“Redefine Entrepreneurship”: It’s the “Who”, not the “What” that matters. cc: @Babson

Our friends at Babson College have asked us to help out on their new campaign, “Redefine Entrepreneurship”. [Catch the backstory here, and watch the video here to get a rough idea etc etc.] It’s a simple enough idea: If they can own a new idea of what entrepreneurship is, or at least, be a prime […]

techcrunch party

Last week I was in Silicon Valley for the annual Techcrunch Party. As usual (this is my fifth year in a row doing it) I designed the commemorative poster for them, which I hand-signed at the event. I thought my “delusional” motif would be perfect for it. I also attended the CrunchUp conference earlier that […]

The cartoon is all […]

daily bizcard 02: pam slim

[“Permission”. You can buy the print here etc.] Entrepreneur/Author Pam Slim did such a good job guest blogging for me the other day I thought, why not? Give the gal her own daily bizcard. She gave me some themes to work with: freedom, claim your own authority, you don’t need permission. I went with the […]

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.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

Len Schlesinger
Former President, Babson College

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

Tony Hsieh
CEO, Zappos

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
