SlideShare is a great platform for visual content and an amazing company: in just a few years, it has become the YouTube of presentations, one of the Top 150 sites in the world with an impressive 3 Billion views per month from 60 million unique visitors. Perhaps like many others, I originally thought of SlideShare as a platform to use only on specific occasions: when I had talked at a conference, when we had produced great slides worth sharing or when we had something specifically visual to communicate.

Federal lawmakers included crowdfunding in the 2012 Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act as a way to ease financing to small businesses. The SEC's proposed rules will be open 90 days for public comment.
While companies will be capped at raising $1 million per year through equity crowdfunding, Shmerling said it's an option for startups looking to raise under $100,000 to create an initial concept, prototype or business model.
From the perspective of technology breakthroughs -- and the industries and good jobs that often result from them -- the 20th century can fairly be called the American Century. But the outlook for the 21st century is far less clear....
