    StartX, an incubator spun out of Stanford in 2010, held its ninth Demo Day last night in Palo Alto.

  7. Kickstarter and the view from the trenches of TechShop

    Blaine Dehmlow, the general manager of the TechShop in San Francisco, describes what has become a tradition of sorts at the well-known building place that provides members access to tools and software: An entrepreneur sits down at a computer in the center of the second floor studio with a bottle of champagne in hand.
