On August 25, 2009 in Palo Alto at Tibco Software SDForum’s Cloud Services SIG hosted “Storage in the Cloud”. Four different approaches were represented by Brian Olson of EMC Atmos, Cameron Bahar of Parascale Cloud Storage Software, Adrian Otto of Rackspace Cloud Files and Chander Kant of Zmanda Open Source Backup. Text from DJCline.com

Moving data to the cloud can be the first step to moving whole IT operations. It can be a load off your mind and your budget. Some companies just store files, others offer applications. They offer different levels of security. All of them offer scalability unheard of in traditional IT environments. Sanford Rockowitz described it as a generational thing, that this is the way things will be done. The day of keeping all the data in house is over. Text from DJCline.com

On August 24, 2009 in Palo Alto at Pillsbury Winthrop, SDForum’s Augmented SIG hosted Nokia’s research and developers to talk about augmentation technology. Ramakrishna Vendantham demonstrated how a Nokia N95 can recognize a music CD cover. Kari Pulli and Radek Grzeszczuk talked about software that will not only recognize products with bar codes and labels but buildings and faces. They showed how an experimental visor can track eye movement and then zoom in on whatever you focus on. Combined with GPS and publicly available information it helps people navigate around cities. This would great for the visually impaired or people who get lost easily. Text from DJ Cline.com

All of this depends on a cell phone’s camera finding enough data points to compare with an existing database of images. The problem is that the database is usually not in the phone but must be accessed over a network. They combine several recognition strategies and database trees to create a “forest” that finds results fast over an existing network. The result is a technology that literally see the forest for the trees.

Aug. 20, 2009 Stanford Solar Car Project

Posch Daniel copy08-20-09 solar car4 copy

I was stopped in rush hour traffic when I saw an experimental prototype from Stanford Solar Car project called the Apogee (not the Solstice). It definitely turned heads. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a Cash For Clunkers program where you get an electric car?

UPDATE

The driver of that vehicle according to Mr. Sasha Zbrozek was Daniel Posch of Stanford. His perspective can be seen at http://dcposch.blogspot.com/

A few days after these pictures were taken, Chuck Squatriglia of Wired posted an excellent article about the car with splendid pictures by Jim Merithew. Their fine work can be seen at: http://www.wired.com/autopia/2009/08/stanford-solar-car/

I have been covering electric vehicles for many years and I wish Mr. Posch and the rest of the team success in Australia.

And now for some good natured humor…

Top Ten Thoughts on the Apogee

1. No cupholders

2. Can only use the cigarette lighter on really sunny days.

3. Low ground clearance prevents off-roading.

4. Not exempt from chain laws on ski trips.

5. No place to put a bumper sticker.

6. Seats one person or one really close couple.

7. No luggage rack.

8. Needs windsurfing board adapter kit.

9. Needs USB port so you can upload songs to the world’s largest iPhone.

10. Dealer supplied undercoating costs an extra $800.

Aug. 20, 2009 Future Salon FreeRisk

BAF logoAndersen Jesper copySegaran Toby copy

Aug.  20, 2009 in Palo Alto at SAP, the Bay Area Future Salon hosted FreeRisk’s Jesper Andersen and Toby Segaran. Andersen is a statistician, computer scientist and entrepreneur. Segaran is the author of the “Programming Collective Intelligence” and frequently speaks on the subjects of machine learning, collective intelligence and freedom of data.

Why didn’t more people see the current economic downturn coming? There was lots of data flying around but no useful strategy to make sense of it. Andersen and Segaran gave their assessment of current polling and statistical research. Bias is unavoidable. The questions you ask inevitably reflect your perspective. Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s AAA ratings are not enough. If you combine enough information from enough perspectives you can start to get a less biased picture of a complex problem.

How can we avoid this from happening again? They believe the solution will be public-private partnership internet firms with more transparency and market competition. They want to supply corporate financial information that can be openly analyzed to avoid conflicts of interest. FreeRisk aggregates accurate, accredited risk data so users can generate crowd-sourced algorithms to analyze credit risk that will be visible to everyone. They use standardized Extensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) data, public-domain financial data and user-generated content. They also use unstructured data released in financial reports right down to those pesky and suspicious footnotes. Credit evaluators can focus exclusively on creating and applying risk analytics and not worry about IT or database management. No more black-box credit ratings.

