Every now and then you can enjoy a better appreciation of something if you step away from it for a moment and consider something that is different and bizarre. Well…step away from the nice, clean orderly world of tech gadgets and gizmos, of hardware and software, of market shares and sales number, and think about…guts. Yes…guts!
This article focuses on a bizarre production of an edible stomach surgery replica. Of course it is not totally removed from the technical world as it takes a lot of technical engineering to accomplish such a feat no matter how disgusting it may look. In fact, disgusting was precisely the goal – at least for those not in the medical profession. Surgeons and others fascinated by medical advancements and involved with the nitty-gritty of them on a daily basis would find this cake to be something amazing, or at least most of them would.
However, even those not part of the medical community might discover a morbid fascination with such an intensely realistic cake even though it might just be way too realistic to be able to even consider taking a bite. But regardless of palate and power over nausea-inducing sights, anyone seeing this cake would have to acknowledge the technical skills required to produce it.

Forbes has recently released their own version of a “Who’s Who” list featuring successful venture capitalists that have made some very smart choices in their investment strategies. This list entitled the “Midas List” can provide some valuable insight as to how these particular men (no women listed, but that is a whole different topic to explore at another time) made very profitable choices.
There are a handful of very big companies that virtually turned to gold when they made their initial public offering and the men of the Midas List all invested in at least one of those companies. Forbes listed the smartest investments being in the following businesses: Facebook, Zynga, Twitter, Groupon, LinkedIn, Pandora, Workday, Splunk, and PaloAlto.
The measuring stick for determining which men made the wisest investment choices depended on how much they paid for their IPO shares compared to the value of those shares today in the current market environment. Of course, the larger the business is, the more investors it has that fit the ratio for success. For example, Facebook and Twitter have over ten such VCs while Splunk and Workday only have two. But that is not really important information in terms of what the Midas List is focused on which is the profit margin for the VCs that made the list and not necessarily the size of the company they invested in.

With the term and concept of entrepreneurship being so popular these days, it was only a matter of time before educational options included significant learning opportunities for those would-be entrepreneurs. These education options are popping up around the world and one of the most recent ones is located in Austria.
In October the New Design University of St. Polten will begin offering a master degree program in entrepreneurship partnering with UC Berkeley, Stanford University, and MIT. The schools will share both format and course content through international study opportunities that are designed to give budding entrepreneurs the most cutting-edge education possible in the space.
Being an entrepreneur is nothing new. Go-getters looking to blaze their own trails of success through the future have been around since the dawn of time. However, with the state of the world-wide economy and its unstable present and future, more attention is being paid to the role of entrepreneurship. In a troubled economy people soon recognize that the same old way of doing things and living life just is not going to be enough to fix many economic issues. Instead, thinking outside of the box in positive ways can do much in getting the economy back on track.
