My buddy Russell Beattie has sold his labor of love, Mowser, to dotMobi a few weeks after he announced that he was done with it. James Pearce explains why dotMobi, a consortium backed by leading mobile operators, network and device manufacturers, and Internet content providers bought Mowser’s assets. Russ and Mike Rowehl join Dublin-based dotMobi. “While we didn’t get rich on the deal by any stretch, I’ve been able to pay off a bunch of debts,” Russ writes. I think his adventure with Mowser makes him the real deal in my books.
