Dave rockin the Product Hunt kitty. Meet http://www.producthunt.com/  

The Winequake edition of the Gillmor Gang discussed VC investors like Data Mcclure switching to backing by product traction. Product Hunt rather than the appstore gives tiny hint of traction. Robert Scoble / Keith Teare get going back and forth at about 0:43:06.

How can Microsoft compete without Scroogled 2.0?
Get innovating Windows for next gen Win.js apps to run singularly on a phone or converge as a collection on Windows making up a complete business application using local message passing.
Build the install process flawless / duplicatable / shareable between friends / freelancers / businesses dispensing with traditional IT heavy Microsoft support.
Make a new market place for complex solutions, steal a page from Salesforce.com / Android / iPhone, reinvent app economics for complex applications. .
Lastly, CEO Satya Nadella: Fire sour marketing. Hire smart Engineering.

Review: The Customer-Funded Business by John Mullins

It is something of an indictment on the quality of debate about entrepreneurship that the notion of getting customers to “fund your business” – in order to pay salaries, rent and suppliers – is a sufficiently radical idea that a business school professor feels compelled to write a book about it.

OpenTSDB should allow anticipatory systems to emerge from sensor data in business, here’s how, apply control theory math:


The Fourier transform, named after Joseph Fourier, is a mathematical transformation employed to transform signals between time domain and frequency domain, which has many applications in physics and engineering. Wikipedia



These transforms used to be hard work done in Fortran code for weather and forecasting type applications, now available in Wolfram and open source. http://mathworld.wolfram.com/FourierTransform.html
