    This past Saturday I had the delight of volunteering as a team coach at STEP-UP Achieve’s High Tech Innovation Day, held at CoCo’s downtown office in Minneapolis. High Tech Innovation Day is a one-day experience for high schoolers interested in careers in technology where they hear from a career panel as well as a speaking coach before inventing and presenting pitches of their own. If you’re a current CoCo member I highly suggest that you consider coaching a team next year. Here are seven reasons why: 1) Support the work of STEP-UP. STEP-UP is a job readiness and placement…

    The History of the Gulag: From Collectivization to the Great TerrorBy Oleg V. KhlevniukAs part of my research into the early Soviet context in which activity theory was developed, I picked up this book. Like The Gulag Archipelago, it examines the development and social impact of the brutal penal system that thrived under Stalin; unlike that book, it was written after the fall of the Soviet Union and with access to archival records that document the Gulag's development and operation. Thus the book is far more heavily documented than Solzhenitsyn's masterpiece and allows us to understand some…

    Interviewed by: Isabel Novoa What is your occupation? I am a senior sales director for iSpot.tv. I run sales for the central part of the United States. The company tracks all nationally airing commercials in real time. It’s awesome because nobody else does this. We track associated search and social activity as a function of TV airings. The idea is we can show folks who are buying media on TV which networks and creative outlets are going to work for them the most. What made you choose to work at Link? I worked at home for 10 years and hit the wall. It was great at first and then it…

    I'm seeing something similar, although I don't have enough data to really offer much to the conversation. I know one of our APs keeps dropping down to 100Mbps so I think it has a bad cable. I also see a fair amount of channel switching going on. I've left things on auto hoping it will figure

    Dan Phan, Founder of The Late Majority If you were the only person in your department to survive a layoff, what would you do next? Most of us would thank our maker and cling desperately to the paycheck. Unless you were Dan Phan, who after surviving “a round” promptly gave his notice. Dan has since launched a training and consulting business that specializes in a huge but much neglected market – late adopters to technology. He has also plunged right into membership at CoCo. I first met Dan when he attended Jump! Day and am proud to call him a Jump! success story (although he…

  • TWO calls for proposals on entrepreneurship

    Clay Spinuzzi
    13 Apr 2015 | 11:13 am
    Entrepreneurship is an important topic across a range of areas—from small businesses to big businesses, from for-profits to nonprofits, from technologies to services. Entrepreneurs have leveraged methodologies and heuristics, including a bewildering number of canvases and dashboards, as well as user research strategies such as Design Thinking. They present pitches, write business proposals, and conduct market research. They pivot, they make value propositions, and they draw on multiple sources and types of evidence.In other words, entrepreneurs are rhetors. They argue, persuade, and…
  • Reading :: Consciousness and Revolution in Soviet Philosophy

    10 Apr 2015 | 12:07 pm
    Consciousness and Revolution in Soviet Philosophy: From the Bolsheviks to Evald IlyenkovBy David BakhurstDespite the title, this book really is mainly about Evald Ilyenkov, who is regarded as among the best of the Soviet philosophers. Not that that's high praise—Soviet philosophy doesn't have a good reputation, largely because it was severely constrained by the dominant Soviet ideology. But Ilyenkov, like Vygotsky, made a genuine effort to build on the ideas of his predecessors rather than to be constrained by them. And Ilyenkov, like Vygotsky, ran into resistance because of this.Soviet…

    Essential Works of Lenin: "What Is to Be Done?" and Other WritingsEdited by Henry M. ChristmanThis review is part of my ongoing investigation into the roots of Soviet activity theory. I did not anticipate having to read Lenin, but he is cited extensively by Ilyenkov and less so by Leontiev, and his legacy certainly impacted the Soviet Union. Below, I attempt a thumbnail sketch of the following works in this volume: What is to be done?; Imperialism, the highest stage of capitalism; and The state and revolution. I won't cover The development of capitalism in Russia except to note that…

    The Theory and Practice of Cultural-Historical PsychologyEdited by Seth ChaiklinThis 2001 collection is drawn from papers presented at the Fourth International Congress for Cultural Research and Activity Theory. In his introduction, Seth Chaiklin acknowledges the "risk that this volume could end as an incoherent set of chapters" (p.20)—as so many edited collections turn out to be. I'm not going to pass that judgment, but due to my current interests, I'll only discuss two of the 15 chapters.Chaiklin, S. (2001).

    Wow where did the time go! It feels like only a couple of weeks ago I was sitting down with Lindsey and Liz in an interview for an internship with Link Coworking. Funny enough I wasn’t even vaguely familiar with the term coworking and now find myself talking about coworking everywhere I go! When I speak to my friends about coworking they always seem to say, “Oh so it’s like an adult coffee shop” but this doesn’t even begin to explain coworking. Liz, Lindsey and Link have done so much for me and I couldn’t be more grateful for this amazing experience. Interning for Link has taught…
