University alumni offer tips for future entrepreneurs at lecture

Drew Mika
Issue date: 11/9/07

S. Kent Fannon and Diane Fannon spoke at yesterday afternoon's innovation and entrepreneurship lecture.

11/9/07 - As part of the University of Rhode Island's Anthony J Risica Endowed Lecture Series on Innovation and Entrepreneurship, two URI alumni, S. Kent Fannon and Diane Fannon, spoke about entrepreneurship in the corporate environment yesterday. Their talk focused on the two types of entrepreneurs, intentional and accidental.

The Fannons presented in front of a small crowd of students and the community at Kirk Auditorium. The two began their talk by speaking about their experiences at URI and how they became entrepreneurs.

Diane said she considers herself an "accidental entrepreneur," which means she never intended to become an entrepreneur. Diane graduated from URI with degrees in English and education, but her career track fluctuated throughout the years.

Diane's first step to entrepreneurship started when she became a first grade teacher and then a design assistant in New York City. Later, she became a secretary for an advertising agency and eventually took a job as a broadcast producer.

Utah firm wants to go where GPS doesn't

By PETER SVENSSON, AP Technology Writer
Dec. 13, 2007

In one high-tech thriller after another, the hero attaches a tiny tracking device on the villain and follows him as blinking dot on a computer screen.

In real life, this kind of technology would be great for tracking pets or kids, even packages or luggage — anything that tends to wander.

But it doesn't really exist.

There are GPS devices, of course, but strap a half-pound GPS collar to a dog and you'll realize it's far from "Mission Impossible." GPS-enabled cell phones are becoming more common, but they have problems, like accuracy indoors, and they aren't cheap.
