1. What I was right and wrong about in 2012

    I am a big fan of two things: Being the first to call myself out when my analysis is wrong, and being the first to yell "TOLD YOU SO!" when I'm right. Yeah, yeah, the latter is annoying. And maybe I'll work on that in the New Year. In the mean time, here are my two biggest whiffs, and two things I got right in 2012.

  2. With a huge 2012, Reddit may be the ultimate Web 2.0 underdog victory

    As someone who has covered startups all over the world for the last 15 years, I've seen a lot of patterns repeat. But the very reason I write about entrepreneurship is the promise of seeing something new, something I've never seen before.

  3. How agile should your startup be?

    Speed is key to the software development cycle. Releases must come early and often, and the focus must be on high-priority development tasks. Features and bug fixes are especially important when budgets are constrained.

  4. 2013, the year of storytelling

    Since social networking was invented, it has been powered by users. We happily fuel our favorite social networks with the snippets of content that make them so valuable: our photos, check-ins, reviews, likes, hearts and shares. We post status updates about how we feel on Facebook, photos of what we're eating on Instagram, links to what we're reading on Twitter, and the lowbrow gifs we're laughing at on Tumblr.

  5. Online identity is changing, but engagement is still key

    How did LinkedIn get its growth? By SEO optimizing your online resume. And to this day, LinkedIn remains the king of online professional identity. However, that may be changing as our use of online identity is evolving, thanks to services like and Vizify. Our identity today is about telling a story of what we’ve done, not just stating it.

  6. The shifting definition of the Web browser

    The Web comes in all shapes and sizes. Designers and developers are tasked with building sites capable of shifting from 3-inch smartphone displays to 92-inch (yes, really) "smart" television sets and everywhere in between. Yet supporting an ever-expanding array of screen sizes is only half the battle. Developers also have to account for all kinds of Web browsers -- and there are more of them than you might think.

  8. Surf Air gets three new aircraft and $2.6 million for Christmas

    If you think developing a mobile app is difficult, try building an airline from the ground up. That’s the mountain Los Angeles startup Surf Air is hoping to summit. The company announced their plans for an all-you-can-fly, membership-based service to enormous fanfare this summer, and raised $3.76 million in VC and angel funding upon graduating from Santa Monica’s MuckerLab accelerator. Now it’s slowly checking “to do” items off its long and ambitious list.
