Mike Ihbe advises, Piggy back on trends and the social
Mike Ihbe, Application Platform Engineer, Yammer enclosure-voice 1214_ 5/28/12 - As the "cloud" becomes a common platform, web applications still live in a "stovepipe" world. At the Glue Conference, we met folks who are exploring the new technologies that are forming around web applications in a post-cloud world. We caught up with Mike Ihbe, Application Platform Engineer with Yammer. Yammer is the social intranet, providing social collaboration tools for people to get work done on their intranet and leverage the social mechanisms that are so popular in today's world. We are talking intranet, Yammer is for inside your company so you can collaborate with your coworkers on projects or anything you do during your normal job, you can do online with Yammer. Larry asked Mike what he sees down the road for Yammer. Mike said, "We're adding features all the time. We started as kind of a Twitter for the enterprise and we worked our way up to a fully featured intranet suite. We've just acquired this company called 'One Drum" they do a lot of file sync. So we'll have a lot of "DropBox" type features now. We're integrating more and more of your offline work with Excel documents and whatnot into the Yammer experience. Larry asked if Yammer works with large, medium or small companies and Mike told us they work with every size. In fact they have accounts with 85% of the Fortune 500, and small and medium size businesses are a huge part of our business too. Larry asked Mike what advice he would give entrepreneurs today. Mike said, "Piggy back on trends actually. We're piggy-backing on social and the other trend we found is enterprise tools basically. So, enterprise tools are very old and we're capitalizing on the cloud to deliver high quality, consumerized, enterprise products...listen for more...

Bill Soards, President, AT&T Colorado - Chairman of the Board, Colorado Technology Association Bill Soards, Public policy initiatives and wireless radio spectrum
enclosure-voice 1211_ 5/21/12 - Wireless radio spectrum is probably the hottest topic in the industry today! Twelve years ago Bill Soards began working with Indiana Bell... aka, Ameritech, SBC and became AT&T over the course of time. But the company has been around over 100 years and Bill has had the opportunity of being in a couple different places. He's been here in Colorado just over three years now, and is the president of AT&T Colorado. As we learned last week, he is also the chairman of the board of the Colorado Technology Association. "A fabulous organization that advocates for all the various software, hardware, IT companies all across the state - it's a great organization to be a part of." he said. The state legislature is wrapping up their activities for the year. Bill said, “AT&T and a number of communications companies and stakeholders across the state were heavily involved this year. They worked to support a piece of legislation called, Senate Bill 157, a kind of telecommunications modernization act of 2012 - but it failed, unfortunately. For the last number of years there's been a lot of conversation about the telecom regulatory environment in Colorado. Most states update their definitions and telecom laws about every two or three years. Unfortunately in Colorado, it's been nearly two decades. That's been the subject of debate for the last two years. There's a lot at stake here, technology and communications are at the heart of our economic engine. Whether it's physical infrastructure or wireless infrastructure, we just need to update our state statutes to recognize that traditional telephone service isn't what it used to be. We need to clean those things up to encourage investment and jobs, and deployment of technology across Colorado. It's a competitive market place and as states and countries all across the world are doing everything possible to try to get infrastructure and broadband dollars into their various locations - we need Colorado to pay more attention to this. Nationally most of the conversation is about wireless. The CDC estimates that nearly 1/3 of Americans no longer have a traditional telephone in their home. We're seeing just amazing growth in wireless. It's not just telephones, it's tablets and GPS devices, it's gaming systems - there's just a massive explosion of all of these new devices that utilize the wireless network and that's causing quite a bit of congestion. Wireless radio spectrum is probably the hottest topic in the industry today.” ...listen now...

Benchmarking: Are women leading alongside men?
Marie Wilson, Lucy Sanders & Larry Nelson782_ 2/1/2010 enclosure-voice
In 1998, Marie Wilson founded The White House Project in recognition of the need to build a truly representative democracy – one where women lead alongside men in all spheres. Since its inception, The White House Project has been a leading advocate and voice on women’s leadership. An advocate of women’s issues for more than 30 years, Marie Wilson is founder and President of The White House Project, co-creator of Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work ® Day and author of Closing the Leadership Gap: Why Women Can and Must Help Run the World (Viking 2004). The National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) hosted the White House Project Benchmarking study. Marie led the eye-opening program. Lucy Sanders, the CEO for the National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT) along with Larry Nelson from interviewed Marie after the program. The White House Project, a national, nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization, 501(c)(3), aims to advance women’s leadership in all communities and sectors, up to the U.S. presidency. By filling the leadership pipeline with a richly diverse, critical mass of women, we make American institutions, businesses and government truly representative. Through multi-platform programs, The White House Project creates a culture where America’s most valuable untapped resource—women—can succeed in all realms. To advance this mission, The White House Project strives to support women and the issues that allow women to lead in their own lives and in the world. When women leaders bring their voices, vision and leadership to the table alongside men, the debate is more robust and the policy is more inclusive and sustainable. Listen, there's much more...

