for getting the ball rolling on how to approach the Hype Cycle. I met Josh early summer 2007 at Buck’s of Woodside (famed and quirky Silicon Valley hangout for venture capitalists and digerati) to discuss his ideas for influencing the Hype Cycle. Josh’s ideas were quite provocative and no doubt he can see a bit of their DNA in this piece of SageContent TM . I have not seen how Josh evolved his ideas into best practices, but perhaps he will post them on the H&K ARcade AR blog sometime in the near future. As we mentioned in Thinking about Gartner’s Hype Cycle , the Hype Cycle is the most read piece of Gartner ...
on the site where it will be used; Bloom Energy representatives assert that it is at least as efficient as a traditional large-scale coal power station. 2 3 According to the company, a single cell (one 100mm × 100mm metal alloy plate between two ceramic layers) generates 25 watts. 4 The Bloom Energy Server uses thin white ceramic plates (100mm × 100mm) 5 which are claimed to be made from "beach sand" but are in fact scandia stabilized zirconia ScSZ . Each ceramic plate is coated with a green Nickel oxide -based ink on one side (anode) and another black (probably Lanthanum strontium manganite ) ink on the other side ...

Why China Won't Rule Tech. : China Law Blog : China Law for Business
Ray's post is rash, premature, and inaccurate. I set out Ray's five reasons in bold below and then I analyze them in normal font.    1. China's leadership understands engineering. In China, eight of the nine members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau, including the Chinese president, Hu Jintao, have engineering degrees; one has a degree in geology. Of the 15 U.S. cabinet members, six have law degrees. Only one cabinet member has a hard-science degree -- Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, who won the Nobel Prize in physics in 1997, has a doctorate in physics. President Barack Obama and ... market research, surveys and trends

As Financing Declines, the Future of Clean-Tech Start-Ups Is ...
OVER the past few years, as venture capitalists poured money into solar companies and green technology start-ups, the mood in Silicon Valley resembled the sunny days of the dot-com boom in the late 1990s. All that changed this winter. Now, venture capitalists are backing off, leaving some clean-tech entrepreneurs wondering whether the next few years will feel more like the dreary days following the dot-com bust. During the first quarter of 2009, investment in green technologies by venture capitalists, who drive a disproportionate amount of financing in new technologies, shriveled. In the first quarter of this year, they invested ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
The Solar Hype Cycle: Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me | Xconomy
I find it odd that you claim that several of these photovoltaic manufacturers are out-producing their demands when almost all of the major companies have the exact opposite scenario occuring. Cush Interesting perspective/reality on PV…as an unemployed person trying to enter the renewable energy field, it’s a bit disheartening. I do agree with Chris, some companies are making money and I do hope to be employed by a solar company soon. And any less dependence on oil and coal is a good thing, right? Regarding the production of PV, the irony is amazing and troubling. You’d think that Suntech would get a grip. Pam ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Adam Morrison works out for several NBA teams
Over the last couple of days, Morrison has worked out for several NBA teams, doing all he can to secure a job for next season. He worked out in Las Vegas for the Clippers, Chicago Bulls, Washington Wizards, Cleveland Cavaliers, Boston Celtics and San Antonio Spurs. Morrison, drafted third overall in the 2006 draft by the Charlotte Bobcats, looked as if he might have a solid NBA career, but he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in 2007 and hasn't been the same since. He was traded to the Lakers in February 2009 but never was much of a factor during his time with the team. market trends, news research and surveys resources
You Can't Love Tesla And Ignore Energy Storage
The second quarter was brutal for publicly traded energy storage companies which saw their stock prices fall by an average of 24.1% after a first quarter drubbing of 16.2%. Frankly I'm astonished that investors are chasing a battery-powered IPO like Tesla Motors ( TSLA ) and ignoring the energy storage technologies that will make EVs possible, and perhaps cost-effective, while making wind, solar and other renewable energy sources stable. At times like these I need to remind myself that energy storage is the beating heart of cleantech and take comfort in the fact that while Goldman Sachs began covering advanced batteries ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Have you used a new washer that uses STEAM to clean the clothes ...
My 20-year-old Maytag is biting the dust. My husband and I have started looking around for a new energy efficient front loader and are going through sticker shock. I kind of like the idea of using steam to wash clothes, but my husband questions the extra cost. So I am wondering at how well or how much better a steam washer will clean the laundry. I remember that the Chinese laundries used steam to wash the clothes and linens in the old days. It seems to me that the laundry would be sanitized without using bleach. I even read somewhere that steam washing doesn't need detergent. Can you tell me your experiences using ...

But I dont...I am good at starting businesses from an administrative standpoint (state filings, accounting, technical setup, websites, emails etc), but don't have actionable ideas with a lump sum of money. I have considered buying established business (searching places like bizbuysell) as well as online businesses through flippa.com, but have a problem with the real valuation of a company.
