A Startup World In An Infographic (#)
I bought myself a Withings Pulse which, I suppose, initiate my first steps into the Quantify Self movement (wikipedia). I received the device earlier this week and I would not draw a conclusion too fast as I am still in the “honey moon” period but it has been quite pleasant so far to discover the capabilities of the device, with a few caveats.
While unboxing was pleasant and setting up the device was smooth I bump into some problems when trying to charge the device. The USB cable was very hard to insert in the device and when eventually charged it was even harder to remove it to the point that I broke it. Luckily they are using a standard USB charging cable which means I can use the charging cable from my Samsung S4.
I opened a case on their website but I have not heard anything yet.
Upgrading the device software through Bluetooth was not that smooth as it has hung for a while until I stopped it and tried again a few times. Did it again a few times to finally get it working, I think.
The Android app is really nice, very user friendly and easy to use.

I did not realize one can “quit the internet”… it must feel good. really. but is it doable?

Innovation is the responsability of every executive and it begins with a conscious search for opportunities.
Innovation is the specific function of entrepreneurship, whether in an existing business, a public service institution, or a new venture started by a lone individual. It is the means by which the entrepreneur either creates new wealth-producing resources or endows existing resources with enhanced potential for creating wealth.
Most innovations result from a conscious, purposeful search for innovation opportunities, which are found in only a few situations.
Pourquoi ce billet? Ma fibre citoyenne se réveille et je commence à m’intéresser sérieusement à l’organisation de nos institutions fédérales… ce sont là quelques notes que je saurai où et comment retrouver le moment venu :-)
