Why Startup Hubs Work

If you look at a list of US cities sorted by population, the number of successful startups per capita varies by orders of magnitude. Somehow it's as if most places were sprayed with startupicide.

I wondered about this for years. I could see the average town was like a roach motel for startup ambitions: smart, ambitious people went in, but no startups came out. But I was never able to figure out exactly what happened inside the motel—exactly what was killing all the potential startups.

Occupy’s 84-year-old pepper spray victim: Is this the most iconic image of the movement? | Collateral Websurfing | Scoop.it
When Occupy marched in downtown Seattle on Tuesday night, a priest, a pregnant teenager and an 84-year-old community activist were doused in pepper spray. Although there have been many striking images of violence and peace in Occupy encampments, and many faces of the movement, none may be as immediately striking as this image of Dorli Rainey, taken by Joshua Trujillo.

An Interview with Evan Hamilton from UserVoice | Knowledge Bird

An Interview with Evan Hamilton from UserVoice | Knowledge Bird | Collateral Websurfing | Scoop.it

I took a look at UserVoice a couple of weeks ago when a blog entry of theirs turned up in my RSS reader. As said on the website, they’re a San Francisco-based startup focused on helping companies listen to their customers through feedback and support tools. They’re passionate about understanding and engagement, which was obvious when Evan Hamilton, UserVoice’s Community Manager, responded to one of my tweets. He seemed like a nice enough guy, so I asked if he’d participate in an email interview about UserVoice and the role of knowledge management.
