Business Books and the Unreliable Narrator
The Unreliable Narrator is a literary device wherein the reader somehow discovers that the story's narrator is not entirely credible. It's not a technique for beginning writers, but in the hands of an expert it can add some fascinating depth to a story. It ...

Just Manage Harder
This Harvard Business Review post  nicely summarizes some of the fundamental problems of last-century management practices. The results: only 30% of US employees are engaged, and only 13% of employees worldwide are engaged, for some definition of "engaged."...

Coworking and Hackerspaces
During my company visits in San Francisco, I stayed with my friend Bill who lives right on the Bart line in Walnut Creek, so I was able to take that in and avoid the hassle of driving in the city and the struggle to find parking. For the visit to Github, I ...

Airline Pilot Hours
Frequent travelers may have had the experience of being delayed because a pilot's monthly hour allotment has been exhausted. I've even heard of people planning trips at the end of a month in order to get benefits when they get bumped. I've been bothered for...

My "Reinventing Business" Presentation Video from OSCON 2013
The O'Reilly folks have just posted the very-nicely-produced video of my "Reinventing Business" presentation . I'm quite pleased with the way it came out and feel like it's a good summary of my progress so far.
