2nd Tuesday in December – Knights crusade into the HIVE

November 13th, 2012 No comments

Combatant’s Keep  is an entertaining, educational re-enactment group dedicated to fill the void between entertainment and education without sacrificing the pageantry, drama, and spectacle that are synonymous with the Middle Ages.

Join us at the HIVE for the 2nd Tuesday program this coming December 11th, starting at 7:30pm.

Living history enthusiasts Barry Kimball, Ryan Hittinger, and maybe Casey McCarthy will bring their hardware and talk about their historically accurate re-creations of live jousts from the 15th century and reinactments from other time periods.

2nd Tuesday in November – Lean Patent Protection for the Start-Up

November 9th, 2012 No comments

Congratulations, you’ve designed a better mousetrap!  Now how do you protect your new Intellectual Property as your start-up company takes your new product to the market?

Join us at the HIVE on Nov. 13, starting at 7:30pm, when local IP lawyer, Vance VanDrake of Ulmer & Berne LLP, will be the featured guest speaker at  our November 2nd Tuesday program.  Guests and first-time visitors are welcome to attend!

There has been a lot of (well deserved) attention given to the “lean start-up” model for early stage businesses.  This model encourages start-up companies to create a minimum viable product (MVP); then iterate as the technology develops and customer feedback is received.  At its core, this model recognizes the risks of trying to guess what the customer wants and where the technology will head.

Vance will present his “lean” patent model that emerging businesses should consider.  This patent strategy  introduces the Minimum Viable Patent (MVP), which mirrors the lean start-up model and shares the same benefits of flexibility, low initial cost, and optimization.

Urban Survival: Zombie Outbreak Cincinnati

September 25th, 2012 No comments

Is it better to be unprepared for the expected, or prepared for the unexpected? As cities around the world brace for the end of times, perhaps they should just be making plans. Urban survival is as much about knowing your terrain as it is knowing your enemy. Where will you run when hordes of the undead attack? How will you communicate when smart phones become as dead as your antagonist? More importantly, what IS Cincinnati chili made of exactly, and is it enough to help sustain life?

All of these questions and more will be address in Urban Survival: Zombie Outbreak Cincinnati, where we explore the design of a city with extreme prejudice.

When: Oct. 9th 7:30pm

Where: Hive13 (2929 SpringGrove Ave)

Speaker: Giacomo Ciminello
