January 2009 article up

It’s almost the end of the month – my March article is due in a few days and I realized I hadn’t yet posted my (published) January 2009 Focus Magazine article. So, here it is: Building bridges and start-up muscle in Victoria (PDF on Scribd.com).

I heart this one – it’s about design (constraints and affordances), our island habitat, building bridges, and using technology to stay connected …and to connect. It’s very much inspired by Ben Casnocha‘s article, Start-Up Town, about Boulder, CO (“…quiet little hippie city of Boulder, Colorado, has become a serious technology hub. Here’s how.”) Casnocha wrote a (the?) book on leading a start-up life.

As always, see this page for the complete roster of my Focus Magazine articles about Victoria.


  1. Glad you were inspired! Thanks for the link!

  2. You’re welcome! Let me know if you ever get to Victoria, and I can show you around here. There are direct flights from San Francisco now… 😉
