“Out in the woods
Or in the city
It’s all the same to me
When I’m drivin’ free, the world’s my home
When I’m mobile.” The Who
Cloud computing or “The Cloud” is Internet-based computing, whereby shared servers provide resources, software, and data to computers and other devices on demand, as with the electricity grid. Cloud computing is a natural evolution of the widespread adoption of virtualization, service-oriented architecture and utility computing (and certainly a phrase that many believe have hit the “Peak of Inflated Expectations” in Gartner’s Hype Cycle).
Raul Mujica is CEO of KinKast, a recently launched startup looking to “take social engagement to the next level by making it effortless, impulsive and visceral”. Raul is a former colleague of mine at Netscape and AOL. He has been building products and brands at leading companies and start-ups for more than 17 years, including Untangle, Elance, AOL, Netscape, and Hewlett Packard. Raul holds a B.S. in Finance from Georgetown University and an MBA from New York University (but I don’t hold either of those things against him). He lives in Los Altos, CA and is an avid skier, digital photographer and coach of his sons’ sports teams.
1. What is KinKast?
KinKast is the fastest and easiest way to privately share video. On the iPhone you can record a moment and share it with two taps. There’s no waiting or size limits. (Or, upload video from any camera to the website.) Your friends will receive an email with links to a private website and they won’t have to create an account. Our goal is to make video sharing easy, fast and safer.
