SemaWorx Prototype Ready – Official Press Release (in German)

 
We made it !
 
N770 & SemaBeacon — showing the prototypeYes, I know it’s sheerly unbelievable, but we finally got a working prototype of SemaWorx Soft- & Hardware. I’m really amazed by this, since it has been a *very* long going process since the first concepts almost two years ago.
   On the photograph you can see me holding our Bluetooth Beacon in the left hand (we built it into a paving stone, milled from a piece of Styrodur, to demonstrate the versatility ;-) ) and showing the “beamed” user-interface on my N770 above.
   This also showcases the realtime handling of various semantic XML data sources.
 
Please see the details for press releases and photographs.

Guy Kawasaki “Pitching” MP3 Audio Download

Now he’s become a podcaster, either ! Guy Kawasaki now has an MP3 audio post – read by himself (!) – of his new book’s ( The Art of the Start ) third chapter on his blog for free download. There is also a podcast-feed.
 
The Art of the Pitch is an introductory guide to the process of reaching agreement — when seeking an investment, closing a sale, forming a partnership, or recruiting an employee.
   This contains many points from How to Be a Demo God, but now put into perspective concerning the pitch’s goals. Plus, near the recording’s end, there is a valuable "Bonus Track" on using certain presentation software…
 
NOTE: I mirrored the track for easier download and also set up an "off-site" sub-category within the podcasts, so you can easily tell other people’s work from our own.
 

By the way: This most beautiful flash MP3 audio player is one of the great things you get from ODEO.

Hi all,
a stamp labelled "WordPress"I moved SemaWorker to WordPress last night, since MovableType obviously was not able to handle the current category-structure anymore.
   So please excuse, if not all things are back in the right place by now.
   I’ll fix this over the weekend, I hope…
 

Until then, I’m afraid, your patience is required. :-(
