You've probably read the NYT innovation report that was leaked a few weeks ago. Over at the +Van Patten Media blog, +Lindsay Doebler wrote up some lessons for small business owners from the report.

This week on Not a Real Job, +Joel Kelly and I chatted with Oz Hatke, creator of the awesome party game Düdle about the Kickstarter process. A must-listen if you're considering crowdfunding!
