The Expanse: Season 5: 12/16/20

In the category of all of this has happened before, and will happen again. I read The Legend of Bagger Vance yesterday and then watched the movie last night. The book is much better than the movie, and the book is really, really good, even if you don’t care about golf at all. And, since I don’t care about golf, I am comfortable stating...

1000 Holograms on Your Desk

“Either this is madness or it is Hell.” “It is neither,” calmly replied the voice of the Sphere, “it is Knowledge; it is Three Dimensions: open your eye once again and try to look steadily.”  -Edwin A. Abbott, Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions Anyone who has read this blog knows that I’m not a fan of prognostications. In a collision of complex...

@bfeld v55.0

Simply begin again. A year ago, I wrote in my v54.0 post that I’d decided not to have any goals for the year ahead. Instead of having goals, I wrote: I’m embracing the moment. Every moment. Simply being in the moment. Being present with whomever I’m with or whatever I’m doing. But that’s not a goal. I know I’ll drift – regularly – just...

Behold, Now As Ever

From Ryan Holiday’s amazing and wonderful book The Daily Stoic. Thanks Adam for the email exchange and for sending this to me today. The post Behold, Now As Ever appeared first on Feld Thoughts.

Can Do Colorado – A New Energize Colorado Project

During the Covid crisis, I’ve been regularly discussing the dramatic amplification of inequities that already existed. From a business perspective, some businesses have benefited during this crisis, while other businesses (and entire categories of business) are being wiped off the face of the earth. Here’s a blunt statement of what’s going on...

The Manipulation Machine

I’m tired (today’s Whoop recovery score of 15). Almost everyone in my virtual universe is tense, tired, frustrated, angry, annoyed, exasperated, irked, or outraged. Fortunately, the only person in my physical world – and there is only one (Amy) – is generally calm. While we each have our moments, our morning coffee resets both of us for the...

Help Support Black-Owned Businesses

A few months ago, Jasper Kuria reached out to me about a new non-profit he was starting called The Black-Owned Business. His goal is to create a community of vetted, high-quality Black-owned professional services companies. Like many things Amy and I have been supporting around racial equity; this was an easy yes. I have not historically paid...

Book: Becoming Monday

I read G. W. Constable’s near term sci-fi book Becoming Monday. If you are a fan of near term sci-fi, AGI, or the singularity, go get a copy right now – you’ll love it. I woke up in a customer service booth. Or perhaps more accurately, since I couldn’t remember a damn thing, my new existence began in that booth. If you’re born in hell, does that...

Startup Communities Audiobooks

The audiobooks for The Startup Community Way and Startup Communities, 2e are both available. I’ve gotten this request from many people, so I’m glad they are finally out. If you are an Audible listener, you can get them at: The Startup Community Way: Evolving an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem  Startup Communities: Building an Entrepreneurial...

The Liminal Space

I’ve personally been in a liminal space for most of 2020. Today, most of America is in a liminal space. The word liminal comes from the Latin word ‘limen’, meaning threshold – any point or place of entering or beginning. A liminal space is the time between the ‘what was’ and the ‘next.’ It is a place of transition, a season of waiting, and not...
