The Lean Startup

You're startup is building something that people really cares about?

If you like the video I think you'll love The Lean Startup book.

“The roadmap for innovation for the 21st century. The ideas in The Lean Startup will help create the next industrial revolution.” —Steve Blank, lecturer, Stanford University, U.C. Berkeley Haas Business School

"If you are an entrepreneur, read this book. If you are thinking about becoming an entrepreneur, read this book.  If you are just curious about entrepreneurship, read this book.  Starting Lean is today's best practice for innovators.  Do yourself a favor and read this book." —Randy Komisar, founding director of TiVo and author of the bestselling The Monk and the Riddle

And my favorite quote from the book: "Their challenge is to overcome the prevailing management thinking that puts its faith in well-researched plans. Remember, planning is a tool that only works in the presence of a long and stable operating history. And yet, do any of us feel that the world around us is getting more and more stable every day? Changing such a mind-set is hard but critical to startup success. My hope is that this book will help managers and entrepreneurs make this change"

Copiar libros de y hacia un kindle

El software libre que yo uso para transformar libros de otros formatos a mobi y asi leerlo en mi kindle es: Calibre

Desafortunadamente muchos de los  libros de kindle vienen con DRM, así que para copiarlos se dede usar software que se salte el DRM, yo uso el que aparece en Apprentice Alf's Blog y lo mas chevere es que una vez instalado en Calibre corre de forma automática.

Por cierto estoy vendiendo: kindle nuevos en Bogotá por $250.000
