Scumbag Turned Scholar Creeps into the App Store
Erie, Pennsylvania – The AppFlixion Group introduces Scholar or Scumbag 1.0 for iOS. With Scholar or Scumbag users put skills to the test. Given a picture, users simply decide whether the an individual in history was a scholar or scumbag.
History from past to present has been filled with scholars. We’ve been graced with talent from Einstein to Edison and Shakespeare to Salinger. But the world wouldn’t be complete without a few scumbags, as well. Scott McCausland, Co-Founder of The AppFlixion Group, jumped head-first into the “scumbag” category in May of 2005. McCausland knowingly and illegally uploaded Star Wars Episode III to the file sharing site where he was an administrator. As it turns out, the FBI warnings that you see at the start of every film are no joke and McCausland found that out the hard way.
After serving several months in a federal prison, McCausland decided that he needed to make a change. In 2011, after previously obtaining a degree in Management Information Systems, McCausland received his MBA from Penn State University. Enter, the scholar.
“When you make a mistake of the caliber that I did, it stays with you for long after the initial consequences. A lot of people are stuck on my past, but I’m not,” McCausland said. “I’m a new person with new goals and new passions.”
One of those passions is running a successful iPhone app development business. McCausland, along with partner Josh Layhue, made their initial mark in the App Store with Bust A Caption in late 2012. Their second title is set to be released on February 12, 2013. The app is appropriately entitled, Scholar or Scumbag.
