I chat with Guy Kawasaki about the lessons he learned from working with Steve Jobs, startup advice and Privy the New 'Anti-Social' app from Cheeze.
Guy Kawasaki possesses an extensive knowledge of innovation, entrepreneurship, social media, and marketing. First and foremost, he is an evangelist. The term comes from a Greek word that means "bringing the good news."
That's what he does--whether it was the good news of Macintosh or currently the good news of Canva, an online graphics-design firm. He aligns with companies and causes that empower people, foster democracy, and make the world a meritocracy. In addition to his work at Canva, he is a writer (thirteen books), speaker, Mercedes brand ambassador, and an executive fellow at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley.
Guy is also currently the director and an evangelist for Cheeze. The company is focused on delivering a solution for a lot of people who have become fed up with Facebook and looking for a more private social setting to connect with family and friends. The company has a simple but cool new app, to be called Privy, that lets you create groups and share private photos, videos and everyday moments with family and friends with no ads. It’s currently " in beta " on iOS and it'll be rolling it out sometime during Apple’s WWDC and late June for Android devices.
At this years WWDC keynote, Apple revealed a feature that lets consumers set time limits on social media apps; the demo's target was Instagram, owned by rival Facebook. There seemed to be an increasing realization in the industry that too much social media is not healthy for our wellbeing. I wanted to find out more about the new app called Privy that debuted at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference, how Guy Kawasaki got involved with Privy and the conference's theme this year.
Every once in a while comes a new disruptive technology that changes everything. VR has stalled, the headsets are not bringing VR to the masses as promised. Step forward Omegavision which is VR without the headset, and so much more. (Check out the video demo here (vimeo.com/242523162) Omegavision is essentially a VR system that allows you to work within the environment sitting at your desktop or standing. A system that will deliver immersive photography, CGI, and an immersive windows environment all on the same platform. Omegavision consists of 3 currently issued patents and 3 patents that are in the USPTO system soon to be issued.Vention, a company based in Portland Oregon, is selling the intellectual property to Omegavision. The intellectual property consists of:
An immersive lens design, the Omegavision lens that captures a field of view of 360 degrees horizontally by 240 degrees vertically. (Patents issued) An immersive screen, the Omegavision screen that immerses the viewer in a field of view of 360 degrees horizontally by 240 degrees vertically, where the viewer is actually within the display screen. (Patent Issued) Algorithms that plot 3 dimensional (X, Y, Z) Cartesian coordinates to the Omegavision screen. I invited CEO Frank Harris onto the show to learn more about how the folks at Vention believe that they possess the patent rights to the future of VR

Consumers seem to begin their holiday shopping earlier each year. This year, it's likely that shoppers will start buying even earlier as supply chain shortages impact everything from popular toys to footwear and even coffee. So, how should retailers prepare for this shopping season? For e-commerce retailers, website crashes or slow sites are all too common during holiday shopping, leading to frustrations for customers and potentially costing companies millions during downtimes on top of ongoing shortages. As a result, IT teams can become overwhelmed trying to ensure there are no disruptions for shoppers, but there is only so much they can do.
However, automating certain processes throughout the e-commerce workflow can help mitigate these issues and ensure customers don't feel any impact. And while automation is effective, many teams don't know what to automate to be most successful. Ritu Dubey from Digitate discusses how retailers should automate workflows to relieve IT teams so that they can rest easy this holiday season, knowing that their customers are having a good experience.
Martin Rand has been an entrepreneur for many years. He was a product manager at Skype, created VitalFields (which he later sold to Monsanto) and now, is the founder and CEO of Pactum. Pactum is an AI-based system that helps global companies to autonomously offer personalized, commercial negotiations on a massive scale. The system adds value and saves time for both the Pactum client and their negotiation partner by aligning their values to determine win-win agreements via an easy-to-use chat interface that implements best-practice negotiation strategies.
The web-based tool's applications range from supplier negotiations for online marketplaces to enterprise and retail procurement negotiations. Pactum is currently working with Walmart to renegotiate contracts and has been signed on as a partner with DocuSign. The company is based in Mountain View with engineering and operations in Estonia. It's backed by founders of Skype and TransferWise and built by luminaries from Skype, Starship Technologies, and the Government of Estonia's e-Residency program. But all are agreed on Pactum's vision of artificial intelligence, improving business relationships while safeguarding humanity with ethical AI.
Pactum is particularly useful in the current situation, as companies are losing money and needing to renegotiate contracts. Pactum saves money for retailers while also getting the best deals for vendors- all without human interaction on the company's side.
Technology and language are eerily similar, and if you learned how to code then you've also learned a language. When Megan Miller was living in Madrid, her host mom would always tell her to aprovechar la experiencia: to take advantage of her time there. Now, she wants to help people take advantage of the tech tools available to learn and incorporate Spanish into their daily lives, without needing to invest thousands on expensive immersion trips abroad.
Megan shares her story and tech background and how it led her back to her "roots" of Spanish. I learn more about how it has allowed a series of shifts in perspective; whether it's a right-brain, left-brain thing, or just plain worldly experience. One of the most inspiring aspects of this conversation is how she didn't fit into the typical IT stereotype and didn't fit in with the huge educational conglomerates: so she created her own bubble.
Megan now offers professional and certified IT and business translation services from Spanish to American English. Using her CSM and PMP certifications, she manages the scope, timeline, and translation using agile methodologies to make sure the words, tone, and intent translate to a professional technology-based audience
