  1. Online video is a pain in the ass

    Now that my new content website is well underway, I’ve had a number of ‘coffee conversations’ with investors and advisors.

  2. Google beware: Wearable technology is more than just seeing and speaking

    Innovations with human-computer interaction technology keep making leaps and bounds. It seems like eons ago when Kinect created a game console that used the human body as a controller; Apple’s Siri made dictating and talking to your phone that much easier (although, definitely not perfect!). Google Glass is bringing the world of Google to a small projected plane of view above your eye. And now there are even competitors for Google Glass even before the product’s release. The Ontario-Based Thalmic Labs is working on the MYO armband, hoping to bring this technology to a new level. If the product lives up to its hype, then not only is wearable technology the wave of the future, but MYO could become a competing technology to Google’s current wearable tech.

  3. Viddy raises $2.86M amid executive departures and an attempted turnaround [Updated]

    Update: In an email response to our request for comment, President JJ Aguhob said, "We didn't raise any new capital. We did some share reissues that triggered the Form D. But the form doesn't show an offsetting redemption, hence it looks like a raise but it's not."

  4. Do you have to be an educator to remake higher education?

    Silicon Valley is enamored with the narrative of the 20-something founder who doesn't know enough of the industry he is disrupting to do otherwise.

  5. Notes from an "app discoverability" panel that wasn't

    Panelists rarely talk about what they say they're going to talk about. Sessions meant to be about the hardware revolution evolve into a discussion of Kickstarter's merits, a pow-wow about which hot-button startup might go public next becomes a call to avoid going public at pretty much any cost, and Google can be called out during a panel it's hosting. You'll almost never get what you (probably didn't) pay for, and that's okay, because these deviations from the conference schedule are often more important than the original programming anyway.

  6. Asana goes after the large enterprise market with “Organizations,” a more IT-friendly version of its collaboration software

    Asana, the collaboration software company started by Facebook insiders Dustin Moskovitz and Justin Rosenstein, has always sold to businesses. The company has said it does not want to be called “Facebook for the enterprise.” But today, the enterprise part, at least, becomes true. The company announced the launch of Asana Organizations, a product tailored for big enterprise clients with thousands of employees.

  7. New Zealand's WIP makes collaborative video editing dead easy

    One of the striking things about the startups I've talked to in New Zealand this week is their ability to work quickly and build products with very little funding. Several prominent startups here fall into that camp – Stqry, which took just four weeks to come to life, is a good example – but collaborative video-editing platform WIP has perhaps demonstrated the most remarkable progress in a tight timeframe, and with not much financial support.

  8. Moxie's new Social Knowledgebase product helps teams access and preserve institutional knowledge

    A week after making its enterprise social collaboration software free to use, Moxie Software today launched its Social Knowledgebase application to combine collaboration with knowledge management. The underlying premise is that the most valuable information in any organizations is in the minds of its individual employees. That knowledge not only needs to be made available in real-time to the rest of the team, but also must be organized, documented, and preserved for the long-term.
