        Interactive - NCWIT Hero Leverage and engage the millions of users of social network sites
enclosure-voice 1055_ 8/01/11 - The National Center for Women in Technology CEO, Lucy Sanders and w3w3.com Internet Talk Radio anchor, Larry Nelson are talking with Victoria Ransom, founder & CEO of Wildfire Interactive, and serial entrepreneur (3 companies all of which are operating today) and an adventuresome spirit - she once spent over a month living with a remote Amazonian tribe. Wildfire Interactive helps organizations leverage and engage the millions of users of social network sites like Facebook and Twitter. Their web applications allow companies to easily integrate branded interactive campaigns (across all types of social media networks) like sweepstakes, contests and give-aways, utilizing the viral features of the social web to create engaging campaigns. Wildfire also provides powerful analytics so you can measure the impact of these campaigns. Victoria has been an entrepreneur since her early twenties and has developed three companies. As founder & CEO of Wildfire, Victoria led the company to profitability in just one year and has built the company to tens of thousands of customers, over 140 employees, and five offices worldwide. w3w3® Media Network is proud and honored to bring another NCWIT interview to our audience.

Our partnership with Lucy Sanders and NCWIT is highly rewarding. The women we interview are bright guiding lights for the future of our youth, generously sharing their experiences - challenges and all. They are inspiring, often humorous and motivating. This series is a real jewel and a valuable set of tools for the future of young women and everyone who has the good fortune to listen.

Hire the absolute best people: It's all about people
Art Rancis, International Entrepreneurenclosure-voice 1057_ 8/01/11 - Larry sat down with Art Rancis to talk about leaders and entrepreneurs. Larry asked, "What are the biggest challenges facing entrepreneurs and leaders, today?" Art pointed out that he is a big people person - "...without people, nothing happens! Frankly the biggest challenge for those companies today is, that many of them have lost sight of hiring the absolute best people." A book that Art recommends, written by a Boulder author, David Thielen, is The 12 Simple Secrets of Microsoft Management. And Bill Gates offered number four, which is "always, always hire the very best you can find'. Larry tried flipping the coin and asked, what are the biggest opportunities today? Knowing Art you may guess it is '...hiring the very best people. It's not a cop out. You will maximize and realize a lot of success if you hire the very best people who can execute." We've all heard the stories of great products failing because of lack of execution. And yet a lot of very mediocre products that succeed because of great execution. "So, it's still people, you've got to bring them in and thrive as a company that way." Art gives advice to individuals and organizations all the time - What is that advice? Art said, "Would you be upset with me if I said, hire the very best people." ... It's a very strong belief for Art! But he adds, "Stay nimble. In today's environment you've got to move faster. That's a two edged sword. While you have lots more information available to you to be a better decision maker, but with the pressures of cell phones, texting and quickly turning around decisions - sometimes you may not think thoroughly enough." Larry couldn't agree more, referring to his book, Mastering Change in the Midst of Chaos, he points to a line he wrote, "People are the source of all problems, and people are the source of all solutions."

Phil Weiser, Dean CU Law School, Exec Dir. 
        Silicon Flatirons Entrepreneurship, Technology, Law and Building a Winning Team
1049_ 7/18/11 - "I am glad to let you all know that my plan for a two year leave of absence-and no more than that-is coming true. Starting this July 1st, I will assume the role as Dean of the Law School, as well as taking back the reigns from Dale Hatfield as Executive Director at Silicon Flatirons," wrote Phil Weiser to his friends. "I am delighted about the prospect of rejoining the Law School and Silicon Flatirons community. I look forward to working with you as we write the next chapter of Silicon Flatirons initiatives and projects. Dale Hatfield's service to our country, our community, and Silicon Flatirons are far beyond any words I can offer. He remains a true friend, role model, and mentor. Additionally, the Silicon Flatirons leadership team-Brad Bernthal's vision and top flight execution of the Entrepreneurial Initiative, Paul Ohm's path breaking insights and thought-provoking programming as part of the Information Technology/Intellectual Property Initiative, and Anna Noschese's stellar work as the Center's Program Director-all stepped up in my absence. Our Executive and Advisory Board members surrounded our team with superb insight, direction, and support. And with my responsibilities as Dean, I will depend on them all continuing that leadership, along with Dale Hatfield's continued support and that of our newest addition as a resident Senior Fellow, Preston Padden. I am also glad to announce that, two years after Dale was handed the baton I take it back, at an event to honor Dale's service taking place on Thursday, July 7th at 7 pm at the University of Colorado Law School." Silicon Flatirons pursues three basic goals: to elevate the debate around technology policy issues; to facilitate networking, the development of "human capital" and the promotion of entrepreneurship in the Colorado technology community; and to inspire student interest in technology law and entrepreneurship." LISTEN and WATCH this very interesting and informative video series.

