Mylio Visit in Seattle

Posted Jun. 12th, 2015 by Daniel J. Cox

I’ve just returned from my Mylio visit in Seattle. I went there by way of a self invitation, wanting to see for myself what the crew of this new program was all about. I like to know the people I believe in, such as the great support team that includes Matt, Raiza and super coding hero JP Duplessis.

All three of these folks have bent over backwards to help get my massive image library moved over to Mylio.

Matt and Raiza were as personable and friendly as I’ve experienced on the support video chats. David Vaskevitch was there, as well as my good friend and newest Lumix Luminary colleague Kevin Gilbert.

Their office is completely open; I love that type of layout. They have about 35 employees and lots and lots of computer screens running mostly Macs. The software also runs on Windows and Android devices so they have those machines on hand as well.

The walls are filled with photography, and I attended an “all hands on deck” meeting where several of the employees were encouraged to share some of their newest images with the group.

It’s just a short video where Kevin Gilbert and I discussed the basics of Mylio and how it might be something for other photographers to look in to.

All in all it was a positive experience, probably more for me than it was for them, but hey I’m hopeful they got something out of it as well. Am I still as enthused about the product as much as I was before I went? Absolutely. They still have some kinks to work out, but JP Duplessis, the mad man, coding maniac from Canada gets these fixes out in record time. With guys and gals on the Mylio team like the ones I met in Seattle, I’m confident the future looks bright on the picture and memory sharing front. Like Kevin Gilbert likes to say, “All your memories with you all the time.” That’s the Mylio mantra.

    Looking forward to checking out this service. Have started to look for a platform to back up my photos. Very hesitant to go to a cloud-based service for a variety of reasons, but the multitude of hard drives on my desk, and the recent failure of my USB hub to plug them all into, is starting to wear on me.

      Dawn:
      We look forward to having you experience Mylio. It makes it easy to set up a complete protection structure without having to depend on the cloud. If you need help be sure to let us know.

      David
