Midstage Startup Momentum

Anyone who’s involved in commercial real estate knows that it’s a big industry with an even bigger data problem. Fortunately, Cameron Steele and his startup Prophia are working to solve that problem.

Re-Sentimentalizing the Family, with Cameron Steele

People for A Living Moorabool Coordinator Cameron Steele

Mitchell's Front Page

People for A Living Moorabool Coordinator Cameron Steele spoke to the program about the issues affecting the river. “For many years People for A Living Moorabool (PALM) has been lobbying government for more water flows in Victoria’s most over-allocated river – the Moorabool,” the group said in a statement. “By the time the Moorabool River reaches to Batesford – if indeed it does – its flows have been reduced by 90% because of water authority dams and water extraction. Government figures show that over the last 15 years inflows into the river have fallen by over 20% due to the impact of climate change. ” “The Moorabool is in serious trouble.” The post People for A Living Moorabool Coordinator Cameron Steele appeared first on Mitchell's Front Page.

The cancel culture discourse has been noisy lately, but what is it about this moment that makes it uniquely terrible to be a public person?

Writer Cameron Steele joins Jessa to talk about surveillance, why everyone except those fully off the grid are justifiable targets for public rage (it is because of Gawker, kinda), and why reply guys should be relabeled circle of sycophants.  support this podcast: http://patreon.com/publicintellectual

Cameron Steele Off Road Racer And Baja's Biggest Ambassador

Slow Baja

"Long before social media, Cameron Steele was doing social media. He is one of off-road's early cross over pioneers, sharing his love for desert racing, adventure travel, and all things Baja with the world outside of the off-road community." -From his 2018 Off-Road Racing Motorsports Hall Of Fame Induction. A lifelong Southern Californian, Steele began traveling to Baja with his father, Baja racer Mark "Big Daddy" Steele. Big Daddy was a private pilot and the sales manager for Parnelli Jones. Jones asked Big Daddy to fly him down for his 1970 NORRA 1000 run. The following year, Big Daddy was on the grid himself in a Class One car, and by 1972, his family was riding along in their RV. After a stint as a competitive bodyboarder, Cameron began navigating races for Big Daddy. By the late 80s, Big Daddy retired, and Cameron moved into the driver's seat. He worked his way up from Baja Bugs to Trophy Trucks riding a few motorcycles along the way. In 2017, Steele set his sights on winning the 50th anniversary Baja 1000. Big Daddy, his wife, and daughter were with him as he planned to announce his retirement after the finish. He finished second. His retirement would have to wait. Sadly, Big Daddy passed a few months later. In 2018, with Big Daddy's ashes along for the ride, they won their first overall Baja 1000 victory. Racing legend Johnny Campbell calls Steele "Baja's biggest ambassador," and I must agree. When he's not leading his many off-road tours, you can find him hosting his Baja Beach Bash to raise money for the Rancho Santa Marta School and Orphanage. We met at Baja HQ, his San Clemente business that functions in equal parts as a tire and wheel shop, race prep space, travel and tour headquarters, shrine, and clubhouse for all his off-road amigos.
