I’ve been wrapped up a bit this week and am on the road today, so I’ve been slow to get the word out about our latest program at Orbital, aptly called the Orbital 1K.
I wrote about it here via our Tinyletter.
The backstory is that the project, which originated in the Entrepreneurial Design class that Christina Cacioppo and I co-created in 2012, continues to be a potent tool for teaching people to launch. It creates an opportunity to learn about constraints, iteration, negotiating the unknown, building and leveraging networks, and much more, by challenging the students to work in public.
So, this Spring/Summer, we’re going to try it out at Orbital.
If you’re interested, read the newsletter announcement linked above and then let us know here.

This post has received 24 loves.
Kevin also talks in more depth about many of the these things around twice a month via his drip campaign and has a day job as CTO of Veritonic. You can also check out some of his open source code on GitHub or connect with him on Twitter @falicon or via email at kevin at falicon.com.
If you have comments, thoughts, or want to respond to something you see here I would encourage you to respond via a post on your own blog (and then let me know about the link via one of the routes mentioned above).
