Austin Startup: Mentor Mentions Per Press Interview
Austin Startup just published.
watch the pattern of people who get mad at my sharing my secrets.
It is similar to the pattern of people who get mad at other people that share who their mentor is. I am not name dropping a VIP. I am citing and sourcing who taught me what and who facilitated knocking down barriers. This is all stuff that they don’t teach you at Stanford (pre-2010 in the business school, pre-2009 in the engineering school). I am firmly teaching at Stanford Engineering and teaching at the b-school via students who learn my Gua Gua and then reteach it.
The shitake works! (yeah, I just copy pasted Guy Kawasaki’s use of shitake — I go to his church MPPC)
Book smart people get furious at my street smart Gua Gua Guacamole method of getting more street smart.
See examples of the fury here on Quora: (Plot spoiler: they are all people with IQs double my 88. They all have masters degrees or PhDs. http://www.quora.com/Whats-the-deal-with-Larry-Chiang
See the example of the FURY when men witness men getting mentored by other men. Its on ESPN at the 3:15 mark http://www.facebook.com/larry.chiang/posts/111666838957588
Asian people and minorities get mad the most. Remember, I am chinese so I can be as honest as I need to be. See a critical metric for street smarts: Mentor Mentions Per Press Interview, MMPPI. A street smart, 6’5" hacked the NBA by exploding for 23 mentor mentions in his first three national press interviews. See Jeremy Lin for 13 mentor mentions on youtube: http://bit.ly/jlin710
To answer your question about who MVBP’d?! No one. Its too easy to do. It is way easier NOT to do.
General population wont do it.
For example: http://whattheydontteachyouatstanfordbusinessschool.wordpress.com/2012/03/06/got-press-pass/
I make my kids do the MVBP as I watch them http://bub.blicio.us/the-minimum-viable-blog-post/
Just like so many things I advocate, it works every time 95% of the time.
