This week on the GeekWire radio show, we catch up with Brooke Martin, the 14-year-old inventor of the iCPooch webcam and treat dispenser for dogs — the overwhelming audience favorite at the “Inventions We Love” session at last month’s GeekWire Summit.
Brooke is joined in the studio by her dad, Chris Martin, giving us a chance to talk with both of them about Brooke’s experience as a teenage tech entrepreneur, including Chris’ tips for other parents whose kids have similar ambitions.
That conversation begins in the second segment of the show, at 9:35 in the audio player below.
We begin with our weekly news roundup, including Churchill Downs’ big deal to buy Seattle’s Big Fish game company, an inside look at how the NFL uses Microsoft’s Surface tablets on the sidelines, and a rundown of Microsoft’s big decision to open-source its .NET software development platform.
Also listen for our GeekWire Trivia Challenge, with a chance to win a Samsung Galaxy Alpha or second-generation Moto X smartphone courtesy of AT&T. GeekWire’s John Cook and I will be conducting interviews for AT&T’s DevTV at the upcoming 2015 AT&T Developer Summit in Las Vegas, taking place Jan. 3-5, in advance of CES. Join us!