They want to create a community of developers so this economic mess never happens again.

Aug. 18, 2009 SDF Business Intelligence in the Cloud

SDF logo2009 copyGali Lenin copyGuanlao Arnel copy

On August 18, 2009 in Palo Alto at SAP, SDForum presented “Cutting Edge Business Intelligence in the Cloud” with Lenin Gali of ShareThis. ShareThis has a widget that allows people to share what they find on the web with others on their social network. It doesn’t matter if it is FaceBook, Twitter, MySpace, or LinkedIn. Their clients include Fox Media, UsMagazine, Wired, ESPN, and movies.com. They built their IT on Amazon EC2, Cascading, Hadoop, Hive and MicroStrategy. They use Aster Data for their Data Warehouse. Text from DJCline.com

If you come from a traditional database IT background, I guarantee that you have never seen an operation like this. Cascading is the processing API for Hadoop Clusters. There are pipes, flows, branches and groups. You get event notification, can write scripts and control it at the tuple level. Hive is the data warehouse built on top of Hadoop. It supports non-complex SQL using HQL. You can build a custom map/reduce jobs for complex analytics. You can still make adhoc queries for large data sets. The Aster Data DW in the cloud is scalable commodity hardware with an Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) Architecture. It uses SQL, Map/Reduce, JDBC, ODBC, and is compatible with Extract Transfer and Load (ETL) tools. Aster Data architecture uses PostgreSQL and has a beehive heirarchy. Queens control the cluster and hold metadata while workers process and store it. If the queen fails it is replaced immediately. Text from DJCline.com

They think that all of this is easier to use and lowers their costs. They keep their headcount down and their revenue up. It works for them. The question is whether it will work elsewhere. Text from DJCline.com

Aug. 18, 2009 SDF Reaching 100

SDF logo2009 copy

I’ve written over a hundred articles for SDForum. You can too.

It is easier than you think. SDForum holds more meetings than Alcoholics Anonymous. There is always a meeting going on somewhere. Someone stands up in front of an audience and says “I’m Bob, and I love technology.” Text from DJCline.com

I go to these events, take notes and pictures and then write about it. I try to get the basic facts straight like how to spell their names and companies they work for. That is the easy part. The hard part is trying boil down incredibly complex ideas into a few sentences. What I do is high tech haiku. Nothing beats getting a message from a reader thanking you for attending that event and explaining it to them.

Sometimes I am the first person to write about a new company or technology. If you write for SDForum, you may get the scoop of a lifetime. You may see an idea that will create a company, jobs and an entire industry. The person you meet at a small event may one day speak at convention center full of people, and you will know them personally. Pretty cool.

This brings up an important point. For all the technology you will see, it is the people you will meet that will stay with you. Tell their stories. Write for SDForum.

On August 6, 2009 in Menlo Park at the Orrick campus, SDForum’s Mobile SIG hosted the leaders of doubleTwist, CEO Monique Farantzos, CTO Jon Lech Johansen and COO Goetz Weber.

Their presentation focused on distribution of digital media and the concepts of open vs. closed ecosystems. What is going on between Apple and doubleTwist? What are the trends in moving content across platforms? Can content move easily between Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and your TV, laptop and cell phone? The platform doubleTwist presents is an open framework for new kinds of messaging.

They have had some success in Japan. Customers use their software to download content onto their cell phones and share it with family and friends. The software can be bundled with SD chips or other media and loaded onto almost any mobile device.

They are up to something. Stay tuned or even iTuned.

On May 26, 2009 at TIBCO in Palo Alto the SDForum Cloud Services SIG hosted Greg Lato of VMware presentation “Private Clouds”. Lato showed IT professionals how to use virtualization by creating a private cloud architecture.

