I hate to add to the droves and droves of commentary and confusion around the fact that our economy is, well, not doing so well.

business
29 May 2008

In a post today on Not An MBA, they evaluated the business side of coworking. And to be completely honest, I’m a little bothered by the category that we’ve been put into. We seem to be pushed aside in favor of the critically “for profit” models in terms of sustainability.

On Civic Entrepreneurship

business
16 May 2008

Geoff and I were out chatting about some things last night and in conversation I mentioned the term “Civic Entrepreneurship”. The word came out of my mouth nonchalantly, and frankly, I’m not sure where exactly I’d heard it before, or if I was using it in the appropriate contex...

The last few weeks have been VERY good to IndyHall and some of our other grassroots creative friends. One of the leaders of those groups, Blake Jennelle, asked me about the response from press. He asked if the recent spot on CBS Morning News, or the Philadelphia Business Journ...

beginning 2008 with a dream

business
02 Jan 2008

I don’t consider January 1st the official start to the year because for myself, like many many others, it’s more like “national hangover day” and not really how I want to represent the beginning of the year. So effectively, for me, January 2nd is the beginning of the new year.

I have no idea when I took such a strong liking to marketing, or markets, or strategy…but it’s been on my mind a lot recently so you can expect lots of stuff in this tone to come…I hope, anyway.

So the tech world was a-buzz with two things yesterday. One, GMail FINALLY added IMAP support, making Gmail USEFUL on the iPhone. God bless. More on that as I find quirks, both positive and negative.

Just a quick thought from my attendance of my sister’s high school graduation tonight. Before I go any further, I’ll send out a congrats to my sister, since I’m very proud of her surviving the shithole of a hometown I grew up in, coming out normal, and moreover, taking the plu...

recruiters that “get it”

I’m admittedly not a big fan of recruiting agencies/head hunters. I was pleasantly surprised when I met MaryHelen Votral and the CM Access crew back in September at Creative Camp and saw a completely different kind of recruitment process.

the next 6 months have the potential for a lot of work to cross my keyboard…most of it, out of the scope of things that I can do on my own. I’m looking to team up with sharp, creative, driven individuals who are experienced but also are interested in learning new things. Desig...
