    A Smart Bear: Startups and Marketing for Geeks

  • On the value of Judgement

    8 Jun 2015 | 9:30 am
    We’re told not to judge, lest we be judged. But we are judged, by our customers choosing between us and a competitor, by our employees choosing whether to entwine their careers with our fate, and by our peers, allies, and passive-aggressive antagonists on social media. We’re instructed to respect others, especially other cultures. And it’s true that new perspectives yield new insight, and that we’re generally plagued with a bias against the unfamiliar, especially when it’s convenient for our egos to deny that a new idea is superior to our own. But battling our emotional distain of…
  • Scaling by “delegation” isn’t good enough

    24 Feb 2015 | 9:00 am
    Founding a company is a selfish act. It will consume every waking moment for the next 1-10 years. It’s an act of defiance and irreverence towards competitors and the status quo. That matches well with the life of a 20-something — fueled by the energy of youth, too young to be jaded, with no financial or social dependents. Not all selfish acts are bad ones! Young founders may fancy themselves wizards of coding, design, and salesmanship, because they’re individually excellent; I did! But it should be obvious that those skills don’t imply they can build a team of 75…
  • Fermi estimation for startup business models

    13 Jan 2015 | 9:45 am
    Early in a company’s life, you don’t know anything. Often your best estimate of any metric or market behavior or business model component is at best accurate within a power of ten, for example “expected conversion rate between 0.5% and 5%” or “cost to acquire a customer between $50 and $500″ or “average monthly revenue per customer between $20 and $200.” Estimating with these extremely wide ranges can be surprisingly useful. In physics it’s called “Fermi Estimation.” It’s useful because it’s easy to get to a…

    Do New Year’s resolutions work? Studies say “no.” Maybe asking good questions of yourself is a better way to lift your eyes to the horizon of possibilities for 2015. What good questions have you not taken the time to ask? For boot-strappers: How could you double your take-home profits without additional hires? (Hint: it’s usually increasing price, not cutting costs.) Since money is precious, it’s wise to save but unwise to save so much that it hurts the business, so what’s the single most impactful thing you could spend non-trivial money on? For example,…
  • The wrongness of relativism

    16 Dec 2014 | 9:30 am
    Instagram had 13 employees when they sold for a billion dollars. Was there any startup founder who didn’t feel depressed when that happened? Yes, depressed. All those years of toil and sacrifice, the pain of scaling a complex organization and a complex product, scratching and clawing for revenue growth month after month, and you’ll never have that sort of exit, and 26-year-old Kevin Systrom did it in only 2 years, with 13 buddies, with $0 in revenue, never having had to worry about gross margins or hiring at scale or making sales calls or running out of money. “It’s…

    Director Paul Feig just released a photo of the uniforms for his upcoming film Ghostbusters starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones. The famous jumpsuit has a few changes, but stays true to the original with the color scheme and patchwork. Orange stripes have been added to the chest area, but other than that, it seems unchanged. There seems to be no last names stitched on it, but it could be hidden by the flaps in the photo. #whatyougonnawear — Paul Feig (@paulfeig) June 29, 2015 What do you guys think of the new suit?

    2 Jun 2015 | 10:43 pm
    Escape Rooms are a hot new entertainment trend popping up all over, the way cupcake shops did a few years ago.  They may be a fad that won’t last, but for those of us who are fans, there’s a wealth of options right now.  Part of the fun is trying different companies and seeing the different approaches as they all try to stand out from the crowd.  For my latest attempt, I checked out the Story Room by Two Bit Circus. First, a bit of background on Escape Rooms, for those who aren’t yet familiar with the concept.  A team of people, usually 4-6, is given a brief…
  • Real Live Superheroes?!

    21 Apr 2015 | 1:17 pm
    Superheroes have been dominating the box office for several years now.  Each new release is greeted with eager anticipation, and some of the biggest movies of all time have been in this latest wave of comic book adaptations.  The Avengers currently holds the record for biggest opening weekend over, and third biggest domestic box office of all time.  Superheroes have started becoming more prominent on the small screen as well, with TV shows on the major networks, not to mention cable and new media outlets like Netflix.  In short, it’s a superhero’s world out there. And those…

    I was on my mobile, playing the sequel to Where’s My Water, a slick and challenging little game from Disney that pops up an ad every now and then to get their revenue. One ad in particular was for a new platformer based on the Star Wars Rebels animated series. It’s a limited, 4 level taste of the full game, available for $4.99 that has mixed reviews. Admittedly, I just scanned the star ratings in the play store without actually reading the reviews posted, but I downloaded and played through the sampling. The app is pretty good. Excellent graphics and sound. The gameplay is mostly…
  • Best Picture Nominee Round-Up 2015

    Ryan S. Davis
    9 Feb 2015 | 2:13 pm
    I have been lucky enough again this year to have seen all of the Academy Award Best Picture nominees.  Because none of them got their own review, I am going to once again provide a short, one-paragraph review for all eight nominees in alphabetical order. American Sniper: The most financially successful movie to ever open wide in January, this is the most widely-seen nominee.  It can be political, but no matter your leanings, there’s something here to support your point of view.  Which in a way, means it feels free of political motive.  It’s got something for everyone, unless…

    In 1983, to coincide with the (then) final chapter of one of the biggest film franchises in history, arcades across the country prominently featured both stand up and sit down versions of Atari’s Star Wars Arcade Game. It’s a first person, on-rails shooter that places the player in the shoes of Luke Skywalker as he pilots his X-wing Fighter through a barrage of Tie Fighters, hostile artillery towers and finally down the iconic Death Star Trench in glorious color vector graphics. I loved it. Still do. Home versions have never been able to do it justice because of its unique yoke…

    Well, well. Mr. Stine. Can I call you R? No, that sounds silly. I’ll just call you what I’ve always called you: R. L. Stine. I’ve been meaning to write you a “Thank you letter” for nearly 15 years. Now that I’m turning 30, I’m realizing just how important you were to me growing up. I wanted to write you a little note of gratitude. I remember seeing your books, the “Goosebumps” series, for the first time in the book store.

