Let community occupy the company

It’s not the varied socioeconomic motivation behind Occupy Wall Street that gets me. It’s the end result of community that does.

Steve Blank, Marc Andreessen and a myriad of related tech pundits and economists are weighing in on the debate. I used to worry about bubbles and company valuations. But now? Bubbles make for much needed, truly… more Don’t burst those bubbles – they’re the real talent communities
