Robert Scoble interviews Lisa Padilla about NamePlace

If you’d like to learn more about NamePlace, you can watch this informative video with Robert Scoble.

We now have over 80 cities on board with millions of dollars in sponsorship inventory. This includes everything from playgrounds to baseball and skate parks, from city festivals and other events to community programs for low income children or road safety. Our sponsorships also help install safe lighting in neighborhoods that need themcould use some extra help (like, all of them.) Sponsorships and naming rights alike, are available on NamePlace. Naming rights begin at a duration of 5-years and some opportunities, like a city bridge (shown below) in New Orleans will hold a name for the life of the asset, aka forever. Naming rights might be for a corporate sponsor, a famous Jazz musician, a sports hall of famer or other individual. NamePlace aims to help communities by improving the places, programs and events we all love.

Energy Efficiency

My next show is on energy efficiency. Joining me are entrepreneurs and world-travelers Stephen and Lynda Kane from the UK, Brighton specifically. Stephen and Lynda are wonderful, energetic people, spreading the word about their energy awareness training and tools and their book, The Hidden Secrets of Real Health. As well, we are graced with Marla Cilley, otherwise known as the FlyLady, she has become a fast household name, leaving me wondering when her own book will replace my copy of All-New Hints from Heloise. Flylady.net, a 24-hour/day streaming show now on BlogTalkRadio (where Lisacast is often recorded), has gathered more members than any other Yahoo! group created, over 500k. Her site gives rise to the argument for community and giving, as her altruistic nature is contagious. I will also discuss my partner at Communicate.io, Fred Davis’ Gadget Night, his event and the more efficient electronics he recommended. Finally, I’ll highlight some of the people involved the ever-growing green sector to talk about what’s coming next.

In a freewheeling chat on gadgets that ranged from the best part of the new iPhones to pens that record notes and sound, technology guru Fred Davis apologized for going low-tech.

Davis, editor of many of the world’s leading computer magazines and longtime Silicon Valley insider, told a roomful of “techies” Wednesday he had to scrap his multimedia presentation because his laptop was stolen from his car.

“That’s why I always keep everything on a thumb drive,” he said, noting the valuable stuff was saved. “It’s way more valuable than my computer.”

Are you doing more energy efficient activities this year, or is your company?
