Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a little more crowded. Beautiful in so many ways: w...
With most college grads either unemployed or underemployed, it's hard to imagine that there is much hiring demand for recent graduates. But, as Bill Gates recently pointed out in a blog post, by 2025 two thirds of jobs in the U.S. will require education beyond high school.
An estimated 5 million jobs go unfilled every month because employers can't find people with the right skills. That's led some employers to partner with philanthropies, governments, and community colleges to educate existing employees so they can fill those openings.
My success is coming from a deep musk inside that you can't fake or manipulate. It's the essence of really caring about yourself and everything you do.
Illinoisans rarely are surprised when they hear bad economic news about the state. But a new study shows that Illinois scored high in one important a...
In 1976 Apple was started by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak (Woz). In 1985 Steve was fired, publically humiliated. For weeks Jobs spent time in his dark room. He didn't contact anyone. He didn't go out. He didn't eat much. We all know this isn't how the story ends.

You might never use it professionally, but it contains a lifetime of lessons. And the hardest problems, the ones that the top engineers are asked to solve, will sooner or later hit some foundational C code.
There are two big issues that startups in Austin face that I think stunt their collective growth. This is based on my time there (5 years of college), interning a short time at a local start up, having a few friends found local startups, and just general observations of the startup community.
