I am working on some concepts of connecting a:
- Cola Bubble (which resides inside the Cola Messaging platform – and thus is accessed as “part of a conversation”)
- to an IoT Cloud platform called “Electric Imp“
- to a breakout box – which would have MIDI, CV, Triggers and Gates and even ‘samples’
- to a Serge Synthesizer
- to a couple of TV screens – one displaying the iPhone (which we’re having the Cola conversation with) and the other screen displaying imagery (video, photos, websites) coming off of a laptop (or 2nd iPhone)
Yes – these are all social media channels.
Yes I have been blogging – since the beginning. My original blog can be found at: Marc.Blogs.it. There are also archives that go – all the way back, but the links are broken. Yes I’ll fix that – one day.
I’m turning 60 on Jan. 13th, 2017. I was born the day that Humphrey Bogart died.
I’m going to put on a show for my birthday which will be the first layer of an inter-disciplinary interactive offering.
The goal is to present:
- and new forms of Interactivity
- across multiple platforms:
Wish me luck. We’ll be streaming it live and recording that live show. Words, Links and live screens will be recorded along with the show – as the first layer.
We will then add interactivity on top of that Content – in post-production. Eventually that will happen – in real-time.
- Serge synthesizers
- Poetry by Todd Siegel
- the latest news
- and some product demos
all have in common?
Come to the show – to find out!
Welcome to my new blog – Marc.Canter.com
Dan Farber at ZDNet did a video Interview of me
I’ve given a LOT of Speeches over the years, worked on open standards efforts and helped create all sorts of products and companies.
I even help others!
January 2016 – thought about reviving the MediaBar. That led me to start working on a Slack Bot.
February-April 2016 – was asked to resuscitate the “Digital City” project and recast it as “Skills training for Health and Wellness”. We worked on a Pilot for Solano County, CA
May 2016 – started thinking about ChatBots seriously
June-July 2016 – Synthetic Personality time……
Kind of bugged my Wikipedia page is so gamed. They call me a “blogger” (barely any mention of what I do) and they’re fixated on my grandfather. I wonder why.
I’ve talked about Persona Editors – which is a two-way on-line outliner.
I worked on a “Digital City” project in Cleveland, Tampa, Lafayette, LA, Jamaica and Kansas City.
So I commuted between Charlotte, NC and SF/Los Gatos – for 11 months – while Interface matured, stabilized and pivoted.
Interface eventually became Cola. David Temkin is the CEO of Cola
Check out Cola Messenger in the Apple iOS App Store (Android coming soon)
Cola now has an SDK for those who wish to build plug-in Bubbles. They’re having their first Bubble Hackathon on Aug. 16th
I’m proud to let all of you know about a new company – which I’ve co-founded with a BUNCH of killer dues and one dudess.
Its called Interface – here we are:
Let the people decide – that’s what I say!
I’m on a panel tonight at the Mac 30th event – at the Flint Center in Cupertino tonight.
Help me decide which shirt I should wear?
Back in Cali – left behind 8 degree weather in Cleveland.
Looked up and saw this Billboard today
Open for Business Hours – hanging at the Creamery again – over next two weeks.
