Work as play, Business as Art

So – I already wrote about Startup Weekend, but I need to say a little more. Building a product and a business is a creative and artful thing. No two are the same, and there are no rules for doing it. The goals may be different from art – but not entirely. And the process may be different, but not entirely. But for we lucky people, when things are as they should be, work is our creative playground, and bringing the right ideas and then the right actions together to build something that is useful gives us something special. Work isn’t like that every day, but Startup Weekend is like that every weekend.

People coming together, sharing ideas and practicing their craft – be it engineering design or business models, all essentially for the joy of doing something well. Its really a pleasure.
