Congrats to Alan!

We just heard some very exciting news today! Behavio, the startup of our good friend Alan was just acquired by Google! Apparently there aren't a lot of public details, so I'll just refer you to a news article about it.

For those who aren't familiar with their company, their big idea is to use all data from the low-level sensors on our smartphones (accelerometer, barometer, sensing other phones, GPS, etc.) to produce actually useful data that app developers could use to make apps smarter about responding to your real life. (Hope I got that right, Alan!). The team was acquired by Google so now they'll all be working there...and that's about all I know. Very exciting! Congratulations to Alan and the whole Behavio team.
