  1. Does anybody care about non-entrepreneurs?

    The recent spate of suicides have brought to light the pressures of entrepreneurship, but it seems to have reached a level that almost sounds like self pity. Yes, entrepreneurs deal with a lot of stress -- I wrote about it myself -- but let’s be very clear about one thing. Entrepreneurs are still the lucky ones.

  2. Now this is how you announce a new product: WePay gets creative with its iOS launch

    Part of the challenge for any startup is getting people to know and love your product. This is particularly important in categories where there are numerous larger, better funded incumbents. The online payments category, with Web 1.0 giant PayPal, and new challengers Square, Stripe, Braintree, and certainly qualifies as such an industry.

  3. What potato growers could teach entrepreneurs

    Yesterday I was on Capitol Hill in Washington DC with a group of startups that was visiting members of Congress and their staffers as part of an advocacy tour organized by Engine Advocacy. In the afternoon, we were stalking the halls of the Cannon House Office Building, which houses the offices of members of the US House of Representatives. On our way to a meeting room to meet with some Democratic lawmakers, we passed by an event hosted by the National Potato Council, “Standing Up For Potatoes On Capitol Hill.”

  4. The defenestration of Andrew Mason

    Andrew Mason has his own kind of panache. Not the epic, Steve Jobs panache. Or the eclectic, Barry Diller panache. Or even the oafish, Steve Ballmer panache. But as a CEO of one of the fastest-growing startups in history, he had the small-scale, misfit quirkiness of an indie movie. Panache-ette.

  8. Apple reportedly censors iCloud emails, embracing its role as the nanny of technology

    Both InfoWorld and Macworld (both operated by the IDG Network) report that Apple has been blocking and deleting messages that contain the phrase "barely legal teen." The inclusion of the phrase, which is popular on pornographic websites -- or so I was told by a friend, wink -- in a message sends it straight to email Hell, which is a redundancy if I've ever heard one. Macworld tried this out for themselves, writing: Macworld has tested this by sending two test emails from a personal iCloud account. The message read "My friend's son is already allowed to drive his high-powered car. It's ridiculous. He's a barely legal teenage driver? What on earth is John thinking."
