Welcome aboard, please enjoy all the muck that’s fit to rake in today’s splendid Hound-Up.
Investment forums all over the world today, but all in NYC at the same time. For entrepreneurial opportunities across the globe, the Big Apple would be a good place to start this week. There you’ll find the India Investment Summit, Africa Investment Summit, Middle East Investment Summit and Russia Investment Summit.
It wouldn’t be a day of the week without another venture to the clouds. So that’s where the Cincinnati Cloud Intelligence Conference will take its attendees as they endeavour to learn how the cloud can help their businesses.
Each week brings more worldwide efforts to analyze, aggregate and understand the value of social media data. Today, London takes on the challenge with Social Media Results Conference: Engage. Communicate. Measure. Profit.
In N’Orleans they don’t just eat their food and drink their wine, they f%&!in experience it and now it’s your opportunity to join in, at the New Orleans Food & Wine Experience. This runs through Saturday, so you’ve still got plenty of time to join the feasting.
The Spark & Hustle New York Conference For Current & Aspiring Entrepreneurs may have a bit of a clunky name, but it’s got a noble purpose. This is an event geared towards women who are struggling with an unfair system and seek the empowerment and guidance to bring out their inner entrepreneurs, or give a boost to the current ones.
Expo Marketing 101 gives another valuable opportunity for vendors of all types to learn how to capitalize on that three seconds of attention you grab when someone walks by your booth. Here they intend to divulge the secrets that separate a bustling booth from a sad, lonely one.
Aaaand Google conquers yet another market. Much to my surprise, Chrome has become the number one browser, having shown a steady increase while #1 IE has shown a steady decline.
SpaceX has launched the Dragon capsule into orbit. That sentence sounds like a cross between science fiction and fantasy. I was quick to jump to the conclusion that astronauts and Jurassic Park scientists had teamed up to create a race of super dragons capable of living in space. Sadly, that is not quite the case. Although there is no news of Space Dragons to report, it’s still pretty interesting that a commercial spaceship is on it’s way to docking with the international space station.
If anyone can explain this very brief article on quantum entanglement to me, you’ll have my gratitude. Still don’t understand how we’re going to have quantum computers in the near future with all this vague, weird science.
