Techstination feature for Wednesday, August 9, 2023

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.      Have you caught The Beanie Bubble movie in theaters or on Apple TV Plus?     It is the true story….with a few name changes…about the Beanie Baby craze during the 90s and the very young employee, named Maya in the movie, who took Beanie Babies online…creating a Web site and boosting the resale popularity on eBay.  She is in reality Lina Trivedi...

“When I had the idea to create the Web site, the Web wasn’t even a thing that was commonly known.  Most people didn’t even know what the Internet was and I remember I had to explain what the Internet even was to him.”

Him…is Ty Warner…the toy billionaire.  Trivedi went on to become a top Web designer…and has a new AI startup ……that will address issues of loneliness and social isolation.

You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
