  3. Attention founders: Here's how you respond to an unfair post about your company

    A week or so ago, I wrote about Sendicate, a startup that aims to provide much-needed innovation in the email newsletter arena. In the post, I referenced a couple of Sendicate's much more established competitiors including MailChimp which we use to send our daily NSFWCORP emails.

  4. A tip for designers, from designers: Don't be an egotistical jerk

    Even Jony Ive, arguably the most revered designer in the country – and maybe the world – needs to play nice. He was recently appointed new responsibilities as a result of the Apple management shakeup that took place last month. With Scott Forstall ousted, the industrial design czar will take on new duties in software design. But even with Ive’s high profile, one former Apple designer says he can’t just storm in and impose his will on his new team.

  6. The squid and the jellyfish: Why Nokia, RIM, and Microsoft got the Economist cover snub

    Everyone wants to believe in rebirth. Whether it’s the story of an orphan becoming a wealthy businessman, a former addict taking control of her life, or – to go all corporate on you – a business edging back from the brink of destruction, many of us have a fundamental urge to root for the big turn-around. As RIM, Nokia, Microsoft, and perhaps a dozen other veteran technology companies (I’m talking about you, HP, and your pal, Dell) face this inexorable sinking towards the abyss, the dramatic tension tightens, promising, if all goes according to the script, of a thrilling success story.

  7. With Betable partnership, SGN is the latest gaming company to prep for real-money gambling

    Real-money online gambling is heading toward the US like a freight train, and gaming companies are beginning to take the steps necessary to hop aboard. The latest news out of the space comes from Los Angeles game publisher SGN (Social Gaming Network) with today’s announcement that the company is partnering with real-money gaming provider Betable. SGN will roll out Betable powered games overseas beginning in Q1 2013, and will begin preparing for the changes in US policy which many close to the situation have described as “imminent” and “inevitable.”

  8. HackPad is expanding its reach, maybe even to the White House

    Normally, the words "hack" and "The White House" in the same sentence would be a national security crisis, full of FBI investigations and prison sentences. But for the San Francisco-based startup HackPad, it was actually the White House that came calling. Just after the election, the government reached out to the company about having its teams use HackPad’s collaborative platform, which has been compared to Google Docs, but with a Web developer’s slant.
