Hi friends! This post will no doubt be unlike any other on my site, but I have to boast! My dear Uncle Nunzio Gambale’s company, Locata, has been written up in Wired Magazine, following the announcement of it’s global launch due this September in Portland. Locata will revolutionize the GPS world, and therefore, our world.
My Uncle is one of the most tireless and persistent people I know. Let it be known that many a time, over fine sushi, he has talked me down from the ledge with words of inspiration and encouragement. So, to see this now come to light for him and his company is very exciting.
Let me back up. I had just moved to Los Angeles it was 1997, Nunz was visiting and was showing myself, his brother (Uncle Frank) and Frank’s wife at the time, a device he’d invented that could tell you where things were as you were driving around. This was revolutionary yes, but at the time, it seemed so alien and not mention that GPS was becoming more readily used. Either way, it was the impetus that lead him to improve GPS instead. You know, all in a days work! Shortly after he had returned to Australia, I remember driving myself down to Los Angeles downtown library many times to look up patents on microfiche for him. This was over 10 years ago! So, it is with much pride that I sit here reading about his little engine that could being filled with coal and sent on it’s way.
Congratulations Uncle Nunz! I never once doubted that your tenacity would be validated and that your invention would change the world. Vai! Vai! Vai!
