Start with Why!

We've discussed this many times at Past EOK meetings but it deserves another post. If you haven't watched the TED Talk by Simon Sinek "Start with Why", you need to set aside a few minutes and get it done...now.See More

This is why Google Glass is Dead

I would be the last person in the world to say Microsoft is an innovation company.  They have squashed a lot of their best ideas, or bought out companies and made them a ho-hum part of the Microsoft Borg.  And that goes for Nokia, a has-been major cell phone manufacturer.  The new CEO, however, seems to have kicked things into gear.  And the product announced today, Microsoft HoloLens, is revolutionary.  It puts 3D objects into your field of view, sometimes integrated with physical objects like…See More

We've created a wordpress site for Knoxville Startups.  I'm looking for a few volunteers to help build/maintain the site.  We also need some volunteers to support the social media and youtube channels.

I need everyone to edit the page and add their startup: http://www.eokhq.com/group/scss/page/the-scss-list  Austin was able to edit and add closeup.fm with no issues.

I thought some people in this group could appreciate this link. http://designmodo.com/startup/

Everyone needs to complete this submission form: https://docs.google.com/a/eokhq.com/forms/d/16aHK8IF3KdInSamd022fMZ...

It would also be great to have everyone's one page for their startup.  I'm attaching one for FairMechanics.com  It's not perfect but is a start.

So what are we doing here?.. creating a company?

Comment by Austin L. Church on December 9, 2013 at 2:55pm

Smart? That's just a nasty rumor going around. Don't believe a word of it!

Comment by Leonard Knight on December 9, 2013 at 2:50pm

Well...you are a VERY smart person and I value your opinion!

Comment by Austin L. Church on December 9, 2013 at 2:29pm

I see you went with the name I threw out at the KEC meeting. Very cool!
