Europreneur Secrets- Favorite Web Aps from Ann Cotton, Camfed

by on November 16, 2009 at 7:36 pm

Favorite Web Aps of European Entrepreneurs I met during the Traveling Geeks Trip.

This is seventh in a series where I take JD Lasica’s meme “Coolest Power Tools” on a “spin” to see not what our US geeks are using, but what our European Brethren find as their favorite aps. This has been a really popular series with my blog readers. It’s fun to learn about new aps and see that some of our favorites are highly used in the UK and now in Africa too.

Check out Coolest power tools of some top geeks: (more…)

So What Did We Accomplish?

by on August 10, 2009 at 10:55 pm

Jeff observing Kensington resident grandson Harry This morning I spoke with Roland Harwood, our counterpart at NESTA, who did so much to make The Geeks trip to London as productive and beneficial as we all could conceive. We agreed it was an extraordinary experiment with a leap of faith that our formal and informal encounters would have both short and long term beneficial impact on the region as well as for everyone involved.

Our visit, sponsored by NESTA, EEI and other donors, was a pilot experiment to see what would happen if we could turn bloggers, authors, and videocasters loose to communicate about innovation in London/Cambridge. Using the connectivity and immediacy of the Web in service of extending “knowing” rather than just knowledge about London/Cambridge, we took the leap. (more…)

LogoRightBeta I recently learned about this cool Israel-based company Mind360, which develops mind games and it’s not just for older folks with aging brains.

As you get older that it’s harder to find where you left your car keys, your brush, even your cup of coffee while you’re running around the house trying to get out in the morning?
