Over the last few weeks, two articles stirred up a lot of conversations around an identity crisis here in Boston: “The Road to Awesome” from Scott Kirsner and “Dear Boston: Stop Outsourcing The News” from Galen Moore. Both articles (essentially) discuss how Boston needs to be cool like Silicon Valley and create more consumer tech companies. read more…

Playing with Fire: FourSquare, Facebook and Platform Threats

I love Foursquare.

It’s as simple as that honestly – I love it. I have been an active Foursquare user for quite a while. Certainly not an early adopter, but during the last many months, I have experienced quite a bit. From Boston to Washington DC, San Francisco to Tokyo and NYC to Beijing – I have been busy checking into places every chance I get and am amazed at the number of people and venues that Foursquare is tracking.

For instance, I’ve earned and lost Mayorships for several locations, but have had a great experience. As I travel quite a bit to Beijing for Yottaa, I’ve checked into numerous places in China. For some time I was Mayor of Mao LiveHouse in Beijing, which was a great night club that has since shut down. Even months after closing, I remained Mayor! Luckily that was one achievement for which I didn’t have to keep fighting.

Currently I have 11 friends, received 11 badges, and am still Mayor of Yottaa HQ in Cambridge. The wonderful @forjared has either given up challenging me for the title or given up on Foursquare altogether.

Can Entrepreneurs Be Made?

2010 February 27
by Coach Wei

What are the unique characteristics of entrepreneurs? It is a subject that I think about from time to time. Over the years, I identified a few patterns and I use such patterns in judging whether someone can be an entrepreneur or not.

Here are the patterns that I identified and use:

  1. Strong will power: Someone who is persistent in his/her pursuit and won’t give up easily, whatever the pursuit might be. It is not entirely accidental that a lot of entrepreneurs are avid long distance runners because long distance running like marathon is more about having a strong mind than anything else.
  2. Relentlessly resourceful: Someone who is able to figure out how to make things happen against all the odds. Someone who would try from many different angles and perspectives in order to achieve a goal and take failed attempts as input for finding better ways.
  3. Passion. Starting a new business is hard, and you’d better love it for what it is. Having the passion for solving a particular problem and being compelled by the vision of how better the world would be if the business succeeds are the key reasons that one would get up every morning and fight against all the odds to make it happen.
  4. Intelligence. Someone who is highly intelligent. Intelligence is the basic foundation upon which everything else is built. Passion without intelligence is called romance. And it is a good idea to stay away from those with strong will power but without the smarts.
