Amazing story: Boulder to Disney 871_ 8/2/10- Lucy Sanders, Founder and CEO of the National Center for Women in Technology describes Krista Marks as, "A rare blend of technical accomplishment and social passion and entrepreneurial spirit. You cannot spend more than five seconds with Krista without getting all kinds of great information and energy and passion!" Krista is the co-founder of Kerpoof Studios which was acquired by Disney in 2008 and Krista is now the general manager of Disney Online Kerpoof Studios (and still based in Boulder). Lucy asked, "How did you get interested in technology?" Her interesting reply, "My entry into technology was not so smooth. When I went to college, I didn't even know about technology or pursuing a career in technology which for me, was electrical engineering. [But obviously there are a number of careers in technology.] For me, in high school, I gravitated to mathematics, science and problem solving, these were the areas I liked. Fortunately when I got to orientation for college, I sat next to a student who said they were going to major in electrical engineering. I didn't know what that is. "What is that?" And she said, 'I know that if you really like math and physics, it's the best major to have. I said, "Oh my god, those are my two favorite things. "So I fell into it. This is why NCWIT and the things you're doing, Lucy, is so critical, so important. I would like every student to be aware of the available opportunities when they're choosing a career. I did end up there and loved technology. In fact, from that point on I really wanted to be involved in designing technology. I spent the first eleven years designing custom electronics, and got to work around the world." In the first of many future integrations of Kerpoof technology, Disney.com has launched new features on its popular Characters portal (www.Disney.com/Characters). Now, when guests visit pages for characters such as Mickey and Friends, they will be able to create their very own customized pictures using an intuitive graphical interface. There's more...

Financial challenges, Big GAAP and Little GAAP 1491_ 1/27/14 -
It is technical and critical... Larry and Pat attended the Financial Executives International (FEI Colorado) monthly chapter meeting and interviewed the keynote speaker Greg Anton who is a founding partner of Anton Collins Mitchell LLP, (ACM) a Denver, Colorado based CPA firm. Greg was speaking about financial reporting for private companies and talked about two elements of business reporting. One, FASB the Financial Accounting Standards Board producing differential standards for private companies that are GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) based. We also talked about how there are 29 million private companies in the United States and 15,000 public companies in the US. And how the financial reporting rules really are written for the 15,000 public companies. So when we have to produce GAAP based financial statements, the private company has to follow the public company rules. So the Private Company Council over at FASB is creating some small nuances and changes in the standards that are allowable for the private company to follow and still be in compliance with GAAP. In addition the AICPA has created a financial reporting framework for small businesses that don't need to produce GAAP based financial statements but they want to produce accurate reliable financial information for the managers of the business, for the business owners, the investors as well as for lenders that might lend money to the business where the active financial report information is produced in an accurate, reliable and consistent way. So the financial reporting framework itself, creates substantial changes in financial reporting and it really marries some of the GAAP principles and some of the Tax Principles on a simplified basis to create a financial reporting framework that is relevant and useful for a small private business. Really Main Street type of accounting versus Wall Street... Listen for more....

Women in technology, engineering and mathematics
1648_ 12/8/14 -
Keynote speaker for Defrag 2014 David Barnes, program director for Emerging Internet Technology, IBM Software Group Strategy, has a keen interest in the further education of our young women beginning as early as K thru 12. You might even call it a passion and he says IBM shares this passion. Women in technology, engineering and mathematics is one of the most important things for all of us. We just don't have enough girls excited about this field, but yet it is the field that is moving so quickly and there're so many good jobs - so I think there is a lot we have to do, to reach out to them. Overall, David says, IBM has some of the smartest women in technology. We continue to try to bring them into the company, but there's not a big enough pipeline. David is working with Michigan Tech on their High School Enterprise program. We all in the technology industry want more, so we have to start earlier to get them interested... Larry and Pat - w3w3.com, couldn't agree more and encourage you to check out the National Center for Women and Information Technology Channel here on w3w3.com.
