Profile Information

How did you find EOK?
Who are you? (family, school, work, hobbies, interests, dreams)
I am a writer, researcher, and entrepreneur.I write dense reports for entrepreneurs and executives who want to disrupt traditional industries and gain key insights to the shifts of culture and business. Interested in social/open/modern business design, and bringing my readers from "where do we start?" to "this is what we're going to do".

I've spent the last decade studying the movements and transformation of ideas, culture, and society. With my career spent mostly out of Academia, I've synthesized the principles and methods of philosophy and cultural shifts with those of entrepreneurship and business to create a unique perspective on how modern business should be run.

I love my wife and 2 year old daughter and try to spend as much time with them as possible.
What do you want from EOK? What are the top 3 items you need help with now?
1. Trusted business network.
2. Idea tank/mastermind group.
3. An atmosphere where I can find and add value.
How has EOK helped you?

Free 2 Days of Learning Code

Posted on September 27, 2013 at 10:51am 0 Comments

If you're like me, you may have known some code in the past or you've always wanted to at least get a cursory understanding of it.

Code School is a super cool resource from a startup based in Tampa, FL.

I've taken a lot of their free courses, but I came across this "Hall Pass" to get 2 free days of Code School to take unlimited courses.

Course paths include: HTML/CSS, Ruby, Ruby on Rails, Javascript, Node.js, and a few others.

So I forgot to share this earlier, but if you haven't checked out LaunchRock.com you need to.

In 5 minutes, I created a splash page/signup page for one of my projects:


For free, in 5 minutes, and it looks great, it's mobile responsive, has a direct plugin to Google Analytics.

Oh ya, and it's…


Great article on Startups & Accellerators

Posted on November 14, 2012 at 2:18pm 1 Comment

This seems to fall right in line with what Leo & Kathryn were talking about this morning.  

Outside of the major entrepreneurial hubs (Silicon Valley, NYC, London, etc.), there's just not enough deal flow to make investors (both Angel & VC) and accelerators as successful as they need to be.  

What the article suggests:  a not-for-profit entity educates the market, instead of tries to profit from it.  I wonder what that sounds like!…


Another network online - Mosaic Hub

This looked interesting and could be a great resource for startups to find other entrepreneurs/startups across the county.  So far only two members in Knoxville.  I just joined so I don't have a review for the community yet but it would be great if some EOK people joined and reviewed it as well.
