Big Bounce54Keeping startup founders out of court & jail - WORKSHOPGetting sued sucks. Getting thrown in jail sucks. Entrepreneurs aren't immune, and our high-rates of content production can actually exacerbate the problem. Chances are your startup doesn't have the runway to afford a protracted court battle. Or jail term.But fear not. You don't need to be a legal scholar to stay out of trouble. You just need your common business sense augmented with some easy-to-learn lessons, and you'll probably stay out of legal trouble. This week's #OOTatBB will give you those lessons with plenty of real-world examples that demonstrate what went wrong, and what could have been done differently.Open Office Tuesdays at Big Bounce (#OOTatBB) is a great way to network with other entrepreneurs, startup pros and noobs, and a cadre of disruptive-minded people! Use the time to meet new people and to switch your mind and body from "day-job" mode to "side-hustle" mode. We promise that you'll find us a friendly bunch always eager to meet new people! And yes, tell your friends!Keeping startup founders out of court & jail - WORKSHOP2014-08-26 18:00:004 
Big Bounce54Five Ways To Fund Your Startup's MVP "That sounds like a great startup. Can I see it?" -- The question dreaded by every early-stage startup.Let's face it: when someone asks that question, they aren't asking for a pitch deck or your articles of incorporation. No, they want to see something they can hold in their hands. Branding elements, signup page, initial website... all the way prototypes and mockups. You need to show, not tell.Chances are, you can't afford $60K or more to get those things started. This workshop will show you how to achieve what you need at various price points, hacking your way to developing an MVP you'll be proud to show off.Open Office Tuesdays at Big Bounce (#OOTatBB) is a great way to network with other entrepreneurs, startup pros and noobs, and a cadre of disruptive-minded people!

Big Bounce54There is more than one place to watch Google I/O 2014 here in the valley.

ePublish Unum - Education for Authors161,857The world of fiction and non-fiction books may not seem that different to readers, but there are good reasons few authors excel in both categories. But does that really need to be the case? Recently Jeff Moriarty made the switch from fiction to non-fiction author, and hit more than a few potholes along the way. If you've thought about checking out the grass on the other side of the fence, he has some survival tactics that could save you some of his headaches.On the next episode of The Books & Beer Hangout, we'll look at survival tips for fiction authors looking to enter the world of non-fiction.

Evo Terra769,953*Save the Date: No Pants Light Rail Ride 2014* Last year 350 people took to the Light Rail in Phoenix and took off their pants – and we’re doing it again! The 6th Annual No Pants Light Rail Ride is coming up on Sunday, January 12th at 1pm. This is part of the Global No Pants Subway Ride started by Improv Everywhere in 2002. What started as 7 people doing a prank on the New York subway has expanded into an international event involving tens of thousands of people in dozens of cities all over the world. The rules of the event are pretty simple – show up at the designated place and time with your light rail pass, take off your pants, get on the light rail, and act like nothing strange is going on. You have no idea why other people around you aren’t wearing pants. If you have trouble keeping a straight face, you may want to bring your earbuds and listen to your music. Warm or cold, rain or shine we’re doing this. As the date gets closer, we’ll bring you in the loop about where the starting points will be and where the group is meeting up. We had an awesome time last year riding the rail sans pants and meeting up at Angel’s Trumpet Ale House. Check out the photos and video from last year’s event to see for yourself.Phoenix No Pants Light Rail Ride 20142014-01-12 21:00:008 
ePublish Unum - Education for Authors161,857For many of us, indie or self-publishing follows the same flow as traditional publishing, but we're in charge. OK... but what if that's not the optimal way? What if we need to completely rethink the entire process? I'm not talking about cutting corners, but I am talking about a new concept called lean publishing?On the next episode of The Books & Beer Hangout, we'll cover this new process at a high level and give you our take on the process.

Evo Terra769,953How to stop doing things | Show Up SundaysIf you've noticed, my Google+ profiles shows me working at helping people figure out what not to do. Sure, that's a little flippant, but it's also fairly accurate. I've done a lot of dumb things the hard and wrong way in my time. But I've a knack for noticing that -- quickly -- and making the necessary adjustments in my approach to work smarter, not harder. And that's what I'll pontificate about on the next Show Up Sundays.▶ Got a question or show idea?

