Evomail appears to have stopped maintaining its consumer-facing app
It appears that Wichita startup Evomail is no longer maintaining the free consumer version of its iOS and Android email management application. Periodically through the summer, users have been posting messages on Twitter, Facebook and the app’s iOS and Android download pages saying the app has stopped working. Most recently, several users have said they can’t start using the app because it times out when they try to add an email account. The app on my iPad had stopped receiving messages because…

Method Productions’ office move represents step out from behind the scenes
Gabe Juhnke and Rik Dubiel have been doing video production work under the Method Productions name for about eight years, and it’s been their full-time gig since January of 2013. Still, their company’s move to a new office in Old Town this month represents something of a coming out. Method, now sharing space with Jacque Inc. Photography in the Grant Telegraph Building, has traditionally worked behind the scenes, says new partner Luis Rodriguez, who also works as senior director of software…

Code school lessons: Many parts make up that app in the palm of your hand
Note: I’m blogging for TechFlash about the experience of learning to code through the beta class of Wichita’s new code school. Here’s some background information about this project. One of the biggest things I’ve learned so far in the first few weeks of code school is how much building a Web application is just that — building. I assumed that once I had a programming language under my belt, I’d be able to write something interactive, right off the bat. As it turns out, just about…

A similiar-sized underground facility is in Columbia, Mo., in an area mined out of Baltimore limestone, and a much larger center — more than 16,000 square feet — is in Topeka. Curtis Mead, who leads sales for ISG’s data center services segment,…
