Congratulations are in order…

For my cohost Patrick Foley, as he starts a new monthly column for startups over at Visual Studio Magazine. His first article, Lean Startup: Look Before You Leap is a must read if you still think the way to create your startup is to code first, everything else later.

And, kudos to David Schenberg, CEO of BusyEvent for being selected for the Capital Innovators Program. The program provides $50,000 in seed funding, mentorship from a seasoned pool of knowledgeable entrepreneurs, stellar perks, educational and social events, and the opportunity to pitch to angel investors and venture capitalist firms at the end of the program. Way to go David!

  1. Excellent! Can’t wait to read.

  2. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    • On one hand, there’s no practical way to prevent people from taking your web copy, sticking their name on it, and pretending it’s there’s. On the other, You should make sure that all of your copy is identified via the Canonical Tag so that Google and other search engines will know its yours and treat imitators accordingly.
