Apologies for the lack of posts today. We had a great group for a walking tour of the show. Thanks to everyone who joined!

A very fine line handwriting app and stylus.

My handwriting has deteriorated completely (see photo) as I work with keyboards and lately more dictation. I think they are serving a small and shrinking market.

A staged photo shoot. Very calming to find this in the middle of the show floor.

The most beautiful tv of the show, speaking personally. Samsung, panoramic, curved, 4k.

Everybody has a DJ. All the DJ's know who Avici is.

Smartwatch from Qualcomm. Still not nailed yet.

I'm betting that Apple can do it.

Ford's solar powered car. Prototype. No production plans. Even so the idea is great.

Get enough sun to power your daily driving needs. Inevitable.

The prototype says the car will drive itself around a parking lot to follow the sun.

Cisco explains the internet of everything. Things talking to each other will change everything.

One photo is an example of a retailer tracking activity across multiple platforms.

Another is an example in the home. A kid is reaching for a box of cookies. He has a gluten allergy. The box has an RFID tag with ingredient information. His watch reads this information as he gets close to the box. The watch vibrates and alerts him not to eat the cookies. He's just left the kitchen when I took the photo.

Story
Tagline
Born in D.C. As an adult I've lived in Europe.
Introduction
I was born in Washington, D.C. in 1976. As an adult I have lived primarily in Europe. 

My first job was on a small horse farm at 12 years old. I took care of three arabian horses after school. At 16 I began working on election campaigns for US Congressman Jim Talent. Each of the four campaigns brought new challenges, competitors, issues and media environments. It was there that I discovered my love of starting organizations with small groups of dynamic people. 

I have been fortunate to be able to help grow dozens of organizations. In some I am able to support with ideas, by connecting people or by supplying capital. In others, I serve as the leader during the initial phase until another leader emerges to take the organization forward.  

I have helped grow a wide range of organizations. One of the first lobbied for healthy food at the college cafeteria. This was followed by a community garden project in a disadvantaged city in the US. Recently I have been involved in advertising, technology, services, fashion and real estate. 

I have also served as a director and in an advisor role to several companies and two Chambers of Commerce. Occasionally I lecture in MBA programs. 

I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Currently I am a Commis (Chef) at Restaurant Me. I began cooking at the age of 10. Bon Appetit is the first magazine I read regularly, cover to cover and now I am a fan of their online version at Epicurious.com. My cooking inspirations are my grandmother, my friend Manolo, Hug at Kaiku, Thang at Restaurante Me and Rebés at Embat. 

I'm also a gadget fan. Both early adopting and long suffering.
