This is a well deserved win. AirStrip is one of the more innovative healthcare IT companies out there today. The crazy part is that they're applying relatively simple concepts to healthcare, but healthcare is so far behind that it makes them innovative. What makes them special is they have the healthcare connections where they can work through the bureaucracy side of things too.

I love how you almost have to give permission to people to do this. They're not a startup if they don't work like slave labor and forgo all of what makes life worthwhile.
Of course, if you were to take out the time spent on cat videos, Wii games, and coding debates, then those 12 hour days would look more like 8 hour work days for most people anyway. Not that there's anything wrong with enjoying those things at work. If you want your work and social to be combined like that, it's fine, but then don't call it a 12 hour work day. Just don't be angry when I'm out to a concert with a beautiful lady when you chose to watch your cat videos. Note: The cat video rule doesn't apply to everyone. Replace it with video games, porn, or sports for the rest.

You'd be certainly welcome in Vegas. It's a great time to be doing a startup company in Las Vegas. Let me know if I can do anything to help make your visit a good one.

@polizeros It cost me a lot more than that to do business in Utah. I hated the hoops I had to jump through just to hire someone and pay the stupid state tax. Nevada is much nicer. They make it super easy because they don't collect taxes so they don't care.
So you're saying there's hope for the Chrome web browser to work well on a touch browser on Win 8 (since they have to build it for Pixel)? I hope they get that version out soon. I don't want to use another browser on Win 8. Let's hope Microsoft doesn't stop Google from delivering on this. Right now the experience of Chrome on Win 8 is bad, but it's still better than Microsoft's web browsers.

I wonder what your friend @paulcarr thinks of this since he's built his whole publishing company around a paywall.

@xENo Interesting you say that because there are plenty of events. There has been 3 startup weekend Las Vegas for example. Plus, there are weekly Las Vegas Jelly events where you and many others can attend. Then, there's LaunchUp, Ignite, Downtown Speaker Series, etc etc etc.
Your point could be that those events need to be shared more broadly. A reasonable critique that I think will happen more and more over time.

Great to see so many good companies coming together in Las Vegas. Vegas Tech is indeed a great entrepreneurial community.

Excellent! I'm so happy for you Sarah. Vegas is lucky to have you moving here. I look forward to seeing you at the Jellies and other Vegas Tech events.

My best suggestion is to read more in order to have more ideas to write about. As you read, capture the ideas for future posts as drafts on your blog. Then, you just look through your draft posts when you're ready to write.

Katie Gutweintechguy1 One of my favorite quotes goes something like this...Results improve when something is measured. They improve even more when those results are reported.That's why I often tweet or blog about something when I want to make sure it gets done. Then, I'm accountable to the people who read my blog and follow me on Twitter. I feel a responsibility to keep my word since I told other people.

I love the list and I love that you're brave enough to publish it. If you're posts are good like this, I hope you reach your second goal. I love people who blog and aren't afraid to put a little bit of themselves out there.
