Why The App Won The Software War 19.8.2013 ReadWriteWeb
The word "app" has become ingrained into the global lexicon of software development. As time has passed and technology has evolved, people have viewed software from progressively different perspectives. Microsoft Office is a piece of software—yet so is a video game. And so is PayPal, for that matter. As Marc Andreessen, cofounder of venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz, eloquently puts it, “Software is eating the world.” But as software rises, we use the term less and less. Andreesssen's statement, meant to describe how software companies are disrupting entire industries and challenging the norm, is best manifested in the proliferation of apps. In 2013, we’ve been inundated with the concept of apps—on smartphones, tablets and laptops, of course, but also more unusual domains like cars and refrigerators. The term's newfound ubiquity raises an interesting point about how we perceive the software that now surrounds us. What exactly is an "app"? When did a package of code meant to execute a ...

Vancouver's GROW Conference Shines A Spotlight On Canada's Growing Startup Scene 19.8.2013 TechCrunch
grow-logoWhen it comes to the tech conference circuit outside of Silicon Valley, Canada is probably not top of mind for most people, but I've got a feeling that's slowly changing. Last week, Vancouver hosted the fourth edition of the GROW conference, a two-day event (plus one for outdoor activities around the city) that brings together startups from all over Canada and the West Coast. Four years ago, the inaugural event attracted 400 people. This year, over 1,200 made the trip to Vancouver's Convention Center, which will also play host to TED next year.

3D Gesture Control Is An Area Of Focus On Innovation We Likely Don't Need Or Want 18.8.2013 techCrunch
leap-motionMinority Report was an enjoyable action flick, but it may hold the blame for getting the idea stuck in our collective heads that 3D gesture control is the next frontier for computing. The Kinect from Microsoft helped further this idea around as well, with a pretty good (though highly limited regarding needed space, applications, etc.) gesture experience. But a lot of startups and other companies are chasing this carrot – and it begs the question of whether there's even a carrot to chase.

3 Steps to Protecting Intellectual Property 17.8.2013 Inc
How do you keep your IP safe from view ... and under what circumstances should you show it to others? Many start-up owners are concerned with the intellectual property (IP) of their company, and they should be. IP is a valuable asset that needs to be protected, insured, and, sometimes, even risked. Seasoned entrepreneurs understand the need to take risks with their IP, typically by sharing early-stage product ideas, concepts, or business models with potential investors. In an ideal world, you’d protect your IP with a trademark, copyright, or patent. But small businesses in the early stage don't always have that luxury. Plenty of places will explain how to file for a patent or a trademark registration, and it's true that a federal registration can help enforce your company’s rights. But there are other things you can do to protect your IP. Here are a few. Employ Internal Controls Controlling who has access to IP and other sensitive information is key. And for confidential ...
How to Leverage Your True Talent 17.8.2013 Inc
A conversation with serial entrepreneur and author David Kidder about identifying your true talent--and making the most of it. Most entrepreneurs are in search of that elusive goal called success. David Kidder knows a thing or two about it: He's founded three companies, including Bionic, a social innovation platform. He is also the author of The Startup Playbook, for which he conducted interviews with Elon Musk, Reid Hoffman, and other accomplished entrepreneurs. How does Kidder define success? And how can other entrepreneurs achieve it? I recently spoke with the entrepreneur and author about using your innate talent to achieve success. What’s your definition of success? When you are working with and from your innate gift. It’s when you have discovered your innate gift or proprietary contribution to the world and you are spending all your time in that strength and almost none of your time in your area of weakness. At some point, you have to quit fixing yourself and really just ...
