Giving up on IM and going to quasi-real-time communications

on October 4, 2010

Here’s one of the interviews I shot last week at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference reporting for Yammer.

Below is a quick convo I had with my friend Dave Mathews, creator of the proximity based technology NeuAer, and also inventor of one of PCWorld’s worst 25 technology inventions of all time, the CueCat. I chatted with Dave about his desire to move away from real-time communications to quasi-real-time communications and also discussed his many technology patents and how the failure of the CueCat is actually now a success as a barcode scanner in your mobile phone. Did he make any money from his 60 patents? As Mathews says, “All my patents were worthwhile, but they’re all now worthless.”

Most are worthless, David. :) Thanks for bringing great energy, questions and a camera to the events that I catch up with you at!
