Been a busy day, looked at 6 office spaces for SAFE-FS and found a great one downtown in KL that suits our needs perfectly.
We had been working in a shared space in the suburbs, but needed much more. This new office is perfect, all amenities, a large private office room with four desks for us, and lots of shared start-ups around, with a large event hall for downtown KL SAFE Pod Meetups for everyone.
There are even lots of blockchain startups in this building, and they just had a large blockchain event three days ago. Several people have heard of MaidSafe (!!!) and they gave me a 5% discount because one person knew of me and SAFE-FS
You may have seen our newest employee @vjbollavarapu posting on the safedev.org forum, and he is making meaningful contributions to the Alpha 2 version of SAFE-FS. Our front-end designer has finished a new version of our website, but we are saving that for when we release some future announcements (secret)!
We are continuing to hire, and hopefully are able to find 1-2 more talented team members soon. Have been working with many agencies and learning that it is definitely all a big process, but rest assured a milion hours are going into all this every week
Finally, I have continued networking for SAFE-FS and the MaidSafe KL Pod, and have had the pleasure of being reached out to by local SAFErs here in Malaysia such as @harvindar and Jun, who have introduced me to their 20 person WhatsApp SAFE group. So hopefully my monthly presentations will continue soon, now that we have an audience. Yay Malaysia! Yay MaidSafe! Here’s a pic of us:
