We all talk of the "Perfect World," a world of collaboration ... a world where we work together for the greater good - a world of synergy. Maybe we use this as example ... just maybe. ___________________________ I can be found on Twitter at @clayforsberg ___________________________ Related posts: The Medici effect Welcome to my … Continue reading Collaboration

Who’s not your community!

About ten years ago I took a road trip from Los Angeles to visit my parents in Montana. After a couple weeks, I departed via my sister's place in Nebraska. When leaving Christy's place, I thought I'd try something. What if I made it all the way home to Southern California without touching an interstate … Continue reading Who’s not your community!

And on the other, some profess in the unabashed free … Continue reading High unemployment is here to stay … so what are you going to do about it?

The government isn’t going to help you … so get over it!

I originally wrote this post two years ago but with recent developments in Congress recently, it is might be even more relevant now than then. This last Thursday, the Republican led voted to cut $40 million out of the food stamp (SNAP) over a period of five years. For literally thirty years, I voted in … Continue reading The government isn’t going to help you … so get over it!
