Getting technology to leverage and access what is needed
Phil Becker, PLB Ventures and CoFounder, Defrag Conenclosure-voice 1128 12/19/11 - We're talking to Phil Becker, PLB Ventures, today at the DefragCon 2011. Phil is one of the cofounders of Defrag, although his career began in the aerospace industry [with some pretty impressive accomplishments]. Phil has been in the computer industry since 1967 and has his signature on both the Moon and Mars as part of computer communications projects he built for the Apollo and Viking missions. He has created technology to link computers for both the pre-Internet and Internet eras. As an entrepreneur he has built and taken public companies in the computer communications space. In 1992 he founded ISPCON and grew it to be the premiere Internet Service Provider Trade Show. Phil was the former Editor-in-Chief of Digital ID World and former Managing Partner of Digital Identity World, LLC before selling DIDW to IDG in 2007. Phil tells us that today, that throughout his varied career, he realizes now that what he's always been focused on is the way technology amplifies each of us individually and gives us more autonomy and more control over our world. He said, "I think here at Defrag you're seeing the same thing show up again, sometimes recognized and sometimes unrecognized. That is whether talking about the consumerization of IT in the enterprise, the access to data wherever we are, or whether it's mobile computing - it's really all about how does the individual who is trying to get something in their life, get the technology to help them have the leverage and access that they need. In Larry's latest book, Mastering Change in the Midst of Chaos, he says, "People are the source of all problems and people are the source of all solutions." Phil says, yes and in the end that's what this technology is all for. I mean we aren't building robots to take care of other robots. We're building them to take care of us and make life easier. This conference which Brad Feld, Eric Norlin and Phil Becker put together, is really all about that wave of where it all comes together, what it looks like and to take that next step. What solutions are created by the next step and what new problems are created by the next step. "Every solution is the source of its own problem." There's more....

Bart Lorang, CEO/Founder, FullContact Couple of years after you start your venture
enclosure-voice 1130_ 12/19/11 - At Defrag 2011 we met and talked with Bart Lorang, CEO and Founder of FullContact. Attracted to his booth by all of the activity, Larry asked Bart to give us an overview of what FullContact was. Bart replied, “FullContact is the API that keeps contact information current. Any software application can 'bake' our capability inside their APP to improve, enrich and de-duplicate their people data.” “That's mailing lists and everything else?” asked Larry. “Yes, emails, phone numbers, titles, photos, addresses, names, all that core contact information that lives inside of software. FullContact's customers are CRM platforms, email marketing tools, marketing automation tools - we work with a lot of people data and make that data better. This is an API for software developers, it's technical, but it's very simple to consume for a developer. It really takes only a few lines of code. Larry asked Bart who runs into many businesses, big and small, entrepreneurs and the like, “What advice would he give business people today?” Bart's reply, "My advice to entrepreneurs is follow your passion, because as an entrepreneur you're facing long odds and if you don't have passion for it, you're not going to love it, and you can't do great work if you don't love it. Most importantly you're going to need persistence to go along with that passion. Because, it really doesn't start kicking in until a couple of years after you start your venture that you really start seeing success. It doesn't ever happen overnight."

He profits Most Who Serves Best, August 1911
Governor John Hickenlooperenclosure-voice 1124_ 12/12/11 - With over 700 in attendance, the Colorado Rotarians celebrate the culmination of 100 years in Colorado at the 6th annual state of the state luncheon. Christy Ramee, President, Rotary Club of Denver Lodo introduces Governor John Hickenlooper. The first motto of Rotary International, "He profits Most Who Serves Best", was approved at the second Rotary Convention, held in Portland, Oregon, in August 1911. Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, a geologist-turned brew pub pioneer who had never run for political office (not even student council) before being elected Denver Mayor in 2003, was elected Governor of Colorado on Nov. 2, 2010. One of the topics the governor talked about is one of Colorado’s challenges. Colorado is ranked #42 out of 50 states on per student costs, speed and access to the internet at our schools. Our neighboring states of Nebraska, Wyoming and Utah offer high speed internet access at one-tenth the current Colorado costs. In 2000, approximately 45,000 classes throughout the US school systems were taken online. In 2009, approximately three million classes were taken online. The expectation is that by 2019, one half of all high school classes will be online. The students of Colorado deserve access to high speed internet at an affordable price to meet the challenges of the 21st century global economy! Here’s the solution. With the support of the three Rotary Districts in the State of Colorado and many current and former Rotarians, the Rotary Club of Denver assisted EAGLE-Net (Educational Access Gateway Learning Environment Network, ) to acquire a $100.6 million federal stimulus grant, plus $46 million additional in in-kind services to install high speed internet to 234 community anchor points (CAIs) throughout the State. These CAIs include all 178 school district buildings. The other CAIs are libraries, museums and some colleges and universities not already served. This network is referred to as the “Middle Mile” and construction has already started...get involved and listen, there's much more...

