“Nanoemulsion” gels offer new way to deliver drugs through the skin

MIT chemical engineers have devised a new way to create very tiny droplets of one liquid suspended within another liquid, known as nanoemulsions. Such emulsions are similar to the mixture that forms when you shake an oil-and-vinegar salad dressing, but with much smaller droplets. Their tiny size allows them to remain stable for relatively long […]

10 Questions I Hope I Don’t Get Asked During My Product Hunt AMA

I’m doing an “Ask Me Anything’ (AMA) session on Product Hunt tomorrow (Tuesday, Feb 23rd, 2016 at 10 am PST, 1pm EST).   Would love for you to sign-up early, because I’m insecure, egotistical and I want to impress Ryan Hoover.  Would love for a decent number of people to sign-up.  Or an indecent number […]

A chemical approach to imaging cells from the inside

The following press release was issued today by the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. A team of researchers at the McGovern Institute and Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard has developed a new technique for mapping cells. The approach, called DNA microscopy, shows how biomolecules such as DNA and RNA are organized in cells […]

Secret To SaaS Success: Recognize That You’re Not Selling Software

I’ve been working in the software industry for over 25 years. Pretty much my entire professional career (if you don’t count that stint as a night clerk at Red Roof Inn). Back in the late 1900s, when you sold software, you sold software. What your company produced was a large set of properly aligned bits […]

Focals by North Review: The future is (almost) here

The concept of an IRL heads-up display has been a part of science fiction since basically the beginning. Big players have tried their hand at it with less than stellar results — most notably Google with Glass, and more recently Intel’s Vaunt. But North may have cracked the nut on smart glasses with Focals. They […]

How to Set a Business Growth Goal (And Why You Should Have One)

  Within the business world—and life in general—planning isn’t exactly a sexy topic. It’s not something we look forward to, like increasing conversion rates or boosting traffic. It’s boring. But it’s important. How do you plan for the growth of your business? How do you plan to bring in more revenue? An important step in […]

Spotting objects amid clutter

A new MIT-developed technique enables robots to quickly identify objects hidden in a three-dimensional cloud of data, reminiscent of how some people can make sense of a densely patterned “Magic Eye” image if they observe it in just the right way. Robots typically “see” their environment through sensors that collect and translate a visual scene […]
