Litl finalist interview

  1. 1.
  2. 2. How do you feel about being named a finalist in the 2010 Tech Awards? <br />Litl is privileged to be named an MITX 2010 Awards finalist.   New England is a hotbed of technological innovation and excellence in the US and Litl is proud of this recognition within the region.  <br />
  3. 3. If you could describe your innovation in one succinct sentence, how would you describe yourself?<br />The Litlwebbook is the world's first cloud-based netbook and has an entirely re-thought computer interface that focuses on online apps and content, not files, hardware or maintenance.<br />
  4. 4. How was your company founded, and what inspired its creation?<br />Litl was founded by its CEO, John Chuang, a well-known Boston-based entrepreneur.  Chuang was inspired to found Litl after observing that his family's computing habits were entirely web-based: "There is a generation coming up who have never installed software and for whom 'computing' means webapps like Flikr, YouTube and Facebook. But computers still work much like they did in the 1980s. Litl changes all that".<br />
  5. 5. What makes your company different from other companies in your market space?<br />Other companies are still talking about cloud-based consumer computers while litl is already making them.   Litl is the first company to get rid of obsolete clutter on the desktop and to integrate media and web through a simple interface.<br />
  6. 6. What is your greatest asset?<br />Litl's greatest asset: our visionary designers and engineers.<br />
