Startups - Four Ways To Redefine Failure

Startups - Four Ways To Redefine Failure | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

What did Marty learn from starting four companies? Four ways how to redefine failure.

Marty Note
Wrote this piece just before the Internet Startup Summit in Raleigh. It shares my four startup "failures" and the hard won lessons learned. My money scorecard is just about break even and I've had amazing experiences, so "failure" isn't the way I think about my startup experience. As Eckhart Tolle says, "Whatever is happening is exactly what is supposed to be happening."

If you have great stories of hard lessons learned please share and I will curate into the piece on Atlantic BT's blog. Thanks. Marty

Blondie's New York - Curagami

Blondie's New York - Curagami | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

Blondie's New York
Blondie's New York on the Smithsonian channel stinks but in a good way. If you can't smell, feel and remember NYC in the seventies while watching Blondie's band members stitch their 20-million selling Parallel Lines album together you weren't there. I was and I remember. 

I remember the crime, grime and sense of hopelessness that seemed to have a choke hold on NYC. But the ART was amazing. In a tiny rat-hole of a bar named CBGB the Talking Heads, Ramones and Blondie was born, nurtured, taught and honed. The Smithsonian's documentary tells several stories simultaneously. 

One story is the city's rotting corpse infecting the air and spirits with the thick fetid smell of death and dying. Yet despite or maybe because of the retching, queasy  feel great art was made. Art that defined the city, the bands and us.
