At SALEBARN, we are particularly interested in how people will use technology for buying, selling, bidding, appraising, analyzing opportunities provided by markets ... it is fundamentally about legitimate actors on the economic stage practice the science of success, how the best of the best tinker with the Market Based Management engine that powers their growth. Frankly, we think that the use of larger marketing, financial exchange, auction technology has been paralyzed or poisoned by the cultural and economic malaise that is paralyzing economic growth in general ... except for [or because of] innovative power grabs by fascist bureaucrats around the world, the innovation and growth of the world economy has been stopped in its tracks.
But the world is quietly building its antibodies to fascism by separating into two worlds ... one is populated by the John Galts, who have opted out and basically only participate to the degree they need to ... the other world is populated by the lowmen victims of the entitled classes. The fascists believe that they can force most of the people in the world into the world that they own, the world of lowmen victims -- the entrepreneurs of the world know that they will never bow to fascism, even if their formerly close friends, family members and professional colleagues choose to give up and think like victims.
Crowd-based data-driven mobile solutions are fundamentally about accelerating the negotiations that are implicit in the information providing by the marketplace ... the POINT of the technology is the crowd and how the crowd is accelerating the negotiation of price and features; it's not technology for technology's sake. Crowd-driven data is not just about one private market or a chain of markets OR a big auction or even a set of roughly comparable auctions.
- Search technology far beyond the uber-restrictive and arthritic crap provided by google ... Solr, Lucene, Hadoop
- Cloud-based commodity big data ... AWS, Rackspace, OpenStack
- DISTRIBUTED mobile, wireless, RF, software-defined technology ...
- Intelligence and security ... that reaches into things like cryptography, steganography, defcon, black hat hacking, IDF, Haganah, Mossad-style ... it's not just technology -- at the end of day, there are assholes who simply must die for their crimes ... that means de-clawing, neutering and even assassination of fascists and those who work for them
