I-West vs Midwest Round II

Indiana

ISINGENISO

Ngesonto eledlule, bengisephaneli e-The Combine - 2010 ebizwa Iya eNtshonalanga: AbabeMidwesterners bakudala abathuthele eSilicon Valley babelana ngezindaba zabo. Ngangingomunye wabantu abane ababexoxa ngezindaba zethu futhi kwaqala umlilo ku-Twitter futhi ngaya ku-Cat 4 lapho uDoug Karr ethumela ukusabela kwakhe lapho ephinda Hlanganisa u-2010 lapha.

Yonke le mizwa yayifaneleke ngokuphelele ngenxa yesimo esingajulile sefomethi, esivuthiwe ngokulunywa komsindo, kepha ayanele ukukhanyisa ngempela okuthile okufanelwe yimizuzu engaphezu kwengu-10 yokuxoxa ngokungajwayelekile ngomuntu ngamunye. UDoug Karr ubenomusa omkhulu ngokunginikeza ithuba lokungena kule ngxoxo ukuze nginikeze umbono wami - hhayi mayelana nokwehla e-Combine - kepha ukuyibuyisela kabusha engxoxweni phakathi kweWest vs Midwest (nami endimeni ye Drago) kulowo ohlinzeka ngokujula okwengeziwe ngamabhizinisi lapha eSan Francisco naseMidwest (kimi Bloomington, IN).

Ngicabanga ukuthi kunezifundo, ezisuselwa ekugxekeni okusemthethweni, ezinganikeza amathuba kulokhu sonke ngokungakhathalekile ukuthi sikuluphi uhlangothi. Ngemuva kwakho konke, akuyona yini enye yezinsika ezisemqoka kwezamabhizinisi?

Okwabiwe Ngokuhlanganyela Kwakha Umphakathi Namasiko Akithi

Umphakathi ophuma eNtshonalanga kanye naseMidwest bobabili babaluleke ngokulinganayo kuzo zombili izindawo, kepha kukhona ama-apula kuma-oranges uma kuqhathaniswa namandla ezinto abazenzayo. Indaba yami ihambisana nabaningi lapha ngaphandle: ukuphuma eNtshonalanga kuyisifaniso esisebenzayo esinomlando ocebile noshubile ekuthuthukisweni kwezwe lethu. Ngokungafani noLewis noClark, akekho namuhla ogwedla umfula, elwa namabhere anama-grizzly kanye nezingxoxo zokuphikisana nezimpi AmaNdiya Abomdabu baseMelika, kodwa njengabo, sonke sihlanganyela umuzwa ofanayo wokuhlangana - ukuhlangana nabantu, imihlaba ebukeka ngokwethu kanye nokulinganiselwa kwethu njengoba sibeka engcupheni yokushiya ukunethezeka kwethu kwasekhaya saya eNtshonalanga. Ababaningi bethu abavela lapha, kepha sakha umphakathi wethu ngalezi zimo ezivamile ukwedlula lezo zamasiko afana nolimi, isigaba senhlalo nezomnotho, umbala nokuzonda uKanye West.

EMidwest, umphakathi ungesinye sezici ezinamandla futhi ezinomona kakhulu kunoma yiliphi isiko emhlabeni. Abantu abaseMidwest bayakwazisa ukuba nomhlane womunye nomunye, ukungenisa izihambi ngokweqile (ngaphandle kokuthi usemidlalo yebhola lezinyawo i-Ohio St - Mich), futhi ngaso sonke isikhathi ukwenza umsebenzi wenziwe nge-fanfare encane ngangokunokwenzeka (Uma i-Indiana University ibeka amagama emhlane amajezi abo, ngeke ngimangale uma iBloomington iphenduka inqwaba yelimestone elokozayo). Lo mqondo womphakathi unamandla amakhulu, kungaba isenzo sobuhlanya ukushiya konke emuva ukuthuthela endaweni lapho ungakhokha khona u- $ 1,700-ngenyanga ukuze uhlale ebhokisini lezicathulo ngaphezulu kolayini wephutha osebenzayo.