  • Incorporating toys into a small apartment design.

    When Mark and I visited his parents last week, and they kindly tried to send us home with all of his childhood toys, how could I resist! Mark has a large collection of 80’s memorabilia… Ninja Turtles, Ghostbusters, Beetlejuice, Pokemon, Power Rangers, and so much more nostalgic goodness. My challenge was to incorporate them into the design of our home, using the walls, and so it wouldn’t look too cluttered. In a 600 square foot apartment, using wall space in the design is key. I had Mark install a long shelf along the ceiling so I could display all the toys. It’s hard…

Last winter I went on another search with little luck, except for vampire/parlor larps. Needless to say, my opinion was that this was simply unacceptable. About a week went into exploring various DnD, RPG and fantasy sites and groups and the answer was always "No idea, try next doors.".Finally I decided that we will make our…
  • Setting up a common armoury or newbie stash or however you call it.

    At a certain point, I should say above a certain number of people - a larp group grows beyond the point where you know everybody and can pay attention to everybody. There would also be a sort of population boom - the bigger it is, the more folks will start coming.Now what I'm going to argue about is the benefits of setting up a common armory with spare kits for the new guys. Lets be reasonable most of them start with nothing. You don't want folks with jeans and T-shirts and we've grown beyond the point where everybody is everyone's friend who'd teach him how to craft his stuff. Not to mention…

    Daniel Clowes has become one of the pillars of indie comics since he started Eightball way back in 1989. I was all of six years old when this came out, but discovered his work when I attended college 13 years after he started this long running series. Luckily I discovered it at an age where I could appreciate the vulgarity, the maturity and the complex point of view. It wasn’t until it was collected in this complete collection that I realized the man was using comics as a soap box and to read his 15 years of thoughts in one collection is an experience, but does it hold up? Is it worthy of…

    As is normally the case for a penultimate episode, “And Hell Itself My Only Foe” was a bit intense. Although a beautiful episode with the continued characterization that has been the focus of season two, I am still reeling from the ending. Of course, I shouldn’t be surprised by anything with this show, but the potential for losing so many beloved characters has me feeling Caliban-style melancholy. Indeed, this was a very dark episode. The opening with the tag-team murder between Ethan and Vanessa of Ethan’s wolf victim was a little strange, but effective. It was a jolt…

In an alternate world where synthetic humans are commonplace, we are treated to very separate outlooks on the morality and necessity of artificial intelligence. The episode opens with Joe Hawkins, a harried father of three whose wife, Laura, is out of town for work-related reasons. Struggling to balance his full-time job with managing the household and his children, he decides that he needs help and rushes off to buy a synth. I was surprised…

    After the drama of the Puppy-tinted Hugos, the Locus Award finalists are an abrupt departure from that list. On the short fiction front, there isn’t a single finalist that overlaps with the Hugo nominees. More interestingly, these finalists do not overlap at all with the Nebulas, either, so this year we have three completely different set of finalists for these three awards, each of which takes a different form to reach its nominees/finalists. So while the Nebulas are voted on by the professional writers of the SFWA, and the Hugos by attending and supporting members of WorldCon, the…

    I received a copy of Letters to Zell in exchange for an honest review, and though it took me a day (and about a third of the novel) to really get into it, in the end I finished it in about two days. Grittier retellings of fairy tales have interested me since I first read Gregory Maguire’s novels – and that was quite a while ago. While Letters to Zell isn’t as gritty as Maguire’s writing, it’s certainly not the “Happily Ever After” that’s usually shoved down our throats. The main reason it took me a while to really get sucked into this book is…

    Nothing much happened in this week’s manga issue of Naruto Gaiden – The Seventh Hokage in terms of plot because it was quite action-oriented. Seeing Sakura fight it out with Shin was a treat, and Salad revealed some of her hidden powers. Naruto Gaiden – The Seventh Hokage: I’ll Protect You more or less cemented the fact that even if Karin was revealed to be Salad’s biological mother, in the end Sakura was still her ‘real’ mom. I still highly doubt that Kishimoto made Sasuke have a child with Karin, but even if I’m wrong, it’s good to know that Sakura has a very special place…

    How many passwords do you have? 20? 200? Or do you just have one single one for all your logins? If you don’t use a strong and unique password for every website, you should use a password manager. The typical password manager installs as a browser plug-in to handle password capture and replay. When you log in to a secure site, it offers to save your credentials. When you return to that site, it offers to automatically fill in those credentials. And if you’ve saved multiple logins for the same site, it serves the choices up as a menu. Most also offer a browser toolbar menu of saved…
