WE WON!!!

I am reeling! Today I was notified that Cooking Capsules has won the first phase of the first ever Google Android Developer's Challenge, which means wonderful professional recognition and $25,000 of seed money.

We were one of fifty teams to win out of 1,788 entries. We are so delighted and honored, and cannot wait to further build the application for Round 2.

This is a peak moment if I've ever had a peak moment. I am so passionate about this idea, which I've been developing for some time now, and I'm thankful that the panel of judges from the O.H.A. and Google Inc. understand the great utility and widespread appeal of the "Capsules" concept too.

Thanks to Google (especially those on the Android team), the O.H.A., and my friends and family who have supported me and helped me form ideas. And most thanks, of course, to my Challenge partner, Muthu, in Chennai, India for matching my insane hours to make the application "go". I look forward to many more crazy hours this month to refine and enhance Cooking Capsules for round two!

Wish us luck!!
