I can personally say I’m quite familiar with the work Etymotic Research has done with their line of ER20 high-fidelity Earplugs and consider these low profile plugs to be a nightlife staple. To my fellow audiophiles who frequent your fair share of festivals, shows, clubs, and concerts, I’m sure you can share in my spectrum of feelings towards the products that companies like Etymotic Research offer…
Next stop for the AT&T hackathon series is Atlanta! People don’t sleep on this thriving city. Atlanta is home to many top technology companies including Dell, AT&T Mobility, and CNN. It ranks third for cities in the country with the most Fortune 500 headquarters. So it is a no-brainer that AT&T would slide through to spread love to the developer community here.
Going to concerts are fun and memorable times for everyone. Reliving those times are hard however, knowing either you or a few people posted their videos on YouTube or any other online video service and searching can be a chore. CrowdSync is going to change and revolutionize the way we can bring all those concert memories back.
OMG. It is times like these that I wish I was a developer. This weekend March 23-24, Friskies Cat Food is hosting a “Games for Cats Hackathon” with a $15,000 dollar cash prize going to the developer who comes up with the winning app or cat game. Yes, using colors, swipes, animation and a scratch-resistant iPad, there is no telling how many hours of fun can be created for cats.
It is going to be an informative night at the next Social Media Club L.A. (SMCLA) event at CrossCampus, with some major heavy hitters in the B2B industry dropping social strategy secrets. One that you will not want to miss if your business is selling to other businesses, and you are not sure how to utilize the power of social networks to promote your brand.
There is a plethora of tech innovation going on in Los Angeles right now, and not only in Silicon Beach — but all over from downtown to the valleys to everywhere in between. New entrepreneurs are setting up shop and the city is encouraging tech development with exciting initiatives. Keeping track of all the new companies, funding, networking and events going on across town is challenging.
For a long time now, startup founders who couldn’t raise round of funding had to boot strap it all the way or simply give up on their ventures for lack of a better exit option. A new platform dubbed Exitround, has launched which claims is “a private, anonymous marketplace for founders to discreetly explore strategic acquisition opportunities.”
I could feel the hackers excitement as I stepped into the AT&T and American Airline’s room at the Hilton in downtown Austin at SXSW 2013. This isn’t AT&T Developers Program’s first rodeo at SXSW. All I know is things are super dialed in at these hacks. AT&T, American Airlines and the other sponsors (like dot CO, Hertz, and Voice Park), spare no expense to make sure these hackers are treated like royalty. Not only did they get all types of swag and great food, these hackers got to be some of the first to build on APIs from AT&T and American Airlines.
I get tired trudging through endless websites to figure out where to watch a movie or show online. There are tons of places to buy, rent, or stream movies and shows, but each website has a certain set of shows and movies on their list. Wouldn’t it be nice to find all that information in one place? That’s where Fanhattan chimes in.
