Inventor Ric Richardson speaking at TiE Melbourne on Monday

I've been privileged to be the opening speaker at this years TiE conference in Melbourne at the Hyatt next Monday the 3rd.

Even though technically I am not an entrepreneur now, the first 15 years of my time at Uniloc was pretty much all about being an entrepreneur.

This year they are talking about integrity of vision, coming from the right place to ensure success and other important whole person attributes.

They are also talking about work life balance... something I am still working on but at least I'm in Byron Bay... that ought to rub off some how....

Anyway, if you are able to come please say hi as I will be hanging around the conference for much of the day and dont get the chance to come to Melbourne as much as I'd like. See you there. Ric

Ric Richardson files simple local sharing patent - its yours for $13,350

Ever wanted to share something with others simply? A photo with a group at your dinner table? A business card with someone you just met? But don’t want to be typing out email addresses.

This issue has been a thorn in my side for some time but this latest patent may fix that. 
By using the noise that surrounds us all the time our phones can work out that we are nearby someone who we want to share something with. Pretty obvious once you look at how we as humans work!
With this in mind all we need to do when we want to share something on our phones is to have them connect to each other and use the noise around us to make sure we are not inadvertently sharing something with a total stranger. It allows us to make super fast, convenient and easy connections with anyone nearby. It's kind of like talking... only the people nearby can hear you talk even if you are in a room with a hundred people.
Here is how it works:
I tell you I want to share something with you... a photo, a music file, a b…