Debora Langer, Board Member, CTP Convergence of telecommunications along with the smart grid
enclosure-voice 1054_ 8/01/11 - "Two main initiatives come to mind", said Debora Langer. "One is the convergence of telecommunications along with the smart grid. The other emerging technology that we're seeing involves getting broadband out to the rural communities with 4G and LTE solutions." Debora Langer serves on the board of CTP, the Communications Technology Professionals, for the second year now. A favorite organization for w3w3®, which we've covered for many years, going back to when it was called Denver Telecommunication Professionals. They've been through a great deal, the telecommunications industry was hit so hard a number of years ago - and this organization not only survived but in fact has really grown. Debora tells us that Colorado is really embracing the progressive technologies and CTP is working hard to keep their programs current and consistent with what is being implemented in Colorado. Larry pointed out, "When some people first heard the tech/grid relationship with telecommunications there was some confusion." Debora said, "They didn't really understand it, you're absolutely right. And, that's part of CTP's mission is to educate the community and highlight what's going on in Colorado. With the rural broadband initiative, we're going to have an event in September. What we're seeing there, we've got EagleNet that was just awarded $100 million, and we've got Open Range Communications that got $257 million... so the State of Colorado is embracing the need to get rural broadband out to communities and then all the applications and all the community services that go along with that. Healthcare, education and public safety are part of why you have a broadband network." Listen for more...

Stu Stern, CEO, Gorilla Logic The most important differentiator is that they are free
enclosure-voice 1056_ 8/01/11 - We're here to talk about a very interesting topic that is important to all businesses, whether they're techies or not. And we're here with Stu Stern who is the CEO of Gorilla Logic and the creator of a couple of programs, FoneMonkey and FlexMonkey. You know, there are a lot of people who love 'open source' and there are people who don't know anything about open source and don't use it. Larry asked Stu, “How are open source tools different than the other things out in the market place?” Listen to this interview and you will learn about the importance of functional testing tools, and how they can not only help your engineering teams with automated testing, but can be expanded to help with a companies unit testing and continuous integration environments. This interview discusses the importance of functional testing tools and how making these tools being free and open source can benefit an entire ecosystem of developers, Development Managers and CTO’s looking for ways to make their applications better for the companies they work for. Stu said, "Next week Gorilla Logic is releasing a new version of FlexMonkey. Stu explains their two tools are each for automated testing of Rich Internet Applications (RIA). FoneMonkey is for IOS applications, those are iPhone and iPad applications. And FlexMonkey is for the Adobe Flex Platform which runs any Flash player. Essentially they replace manual testers with automated testing, making the testing process much faster and more reliable." There's much more...

Interdisciplinary Approach to Policy Research & Growth
Dale Hatfield, 7-25-20111053_ 7/25/11 - “I did not expect that, at this point in my career, I would be taking on new responsibilities. But when Phil Weiser was called to service in Washington, D.C., I viewed the opportunity to step in as Executive Director of Silicon Flatirons as too important and too interesting to pass up. Phil has, in characteristic fashion, worked diligently with myself, Anna Noschese, Paul Ohm, Brad Bernthal, and the other members of the Executive Committee (Ray Gifford, our chair, Sue Wyman, Dick Green, and Tom Lookabaugh) to ensure a smooth and effective transition. I share his confidence and enthusiasm about the program's future, even though I know that I, like all of us, will miss his vision, energy, and leadership. Washington's gain is our loss,” a quote from Dale Hatfield. Phil Weiser recently said, “I am also glad to announce that, two years after Dale accepted the baton from me, I will take it back, with an event to honor Dale's service.”

Phil Weiser returns to SFC as Dean CU Law School
