Lisacast Gets Nerdy With It (Jennifer Ruggiero)
Jennifer Ruggiero, host of Get Nerdy With It took some time to talk with me recently. We chatted about our obsessions with our smart phones, startups Musicians Guild and NamePlace, two new companies coming out of Silicon Valley. Musicians Guild is a lifetime music learning service with very handy tools for creating and collaborating on music. They have a great team and Alan Parson's on their advisory board. NamePlace is an online marketplace for naiming rights and sponsorships that I'm personally involved in. Neither company has launched publicly.
Lisacast with guest Don Pierce of Micoy
Micoy's immersive video technology can be produced in up to a full spherical 360 degree field of view. Unlike other 3D formats, our format has true stereo separation at a pixel level throughout the entire image. this allows multiple viewers to be facing any direction individually and still be fully immersed into a true 3D experience.
Due to the nature of Micoy's format the stereo separation is integrated into the image. This allows the freedom of using any current 3D display technology available in the market, eliminating the need and cost of proprietary hardware.
Lisacast with guest Jeff Robbins of Lullabot
Jeff Robbins is co-founder and CEO of Lullabot. He worked at O'Reilly & Associates as an illustrator and systems administrator as the world wide web came into being. He was involved in the early stages of the first commercial website, O'Reilly's Global Network Navigator, but left to start one of the first web design companies, Liquid Media, in 1993.
In 1994, Jeff's band Orbit signed to A&M Records. Over the next 6 years, the band recorded 3 albums for A&M, scored a modern rock top 10 hit, appeared on MTV and MuchMusic, and toured extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada playing many radio festivals and the Lollapalooza tour.
Jeff has developed web sites for Ringo Starr, Participant Productions, Adaptive Path, the Fearless Living Institute, and many others. He also runs a soundtrack music company called SomeMusic.
Jeff hosts Lullabot's weekly Drupal podcast, manages Lullabot's consulting, education events, and media products. Additionally, Jeff has contributed over 20 Drupal modules and themes.
Jeff believes that free open source software doesn't need to be ugly and difficult to use. Along with Matt Westgate, he began Lullabot as a way to improve these tools and make them more accessible to companies and individuals who are looking for a non-proprietary solution with social relevance. Open source development makes the world a better place.
Lisacast with guest Lee Dryburgh, eComm
The Emerging Communications (eComm) conference was founded in 2007 by Lee S Dryburgh, a telecommunications engineer and a communications visionary. eComm emerged from several alignments of opportunity and inspiration. In late 2007, Dryburgh—severly frustrated by the stale and often out of date content he found in existing telecom industry conferences and gatherings—decided to gather an ahead-of-the-curve forum of friends to break the impasse and create an event for the new post-telecom era. Calling upon the success of an earlier conference developed by Surj Patel that also reached out to telecom innovators (but narrowed towards telephony), Dryburgh saw an opportunity to spark a visible, lasting, and open conversation to track and promote the post-telecom era which the market stepped into late 2007. 2009 promises to be a gathering of thought leaders who wish to share and develop their ahead-of-the curve ideas, vision and products. With players at all levels already vivying for speaking slots, Dryburgh anticipates a content-packed 3-day event that is truly at the forefront of innovation and defining the new telecom era.
