A reporter asked me what made for Sustaining Entrepreneurship in a company as it grows. I said, "Beats me," then offered 17 ideas. You'll find posted today my "SE17: Origins of Sustainable Entrepreneurship" (just 4 slides). Feedback welcomed!! (Make that "begged for.")
Will be talking about Design more than I normally do at a couple of upcoming events. Reread this weekend Virginia Postrel's masterful 2003 contribution: The Substance of Style: How the Rise of Aesthetic Value Is Remaking Commerce, Culture, and Consciousness. Hence, you'll find a 8-slide presentation consisting of excellent Virginia-isms [download the PPT here]; VirginiaP is also the subject of a Cool Friends interview posted on 13 February of this year. Message: DESIGN IS INEVITABLE! DESIGN IS THE DIFFERENCE! DESIGN RULES! (Dan Pink's forthcoming A Whole New Mind: "The MFA is the new MBA." Yes!)
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
