For you ardent Sons of Anarchy fans, here’s a great interview from YouTube’s Reserve channel.
The Kansas City Startup Village (KCSV) is aglow with the announcement that Brad Feld, an early-stage investor, has closed on a house in Kansas City, Kansas (KCK) that he’s already dubbed the “FiberHouse.” Feld is also a co-founder of TechStars, a well-known startup accelerator based in Boulder, Colorado.
“I’m not going to be living in it,” he wrote on his blog on Wednesday. “Instead, I’m going to let entrepreneurs live / work in it. Rent free. As part of helping create the Kansas City startup community. And to learn about the dynamics of Google Fiber. And to have some fun.”
This is a great idea, and adds to the growing mountain of evidence that is spurring cities around the country to start demanding, planning and utilizing greater access to gigabit bandwidth. It’s certainly having an impact on both the internal and external perceptions of Kansas City.
There are a number of favorites that have entered the lexicon of jet setter favorites for their wonderful marriage of utility, durability, and style. Some that come to mind: A Macbook Air, the classic Zero Halliburton case, a pair of Bose Noise Cancelling headphones. We posit there is a well deserved addition to that list, the Bellroy Travel Wallet. With thoughtful features like ample width for boarding passes & tickets, an integrated micro travel pen and even sim card storage, this is a quality piece that will soon find it’s way into the pockets of those global nomads in the know.
Came across this one recently over at the Fast Lane Forum – great message here for the entrepreneurs amongst us.
