You may recall a little while back we posted about #GetStarted2014, a great competition for which we teamed up with Simpleweb and Rackspace to find and cultivate the best new idea. With a prize offering of $70,000 worth of services to help make an entrepreneurial dream come true and some of the best judges around (including […]
Chances are, you know – or have at some point known – a 5-year-old kid. There’s tons of them out there, so I feel safe in my assumption that you can picture what he looks like, what his mannerisms might be, and perhaps even what it might sound like for him to ask to be […]
