FounderLY: An Open Platform for Sharing Startup Stories

first_imgaudrey watters Tags:#Interviews#start Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketcenter_img One of the best part of my jobs as a technology journalist is getting to hear founders’ stories. I have some really great, memorable experiences of talking to entrepreneurs – not just about what they’re building, but why. Sometimes these are stories that, in turn, end up in the articles I write. Sometimes they’re not – off topic, off the record, and what have you. But I feel pretty lucky that, as a journalist, I get the chance to hear so many great ones.Not everyone is in that position, of course, due to occupation, geography, or time. For his part Matthew Wise wondered what it would have been like to hear stories from founders like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates during their early years. As he told me, while Larry Page and Sergey Brin were building Google in Silicon Valley, Wise was a Marine combat medic in the Southeast Asia.Wise has taken that interest in stories and created a new media project that will help me sure more of this founder lore is indeed documented. FounderLY launches today as an open source platform for entrepreneurs to share their stories through short form interviews.The Untold Stories of EntrepreneurshipThese are the stories that haven’t necessarily been told before, and as the interviews are conducted by and for entrepreneurs (rather than by the media for that publication’s audience) they have a different sort of intimacy. The videos are all shot in an Errol Morris-stye (with a talking head and no intrusion – visual or audio – from the interviewer).It’s a labor of love on the part of Wise and his co-founder Andy Saebjoernsen, who in Wise’s words invested their “social capital” in securing some of the early interviews for the project. But once word got out, interested snowballed, and while the website launches today with six founder videos (including ones from Naval Ravikant and Vivek Wadhwa), Wise and Saebjoernsen already have filmed 36 – all accomplished over the course of four weeks.Open Source StorytellingFounderLY is an open platform, and others are encouraged to contribute their stories. Any founder may film another fellow founder, so long as you follow the FounderLY interview roadmap , and submit the video to FounderLY. FounderLY will then package it with an intro, bumper, and a closing, and publish it to their website, along with some transcription help from SpeakerText. It’s all openly-licensed with the hope that the media will use the content.Wise says he’s observed the “renaissance” we’re seeing in entrepreneurship right now and he contends there’s no way the press can capture all these stories. FounderLY thinks entrepreneurs can help, and in turn everyone can be inspired and invigorated by what’s shared. Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…last_img read more

Apple to make 3-5 million smartwatches monthly: Report

first_imgApple logo.Apple Inc is preparing to sell its first wearable device this October, aiming to produce 3 million to 5 million smartwatches a month in its initial run, the Nikkei reported on Friday, citing an unidentified parts supplier and sources familiar with the matter.Specifications are still being finalized, but the devices are likely to sport curved OLED (organic light-emitting diode) displays and sensors that collect health data from blood glucose and calorie consumption to sleep activity, the Japanese news service cited industry sources as saying.The industry has long expected Apple to unveil some sort of smartwatch, following the release of Samsung Electronics’ Galaxy Gear watches.Wall Street is hoping to see a new Apple product this year to galvanize the former stock market darling’s share price and end a years-long drought of ground-breaking devices. CEO Tim Cook has promised “new product categories” in 2014.Apple declined to comment. (Reporting by San Francisco newsroom. Editing by Andre Grenon)last_img read more
