They say ‘mention my presentation with the XYZ hashtag’ or ‘like us on Facebook to see back-channel conversations’ and whatnot. But all of that is passive participation. Lucky for you, we just stumbled across a new tool that’s designed to incorporate live tweets into your presentation.

9 Gorgeously Illustrated Quotes From Great Thinkers “I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognized wiser than oneself," Marlene Dietrich, a wise woman with much authority herself, once quotably said. In Whatever You Are, Be a Good One, Oakland, California-based illustrator Lisa Congdon whimsically hand-letters 100 such beautifully expressed thoughts from creative thinkers, including Leo Tolstoy, David Foster Wallace, Charlotte Brontë, John Keats, Marie Curie, and Abraham Lincoln (who's quoted in the book's title).

Airbnb.com: Necessity Begets Creativity Three years ago, Brian Chesky had just arrived in San Francisco with not much more than a memory foam mattress and a dwindling bank account. He had two problems: no job, and no money to make rent. Today, Chesky lives exclusively in mansions, tepees, apartments, and castles.

How a UK startup fixed the Airbnb calendar availability problem without being asked One common theme when technical discussions turn to Person-to-Person (P2P) marketplaces is the concept of availability control. For example, the recently loaded AirBnB has individuals with a room or property which it then promotes and sells to individual travellers. One accusation aimed at these P2P sites is that individuals (on the supply side), generally, are not so great at keeping availability calendars correct. The challenge is magnified when the same property is on multiple listing sites. When one booking is received, this requires the individual to log in to multiple websites and block the corresponding dates. Too much work!
