Information Super Gas Tank

I’m continuing to work with Team Bushwhack from my recent Startup Weekend experience and we’re seeing some of the typical growing pains. Well, ‘growing pains’ might be premature.

May. × ’11

Business book overload

It’s been just over a month since I set foot in Cambridge, MA.  I wish I had been doing a better job of documenting the experience.  I hate to think of how much I’ve already forgotten. 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!
