EP 27: Comcast Business & Fail Fest

July 27, 2017

This week we learn the latest offerings from Comcast Business’s Michael Wilson and learn more about what to expect at the next Fail Fest in September.

First up on the show we are joined by Michael Wilson, the Public Relations Director for Comcast-Indiana. Michael Wilson has some exciting technological announcement from Comcast recently. In the last few weeks, Comcast announced a new technology called Machine Q. Machine Q leverages the latest in sensor, network, and software technologies to gather, transmit, and create actionable intelligence. This technology is only being introduced into 15 cities across the country – with Indianapolis being one of the 15.

Listen to all the great technology that Comcast is bringing to central Indiana in this segment. To learn more about their offerings, please visit https://www.xfinity.com/

This week we are introducing a new segment in the show that we are calling “Paul Poteet – on the Edge.” Every week Paul Poteet will join Edge of Indy to talk about some of the trending topics and wacky stories he sees on social media. And of course, he will provide us with a weekly forecast!

Here are some of the stories we discussed this week:

Last up on the show is John Wechsler, the founder of Launch Fishers/Launch Indy/Launch Indiana. John is a busy guy and we were able to get a few minutes of his time to talk about the next Fail Fest. This will be the fourth year of Fail Fest and this year the event will take place at Launch Indy within Union 525 in downtown Indianapolis.

If you have never been to a Fail Fest before, it is a day-long celebration of failure. The whole event is based on the idea that we can learn and innovate from our failures. This day is full of speakers that share with everyone their biggest failures in life, business, sports or more.

Site Strategics was a part of the inaugural year of Fail Fest and we had a pretty good fail of our own that year (you can watch the video here).
