Invent or re-purpose- recorded future

May 4, 2010

With such a premium being placed on the innovation and inventing the new and never before seen, it sometimes pays to take a look at how what currently exists can be re-shaped or re-formed to create a new use.

A fantastic example of this is Recorded Future, a company that uses some smart search tools to provide a glimpse into the future. It’s not rocket science, but it’s a smart thought about how data can be parsed to create new value.

Here’s their story.

The interesting thing is that you can’t access Recorded Future without a subscription which currently retails for $149/month.

How’s that Chris Anderson? It looks like some companies are trying to breakout of the “free” model.

Somehow it’s not surprising to discover that Google is an investor in the company
