The Power of Intelligence
Huffington Post - 2 months
As you read this, data volumes across the world are exploding at an unprecedented rate. Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp alone process 60 billion messages a day. Instagram has over 500 million active users per month who share more than 95 million photos and videos every day. And that's just social media. McKinsey predicts that by 2020, as many as 30 billion smart devices will be connected. Can you imagine the amount of data that that will produce? What's truly exciting is that we now have the technology to dig deep into these massive treasure troves of data, and draw out meaningful connections and insights that will allow us to make better, faster decisions. We're finally beginning to make the shift from collecting data to connecting data. Emerging technologies such as natural language processing, machine learning, and artificial intelligence have catapulted us into a new era of human intelligence supplemented and enhanced by data science. In this exciting new world, the individu ...

Does Crossing the Chasm Apply to the Industrial IoT World?
Huffington Post - 5 months
According to "Crossing the Chasm," for a new technology to become "mainstream," it needs to cross the chasm, moving from the early adopters or visionaries to the early majority, or pragmatists. Yet some people wonder if this famous technology adoption/diffusion model applies to the Industrial IoT space as well, in particular, to smart energy/infrastructure. It seems to be that in the short-term - that the "chasm-crossing" theory by Geoffrey Moore does not fit our smart energy industry too well. In the energy industry, there is currently still a massive challenge in the way of applying Moore's model - regulation. If we take a more long-term view, however, and look to the telecommunications industry, I believe that we will begin to see an energy utility industry that is increasingly becoming more consumer-driven. Just as smart phones, the Internet, and IoT communications revolutionized the telecommunications industry business models and consumer spending behaviors, I expect a similar r ...

Author Geoffrey Moore on the importance of Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, left, remaining involved at the company as he considers giving up the chairman role. While Gates may step down as part of a reshuffle that will see Microsoft veteran Satya Nadella appointed CEO, he would remain a director and focus on new products. The net loss may widen to about $254 million, including costs for stock options and other one-time items.

Today Is The 1-Year Anniversary Of ECRI's Recession Call — And It's Still Wrong
Business Insider - over 4 years
One year ago today Lakshman Achuthan of ECRI appeared on WSJ television and announced that the US was "tipping into recession." At the 30 second mark, one of the hosts asks, "When?" and Achuthan responds "Now." At the 50 second mark, he gets more specific: "It might have started last month. It might start next month. But sometime I think it's going to wind up in the 3rd or 4th quarter." Unless someone thinks a recession started 11 to 13 months ago, Achuthan's boast at about the 20 second mark that "On recessions we have never made a false alarm" is completely busted. Subsequently in December ECRI revised its call to "by mid-year" 2012. While it is certainly possible that the data for a number of series could get revised down significantly for the second quarter, as of now that call remains wrong as well. With real personal income declining in August (as reported this morning), industrial production down sharply, and real retail sales not making a new high, it is certainly ...

There Was Nothing 'Magical' About Jobs And Woz (AAPL, MSFT)
Business Insider - over 4 years
Valley legend Vinod Khosla knows most of the tech industry's founding fathers first hand. Either he worked with them, competed against them, or later, as a venture capitalist, funded them. He's also a straight speaker. On Thursday, he received an award from the Churchill Club, a prestigious Silicon Valley institution. Khosla was a cofounder of Sun Microsystems, and was a big-time venture capitalist for Kleiner Perkins before launching his own firm, Khosla Ventures. Best-selling author Geoffrey Moore asked Khosla how to build magical cofounder relationships like Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak or Steve Ballmer and Bill Gates. Khosla balked at the Valley myth that Jobs and Wozniak were some kind of "perfect duet," as Moore put it. "With all due respect that's a load of crap," Khosla said. "There was no commonality between Steve and Woz." Jobs "carried the vision." Wozniak, or Woz, as he's known, is a technologist, Khosla explained. Similarly, Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer wasn't ...

THE VERDICT: There Are Big Problems, But There's No Slowdown Yet
Business Insider - almost 5 years
Over the last few weeks I have written a number of articles re-examining and updating my forecast from the beginning of this year, of slow growth in the first half (possibly even one negative quarter) but no recession, followed by stronger growth in the second half. That examination revealed that there are very real and serious problems with consumer wages, income, and savings. Similarly there are problems with corporate profit growth. On the other hand, there are a slew of data series which almost always turn negative months before a recession begins -- and so far they are all positive. The backdrop, from a year ago, is that housing, bonds, and Real M2 all turned negative towards the end of 2010 and bottomed in the first 1/3 of 2011. They have since all risen. Since they are long leading indicators, however, the maximum negative correlation with the economy is right about now: 12-16 months later. Similarly, Prof. Hamilton has described that increases in gasoline prices feed th ...

A Complete Roundup Of A Very Bizarre Week Of Economic Data
Business Insider - almost 5 years
This past week's monthly data releases were dominated by yesterday's nonfarm payrolls report, which read like a bad April fool's joke delayed by 5 days. The commentary a month ago was how there were no weak spots in the report and the economy was hitting on all cylinders. Four weeks later and it reads like the engine has seized. Auto sales were great, but slightly below February. Factory orders, ISM manufacturing, and ISM services all improved. Residential construction spending held up, but nonresidential spending declined. The high frequency weekly indicators do not give any hint of oncoming weakness. Let's start with the employment related data, to compare with the monthly report: The Department of Labor reported Initial jobless claims of 357,000 last week, a new post-recession low in the revised series. The four week average declined by 3250 to 361,750, also the lowest revised number in 4 years. There will be one more week where the new seasonal revisions will increase the numb ...

Be Two Steps Ahead in Innovation
Inc. Magazine - over 5 years
I am always looking for new ways to be innovative. I love that through Inc, I get the chance to speak with so many experts on innovation, such as Clayton Christensen, Sunni Brown, Adrian Slywotzky and Geoffrey Moore. These experts shake up my initial notions on innovation and inspire me to try new techniques with my company. So when I came across Mark Proffitt’s predictive innovation workshop, I was very intrigued. Imagine being able to predict what consumers will want before it is available on the market. Imagine not playing catch-up with your product, but being the frontrunner of an amazing solution. To learn more, I spoke with Proffitt himself. I was so impressed that I took Proffitt’s workshop on predictive innovation -- here’s a summary of what I learned. Perfect Solution for Every Problem A main lesson that I learned is that there is a perfect solution for every problem that exists. Take transportation, for example. Right now, most of us drive cars.

Becoming More Skype Savvy via Recording Apps
Inc. Magazine - over 5 years
I conduct many interviews via phone, such as with Clayton Christensen, Sunni Brown, MailChimp’s CEO Ben Chestnut, Adrian Slywotzky and Geoffrey Moore. I love phone interviews because I can learn a plethora of information from really interesting people in a fairly short period of time. However I’m not happy with the technology I’ve been using to conduct these interviews. I use the speaker function on my office landline and have a voice recorder next to the speaker phone. Sometimes the recording turns out fine. Other times, the person with whom I’m speaking is on a cell phone or has bad reception and the audio comes out fuzzy, making it difficult to transcribe. It’s also an incredibly lengthy process to transcribe the interviews. I’m a huge fan of Skype but I dislike that Skype lacks a built-in recording capability. In order to record Skype conversations, you must use an outside recording application and here are the best ones I’ve found so far: Pamela Pamela is a Skype-certifie ...
