Technical Entrepreneur Types of People

What We Learned:

Part 1 Overview: My team project was with team leader Amber Chang, who came up with a fiction recommender social web site. We each provided brainstorms of ideas, and my list of ideas was included in the provided class files link, but Amber asked me to join her team and I did, rather than pursue mine for this part of the class. I'll list mine below that we did NOT pursue in this class project. We were asked to submit these and mine were from what I thought about through life experience and conversations with others, some are from what the internet search gave me, and some just observations from being out and about. We explored Ambers idea for the class project, but I share mine with you for fun. These are what I had to submit before we did pursue the fiction recommender for the class project.
