How do you protect your personal data?

If you're like me, you probably have a ton of content stored in various digital places. I've had my external hard drive for a while and it has been a lifesaver when I need to keep my data with me. My hard drive and I were doing so well with my travel and work... until one day, it just went kaput! I didn't know what to think of it. Of course, the first thing I did was panic because all of my photos, content and everything else that's important to me was on that external hard drive. How could this happen? My thinking was that if my laptop went down then I'd still have my files with me on the ext[...]

Other great attractions at OpenWorld were the 460 business partner exhibits lining the Moscone West and Moscone South exhibition halls. Oracle customers, partners and supporters came together to geek out over software, tips and tricks, and hear about the future of Oracle. That future is clear: the cloud. The conference kept coming back to the cloud and technology that is being tai[...]

The Future of Information is here: The Internet of Things ( IoT)

Posted on HuffPost Tech In early September at the Supermobility/CTIA conferences, I moderated a discussion about the future for the Internet of Things (IoT). The women in technology panel focused on multiple layers of the IOT world. With the world being constantly plugged into different devices, we're becoming super connected to everything, changing the consumer and business landscape. Our discussions covered what some top companies are developing as best practices in IOT -- from infrastructure and R&D to market strategy and successes or failures within each structure. We had[...]

The Secret Sauce to Successful Crowdsourcing Campaigns

Repost from HuffingtonPost Tech  Lately, I've had more people asking me what the secret sauce of a successful crowdsourcing campaign is. It's quite simple, but it's more than just getting consumers to vote, like, or jump on the bandwagon and buy the products you are creating. It's about actually creating an entire brand experience for followers. You need to be willing to dig into detailed planning that integrates streamlined action items into that plan. Strategic thinking is invaluable in crowdsourcing activities. We live in an age of entrepreneurial overload, after all -- how are you going[...]
