  • Color CEO: The Tech Justifies the $41 Million

It made a big splash for a number of reasons, not the least of which being its $41 million prelaunch funding. It has all-star founders who have a impressive track records. It launched days after, instead of before, uber tech conference SXSW. Unfortunately for the company, the app can offer a terrible experience for first-time users and appear absolutely useless to those outside of a densely packed, techie mecca like San Francisco or New York.Let’s put all that aside for a moment, however, and look at how Color works, what it does, and why it could redefine mobile, location, and online social interaction. We took some time to talk with Color CEO Bill Nguyen this afternoon and asked him about the tech behind the most talked about app this side of SXSW and here’s what he had to say.Color: Much More Than PhotosColor hit both the iTunes App Store and Android Marketplace last night, bringing with it the promise of real-time, proximity based photo sharing. Using something the company calls a “multi-lens,” the app “intelligently identifies nearby smartphones, whether at a local park or at a concert, using advanced proximity algorithms” and instantly shares photos, videos, comments and likes with them. According to Nguyen, Color is built on some serious technology. The company has six patents pending and sees itself as “much more of a research company and a data mining company than a photo sharing site.” As such, Nguyen explains that Color can ingest and analyze four times the amount of data than Google did in its early days. This, not a tech “bubble” or an early exit, justifies the $41 million investment.“We have no interest whatsoever in being acquired,” said Nguyen. “This is purely what we need to operate. There are real data needs and real capital costs.”What does this tech offer? Among other things, a new way of looking at location and proximity that, while Nguyen wouldn’t speculate, could be used in any number of ways including creating a new way of online social interaction.Research & Data Mining, You Say?The pictures and videos you take using Color are much more than just that. They’re a piece of sharable media around which Color can collect and retain a number of different data points. When you take a picture or video, Color gathers a variety of information. It collects sound levels, Bluetooth readings, light readings, antenna strength, the time – even the direction you’re pointing your phone – and more and uses it all to determine your proximity to other users. This leaves an obvious question – why not use GPS? This is where the tech we’ve been talking about comes in.“Lots of people are trying to create location-based services and using GPS,” said Nguyen. “The problem with GPS is that it doesn’t work.”Color does things differently by collecting these various data points from the phone’s sensors and then looking for proximity by looking for identical inaccuracies.“When you open the camera, that’s our big moment,” explained Nguyen. “The information we capture in a very short window is probably not that accurate, but when you compare it to lots of other people and it’s identically inaccurate, they’re probably in the same place.”The problem, of course, isn’t how to gather the data, but how to benchmark it, compare it, and accurately determine location and proximity. That’s where Color’s patent-pending technology comes in, which Nguyen credits DJ Patil, former chief scientist with LinkedIn, with creating. If you’ve used many GPS-dependent apps, then you know the battery-draining and inaccurate qualities of modern location. Color offers a way to determine location and proximity in such a non-battery draining, accurate manner that an impromptu and “elastic” social graph can be created from the data, without once ever having to purposefully check in. The ‘Elastic’ Social GraphSo, is color just another social photo sharing app? No. There are no friend designations in the app.Instead, your friends are people whose paths your own path intersects with, both in location, time and interaction. The more you interact with someone, the more persistent that connection becomes. Over time, it fades away. Ngyuen calls it the “elastic” social graph and he said it’s just one of several other ideas the company is working on patenting.“That’s the part I’ve never gotten about an online social network – to say that someone is your ‘friend.’ It’s rather kind of random. Shouldn’t relationships based on technology work the exact same as real life relationships?” asked Nguyen.In the world of Facebook, once someone is your friend, they’re your friend until you return and re-evaluate that relationship, regardless of whether or not you’ve ever spoken to them again. In reality, the relationship could have fizzled long ago, yet it’s still a bond as good as any. With Color’s “elastic” social graph, these ties can fade and disappear. Color’s ability to accurately determine location and user proximity is what makes this sort of social graph – an implied, impermanent and elastic social graph – even possible.Isn’t It All Just Bubble-Induced Hype?I’m going to go out on a limb here and say “no.” Color may have offered a terrible first impression for folks out in the boonies with nobody nearby, but it says it’s fixing that. It may have shot itself in the foot in terms of rising to the top of the App Store and raking in the new users. It may have even confused and annoyed the early adopter set with its puzzle-esque and sometimes serpentine design, but if it can really do what it proposes – change the way our social graph works by way of accurate location and proximity data – then none of that may matter. Oh, and before you ask, Nguyen said they do have a monetization plan. It hinges on advertising and one simple fact.“Our data is so accurate that we know where you are,” said Nguyen.last_img read more

