What are some cool startups in Taipei?
Outlier Linguistic Solutions is a linguistics-focused software and publishing startup in Taipei just founded in July of this year. Our current project is developing a new way to learn Chinese characters based on cutting-edge academic research in Chinese palaeography etymology and pedagogy. This will culminate in a dictionary of Chinese characters for learners which will ex characters and the logical system underlying them in a simple easy-to-understand and scientifically sound format. Our goal is to take the difficult somewhat arcane ivory tower knowledge about Chinese characters and distill it into something that's accessible to the average learner of Chinese and helps them to learn and retain characters much more effectively.
Which tech startups currently (June 2011) need and deserve angel funding?
We are a new 1% self-funded tech startup (just launched on May 2nd) and could use some support. We being my mom and I. I would love to tell you a little bit more about our venture Give To Get Jobs For-profit jobs that give back and I hope it resonates with you! Give To Get Jobs is a job board exclusively for jobs in the for-profit sector with a social and environmental mission mainly social enterprise and corporate social responsibility. We have two main goals 1) To create greater awareness of using the power of business to do good and bring more job seekers into this space; and 2) Support job training as a tool for economic development both internationally and domestically. We are able to support job training by donating a portion of each and every single job posting through our partner organization See Your Impact. Where else can you post a job and give back at the same time? We felt the job board industry needed to be shaken up a bit. Our initiative is innovative in every sense of the word. First we are the first job board that is a social enterprise. Our job board is used to further a social mission besides which is a non-profit what other job board does that? Second we are a job board that uses job posting to create jobs. What we do and what we support couldn be any more streamlined. Also we are the firstpany that is exclusively a job board for jobs in the for-profit sector that give back. Finally we are one of the very few organizations in this space that doesn just talk the talk. A lot of times when you see consulting firms orpanies who focus on working with and spreading awareness about social enterprise and corporate social responsibility they don have a social mission themselves. I suppose they believe working to help and further the causes of other socially responsiblepanies is enough. But it isn enough for us. We felt it was of the utmost importance to have a social mission as well. All of these reasonsbined make us a truly unique and innovativepany. Hopefully this makes you want to learn more. And having lunch with me would certainly give you the opportunity.
What is it like to downgrade from a smartphone to a feature phone?
I had smartphones from 26-211 (Android). Now I have gone back to feature phone. There are times when I miss the smartphone (to look up for something quick on Google) but mostly I find the negatives of owning a feature phone balance the positives. Battery duration Smartphones are huge battery hogs. Most smartphones don't last for 24 hours without recharging. My current feature phone lasts for a week. I'm always on the go and don't always remember to charge. Now I have a weekly reminder to charge at my own convenience. Distractions Smartphones add an array of distractions to my existing pile of distractions. I don't want WhatsApp and othermunication apps to add that pile. Most of us are ovemunicating. By living realtime we are often forced to be ADHD & constantly do con-switching swapping. Walking on the street to see people like zombies lost in their own world of games apps I have realized that I don't want to be them. Screen size To me the tablets provide an idealpromise between phones and laptops. After the arrival of iPad I was no longer satisfied with seeing things on a micro scale. n Get out of rat race Once I'm addicted to the smartphone and built an image that way I have to keep up with the latest of the gadgets all the time. I thought it was not worth the time especially when you arepeting with themon masses. nAgain it is a personal decision. It depends on what you prioritize and how your workflow happens. I work for 12+ hours on my laptop and anything outside of this is when I want to experience the real world. I don't want a smartphone toe in the way of that.
