  1. Good bunch of links this week! Always a pleasure reading.

    I feel the need to bring up the post about by Michael Galpert. It makes me sad when half the apps people recommend are specific to New York or San Francisco. These are not recommendations, but touts for how trendy you are. Why not make recommendations for apps or services that have made it beyond the incubation period and are actually useful to your readership?

    That aside, it’s a pretty good list.

  2. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I really appreciate your
    efforts and I will be waiting for your further post thanks
    once again.