Ngakho-ke, yomibili imiphakathi inezibopho eziqinile, kepha amanani nokuhlangenwe nakho okudala lezo zibopho kuveza izinzuzo nezinkinga ezithile kwezamabhizinisi. Esikhathini esifushane, i-Indiana njengamanje isenkingeni.

Ingozi Nomvuzo

akekho ifilimuKu-underrated kakhulu Igama lami ngingu Nobuntu, umlingiswa oyinhloko "Akekho" (odlalwa nguTerrance Hill) uthatha izinhlamvu ezimbalwa ngesigqoko sakhe sezinkomo esivela ku-Legendary gunslinger uJack Beauregard (odlalwa nguHenry Fonda), ukufakazela udumo kuye. Ingxoxo abayishintshanisa ngokukhazimulayo:

  • UJack: Ake ungitshele, yini umdlalo wakho?
  • Akekho: Lapho ngisemncane, ngangizenza sengathi nginguJack Beauregard.
  • UJack: … Futhi manje senikhulile?
  • Akekho: Ngiyaqapha kakhulu. Kepha kwesinye isikhathi ukuba nengozi encane, kungaletha imivuzo, uyazi.
  • UJack: Uma ingozi incane, umvuzo mncane.

Umehluko omkhulu engiwukhomba emasikweni aphakathi kweNtshonalanga neMidwest ulele ngqo kule ndawo. Eminyakeni engu-2 eyedlule yokubandakanyeka emiphakathini yewebhu neyezobuchwepheshe e-Indy naseBloomington, ngingasho ngokuqinisekile, lolu udaba olukhulu kakhulu oluyedwa i-Indiana olunalo lokuba yiBoulder elandelayo noma iSilicon Valley elandelayo. Lokhu kuyakwenza hhayi kusho lokho ekekho neyodwa uthatha izingozi, noma ukuthi azikho izinguquko ezizwakalayo ezenzeka e-Indiana. Kepha, lokho okushoyo, ukuthi into eyodwa eyinhloko yokwakha umphakathi wezobuchwepheshe ophumelelayo ayikathengi umcabango omkhulu wengozi okwamanje.

Isikhundla esibalulekile kunoma yiliphi ibhizinisi lobuchwepheshe singumsunguli wezobuchwepheshe noma unjiniyela oholayo (duh). Isidingo salezi zinhlobo zabantu sikudlula kude ukunikezwa kwabo, futhi lokhu kuyiqiniso naseSan Francisco. Umehluko omkhulu e-Indiana, ngukuthi inani labantu abangasetshenziswanga abanamakhono obuchwepheshe wokwakha umkhiqizo wewebhu baphendule kulokhu kunikezwa futhi bafuna ukungalingani ngokusetha "izitolo ze-dev" ezithuthukisa ezobuchwepheshe. Lokhu kudinga osomabhizinisi abangewona ezobuchwepheshe ukuthi bakhiphe yonke imali yabo abayisebenzele kanzima abayiphakamisile kanye / noma imali yokulinganisa ukukhokhela umuntu ongenasikhumba emdlalweni. Ngikhulume nabathuthukisi abaningi abavela e-Indy naseBloomington ababenza imiholo emangalisayo futhi abacabanga ukuthi bangosomabhizinisi ngoba baxazulula izinkinga zokuqala. Kepha empeleni abanjalo. Awusiye usomabhizinisi kuze kube uyayeka umcamelo wakho, uphonse isigqoko sakho nawo wonke umuntu bese uzidela uze udale okuthile okwakha inani nokwenza imali. Uma ufaka i-W-2 minyaka yonke, awusiye usomabhizinisi.