  • The Power In Silence

    first_imgThere is power in silence.When you feel uncomfortable, you may continue talking when it no longer serves you.Continuing to speak can give the impression that you are not confident in what you are saying. Worse, it can prevent your dream client from processing a question or statement for themselves because you are answering it for them (or because you are just making noise).PauseThere is power in the pause.A pause creates space. Your dream client can use that space to process your well-placed question and think through the answer for themselves. This is important when you are asking powerful questions. It’s also important when your question is a question that they haven’t yet answered for themselves.You might ask the question, “You’ve shared three big areas that you believe need improvement. Which of these areas is compelling enough for you to do something different to improve your results?” If you want to know how to compel your prospects to change, find out what is already compelling them.You might assume that you are supposed to be solving all three problems, and maybe you will. By pausing, you create the space for your prospect to process the question and decide what is important enough to pursue.Time to ProcessOne area where it’s easy to make assumptions and speak for your client is when you are helping them identify risks and resolve concerns. Because we have proof providers, we assume that what we have is what the client wants. A question and a pause can be a more effective choice.You might say, “What concerns do you still need me to address for you now?” No matter what the answer is, ask a powerful question and pause. Say, “How can I help you feel confident about that issue and what would you need to see from me?” Maybe they want references. Or they might be more confident with a site visit, or simply meeting and vetting the team that will handle their business.There is no reason to guess what you prospective client needs from you when you can ask them and pause long enough for them to think through their answer.More SpaceIf you provide the person you are speaking with more space, they will fill it with what’s important to them.Being a great communicator has much more to do with the quality of your listening than it does your ability to speak.

  • James Rodriguez: World Cup’s leading goal scorer going home!

    first_imgColombia’s James Rodriguez walks off the field in tears after his team’s 2-1 loss to Brazil Full of tears and inconsolable, the World Cup’s leading scorer is going home.Statistical Highlights | Match Photos James Rodriguez put Colombia back into the match against Brazil by scoring a late penalty Friday, but it wasn’t enough. The playmaker then broke down after his team lost 2-1 in the quarterfinals.”We are sad, but we are so proud because we left everything out there,” Rodriguez said. “We gave everything to advance. Men also cry, especially when you feel like this.”Brazil defender David Luiz, whose superb free kick turned out to be the deciding goal, tried to comfort Rodriguez, putting his arm around him. The players exchanged shirts and Luiz applauded Rodriguez as he slowly walked toward the tunnel.Before he got there, Colombia coach Jose Pekerman gave him a hug.”I tried to calm him down because he deserves huge congratulations,” Pekerman said.At 22, Rodriguez had become the most feared man among Brazil fans. His six goals are two more than Brazil forward Neymar has managed and his 80th-minute penalty ignited a late surge in Fortaleza that made the home fans tense.”He is an outstanding player, a huge talent, he has ambitions,” Pekerman said. “He has tried to do his best in a hard match. This is an elimination that leaves one of the best players in the World Cup out of the tournament.”One of his goals against Uruguay in the second round has been described as among the best of the tournament, when he chested down the ball and volleyed it past the goalkeeper.advertisementWhile Rodriguez couldn’t pull off a similar moment of brilliance to equalize against Brazil, there were glimpses of his talent. In a match that saw 54 fouls between both teams and many of them committed against Rodriguez, he was still able to drive forward and at times move past defenders with ease.When Radamel Falcao was cut from Colombia’s final 23-man squad because he failed to recover from a serious knee injury, many thought the South American team would exit the tournament at the group stage. But a new Colombian star has emerged and big things will be expected of him.”He will show in the future,” Pekerman said, “that he can be one of the best.”last_img read more

  • Qarabag boss Arsenal saved Mkhitaryan

    first_imgQarabag boss Gurban Gurbanov feels that politics didn’t factor into Arsenal’s decision to leave out Henrikh Mkhitaryan for their Europa League clashThe 29-year-old midfielder has not travelled with the 21-man Arsenal squad for this evening’s Group E game against Qarabag at the Baku Olympic Stadium.The decision to leave out Mkhitaryan came due to a long-standing diplomatic conflict between his native Armenia and Azerbaijan over the Nagorno-Karabakh territory.But Gurbanov feels that’s not the case and instead suggested that Arsenal had “saved” Mkhitaryan from the 60,000 Azerbaijani fans.“I didn’t want politics to interrupt the sport but we could not do anything on this issue,” said Gurbanov, according to the Evening Standard.“But Arsenal Football Club tried to save this player but it is not a matter for us if he is coming or not.“If Henrikh Mkhitaryan would come to Azerbaijan it is not the first time, but until now a lot of Armenian sportsmen came to Azerbaijan but it is the choice of Arsenal that they didn’t send (him).Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R.