Not necessarily in that order.Grab your mate/coffe/tea and put something on to cover your bed head, and let's see what happens.Show Up Sundays with Evo Terra2013-07-28 16:00:0018

It's the reason for the season! Join +Ian O'Neill, +Tony Darnell, +Nicole Gugliucci and myself as we have some fun, debunk some nonsense, spin some science and cause a general ruckus in an HOA. We might even get some surprise guests pop in from time to time.I have no real time-line for this hangout, but have set it at 2 hours just because I arbitrarily decided it was going to be two hours long. It might not be that long, it might be longer. Depends on how the conversation goes. If you're watching and want to ask some questions or make witty comments, please feel free to do so.

ePublish Unum - Education for Authors161,857This week's topic: *No More Boring Book Videos: YouTube Strategies for AuthorsYouTube is the second largest search engine in the world, and over 4 billion hours of video are viewed each month. This has lured many authors to try their hand at making videos, with everything from outright commercials to cinematic trailers. Unfortunately, many of the videos are just not very good, and don't show much result for the author. So is there a successful approach to video for authors, or is it a medium they should avoid?On this week's show, we'll interview +Caleb J. Ross about how he is killing it as a "booktuber", and how he has sucessfully adopted video as a promotion tool for himself and his work.

We should be able to see both, including the Eagle Nebula, Swan Nebula, Great Globular Cluster in Hercules, Ring Nebula, the Andromeda Galaxy, and more.- If we're lucky, we'll also get a view from the other side of the planet, showcasing a live view of the +Sun and its current sunspots.(the image for this week's Event is the Eagle Nebula, captured by +Ahmet Kale, and a good example of the kind of stuff we'll see)You don't need any special technology to enjoy our star parties. Just join this event, and then you'll get a notification when we go live. Then you'll be able to ask us questions, request objects, and generally learn about astronomy and astrophotography as a hobby.See you on Sunday!Virtual Star Party - August 26, 20122012-08-27 05:30:00120

Dan Thompson2,147Here is my circle of writers.  My suggestion to you new G+ folks is to add the entire circle as its own circle, i.e. "Dan's Writing Circle".  Over time, move your favorites over into your own growing array of circles.In particular, though, I'd say pay attention to John Ward, Evo Terra, Nathan Lowell, Brook Johnson, and Jefferson Smith.2014-02-22 19:51:53249212

If you're a self-publisher who lacks good graphic design skills, consider using Canva.com for your cover designs.    It's a pretty cool graphic tool, free-to-use (although they do charge for some premium stock images).  The site is in beta now (the URL is up there, in the first sentence).

Here's a Pinterest with their sample covers:

On August 20th 2014, at 11:20pm, P.G. Holyfield — author of Murder at Avedon Hill — lost his very short battle with cholangiocarcinoma, a particularly vicious and deadly form of cancer. He was 46 years old.

Effective now and for the immediate future, 100% of all donations we receive to Murder at Avedon Hill or made directly in P.G.s name will be provided to a fund set up to help care for the three young daughters left behind. Normally, we keep 25% of all donations. But in Patrick’s case (Patrick is the P in PG) all proceeds we collect go straight to them, no admin fees.

http://podiobooks.com/title/murder-at-avedon-hill/

To say that we’re saddened and shocked by this is an understatement of the highest degree. A giant P.G.-sized hole is left in the lives of his extended family, to which I am deeply honored to be a part of. If you’ve listened to his work — here orin various ... more »

Leave the love out of your next venture.

"Do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life." -- Said by many, implemented by no one.

As an entrepreneur -- or maybe just an "advanced hobbyist" -- you're probably already thinking about your next project. You're keeping tab on trending concepts, funded startups, and disruptive patterns all around you. You're looking for the classic Venn diagram overlap points between what someone wants, and what you want to deliver. And if you're following conventional wisdom, you're looking for more than a want: You're looking for love.

Looking for love in one of those bubbles is fine. It's the one on the left, the one that indicates the thing that some people love. But looking for love in the other -- the thing you love doing -- is often a fool's errand.

Looking for love in one of those bubbles is fine. It's the one on the left, the one that indicates the thing that some people love. But looking for love in the other -- the thing you love doing -- is often a fool's errand.

Anyone who tells you they love every single aspect of their venture is either lying to you or lying to themselves. Every venture -- and I mean every venture -- has its boring side, aspects worthy of procrastination, and attributes you find downright loathsome. Every. Venture.

Stop looking for love. Instead, look for something you won't hate doing. Avoiding things you hate is a much stronger force than the attraction toward things you love. (Just don't tell my wife I said that!) When the next potentially lucrative idea comes to you, examine it critically. There will be parts of the job you don't care for. Just make sure none of them are things you'd hate to do, or hate yourself for doing.  

(Hat tip to my friend +Dave Slusher  for the motivation behind this quick post!)___

Hacking the sleep cycle with coffee & naps -- together?

