  2. Houzz's torrid growth comes down to the three C's: Content, Commerce, and Community

    In Silicon Valley, tales of startups growing at outrageous rates are a dime a dozen. In too many cases, however, those growth narratives are carefully crafted by PR crack teams to highlight the appropriate vanity metrics, while ignoring the mundane or even unhealthy businesses laying below the surface. For example, a headline-worthy 1,000 percent growth rate is not that meaningful when it’s from 1,000 monthly active users to 11,000, and all of those users are free. That same rate of growth within a larger business or one that monetizes its audience effectively is a far different story.

  4. Siasto Tasks: Project management, front-and-center

    "The best camera is the one that's with you." That quote has been repeated ad nauseam since smartphone cameras started going mainstream, a reminder that a tool's usefulness is limited by convenience with all the subtlety of a purple elephant smacking someone upside the head with a pillowcase full of batteries. Still, the sentiment rings true, and can be applied to any number of other tools, from hammers and saws to calendaring and weather apps.

  5. Dispatch's redesign allows for beautiful, email-free collaboration. Well, mostly email-free.

    Given PandoDaily's well-documented turmoil with cloud collaboration tools, I was excited to check out Dispatch, a New York company that launched its browser-based collaboration tools out of TechCrunch Disrupt last fall. The company launched a major overhaul and redesign this week.
