Nano Labs Corp. (CTLE) Appoints Dr. Victor Castano as Chief Research and Innovation Officer

CENTENNIAL, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/12 -- Nano Labs Corp. (OTCBB: CTLE), a nanotechnology development company, today announced that it has brought on Dr. Victor Castaño as Chief Research and Innovation Officer, an appointment timed to coincide with the company's readiness to expand its market presence and explore new global business opportunities.

In assuming the scientific and academic leadership role in the company, Dr. Castaño will provide distinguished scientific oversight to Nano Lab Corp's advanced R&D base and product portfolio. He will advise, direct and work in league with a strong team of scientists, designers, engineers, and business and marketing specialists to pursue commercialization of innovative nano products and materials holding real market potential. As well, he and the team will promote opportunities through a store of hundreds of peer-reviewed international papers, patents, and prototypes representing some decades of work.

Dr. Castaño is a member of the faculty and the founding Director of the Center for Applied Physics and Advanced Technology (CFATA) at UNAM (Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico), the most distinguished academic institution in the country -- and the only university in Mexico with Nobel Prize laureates among its alumni. The professor is himself a graduate of UNAM, where he obtained his Doctorate in Science (Physics) in 1985 and has had a distinguished career of international level ever since.

With additional knowledge in chemistry and mathematics -- and holding numerous distinctions and memberships from academic groups around the globe -- Dr. Castaño is a preeminent scientific figure in the field of nanotechnology worldwide. He also has served as a visiting scientist at IBM's Thomas J. Watson Research Center in New York, and as a Fellow of the Editorial Board of many leading journals in Materials Science and Engineering. He has been part of Committees in both Universities and Industries in practically all continents.

"We're delighted Professor Castaño is participating with us at Nano Labs Corp. He has attracted more media attention in Mexico than any other scientist through his discoveries and inventions, and he is celebrated for solving practical problems. Of particular note is his development of an anti-graffiti paint and a high-strength polyamide coating for bullet-proof textiles, which are original nanotechnology applications currently in production," said Nano Labs President and CEO Bernardo Chavarría.

Said Dr. Castaño: "I'm glad to collaborate with Nano Labs Corp in these exciting times. As the company undertakes initiatives to pursue ever more promising and interesting challenges, I look forward to what lies ahead. It's a great group here, and I see nothing but success on the horizon."

Former Chairman Mr. Jose Manuel Flores Hernandez, is stepping down for personal reasons but will remain active with Nano Labs as a member of the Board of Advisors. Mr. Flores' resignation came into effect October 10th, 2012.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?

Azure Stream Analytics is a fully managed distributed stream computation service that provides low latency, scalable processing of streaming data in the cloud with an enterprise grade SLA. It features built-in integration with Azur...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