I've never been one to follow the "we'll sleep when we're dead" movement. But over the last few years, insomnia has become a near constant companion. The studies in this article might provide me a solution, because I'm a raving fans of mid-day napping. And the concept of chugging a cuppa beforehand is just incongruous enough to appeal to my contrarian side.

(No, I haven't tested the veracity of the claims, but they appear to come from reliable sources.)

Are you an author for the right reasons?

I'll share with you a secret: I really don't consider myself an author. Sure, I've had a couple of books published by Wiley. Yes, I've indie-published a few more. And yes, I write long (sometimes dreadfully so) diatribes on Google+, LinkedIn, and (formerly) my blog. All of that is authorship. Yet I don't personally identify as being an author. Because personal identity is fucking weird.

However, my friend Matt Wallace is an author, and a damn good one at that, with a wicked knack for imagery and prose that makes me envious. 

The linked article is for anyone who is or wants to be an author. Because you may be in it for the wrong reasons. Matt isn't.

I love everything about Apple Watch, except...

... one thing.

There's a lot to love about the device from a hardware build perspective. The inductive charger is elegant and very Apple. The ability to deliver taptic feedback beyond simply vibrating on the wrist, including directional control, is smart and ground-breaking. The digital touch screen that (among other things) lets you instantly send quick sketches to another person is at first glance cute, but at a deeper glance seems highly personal and gratifying. Most of all, the photo-sensing pulse detection should rival existing fitness tracking devices, if not beat many of them outright. The software integration, including Apple Pay and some new native cool fitness apps seem solid. I think I might even get used to the hodgepodge home screen. I love, or could learn to love, all of those items as well as a litany of other... more »

There's a lot to love about the device from a hardware build perspective. The inductive charger is elegant and very Apple. The ability to deliver taptic feedback beyond simply vibrating on the wrist, including directional control, is smart and ground-breaking. The digital touch screen that (among other things) lets you instantly send quick sketches to another person is at first glance cute, but at a deeper glance seems highly personal and gratifying. Most of all, the photo-sensing pulse detection should rival existing fitness tracking devices, if not beat many of them outright. The software integration, including Apple Pay and some new native cool fitness apps seem solid. I think I might even get used to the hodgepodge home screen. I love, or could learn to love, all of those items as well as a litany of other cool features announced this morning.

Except for one thing. And it's summed up in one of Tim Cook's final comments at the unveiling: "The Apple Watch will redefine what people expect from a watch."

You know what I don't need, Tim? A watch. I have a watch. Several in fact. Some I wear on my wrist. Another sits in my pocket. My computer keeps a watch in my face all the time. In one 360-degree sweep of my living area, no less than four devices show me what time it is, and two more will the second I turn them on.

That's what I didn't want from Apple. Another watch. Keeping in mind my praise above, it doesn't change the fact that this device follows the exact same form-factor path that every other electronics manufacturer is taking with their smart watches. And that's why I'm disappointed by the Apple Watch. It's the opposite of a revolutionary form-factor. Apple didn't slap a keyboard on the iPod when they made the iPhone. But we're supposed to be satisfied with 1/2 an iPod Nano dressed up in fancy wrist straps? Please.

Perhaps the delay in production -- "early 2015" is all Tim would tell us -- will give them time to course-correct. Perhaps calling this the Apple Watch instead of the iWatch means there's room for something new and truly revolutionary to come close on the heels of this placative device. Maybe (probably) this is a defensive move, as Android Wear has a half dozen or more devices with similar form factors. And all of them dissatisfying to me.

Yes, it's probably a bitch to get flat components into a piece of curved -- truly curved and not just beveled or slightly morphed -- glass. Hell, it's probably hard to get artificial sapphires to curve. But I don't care. My inner petulant child wanted something greater from Apple today.

No, you don't have to move your startup to SF!

My friend +Marcus Nelson is the a poster child for entrepreneurs and startups everywhere. But he's bailed on the Bay Area, and for all the right reasons.

Marcus does a good job of busting some of the myths surrounding startups and the perpetual call of San Francisco. Perhaps it ain't all it's cracked up to be out there?

(Not, obviously, to disparage any startups currently rocking the house in SF or the surrounding area. Rock out with your stocks out!)

Marcus does a good job of busting some of the myths surrounding startups and the perpetual call of San Francisco. Perhaps it ain't all it's cracked up to be out there?

(Not, obviously, to disparage any startups currently rocking the house in SF or the surrounding area. Rock out with your stocks out!)___

No, an asteroid won't wipe out life on earth Sunday.

Well... at least not this asteroid. Though 1/10th the distance between the Earth and Moon sounds really, really close, it's still 25,000 miles from smacking us. 

