Congressman's Son Won't Shut The Hell Up During Hearing
Before founding HeadBlade, I worked for ESPN.com. Someone in my group broke new technology down like this; let’s take a camera for example. At first, people take pictures to take pictures. It’s a thrill to use the technology. Then they start using it to record for journalism or historic purposes. Then it takes on its own life and becomes a vehicle for entertainment. It is no longer the end, it is merely another tool we have mastered to give us new media. The Onion is a product that truly uses the Internet on another level. It’s smart entertainment that is perfectly suited to afflict the comfortable like this “bring your son to work today” for politicians.
eGuider: Todd Greene
Ten years ago, Todd Greene had an idea for an invention, $200,000, and a dream to solve a problem and perhaps even a stigma for men who lose their hair. He created the HeadBlade that works ergonomically in the users hand to get the best shave possible for one’s head. But the “inside job” he did for men who ventured uncertainly into the world of headshaving is his biggest contribution. You might say Todd was at the forefront, along with Michael Jordan and Telly Savalas a generation before, of asserting “Bald is Beautiful!” Now a $10 million company in annual sales revenues, the device that started it all has been named a TIME magazine “Best Invention” and the HeadBlade is included in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Not bad for a guy with “a dollar and a dream”.
