Halloween Walk Through the Neighborhood - 10/31/11 11:56 PM
Happy Halloween Everyone! I took a Halloween walk through the neighborhood with my wife and kids (aged 5 and 3 now). This is the longest I have lived in one house - seven years. The CEO and CFO of a previous company convinced my wife and me to finally buy a house in 2004. We put offers on 7 other offers, but finally "won" our house when we were willing to go to the top of our escalator. Yes, it was 2004. I think we are about break-even on our house, but we love it. In fact, my wife and I (11 comments)
Replace Your Thermostat with Nest Learning Thermostat - 10/25/11 12:56 PM
Replace Your Thermostat with Nest Learning Thermostat Nest Labs just announced their new learning thermostat yesterday which seems really really intriguing. The story may be more interesting than the actual product, but let's see. My former company was a cleantech company called Bio Architecture Lab which is converting low cost seaweeds (macroalgae) into biofuels and renewable chemicals. Change the world technology, but it will take a long time and a significant amount of capital to get to market. They are making a great run at the opportunity with large partnerships in Chile, Norway, and with DuPont in the US. So, I (8 comments)
Tech Update October 24, 2011: Hiring Pivotal Labs - 10/24/11 02:07 AM
Happy Monday Rainers, I wanted to post a quick technology update. It's been a bit more than six months since I came on as CEO. As I told the group in April and May, my first priority for ActiveRain has been and continues to be improving the underlying technology platform of ActiveRain. We continue to invest a lot of time and money into stabilizing ActiveRain. I hope you have seen improvements over the last six months versus where ActiveRain had been six months or a year ago. Though we have made a lot of improvements, there continue to be some challenges. As we (79 comments)
Response from Bank of America CEO about Online Upgrade - 10/19/11 10:21 PM
Hi Everyone, CAVEAT: One of my great pet peeves about ActiveRain is when a member of ActiveRain uses ActiveRain's SEO power to flame another business online rather than speaking to the business directly and trying to resolve the issue. This blog post is NOT a criticism of Bank of America. This blog post is actually a recognition of customer responsiveness from the CEO of Bank of America Brian Moynihan. Below is an email I sent to the CEO of Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan regarding the upgrade of the online banking services. As many people know, Bank of America (11 comments)

Thoughts on Steve Jobs from a Young PC-Loving CEO The world is filled with memorials to Steve Jobs tonight. I am not a Mac user, though I love my iPhone and there are probably 10 Apple devices in our house now. I am not an Apple fanatic, like many people that I work with and admire. Much of the coverage on Steve Jobs tonight is focused on the technology - the Mac, the iPod, the iPhone, the iPad, iTunes, and the App Store. I just wanted to thank Steve Jobs for his inspiration as a businessman and an entrepreneur, especially (57 comments)
