I happened across this great blog post on Techcrunch on why everyone should work for a Startup at least once (http://techcrunch.com/2014/09/20/5-reasons-you-should-work-for-a-startup-at-least-once/). Now, I know not everyone can drop existing responsibilities for the uncertainties of a startup. But if you’d like a sample taste of that incredible experience come out for the upcoming Startup Weekend in San Diego in November. For a weekend you can hang out with some great people, see amazing new ideas in hardware and software in action and learn from great coaches what it takes to make a startup succeed. There is nothing better you could do for yourself in a weekend!
