My blogging has been slow as of late as I’ve been particularly busy with clients, a new web asset being developed for our business and the launch of Minnov8.
Minnov8 was started to focus on technology innovation in the State of Minnesota, the Land of 10,000 Lakes (albeit most of which are frozen right now…but it’s gorgeous in the summer!).
Minnov8 began as an idea in late 2007 when several Minnesota geeks realized that we shared a passion and a realization that we were living in a time of the greatest shift in communication and connection—affecting both humans and machines—than we were ever going to experience again in our lifetimes.
As we talked about what was going on in Minnesota, we realized there was something missing: although there was a tremendous amount of Internet and Web-centric development, interest, passion and excitement right here in Minnesota, there wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t any single, online spot to read about what was happening right here in our State.
So we started one.
A vision emerged of an online venue where we (and, at some point, other trusted contributors) could file reports, podcast and video interviews, screencasts and other high value content that would focus on Minnesota technology innovation and provide a news and information showcase surrounding Internet-as-a-platform, application innovation on the Web, and other technology happenings we think will be worthy of coverage.
So stop on by Minnov8, relax and enjoy the trip as we paddle on and provide you with stories, profiles, news and information about the Internet and Web shifts occurring and how Minnesotans are innovating in this time of accelerating change.

Connecting the Dots Podcast
Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows.