Douglas Karr nabanye abaningi benze umsebenzi omangalisayo ekusunguleni i-Indy njenge-Marketing Tech hotspot. Kuyamangalisa lokho. Kodwa-ke, abanye abasunguli abafuna ukwakha i-Facebook / Google / njll elandelayo, badinga ithalenta elithile lobunjiniyela. Ilapha, kepha ayabiwa kahle futhi izikhuthazo azihambelani. Ngiyazi osomabhizinisi abaningi okungezona ezobuchwepheshe e-Indiana abadinga kakhulu ithalente le-dev futhi abangakwazi ukulithola ngaphandle kokuthi bakhokhe imali noma badele imali engeke ihlale etendeni uma selikhishiwe. Ngakho-ke, i-Indiana isalahlekelwa yilabosomabhizinisi abanethalente kakhulu eSan Francisco naseSigodini ngoba leyo conundrum ayikho nje ezinombolweni ezingalingani lapha. Angisho ukuthi “ngeke uphumelele ngaphandle kokuthi uthuthele eNtshonalanga.” Engikushoyo ukuthi kube nzima kakhulu kubasunguli abangewona ezobuchwepheshe ukuthi bathole abasunguli bezobuchwepheshe abadinga ukuncintisana nabasunguli kanye nezinkampani ezisentshonalanga ezingenayo inkinga efanayo.

Izindaba ezinhle ze-Indiana, noma kunjalo. Izinto seziqala ukuhamba, kancane, futhi angicabangi ukuthi lokhu kuzoba yinkinga ngokuhamba kwesikhathi. Isikhathi eside kangakanani? Angazi, kepha ukube bengingusomabhizinisi e-Indiana ongafuni ukuhambisa eNtshonalanga, bengizolishaya leli hhashi lize lincishiswe libe yinqwaba yama-molecule.

5 Amazwana

    @dougheinz ungumuntu weqiniso, Doug. Ngikuthokozela kakhulu okuthunyelwe okuhle kanye nombono omnandi owulethe kule ngxoxo. Ngithi, ubenethemba elikhulu kunamanye amazwi amabi we-midwest angene ukuze angithethise kokuthunyelwe kwami. Siyabonga ngokuthatha isikhathi!

    Ngabuyela e-Indianapolis ngemuva kweminyaka engu-3 1/2 eNew York City ngokukhethekile ukujoyina iRaidious. Kunesibonakaliso esisodwa sethemba lapho.

    Ngenkathi ngiqala ukuphuma lapho, ngangine-chip ehlombe lami mayelana nokuthi silunge kanjani lapha njenganoma iyiphi enye indawo. Ngisheshe ngafunda ukuthi lokho kuyiqiniso impela, kepha ukukhuluma ngakho kukwenza uzwakale njengesifundazwe.

    Umqashi wami akazange akholwe ukuthi ngangivela eMidwest ngoba “ngihamba ngejubane, ngikhuluma ngokushesha,” ngikhuluma ngezandla, futhi “nginesiko kakhulu.” Omunye umbiko wami womugqa onamachashazi awukwazanga nokudweba isimo sesifundazwe sase-Indiana. Laba ababili abaphakamisa i-NYC.

    Ngenkathi ithalente ligeleza ngokukhululeka, isiko livame ukuvela kolunye lwalezi zingqimba ezimbili. Lokho kuyiqiniso nje. Futhi isikhathi esiningi, ithalente lilandela lowo mthombo wesiko kwenye yalezi zindawo ezimbili.

    Ukuthukuthela nokuzithethelela akuyona indlela okufanele uhambe ngayo. Umsebenzi omuhle, uDoug. Ngilithandile ithoni yakho.

    Uma kungekho okunye, yenza njengoba benza eNew York. Noma nini lapho noma ubani ekungabaza, mtshele ukuthi azihambele.

    Yenza wena nje.

    Ngiyabonga ndoda. Eyakho yindaba enhle yakudala yokuthi kwenzakalani lapho abantu abavela ezindaweni ezahlukahlukene nezizinda empeleni behlangana futhi badlule emibonweni eyeqisayo. Impilo inzima kakhulu ukuphila njengengqondo, akunjalo?
