On Wednesday, I'm running up 86 flights of the Empire State Building for the Challenged Athletes Foundation, and to do one final fundraising push, I'm offering up ad slots in my next two newsletters. For a $250 donation to charity, you can get a blurb about your company or service posted in one of the next two weeks' newsletters. Just reply back and we'll set it up.
For anyone else interested in contributing, you can click from my instagram profile link, because I suspect that gmail doesn't like the charity link for some reason and puts my newsletter into the promotional tab when I link to it. Besides, I take nice pictures of things sometimes, so why not follow me anyway?
You should start a blog or start writing on Medium.
You've probably told yourself that 1,000 times. But what are you going to write about? And what if it doesn't come out professional enough?
Enter BEMAVEN. BEMAVEN's service already helps NYC's top startup leaders create, publish, and promote original blog posts — in just 10% of the time it would normally take them, and with better results than they could achieve on their own. You get your own editorial assistant that interviews you, composes and edits posts, and publishes them, for less than the cost of two visits to a personal trainer at the gym.
The first 25 people from this list who sign up to try BEMAVEN's 'Entrepreneur' plan in the next 48 hours will get:
- A 100%, no questions asked money back guarantee during the 60-day trial period
- A 1-on-1 blogging strategy session ($250 value)
- A 25% discount ($600 per year value) off of the monthly subscription price, forever
- Ready to get started? Email firstname.lastname@example.org and he'll get back to you immediately with the discounted signup link and next steps.
Do you know what you should never ever ever do? Elevate a situation.
In the startup world, bad stuff is going to happen. People are going to get upset.
You have a choice to either make the situation calmer, smarter, and more thoughtful, or angrier, personal, and unhealthy.
You'll have lots of disagreements, but is jabbing with personal attacks the right tactic? Threatening to walk away?
And yelling... yelling never really solves anything.
Be the one who turns the gas off, not the one who pours it on the fire.
In the wake of the news of Birchbox layoffs, here's a good article about reorgs as you grow written by a product manager at Artsy. It's not always a smooth ride up and change is enevitable.
President Obama pledged $4 billion to make computer science education availible for every student--but money isn't the most immediate bottleneck. Teachers have no path to certification in this area, and there is no standard curriculum. It's a good directional move, but there's still a lot of groundwork to be done.
Here's a fascinating article on why the system isn't working for average Americans... and it isn't either side of the aisle that's at fault. It's just a really dumb economic principle we adopted in the 70's and have been promoting ever since.

We've got two talks this month on the Cake-Provider Pattern and Scalaz's Task (for concurrency). The meetup starts at 6:30 (pizza and beer will be provided by Bold Radius) and the talks will start at 7:00. The Cake Provider Pattern by Brian O'Clair: This talk will discuss dependency injection, what is the cake-provider pattern, and how to implement it in your own large software project. Scalaz's Task by Aleksandr Ivanov: During this talk we’ll discuss an alternative to asynchronous programming, leveraging core abstractions from the Scalaz concurrency library, which gives us more fine-grained, resilient flow-control. In this talk i’ll try to cover an alternative approach to the mentioned issues, based on the scalaz.concurrent. Task algebraic type. We’ll discuss how it's different from standard Futures, it’s pros and cons and try to answer the question, should we care at all? This talk might be of interest to you if you have strong performance requirements, exception handling and stronger type-safety.
