How to get the party started?
Step 1: Get acquired by Philips Lighting for $735m.
Step 2: Quit.
Step 3: Launch new startup company apparently just for the hell of it.
Ihor Lys, one of the two founders of Color Kinetics, has an interesting new project going: a startup called ElectroFur. LED illuminated fake fur accessories targeting the club/rave/festival scene.
Ihor was always the brilliant Wozniak to George Mueller, who always played the extravagant Jobs role. So I find it quite amusing to see their roles reversed (sort of). George has started the quite normal and proper Ecosense Lighting, while Ihor is partying like a rockstar. It’s especially fun seeing Ihor partying with Richard Branson!
Who would have thought?
