INFORMATION IS VERY EASY TO OBTAIN BUT VERY DIFFICULT TO MANAGE.


It is difficult to manage the volume of information. It is difficult to manage the quality of information. It is difficult to manage the fragmented flow of information.

The above all stem from the nature of the Internet; a venue where anyone can post anything.  Pretty much everyone is posting for clicks and everything can be found by a search engine whether good, bad or ugly.

The paradigm of free information has reduced the amount of real digging or insight provided by traditional publications.  This model has also brought about propagation of information, regardless of whether it is of high or low quality, to the point where it enters the realm of “if you say it enough it is true”.  At the end of the day information is losing its value.

 

WHAT ABOUT TECHNOLOGY? IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN AND ALWAYS WILL BE A PART OF SOCIETY. It’s only constant though is its continual evolution.


Technology adds a new dimension because, well, there is now a technical component. One should have some understanding of the field, the background and the context of any information they are digesting. Decisions around technology should not be about gambling they should be about understanding, because it is understandable. This is where ned enters the picture.

THE FLAGSHIP ned 1.0 PUBLICATION IS DIRECTED TOWARDS THREE PRIMARY MARKETS


Financial

Whether it is “ball parking” a technology, seeing who or what else is in the eco-system, or looking in depth at what differentiates a technology, ned goes beyond the corporate pitch.

Legal

If you are drafting or licensing a patent your client can be better served when you have a better grasp of technology, allowing you to look forward, seeing how technology is evolving.

management

An understanding of your client’s business is at the heart of management consulting. If it is a technology based company you have to get a grip on the technology. ned can help you get that grip.

24Aug15 – There are days like today where the markets seem to forget that stocks are individual stories.  They will have their own technologies, markets, advantages, disadvantages and management.  Once the dust settles, the above will still hold.

14Aug15 - Another day and there is another poor article around a patent.  This time it is from Register Hardware.  Without going beyond what is written it would appear this is pulled from the Background and Detailed Description.  The Claims will actually provide insight into what Apple wants to patent. 

05Aug15 - There was chatter yesterday around Airbus’s so-called Mach 4.5 patent.  It is actually titled “Ultra-rapid air vehicle and related method for aerial locomotion”.  In the end it presents a classic example of how, even legal tweeters, propel patent myths and generalities.  It is important to understand what we learn from the patent (US9,079,661) and what is protected.

29Jul15 – Yesterday was quite the day in the technology world.  Intel and Micron made quite the stir with their memory announcement.  It is always entertaining to see the mainstream financial press swallow the marketing message whole. 

28Jul15 - There was some chatter about “Wireless Devices with Touch Sensors and Solar Cells” a few days ago.  This US patent application (US2015/0199062) to Apple is of interest to our ongoing look at Apple’s foray into solar technologies. 

A really poor article In Forbes Tech the other day around Boeing patent US9,068,562 drove home the fact that not everyone writing about technology or patents understands them.
