- Presentation Zen: [Bill] Gates, [Steve] Jobs and the Zen aesthetic. This excellent analysis comparing the presentation styles of both (sprinkling some Zen philosophy in as a framework) offers some valuable lessons. The comments that follow offer additional food for thought.
- Online Resources Small Businesses Shouldn't Live Without offers a beefy list of links for entrepreneurs.
- An interview with Jason Fried of 37signals by Business Week that seems focused on Jason's "doing less" philosophy ("under-doing" the competition, "one-downing" them). Nothing new (esp here where I can't seem to go a week without some Fried worship) but interesting nonetheless.
- Kathy Sierra over at Creating Passionate Users has an insightful missive on the tendency for passionate user to forgive almost anything. "Forgiveness is relative. We diss Windows with impunity, but when our Mac does the same thing, well, geeez nobody's perfect."
- Newsvine and How Big Companies Can Innovate offers some great advice on how bigger companies (any company really) can foster the innovative spirit (with Google as the poster child). (Frankly, reading through that just reminded me why I work for myself.)
- Interview with Entrepreneur hero Guy Kawasaki where he discusses brand advocacy and the second bubble. The interview is too short (grab his book, reviewed at right for a much better dose) but offers some tidbits. "The goal of a lot of online marketing is to get bloggers and networks talking about a product. The best way to do this remains creating a great product."
Thanks for all the free resources on this blog.Lots of great stuff.
