SocialMediaIconsI have my own vanity domain…of course, you already know that or you wouldn’t be reading this post right now.  One of the cool things about having your own domain, you can create a bunch of subdomains.  You know, those domains like blog.leonardknight.com and point it to somewhere cool.  So, I was thinking…instead of sharing the long, tedious URL associated with my media links.  Why not create subdomains to point to those big long ugly domains?!?!?!  Since I’m a member of Neighborhood Nerds, I enlisted the help of the nerds by sending a quick email to help@nnerd.com and voila I have a bunch of cool new subdomains I can easily remember and share.

  • li.leonardknight.com
  • tw.leonardknight.com
  • fb.leonardknight.com
  • gp.leonardknight.com

The list could go on and on…so could I…but…I’ll cut it off here for now.  So, if you have a domain and want to create some cool little subdomains for your social media links and other stuff, tell your IT guy or if you don’t have an IT guy, talk to the Nerds 865-622-2422

Entrepreneurs of Knoxville – Home Page

As most of you know, the EOK website is built on Ning.com’s platform.  We are still on the older version of Ning but have updated the colors and layout a little.  Soon, we will be migrating to Ning 3.0 with all sorts of new bells and whistles…plus…it should be more aesthetically pleasing.  If you want to know more about Entrepreneurs of Knoxville or Ning, feel free to send me an email, text, tweet, etc.

As you may know, my company, Bright Software helps entrepreneurs bring their software application ideas to fruition.  Not too long ago, a young entrepreneur brought us an incredible product idea.  He needed a little help on the revenue model and market research but the results were well worth our time!  Jay and I discussed the project for a few weeks then decided to engage Augustine in the creation of Fair Mechanics.

A few months and a $100,000 later, we are on the cusp of launching the Fair Mechanics system!  We go live with a Web-based application, iPhone App, and Android App later this month.  We are in the works now loading the system with mechanics and users.

Keep an eye out for our launch…it’s gonna be AWESOME!

FairMechanics.com Application allows “Shoppers” to post their car repair needs and Local Mechanics bid on those jobs!

Residential and Small Business technical support for a small monthly fee!

I first had a vision of Neighborhood Nerds in 2009 while helping friends with their technical issues.  I quickly noticed a common dissatisfaction with service providers. The common complaint, high cost of service and the low level of delivery (the client wanted more for less).  Many also complained about the ineffeciency of the technicians (the client had to spend time explaining the issues). Another complaint was poor service (the tech just couldn’t fix the issue or they caused additional issues).  Being an entrepreneur, I saw an opportunity for a new business.

My love with technology started in High School where I was first introduced to a TRS-80 computer..and was immediately hooked.  From there, I worked on various machines programming in BASIC, Pascal, Fortran, Assembly, C, and a few others.  I entered UT Knoxville in 1987.  While at UT, I had the opportunity to work with the first IBM personal computers, VAX systems, Iris Workstations, SPARC Workstations, and the first Macintosh computers.

After graduating from UT Knoxville with a degree in Electrical Engineering, I went to work for Allen-Bradley where I engineered, programmed, and installed industrial control systems.  This allowed me to work with the latest technology in computers, communications, business systems, and gadgets of all sorts!

Later I diversified my portfolio while exercising my entrepreneurial spirit.  I launched Russell Knight Properties in 1995 as the family’s real-estate investing company. In 2000 I launched DBR Systems, an Industrial Automation company. In 2006 I launched Bright Software a business incubator specializing in Software solutions.  In 2008 I launched Entrepreneurs of Knoxville to help others with their business startups.  In 2011 I launched Taking IT Home in Sequoyah Hills, a neighborhood in Knoxville, TN.

Neighborhood Nerds (NNerds) is a residential tech support company with a huge focus on the customer relationship. The nerds have a real empathy for their clients and their issues with Technology.  NNerds operates on a membership model where its competitors operate on a break-fix model. By setting up a shop in the middle of a neighborhood, using a membership model, and investing on the front-end, NNerds is able to bring a VERY affordable service to its members
