WE’RE BLOWN AWAY: This Startup Could Literally Change The Entire Software Industry

Julie Bort | Mar. 5, 2012, 12:00 PM | 227,602 All Those E-mails From Pinterest Are Very Good For This Guy This Stealth Startup Aims To Solve One Of The Biggest Problems With Online Gaming6 Cool Technologies That Will Change Your Life

Startup Numecent has come out of stealth mode today with some of the most impressive enterprise technology we’ve seen in a decade.

Plus the company is interesting for other reasons, like its business model and its founder.

Numecent offers something it calls “cloud paging” and, if successful, it could be a game-changer for enterprise software, video gaming, and smartphone apps. Red Hat thinks so. It has already partnered with the company to help it offer Windows software to Linux users.

“Cloud paging” instantly “cloudifies” any software, even an operating system like Windows itself, says founder and CEO Osman Kent. It lets any software, with no modification, be delivered from the cloud and run as fast or faster than if the app was on your desktop.

Lots of so-called “desktop virtualization” services work fast. But cloud-paging can even operate the cloud software if the PC gets disconnected from the network or Internet.

It can also turn a smartphone into a server. That means a bunch of devices like tablets can run the software — like a game — off of the smartphone.

Imagine showing up to a party and letting all your friends play the latest

Entrepreneur Life 101

How many strikes of genius have you had while you were distracted with your friends company and association? Realistically I answered the own question within another question but the point is none the less important.

If you are good at one thing or enjoy another the only time you can release your innovations is by allowing yourself time to think about that niche. A prime example of innovation in solitude is any and all writers. If you are a writer you know full well what I mean about needing to be alone to think and meditate on your thoughts. The only way humanity can teach each other new things is by communication. Whether that be in the form of a book, blog, article or personal conversation. We all took at least 10-15 years of schooling and how did we learn? Books, studying, performance and teacher instruction. We also learned a…

The Intrapreneur

Most employees feel that they have to think and act ‘big’, no matter whether the company that they’re working for is big, mid-sized or even in effect relatively small. In reality, size doesn’t matter, thinking small always works! Just because you’re not in a start-up doesn’t mean you can’t and shouldn’t act like one: be light, nimble, and agile – in business today it’s survival of the fastest, not necessarily the fittest.

Small businesses and start-ups maintain an energy and sense of urgency – they act hungry. They play the long-game but realize that every single day counts. Chunking goals into daily targets empowers you to ask: what can we do better or differently today than we did yesterday? It ensures that you focus in on the levers at a micro level that will ultimately drive you towards your goals at a macro level. A daily focus let’s you see what’s…

Great advice, it’s easy to be harder on yourself than you would be on others.

I’ve found writting lists of weekly goals and ticking as completed. Adding on the extra things you’ve incorporated that other blogs and the like have inspired you to try.

I realise on review I have accomplished more than I thought which is always encouraging.

Linda C Ridenour

Once you’ve determined what your strengths are it’s important to be patient with yourself.  Show yourself the same respect you would provide others who are striving to make improvements.


Be kind to yourself.  The entrepreneurial journey is a marathon, not a sprint.  Consistent effort on an ongoing basis will help you achieve your goals.  Let your conversations with yourself be filled with humor, encouragement and acceptance.


Put yourself in the company of others who are proven leaders and who will inspire you.  Rely on their words of encouragement to bolster your confidence and make the journey more enjoyable.  Learn from them as they excel.  Choose to emulate the habits and attitudes of success they display.


Hold yourself accountable.  Schedule at least two hours a day for income producing activities.  Allow yourself uninterrupted time for these activities in order to be more creative and productive.


Have fun!…

CIM Report Shows Many Marketers are Ill-equipped for the Social Web

A Marketer in a Digital World

CIM SMB Report - how are marketers using social media?

The UK’s Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) recently teamed up with Ipsos ASI and Bloomberg to carry out new research to assess how businesses are adapting to our social media fuelled world.

The results appear largely consistent with previous studies, although do provide a valuable benchmark for comparison with other data sources. And while many of the findings were focussed on adoption and usage patterns across four big social networks (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube), the most interesting statistics came from marketers’ self-assessment of the value their businesses derive from social media efforts:

  • Only 27% of marketers use social media as a “core part of a campaign”, yet 28% claim to still be “just experimenting.”
  • Across all of the major channels, more people claim their social media activities are ‘not at all effective’ than ‘extremely effective,’ with YouTube being seen as the channel where being effective is most problematic.
  • Most…

18th20109 crowdfunding websites to help you change the world.

posted in: Business by: Paul Anthony

For many people, the thought of taking significant financial risk holds them back from jumping head-long into launching the idea that has been stuck in the recesses of their head.

KickStarter has received quite a bit of publicity recently for its efforts. Most notably the open source facebook alternative Diaspora managed to raise $10,000 in just 39 days, proving that the concept had legs, and that crowdfunding as a concept has the community well and truly behind it. It’s not just software projects that the site caters for, out of all the current activity on the site, software is probably the most dull – as creatives around the world have embraced it as a way to realise spectacular dreams. With everything from life sized mousetrap games to one man’s cultural journey across Mexico KickStarter has clearly captured the imagination of its audience.

As far as the rules for funding goes, KickStarter keeps things simple. In order to receive the funding needed, a project must reach or exceed its funding goal or no money changes hands. If you do manage to reach your goal, 5% is taken from the

From PinClout to PinReach: The Startup for Pinterest Analytics

PinReach or the startup formerly known as PinClout specializes in analyzing the up-and-coming rise of Pinterest. While the whole name “cease-and-desist” issue with Klout over the use of PinClout has been the major talk of the industry for now, PinReach LLC is still a very much viable startup that aims to become the analytics startup to go to for Pinterest. The original name boiled down what they did in more simple terms which is basically to see your clout in Pinterest but PinReach LLC is still a good name as it offers a simplified look at your overall Pinterest social media reach.

    Founded by Chris Fay and Daniel Schimpfoessl, PinReach intends to become the Google Analytics for Pinterest. Pinterest’s marketing potential is one of the highest compared to some of the other new social media platforms and so far such tools for Pinterest analytics are almost non-existant. Originally, PinClout garnered more than 6000 users within two weeks of opening but with PinReach they are set to forge new ground even faster with a more robust infrastructure. According to their main site, “PinReach is your source for Pinterest analytics. We are working to empower people and brands with the tools necessary to monitor trends, understand activity, and gauge impact, easily. That, and you get a Reach score updated daily!”PinReach covers the overall statistics of Pinterest, identi

 fying your main influencers, how you influence others, trends and social impact with a simple to understand single Reach score for each section. It checks referral links like Google Analytics but also monitors your daily stats, providing analysis on the impact of your pins, repins and the pins of your fans and followers that point back to your main site. It also offers the ability to check on your competition with built-in functions such as Compete. All you need to do is enter your competitors Pinterest username and you can get a look at their PinReach score. The statistics are presented using simple graphs and numbers in bold font for the relevant scores with the average PinReach score being 29.
