  1. Reid Hoffman: Entrepreneurs Need Optimism, Even When "Assembling the Plane on the Way Down"

    Tonight at the fireside chat between LinkedIn cofounder Reid Hoffman and Sarah Lacy, Lacy asked Hoffman when entrepreneurs should enter the market, and whether or not being overly optimistic is valuable.

  3. PivotDesk Is Making a Play for Startup Office Space Everywhere

    Airbnb and Uber have been pretty successful so far, providing solid experiences for users and suppliers. But the idea of reclaiming unused space, like livery cars and spare bedrooms, and reselling it to other parties isn’t stopping there. Today, PivotDesk is exiting the TechStars program, and is looking to take Airbnb’s unused bedroom model and apply it to unused office space.

  4. Ubooly's Lovable iPhone Toy Is Not Your Average Stuffed Animal

    The best part about trying out new products is when you have a "wow moment." For example, when you connect with long lost friends on Facebook for the first time. Or when photos of your relative's newborn baby show up on Instagram. They make the service incredibly sticky, and more importantly, they make the service worth using.

  5. Mocavo Connects the Hidden Dots for Genealogists

    Genealogy. The study of generational knowledge. It’s a curiosity for most, a hobby for many, and an obsession for some. Yet despite the wide range of interest in the subject, it’s surprising that the market for it is so underdeveloped.

  6. App.net Is Like a Cool Glass of Water in a Desert of Ad-Supported Social Networks

    App.net is really strange. The experimental Twitter-competitor being created by Dalton Caldwell has gotten plenty of attention in the last month, something real seems to be going on. The excitement is palpable among the few hundred users that have been manually added to the service -- myself included -- and there seems to be a clear promise of a better social network moving forward.

  7. The Key To Developing on Twitter's Platform Is Being Complementary

    There has been quite a bit of consternation on the part of developers over Twitter’s future in the past month or so. The fault lies with Twitter, because of communication issues, but also with followers of the company, who don’t necessarily understand where the company is headed.

  8. Tweets-for-Equity Startup Wahooly Just Got a Little More Secure with CapLinked Partnership

    Up until recently, it wasn’t clear what value social influence would have. There is the advertising value, sure, but no clear way to translate influence online into real money.
