The Entrepreneurial Generation

The Entrepreneurial Generation @ NYTimes.com.

The small business is the idealized social form of our time. Our culture hero is not the artist or reformer, not the saint or scientist, but the entrepreneur… Autonomy, adventure, imagination: entrepreneurship comprehends all this and more for us. The characteristic art form of our age may be the business plan.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. “Forty years ago, even 20 years ago, a young person’s first thought, or even second or third thought, was certainly not to start a business.”

    Um. Bull. (or: spoken like an english professor, or something.) I graduated 30 years ago, and I had classmates in both engineering and business circles who were pretty set on going out and starting their own business ASAP. Certainly many had it as a mid to long-term goal; I’m something of a failure in certain circles because my financial success was only a result of working for a successful startup, rather than founding one. Certainly the Internet boom was full of companies founded with a lot of “Entrepreneurial Spirit” and … not much else. Most are gone now; spirit and even business expertise is good for only so much; eventually you need to actually make something.
