Are there any entrepeneural resources on campus?
I'm looking for advice on acquiring / managing venture capital for a thing I'm doing; of course the Internet is a great resource but I need a more grounded resource, someone I can bother in the flesh. Heard anything? Know anybody? The E-garage on Centennial is the closest thing I am aware of, but there are no advisors/SMEs, just other students

wow that is a really useful site; I read a lot of it last night and it offered some genuinely insightful stuff; I am working hard on creating my "Minimum Viable Product" but once I get out of the technical thicket (i.e. API documentation) I'll drop him an e-mail

clarification: that's not to say that I am writing API documentation, rather I'm reading someone else's (tediously written) API docs

Incidentally this business class I'm in (MIE201, it's a free elective BTW) just started a unit on entrepreneurship; here's some resources I learned about today (on top of the ones already posted in this thread):
Entrepreneural Clinic: https://entrepreneurship.ncsu.edu/spaces/entrepreneurship-clinic/

I'm currently still (as in >>10478) looking for anyone w/ the entrepreneural drive who can market this to end-users; also anyone w/ iOS / Android app experience is more than welcome to join as a partner!

Heya, let's talk about careers! What do you do / what do you want to do? This has become more relevant recently, especially as I am graduating college soon. Let's chat!
I wanna make cream as an FPGA engineer while I get my PE licensure, hopefully while staying in the RDU/RTP area for a while.

On the drive home, not even an hour away, I got an offer letter

The offer was slightly below expected but I really want this job. I'm not sure what to do next. I want to ask for a phone call and try to negotiate, but based on the public salaries I can really only ask for $1,000-3,000 more. And calling and making a fuss about such a small amount seems strange. I heard some horror stories about offers being rescinded.

Lecturer positions usually have non-negotiable salaries but I set an internal number for myself. Plus they gave me a week deadline. So now I'm fretting about this pretty hard. I have no experience and I don't know what to do. For reference, a $2,000 increase would be a 4.7% raise.

>> No.10494  

I asked for more (at a uni position) and it went well. I don't think rescinding offers because of negotiation is very common at all.

>> No.10501  

They refused to negotiate but told me all recent positions are offered a standard letter. I accepted the job - will be moving to South Carolina around June. Be on the look out for a party thread soon.

Hello; PSA I'm giving a talk on 2/27 from 7P~8P on Centennial campus EB2 Rm. #3001 with the NCSU LUG and I'd love it if we could get a good and excited group out that night; I'm proposing / demonstrating a completely new concept for a purely P2P (i.e. peer-to-peer) overlay network on top of the Internet which functions like other existing P2P networks (Napster, GNUtella, Bitcoin) but is optimized and designed exclusively to provide for the distributed hosting and discovery of お絵描き (i.e. simply, "drawings") with a rigourous body of semantic/meaningful metadata attached to each file meant to rival that of hosted sites like Danbooru.
Come out if you're interested in something like this, even if you have no idea what any of that means; I'm extremely fired up about this idea and I'm hoping to get other people excited too.

Hello hello hello /ncsu/.
As we near the permanent archive event, I want to pose a (suggestive) question: what are the odds are of some hyper-entity continuing the Howler tradition? That is to say: is there the opportunity for an online community to generate and support the aggresive friendship which has allowed Howler to have so many meetups, events, pizza parties, board game nights etc. etc.?
To facilitate discussion, I'd like to mention that there are many already-existing Discord groups related to NC State, some being:

These communities are interesting but extremely volatile and closed off (this is the nature of Discord servers). Howler, I think, excels at lowering the barrier-to-entry to participate in the community by allowing (1) anyone to post and (2) not requiring anything more than a Web Browser. However in the same stroke Howler also loses the "sense of community" that overcoming the barriers to entry elicits in members.
And yet in spite of both of these things Howler has had more fun, more parties, more community than any other un-organization in the history of ever at NC State... could you see it happening again? What does it take? What does such a community look like?

What does your upcoming semester look like? Easy? Hard? Fun? Just another semester? Remember that your year won't always revolve around the semester-cycle so learn to love it while you still have it!

Depression is so inconvenient. I've been hurt really bad, and it's taking a while to heal without closure.

But the main problem is I have school work! How do y'all COPE with staying in bed an extra two hours and having only just enough motivation?

I've been seeing a therapist, working out, weening myself off my vices, &c. but every new day is a challenge. wat do?

>> No.10470  

Sounds like you're almost there. I like to talk to myself actually. Be your own therapist.

how did we all end up here as ourselves
how did we make it past the world that wants to change us
what strength of will or stiffness of spine stopped us bending

when the great wind comes, i hope i can stand true
but there's so much to learn from losing oneself
at the very least i hope we can stand together
even if it's with bowed spines

I dunno bruh, the most rigid people break the easiest. I consider myself one of the “Immovable Ones” and I had to have someone bend me pretty far down low for me to be able to spring up like I have.

The high-born, blessed with brains and beauty,
Callous calling convictions their duty
In megolomania, malice, and madness,
Speed on stirring sorrow and sadness—
Delusions depriving them of depth and joy.

Verily we victims of these vain I vow
Shall breath, bravely bend, and bow
From freely flowing force of life,
Which wanes but waxes with strife.
Weathering winds, we wept with joy.