Getting Internet access for the entire State of Colorado
Ron Burton, President Nominee, Rotary International and Larry Nelson, Director/Founder, Internet Talk Radioenclosure-voice 1127_ 12/19/11 - We are at the Colorado Rotary State of the State and Culmination of 100 Years Anniversary Celebration of Rotary in Colorado and joined by Ron Burton, President Nominee of Rotary International. Ron explains the way their system works, he is currently the president nominee, will be elected at the Bangkok convention in May as president elect and then becomes president of Rotary International and serves in 2013-2014. Larry asked Ron, “What's happening in Rotary now?” A very big deal, Rotarians are trying to complete the "End Polio Now" (Polio Irradiation Campaign) which has been going on longer than many would like. (Larry has much interest in the topic of polio, as he had it as a youth.) Ron tells us we are getting very close. There have been about 570 cases in the world this year, which is about 37-40% of what it was last year. "But", says Ron, “we still have to finish the job. We promised the children of the world in 1987 they would live in a polio free world - and we're making progress but we have to finish the job." Rotary has stellar partners in that process. There is the World Health Organization, the Center for Disease Control, UNICEF, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and of course, the World Rotarians are on that list. There are 34,000 Rotary Clubs in the world and 200 countries and political subdivisions. Every Rotary club is autonomous, so they can pick and choose the projects they want to do. But every Rotary Club does many, many things around the community. One of the big catalysts that occurred here in Colorado is the Internet access for the entire State which puts Colorado in First Place! And, the catalyst for that was a network of 174 Rotary Clubs in the State of Colorado. It wouldn't have happened without them! Rotarians live by the four-way test, Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Does it build goodwill and better friendship? Is it beneficial to all concerned? If you can answer those four questions in a positive way...there's much more to listen to...

Ian Brown, Director, Demand Generation, Mashery It's all about the data and how it's presented
enclosure-voice 1129_ 12/19/11 - We're back at the Defrag Conference, lot of great speakers, super booths, lot of executives, some very interesting people and some money walking around too. Based in San Francisco with offices in New York and London, we're speaking with Ian Brown, Director, Demand Generation (for the rest of us, that's marketing) at Mashery. So, what does Mashery do? They help companies with APIs, essentially get those APIs out to developers, whether that be internal or external, but essentially they provide a layer of infrastructure that allows the developers to be able to scale, allows them to analyze who is actually using their APIs. In addition to that Mashery also provide a developers outreach center. At we find this all rather amazing. We started our Internet Talk Radio Show in 1999 and it's changed a little bit since then. Ian agrees, just thinking back to last year, "You would hear API and every once-and-awhile you'd have to throw in what API means [Application Programming Interface], you'd have to actually say that. This year people are throwing API around very nonchalantly assuming everyone knows what that is." On the horizon Ian expects to see APIs forward to individual businesses - more like turning business into a platform. Where now you have individuals accessing data via APIs and to then build other things. Now what's happening is you're seeing a variety of different applications being built based on these APIs and in some cases you're seeing brand-new partnerships being formed thanks to these APIs. It's pretty amazing and from there you can see almost anything happening because it's all about the data and how it's presented. Again, it's up to the smart individuals at Defrag to one day make that happen.

Bill Heuston, Sr. Account Executive, ViaWest Building a phenomenal culture and a real value proposition
enclosure-voice 1125_ 12/12/11 - We're back at the Defrag Conference, lot of great speakers, super booths, lot of executives, some very interesting people and some money walking around too, by the way. We're talking with Bill Heuston who is senior account executive at ViaWest. We interviewed Bill a few years ago. Bill has been with ViaWest for nine years. Via West is 12 years old so Bill has been around for a good chunk of it. When we last interviewed the co-founder, Roy Dimoff, he pointed out they have a lot of long term employees. Bill adds, "There are. We've got a phenomenal culture - not much turnover, people like to stay here." Larry asked for an overview. Bill replied, "ViaWest, got started in 1999" [Coincidentally that's the same year got started.], "here in Denver, Colorado, slowly growing in the hosting business, and acquiring data centers around the country. And, 12 years later, fast-forward, we are now the largest privately held collocation hosting company in North America." That's quite a success story. Bill's focus is in sales on the entrepreneurial and enterprise space. It's a big gambit, but any company that has a mission critical web application, are the people Bill loves to talk to. He likes to solve problems in a hybrid manner. The thing that ViaWest brings to the table, that's a real value proposition vs. all the other hosting companies that they compete with, is that they have all the core competencies under one roof. They have collocation, dedicated hosting and cloud computing. All three of those are core competencies to ViaWest and value to clients in that they can build solutions that are what Bill calls 'hybrid' and use pieces and parts of each one, all under one roof and cross connected to make it a seamless connection. Larry recalls, way back when ViaWest was first launching there were many other hosting companies that had started but are no longer in business. Bill tells us that seven out of ten of ViaWest competitors when they got started are not longer here. That's 70% and ViaWest continued on to become this super success.
