Fri, Jan 16th 2015 11:20a   Bruce Elgort
Bruce Elgort:Thanks Mitch Cohen for sharing this great app with me. Originally posted on TechCrunch: Be My Eyes, a new Danish non-profit ‘startup’, has taken a commodity technology, the humble video call, and, by combining it with a community of sighted volunteers, used it as the basis for an iOS app that lets you help a visually-impaired person ‘see’ through their phone’s video camera. Specifically, Be My Eyes — which recently caught the attention of Twitter and Square founder Jack

Mon, Dec 15th 2014 8:45p   Bruce Elgort
Here’s a free, hour-long talk that Derek Featherstone recently delivered at the CSS Developer Conference in New Orleans.

Mon, Dec 15th 2014 11:33a   Bruce Elgort
The London Developer Co-Op has created a tool named “Via” that every single company running IBM’s Lotus Notes and IBM’s Lotus Domino need to look at.

Take it from me, this is the one and only tool that you can use to “modernize” your Notes and Domino data – period. Each and every day I am hearing from colleagues, customers and community me
