In my view, entrepreneurial judgment is the ability to tell the difference between a situation that’s not working but persistence and iteration will ultimately prove it out, versus a situation that’s not working and additional effort is a destructive waste of time and radical change is necessary. –Marc Andreessen And thanks to Aran for pointing […]

i am with tunes. after spending two weeks with only 4 gigs of music (thanks to my mom for lending me her nano) i knew it wasn’t sustainable. yes, i had checked the gym before i left, but the staff person i checked with was a substitute (the actual staff was on vacation) and couldn’t […]

This morning I got an email forwarded to me from my [soon-to-be Polish] friend Erin. Her friend, Eric, was looking for a home for a Hello Kitty “hand” Massager.
