We asked him for an update on what he’ll be doing during SXSW 2012.
What’s new Austin!!
I wanted to shoot some updates, insights, invites and greetings all y’all’s way. Asse9 is Austin Secret Society of Entrepreneurs. If you’re not hacking life, you’re asinine.

I am gaming the system by having 600 undergrads in engineering learn these Gua Gua Guacamole recipes. And then help others pattern iterate. They will be my ad-hoc venture associates. Right now I have two… Math-wise, I have 598 to go. I will be lead generating young humans from college. Lead Gen is a job I’ve had since I was deans list in engineering at Urbana, Illinois.
Since last sxsw, I have regurgitated a book that Mark McCormack wrote into 14 chapters of non copyright protected content…
“What They Don’t Teach You at Stanford Business School”