Clouds are not going away but becoming the dominant architecture on the web. Rather than ignore it you should learn how to use it. Virtualization makes it easier to scale IT operations inside and outside the organization. It means closer adherence to industry standards, saner schedules and fewer late night emergency fixes. It also means a cultural shift in the more flexible way you look at users and suppliers. The good news is that if your customers or the market changes you can change with them faster and at lower cost.

July 27, 2009 SDF Private Equity Global Investments

SDF logo2009 copyChoi Jai copyCohen Daniel copyLee Howard copyYu Harold copy

On July 27, 2009 at Orrick in Menlo Park SDForum’s International SIG presented an international private equity panel to discuss “Global Investments”. Harold Yu of Orrick moderated panelists Jai Choi of Partech, Danny Cohen of Gemini and Howard Lee of H Lee Ventures. Text from DJCline.com

If you want to get the attention of an investor, don’t try a cold call or e-mail. Get an introduction from someone they already know through social networking. Your idea should be unique, global in scope but dominating a local market. A silly example would be a social network for pets that is targeted to dominate the South Korean market.Text from DJCline.com

There was no consensus on if the global economy has reached the bottom. Nobody knows. The long loud crash seems to have slowed but signs of growth are hard to find. Europe and North America appear “dead”. Asia, from Israel to China, has the greatest potential for growth. Even that will not live up to expectations anytime soon. For most developed countries a GDP annual growth of one percent would be wonderful. China’s GDP will grow at a little over six percent, which is half of last year’s growth. Africa continues to be largely ignored for investment. Text from DJCline.com

The United States and Silicon Valley must deal with regulatory and educational challenges to remain competitive. We are no longer the first destination for new ideas or capital. Students from other countries now go back to their home countries to start companies.You have to live in a growing market to understand and profit from it. Text from DJCline.com

July 21, 2009 SDF PWC

SDForum copy.jpgbengston-steve-copygarratt-matthew-copyhamid-mamoon-copyrubin-daniel-copyleopoldtilley-alison-2-copywalker-robert-copywood-don-copy

On July 21, 2009 at Pillsbury Winthrop in Palo Alto, SDForum held the Quarterly Venture Breakfast Series in collaboration with PWC. Allison Leopold Tilley of Pillsbury Winthrop moderated panelists Steve Bengston of Pricewaterhouse Coopers, Matt Garratt of Battery Ventures, Mamoon Hamid of USVP, Dan Rubin of Alloy Ventures, Robert Walker of Sierra Ventures and Don Wood of Draper Fisher Jurvetson. They discussed trends in venture investments and how the economic landscape will change over the coming years.

The current investment picture is still flat or falling. Green or clean tech dropped from second to fourth place compared to other investment sectors. The problem is that clean tech is very much a physical infrastructure play, requiring more than what many venture capitalists are willing to invest. Startups are applying for government stimulus funds and some like electric vehicle maker Tesla are getting it, but it is a longer and more complicated process than VCs. While stimulus spending is growing, it is too early to see the impact in clean tech.

Private and government goals sometime are at odds for with each other. Public funds mean public interest. Governments like to incubate companies that create jobs. VCs like companies that create the value and not headcount.

Inside clean tech, the technologies to watch are smart grid and direct current inside the home. Almost every aspect of the smart grid needs to be developed. Historically utilities existed to provide power and encourage consumption. Entrepreneurs should not wait for utilities to change their spots but to push forward on opportunities that do not depend on them.Using an electric car as fuel cell for your home is one idea.

If few appliances require alternating current (AC) inside the home then perhaps a direct current (DC) grid to run them. It might use solid state or LED lighting, dramatically lowering costs. Your clothes dryer might need AC but your laptop computer probably does not.

All the VCs encouraged entrepreneurs to work on their pitches and why their ideas are unique and profitable. They want companies that will dominate their particular sector rather than fight for a percentage of a commodity industry. Be the biggest frog in your pond not the smallest shark  in the ocean.

July 17, 2009 Future Salon Brain Plasticity

BAF logo2.jpgmerzenerich-michael-copy

On July 17, 2009 at the SAP campus in Palo Alto, The Future Salon hosted Professor Michael M. Merzenich, Ph.D. co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Posit Science. He presented “Why Humans May Be Too Neurologically Limited To Successfully Rule The World”.

