Hello incoming altMBA students! Congratulations on adding your name to the small but growing list of people who have decided to “leap” (as Seth likes to say) – to make the change you dream to make in your lives. Throughout the past month, as a member of the inaugural class of altMBA, I’ve felt extremely challenged at times, emotionally bare, getting the metaphorical crap kicked out of me by our latest prompt or challenge, and conflicted by what is comfortable and reliable (and boring and monotonous), and what is passionate and inspiring (and scary as sh*t). Scraping software, services and plugins sum up Since we have already reviewed classic web harvesting software, we want to sum up some other scraping services and crawlers, scrape plugins and other scrape related tools. Web scraping is a sphere that can be applied to a vast variety of fields, and in turn it can require other technologies to be involved. SEO needs scrape. Proxying is one of the methods which can help you to stay masked while doing much web data extraction.
The Startup Zeitgeist · The Macro Twice per year — once in the winter and once in the spring — thousands of men and women apply to Y Combinator. Each of these bright minds has his or her own vision of the future of technology. They pitch ideas related to Bitcoin, drones, new drugs, virtual reality, and nearly every other topic you could imagine. Since 2008, we’ve received tens of thousands of these applications. Collectively, they provide insights into the ideas smart people are working on and how it’s changed over time. Often we forget to frame what we want to really achieve in our innovation activity, instead we simply dive in and start innovating. I believe until we know what solutions we feel we need or the market wants, we will more often than not, end up disappointed in our innovation solutions. Simply generating ideas, for ideas sake, just does not cut it at all. In recent years our innovation understanding and its management have significantly changed, due to numerous factors that have been happening.

A New Theory of Time: X-tention is Simultaneously Discrete and Continuous Time has been conceived mainly as either discrete or continuous, but not widely as a simultaneity of the two. I would like to articulate a new theory of time in which time is reconceived as a ‘raw material’ whose natural state is both discrete and continuous. This is a “middle third” position that extends Husserl’s theory of internal time consciousness by being a new form of time in the middle between and connecting retention-protention (which are continuous) and recollection-expectation (which are discrete). X-tention is this middle kind of time, existing in a primordial state that is simultaneously discrete and continuous, with the capacity to solidify into either in the case of a specific situation. This is much like another fundamental physical element, light, which exists in a superposition state of both particle and wave before collapsing into one or the other per observation.

Communication Framework for Change Agents Change agents and their ideas are the life force of organizations. Innovation of all kinds is essential for organizations to grow and thrive; in fact, organizations that can more easily respond to new facts and conditions have a great advantage. In their book Super-Flexibility for Knowledge Enterprises, UC Berkeley’s Dr. Homa Bahrami and Carnegie Mellon’s Dr. Stuart Evans tell us that super flexible organizations are the most successful. These organizations have strong “circulatory systems” that foster idea flow, and they execute more dynamically.
