http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/flight-training-adventure here is the correct link. Sorry I will fix in a bit
@clairedwillett no, not an ad. Just the angle I took which was simply to make the comparison to Apple. It wasn't meant to be an in-depth look at the pros and cons of the company. I just enjoyed the irony of the similarities between the two company retail outlets. Probably the amazingness of my videographer/editor, who's a perfectionist with these videos, also created more of a commercial feeling. It was not my intention.

@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...
9 months ago on Silicon Valley finds a new crop of tech talent in Australia
Bill Taibelieves that start up talent is
blossoming in Australia and that investors world wide including
those in Silicon
Valley need to pay close attention, as world
class tech based companies are starting to emergefrom the continent. Many companies in Silicon
Valley use 99Designs, and everybody uses Google Maps, developed in Sydney. And software firm
Atlassian is on the road to what could be a billion dollar IPO. And when Google
shut down Google Wave, a real-time messaging platform, based in Australia, its
spread like pollen to catalyze dozens of new projects, including the one which won

@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.
