Five years, building a culture, and handing it off. - Laughing Meme
Nothing we know [ about X ] should be assumed to be true. // Technology is the product of the culture that builds it. // If you want to build for the long term, the only guarantee is change. Invest in your people and your ability to ask questions, not your current answers. Your current answers are wrong, or they will be soon. // Software development should be thought of as a cycle of continual learning and improvement rather a progression from start to finish, or a search for correctness. If you aren’t shipping, you aren’t learning. If it slows down shipping, it probably isn’t worth it. Maturity is knowing when to make the trade off and when not to. // You build a culture of learning by optimizing globally not locally. Your improvement, over time, as a team, with shared tools, practices and beliefs is more important than individual pockets of brilliance. And more satisfying. [ anti-Rock Star dev philosophy ] [ book by Red Hat CEO Open Organization ]

Jessica Lahey’s ‘The Gift of Failure’: A Fear of Risk-Taking Has Destroyed Kids’ Love of Learning - The Atlantic
When Success Leads to Failure. The pressure to achieve academically is a crime against learning. [...] Above all else, we taught her to fear failure. That fear is what has destroyed her love of learning. [...] Is that what we want? Kids who get straight As but hate learning?

Don't fear failure, unlock your inner creativity, and say yes | Don Dodge | TEDxAthens - YouTube
risk of failure greater than the chance of success. // Success is not final, failure is not fatal. Courage to move forward, counts. Move every day. None is giving you a free ride/lunch. // achieving 60% of the impossible is better than 100% of the ordinary! // NO TO INCREMENTALISM !!! // there are lots of people that you cant, and we teach conformity and not being a rebel, disruptor & creative. thus we create filters and cynicism. // we are very good at saying no ... no to fear, anxiety, the uncomfortable & the pain (the ability to grow), new experiences, // thus pattern matching. // Failure is not an option. Keep trying till you get it right - figured it out. THE LEARNING CURVE! failure is steepest learning curve (entrepreneurship). Thus everyone needs to be exposed to failure and adopt a growth mindset as child. With each failure you get closed to your goal, in case you dont stop & dont make the same mistake twice! // Dream when you are awake. Do it. Say yes to life & opportunities.

The Top 6 Tech Skills You Need in 2015 | Inc.com
Technology is one area that no one in any industry can afford to grow complacent about--tech is changing so quickly that skills you mastered last year may already be outdated. In such a quickly evolving industry, information decays at a rate of 30 percent a year, according to Research in Labor Economics, rendering nearly a third of last year's tech-related knowledge irrelevant.

The revolution that’s changing the way your child is taught | Ian Leslie | Education | The Guardian
But the myth of the magical teacher subtly undermines the status of teaching, by obscuring the extraordinary skill required to perform the job to a high level. It also implies that great teaching cannot be taught. &! Carol Dweck: The power of believing that you can improve - https://youtu.be/_X0mgOOSpLU

Franchise redux: The professionalization of the sharing economy has deep implications | PandoDaily
But for all Airbnb and Uber’s much deserved “disruptive” acclaim, these businesses have older roots than the hype cycle suggests. According to conventional wisdom, Airbnb and Uber enable “regular individuals” to make a few extra bucks renting out an extra bedroom or giving fellow travelers a ride. They unlock a new class of assets, where fellow consumers share in collaborative consumption. In fact, while these businesses nailed rapidly changing consumer preferences  –  buying services at time of usage, rather than owning assets fits the post-recession, Millennial sensibility of the moment –  the supply side of their businesses does not match the narrative. Supply in these marketplaces is increasingly delivered by entrepreneurial, small business owners, not fellow consumers. Uber and Airbnb are best understood as reimagined franchise operations that leverage mobile data, the social graph, and continuous feedback loops to deliver a better consumer experience.

9 Women Cant Make a Baby in a Month
Those of us that espouse “lean startups” often do so from personal experience. We made mistakes ourselves that proved to us that you can’t make markets move faster than they inherently want to just by throwing more resources at them. Those of us that are willing to admit that we fawked things up in the first dot-com explosion and learned from our mistakes have the battle wounds to make more pragmatic decisions in 2011. It is encapsulated in one of my favorite quotes that I first heard from Bruce Dunlevie of Benchmark Captial,

Dont Bet Big. Little Bets Are The Ones That Turn Into Billion-Dollar Ideas
small bets are affordable and achievable ways to learn about problems and opportunities, while big bets are for capitalizing upon them.

Sarasvathy points to the value of what she calls “affordable losses.”  Seasoned entrepreneurs, she emphasizes, will tend to determine in advance what they are willing to lose, rather than calculating expected gains.  They don’t teach this in business school; just the opposite, in fact.  But the next new billion-dollar idea is virtually impossible to predict, even for a visionary like Mark Zuckerberg for much of Facebook’s early history.
