</a>.<br /> Sun, 1 Nov 2009 11:0:0 -0500 interapp
