The Comunicano Communique

 
 

This past week and weekend I was up in Seattle as part of my "see what's what where." While it's obvious that Seattle is growing and attracting more technology companies, and with each trip to the region I find that the city is vibrant with a younger and more sophisticated crowd. What I also observed:

  • A massive increase in homelessness on the street. It reminded me of SF in 2000 when I lived there for six months full time. This is going to impact the crime rate.
  • Uber drivers are almost all immigrants. While in SF, SD and LA I see more "locals" or college age drivers, up in Seattle not one was a local after four days of Ubering. Uber drivers in Seattle are totally GPS dependant unlike locals in L.A., SD who are savvy enough to take better routes.
  • Less old, more young. Wandering around, hitting cafe's and restaurants I found the age to be more 20's and 30s and less 40's and 50s. 
  • If you thought Starbucks was the king of coffee, all one has to see is the number of new cafe's and roasters opening up. If anything Starbucks is causing a resurgence in cafe life, but by no means do they have a monopoly in their own backyard.

So read today's Comunicano Communique and get into the news.

By the way, don't miss the API event of the summer in Las Vegas. "All About The API"......

Why Western Mass Doesn't Have the Internet 

A new report about Western Mass's fiber fiasco sheds light on the national failure to provide high-speed digital access to rural America W elcome to Western Massachusetts: gently rolling hills, spreading trees, small and mid-size towns (many of them struggling), and adorable clusters of wood-frame houses pressing right up against the roads.

For a long time, the cost of a fast, high-end smartphone with the latest technology seemed definite. You were paying $600 or $700 no matter whether you did it up front or spread out over the course of a two-year carrier contract. This doesn't have to be the case today, however.

Why Is It That....

Hotels install additional power outlets, once, and then as time goes on and many guests shove in oversized plugs or the outlets just get worn out your newer, slightly weightier iPhone/iPad charger no longer stay in the outlet?

Some Uber drivers cancel a ride more often after dropping off another passenger, after accepting your ride, when surge pricing goes into effect?

There's always someone in the TSA pre-check line ahead of you when you're in a rush and they don't belong there slowing down the whole system?

The two big themes coming out of the event are API's to work with Facebook and Live Video.  Thus Facebook is really going after the ability to be present in your life all the time. The series of stories below are a nice primer, so I encourage you to look at what they are up to and draw your own conclusions so needless to say, "the Times, they are a changing.

So read today's Comunicano Communique and get into the news.

Yesterday on Business Rockstars with Ken Rutkowski, we talked about the cool apps, sites and tools to make you a better entrepreneur. The three you can watch from yesterday were:

Inside Microsoft's build-a-bot strategy | ZDNet

Tomorrow, Facebook is expected to roll out new bot-related programming interfaces and possibly new chatbots of its own at its F8 developer conference. Microsoft recently used its own Build developer event to talk up our bot-centric future. In the couple of weeks since then, I've been watching recorded Build bot sessions and following various links to understand more about Microsoft's approach.

The Comunicano Communique

 
 

Today is a sad day in Philadelphia and all across the world of sports and philanthropy with the passing of an icon, Ed Snider. As someone who grew up in so many ways thanks to Mr. Snider, today is one sad day for just as it is for everyone who ever was a part of the very extended Snider/Flyers' family, but most of all for Ed's children whom I knew, grew up around and worked with. 

Those who know me, know I grew up in sports from the age of 14, and so much that has followed was made possible because of Edward M. Snider. It was he who offered Ed Tepper, my first boss with the Philadelphia Wings their franchise. That was a startup pro lacrosse team in 1974. Yes, 1974, the year the Flyers won their first of two Stanley Cups. May 19th of that year is a day I will never, ever forget.

Two years later, in 1976, Ed Snider along with Aaron Siegel and the late Ken Genser started something called Hockey Central, which has now pretty much morphed into Snider Hockey and other youth hockey related activities the Flyers back.

Back in September of 1976, as a senior in high school, I was one of three founding employees who started Hockey Central before the first check was even in the bank. Less than two years later, while ending my freshman year in college, I was asked to run Hockey Central, being named as Executive Director, before eventually holding the title of President when I left to go west in 1988 and join the Coors Classic and eventually the Denver Nuggets. None of that could have happened if Ed Snider didn't buy into the vision of so many ideas and so much that was created that remains today.

Along the way I held a few other roles and positions within the Flyers organization, including Office Manager and Manager of Amateur Hockey Affairs, plus almost always being to go-to exec for Special Projects like Bobby Clarke's Retirement Night while Ed's son Jay was President of the Team.

But no matter who was at the helm, the Flyers were always Ed's team, just as Bobby Clarke was Ed's other son.

RIP Ed...RIP.

There's plenty of news in today's Comunicano Communique, so grab your coffee mug, tea or chai and get on with the news.

Why API management is enabling today's digital economy 

APIs expose data for use by apps and the developers that create them. They make enterprise assets reachable by apps, and they're the tool that enterprises use to add a digital layer to their interactions with customers, employees and partners.

Verizon to bring back unlimited data, but only for IoT

 
  Unlimited data plans have been creeping back into the toolboxes of some mobile operators, though usually with more stringent fair usage terms than before as MNOs try to preserve their networks from overload. T-Mobile USA and Sprint both have unlimited options, and Verizon is poised to reintroduce them too - but only for Internet of Things customers, whose usage is less threatening to network capacity.
