    Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders: Joshua Reeves 

    The Startup Journey: A Marathon, Not a Sprint

    Joshua Reeves, co-founder and CEO of ZenPayroll

    I love the Stanford Entrepreneurial Thought Leader Series! (“ETL”) So many smart peeps sharing visions. Payroll sounds important, but dull to me! But Joshua Reeves really has powerful insights into how things work and how we can achieve not just “success” but “satisfaction.” In the latter portion he talks about the importance of scheduling your time, “otherwise you’re just reacting to whatever’s happening.” I don’t know about you, but I spend so much time just reacting to whatever’s happening! He also notes that he assumes there are always 1,000 good ideas, so it’s never about “what can we do,” but about “what’s most important for us right now.” Again, it may be an “entrepreneurship” talk, but I think so many of his ideas apply to our never-enough-time art careers too.

    Intro 2 Haptics & The Hapkit 

    I’ve decided to give the Introduction to Haptics course from Allison Okamura (Instructor) & Melisa Orta (Teaching Assistant) at Stanford / Stanford Open EdX a try. A core element of this self-paced MOOC is assembling Stanford’s low-cost “Hapkit.” It’s a 1-degree of freedom controller / force-feedback device.

    Let’s Play!

    Anybody in a Virtual World want to join in? It’d be cool to have 2 of us (or 3 or a bunch) make these and integrate them into in-world experience in some way. Perhaps actually using in-world data pipelines, or using a parallel connection that’s not in-world but can live-sync to avatar activities. I have no idea how to do any of this or what the possibilities or limitations might be, but it sure seems like a fun thing to poke around with.

      Van, I’m interested. Here are the bullet points that I feel most resonate with “us”:

      Connection and explorations of portable identities and pseudo-identities
      • Distributed experience and storytelling through multi-dimensional user
      experience design
      • Crowd-sourced information production and human-based computation

      And here are the questions that I think “we” can best answer.

      Is the project artist-led and does it have artistic merit? YES
      • Does it produce an interactive experience that can be presented in the
      public space of the museum (which may include virtual/online space)? YES
      • Does the project suggest models, methods, and/or data that may be of
      interest to other artists and technologists? YES
      • Does the process proposed by the artist include opportunities to present
      demos, prototypes or collaborative opportunities for the public during the
      development period? YES

      The directions are pretty straight forward. With whoever is interested, we can split up the sections and answer them, or we — whoever is interested — could each write responses, and then we could massage the responses into a single app.
