The inventor who may kill the power cord

Meredith Perry is working on a technology that would allow us to walk into any uBeam-equipped room and find that our electronic devices immediately begin charging, writes Marco della Cava in Change Agents.

Claire Teninges's insight:

Here's how it works. uBeam's transmitter is a wafer-thin square the size of a salad plate that punches out ultrasonic frequencies much like a speaker creates sound. The receiver, currently in the form of a smartphone case, resonates at the same high frequency and turns that imperceptible movement into energy, charging the phone.

uBeam's transmitter doesn't go through walls, so a square tile is required for each room. Although uBeam is still a few years from being consumer-ready, Perry is convinced her "competitively priced" creation will find its way into our homes and any commercial space where devices are used.  

According to CEO Meredith Perry  "What I've seen over the years is people making tiny improvements in existing technology as opposed to saying, 'Let's throw this all out and do something new,'" she says. "I know the odds are so against me. But I wouldn't start a company and bust my (rear) for years unless we were working on something orders of magnitude better than anything else out there."

Personnellement, je suis un accro des moteurs de recherche, dès que je trouve une alternative à Google, je le teste pendant quelques jours pour savoir s’il correspond à mes besoins de marketeur averti :-).

c’est l’énervement qui me gagne ce matin, notamment contre les nombreux articles que j’ai pu lire sur le constat d’échec des flux RSS (et par analogie des autres technologies de syndication)... 

Non, les flux RSS ne sont pas morts, bien au contraire

Un article très intéressant sur les flux RSS, qui différencie les usages de cette technologie (usage grand public, qui tombe en désuétude, usage professionnel, qui reste à forte valeur ajoutée). Dommage que les usages de la curation (il y a des usages très intéressant, notamment dans le cadre d'équipes) ne soient pas suffisamment différenciés. 
Et aussi des conseils d'utilisation d'outils.