That, and this one is only about 60 feet in size. I say only with somewhat of a smile, as that's roughly the same size as a 3600 sq ft home. So... not all that small. 

Most interesting/disturbing: It was discovered four days ago. So no, this one won't kill us all on Sunday. This one. But we really, really need to get our eggs in more than one planet-sized basket. This is why.

I can only assume that timing this campaign to end right before the last holiday of Summer helped them raise $11.4 million dollars.

Ask for $50K - Get $11.4 million.

Surely it's not that easy. But if you need a cooler with a built-in blender, charging station, and just about anything else you'll need while you're not next to your kitchen... there's a crowdfunding campaign for that.

Only 35 days remain. Who's in with me?

35 days to The Beer Diet, Take Four!

The clock is ticking, and we know three things:

1) I'm probably not going to die, if the last three Octobers are any example.

2) Two local breweries -- Sleepy Dog and The Perch -- are brewing special beers in celebration of the diet.

3) The +Food Babe probably won't care much for my diet, even though I'm not a fan of Starbucks, either.

But I'll make it.

Entrepreneurial ghost writer needed.

Some friends of mine in the startup scene here in AZ are looking for a ghostwriter. They've got a budget and an outline, and they need a talented ghostwriter with experience in the entrepreneurship/startup space.

* If you're interested, email me. Be sure to provide links to your cred.
* If you know someone who'd be perfect, make an email introduction.

I need to turn this around quickly, so please reach out to me before August 29th.

Another reminder to get the hell out of my inbox.

For the last five years or so, I've had an on-again, off-again policy of checking email three times a day. And that's it. But it's hard to stay the course. Reading articles like this get me back on track. Here's the key takeaway:

Every status update you read on Facebook, every tweet or text message you get from a friend, is competing for resources in your brain with important things like whether to put your savings in stocks or bonds, where you left your passport or how best to reconcile with a close friend you just had an argument with.

If you want to be more productive and creative, and to have more energy, the science dictates that you should partition your day into project periods. Your social networking should be done during a designated time, not as constant interruptions to your day.

Email, too, should be done at designated times. An email that you know is sitting there, unread, may sap attentional resources as your brain keeps thinking about it, distracting you from what you’re doing. What might be in it? Who’s it from? Is it good news or bad news? It’s better to leave your email program off than to hear that constant ping and know that you’re ignoring messages.

I'll be good for a few weeks. Then I'll probably fall back off the wagon. Practice makes perfect.___

On August 20th 2014, at 11:20pm, P.G. Holyfield — author of Murder at Avedon Hill — lost his very short battle with cholangiocarcinoma, a particularly vicious and deadly form of cancer. He was 46 years old.

Effective now and for the immediate future, 100% of all donations we receive to Murder at Avedon Hill or made directly in P.G.s name will be provided to a fund set up to help care for the three young daughters left behind.

Scifi nerd question: Is Fringe worth my time?

I have a love/hate relationship with scifi tv. To push me more to the LOVE side, I require two conditions be met before I start watching a series:

a) It be complete
b) People (plural) with opinions I trust say the ending was worthy

With those two things in mind... leave your opinions in the comments.

Being the intrepid digital entrepreneur I am, I keep pretty good tabs on my brand. A few years back, I found Acelious, a deviantArtist, had created a character with my name. Clearly, it's random chance, as I don't look this good in a bikini top.

From time to time, I get notices regarding new images he(?) posts of my character. I like this one. Seriously considering getting a tattoo of it. But where?

Vitamin K shots for babies: Not optional.

I feel like I'm surrounded by death. I know it's confirmation bias, but it doesn't help when the penny's f lipping tails this many times in a row.

Death is a part of life. With one exception, death was (or soon will be) a mercy for every friend/family of mine recently. Too young? Sure. All of them, in my opinion. But death happens. And unless you're an insurance actuary, age isn't a factor.

Unless, of course,  you're talking about babies unfortunately born to parents so ignorant that they decline the Vitamin K shot. That's inexcusable. That's the real tragedy. Stupidity should hurt. And I concede they feel significant pain when their child bleeds to death. But there isn't a reset button. Spread the word. And slap the living shit out of any anti-vaxxer you encounter. For me?

** Artificial machine intelligence.* Not a computer that plays chess. Not Emu. But a non-organic life form, either that we create or that emerges (the more likely scenario) out of something we've built. (And then we're probably fucked.)

Wanna take an Uber with me?

No, I'm not being creepy. Well, not any more than normal. Uber has just announced UberPool, a ride-sharing layer for their fantastic service.

