Episode #451: Why the calendar is the next mobile operating system – with Tempo founder Raj Singh

Raj Singh started Tempo.ai out of SRI (incubators of SIRI, Summly and Tempo) with absolute intent - they didn't begin at the calendar, they ended up there based on what they wanted to achieve. Raj takes us through this journey of identifying the market opportunity, the covert beta test (in Canada - under a different name), the launch, the outcome, the things he'd have done differently and where he sees the calendar as the platform concept going in the near future.

Episode #450: How NARR8 is rethinking the publishing industry and keeping everything free – with Darya Trushkina

This is the story of the success Game Insight has had and how Darya and her team plan on duplicating that success with NARR8. There is a heft here - a confidence reserved for only those that have hit on something or see something that others don't and I like it. They have audacious goals of world domination, of building incredible product every single time and of disrupting a staid and insular industry in serious peril and need of new thinking. After listening to this episode you get the sense that they are just starting to hit their stride.
