The asteroid in case, is the economy. Kasian will tell you that they were hit with an opportunity. I talked to Kasian Franks, CEO of Seeqpod yesterday and his company, like many companies, are finding ways to survive.

I called Maui Hawaii yesterday in the hopes that I’d be able to talk to Louie Martin, founder of Tropix Surfboards and the Maui Built brand. After speaking with a couple of people at Tropix Central, I finally got him on the phone. I asked him if I could interview him for my blog and …