Here's the use case I'm most interested in: How many times have you jumped in a taxi leaving a convention or other busy gathering, and you've wondered "gee, I bet some of these people are also going to the same aiport/hotel/bar as me"? If you're anything like me, the answer is ALL THE FRIGGIN TIME.

UberPool solves that, and then some. By figuring out who else near you is going to the same location (same route, maybe?), it's able to reduce everyone's fare on the ride. 

Genius. Now hurry up and get to Arizona, +Uber!

DIY cover design? Use Canva.

I'm on record many, many times as someone not afraid of chastising clueless authors who think they can produce their own cover. 

But some of you remain convinced you can do it on your own. And then there's the whole "lean publishing" concept that remains intriguing to me.

So I'm sharing what +Gareth Skarka recently posted. As a completely and unabashed non-designer, I'm a heavy user of Canva for some of my business stuff. I've not used their service to create book covers, but this Pinterest board shows what can be done.

Word to the wise: Canva won't make you a designer. Pick a template you like, and try not to screw with it too much. Just swap out text. Don't change fonts, size, positioning -- leave it the hell alone. 

If you're a self-publisher who lacks good graphic design skills, consider using Canva.com for your cover designs.    It's a pretty cool graphic tool, free-to-use (although they do charge for some premium stock images).  The site is in beta now (the URL is up there, in the first sentence).

Here's a Pinterest with their sample covers:

I'm on record many, many times as someone not afraid of chastising clueless authors who think they can produce their own cover.

Is there life on Mars?

Probably. Or probably not. You can find people arguing the possibility in both camps. The fact is that we haven't sent any devices to Mars to check for it. (Correction: The Viking program had this as an objective, but the results were inconclusive, at best.)

The ExoLance project aims to change that. They're running an Indiegogo campaign to raise the cool quarter of a million they need to build and test a prototype to test it. No, it doesn't rely on humans to be on Mars (the +Mars One project is working on that angle), and it doesn't require a sample to be returned to Earth (though several proposals are on NASA's desk). Shoot, stick, search, and surprise is the motto of this non-profit entity.

I'll take "dead languages" for $5000, Alex.

First they came for apropo, and I did not speak out ...
Then they came for unique, and I did not speak out ...
Then they came for literally ... and there was no one left to speak.

On the other hand, it should make things awkward for those arguing for a literal interpretation of ancient texts.

A caged cactus.

I feel like this today. No, I have no idea what that means, either.

Me, on Dr. Feynman, on choosing which problems to solve.

What problem will you solve?

At the Big Omaha conference this year, Ev Williams gave this piece of advice: solve big problems. The irony of that coming from the  guy behind Blogger and Twitter beside, it's commonly accepted good advice when picking through your "what's next?" options. Focusing on big problems helps more than notoriety. It keeps you focused, limits your competition, and can contribute to the overall greater good if you're successful.

But not every startup and entrepreneur has to focus on alternate energy production, improving clean water access, or colonizing other planets. Of course not, simply because not everyone is equipped to solve the big problems we face as a species. Perhaps the advice of Richard Feynman is more germane in this instance: solve worthwhile problems. 

"The worthwhile problems are the ones you can really solve or help solve, the ones you can really contribute something to. A problem is grand in science if it lies before us unsolved and we see some way for us to make some headway into it. I would advise you to take even simpler ... problems until you find some you can really solve easily, no matter how trivial. You will get the pleasure of success, and of helping your fellow man... You must not take away from yourself these pleasures because you have some erroneous idea of what is worthwhile... No problem is too small or too trivial if we can really do something about it."

If you have the desire, skill, and ability to cure cancer --  go for it. But if your talents and skills lie elsewhere, think of the problems you can solve, pick the one(s) worthwhile, and put everything you have into it. As the late Dr. Feynman said, no problem is too small or too trivial if we can really do something about it.

You say "admits" like it's a bad thing.

It should come as no surprise that +SpaceX has grand designs on the solar system. You gotta start somewhere, right?

Technology haters have been here since forever ago.

I wonder what the pundits said when the first person to add stick and leather to a hand axe some 200,000 years ago? 

In 1858, People Said the Telegraph Was 'Too Fast for the Truth'  http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2014/07/in-1858-people-said-the-telegraph-was-too-fast-for-the-truth/375171/

"Anti-tech criticism isn't wrong—there are plenty of legitimate warnings about how the ease with which anyone can publish something today can exacerbate problems in accuracy and ethics. But that also doesn't mean previous technologies were inherently better, or that they'll ever reclaim their standing."___Technology haters have been here since forever ago.
