  1. Sink Or Ship Holds Your Wallet Hostage to Ensure Your Projects Ship On Time

    Procrastinators of the world, unite! There are projects that need finishing, now! Or, well, eventually. Maybe not today — I mean, come on, "Supertroopers" is on TNT tonight. Plus, you've spent this long working on it, what's one more weekend spent figuring out how to make it SoLoMo and freemium with an emphasis on your social graph, crowd sourcing, and as many other buzzwords as you can possibly cram in?

  2. PandoList: Top Webizens, or Politically-Minded Techies

    We're back with another balls-to-the wall edition of the PandoList, and this time we spoke to some politically-minded techies, aka "Webizens."
