What’s common to video game addicts and gym superstars?

Random bits I found interesting Wednesday through Saturday:

  • Twitter Bootstrap library - http://twitter.github.com/bootstrap/. Awesome CSS and HTML toolkit to create pretty grids, modals, buttons and more. The Twitter style
  • Quora was initially populated by questions from the Quora founders. Then they would spend 2-3 hours researching the topic, distilling different ideas and writing a high-quality answer. Sometimes unscalable things can make things scalable!
  • The part of the screening process at Sequoia Capital is the question: ‘Which of the 7 deadly sins does your startup address?’
  • ‘Interactive Itinerary Planning’ - cool paper from Google Research on the problem we tried to tackle on hackNY, as well as Facebook Hackathon.
  • There is a great deal correlation between the video game addicts and the gym/workout superstars. Both are about the singular focus. The web startup ‘Fitocracy’ is occupying this niche: http://www.fitocracy.com/
