How to fix port forwarding problems with Clear Wireless

774 - Neuron Connection - Pattern
The Problem:
You use Clear Wireless (ClearWire) for your internet service and you cannot set up Remote Desktop on Windows 7.

The Cause: Whereas most internet provider provided devices just function as gateways, the Clear device functions as both a router and a gateway rolled into one unit.   It also uses a different subnet.  You also have to use a separate router with the Clear device if you have more than one computer (what fun).

The Solution: Just point all relevant traffic from the Clear device to your normal router, and set up your computer normally from there.

A successful round of networking – with presentation lessons learned

Neural Network : basic schemeI just returned from a successful lunch at the Duluth Flash Networking event, sponsored brought to you by Solutions Marketing, and sponsored by Purdue Vision (a graphic design and marketing firm).  I had a good time and learned more about how to market both myself and Stronico.

I’m something of a novice presenter, so I’m sure that this will not be news to many of my readers, but here are the lessons I drew from the four 90 second presentations I made Continue reading →

Is an Ivy League education pointless for creative people?

IVE•RI•TAS came across some of Richard Florida’s work online yesterday (Florida is the author of “The Creative Class” and the creator of the notion that creative people should self-segregate) and I began wondering: why do Ivy League institutions produce so few creative people? Continue reading →

The three types of wealth – Money, Time, and Clan

Contando DinheiroAfter reading this article on the phenomenon of Farmville I revised my notions of wealth.  I previously categorized wealth in the following two ways:

  • Owning Money – how much money do you have in the bank account, or can be converted to cash quickly.  Most people regard money wealth as the only wealth
  • Owning Time – How much time do you have in the average week/month/year that is under your control?  Do you spend 90 hours a week working in a job you hate?   Do you spend 30 hours a week doing housework, maintaining electronic gear, smiling at people you don’t care about, or commuting?   If so, you possess little time, no matter how much money you can spend.  Tim Ferriss is the best explainer of this notion.  Read his blog (and book).  (I include  his book, The Four Hour Workweek on my all time top ten list of books.  I intend to write a time-wealth calculator at some point.)

Up until reading the Farmville article I limited my definitions of wealth to the above two categories.  Reading the article crystallized my notion of clan wealth.

Please note, I’m using the Southern American definition of Clan, which I define as a group of people related by blood, marriage, friendship, or history of friendship which has an intricate network of mutual obligations and debts and acts as one unit on divisive issues.  (Please also note, nothing in this post relates to the KKK).  In American pop history the Hatfield and the McCoy groups serve as the best example of clans.

The Strength of Weak Ties

One of the principal theories of the Stronico application is known as “The Strength of Weak Ties“. The link is a nice explanation of that, “Never Eat Alone” by Keith Ferrazzi is a book-length treatise on the theory and the application of that.

As it’s one of the fundamental theories, I thought I would link it here.
