@cheapikeabot Thank you so much for the feedback! That means a lot! You got my style :) At the time I was really having a hard time believing it would be a viable product that people would really use all the time, which is what you saw written all over my face :) but after seeing that Piper Jaffray study, I have come around a bit, which is why I decided to promote the video now versus in early march.

@ao I appreciate your feedback but we have our own styles. I do have interviews on pandodaily.com where it's just question then answer then question then answer then question then answer so I'm certain there are videos I've done which will satisfy the style you prefer. But in this case it was a live interview where I was learning about his product for the first time as we went along as he had literally just launched the product moments before on the LAUNCH stage. So, I treated it as if it was just he and I chit chatting about the product as I would with anyone I was just hanging out with. I'm sorry it doesn't meet your style requirements in this case. Itwas a conversation and in conversations we interrupt each other all the time. I think the conversation aspect of this particular one makes it more fun to watch. I hate watching interviews where it's just the guest talking talking talking. That's why I think I model myself after my boss Sarah... It's because she is constantly interrupting, clarifying, creating a conversation vs. a ping pong effect. Let's leave that effect to Povio.
@adsy_me nice use of the comment section versus sending me an email right after this saying you did this story, now do mine. I'm taking notice. I'm curious about what you mean by activate your content. Also, I'm curious about what your thoughts and others thoughts about how Facebook can help its members monetize their 'friends' or if that's even acceptable on that platform. Adsy maybe you're the one to do that with instagram pics?

@Calacanis @launch @jason Wow! Thank you Jason. I enjoyed the opportunity and look forward to doing more with you and Launch. I think it would be interesting to do a 3 months after launch set of videos on the top five that your audience most wants to hear about.

If you're wondering how Bill Tai discovered this new market... Larry Lopez, a former Silicon Valley Bank executive moved to Perth, Australia. He was approached by the head of Australia about helping to increase innovation in tech. He reached out to SVB exec Aaron Gershenberg who recruited Bill to become an Innovator in Residence. The conference in the past has even had Steve Wozniak as a speaker. So...this market is truly starting to gain some ground. Also... stay tuned over next couple of weeks...because I spoke with a professor from a tech university in melbourne who says he has a big supply of developers looking for great start-ups to work on....hint hint hint...

those in Silicon

@statspotting I agree margins are critical. From the retail standpoint, daily deals are squeezing their margins. I think daily deals are great initially as a discovery mechanism for consumers. But longterm, I believe that loyalty programs are better for margins. Thoughts anyone?

As an independent raising campaign funds...here are couple of things I learned through this process is: Make sure to choose a picture carefully. A lot of people are drawn to the picture before the words. Make sure you not only talk about what you're raising money for, but also give potential backers a clear picture of exactly how you plan to deliver on what you promised.

@jenniferkbl Obviously not because the CEO as seen below agrees with my assessment of the app. But I agree with you that the app will NOT work for everyone. There still needs to be drive and motivation to make or break any habit and it's not the same for everyone. And I do agree with you that it may not be making or breaking habits...but making them stick is probably the bigger issue. I agree with you that I should've addressed that more in my article. As I mentioned in a comment above, a near-death experience helped my mom to break the habit of eating fried foods.... but just for a few months... that positive behavior of eating healthy foods only stuck till she started feeling better! If you see any articles on getting behaviors to stick, please email them to me at kym at pandodaily dot com because I would love to read them
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Tim Ferriss attempts to do what hundreds of years of psychological research couldn’t
@bradhill I will disagree with you on the hundred years of research, because if someone had a solution that would help the masses make or break habits, I don't think we would have an obesity problem here in the U.S. I think a lot of the articles I've read are well-intentioned, I think these apps I mentioned are well-intentioned, but nothing gets most people to do or not do something. Everyone is driven differently. That's what Tim is trying to get to the bottom of. He wants to see what will get most people to do or not do something. That's where I'm a little skeptical. Making and breaking habits I believe takes a conscious shift. And that happens for people at different times, motivated by different factors. I hope it's possible to find a blanket solution. But at this point I haven't seen it. I'm curious about research that can truly impact the majority, if you have some you wouldn't mind emailing me at kym at pandodaily dot com. I thank you so much for the book above. I'm definitely going to download it. I know in trying to get my mom to even stick with a medical diet is tough. I can't get her out of the bad habit of eating her fried foods. It's a habit only a near-death experience was able to break...for at least a little while.
@EmilZ I never said he was wrong. I'm sorry I didn't provide the insight YOU were looking for. If you have some insight to share on this topic and how people create good habits and break bad ones, I think that's a better use of this comment space versus criticizing a well-intentioned article on someone I think very highly of.
