This is very neat. If you have a WordPress site and are looking to setup a fundraising campaign or take donations, there's no need to pay for expensive systems anymore! 
Give is the most flexible, robust, and easy to use WordPress plugin for accepting donations on your WordPress-powered website.

What do launching a product and learning to swim have in common?

If you've been paying attention then you know that SIDEKICK recently missed our launch date for Composer. While that sucked, upon reflection it really was nothing more than the equivalent of sinking to the bottom of the pool after trying something on our own.

We need to talk about this. All of us.
 
Help keep the net innovative, fast and fair. 
We interrupt your regularly scheduled blog post about interactive education and running a startup to bring you a very important message: If Net Neutrality dies then so does the internet as we know it. This is an incredibly important issue and one worthy of as many blog posts, phone calls and letters that we can muster. If ...More you read must! »

Announcing SIDEKICK Corporate Policy #1: “First, do what’s right”. http://www.sidekick.pro/blog/team/rule-1-right-thing/ 
When I visited the WP Engine office last year they gave me a few t-shirts (surprise surprise right?). Amongst those awesome, Seth designed shirts was one that simply says “To Do List: The right thing”. On the back is says “Culture: Powered by WP Engine”. I love this shirt.

Delicious! We had the thin crust, amazing. Order a whole pizza if you are doing more than one slice. It's the same price!

Dr.Cohen is excellent. He knows his stuff and has helped me immensely with both correcting an old injury and helping me maintain a strong back and shoulders. He genuinely cares about his patients and I highly recommend him if you're looking for a chiropractor and/or physiotherapist.

The BEST Middle Eastern food in the city. Fresh bread, crispy fries, fresh meat, great Hummus and all-round awesome salads. There are a few things to be said for their service being a little slow sometimes but it's usually because they are rammed with people and the staff are actually incredibly nice. Go there. Support them. Enjoy it.
