This week, you can find my writing at three different online outlets. What the kids call, “the web.”
RocNext: Entrepreneurship, Innovation & Small Business
First, travel to Rochester’s biggest newspaper, the (Gannet owned) Democrat & Chronicle. I’m honored to join their blogging team for RocNext. RocNext is a small business and entrepreneurship blog. My first post is called “Rockstar Entrepreneurs: Beware the Narrative.”
NEXUS-NY: “Clean Energy”
Next, hop on over to NEXUS-NY for a look at their brand new magazine called “Clean Energy.” I wrote two articles for them and I couldn’t be happier for how the issue came out. My first article is called “Pure Quantum.” In it, I feature a clean tech startup from Cornell who is manipulating and manufacturing quantum dots for the solid state lighting industry. Whew. It’s more interesting than it sounds, I promise! My second article is an interview with Dr. Stanley Whittingham. In the 1970’s, he discovered the technology which led to rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. Both articles, as well as the whole magazine, can be viewed for free here.
Also, I was quite intimidated and stressed writing these dense-ish, high tech articles over summer. Seeing them in print is an accomplishment I won’t soon forget.
University of Rochester: Admissions Blog
Finally, my blog for the University of Rochester Admissions is now posted. If you’ve been reading lately, you’ll know that I joined the official blogging team for the First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival. My post for UR is one final recap, a call to potential new UR students: “Hey, you can’t find a better arts festival anywhere else. So you might as well come here.”
Thanks for reading!
Stay tuned for more blogs this week and next:
Fall into Upstate New York: the autumn visitor
Halloween: a short story and music companion guide
Church Bullying: the latest trend from bored Christians everywhere
I was taught (but never truly learned) three things by my self-made millionaire uncle — “Diversify, diversify, diversify.” You are well on your way to entrepreneurial success.
