The Staircase To Bumsville And Back
The United States’ best ally in the war against radical Islam is the one that the State Department either refuses to see or chooses to ignore: the people of Iran. Anti-mullah sentiment is widespread in the country, particularly among the women and the youth, who courageously stand up to the regime that can beat, jail, and torture them without fear of reprisal or punishment from the international community. Yet, even when facing the personification of evil, the Iranian people stand strong and are in search of allies in the West to broadcast their message. The recent events at Amir Kabir University in Tehran serve as a testament ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Zynga Has a New Investor and Social Gaming Platform Provider: Google
It’s going to be difficult, over the coming week, to avoid the story of Google’s investment of $100 to $200 million in Zynga, the world’s largest social gaming company.

If true, it’s a bombshell, and could mean Google will be getting into the social gaming market in a big way relatively soon, potentially as a way to build our more social-network like services that could help it compete with Facebook more directly than it has been able ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
IPhone moms turn ideas into kid-friendly apps
New to San Francisco, Jill Seman needed to get to know the city with her toddler. Good neighborhood playgrounds. Fun places to go if it rained. Restaurants that didn't turn up their noses at children. Her explorations became the basis for her free iPhone app, Mom Maps. Using the iPhone's GPS, the application finds nearby restaurants, parks, museums and play spaces that are mom-tested, kid-approved. Initially a humble collection of 100 sites in San Francisco, it has since expanded to the rest of the Bay Area and 21 other metro areas, mapping and cataloging more than 20,000 child-friendly locations.

Mayor McGinn » Seattle applies for Google Fiber for Communities
Today Mayor Mike McGinn announced that the city of Seattle will respond to Google’s Request for Information (RFI) to build ultra-high speed broadband networks in communities across America.
