Paul - 100% not being sarcastic when I say, please send me more fucking email. Seriously. A weekly top stories email would be rad.

@Pv 1) I am saying being an entrepreneur is genetic. 2) skills can be taught, but not the fundamentals of being an entrepreneur. Its like athletic talent, we all have some, but some optimize that talent into a phenomenal skill set. 3) the definition has never changed. It is still and always will be someone who starts an enterprise.

@Pv Makers are a type of entrepreneur, and yes, companies like DYI are showing that age is not a direct connect to the ability. (Meaning its innate, not a teachable skill) But there are also "Thinker" entrepreneurs that operate more like academics, spending time understanding problem sets and usecases. Its one of the reasons that the most powerful team is one of a Maker and a Thinker.
@daan_kinderfee there are two interesting components to your comment: entrepreneurs = humans like everyone else. Yes, that its relatively true in terms of general human characteristics (excluding physical). Entrepreneurship is just like life. Entrepreneurship is something that is practiced by entrepreneurs, and to a lesser extent most people. I would argue that entrepreneurs are inherent experts at entrepreneurship, which can be defined as a loose set of skills, at a level that normal humans cannot obtain.
Therefore a specialized school to help optimize the natural talents of entrepreneurs could in fact be an amazing boon to the positive effect entrepreneurs have on the world, and more generally, life.
oh you think your text-based books are bad? Imagine pushing a 20-200 page graphic-heavy children's book or graphic novel. its one of the things we have focused on at Graphicly. How to minimize fees and optimize revenue for publishers.
And yes, this is a totally self-serving comment. BUT -- its a real issue for those that are developing content that is not text-based.

Dan has a deep understanding of the importance of support that comes only with the experience of building companies. He took his belief, and like a great entrepreneur, made it into a company. The great thing about Clarity is that now when I tell a founder to call me anytime, they can. Wait. That's a good thing? :)
