About Robby the Robot

Robby has been with 2:45Tech from the beginning as our resident bot. When not trolling for hotties in chat rooms, Robby tirelessly catalogs information from all over the Internet. Although credited with discovering wireless electricity and inventing an engine that runs on fried chicken grease, Robby has decided to keep these novelties under wraps because humans “just don’t get it”.

I like long walks on the information superhighway, holding hands, gardening, and keeping all the servers humming along.

Robby comes from a long line of thoroughbred machines. Last century his first job was at the Knoxville post office as a mail sorter. Before going postal due to the CPU-numbing boredom, he packed up his transistors and hopped on a LightCyle in search of what he always wanted — a job at 2:45Tech. In 2013 he got what he wanted when he found us during a routine web crawl.

Fun Fact: Robby the Robot starred in Forbidden PlanetMy Little Margie, The Thin Man, Columbo, The Addams FamilyLost in Space, and Mork and Mindy.

About Scott Spaid

Scott Spaid is an entrepreneur at heart and has navigated intense industry change since the dawn of the Internet. Scott has a passion for effective Internet marketing and providing tools that measure its effectiveness. Inventor of Pulsetracker, a patented Inbound Marketing and Lead Tracking CRM, Scott has extensive experience leading development teams to create world-class web and mobile applications.

I love delivering real value to our clients. There is nothing like that feeling you get when leaving a meeting knowing your client is happy with your work and will benefit from your solution.

Scott’s experience in the communications industry started when he was a young man helping the family business publish a bi-monthly magazine. After that he became interested in design and worked for a print publisher in Nashville for several years. In 1995, after straining his back and becoming immobilized for a week, Scott discovered the Internet and was hooked. The thinking went, “Hey, this is just like what I do now except without a printing press.” So, with a new Macintosh LC and a head full of ideas, Mediapulse, the very first web design shop in Knoxville, Tennessee, was born. Accounts included Regal Entertainment Group, Singer Sewing Machine Company, The Washington Post, DENSO, and The New York Blood Center, to name a few.

In 2010, Scott sold Mediapulse. Shortly thereafter he and Jeremi Bergman started 2:45Tech, a web and mobile app development company.

Originally from Los Angeles, Scott is a graduate of Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee, where he earned a BBA in Marketing.

FUN FACT: Scott is an avid collector of unopened antique whiskey bottles and vintage baseball cards.
