In the article it tells us a little bit about Emma. Maybe I'm tired, but I just can't wrap my head around what this all means. Here are the quotes:
[Sidney]: "I had a very small part in setting up the beta test. Since spring, Iíve been consulting for a company called Emma Approved which was talking to Pemberley Digital about a joint venture. The owner, Emma Woodhouse, was intrigued by the possibilities and her biz-dev guy, Alex Knightley, asked me to come along on one of the meetings they had up at the PD offices to weigh in. So thatís how I heard about the search for a partner community for the Domino Beta test. I passed the info on to Tom and the rest. . . well, itís all on up on YouTube."
So I guess that Alex=George? And that Emma is an employee of PD?
"LN: Did the joint venture with Emma Approved and Pemberley Digital wind up going ahead?
SP: I donít want to step on anyone elseís big announcements, but last I heard it was looking very promising. I think the two companies are a good fit. Tom has nothing but good things to say about Pemberley Digital, and the Emma Approved team is just fantastic. I really do wish them the best with whatever comes next. They were great to work with."
"LN: How did you end up with this appointed position in the mayorís office? What were you doing before this?
SP: Mostly, I work as a financial consultant for digital and new media companies. The work isnít really glamorous, but I think itís interesting. I had just finished out my contract with Ms. Woodhouseís company when Tom called looking for someone to fill in until he found a permanent replacement for Ed. I didnít have another job lined up, and it sounded like an interesting challenge. Also, I think Tom really needed someone to help out, and I was happy to do it."
And Sidney is a former employee of Emma's?
