Okay, I am weird (tell me something that I don’t know, say most of my friends).  For Christmas I wanted a Nike Apple Watch to go with my existing FitBit and Garmin fitness trackers (I look sort of like a cyborg in the photo below…which is always cool). While I was intrigued by the ability to do all sorts of cool things on the Apple Watch (like take a phone call and talk into my wrist watch like Dick Tracy), the thing that most intrigued me was the ability to buy third-party apps that could yield detailed exercise and health data.  I was hoping that this detailed exercise and health data could help me understand what effect particular behaviors or activities (or lack of particular behaviors and activities) were having on my overall health. Why is this important to me?  You can thank articles like “Unexpected Heart Attack Triggers” for my health and exercise anxiety.... (more)

While the disjointed components have risen and fallien with the VC tide for some time now, a coherent roadmap is emerging for marketing a brand, product or service via social media.

Saint Arnold Brewing Company's Fashion Advice for Spring: Go Scruffy

HOUSTON, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 02/18/08 -- Whiskers are making a comeback this spring, thanks to Saint Arnold Brewing Company (www.saintarnold.com), the oldest craft brewery in Texas. For the second straight year, the Houston brewery has called upon Texans to put down their shavers from New Year's Day through March 17th for its St. Patrick's Day Donegal Beard Contest. A Donegal is a beard with no mustache, similar to what a leprechaun would wear. The contest was inspired by the documentary, "Growin' a Beard," which depicts a similar annual competition that has been held in Shamrock, Texas since 1938. The film's director, Mike Woolf, has agreed to be a judge of this year's Saint Arnold competition. "We are about seven weeks into the 12-week beard cultivation period and the beard has grown out enough that my wife will finally kiss me again," said Brock Wagner, founde... (more)

Saint Arnold Wins Gold, Prepares to Bid Farewell to Original Brewery

HOUSTON, September 28, 2009 - The crew from Saint Arnold Brewing Company (www.saintarnold.com), the oldest craft brewery in Texas, is returning from the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) with gold. They won't bother finding a spot to hang the medal, though, because their offices and brewing operations will soon be moving to their new brewery in a historic building on the north side of downtown Houston. Judges in the Munich Style Helles category awarded the gold medal to Saint Arnold Summer Pils, the brewery's summer seasonal. This is the fourth time Saint Arnold Summer Pils has earned a medal at the GABF in this category.  It previously won silver in 2008, 2005 and 2003.  The brewery has now won a total of 13 medals at the GABF over the past 11 years. Saint Arnold Summer Pils is brewed every spring and available during the summer months throughout Texas. It is a c... (more)

AWS Workshop, Chennai

With the onset of the Monsoons in Chennai there were Cloud of a different kind looming, and the Met Department was evangelizing them; there was also another Cloud Evangelist in Chennai, Jinesh Varia evangelizing Clouds of different kind, the Amazon Clouds. Event and Filling Gaps The event kicked off with Bobby Varghese from CSS Corp doing a keynote for the workshop. Bobby spoke about CSS adoption of the AWS and how they have come up with products and use cases based on AWS. The real clouds were holding back Jinesh from reaching the venue. So Ezhilaran Babaraj(Ezhil), from CSS Labs, and Lakshmanan Narayan(Lux), from Vembu, had to fill up for the latency. Both these session's were to be midway sessions to Jinesh's overview on AWS, that would have given mileage to these session for which AWS is the basis. Nevertheless, considering the audience were not real novices to A... (more)

Werner Vogels, Bradley Horowitz, and Jonathan Zittrain

I’m at Supernova. (live stream) I’ve come in a little late on an afternoon session. Werner Vogels talks about cloud computing. He contrasts it with a 1900 Belgian beer brewery that had to have its own electricity generator, which took a lot of maintenance and didn’t help it make better beer. He warns that any offering that taps into the large social networks may find itself with traffic suddenly spiking by orders of magnitude. NOTE: Live-blogging. Getting things wrong. Missing points. Omitting key information. Introducing artificial choppiness. Over-emphasizing small matters. Paraphrasing badly. Not running a spellpchecker. Mangling other people’s ideas and words. You are warned, people.   Cloud computing’s advantages: 1. Lower costs by eliminating capital investment and reducing operational costs. 2. Increase agility. 3. Removes the “heavy lifting” and letting y... (more)

Open Cloud Computing & Co-operative Community Clouds

Cloud Expo on Ulitzer Now that I'm back and have had chance to recuperate from from my trip to Israel I thought I'd share a few of the more interesting ideas to come out of the conversations I've had. In particular were several comments that Alistair Croll made at CloudCamp Tel Aviv about the potential opportunities for what he described as "Free / Open Cloud Services" as well as an idea I had around the potential of so called "Cooperative Community Clouds". First in regards to Open Cloud Services, basically the concept goes like this; as we move away from the traditional client/server based models of the past to more web centric / service oriented opportunities of the future, we will see open source shift from application centric (source code) toward free open services and information. Cloud providers will essentially give away access in return for greater adopt of ... (more)
