  1. Shared wisdom: Year-end thoughts from some of the industry's best

    I often stop and reflect on how blessed I am to have access to the minds of some of the greatest investors and entrepreneurs across the startup and technology landscape. Sure many of the choicest morsels are shared off the record over a quiet cocktail, or cup of coffee, but many of the most sought after influencers and thought leaders freely share their wisdom publicly via their blogs and through social media. It's arguably the biggest advantage to anyone looking to make their way in this unforgiving industry today, as compared to a decade ago.

  2. New year’s resolutions for aspiring entrepreneurs

    Welcome to 2013. Did you accomplish everything you wanted to last year? If you did, congratulations. For those of you who are looking back on the past year and thinking, “Well, that didn’t turn out the way I planned,” the bright side is you get to start over. Today is day one of 365 and to make sure you don’t waste another 12 months, I’d like to offer a few thoughts on how to make 2013 more productive than 2012.

  3. Competitors in the connected car space thrash it out on the track

    Sonoma Raceway is not your typical venue for a business meeting -- unless you’re a professional driver or pit crew. But Chris Hulls, CEO of Life360, the maker of a mobile family locator app, wanted to find a place where entrepreneurs in the connected car space, including competitors, could meet on neutral turf.

  5. And you wonder why the Valley disdains Washington

    At midnight last night, amid sloppy kisses, drunken toasts, faking you knew the words with Auld Lang Syne, and screaming at a big lit up ball, the Senate decided to actually do its job and finally pass a would-be solution to the Fiscal Cliff crisis they created and have spent the end of 2012 exploiting for their own posturing gains.

  6. With peer pressure and actionable advice, HelloFax aims to kill paper in 2013 (for good this time)

    It's incredible how much time that a tech blogger like me spends thinking about paper. Every time another startup pitches me on their plan to "kill paper, for good this time!" I think, "I can't believe this is still a problem that needs solving." From my Silicon Valley-tinted view of the world and roaming coffee shop cubicle, I can't help but assume paper is as extinct as the fax machine.

  7. The party is over: Practical startup advice for surviving an austere 2013

    Fiscal cliffs. Series A crunches. Down-rounds and startup deaths. This is starting to sound more like Halloween than New Year, a zombie or ghoul around every corner, waiting with an ax to take to your company’s jugular. Unfortunately this isn’t make believe. It’s yet another "new normal" in an ever-changing startup environment. It’s not new, however. It’s a remake of an old movie – same script, different director and cast.

  8. Finally, a year when mobile doesn't seem like a two-horse race

    Writing about mobile feels a lot like writing about politics during an election year. Contenders are simplified into easily understood archetypes -- "Mitt Romney hates Big Bird!" "iOS is nothing but a walled garden!" -- and seen as "evil" or "good," numbers are crunched as onlookers quantify the race to the top -- or, as no one has ever said, "Gettin' their Nate Silver on" -- and the contest is made to seem like there are only two candidates, despite other parties -- the Green Party, Windows Phone, etc. -- vying for that top spot. But maybe, just maybe, 2013 will be a little different.
