Entrepreneurial Learning 2.0 Navigating the Coming Disruption in How We Learn To Innovate Google Tech Talk December 15, 2010 ABSTRACT Presented by Dr. Alex Bruton. Imagine graduating from college or university today. Sure, youd have free access to useful information like no generation before yours has ever had, and all the tools you could dream of for producing and sharing information as readily as it can be consumed. No, you may never need to pay for a long distance call, a travel agent, an encyclopedia or a web developer. And yes, before too long the businesses you start would be able to house and scale all of their data and software in the cloud, at next to no cost. But as enabling as all this might be, it wouldnt guarantee your success (or the success of the companies at which you would work) and could even be a disadvantage if you (or your bosses) have grown up learning in a traditional education system. Whole industries from music to journalism to education are being disrupted by the very forces that make these advances possible. The facts seem to indicate that the top 10 jobs to be in demand in 2010 didnt even exist in 2004 and that that people graduating this year could have up to 14 jobs before they turn 39. And its becoming clear that different ways of thinking are needed now than even 10 years ago in order to be creative and efficient enough to turn the flow of information into knowledge that can create sustained value in our society, businesses and economy. The solution to these challenges is one part toolset and large part mindset, and enabling ...

MadRat Games speaks at TiE Entrepreneurial Summit 2010
Entrepreneurial Mobile Hand Wash And Detail Entrepreneurs are all around us. I drove to my neighborhood food market and spotted an entrepreneur in action. His pavement sign reads: Winston's Unlimited Hand Wash and Detail (see video for cellphone number). His truck logo reads: Power Washing, Gutter Cleaning, Window Cleaning, Residential & Commercial. His business is licensed and brings the service to his customers at location of their convenience (work, residence, etc.). After I came out of the food market, he waved me over and we spoke for a few minutes. He shared these elements of his business success: in business for 20 years, married for 16 years, six children, caring for his family is important, and he does it for Jesus, who guides him through his imperfections. He offered that the wash-and-detail business in Raleigh is competitive, that it is better to choose mobile over a brick-and-mortar location...but if you can manage both, that's good. I will add, based on our conversation and assessment: knows the neighborhood from past exployment, developed his customer base on a first person level, knows how to meet and greet the public, is confident of himself and the service he offers. Disclaimer: This is the first I have met this gentleman. He was kind enough to send a few minutes talking with me. I hope I have faithfully presented him to you.
