Frank Adams’ three tips for your next VC pitch meeting [Baltimore Business Journal]: “Don’t insist your company is without competition.”
Digital Harbor: Baltimore Rising [Getting Smart]: “In Baltimore, [Andrew] Coy senses ‘an increased sense of cohesion and collaborative momentum.’ Me too.”
Introducing Strongbox [The New Yorker]: “The New Yorker launched Strongbox, an online place where people can send documents and messages to the magazine, and we, in turn, can offer them a reasonable amount of anonymity. It was put together by Aaron Swartz, who died in January, and Kevin Poulsen.”
