| Andy Chiang - designer extraordinaire for creating a gorgeous UI for Ecorio. Andy took on our project as a side challenge over the summer and simply blew us away with his dedication and talent. He understood exactly what we needed in our user experience, branding and interaction design. He worked as hard as any of us and delivered a complete redesign of our application. Frankly we still don't really believe that Ecorio ended up looking this good.
Pauline Wong, John Orange, John Koch, Eric Elvidge, Sheldon Burshtein, Brett Slaney from Blake Cassels & Graydon who have been and continue to be a tremendous amount of help in sorting out our legal issues.
Logan Green from Zimride who has been an inspiring and encouraging partner to work with and from whom we continue to learn new things all the time. Check out Zimride.com for the world's best ridesharing service!
Matthew Feldman from Carbon Neutral Digest who took notice of our project early on and has been invaluable in helping us figure out the best way to allow users to offset their carbon footprint. Check out carbonneutraldigest.com for the world's leading blog on Carbon offsetting!
Mr. Kao (Jeff's dad) who gave up his house's living room to the Ecorio team for months on end without complaint and often cooked delicious meals for them too!
Richard Lam (Rob's brother) who spent a lot of time giving us feedback, suggestions and helping us out with various operational issues, and is our first and probably biggest fan :)
Esther Park who very kindly volunteered to help us put together our press releases and created the extremely useful media distribution list for us
Lindsey Neely who in the process of filming us has ended up giving us lots of help and advice and even scored an on-air TV interview for us, all the while dealing with our ever changing schedules and plans! Yay Lindsey!
To our friends who kindly agreed to test Ecorio and give us their unflinchingly (looking at you Yoyo and Jay) honest opinions: Yoyo, Fahd, Cheng, Pooja, Shruthi, Laura, Jay, Isabel & Jessica.
And to Al Gore for inspiring this entire enterprise - seriously, what do we have to do to get to meet this guy?
