Nerds Rule Wall Street in "Wall Geek" Web Series

Internet TV dramedy explores life in a Wall Street firm

CHEVY CHASE, Md., Nov. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Take two geeks, plunk them down in a Wall Street hedge fund, add an eccentric boss and a demanding spouse, and you've got "Wall Geek." The new web series, created by Erik Mueller, airs at http://wallgeek.com.

Daniel, played by Erik Mueller, is a geeky quantitative analyst. His coworker Paix, played by Tara Garwood ("Lovely Molly," "The Invasion"), loves peace and yoga. She wants to "help people and make lots of money at the same time." Daniel's boss Sam, played by Michael Gabel ("Homicide: Life on the Street"), has a big ego, but a great heart. Daniel's wife Debra, played by Julie Mun ("Past Life"), wants to live a life of luxury.

"The series was inspired by jobs I had at investment banks after graduating with degrees in computer science," Mueller says. "Some of these things may seem a bit outlandish, but similar things happen all the time on Wall Street."

In the first episode, Sam leaves to start his own fund. In the second episode, Debra asks Daniel for $100,000. In the third and fourth episodes, Paix has a brilliant idea for increasing karma in the world, and Paix and Daniel take the idea to Sam. In the fifth episode, Paix and Daniel launch a stock exchange for "niceness." In the sixth episode, Paix threatens to leave the firm. In the seventh episode, Debra wants to trade up to a new house.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
