A Collection of Clayton Christensen Resources

Yesterday I found an interview with Clay Christensen where he is talking about disruption in higher education, Apple getting problems, if crowd funding disrupts the VC industry and much more. (via TechCrunch, where you can also find a transcript of the interview).

He also gave the opening talk at the Business of Software conference in 2011. It’s one and a half hours long, but it’s perfect for a lazy Sunday like today. There was one quote from the talk that I noted down because it sums up quite nicely the dilemma if you look for funding. The original quote is »You need to invest if you don’t need it, if you need it, you are doomed.«, but if can be easily rephrased to »You need to look for funding if you don’t need it, if you need it, you are doomed.«

Related, Jason Fried was invited to a meeting with Christensen and jotted down his three key take aways for Inc.com.

Yes, I should finally start reading his book The Innovator’s Dilemma.

Something I Need to Learn More About: Customer Development

Yep, I want to learn more about and practice customer development. This HackFwd Talk by Rob Fitzpatrick is definitely a helpful start. Also, Andreas Klingers slides provide some good starting points.

David Heinemeier Hansson Interviewed by Jason Calacanis. Again.

I know, I posted quite a lot of videos in the last days. But I currently have the time to watch all the videos from my list.

After a great first episode with David Heinemeier Hansson about three years ago, Jason Calacanis, who is running the Web TV This Week in Startups, did a second interview with him. You guessed it already, it’s also worth every minute. They talked about Groupon, bubbles, Apple, innovation, Yahoo, remote work, sustainable companies and lifestyles.

You can jumpt straight to 7:30 min where the interview starts. His first interview can be found here: http://youtu.be/fPrvnlvnu-k

Jonathan Snook: Your CSS is a Mess

This video is a little more technically. It’s Jonathan Snooks talk at last years Smashing Conference. It pretty much sums up his book »Scalable and Modular Architecture for CSS« in 33 minutes.
