Description

This week on Office Hours, TK and Isaac talk about the popular but misguided approach by most popular “How to get what you want” advice, when is a blog post TMI, and learning how to follow through with ideas. Questions: – How do you know if your blog posts are TMI? How do you balance writing about personal topics with writing where coworkers and potential future employers might read it? – How do I become more than just an idea guy? Topics Discussed: – No one cares about giving you what you want until you are creating value for them. – All rules are negotiable if you are valuable enough – What is value creation? – Value creation isn’t always monetary – Taking feedback from the marketplace – There is a price for everything that you say – How being valuable gives you more flexibility with what you create – Learning how to implement and execute ideas – Don’t let FOMO dictate what you work on If you are a fan of Office Hours and looking to take a big step forward in your professional career, visit discoverpraxis.com

  • There are two separate jobs that I’m looking for good (and preferably liberty friendly!) help with.   For the first: I’m looking for someone who has experience building html-based desktop apps using node webkit. Second: A PHP person to build a modest leaderboard backend for a small game (Unity3d) that’s in development. Do you fit either or both profiles? Let me know!

  • What does everyone think of the alarmists worrying about massive human unemployment resulting form the rise of artificial intelligences?  Case in point:  C.G.P. Grey.  It seems technology usually improves our lives.

  • Students For Liberty’s SFL’s year is much like that of the American football calendar.  The summer is our training season, the time when we teach students around the US how to be effective leaders of liberty at their universities.  The fall is when we play our regular season games: organizing conferences, hosting events on campuses, and spreading the ideas of liberty to more young people.  In the winter, the season culminates in our version of the Superbowl: the International Students For Liberty Conference, which drew over 1,700 attendees this year (here is one student’s reflection on the ISFLC, which I think highlights the impact it has on many peoples’ lives)! Now, with Spring in the air (at least for today), we are in recruitment mode.  It’s time for us to put SFL’s team together for the next season, the 2015-2016 school year, and we want to bring on as many high quality players, coaches, managers, and team members to make next year even better. So, if you’ve looked at SFL’s website right now, you’ll see a lot of open calls for positions: We are offering online leadership training to students through our new Leading Liberty Academy.  Utilizing a MOOC platform, any pro-liberty student can sign up to learn how to start a student group, organize events, and become an effective leader on campus.  The best students who complete this training will be invited to join SFL’s Campus Coordinator Program next year so they can access more resources and support from SFL to build the student movement for liberty not just at their own school, but at other schools in their area as well. Applications are open for the 2015-2016 North American Executive Board, which will accept the top student leaders in the US and Canada to build the student movement for liberty in the region. SFL is looking for summer interns to learn what it’s like to work in the liberty movement and gain valuable skills in communications, events planning, management, and fundraising (intern applications are at the bottom of this page). SFL is hiring full time staff to build up our capabilities around the world with positions ranging from ISFLC Director to Data & Measurement Associate. Now is the time to put together our team and strategy for 2015-2016 (I’ll be sending an email soon to update you on that strategy, so look out for that).  We have some exciting candidates, but want to keep looking for the best.  If you can think of any students that have leadership potential or non-students looking to make an impact in the cause of liberty, please refer them to any of these openings.

  • How about a Liberty.me job board accessible to members only?
