The Philsquare team was very excited to be a part of the redesign and launch of the Lawrence GiveBack website. This great community project gives users a chance to give to their favorite charitable organization and earn a little bit back themselves as a part of their everyday local spending.
Constance Wolfe and the the Lawrence GiveBack team needed the ability to update the site with Lawrence Giveback news and easily add new merchant and charity information to the site directory. Ms. Wolfe requested the site to be built using WordPress, a popular content management tool for websites and blogs and the Philsquare team agreed this was the path to take.
We’ve received some feedback recently: no one thinks there are actually two people named Phil Martinez working at Philsquare. Philsquare is not named because there are two Phils working for the company (offour employees total) as some may believe. It is named because Phil Martinez (founder of the company) started developing a Foursquare-like service a few years ago back when Foursquare, Gowalla, andBrightKite were all brand new baby location based services. He wanted his name within the name of the service, thus Philsquare.
