Good executive advice, from serial startup executives, might be the key to what really works.

When you're wondering why Austin?? you have to appreciate that the explosive growth of tech and tech investment in Texas is largely the result of NW Austin where capital, technology, and tech professionals really dominate the scene.

I had the honor of speaking at the +Freelance Conference about figuring out your mission and vision - something as simple as why, who, where, what, when, and how.   Simple?  Almost.  Start with why and where.
As entrepreneurs, founders, consultants, and freelance professionals, our understanding of where we work is critical to knowing the market in which we find ourselves, the culture and work ethic of professionals therein, and why you have a role.

Are semantics important? Are you really an entrepreneur or are you a small business owner, partner, or CEO?

Exploring home automation this weekend.   #diy  
Curious about automating your home? Probably not, it seems expensive or complicated. All because the industry has been thinking Apple, not PC. Astounding no? When you consider that Apple today is considered the easier path to technology. It's the history of the computer from which we need to learn. Here's how to get started right.

Maybe they're upset that I recently cancelled a subscription? Who knows. Thanks for digging me out of the trash.
