Shared by JFoote From one of my favorite authors: Karl Schroeder, a fantastic science fiction author (see this review for a taste of his work) has spent the past two years in a Master’s programme in Foresight at the Ontario College of Art and Design. In this guest essay on Charlie Stross’s blog, he describes the way that structured study of the future interacts with science fiction. Karl is always the furthest-out guy I know — he was the person I first heard the word “fractal” and “SGML” from, long before they’d entered the popular consciousness. If you’re afraid of[…]Read more...
Shared by JFoote Might Give this a whirl A new app lets you track all your meals, gamifying eating healthy and making what you eat a social activity. Is this the new Weight Watchers? How much food did you eat yesterday? What about the day before? You probably know generally, but we're in an age now of hyper measurements of personal data and it's high time you could track what you had eaten every day and every meal. That's what new startup Foodzy helps you do. There are also obvious health benefits. If you can measure your food, you can[…]Read more...

Do you ever wonder how all those products end up on the shelves of your favorite retailer? Here are some case studies of small businesses who cracked the code.One of the most common ways to start a business is to begin selling a product that you've either made or designed.

But at some point, you've also thought about how to take your product line to the big-box big[…]Read more...

That was the email subject line that greeted Jerry Neumann, a venture capitalist, one morning in 2009. The sender: his former employee Josh Reich, a Wall Street denizen so fed up with his personal-banking experience -- the hidden fees, the confusing jargon, the poor customer service -- that he vowed to build a[…]Read more...

For businesses just starting out (and even for businesses that are already established), writing a business plan that bankers and investors can understand can be difficult. What is the point of a business plan? A good one will not only communicate to the people who could help fund your project what you want to do, but it can also help you objectively see the potential risks involved in your projects.

Filed under: Trailers and Clips, Movie News, Video We know we weren't the only ones to be punked by the first 'Muppets' trailer, which started out like a cheesy romantic comedy starring Amy Adams and Jason Segel -- that is, until Kermit and Ms. Piggy crashed the party. Well, the Muppets are back at it again, this time spoofing a specific film instead of an entire genre.