To paraphrase from the film “The Graduate”, the future is one word “plasticity”. Merzenich went through the whole development of the brain from birth to old age. He thinks it is important to stay connected to other people and interact with the natural world because that is how we evolved. The brain is incredibly flexible thing that must be used or it will atrophy.

Brain plasticity means you can teach a puppy or old dog new tricks. Actually most of the research was done on rats. Merzenich showed how older drivers could regain their peripheral vision using training software. It makes them more independent and productive.

He also talked about how to make people less productive. Did you know that most of the communication a child gets in a poor family is negative or corrective and in a wealthy family it is positive or supportive? This has enormous impact on whether a child winds up in prison. Detaching and trying to isolate people at risk eventually puts everyone at risk.

Some things are hardwired and difficult to override. He spoke of Sweden’s literacy program where they discovered that dyslexia persisted despite their best efforts in about five percent of the population. They had to make allowances for this disability in their schools. In another example, people with PTSD vividly relive their trauma. Neurologically, it never dissipates. Restitution and treatment for survivors works best, but it is still a major injury that never goes away.

Ultimately, the more positive neural stimulation you get, the more complex tasks you can learn. Get out of your routine. Keep moving. Don’t stay at a job for ten years, it’ll rot your brain.

On July 14, 2009 at SAP in Palo Alto, SDForum and Astia hosted “Clean Tech Breakfast #3: World Water Crisis: Technology Based Solutions”. Lisa Cole of Nixon Peabody moderated panelists Will Coleman of Mohr Davidow Ventures, Rick DeGolia of Environmental Entrepreneurs, Victor Hwang of T2 Venture Capital, Tamin Pechet of Catamount Ventures, and Laura Shenkar of The Artemis Project.

Civilizations run on water and we are facing a worldwide water crisis. Millions of people compete with industry and agriculture for access to safe drinking water. In California over ninety percent of the water goes to irrigation and the rest for urban centers. All of it is delivered through an aging infrastructure. In Boston half the water never reaches its destination due to leaky pipes. It also takes energy. Almost twenty percent of the electricity in California is used to pump water to the Los Angeles Basin.

Small improvements in the way we use water can reap huge dividends. Water saving toilets can cut consumption in half. If less snow is stored in the mountains for use in the summer, big improvements can be made in reservoirs and underground storage.

Much more can be done. Leaks can be found and plugged. Software can track water usage and help distribute it more efficiently. Gray water can be sent through purple pipes to water lawns. Better yet, we can xeriscape and reduce demand even more. Technology can purify and recycle water or desalinize it. We are drowning in opportunities to save water and make money.

July 9, 2009 SDF Social Networking

SDForum copy.jpgbailey-tim-copykanakamedala-sam-copysupplee-ward-copywalker-jules-copywright-ben-copy

On July 9, 2009 at White & Lee LLP in Redwood City SDForum hosted Tim Bailey, President of Alliance-Strategies. Bailey’s presentation was “Social Networking Increases Your Opportunities”.

Before diving into social networking, listen to Bailey. He says social networking is too big for companies and individuals to ignore and there are ways to make the most of it. Think about your brand’s short term and long-term strategy. Who is your audience and what do you want to tell them? What are your strengths and weaknesses?

The most important social networking phenomena are LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. Bailey went through each of them discussing their advantages and disadvantages. LinkedIn is for professionals. Facebook is less formal and more personal. Twitter is wild and still forming. After carefully assessing them, start slowly building your network on the people and companies you know and trust. He thinks you can spend about a half hour a day maintaining it. Keep it honest and fun and people will want to get involved.

Social networking is so huge a topic that it needs at least a one-day seminar just to cover the highlights. The large audience had lots of questions that Bailey tried to answer as succinctly as possible in two short hours. I look forward to hearing more from him on this subject.

