    Every day I get at least one email from a new, shared work space, accelerator, or incubator. They’ve been popping up everywhere over the last two years.

  8. How to get Sir Richard Branson's undivided attention

Maui gathering, which includes 150 of their closest friends in the tech community who meet each year to collaborate on their startups and play extreme sports.
