“entrepreneurial agitprop”

[This is a "Cube Grenade" I designed for myself earlier today, as a little thought experiment etc.]

My friend, Robert Scoble wrote an interesting blog post recently, about why he was working for Rackspace, the big San Antonio web hosting service.

“To Help Entrepreneurs”. Apparently Rackspace allows him a lot of leeway to do just that,

And I also remember Michael Arrington saying something similar on The Gillmor Gang about his business. Helping the entrepreneurial community is a big driving force behind Techcrunch.

Then I was thinking to myself, “To Help Entrepreneurs” is ALSO a big part why I like designing Cube Grenades, why the idea can function as a proper business.

How? Because they work as “Entrepreneurial Agitprop” (That’s a phrase I just coined earlier today).

“To Help Entrepreneurs”. “Entrepreneurial Agitprop” . Both those ideas are resonating with me right now. Expect to see more from me on them both in the near future. Thanks.

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

Seth Godin
Best Selling Author

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.
