Eric Pulier’s vAtomic Systems is a Game Changer

Posted by Avery05 on


There are many ways to succeed in the world of technology and it appears that Eric Pulier, an author and entrepreneur, has figured out the majority of them. Right now Eric Pulier is one of the most innovative professional entrepreneurs in the tech industry and his work is going to have long-standing effects for years to come. Pulier worked his way up into this position thanks to a wide and varied career that was fueled by his commitment to outworking everyone in the room. Let’s look at how Eric Pulier, founder of XPrize, has become the man he is today.


To start things off you would have to really understand just where Pulier came from. Pulier grew up in the ’80s in New Jersey where his fascination with computers first bloomed. Pulier loved computers so much that by the 4th grade he was already learning how to program. From there it was a hop and a step to running his own computer database business — all before graduating high school. Pulier innately took to computers like a fish to water and that would follow him going forward in life. A short stop at Harvard, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude, would precede Pulier landing in Los Angeles and ready to start his career.


Since landing in Los Angeles in 1991, Pulier has gone on to establish some highly successful business ventures. Of those ventures we can see that Digital Evolution, ServiceMesh, Media Platform, Akana and Desktone have all gone on to do some great things. Right now Pulier is focused on the work that his company vAtomic Systems is working on — a digital macro elements being proliferated as real goods. Puliers’ vAtomic Systems was created after carefully analyzing marketing trends in order to identify how things were changing going into the future. It was easy for Pulier to pull the trigger once he realized how successful macro trading could be.


Eric Pulier has done many things outside of the industry, as well. His philanthropy with Painted Turtle has been life changing. The Painted Turtle is a summer camp for children suffering from chronic illness. It is a life changing event for these children as it gives them joy and helps to raise money to support their needs.




Doug Levitt Takes the Bus to Develop the Greyhound Diaries

Posted by Avery05 on

In the U.S. the economic slowdown of the first decade of the 21st century has often been compared to “The Great Depression” of the early 20th century, and for Doug Levitt his own journey across the U.S. has come to replicate the federally funded artistic works created in the 1930s. The U.S. Government felt it was important for the issues facing its citizens to be recorded in one of the darkest hours of the country; Doug Levitt believes his work is similar in tone and texture to that of 1930s artists as he travels the U.S. by bus looking for the stories of real people who are often ignored by the mainstream media.

Levitt embarked on the journey that would eventually become “The Greyhound Diaries” in 2004 when he acted as a volunteer for the Presidential election campaign of Democrat John Kerry and used bus journeys to build support prior to the election taking place. After being struck by the socioeconomic issues facing the people he met on his bus journeys, Levitt eventually made the decision to return to these stories and has spent almost the entirety of the next decade moving across the U.S. by bus.

By traveling by bus the artist believes he has an unrivaled opportunity to meet the people who live at the harshest margins of society and do not feel they are represented by the main TV networks or news organizations. “The Greyhound Diaries” uses many different forms of media to tell the real stories of people using music, spoken word performances, photography, and a YouTube channel showing the work completed by the London School of Economics graduate. Doug Levitt on Twitter.

Born in Washington D.C., Doug Levitt has been deeply affected by learning more about the financial and social issues facing millions of Americans living in the heart of the country; Levitt himself was born into a political family in the nation’s capital and believes being sheltered from the major issues of the day by the nature of the Washington economy left him unaware of the problems in the heartland of the U.S. Levitt developed “The Greyhound Diaries” after spending much of his career working in the broadcast news industry as a foreign correspondent for many of the major news organizations.

Keeping Our Jail Free of Drugs with Securus Technologies

Posted by Avery05 on

I work in our local state jail, and each day I am putting my life on the line to try to keep the peace in jail. These same inmates that I am trying to keep from hurting each other, are the ones getting high and looking to hurt me and my team of corrections officers. To combat the problem, we have to work tirelessly each day to try to keep drugs out of the inmates hands.


An inmate who is high on drugs can be a bigger problem to handle and puts us all in severe danger. The ways that we try to combat the flow of drugs in the jail is by stopping each visitor and going through their belongings and scanning them trough a large x-ray machine. Gang members are not concerned about going to jail if caught smuggling drugs because they feel they will earn credit with the gang leader for taking the risk.


To fight the drug issues on another level, we do a surprise cell inspection all the time. These searches sometimes yield us the drugs we want, but the inmates tend to be one step ahead of us and keep the drugs from being discovered. One last resource that has become invaluable in our efforts to stop the flow of drugs in the jail in monitoring the inmate calls. The inmates know we are listening, so they try to code their messages so we can not make heads or tails of what they are saying.


When Securus Technologies installed the new system to monitor all inmate calls, we saw results immediately. The chatter was detected by the LBS software, and pointed us to inmates who were handing down orders, how the drugs got into the jail, and who was carrying out the orders. This phone system has been key in our efforts to make the jail safer.

Whitney Wolfe Is Changing The Dating Game

Posted by Avery05 on

The Dating World Today

Whitney Wolfe is a veteran of the dating app world. She has managed to create some of the most successful stories in the dating world thanks to her work at Hatch Labs. There she created Tinder alongside others and worked to make it the most successful dating app around. However, she isn’t satisfied with what Tinder has become and wants to make something much greater. This is where she came up with the idea of Bumble from.

How She Plans On Changing It

The biggest problem she sees with online dating is the rise of sexual harassment. So many women using online dating apps are forced to deal with some of the ugliest examples of harassment around. To combat this Bumble only allows men to respond to women after women have made the first move. This stands in direct contrast to what is often seen in so many dating apps around the world. The results of this experiment seem to be paying off. Very few people who use Bumble complain of sexual harassment. Although other dating sites aren’t willing to disclose how often sexual harassment goes on, less than 1% of Bumble users report sexual harassment.

What It Means For All Of Us

The results of Bumble suggest we have a better ways of dealing with the issues commonly found in online dating. There isn’t much to compare this to because other dating apps aren’t the business of assessing sexual harassment, but it’s clear that she has certainly created something that she can be proud of. Bumble is already giving millions of people hundreds of millions of matches with no signs of stopping. If things continue the way they are now it’s likely that future successes will be even greater.
