Every Friday, mbStartups joins GalleyCat editor Jason Boog on the Morning Media Menu to discuss the week’s biggest headlines.
If this week’s unexpected snowfall in New York City taught us anything, it’s that we should make sure that winter is really over before we start shopping for bathing suits. In the startup world, investors might see how other companies fare before dropping millions of dollars on expensive technology. Color, a social photo-sharing app, just raised $41 million from Sequoia Capital, Bain Capital, and Silicon Valley Bank before the app had even launched. Today on the Morning Media Menu, we discussed TechCrunch’s fears that the investment signals another bubble.
In the literary sphere, new forums for wordsmithery have made for some interesting headlines. Some writers are going undercover with ghostwriting services like this week’s Startup of the Week, Gotham Bookwriters. Others are using social media for very public feuds, like this Twitter exchange between two famous authors.
