DePaul: Thursday was a long day and thus no blog post. DePaul University’s Coleman Entrepreneurship Center had their gala event and gave out several awards. Congrats to Chris Campbell of Lakeshore Branding and Greenwerks, Jen Moran of Greenola and Ben Meader of CareerHook. Also congratulations are in order to my friend Bruce Leech of evolve who was named the Coleman Foundation Catalyst Award Recipient.
Business Strategy: Tim Ferriss talks about a book by his friend, Alan Webber, called Rules of Thumb: 52 Truths for Winning at Business Without Losing Your Self. In the article, he has an excerpt of the book, RULE #24 – If you want to change the game, change the economics of how the game is played. After reading this, I need to read the entire book.
Behind the Scenes: We all remember the heroism of Captain Chesley Sullenberger in the saving of US Air Flight 1594 on the Hudson River. What we have never seen until now are the pictures of the plane as it was recovered from the chilly waters of the Hudson. Photographer Stephen Mallon was there and photographed the scenes for Wired.
Fun: A fun new toy to play with, but one that has significant potential to be a solid research tool is Wolfram|Alpha. Gina Trapani played with it and wrote a multi-faceted review.
