Internet Access Tip

Corrected RSS Feed

I can’t tell you exactly how I did it, but I messed up the RSS feed. Of course, if you are getting the feed okay, then you didn’t need this message. And if you’re not getting the feed, then you won’t get this message. :-)

The Art of the Start Video

An honest speaker will tell you that she has “on” days and “off” days. The result of a truly “on” day is a standing ovation. I had a very “on” day at TiECon on May 13, 2006. This is the annual meeting of The Indus Entrepreneur organization. I’ve provided postings of audio and video of [...]

The panel consisted of six students whose ages varied from fourteen to seventeen. It’s one thing to read about how they use technology, and it’s another to hear them [...]

One On One with Pierre Omidyar

My preview of Woz’s book, I, Woz, got me thinking about entrepreneurs who embody the “purity” of the process of creating great products. Another outstanding example of this is Pierre Omidyar, the founder of eBay. On September 5, 2000, I did a “fireside chat” with Pierre at a Garage event in London. Here is a [...]

Ten Questions with Dr. Joseph Chamie, Demographer

A few years ago I met Dr. Joseph Chamie at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. (This was back when I was “hot” and invited to the World Economic Forum.)