June 24, 2009 SDF Women And Technology In Developing Nations

SDForum copy.jpgfleming-heather-copynagash-almaz-copypinto-annabelle-copyramsey-heather-copysaxena-anurahda-copy

On Wednesday June 24, 2009 in Menlo Park at Sun Microsystems the SDForum Tech Women’s Program presented “Women & Technology in Developing Nations”. Almaz Negash of Entwine Global moderated panelists Heather Fleming of Catapult Design, Heather Ramsey of Institute of International Education, Anu Saxena of Barefoot College, and Anabelle Pinto of Cisco Networking Academy. They discussed women using technology in Africa, China, Latin America and the Middle East.

Technology can dramatically improve the lives of women around the world. Access to education and the Internet is crucial for raising the status of women and fighting poverty that only leads to more fighting. The panelists showed how illiterate women can be trained to build sustainable technology and earn a living.

The barriers are large but not insurmountable. Around the world, women need access to technology and education. They must have the freedom to move about, to go to school, to marry later and have fewer children. A macro investment in micro lending can make the difference in the lives of billions of women and their families.

Yesterday on the Internet I saw a street demonstration busted up in Iran. A man pointed a gun at a woman. She pointed a cell phone at him. It said volumes about how women use technology. The real power was in her hands.

June 11, 2009 STC Volunteers

stclogonew1.jpg

On Thursday June 11, 2009 the STC Silicon Valley Chapter Council held its annual dinner at Il Postino in Sunnyvale. What started out two years ago as a happy few is now a happy multitude. I literally turned the keys over to President Pat Harvey. The chapter now has experienced leadership and sharp volunteers ready to face whatever challenges the future brings.

Thanks to those who were there at the beginning and worked hard to make this happen. Joanne Grey started the ball rolling. Guy Haas and then the amazing Todd Hawley wrestled with the weirdest website in the world. Pat Harvey knew the rules and kept us on track. Andrea Ames backed our changes. Connie Stewart and Revathi Sampath did their jobs in spite of everything. And of course there is the incredible story of Viki Maki. If you ever need a team and a person to lead it, call Viki.

Viki Maki found great people like Karen Aidi, Jackie Athey, Marcie Gugenheim, Don Hines, Farozan Jivraj, David Katsumoto, Lauren Katzive, Bob Kauten, Gina Luzzi, Greg Martin, John McClements, Meg Miranda, Theresa Stanley, Mary Vue, and Karen White. They are tomorrow’s leadership. I hope they work in every council job, learning what it takes so when the day comes they can step in to the role of president and do what must be done.

I now get to be Immediate Past President, the grandparent who spoils the kids. Since the most recent adventure began, I figure I’ve attended over a hundred meetings and given away a hundred iPods. Last night everyone got LED flashlights and thumb drives in little pirate pouches. On to the next success.

Note to Earnest: The facts are now indisputable and the truth is self-evident. The extraordinary accomplishment is well-earned. Votes have been counted and the verdict is in. Being right has its advantages. Enjoy the rain.

Sitting by the pool, laughing. -DJ

May 27, 2009 SDF Hadoop, MapReduce, Cascade

SDForum copy.jpgwensel-chris-copy

On May 27, 2009 in Palo Alto the SDForum SAM SIG presented “Hadoop Architecture, MapReduce Patterns, and Best Practices with Cascading” by Chris K. Wensel, the founder of Concurrent Inc.

“Abstract: A rapid introduction to Hadoop architecture, MapReduce patterns, and best practices with Cascading.

Hadoop is an open source implementation of the Google MapReduce processing model and has been widely embraced by startups and established companies like Yahoo! and Amazon. Cascading, also an open source project, is an alternative API to MapReduce that allows developers to rapidly create sophisticated applications on the Hadoop platform.

Unfortunately the MapReduce model can be very complex to manipulate when attempting to perform tasks developers take for granted when using relational style databases, like joins and secondary sorting of grouped values.

Further, integrating Hadoop with external systems requires a deep knowledge of its internals. But this is where Hadoop clusters offer the most value, of off-loading data cleansing and data migration tasks from traditional tools and expensive load sensitive systems.

Cascading is an API that replaces the “Map” and “Reduce” primitives and their associated Key/Value algebra with functions, filters, and aggregators, and links them all together with a familiar columns and records model. And provides key processing primitives familiar to developers.

