Yo.

That’s it.

Just Yo.

Capital Y; lower case O.

It’s a new messaging app with a twist, I guess you could say. You can text somebody else with the Yo app. But all you can say is…Yo.

Here’s the yo-crazy part: The guy who built it has moved from Israel to San Francisco. He’s opened an office and hired staff. He’s looking for “strategic partners.”

And he’s raised a million dollars from investors.

…yo.

C’mon…tell me we’re not in a tech bubble.

Go ahead.

I dare you.

Yo.
