John Biggs on 4 (bad) Slavic Habits

09.27.2011, Uncategorized, by .

Failure to cooperate, bad UX and marketing, engineers instead of entrepreneurs, and fear of change.

These are “Four Slavic Habits” John Biggs, the editor of TechCrunch Gadgets, outlined in a presentation at the Reaktor coworking space in Warsaw. The slide is from his talk at the OpenReaktor#1 meetup back in August, in which he gave advice to aspiring entrepreneurs. Biggs has been coming to Poland for many years and also worked there as a consultant, so his candid insight is definitely interesting. Oh, and he is fluent in Polish!


This is the video of his talk (in English). The Slavic Habits part starts around 18:40.

And here are screenshots of the related slides:
