Fail Fast

Random thoughts on software, process, and life.
creativemorningsdetroit:

Failure, August’s international theme, is a concept many people dread, something to be avoided. It implies finality. Sometimes it is also difficult to see it as what it can be, something that can foster development of ideas which is essential to the creation process. Join us at Great Lakes Coffee on August 1st at 8:30am for Tunde Wey. Free tickets will be available on July 28th.
Tunde Wey has had many iterations of businesses, from a crowd-sourced groupon/kickstarter-esque company Detroit Big F Deal (part of our first cohort of Ventures) to pop up cuisine, he is constantly creating and improving. Tunde  is originally from Lagos, Nigera and has lived in Detroit for 14 years. He is an entrepreneur, writer, and chef who has created several pop-up dining experiences, most recently Lagos: Nigerian BBQ and co-owns (revolver), a restaurant that hosts guest chefs in Hamtramck. He has also been a writer for Model D’s Urban Innovation Exchange and plays for the Detroit City Futbol League.

If atheists underestimate the fudginess in faith, believers underestimate the soupiness of doubt.

Only the inimitable Adam Gopnik can write a sentence like this, which he does in reviewing Peter Watson’s The Age of Atheists: How We Have Sought to Live Since the Death of God and considering the cultural paradoxes it belies.

Since I’m in a cassette digitization mood, here is a playlist of our wedding mix tape, circa 1993. You can do the Detroit Hustle, play air guitar with AC/DC, or just dance with us to Dave Grusin.
