The past year has thrown me into the speaking circuit and I am incredibly grateful. I’ve gotten the chance to get in front of other people in my field and teach them things about my experiences in the smart phone connectivity and infotainment space. This of course comes with more travel. I want to keep this short because I’m sure everyone has experienced these things, instead, it’s more of a quick rant. But of course you need a strong sense of sarcasm and light heartedness when reading. Enjoy, or don’t; it’s really up to you.
Well I’m heading off to Las Vegas later today to attend the 2013 CTIA conference. This will be my first time attending and I’m looking forward to checking out all the cool and nerdy things. (And who doesn’t love a conference in Vegas!?!)
And of course iI wouldn’t be able to have a successful trip unless I got a chance to flap my gums in front of people. So I will be speaking at the App Summit event going on during CTIA. I will be co-presenting with Linda Senigaglia the Senior Director of Product Marketing at Navigation Solutions. They are a division of Hertz rental cars that creates the cool navigation devices that get put in the rental cars.
The talk is entitled Auto-Mobility and it is focused on some of the new technology going into the car making it more personalized experience. I will also be going through the sort of “state of Smartphone Connectivity” in regards to infotainment.
If you are attending the event, or just happen to be living in up in Vegas this week get a hold of me!
Here at Livio, we recently wrapped up version 5 of our product Livio Connect. Livio Connect is a protocol that connects smartphones with cars. The days started to become fewer as we approached the deadline, but the amount of work didn’t seem to let up. When it looked like we may be going past the deadline my boss, Jake Sigal, asked if we needed some more help. He would get more people to help with the project. This rang a bell for me, this was a perfect example of “Brooke’s Law.”
Ignorance is a crippling disease as it spreads by airborne transmission past one person’s lips to another’s ears, who in return only starts the process over again. The epidemic cares not if you’re liberal or conservative, man or woman, white, black, purple or any color of the spectrum. It doesn’t care what god you pray to at night, or how much money you make. It is a virus that can only be stopped by the immunity called knowledge. This miracle drug is free of charge and available to anyone who seeks it. So instead of being guilty of transmitting this sickness, check your facts before you open your mouth and start the recovery.
