I’ve added two cool blogs to my COOL STUFF section. They’re a yin yang combo for innovators. They’re both of a legal bent, but from totally different points of view. Yes, I know, legal stuff. Bear with me here:
Patent Pending Blog: about patents. Obviously. This blog is a great reminder of how there’s really very little new under the sun. It’s good, clean fun, too — who wouldn’t want to read about Harry Houdini’s Diving Suit? And look at those gents in the illustration above. They’re cruising around in a rolling iron yurt, discussing the state of their stock portfolios. Think of it as a collection of Unabashed Gearhead Gnarlyness, Antique Edition.
Business Bankruptcy Blog: no, I don’t enjoy looking at traffic accidents. But this is important stuff for innovators know about, because business viability and sustainability are key to getting stuff done in the world.
I think if you make the Bankruptcy blog, VentureBlog, Feld Thoughts, and The Economist a part of your regular reading schedule, you’ll be way ahead of the new venture business curve.
