Being a Changemaker

As a young college student, I had never been to a day long conference. The concept was new to me, and I was excited to experience it for the first time at Intermitten 2019, “The Conference for Changemakers,” in the Ark Theatre in Ann Arbor.

If you’ve followed Cahoots at all over the years, you’ll know we like pluses — a lot. So, where did they come from, and why?

Introducing the Cahoots “House Car” Program

Cahoots Coffee Chats: Mo from Movellus

I started Movellus when I was still a Ph.D. student at the University of Michigan conducting research on semiconductor design. The goal of the research was to take chips to the next level in terms of power and speed to help nudge Moore’s law forward. Chips have analog portions and they have digital portions. The analog portions are still custom designed and cause a lot of the issues in chips today.

What I Learned After Interning In a Co-working Space

As I write this, it’s 10:20 am on the first day of my second week of my internship at Cahoots, a co-working space in downtown Ann Arbor. I’m hoping that a few extra sips of coffee from my “Freudian Sips” mug might allow me to overcome this writer’s block. When asked to make a new post for our blog I wasn’t sure what to write.
