Before the Climb: Cisco Engineer Takes Us with Him to Mt Everest

In early May, Cisco engineer, Brian Dickinson will be at the base camp on Mt Everest just hours before his ascent. We plan to be there with him.

Before he leaves the States, he will talk with us while he’s still at sea level – from his home – so we can learn more about what is motivating his incredible drive.

Meet Brian via WebEx this Thursday! Register now!

Brian is on a mission to climb The Seven Summits, to take toys to orphanages in the countries he visits and raise money for AIDS Research. His personal journey has become an amazing global adventure that is reaching far beyond his expectations.

We will have a chance to meet Brian at sea level this Thursday. He will visit with us via WebEx to describe his journey and talk about his first three climbs. Then, on April 1, via Cisco Telepresence, Brian will conduct a science class for kids at an orphanage in Katmandu.

We are hoping the next time we’ll see Brian Read More »

CES 2011: Bob Marley’s Vision of One Love, One World

A wooden “house” is not something you may ordinarily see on the show floor at the Consumer Electronics Show, and that is only ONE of the reasons that crowds lined up to hear about the MARLEY audio electronics line.

The MARLEY audio electronics line is designed using eco-friendly and recycled material. There are three different lines – Jammin’, Freedom, and Destiny. The booth contained dozens of prototypes for exhibitors to check out and including earbuds, headphones, docking stations, speakers and boom boxes ranging from $29.99 to $499.99.

Check out this exclusive interview I did with Bob Marley’s grandson from the show floor!
