Words of advice to inside sales people prospecting busy CEOsnc expat

Thu, 21 Feb 2013 12:54:04 +0000

If you’re an executive at a company and are in any way accessible, you’re on the receiving end of dozens of email pitches for products and services every week. Most of these come from what are known as “inside sales” people, i.e. sales people who start at the top of the funnel to find qualified […](image)

Why liberal arts education matters: the story of a Drucker (mis-)quotenc expat

Sun, 03 Feb 2013 14:50:19 +0000

When I did the Pando Monthly interview last week, I was asked to talk about the one thing I believe that almost no one else believes. I said that a liberal arts education is as important, or even more important, than a math and science education (here’s the clip). Some people thought that I was […](image)

Fri, 01 Feb 2013 23:09:43 +0000

This Pando Monthly interview last week in NYC is easily the longest recorded interview I’ve ever done (one hour 45 minutes) and covers a wide variety of topics: my early days at Etsy, how we think about the IPO question, the importance of a liberal arts education, my first post-college job at Pizza Hut, my […](image)

Why you should support Occupy Sandync expatirsOccupy Sandy - Alliance for Global Justice

I have been following Occupy Sandy and am both amazed and moved by the efforts of those who are organizing and helping. I’m writing this blog post for people who might be skeptical or even hostile towards a self-organized group of relief workers under the Occupy banner to urge you to reconsider.

LBJ on the use of powernc expatLBJ_civil_rights

Fri, 06 Jul 2012 12:47:44 +0000

The Years of Lyndon Johnson, Robert Caro’s five-part (though the fifth has yet to be written) biography of LBJ, is an incredible chronicle of a truly complex leader, one who clearly cheated all along the way to the presidency but also showed incredible leadership in passing landmark civil rights legislation. This passage from Caro’s fourth […](image)

Thanks, Dadnc expat

The past year has undoubtedly been one of the most deeply interesting years of my life. Being a first-time CEO and turning 40 (just on Friday) have been two major events in the past year, and throughout it all, I’ve been thinking a lot about my dad’s incredible influence on my life. As I was […](image)

Continuous Deployment and Basketballnc expat

Sat, 21 Apr 2012 22:54:24 +0000

Anyone who knows me well knows that I love basketball and I love documentaries, so basketball documentaries are the best. Today, I watched one from ESPN’s excellent 30 for 30 series, “The Guru of Go,” produced by Oscar-winning director Bill Couturié. Here’s the synopsis: By the mid-1980s Paul Westhead had worn out his welcome in […](image)

In March of 2010, I got an email from Ryan Tate saying he was writing a book about skunkworks and experimental projects inside large companies, and he wanted to talk to me about Yahoo! Hack Day. Over the next year and a half, I did periodic interviews with Ryan. Ryan eventually asked me to write […](image)

My field notesnc expat

Sun, 30 Oct 2011 21:39:10 +0000

I spend quite a lot of time reading and linking disparate ideas together in the general course of my work, often when I’m trying to put something together — a blog post, a presentation, or an email about something I’m working on. Not all of the material is available on the Internet, so I have […](image)
