In this slidecast, Patrick Ambron from BrandYourself describes how the company lets you control your own Google results.
Like any good company, BrandYourself started as a problem that turned into a mission we just couldn’t ignore. We hated the fact that reputation firms purposely mystified the Search Engine Optimization process, making their customers feel trapped. We hated that these firms overcharged customers for something they could easily do themselves if they simply had a platform that educated and empowered them to do so.
So we made it our mission to create a Do-It-Yourself platform that makes it easy for anyone to take control of their own search results without any price or technical barrier. We’ve been working around the clock for over a year putting together the team, expertise and building the platform you can use for free today.
I tried out the BrandYourself process and I found it to be very easy to set up. If you have a stake in what people see when they Google your name, I highly recommend you get on the site and sign up.

MongoDB is an open source, document-oriented database designed with both scalability and developer agility in mind. Instead of storing your data in tables and rows as you would with a relational database, in MongoDB you store JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas. The goal of MongoDB is to bridge the gap between key-value stores (which are fast and scalable) and relational databases (which have rich functionality).
In this slidecast, Narges Bani Asadi from a new Startup called Bina presents: Bina – Accelerating Data-Driven Healthcare.
In 2008, a renowned team of researchers at Stanford and UC Berkeley came together to solve a critical problem for cancer researchers who were severely constrained by their existing computing capabilities for large-scale data analysis. Through this work they created a new approach to the integrated co-development of statistical algorithms, software and hardware for high performance data analysis. The result was a dramatic improvement in the accuracy, computational efficiency and cost of data analysis. The team founded Bina Technologies in 2010 to bring this approach to market.”
