Technology Life Cycles and Diffusion
An excellent video about Technology life from my current Stanford course. Wait until 11:00 its getting better 🙂
Another adventure… yes yes.
I participate in the Technology Entrepreneurship Part 1 MOOC course from Stanford University. They use the NovoEd platform which is pretty good from my point of view. I finished yesterday my first Assignment where you had to choose a local successful startup and write something about it.
Although the Greek market is small, it has a small number of successful startups like Bugsense, ParkAround, Taxibeat and many more! For example a major success story was released earlier this week (16/09) where Splunk announced agreement to acquire BugSense. Nevertheless I chose to write about Pinnatta and the reason of their success. I believe they are closest to the course objective, they are in the midst of their scaling up, they raised a recent major funding and they are cool 🙂

Some time ago – before starting this blog – I started the “Startup Engineering” Coursera MOOC course. It can be found at https://class.coursera.org/startup-001/class/index .
It is a really interesting “experiment” from Stanford University. It derives from an actual Stanford class related to startups and provides a fast-paced introduction to key tools and techniques:
Main target of the course is to create an online crowdfunding app from zero to an actual app!