In this presentation, we will present the Hadoop architecture, how MapReduce influences that architecture and is used for common tasks, and how Cascading helps developers rapidly build sophisticated data processing and orchestration applications that can be very simply tested and executed.”

May 13, 2009 SDF Virtual Economies

SDForum copy.jpgauchroy-herve-copy.jpgclarke-jori-copy.jpgduranske-benjamin-copy.jpggrosso-bill-3-copy.jpghallinan-peter-copy.jpgholroyd-barry-copy.jpgketner-bob-3-copy.jpgtrondath-eilie-copy.jpg

On May 13, 2009 in Palo Alto at Pillsbury Winthrop SDForum’s Emerging Technology SIG hosted Bill Grosso of Twofish. He presented ‘Virtual Worlds and Real Metrics: Tangible Statistics about Imaginary Goods’.

Several years ago I watched Second Life ban gambling and banking as people misbehaved in virtual economies. To me, virtual economies allowed people to do virtually anything they wanted. I watched what happened there and saw it reflected in the real world. If more economic activity like purchasing virtual goods and services was going to take place, I shuddered at the thought of a digital dismal science, but there is hope.

Bill Grosso has thought about virtual economics more than anyone and says there are differences between it and the real world. We need more and better management tools than to just “avoid hyperinflation” or worse. We need an agreed-upon consensus as to the key metrics to use in doing so.

He started with some history (covering some early ideas in measuring virtual economies) and then explored some of the metrics that make sense for a virtual economy. He talked about how to increase profit in a virtual world and how to detect interesting user behaviors and profiles through economic measures. He showed screenshots of how Twofish’s analytics platform illustrated key points.

First there was a fireside chat with Catherine Cook of MyYearbook and Sergio Monsalve of Norwest Venture Partners.

Josh Lowensohn of CNET’s Webware moderated panel of college students including Stanford’s Nathan Evans and Ricky Yean, Jeff Widman of Western Washington University, and Grace Wai-Sze Wu of Santa Clara University. They discussed how they use technology and their personal interest in technology, entrepreneurship.

Allison Leopold Tilley of Pillsbury Winthrop moderated the second panel on “Understanding the Teen Market” with Jennifer Carole of Listen2Youth, Adam Jackson and Marjana Spasojevic of Nokia.

Tim Draper of Draper Fisher Jurvetson gave a keynote that was fearless, funny and unflappable. He told the young audience that the bad news could be good news if they could find the opportunities that others could not.

Jeff Siebert and Kimber Lockhardt of Increo Solutions talked about their ‘Profile in Teen Entrepreneurship’ and how they changed their strategies in the face of competition.

Allison Leopold Tilley of Pillsbury Winthrop moderated the third panel with high school students Anika Ayar, Victoria Leon, Max Marmer, Jack Montgomery, Adan Perez, and Tyler Stout. They discussed how they use technology and their personal interest in technology, entrepreneurship.

Laurie Lumenti Garty of Silicon Valley Bank moderated the third panel on “Teen Outreach: What the Tech Companies have to Offer” with Rich Friedrich of Hewlett-Packard, Dana Nguyen of Google, Kenny Spade of Microsoft, and Jocelyn Zona of IBM.

On May 5, 2009 at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, Georgia, the STC held its annual awards banquet recognizing achievements in the technical communication profession. Despite two wars, a depression and an epidemic, the show went on. Some things you just can’t stop. All the evidence was presented, all the votes were counted, all the judges decided. The experts agreed. Pat Lufkin and DJ Cline from the Silicon Valley Chapter were made Associate Fellows. For the complete list of winners go to STC.org. Big thanks to Nathaniel Lim for standing in for me at the rehearsal. We are often confused for one another. I hope to be his stand-in someday.

I’ve done just about everything I wanted to do at STC. The challenge now is make sure other people have that opportunity. Since I’ve been president, the Silicon Valley Chapter has increased revenue, cut expenses, seen new membership, raised its visibility in the local community and online. It is my hope that the same thing can be done at the international level. Don’t be surprised if I show up at your local meeting to learn from you.

Enjoy the pictures, if you look carefully you’ll see crow was on the menu for some. :-)
