Winning at Halftime Two

Posted by Bruce Peters

Some time ago I wrote a post describing the NBA’s Golden State Warriors highly successful approach to game “half-times”. Game after game they would dominate game third quarters. My post described their approach. It was a hallmark during their championship years.

Crisis as an Incipient Moment

Posted by Bruce Peters

An exchange with fellow members on the Jump-Starting Rochester Community site sparked my response that follows.  The article is titled Could a remote-work revolution spread tech outside its clusters?

Isn’t there a bit of a paradox at play? The article highlights the VCs actually taking their money and expertise to companies geographically located away from the traditional centers like Silicon Valley. This is happening at the same time as the trend/necessity for remote. There are a lot of other forces at play including reduced mobility. Some mix of the livable community, culture and business tech infrastructure (bandwidth, security, platforms,) will be  competitive advantages.

Certain and Solitary

Posted by Bruce Peters

Last week I wrote a post Plan B. Synchronicity prevailed and Plan B, by Anne Lamott, landed on my stack of books to read. I moved it to near the top a couple of weeks back after reading her Stitches. I’ve long been a fan of her writing. So moving Plan B to the top of the pile was an easy call.

Facing me in my office is the above image of Bob Dylan.

There is another image of Dylan, my personal favorite, “Forever Young” which has been a personal sort of mantra.  A post on that theme I leave for another time.

“Times They Are A-Changin” occupies front and center right now. When it appeared that the pandemic was inevitably headed our way, I like most began to think about What is our Plan B? The question that started in the background, now begs front and center, to be answered.

Jump-Starting Rochester: The New Narrative Part 3

Posted by Bruce Peters

In New Narrative Parts 1 and 2, I wrote about  the opportunity for our Rochester NY Community  to actualize our potential as the #1 innovation technology hub, as earned and recognized in Jump-Starting America.

The challenge to our community and to each of us who care is, how to actualize this potential. In my last post, I labeled Gruber and Johnson’s designation as a gift to us. What will we do with this gift?

Jump-Starting Rochester: The New Narrative Part 1

Posted by Bruce Peters

We're #1

Before the year end, prior to taking a pause from work, I wrote the article that follows to our fledgling "Jump-Starting Rochester" Community.
 
I post it now as it sets the context of our communities designation as the potential # 1 location to become a technology/innovation hub. 
 
The New Narrative Parts I and II are about creating, that is, co-creating the story we would love our children and grandchildren to tell about this time in our community and the role each of us will play in that story. Hope that you will read and consider. Part I today. Part II to follow.
