From the article:  "Among those who spoke out [in 2014] in favor of a ban included +Andy Palmer , serial start-up founder and investor, who told lawmakers: 'Please do not make me and folks like me move to California.' " (His latest company, +tamr does not require non-competes.)
In a city — and state — that prides itself on emphasizing innovation, noncompetes have long been lamented as a metaphorical extinguisher on the fast-growing startup community. This clause,...

Great thinking from +Holger Pirk, new post-doc at MIT CSAIL.

New on the blog: Conventional wisdom about in-memory data management systems says that even the best will eventually hit a "Memory Wall," where performance is constrained by the time it takes to get data from primary storage. Researcher Holger Pirk of +CSAIL MIT posits that the bigger obstacle to true interactive data management may be the "Brain Wall." Read on.  
by Holger Pirk, MIT CSAIL*. Background. With current RAM prices at less than $10K for a Terabyte, in-memory data management is viable, even for “big” data – especially for big data. Given enough Variety and Veracity, however, analyzing a Terabyte of “big” data can be challenging.

Good read for PR folks, particularly those working for start-ups.  High on the "don't" list: using buzzwords.  (Thanks to HARO for the link.)
It's launch day. You've emailed hundreds of journalists about your startup, but get no response. Why? 6 journalists tell you how (not to) pitch to them.

Serial entrepreneur Andy Palmer on why investing in the best - and most targeted/strategic - benefits packages you can afford is in the best interest of early-stage start-up management teams. And how this strategy is playing out at one start-up: Tamr, his latest start-up with database pioneer Michael Stonebraker. (BTW, this strategy includes eliminating non-competes - read the post to learn why.)

Congratulations to +Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)  Professor Michael Stonebraker on receiving the Turing Award for his contributions to the foundation and evolution of modern database systems.  Beyond his significant contributions to industry and academia, many of his students have gone on to become innovators in database research and its commercial application. At 71, Mike is working on his 9th database start-up: +tamr.
 
Congratulations to ISTC co-director Michael Stonebraker of +MIT CSAIL, who has been awarded the +Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) 's prestigious A.M.Turing Award, often referred to as the "Nobel Prize for computing." In its announcement today, ACM said that Stonebraker “invented many of the concepts that are used in almost all modern database systems ... and founded numerous companies successfully commercializing his pioneering database technology work.” 
CSAIL researcher invented core database concepts, turned many into companies.

Story
Tagline
Thinker, Marketing Writer, Muse & Creative-Communications Problem-Solver for Businesses
Introduction
Janice L. Brown specializes in using communications to position technology ventures, launch new companies and products, and develop industry thought leader programs. I have worked with technology companies since 1979 (beginning with Data General, Prime Computer and Computervision) and with health care, biotechnology and medical devices businesses since 1978. I've  been involved with Internet marketing and social media since 1990 (bulletin boards on CompuServe), and have helped launch online communities, a search engine and a browser.
 
When I'm not working with entrepreneurs, I am thinking about working with entrepreneurs - and sometimes reading, writing for personal enjoyment, cooking, watching films, learning languages, hiking and traveling to places that require at least two airplanes to get there. I also make citizen's arrests for poor grammar and evasive language.
Bragging rights
I am the luckiest consultant in the world. I have worked with some terrific entrepreneurs to help launch several dozen start-ups. My work has won numerous awards. More importantly, many of my clients stay with me for years, bringing me into their next ventures. And often becoming friends.
