Along with composers, architects, and writers, what hackers and painters are trying to do is make good things. They’re not doing research per se, though if in the course of trying to make good things they discover some new technique, so much the better. They seemed to think that hacking and painting were very different kinds of work– that hacking was cold, precise, and methodical, and that painting was the frenzied expression of some primal urge. ]]>

His interest in censorship and autocratic regimes led him to choose Chinese studies as his university major, rather than computer science. He managed to combine these two interests in Shanghai, where he works as Linux sysadmin, while watching the world’s most sophisticated internet control system from the first row. Workshop description: This workshop will lead the participants through deploying their own personal “internet gateway” using theStreisand project. As the project uses Ansible to deploy the server, basic introduction into Ansible will be given. A VPS (virtual private server) abroad is necessary for the deployment; attendants will be led to choose a provider that suits them the best, and then deploy the server on the spot. All components that Streisand installs on the server will then be described, pros and cons of different protocols that can be used to connect to the server will be weighted, and we will configure our devices to connect to the gateway. After the workshop, the participants will have: * their own gateway deployed on a DigitalOcean server, free of charge for two months (promo code will be provided; credit card registration still necessary), * basic knowledge of the Ansible orchestration tool, * ability to deploy a Streisand server and overview of what it installs and why, * knowledge about different encrypted protocols for private networking, * knowledge about what international locations have fast connection to China. Workshop structure: 1. Introduction of the Streisand project 2. Short introduction into Ansible 3. Comparison of virtual servers providers and locations 4. Every participant obtains a virtual server 5. Deploying Streisand on everyone’s new server 6. Description of available protocols 7. Connecting our devices 8. Tweak it: adding accounts, … This workshop can help you: Get better international internet connection in China, uninterrupted by crackdowns. Access the internet privately and anonymously. Get basic knowledge about Linux servers administration and Ansible. Meet fellow privacy enthusiasts. What to bring: Linux or Mac computer, or Windows with a Linux VM, or at least Putty SSH client. International credit card (to get a free server on DigitalOcean) or a Bitcoin wallet (to get a server If you have any questions, you can contact the workshop organizer.

创业训练营:团队活力和需求的发现 4月10日|Startup Bootcamp: Team Dynamics and Demand Discovery April

April 6th, 2016 § 0 comments § permalink

上海静安愚园东路28号3号楼一楼 新车间 屏幕快照 2016-03-30 下午1.21.08报名参加 Sign Up Time April 10th, 13:00 – 17:30 Personal Biography While earning his MBA from Stanford Graduate School of Business and Stanford, Alec Walker collected a variety of firsthand material from influential thought leaders in the fields of entrepreneurship, innovation, and management. Championing a method based on a combination of this material, he has helped a myriad of organizations around the world, including Y Combinator software startup SpinPunch, energy giants URS and AECOM in California and Shanghai, fast­-growing Silicon Valley money management firm Wealthfront, the Institute for Human Virology in Nigeria, Japanese health­tech startup Exmedio, Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide Group, and several leading universities in the US and Asia. His firm Inly works with accelerators and co-working spaces around China, helping empower startups with disruptive innovation and sustainable growth. Workshop Description Startups in China are working increasingly on new and unprecedented problems which lack their own specific best practices. As entrepreneurial innovation spreads, it becomes increasingly important to verify that demand actually exists for the new products and services being offered. In addition, because traditional research and planning are less helpful in predicting success in an environment of innovation, startup teams have wide variability in their implementation time and execution effectiveness. This workshop teaches the essentials of demand discovery for entrepreneurs and covers several tactics for efficient startup teamwork. Workshop structure 1) Startup Team Management. Nearly 2/3 startups fail for reasons related to internal conflict, and startups that adopt structured operations grow 3 times faster than competitors. Why does it help startups so much to maximize cognitive diversity in small teams? In this context, how can team members understand each other’s problem-solving approach, and manage conflict productively? This part of the workshop is based on research from Stanford’s professors George Foster and Lindred Greer, Tsinghua’s professor Ning Jia, and from Y Combinator. · The difference between productive and counterproductive conflict · The difference between feelings and emotions and relevance in startup teams · Team mate fault line analysis to predict interpersonal conflict · Adopting structured systems for operations while maintaining lean flexibility 2) Demand Discovery Clearly defined startup ideas preceding market valuation have only a 0.02% chance of success. Why is it so important to focus your startup on solving a clearly defined and data-supported problem? How can you quickly and cheaply discover and validate a real problem from actual users, and which users should you focus on? This part of the workshop is based on research from Inly, search optimization guru Gerry Campbell, Mosaic coauthor Marc Andreessen, and Stanford professor Andy Rachleff. · Overview of four methods to gather useful data from potential customers · How to compile data to inform your product development direction · Essentials of search analysis and competitive analysis · The eight second rule for product validation 3) Startup founder dating We’ll end the workshop at the next door beer bar with open networking for new entrepreneurs to pitch their ideas and find cofounders. You’ll have just three minutes each, with access to our projector if you need it. Alec will be timing you, and he will be very strict about the 3-minute time limit. After the pitches, people can mingle and discuss. This workshop can help you: · Find likeminded cofounders · Overcome the challenges of internal team conflict · Effectively utilize the diversity in your team · Set lean standards for startup operation · Discover how relevant your product or service is · Obtain feedback from users and adjust your business accordingly · If you are curious about new techniques from Stanford · If you want to understand trends in global startup analysis What to expect: This workshop will be predominantly interactive. Participants will be encouraged to engage with one another to solve problems under time pressure. There will be some team building exercises and some exercises that will teach content through experiential learning. There will also be some lecture to clarify the context and to solidify the learning. Who should enroll: The workshop is for new entrepreneurs and existing startup teams. The methods taught in the workshop will help to reduce planning time and increase the likelihood of project success. All who enroll are required to bring an open mind and a willingness to actively participate.]]>
