How is Baltimore perceived by people in tech startup hotbed areas? [Quora]: “I’ve never heard anyone utter the word ‘Baltimore’ while living here in Silicon Valley.”

Don’t send passwords over e-mail or instant messenger [Mike Subelsky’s blog]: “I usually ask people to use Keyvault which lets you send encrypted, short-lived, self-destructing messages accessible only by a unique key.”
