Welcome Momenta Technologies

Longtime CE members Dan Gordon and Michael Fenchel recently launched their website for their company Momenta Technologies. Check out the members page to see their logo, along with the rest of the CE members.  From their site:

Our dream is to use the power of the Internet to make watching television an interactive and social experience. Television today is a one-way street: the television outputs content, and we consume it. We want to take television to the next level. We want to enable friends all over the world to watch and interact with television content together regardless of where they are. We want people to be able to play along with their favorite game shows, to test their sports knowledge against their friends while watching the big game, to laugh together while watching a funny comedian.
