Six Niche Visualization Blogs | eagereyes - 14 views

  •  
    I don't have to link to infosthetics or flowingdata, you know those. But there are many others that are not as well known, but often contain really interesting work.

Why Indian and Chinese entrepreneurs are leaving America | VentureBeat - 3 views

  •  
    As I explained in my last piece, skilled immigrants are leaving the U.S. in droves. This is because of economic opportunities in countries like India and China, a desire to be closer to family and friends, and a deeply flawed U.S immigration system. It doesn't matter whether we call this "brain drain" or "brain circulation"- it is a loss for America. Innovation that would otherwise be happening here is going abroad.
    With all the stories we read about weak infrastructure in India, authoritarianism in China, and corruption and red tape in both countries, the perception is that these entrepreneurs are facing major handicaps back home. They have no chance of competing with us, so we have nothing to worry about, right?

Justin Vincent - Introducing The Startup Guild - 4 views

  •  
    My idea is to create a system called The Startup Guild that is somewhat like a distributed and virtual version of YCombinator. The Startup Guild would use game mechanics to help track and match up participants into self supporting mastermind groups. As an analogy, if YCombinator were client-server, the Startup Guild would be a torrent tracker.
    The main premise of the guild would be to help entrepreneurs build their first profitable business via the unfunded route of bootstrapping, however there would be nothing about the guild to exclude participants from seeking funding or placement at an incubator.

How Wikileaks has woken up journalism. « Emily Bell(wether) - 5 views

  •  
    The idea that this is the first real battleground between the political establishment and the open web is very arresting. It also forces journalists and news organisations to demonstrate to what extent they are now part of an establishment it is their duty to report. Some like the Guardian, which has a long tradition of free speech attached to it, has been at the heart of disseminating Wikileaks cablegate information.

Aaronontheweb | The Myth of the Single-Person Startup - 9 views

  •  
    My objective was to take a month off work, shut myself away in my apartment, spend a month coding up all of the basic plumbing I needed to get the first core part of my service in working order, and profit. Needless to say, I failed to reach my goals,  but not for any of the typical reasons like poor project planning, lack-of-focus, and so forth. No, I failed because I took the experiences of other entrepreneurs too literally and tried to "be my own boss," without appreciating what that really means.
