Information Super Gas Tank

May. × ’11

TechStars has been a fairly rapid series of ups and downs. I love completing tasks.  I love crossing things off to-do lists.  It gets the endorphins rushing.  An entire sheet of paper with things crossed off is my ten-miler.   Like this? Share it!

1 week * 2 hours = gift to Bears Care

Oct. × ’10

Last week I received inspiration from The Corporateprenuer. I decided to take the 5 hours, 5 weeks challenge. I’ve been in the market for an Android phone for quite a while, but instead of just running out and satisfying my consumer urge I decided to set up a risk/reward. Like this? Share it!
