Do You Need To Be A Jerk To Be A Successful Entrepreneur? | TechCrunch

Do You Need To Be A Jerk To Be A Successful Entrepreneur? | TechCrunch | Barco Pirata | Scoop.it

I recently read Ben Austen’s WIRED article about Steve Jobs, which prompted me to put together my thoughts about the tradeoffs of being a successful entrepreneur. Austen’s article draws a caricature of Jobs and puts forth a series of false choices.

Mit: como em certas alturas que tenho contacto breve com jovens empreendedores, saio muitas vezes com uma sensação de nojo ético por aquilo que eles demonstram ser os seus valores, este artigo foi na mouche. Aparentemente, nem toda a gente come a biografia do Jobs sem mastigar.

Bariol, new font | Barco Pirata | Scoop.it

Bariol is a new font that can be downloaded for free.
I'm posting this for 2 reasons:

a) Romão, Xon and me all need good fonts in our daily lifes.
b) Bariol's site is a clean and smart example of how you can enhance a simple thing like a font. Getting it for free in exchange for a Twit or FB share is genius.

Seth's Blog: Art fears business fears art

The artist says, "that sounds like business, and I want nothing to do with it. It will corrupt me and make me think small." The businessperson says, "art is frightening, unpredictable and won't pay." Because the artist fears business, she...

I often think about this relationship between artist and business person. I think art is the conductor of the new common sense, the ideas that will seem legit in the near future. Business acts as a machine that makes art available to the common person. As Seth, when with business people I tend to talk about artistic desires and when with artists I tend to alert them for the business side of live, the need to do something that the world can use.

 

Interesting. At least for me.
