HIndsight – 01/10/12 – Red Eyes and the Home Stretch

Entrepreneurship, Hindsight No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

I’m on the last few days of a month long sprint to build the V1 of our new product we’re launching called AlumniChoose. Today I woke up at 7am and worked almost solidly till just a few minutes ago. With breaks for lunch and such, that’s almost a 14 hour day. The past month has […]

Hindsight – 09/24/11 – The Homecoming

ACbert, Hindsight No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

My job entails a lot of traveling right now. Specifically in this season as schools are ramping up their leaders for the year and orientations are in full swing. If you look at our calendar, you’ll see I’m on the road a lot. Every time I’m on my way back to NYC and I start […]

Hindsight – 09/13/11 – TechStars Bloomberg TV

Hindsight, Red Rover No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

The TechStars Bloomberg documentary aired tonight. Some people on Twitter were calling it the American Idol of start-ups. I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect. We, in Red Rover, were in the NY TechStars program for 4 months and they did a TON of filming. They must have walked away with 1000s of hours of […]

Hindsight – 08/28/11 – Friends Who Volunteer

This morning our friend Lauren texted us to see if we were up for helping set up a new Irene evacuation shelter they were opening near Union Sq. It makes sense that there would be need for a massive number of volunteers across the city, but neither Annie or I had heard anything about it […]

Hindsight – 06/30/11 – Bus Tripping To Pittsburgh

ACbert, Hindsight, Love, Traveling No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

Yes, taking a bus from NYC to Pittsburgh takes eight hours and flying only takes two hours. Yes, it would actually be cheaper to fly if I added in how much my per hour cost is and added that to the cheaper bus tickets. But it’s 2:58 in the morning, I’m drinking a beer (I […]

Hindsight – 06/23/11 – Entrepreneurs and Artists

As part of ACbert’s 4-day birthday celebration, we went tonight to an open mic night at the Bowery Poetry Club. Anyone could submit to perform which means the talent was all over the place making the night a bit of a hot mess. But I appreciated that everyone was wiling to take a risk and […]

Hindsight – 06/18/11 – Country Boy [IMAGE]

Hindsight, Self Insight No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

Despite living in NYC and loving it, I’m still a country boy at heart. I love the big open sky, the fresh air, the sounds of nature, and the slow peaceful way of everything.

Hindsight – 06/05/11 – Street Peddling

Business, Hindsight, Marketing No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

A common street scene in NYC is young hip guys trying to sell a signed copy of their newly released music CD to pedestrians walking by. By telling you a sob story about how hard it was to produce and how they spent their life savings to produce it, your empathy button is triggered and […]

Hindsight – 12/11/10 – Subway Singing

Hindsight, Random No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

File this under “little things I do that no one knows about.” The approaching trains in the underground subways of NYC make an obscene amount of noise. So much noise, in fact, that someone could scream at the top of their lungs and no one would hear. Taking advantage of the noise camouflage, I’ll project […]
