Podcast #4: Technology Investing for the Future

“If [a stock] don’t go up, don’t buy it.”–Will Rogers

“The market will continue to fluctuate.”–Milton Fisher

 

We’d all like the perfect crystal ball to tell us where the financial markets are headed.  Sadly, no such thing exists.  But there is a tool that can be used to help evaluate specific technologies, relative to their stage of development.  In episode 4 of Seeking Delphi, I speak to professional futurist and financial manager Jim Lee about the Gartner Hype Cycle and how it might be used make better technology investing decisions.  To listen, click on the audio file below or the embedded YouTube link below that.    You can also subscribe on iTunes or YouTube.

Podcast Episode 3: Whatever Happened to Fuel Cells?

“I believe fuel cells could end the 100-year reign of the internal combustion engine.” –William Clay Ford

Hydrogen fuel cells have long been touted as a possible replacement for the internal combustion engine.  But progress has been slow,  and the emergence of this technology seems not much closer than it was 20 years ago.   In episode #3 of Seeking Delphi, I explore the world of Hydrogen Fuel Cells with William Smith, the CEO of Infinity Fuel Cell and Hydrogen, Inc.  The oil companies may not want you to hear this, but this technology is not dead yet.   Links to Infinity’s web site and this weeks news stories are below.  Seeking Delphi is now available on iTunes. Now also on YouTube.
