As I said/tweeted to @skadamo, his blog, Plugbike.com, has been kicking my ass this week. Here’s a link to his post filled with conjecture and hypothetical musing about why Brammo might be visiting Nike this week:
It’s all based on this tweet by @BrammoSays:
The Brammo boys (head of design and mechanical engineering) make a trip to Nike for a product development presentation at Nike HQ on Friday
I put two and two together and just figured it had something to do with shoes. Okay, for a moment, I thought that Brammo might by outsourcing the manufacturing process to Chinese prisoners or Bangalore children, but then I remembered that they are all about “saving the world two wheels at a time,” so I quickly dismissed that idea.
Plugbike put two and two together and came up with iPods and Nike’s application to track your morning jog.
And he even used a post I wrote a while back about the Dashboard application. He’s crafty, sly, and not to be trusted. Okay, actually he’s smart and good looking and smells like a man. Or so I hear.
ANYWAY… I think he’s probably right about that whole “track your ride” idea. Brammo has been talking about this sort of thing for a while.
