The halls of Geekdom are normally filled with techies workshopping the next killer app or the next innovation in cloud computing. But this weekend there was a different type of brain storm at the downtown offices.
Asia Ciaravino, president of the San Antonio Playhouse, stood in front of a computer project screen as she pitched their big idea to expert entrepreneurs. Ciaravino and five other arts groups just went through the three-day startup process where they learned to re-think their approach to business.
What creates the creative spark that makes true-believers out of skeptics and makes an entrepreneur unstoppable? Bill Schley thinks he knows what.

As people across the country honor military veterans for their service, San Antonio's Geekdom is providing many of them a path to entrepreneurship.

Your "senior moment" -- forgetting where your keys are -- reciting the wrong child's name -- is the result of normal aging, but what makes up normal is defined by what makes up you -- that is to say your genes affect the way your brain declines.
Studying extended families, the Texas Biomedical Research Institute and Yale University published a study showing just how much that decline is influenced by your genetics.
Geekdom is celebrating its first anniversary and is looking to the future of continued growth and innovation. Local pre-K book series Arte Kids has become a national hit by using San Antonio's bi-lingual and bi-cultural roots.
