The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Emailers How often does this happen? You start the day with great intentions for barreling through a list of priorities. But at quitting time, you've only accomplished one: getting (most of) your email answered and filed. Founders Den classes up San Francisco’s co-working scene Serial entrepreneur Jonathan Abrams is adding a little class to the co-working model with a new office called the Founders Den. Now, I’m a big fan of some of San Francisco’s other co-working spaces, where very early companies (or, in some cases, anyone else who’s interested) can share an office. But I’ll admit that they get a lot of their charm from their scrappiness. I think the quintessential co-working team is a pair or trio of programmers in their twenties, looking like they walked straight from their bedroom to the office, crammed around a couple of desks, coding. Abrams, who previously founded Socializr, Friendster, and HotLinks, doesn’t fit into that model.
Executive PayWatch 2010 I came to the United States from Mexico in 2006, driven by a dream we all share: a better life for my family. What I found, however, is suffering.

Probably Last Updated Jul 12, 2011 6:16 PM EDT When things don't go your way, it's a hell of a lot easier to blame it on someone else than take personal responsibility for what happened. Come on, don't sit there and tell me you've never done that. Of course you have. Everybody has. I mean, doesn't it feel really good to go home and rant about your lunatic boss who makes your life a living hell or your coworker who got the promotion you deserved?
Centennial On the occasion of our 100th anniversary in 2013, we reflected on our past accomplishments and worked with the global community to highlight the innovations that will help poor or vulnerable people throughout the world over the next 100 years. Issues that were once largely confined to individual nations or regions — such as climate change and urbanization — now are clearly global in character. Technology has accelerated change across the planet and altered the way people live. Citizen movements are compelling reforms that were unimaginable only a short time ago. Solutions to today's challenges involve a complex mix of actors that include governments, nonprofits, foundations, civil society and the business sector in major new ways. Our centennial was also a moment to look ahead, to analyze which global issues will dominate the next decade and beyond, and to sculpt new ideas for addressing them.
