When is a Start Up no longer a Start Up?
I find it interesting how long companies like to keep the “start up” tagline associated with their business. For example, take a look at the Facebook jobs page and you’ll note they use the term start up several times. Everyone knows their “start up” story, but a company that SIZE, in terms of finances, staff, and age, is it really cool to keep calling your self a...
Light Table - Very Cool Kickstarter Project Despite the dramatic shift toward simplification in software interfaces, the world of development tools continues to shrink our workspace with feature after feature in every release.

The Value of Unoriginality →
This is an interesting debate. Personally, I think it depends on the scenario. For example, when I was reading this article I starting thinking about the music industry. Musicians always pull their inspiration from other music they like, and a lot of music “sounds like so and so”. Is there something wrong with that? Can we not be inspired and also use elements of that inspiration in...
