Steven Blank is a startup legend and the resources list on his website is invaluable for any startup that takes itself serious. Make good use of it! (But don't to forget to keep going – keep it LEAN)

Interesting perspective:

"A company is a modern-day tribe. Hiring someone for your company is akin to having a child," Sinek said in a well-received TED talk Friday. "If you have hard times in your family, would you ever consider laying off one of your children? We would never do it. Then why do we consider laying off people inside our organizations?" 

Some truth in it I guess although not all people are a fit for every organization. You can't always be right in the recruiting process.

After arguing with (arguably) allies in science communication I was fed up. Fed up with the attitude that unattributed images are just a (small) sacrifice for the net good of science communication to the populace at large. Fed up that photographers, cartoonists & illustrators are considered by many to be lesser professions than scientists & educators. Fed up that rapid image sharing (oh I’m sorry: “curation”) can trample so many creators and yet lead to fame and fortune.

Interesting proposal for an awareness campaign about the importance of imagery in our media and the disrespect for photographers in terms of licensing images. Any thoughts?
