We're really proud of our team at FOOD52 (and their babies, their favorite food movies, and so on) -- so we're thrilled to announce its newest members: Today, Karl Rosaen joins FOOD52 as our VP of Technology, along with the rest of the core team from Real Time Farms.

Karl is a former Google engineer -- he worked on the team that launched the Android phone, as well as on the team that ran the Adwords API. He's also the founder (with his wife Cara) of Real Time Farms, the first ever crowd-sourced nationwide food guide. Since we're the first ever crowd-sourced curated cooking site, we're like internet soulmates, finally coming together.

We're delighted to be working together with Karl and with Real Time Farms, a company we've long admired. As much fun as we have around here, FOOD52 was started with a mission -- in short, to get more people cooking -- and Real Time Farms' mission goes hand-in-hand. 

Please join us in welcoming Karl to the FOOD52 team -- and the community!

This is such a good idea. I've been armchair quarterbacking (to my myself, mostly) since joining FOOD52 in November 2009 as to how great it would be to truly localize many of the community activities and especially, its information sharing. It seems that Real Time Farms is a step in the right direction. My dream site would combine the best of FOOD52, RTF and a user-fueled, photo/other data supported service (like Kullect) to allow community members to report on and help others find the really good stuff that's available locally. E.g., would you like to know where to buy stunning Red Velvet Apricots for that dessert you saw on FOOD52, that you can't wait to make for your dinner party on Friday? Would you like to know what varieties of early apples have been spotted at your local farmers' market this weekend? Would you like to know what butcher will go upstairs into the shop's office to get you an ounce of pink curing salt (so you don't have to order it online) when you need to start curing some pork belly today for bacon you need next week? Anyway, welcome, Karl and RTF! ;o)
