Treemo has teamed up with the Diamond Empowerment Fund (D.E.F.) to offer web and mobile media and community services. Treemo is hosting all the new videos on the DEF web site http://www.diamondempowerment.org and also developed def.treemo.com which is the beginning of a web and mobile community for D.E.F.
Founded in 2007, The Diamond Empowerment Fund (D.E.F.) is a non-profit international organization established by individuals and businesses in the diamond and jewelry industry and others who are committed to the empowerment of Africa. We believe education is one of the most critical elements that powers society and empowers individuals to realize their full human potential.
Here is our quote from the press release announcing D.E.F.’s new web site:
“Treemo is committed to providing D.E.F. with the latest tools in new media and mobile community, so that D.E.F. supporters, worldwide, can learn about D.E.F. stories and see, first hand, how their support for education in Africa is making a difference in the lives of Africans,” emphasized Brent Brookler, CEO of Treemo. “With the D.E.F. community available via mobile phones, a technology with far greater reach than internet technology in Africa, D.E.F. will be able to capture and share the stories of African Youth, who are D.E.F. educational recipients, and publish digital media instantly to D.E.F.’s Community across Web and Mobile Community sites.”
We are honored to be working with D.E.F. and look forward to the beginning of a long relationship with their team on being a positive force in the empowerment of Africa.

We are honored to be working with Velvet Revolver on a user generated contest in conjunction with the release of their new album, ‘Libertad.’Â We are asking users to upload photos, videos, and words on what Libertad means to them.
The winner will get two tickets to see Velvet Revolver at Jones Beach on August 18, 2007 (NY), airfare for two, and accommodations for two nights in New York City.Â Farecast is sponsoring the airfare.
The entries are flowing in here but we are still looking for that entry that seals the deal and will be going to NYC on us at Treemo.
Thanks and good luck!

So, we are now less than two weeks away to the coming of the iPhone. It has gotten so much press and momentum, with the cool ads, the previews, the digerati saying that this is going to change everything in the mobile world. It is exciting.
I’ve been developing mobile applications since 1999, early WAP, SMS, MMS, J2ME, BREW, and now back to WAP or XHTML or mobile internet through Treemo. The iPhone is shedding the light and pushing the mobile internet to the mainstream - at least the tech savvy mainstream. All this hysteria is good for ‘mobile data.’ There is a ton of talk about about how this could change the whole ecosystem.
Do I think it’s going to change everything? No. It takes a long time for phones to go ‘mainstream’ - it will take years if the iPhone is a huge hit to become a major phone to ‘build’ to. Is it going to be a force in the mobile world? Yes, but not sure to what effect immediately, but I will not count it out. Will Treemo develop something specifically for the iPhone? Yes. Not because we think this is the biggest opportunity ever, but.. go to next question.. Will it take long for us to develop? No, because our platform is built for this kind of stuff. You should see a iPhone specific ‘view’ within a couple weeks of the iPhone coming out. Am I going to wait in line to get one? No - not into that waiting on line stuff, but if you have one, please send my way.
So, we’re excited about the iPhone as it will draw more attention to mobile internet applications and bring competitors up a notch. It will drive mobile data - AT&T is going to have a great run with this. Everyone who buys this phone will also buy the $20/month ‘all you can eat’ data plan. Treemo will look and run great on the iPhone and we’re psyched to see it on there.
Come back in a few to see Treemo on your iPhone.

Well, it’s time to pick up the pace here. More blog posts, maybe beyond company news and features, we should pontificate about the market.. anyway. We have a lot brewing here and getting ready for a pretty big release with some long awaited new features.
In the meantime, on a personal note, my wife and I had our second daughter, Lilia, on May 20. A photo of her on the scale was on Treemo less than an hour after she was born ;).
Here is a preview of what’s coming… more news and pontification I promise..

We got some press last week, sorry for the late notice on it. Doug Dobbins did a video interview of us for the Spokane Spokesman Review - you can find it right here. Doug did a good job of showing what we do through video - we love video here, in fact we love photos, video, audio and text..
We quietly, or not so quietly released ‘80′ last week as well - while not too many obvious web features, there is a lot ‘under the hood’ including full international support. Does that imply something for the future? Hmm.. not sure.. Anyway, we had a couple issues on the mobile application with this release, but all better now. We also added ‘mobile preferences’ with ‘block user’ and other default preferences for notifications and privacy of content now all accessible from the mobile.
We are gearing up for a big release very soon - date TBD - it will be a summer gift. More news coming soon..

It’s been far too long since the last post.
What have we been working on? What is going on?
We’ve been seeing increased and increased usage of the site in the last few months which has been great. We took the time to go back and do some really unexciting optimizations to make Treemo continue to hum under increased load. That took a while, but we’re really happy with the outcome - we’d rather continue to roll out new features, but sometimes you have to back and make things in the backend better.
We also recently updated our Etiquette Policy. This update lays out in more detail what kind of content we will allow and don’t allow. We have recently brought on a couple of mobile partners who need us to abide by this rule set. With that said, we also now have 24/7 content moderation. We’re still working out the kinks of this system, so if you see some of your content is being deleted or ‘flagged’ please email us and we will re-review and if need be, re-post.
We have some new features coming very soon, so check back soon and thanks for your support.
