Weekend Reading

February 20th, 2010 · 2 Comments

This week’s links:

  • The Real-Time Revolution: by Joshua-Michele Ross in Forbes.  “Why the real-time Web makes business sense.”
  • Raising money: by Joel Spolsky. When to go to VCs and when not to.
  • A ‘Stop Doing’ List: by Jim Collins (from 2003), via Atanu.”Suppose you woke up tomorrow and received two phone calls. The first phone call tells you that you have inherited $20 million, no strings attached. The second tells you that you have an incurable and terminal disease, and you have no more than 10 years to live. What would you do differently, and, in particular, what would you stop doing?”
  • Virtual Goods and the Power of the Rental Model: by Bill Gurley.
  • Rules for Radicals: from Saul Allinsky’s 1971 book. “What follows is for those who want to change the world from what it is to what they believe it should be. The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away.”
