Our CEO, Patrick Husting, is on a European Vacation with his family and PUSHBI is hitching a ride.  Watch our captain, Patrick, keep tabs on us while enjoying the dynamics of international travel!

Captain’s log. Stardate European Vacation 06.13.2013.   PushBI and I have been networking with the locals.  Great to see that most of the locals we meet are captivated and quite speechless with the technology they see.

Do you know? What was the most important modern day event that took place at Versailles?  (I’ll reveal the answer tomorrow).

06.13.2013 – The Palace of Versailles

Captain’s log. Stardate European Vacation 06.11.2013.   After making the (twice) trek to SeaTac with my beautiful wife, 4 boys and PUSHBI  – we checked-in and are on our way. Using our own solution, PUSHBI, I was able to review my customized dashboard with my company information before I took-off  “across the pond.”  PUSHBI is my travel buddy delivering real-time data when and wherever I am.

Business Intelligence at 30,000 feet. Come fly with us. #analytics #mobilebi @arrowflightclub @geekwire

Last night we attended the launch party of Arrow Airlines, a private airline shuttle between Seattle and San Jose.  I had the pleasure of meeting Russell Belden at a GeekWire event a couple months ago and got pretty excited about his new startup that totally shortens the time it takes to get to San Jose from Seattle and back.  No more airport delays and TSA trying to touch your junk (Russell quote).

image

Russell had his launch party last night and what a time it was.  How cool is it to take one of his passions of flying and work that into an exciting brand new business.  The food was great and the networking was fantastic.  Learned a lot more about the airline industry.

It was an amazing evening at the King County Airport.  You drive up and walk right out to your plane that is waiting for you.  Love the RED carpet treatment.  Look at that sunset in the background.

PUSHBI is the perfect application when you are jetting across the skies at 450 miles an hour!   The data is on your device ready to go and have discussions on making your business better.  (product plug)

That is John Cook from GeekWire.  He grabbed my business card, being the Golden Geek that I am and entered it in the drawing for a FREE round trip on the plane.

And to top it off, I won the grand prize!  WINNER!  Go figure, probably rigged.  So then I got my picture taken with Russell and all the stewardesses.

I now have my own private plane.  Sweet!

Enjoy, Patrick

Listen to an EPIC Interview by the @GEEKWIRE Guys of me Patrick Husting.

I had the honor to meet up with Todd Bishop and John Cook, the founders of the EPIC technology news blog, GeekWire.  They have a weekly radio/podcast show featuring noteworthy technology news found here, only in the Northwest.

You will probably want to skip watching the SuperBowl and instead, tune into the podcast and listen to one of the most EPIC interviews ever.  Thankfully they didn’t record all the comments and laughs we had off the air…

I had a ton of fun talking about why Windows 8 was Great for Extended Results.

GeekWire airs on 97.3 KIRO-FM in Seattle at 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. Saturday. The show runs every weekend on GeekWire.com. You can receive every episode using this RSS feed, or subscribe in iTunes.
