      It is time to stop rewarding failure

      Silicon Valley (the notion) has become very much like rest of corporate America — it has embraced the philosophy of failing upwards. I have seen many executives get bumped up the ranks, get fancier titles and bigger paychecks, even though they were disastrous at their job. Many have left destruction and dismay in their wake.

      Costly Mistakes Almost Every Entrepreneur Makes

      Congress tried to help small-business contractors. Here’s why it’s backfiring.

      More than a year and a half ago, Congress passed and the president signed legislation intended to help small businesses more easily navigate the federal contracting arena and win more government work.

      Rant: Entrepreneurship and Dropouts, and Bad PR
