For book forty one of 2015, I enjoyed the book The $ 100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future.
An impressively good book, The $ 100 Startup separates itself and delivers what people really want vice what they need. To think about the actual desired outcome vice the piecemeal delivery which fails both customer and entrepreneur.
Follow your passion (smartly) and make sure you keep those costs low (smart frugality) are some of the extremely important keys the author, Chris Guillebeau, delivers in The $ 100 Startup and delivers well.
I really enjoyed hearing Chris’ perspective, ideas, and wisdom in The $ 100 Startup and absolutely recommend this book!
For book forty of 2015, I enjoyed the book Dataclysm.
I found the most interesting points of this book to be the data sets the author used from OkCupid.
The book brings up some very interesting points about the building data trend, the number of likes and shares of a website or posting, and the demographic data sets and how they break out in different sexes and races in the OkCupid data sets, is extremely interesting.
This was a very interesting and revealing read into what specific data sets can be used for and reveal.
Definitely a recommended read!
Sometimes the unexpected happens, tonight when walking back from dinner… it was this albino squirrel. Now I’m not sure how often you’ve seen an albino squirrel, but I’ve never seen an albino squirrel and didn’t know that albino squirrels even existed. So it was really a surprise to me when this albino squirrel darted across the lawn as I walked back from dinner. Apparently an albino squirrel is not as big a deal in the southeast portion of the United States [New York Times].
What unexpected surprise have you experienced?
