At the Riya Launch Party

11/18/05 | by JAdP | Categories: Computers and Internet, Photos

We saw plenty of these shirts tonight. Clarise and I told Tara that we would take daytime TheraFlu, and make the Riya, launch party, and so we did. Many thanks to Tara for adding us to the list.

It was great fun, and I'm sure that Tara gave a great demo - except we couldn't see it or hear it. There were that many people there.

But on Monday, the next phase of Riya's alpha testing launches, with many new features and many new testers, going from 25 users in the first phase to 1000 in the next phase, out of the 5000 requests Ojos received. And as Munjal said, all due to the power of the blogosphere.

We had a great time. We got to catch up with Dan Gillmor, and that's always good.

And we got to meet some interesting people. We really want to thank Andrea, who came over to find out what the "short people" were doing. :p She introduced us to Allie and Ethan. Allie does marketing for the company Ethan started: Zvents. I first read about Zvents on SiliconBeat when they launched at Web2.0

Thanks to Munjal and Mike. It was a great party.

Congratulations again to the entire Ojos crew.

And about all those Google rumours. Mike confirmed that it was true, and then admitted that he was lying through his teeth. They weren't confirmed, denied or ignored, just the butt of a joke. &#59;)

I'm Joseph A. di Paolantonio and this blog has two main foci: my interest in food, and my interest in the future. This provides a look into my personal life, and is separate from my consulting work…though there will be overlap. I am an independent researcher, working as a strategic consultant and I'm an executive with over 20 years of commercial experience with a technical interest in the intersection of Internet of Things, with advanced data management and analysis methods. I view data science as a team activity, and I feel that the IoT must be viewed as a system. I am leveraging my past activities to understand the adoption and impact of the IoT; first, as a system engineer in aerospace, where I developed Bayesian risk assessment methods for systems within the Space Transportation System (including the Space Shuttle), Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer, Gravity Probe B, and many more, and second, as a enterprise data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics professional. Between my aerospace and IT careers, I indulged my hobby of cooking by starting a food company, Montara Magic, centered around my chocolate sauces. My education combined chemistry, mathematics and philosophy. I performed research into molten salt fuel cells in graduate school, and in photovoltaic materials for a short time in industry. The lure of bringing the human race into space was strong, and when I was offered the chance to combine my chemistry and mathematics skills to develop new risk assessment and system engineering methods for space launch and propulsion systems – I couldn't resist. I perform independent research and strategic consulting to bring value from the Internet of Things, Sensor Analytics Ecosystems and data science teams.I am a caregiver, a lover of science fiction and speculative fantasy, and my passion to learn has led me to a pilot's license, an assistant instructor in SCUBA, nordic and alpine skiing, sea kayaking, and reading everything I can, in as many topics as I can.
