FRIENDSY: THE NEW DATING APP

The new social networking app Friendsy, is a mash-up between Facebook and Tinder by letting users choose whether the want to befriend, date, or hook-up with other people who use it.

Things aren’t quite left up to chance with Friendsy, as they have included a Hint option which allows you to leave an anonymous message in order to increase your chances of being matched with someone. The app also has a function called ChitChat, which matches you with a random student who is also currently online and allows you to have a live chat with him or her.

The idea is the brain-child of two students, Michael Pinsky and Vaidhy Murti, and it goes back to the very roots of what made Facebook big, which is basically making it exclusive to American college students (users must have a .edu email address to sign up for the service).

However, judging by the success of the app to date, the app may very well be rolled out nationwide sooner rather than later. Already, it has attracted 45,000 users from 1,600 different colleges across America, and has raised over $200,000 from various sources.

Does Blackberry’s open letter have a return address?

Tomorrow, Blackberry will release a letter to media outletss worldwide. When I got news of this tonight, I stumbled mentally for a moment. I thought it reminiscent of the "There is life after Apple" Chiat/Day letter from Steve Jobs in the Wall Street Journal 25 years ago. For a minute I allowed techno-romance to gnaw at me, but only for a minute. Tomorrow's open missal from Blackberry reminds me more of a fake letter that appeared in Chinese newspaper, The Southern Metropolis Daily a couple of months ago, and then found it's way around China via the micro-blogging Weibo.

NASA Game Changing 3D Printing success really matters

Last night I tweeted a link to the Press Release from NASA regarding their success with  testing a rocket engine injector made through additive manufacturing, or as we say these days,  3D printing. What surprised me was the reaction I got via re-Tweets, messages and people just saying 'wow!'. I think what caught people's attention was the potential highlighted by the success in NASA's test, the potential for manufacturing and for business.

Social Media: quality always tops quantity

In recent years I have had the privilege to speak at a number of different events on Social Media. Typically the area of greatest interest has always been Facebook. The same question always pops up during the Q&A part - “I don’t have a budget for Facebook, how do I get to 100,000 fans?” To be fair, there is not one answer to this question for every industry but I will try to give you an answer that should set you on the right path.
