Radiojar Wants to Add The Human Element to Online Music

Radiojar is a social music platform that allows anyone to create their own web radio station without spending loads of time finding the right software and hardware to get started. The Athens, Greece based start-up wants to add the human element to online music which we are currently lacking with services like Pandora, Slacker Radio and Spotify. Here is a interview I had last week with RadioJar’s co-Founder Stathis Koutsogeorgos about the his company’s creation, the future of web radio and the environment for start-ups with the instability in Greece’s economy.

What inspired the creation of Radiojar?

Our first idea was to build something that allowed online DJing among friends. Based on this concept in 2009, we begun researching what technology we could use to achieve it. We realized early in 2010 that there was a huge gap in the solutions available online for internet radio stations, and started to investigate this market further. We ended up developing a prototype for the server-side live stream mixing, and then continued focused on internet radio to come up with Radiojar in 2011.

Besides the lack of the human element, why do you think online radio is so stagnant?

People expect more interaction and control when they experience something online. The new, internet-only radio stations know this well and are adapting and we’re here to help them do it with a reduced cost. The terrestrial radio stations that simply broadcast the same stream online appear dated and non-interesting to an online audience: They are too corporate and standardised, and they are tightly regulated by playlists. We can help them get an internet strategy and expand on it.

I noticed that RadioJar is working on some pretty advanced technology. What has the development process been like?

We have been trying to find technological solutions that are as open as possible, trustworthy, reasonably priced, play well with others and allow us to scale. We’re implementing a complex platform, so we have to use many different technologies to achieve the result we’re aiming for and we’ve found the above guidelines have served us well in keeping things smooth and simple. We believe in open source software and we try to contribute as much as we can to the communities of the software solutions we’re using.

How has the start-up community been affected by the instability of the economy in Greece?

It is true that there is much pessimism and uncertainty for the future, but somehow networking forums and entrepreneurship events are blossoming. This caused a new wave of entrepreneurial activity in Greece and the future looks promising. We’re very optimistic. Things are tough, but there are always opportunities, even within a recession.

What do you think web radio will look like in the future?

We are witnessing a huge change in the web radio field. Numbers of internet radio listeners are growing every day (as opposed to terrestrial radio listeners), and this creates a need for quality, competitive online radio, strong enough to resist against other music related services. We believe that this, in conjunction with the new technology we’re bringing to the field, will lead to an increase in live, interactive shows that engage listeners in new and more meaningful ways.

What are some of the challenges you guys are currently facing?

We’re self-funded, so we’re in a constant battle to meet our targets while staying in budget. We are looking into securing some investments that will allow us to grow in the long term. As our project gets closer to launch, we’re facing the challenge of how to better reach our target market, offer a valuable service and stay relevant.

I partecipanti avranno a disposizione una soluzione che utilizza un apparato hardware multifunzione programmabile in grado di raccogliere in maniera autonoma una serie di dati (temperatura, posizione, orientamento, movimento), di essere collegato ad altri apparati e di trasmettere via radio le informazioni raccolte a grande distanza. I partecipanti avranno inoltre a disposizione gli opendata per la città di Brescia del progetto SocialCar (http://socialcar-project.eu/), progetto finanziato nell’ambito del programma di ricerca e innovazione dell’Unione Europea Horizon 2020. In particolare saranno messi a disposizione i big data relativi al trasporto pubblico Bresciano (autobus, metro, parcheggi, bikesharing) permettendo ai partecipanti di progettare modelli potenzialmente scalabili su ogni città europea aderente al progetto. Attraverso l’utilizzo dei sensori a2a si chiede di sviluppare applicazioni in grado di: Smart mobility e SocialCar Effettuare la predizione dei tempi di percorrenza dei mezzi pubblici e determinare la loro posizione in tempo reale, in modo da permettere a Brescia Mobilità di migliorare il servizio di trasporto urbano. Registrare posizione e percorsi dei mezzi di trasporto in sharing in modo da comprendere le abitudini di mobilità dei cittadini bresciani, arrrivando ad elaborare un modello potenzialmente scalabile su tutte le realtà coinvolte nel progetto europeo Socialcar.

Fornire strumenti di socializzazione e condivisione durante gli acquisti L'evento si svolgerà in quattro fasi: 1. Proposta. All’inizio dell’evento, gli hacker proporranno un’idea progettuale da sviluppare durante il weekend e la sottoporranno al voto degli altri partecipanti. Al termine di questa fase, sarà stilata una classifica e le otto idee con il maggior numero di voti saranno sviluppate nel corso dell’evento. 2. Formazione dei team. Gli hackers formeranno – in modo volontario o su indicazione degli ideatori – dei team di 4/8 persone decidendo a quale idea contribuire. I team resteranno tali per tutta la durata dell’evento. 3. Lavoro di gruppo. Dopo aver formato i team, gli hackers si dedicheranno alla definizione e allo sviluppo dei progetti con l’obiettivo di realizzare dei prototipi e un pitch da presentare a una giuria per la loro valutazione. Sarà permesso l’utilizzo di qualsiasi tecnologia. Gli hacker lavoreranno con il proprio computer portatile e con altra attrezzatura hardware (es. schede di prototipazione) che ritenessero necessaria allo sviluppo dei progetti.  4. Valutazione finale. Dopo aver ascoltato le presentazioni dei progetti, la commissione si riunirà per decretare il miglior progetto seguendo i criteri definiti in questo bando. Il miglior progetto e relativo team saranno proclamati alle ore 18 di domenica 2 ottobre. In bocca la lupo!

Do you agree with my description of the human mind?

Question by SaturnMan: Do you agree with my description of the human mind?
I have always said that the human mind (or brain) is not like a computer at all. Instead, it is more like a radio receiver. That is, it picks up ideas and thoughts from whatever “station” it is tuned toward. That means that an unknown “something” out in space is always broadcasting. Bad thoughts come from evil broadcasters; while good and productive come from the good, or God Himself. Do you agree?

Best answer:

Answer by Magley64…SF
nope, sorry…

the problem is that if you put people in solitary confinement, they will typically go insane, so your “cosmic radio station” equates to ones own thoughts, and no stimuli at all…

Question by christos: I recently start playing world of warcraft.I love playing with a dps warrior human so i made a talent tree!?
please take a look and give my your opinion!!

Answer by Nik
That’s a pretty good build. Very close to my dps warrior build (linked in Source below).

I’m curious if you are finding the points in Intensify Rage or Commanding Presence to really be worth it, though. I’m finding that Cleave is more useful as a rage dump in multiple-target scenarios, and I like being able to AoE slow (with Piercing Howl). Finally, I’m just too fond of the extra rage from Bloodrage, particularly Glyphed, to give up Improved Bloodrage. 2H Weapon Specialization does me no good if I’m rage-starved.

Other than those questions, though, I can see your build as definitely being viable (possibly more so than mine in raiding situations, honestly).

Cryogenic Shipping of Human Embryos to India

www.medicaltourismco.com Cryogenic Shipping (Cryo Ship) & storage of embryos for Surrogacy in India is discussed in this video. The success rate with frozen embryos is about half of what is in the case of fresh cycle. The special cryoship tank are rented from the clinic & shipped by DHL to the lab abroad for shipping of the embryos. Although fresh cycles are recommended for higher success rates, but where not possible this may be a good option with cryo-preserved embryos. the cost of travel & hotels may be saved, but the cost of embryo and sperm shipping will be added. International(USA, Canada, UK, Australia, India, Singapore, Japan etc) human embryo transport is available at all many places where the country laws may allow it and also DHL has shipment facilities.
