I love 3D Printing, I am not quite sure why mind you, I think it the idea of the Star Trek Replicator becoming a reality! A very good article about the practical pathway for this technology.

INfographic: Green Manufacturing Over Time

INfographic: Green Manufacturing Over Time | scatol8® | Scoop.it

In the last decade alone, the worldwide demand for the manufacture of goods has risen, resulting in increased levels of C02 emissions in the world's atmosphere. In 2010, 33,000 tons of C02 released into the atmosphere as a result of manufacturing.


If we don't reduce this number, these greenhouse gases will change the world for good. So, what are companies doing in the way of green manufacturing? This infographic investigates this, while reviewing the numerous positives of turning to a deeper shade of green.

It also shares what consumers are saying to green companies, their demands for more sustainable products, and the promise of safety, health and energy saving and even during an economic downturn. Also indicated on this infographic is the increased power of consumers to make companies more eco-friendly, and manufacturers are now realizing the value of eco-friendly companies, contributing to a more sustainable shared future...

Konza Techno City masterplan by SHoP Architects | scatol8® | Scoop.it

New images and movie of Konza Techno City masterplan in Kenya by Manhattan-based firm SHoP Architects.


Work is already underway on the pavilion that forms part of the first phase of SHoP Architects' masterplan for Konza Techno City, a business and technology hub that's been dubbed Kenya's "silicon savannah" 40 miles from the capital, Nairobi.


The $14.5 billion project will transform an area of grassland into a city of 250,000 residents. The city is expected to generate up to 200,000 jobs by the time its final phase is completed in 2030. The first phase, to be built over five years, will house 30,000 residents and be shaped like a row of "stitches" in the overall masterplan. The east-west axis of the first phase includes a boulevard of green spaces with bridges over the wide motorway leading to Nairobi. The four initial north-south axes will comprise, from west to east, a university, a residential area, a technology and life sciences district and a business district...

Start With a Business Model, Not a Business Plan - Steve Blank @sgBlank

Start With a Business Model, Not a Business Plan - Steve Blank @sgBlank | scatol8® | Scoop.it

   Where did the idea that startups write business plans come from? In the early days of venture capital, investors and entrepreneurs were familiar with the format of business plans from large companies and adopted it for startups. Without much thought it has been used ever since.

 

   A business plan is the execution document that existing companies write when planning product-line extensions where customer, market and product features are known. The plan is an operating document describes the execution strategy for addressing these “knowns.”

   A startup is notabout executing a series of knowns. Most startups are facing a series of unknowns – unknown customer segments, unknown customer needs, unknown product feature set, etc.That means that writing a static business plan first adds no value to starting a company, as the plan does not represent the iterative nature of the search for the model.

15 Of The Sharpest Up And Coming CEOs In Silicon Valley

15 Of The Sharpest Up And Coming CEOs In Silicon Valley | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Here's the Tech CEO best of the best list via Business Insider. Tech startups CEOs give a great view of what's next.


Here's two from the full list that were quite fetching in ingenuity and business style.  It's also an easy to browse, via click, article. ~  Deb


Excerpts:


Jamie Wong speaks multiple languages and has spent her life traveling the world. Now she's building a startup that makes it much easier for everyone to do the same.]


Vayable basically shortens the process of planning a vacation from 30 hours down to about 5 minutes. It makes it easy to plan "experiences," like touring the Louvre with a French student instead of riding a tour bus around town.


Patrick Collison's Stripe has become the go-to provider for accepting payments online. It makes it dead simple to add a way to pay for things on just about any app.


That's great for other founders, because payments are typically the most tricky part of building an application, and can take months to finally get off the ground. With Stripe, it's just a few lines of code.
