Say for isntance the CIA came to Skeptic Overlord and said that he must allow one of their agents to be a mod on this site. I don't believe he could tell them 'No', could he?
Stremor is the name of the new platform we're creating for what we believe to be the logical evolution of what is now called "social media." It's the result of some rather painful and bruising strategic soul-searching, and not anything like you've seen before. We're not just saying it's "social, but better," it's what's next. On the strength of our pending patents, we've been able to secure significant seed capital for the development of a strong "public beta" that treats user-directed and professional content very differently. And unlike all those other start-ups with gee-wiz cool ideas and spinning/flipping content interfaces, we've identified how our new platform is also a significant new way for marketers to deliver smart targeted advertising. So yeah, we think it will make money too. How quaint. That's all we can say right now. But if you're a stunningly brilliant software engineer, cloud computing genius, bayesian filter guru, or rock-star creative director experienced in designing captivating user experiences for web and mobile devices, you have a shot at learning more. Everyone else will have to wait.
It’s no secret that some of the most successful startups spring up outside Silicon Valley – and even internationally. But a few up and coming startups are calling home in another valley, as companies like Stremor call the area near Phoenix, Arizona its home.
Stremor, which just announced it has raised $2 million in initial seed funding, is slated to launch a series of products and solutions for online content with a focus on mobile and tablet consumption. By following the philosophy of “lean startups,” Stremor has successfully found the “right talent” to launch these products.

ATS has been here longer than both of us, so who knows what happened before 2009 when we became members. Would you know if a mod instated in 2005 was an intelligence agent?
