Four short links: 12 June 2011*

  1. Harvard Business School Changes Its Class Profile – Harvard Business School’s incoming class will have a substantially smaller percentage of finance professionals than in previous years. Instead, a higher number of students will have manufacturing and technology backgrounds.
  2. TEDTalks : Janet Echelman: Taking imagination seriously (2011) – Janet Echelman found her true voice as an artist when her paints went missing — which forced her to look to an unorthodox new art material. Now she makes billowing, flowing, building-sized sculpture with a surprisingly geeky edge. A transporting 10 minutes of pure creativity.
  3. Acting With Incomplete Information in a Startup – As a fledgling entrepreneur in the midst of a growing startup, I try to read quite a lot around the subject. I’ve been deeply involved in startup culture for around two years now and I often find myself reflecting on my learning and relating it back to articles I have previously read.
  4. The Dawn of Politics: Francis Fukuyama goes back to the beginning – It’s possible that Francis Fukuyama does not take unmixed pleasure in his fame as the author of The End of History and the Last Man.
