Pitching and Blackspotting

That’s it. My blackspotting dreams can come true anywhere. They’ve invented anti-wifi paint! 🙂 I genuinely can imagine a time in the not too distant future where cafes advertise that they are blackspots or, through the use of anti-wifi paint, they offer blackspot rooms.

The future of Nocci?
