Since March 2005, BlackBerry Cool has been the destination for those who desire the best in BlackBerry new coverage. Here are the people who make it happen:
Kyle has been working with Smoke Labs for several years on and off. When not at Smoke Labs, Kyle was working in a variety of web and wireless based industries around the world. In 2007, Kyle did web consulting for the Foreign Trade Administration, while living in Jerusalem, Israel. In 2008, Kyle moved to Daejeon South Korea, to teach English and develop his writing skills. Kyle not only manages and publishes the majority of content on the site, he also does the lion’s share of the dishes at the office. He is now in Ottawa, Canada where BlackBerryCool is headquartered.

He has been able to intertwine his personal passions for technology into the culture at Sales by 5 where he helps ensure that Sales by 5’s clients are communicating and working faster and better than their competitors. Nan is also a driving force behind the Sales by 5 Blog, which provides visitors with fast and practical ideas to increase sales.

Matt has helped do any and every video you’ve seen on BlackBerryCool that is remotely well edited. If it was poorly edited, it was done by Kyle. Matt has worked in the mobile games industry for about 2 years. His real creative juices flow when he does his VJ’ing sets for various bars and nightclubs around the city. All in all, he has been cultivating a career as a video artist for about 5 years. He is entirely self-taught and really good at what he does. If you’re ever in the Ottawa area, check out the Mercury Lounge on a Saturday night.
