Weekly Roundup


What is it about the nature of a successful startup that gives it an edge over competitors? (via ReadWriteWeb):

"Friday morning, Wesabe co-founder Marc Hedlund posted a blog titled 'Why Wesabe Lost to Mint'  in which he explains his opinions on just that. From his perspective (which he admits is anything but un-biased), Mint won because they hustled to make users happy - not one of the other 'utter crap' reasons he disagrees with."

Moving to San Diego? Our client Z57 is among the best for workplace happiness (via RISMedia):

“Z57 Inc., a real estate online marketing company, was recognized as one of San Diego’s top three places to work. In the San Diego Union-Tribune’s 14th annual 2010 San Diego’s Best Readers’ Poll, Z57 ranked third in the San Diego Life category of Best Place to Work. Z57 has 155 employees and serves thousands of real estate industry clients nationwide."

A traditional sales perspective contrasts the technology race (via Inman):

"The race for better and faster technology has arguably replaced the rat race. We all know now who moved our cheese: Technology did. Call me old-fashioned, but I prefer the rat race. At least I knew where I was going, what I had to do, and who would win."
