As he finished a game of Cut The Rope on his iPhone, my young godson asked what my phone was like when I was his age. I broke it down for him. I was in my twenties before someone offered to take north of ten thousand dollars for a basic digital camera, and not much less for a GPS device. And I got my first basic mobile phone (I explained that means just making phone calls and sending text messages) as I approached thirty.
Stowe wrote an excellent post that brings back recent memories re: the Web 2.0 trademark fiasco and the ensuing PR fallout for O’Reilly and CMP . .
Recently launched TechCrush , which was inspired by Stowe in a previous post, TechMunch Begets TechCrush , has temporarily ceased posting due to a potential trademark conflict with TechCrunch. Although, I personally preferred TechMunch over TechCrush…
Last Friday, I had the opportunity to hang with Stowe Boyd to discuss Web2.0 and his ideas around Advisory Capital.
After coffee at the nearby Starbucks, we cruised over to Notre Dame, where he presented these concepts to the SVASE organization.
Advisory Capital, per the man himself, is basically the idea of investing intellectual property as a means to help companies expedite their idea from concept to BETA without the typical Angel or seed funding associated with development.