Adam Wilsosn, Chief Software Architect/Founder Adam Wilson, these events are populating developers creating apps
enclosure-voice Larry Nelson, Executive Director/Founder, Internet Talk Radio - Ranked Number One by Google...1213_ 5/28/12 - It's been about two years since we talked with Adam Wilson, a Boulder TechStar 2010 alum - their name was GearBox at that time and has since been changed to Orbotix. We talked to Adam at the Glue Conference. And Orbotix makes Sphero, the robotic ball that you control with your smart phone or tablet device. At first glance, Sphero appears to be a glowing orb you can drive around. But what is really interesting is the sensors inside allow you to pick Sphero up in your hands and allow you to control objects on the screen, or games on the screen, while moving the Sphero around in three dimensions, in your hand. Adam tells us they've done a lot of work in 'augmented reality'. "Sphero is a universally unique ball. It's a circle you can identify from anywhere - we have this moving fiducial, a recognizable object in our screen that we can do a lot of interesting game play with. The fact that we have an SDK really speaks to the techies, so for iOS, Android or you can write an application for the ball that does what you want it to. Down the road 'augmented reality' we see as the big play that a lot of companies are going towards. Orbotix has an edge on that just because they have something in the real world that they can control. Not only that, with the SDK, Orbotix is having a 'Hack Tour' going around the country (NYC, Seattle, Boston, Austin, San Francisco - here in Boulder where 100 people show up. They give all of them a Spheros, and the winner in two different categories gets $5,000. for writing the best application for Sphero. So these events are populating developers, people creating apps." Now there are hundreds of apps that they don't even create themselves...

Christie with Eric Bloch, Director, Community at MarkLogic Eric Bloch says Search engine technology has been proven to scale
enclosure-voice 1215_ 5/28/12 - We're talking with Eric Bloch, Director of Community at MarkLogic here at the Glue Conference, and it is exciting, so many interesting people and companies here.... Larry asked Eric to give us an overview of what MarkLogic does. They make database software, but it's a unique, non-relational database. It's a database that's built from the ground up on search engine technology and search engine indexing techniques - enough so that sometimes people think of MarkLogic as a search engine instead of a database. Search engine technology has been proven to scale the way Google does, and so often customers come to MarkLogic to solve complicated big data problems. The bulk of their customers today are medium size to large, as well as a number of organizations in the government. They actually have people who use the software who aren't formally their customers, because they give away a copy of their software to developers to do things with. So those are often individuals and sometimes very small companies. Eric tells us they've seen some interesting use cases for big data technologies and big data problems where people have more and more data that they have to manage quickly and make smart decisions. They're working with a top five bank to help them. There's been news about banks and the problem of understanding where they are and what their positions are. It turns out, while you might think managing a trade is a pretty simple thing, but in fact banks trade these complicated things that are hard to model. They get all sorts of financial instruments that get described as ...listen for more...

Chris Coughlin, Revenue North Chris Coughlin, Business Conference Focused on Revenue Growth
enclosure-voice 1211_ 5/21/12 - Meet Chris Coughlin. Chris has a fantastic, interesting background. He is an entrepreneur and while this isn't the subject of our discussion today, Chris is involved in football coaching. His most successful business actually trains 35,000 football coaches each year in conferences across the country. Chris also does a little high school coaching in Colorado Springs. With that as a background, we're talking to Chris about his conference business, Revenue North - they have a conference coming up here in Denver on June 27th. Chris has a high interest in the "Blue Ocean Strategy" taken from the book of the same title (written by W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne). What it did for Chris was to give a word picture to the way he's approached business his whole life. The word picture is, a red ocean, full of blood, representing a market with a lot of competitors fighting each other over the same ground. It's everyone competing along the same dynamic. If you can break into a blue ocean (the name of the book and a great word picture), out of the red ocean to the great blue sea, where there is unbounded opportunity to travel and cover as much ground as you want. Now we all have competition, but if you can develop your product or your pricing strategy - ideally both - you can make it so really you don't have competitors. Then, you're in the blue ocean. A great example is Apple / iTunes - they didn't approach the market in the same way as the people operating in the standard red ocean. Larry asked, "How does that strategy translate into value for your customers today?" Chris replied, using the Revenue North Conference here in Denver as an example. Chris was going to take his staff to a marketing conference about 18 months ago. The cost was staggering, a conference fee of $895 per person, plus air fare and hotel. It was going to be a $10 - $15K operation, plus a lot of coordination and a lot of headaches. "So" Chris said, "there are tons of business training options, the w3w3® website is one - it's great." Chris had to find a blue ocean strategy. How could he train business people including his own staff - but do it at a spectacular price, get a much better product than they could get anywhere else and make it local. He created Revenue North. "We've got 42 different sessions a person can hit in a day, seven concurrent sessions. Compared to $895 we can do it for $99."

Dave Allen, Associate Vice President, 
        Technology Transfer, University of Colorado Future success meant David Allen
had to give up his tenure

enclosure-voice 1211_ 5/21/12 - David Allen, Associate Vice President for Technology Transfer at the University of Colorado is featured in the Profile of a Leader Series here on w3w3® Media Network. Before they got into the Leader Profile, Larry asked for David's forecast for the coming year. David said, "It's going to be a tough year. The economic horizon is looking a little brighter than it has for the last 12 months or so, but we're not seeing any finances, very little activity in M&A at our level; We see some of the ice starting to crack and hopefully melt; But for new companies and new ventures, which is our bread and butter, there's very little. I'm an eternal optimist and I know it's going to get better. For years we've known we would be in a revenue trough (we talked about this on your show before), we planned for that, we're going to be able to make it through that." David has a very interesting background and Larry had many questions including, "Who influenced you the most, he said his parents more than anyone else. But he thought about Elinor Ostrom who has won the Nobel Prize for Economics this year. She was David's advisor when working on his PhD at Indiana University. She is an absolutely wonderful person. What I learned from her was a sense of patience, to challenge yourself and surround yourself with bright intelligent people. I am immensely pleased to see her win, the first woman to ever have done that." Larry asked, "Can you imagine a failure you couldn't overcome, you had to live with?" David was a professor at Penn State, he had an opportunity to go to the Business School - in order to do that he had to give up his tenure. Tenure is hard earned a torturous process and he was turning his back on it. His friends and colleagues thought he was insane...there are many leadership suggestions...listen for more...
