Entrepreneurship is Our Revolution

Entrepreneurship is Our Revolution | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | Scoop.it

This inspirational post was written by Steve Blank,  who teaches entrepreneurship to both undergraduate and graduate students at U.C. Berkeley, Stanford University and the Columbia University/Berkeley Joint Executive MBA program. author of the incredible book "Four Steps to the Epiphany" and so much more.

 

I wanted to share an article before Thanksgiving that really spoke to me and the hearts of many. I have been looking for days and felt when the right one came along, I would know it. This is that piece. No disrespect to the author, I moved things around and broke up paragraphs into smaller bites. They were so inspiring they almost jumped off the page.

 

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. So grateful to have this platform and a wonderful community of fellow travelers on this path to share the journey.

 

Intro:

 

"This Thanksgiving season, it might seem there’s less to be thankful for. One out of eleven of Americans is out of work. Many pundits say the American dream is dead and see further decline of the West, particularly the US."

 

"When it's darkest men see the stars.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

My prediction:

 

"this decade may well be our country’s finest hour

 

the beginning of an economic revolution as important as the scientific revolution in the 16th century and the industrial revolution in the 18th century.

 

**This entrepreneurial revolution will permanently reshape business as we know it

 

**More importantly, change the quality of life for all who come after us."

 

**It’s possible we’ll look back to this decade as the beginning of our own revolution.

 

**It may even be the dawn of a new era for a new American economy built on entrepreneurship and innovation.

 

****Our children will look back on and marvel that when it was the darkest, we saw the stars.

Interview: MTV's Hive Editors - Role of Curation in Music Journalism & the Impact of the Web

Interview: MTV's Hive Editors - Role of Curation in Music Journalism & the Impact of the Web | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | Scoop.it
MTV launched The Hive to give indie music fans a better online experience by putting the latest and greatest in one place.

 

We recently talked with Shirley and Jessica Robertson, editor of MTV Hive, about the indie music scene, the role of curation in music discovery, and how the Internet continues to impact the music industry.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

YP: What is the importance of curation today?

 

JR: It’s incredibly important. This (music journalism) space is crowded and noisy, and curation and editorial voice is what sets you apart from everybody else. MTV was one of the original tastemakers in the music space, and we want to maintain that role today. We’re not restricted by genre like other sites. We hope to earn our audience’s trust and respect with our curation.

How to Make Marketing That People Love [Gapingvoid Cartoons]

How to Make Marketing That People Love [Gapingvoid Cartoons] | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | Scoop.it
Gapingvoid's take on inbound marketing [cartoons].

 

As explained by Pamela Vaughan for Hubspot, Gapingvoid "is a website created by Hugh MacLeod, who creates cartoons around 'social objects,' which Hugh believes are the "hard currency of the internet."

 

In his words, "social objects are the reason two people talk to each other, as opposed to talking to somebody else...

 

That reason, that “node” in the social network, is the social object." So basically, gapingvoid makes these awesome social objects in the form of cartoons."

 

In this article, Pamela curates 6 gapingvoid cartoons on the subject of Inbound marketing. 

 

All very clever and very amusing at the same time.  She also gives us a quote from gapingvoid.com, just to give you a taste:

 

"Traditional advertising doesn’t work very well. Sure, it tries, and tries hard, but most of the time, it fails."
