Silicon Florist’s links arrangement for April 16, 2008

Ten Questions About Entrepreneurs

Fred Wilson writes “I was interviewed yesterday by a journalist who is doing a television-style series on entrepreneurs which will be broadcast on the web starting this summer. He asked me somewhere around thirty questions about entrepreneurs. I didn’t take notes but here are ten questions I remember and a short quick summary of my answer.”

ASUS EeePC pilot in Oregon schools

TannerVision writes “We have launched two pilot programs in which students use ASUS EeePCs. One pilot is at Brooklyn Elementary in grade 4, and began in March 2008. The other is at Oregon High School and just began last week, with the goal of having English classes use the small computers in lieu of a computer lab (obviously they will have to change their classroom model a bit, but this is just a pilot).”

Gary Vaynerchuk to visit Portland

Looks like the Willamette Valley will be getting a little thunder of its own, when Gary Vaynerchuk of Wine Library TV swings through town on his book tour. If you’re not familiar with Gary or Wine Library TV, it’s well worth a watch. I’m looking forward to hearing more about his visit.
