  1. Eating Google Fiber: Cash-Strapped Non-Profit Bridges Digital Divide

    Round these parts of the Internet, we’re used to dealing with $1 billion valuations and $10 million A rounds, but sometimes $10,000 can go a long way to changing the world – or at least a little corner of it.

  2. The New Middle East: Women at the Center of a Startup Ecosystem, Pt. 3

    Ask any woman in the Middle East startup community about her greatest challenge, and the first things you'll hear are familiar to any entrepreneur. Can I do this? Will anyone care How do I choose from a hundred different priorities? When do I raise money? How should I hire? Can I move fast enough? Press a little further and equally universal themes come up for women, but with some regional sensitivities added.

  5. LocalSpin: I Eat, You Eat, Let's Find Out Where to Eat Together!

    It's amazing how often technology comes back to food. Apps like Yelp let people review what they're eating; Evernote Food helps people remember what they ate; and RunKeeper or Fitbit aim to get the overeating-induced flabby bits under control. This parody video, which claims that people only use the iPhone to take pictures of their food, is probably more accurate than most would care to admit.

  6. Want a Spiffy New RebelMouse Page? Let Paul Berry Know, and He'll Build One For You

    When you meet someone new, a professional contact, a prospective employer, or even a new friend who's just not ready to see your nature on Facebook, which website do you send them to? You could give them your Twitter page, but that only provides a snapshot of what you're doing, sharing, and talking about right now. You could send them to your personal blog but, honestly, when was the last time you updated that? I'm sure your thoughts on the Lost finale were mind-blowing and elegantly-stated, but that's old news, pal.

  7. Obama vs Romney 2012: The Most Transparent Election Yet

    Although we’d like to think that democracy is neat, tidy, and just, when it comes to election time it becomes overrun by politics, which itself turns into a shouting match. Obamacare will destroy America! Romney hates poor people! Ryan is a liar! Biden is a fool! You know the drill.

  8. Abandoned for Years, Web 2.0 Tool EasyBib Is Now a Thriving Business

    EasyBib started out as a simple high school kid hack to make then-students Darshan Somashekar and Neal Taparia's research notes simpler. The bare bones tools created online bibliographies for students' essays. It was a hit even back then as the first of its kind, but the guys abandoned it come graduation. Their parents pressured them to take jobs in the corporate world and one did--Taparia went Lehman Brothers. Somashekar started, which sold to Facebook in 2010.
