'Nother Local Boy Makes Good...

Crawford Comeaux, local computer jock and a project manager with FiberCorps went to Baton Rouge and came back with the prize. The Advocate story is well worth the read; it outlines the concept behind Startup Weekend held last weekend in the capital city. From the story:
AudienceAmp, a mobile platform for real-time audience participation with post-event analysis and reporting, took first place and will participate in the Global Startup Battle.
It is a competition that throws together all of the Startup Weekend winners from the 2011 Global Entrepreneur Week events. 
“We believe we can have a working prototype in a few days,” said Crawford Comeaux, 29, the leader behind AudienceAmp. 
Comeaux is a project manager with FiberCorps, a Lafayette nonprofit aimed at growing digital economic development in Acadiana. Comeaux and his team also will be given a spot in TechParkU, an entree of business mentoring, education and other services from the Louisiana Technology Park on Florida Boulevard.
Update 12/4/11: The Advertiser has run down the story. A nice write up.
