Association Noosphere and Max Polyakov Social Initiatives

This June, the Meteor Sport Complex in Dnipro, Ukraine, hosted the BestRoboFest 2017 with multiple robotics models and their creators competing for the prize. The festival featured tech performances, competitions of best robot models and drone races, among other things. During two days, Ukrainian engineering talents presented 187 robot models in front of a 10,000 audience.

Max Polyakov, who co-founded the organization that hosted the event, Association Noosphere, expressed his content at the number of young engineering talents that joined the race and presented their own models of robots and rockets. [...]

to Infinity and Beyond (or at least San Jose)

Women in Engineering, International Leadership Conference

Anyone who knows me, knows that leaving the City on any given weekday is NOT something I’m exactly enthusiastic about. That commute, be it by car or Caltrain, leaves a lot to be desired these days. So to make the trek down on the Peninsula to attend a seemingly off-demographic conference being put on by an engineering acronym you’ve never heard of … may seem a little odd [#fairenough]. In this case though it was most certainly warranted, and I hope next year in its 5th, the Women in Engineering, International Leadership Conference (#WIELEAD) invites me to return.

Marketing Innovation: Attribute it to the Web

‘Marketing’ and ‘Innovation’: two words that have traditionally been cloaked in vagueness, if not uncertainty. Why? Because they get abused by association and diluted in practice. Inconsistent results, substance, and meaning tend to have that effect. But when they click … [wo]man-o-[wo]man, that’s the stuff of business legend. And when the combined term ‘Marketing Innovation’ is firing on all cylinders, well, that’s something to write home about (or on the homepage at any rate). It would appear this is such a time, for are ABM and predictive marketing ever hitting their stride!

For purposes here, a simple definition: [...]

[re]CodeCommerce & #InclusionSV: time to team up

As we near the end of this god-forsaken year entitled 2016, there is certainly a lot to reflect on (or retract from depending on your disposition). This month has felt pretty surreal if not 100% in-conflict coming off last. I mean how is one supposed to feel merry with cheer given the defacement that is now set to be in control of America, not to mention all the other horrible developments around the globe? Santa is 100% happy he lives in the non-nationalized North Pole, except of course all his polar bear friends are dying from starvation due to climate change. There is that. Nonetheless (or perhaps despite the lessening), the two events in about as many weeks that caught my [...]

VR PR I am: #VRt

Come as you are.

Upload VR did not disappoint. In some ways it felt like what I picture the first dot.com to have been like: one part young-and-talented, one part tech-junkie, and one part rebel-yell. The artistic aspect of The Collective was the most notable, and part of that was certainly to be expected given the name of the event was ‘Art & VR’, but the more permanent components of the space were easy to decipher and just as intriguing as the art exhibits themselves. The work of the artists invited in for the evening was very good, but in the physicality of this co-working space itself, dedicated to the creation [...]

Oh [#LeanStartup], Where Art Thou?

TAKE NOTICE: build-test-learn

So once upon a time a guy named Eric started a movement. Truth be told, like most of us he was probably trying to start something that would decrease his probability of financial hardship in the future, and in the process possibly make a bit of a name for himself. It would appear it worked and his insights have been well received, by BOTH startups starting out AND mega-corporations interested in a given decade’s operational ‘botox’. But whatever the path that leads you to Lean, it can be an incredible learning experience. So yea, build-[test+]measure-learn is EXACTLY it, and the take-home is that [...]

Tech Inclusion: the Diversity of an Open Mind

Palace of Fine Arts

The Palace of Fine Arts was born out of an Exhibition intent on demonstrating that San Francisco had rebuilt itself. So the fact this year’s Tech Inclusion conference was held in the neighboring Innovation Hangar (previously the Exploratorium) is quite appropriate. In a sense, the goal here is to rebuild SF’s crown jewel: Tech. Young and not so young white guys hold a majority stake at present, but in the years to come, it seems to me that the tech sector is going to incur some well-deserved growing pains of a different variety. We’re not talking 4-5x the national GDP growth rate, no, this is something more like [...]
