I finished the Mississippi Madison (episode 1) on Linkedin – the link to that is here. I am trying to keep some unique content on each of my blogs now.
Also published this week the compilation (and some unique stuff) of my blog series on Andersen’s Law of Innovation. It is now available on the Kindle for less than a buck. There are some edits (grammar mostly) and a ton of new content in the on-line compiled version that never made it to my blog. You can find that book here for your Kindle.
Sliding over to Safegov there are a couple new posts there as well (June and July).The July post is a whimsical look at the data center of the future. The June article was a conversation around applications and being cloud ready. You can find that one here.
Sorry for all the marketing of other blogs today but it’s the best way to keep people informed of what and where I am posting. I will be adding the Mississippi Madison episode one to my podcast library in August if you prefer the spoken version. I also added a blog about innovation to my profile on IASA and you can find that one here.
Last I will end with my last bit of marketing. There are two campaigns that are noteworthy on Indiegogo that I would like to share with you. The first one is a personal presence device – I know its been done before. But there are two distinct differences. This one is less than 500 dollars. Many of the PPD’s are more than 2000 dollars per unit. This one leverages a tablet (Android or iPad) to create the connection and act as the brains of the PPD. It is a really great idea for remote workers, sick children or adults so that you can still be in the office (or school) without making everyone else sick or worse falling behind. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/padbot-a-telepresence-robot-cool-fun-affordable-buddy-for-ipad-android-pad/x/3230074
The second and last part of today’s post is the Jibo project. A personal robot system. Interactive robotic system that has so much potential it is scary. They are 100%+ funded and where funded in less than two days. But there are some interesting stretch goals and options coming with more backers. Building on the PPD device this creates a learning robot in your house to help you do the things you need to do. Plus it is simply amazing technology.
