Who We Are
Welcome to the home base for CapeEyes, where technology, community, and business intersect.
Three quotes do a pretty good job summing up CapeEyes.
First, from Isaac Asimov:
“The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.”
That’s so true. How often do we have facts or technique, but can’t see how to best use them? At CapeEyes we don’t serve wisdom on a platter, but we do have a group of people who can help you find your own best practices as you look at your organization and how it responds to technological disruption, or uses technology and emerging techniques.
Second, from Arthur C. Clarke:
“I don’t pretend we have all the answers. But the questions are certainly worth thinking about.”
Amen to that! When it comes to adapting to an ever-changing world, with new tools and techniques at our disposal, no one – and I mean no one – has all the answers. The key lies in keeping an open mind, asking questions, and exploring the options. At CapeEyes, that’s exactly what our team helps you do.
And third, also from Arthur C. Clarke, comes my personal favorite:
“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
It sure seems like magic when all the pieces work together and suddenly you and your organization do things you’ve never done before. You make magic by seeing the possibilities, asking the questions, and deploying the solutions with as much wisdom as possible. The CapeEyes team supports you on that journey.
Technology. Community. Business. Look at their points of intersection and that’s where you’ll find us: CapeEyes.
Bio: Teresa Martin
Principal Teresa A. Martin has worked at the intersection of technology and content for more than 25 years. She served as a CEO and COO of technology companies in Silicon Valley and metro Boston, authored three books on web and online technologies, and launched several start-ups.
She was part of the high-profile Information Design Lab within Knight-Ridder, developing a prototype tablet newspaper in 1994, along with early content management tools to store, retrieve, archive, and manage mixed media content. She then founded one of the first web content publishing companies and grew it from launch to acquisition in five years.
In the early 2000s she worked as VP/Strategy and COO for a digital asset management company whose products managed photographs, PDFs, and other large graphic files. She developed hosted (aka cloud-based) product set as well as building relationships that led to new distribution channels.
Recent community technology work included working with four nonprofit and governmental entities to develop a brand and message and produce a region-wide event for more than 300 regional leaders focused on 21st century development; served as founder and officers for the OpenCape Corporation, which received a $32M BTOP grant in 2010 for a region-wide 350-mile open access middle mile network; and launched Unwired Village, a community access broadband network integrated into the local business community.
Other projects include launching a science/technology education program for grades 4-12, and organizing a regional STEM network.
She holds a BS from Boston University and an EdM with a concentration in Interactive Technology from Harvard’s Graduate School of Education. She currently serves as an elected official to the Cape Cod Regional Government’s legislative body, the Assembly of Delegates.
