Whenever I listen to @SGgrc‘s GREAT lecture, it’s hard to stay unimpressed.
Harsh reality. If we can’t start being paid for how we worked, we’ll only be able to work for how it’ll be paid. How much creativity can we get from this? Having almost identical problem in software development, I cried watching this video.
“Life After Pi” is a short documentary about Rhythm & Hues Studios, the L.A. based Visual Effects company that won an Academy Award for its groundbreaking work on “Life of Pi”– just two weeks after declaring bankruptcy. The film explores rapidly changing forces impacting the global VFX community, and the Film Industry as a whole.
This is only the first chapter of an upcoming feature-length documentary “Hollywood Ending,” that delves into the larger, complex challenges facing the US Film Industry and the many professionals working within it, whose fates and livelihood are intertwined.
For every creative people, including entrepreneurs…
Introverts are eloquent, compelling, and persuasive writers. They are also intensely loyal and authentic. Therefore, their words deliver clarity. Case in point: Introvert Mahatma Gandhi was a prolific writer who changed the direction of an entire nation, and to this day, his beautiful prose inspires millions of people across the globe.
On your marketing team, you might think about how an introvert could help you create some in-depth, high-quality blog posts. Their focus on getting the right message across to the right audience at the right time could help you grow your traffic, lead volume, and even customer base.
PICK A LANGUAGE THAT FEELS RIGHT
Learn a language that has a community behind it and that has been a part of building successful systems. Learn a language that lets you create the kinds of systems you want to create. For me, I picked C# because I can write web apps, Windows apps, Mac apps, iPhone apps, Windows Phone apps, SmartWatch apps, and tiny embedded apps, but above all because I enjoy writing C#.
Write while you learn your new language. Write about what you discover, what works, what doesn’t. Write even though no one may be reading; you may find that they are reading. Join your new language’s community and go to its user groups. Remember not to have ego, you are not your code.
