  • posted I will be teaching a class in Reykjavik University this fall - How to Start a Startup - to inspire those taking the class that future awaits those who create it. To quote from Zero to One "In 1912, after he became the first explorer to reach the South Pole, Roald Amundsen wrote: Victory awaits him who has everything in order - luck, people call it." You are not a lottery ticket we have to find a way back to a definite future, and the western world needs nothing short of a cultural revolution to do it. http://startupiceland.com/2015/04/01/you-are-not-a-lottery-ticket/
