Use the Internet to view Android/Java code samples.

Where would Android application development be if there was “No Internet”?
Access to the Internet is what makes it easier to create apps that can run on Android devices. If there was “No Internet”, it would be more difficult and more expensive to develop Android apps.
By narrowing its focus to women, Yahoo can beat the pants off its competitors.
By Dave McClure (Founder & Partner, 500 Startups)
I’d like to write a different open letter to Marissa Mayer that plays to both her strengths, as well as those of Yahoo. It’s a bit off the wall, but if you think it thru with me, I bet you’ll agree with the strategy.
Yahoo has struggled for the last 6-7 years – with what it stands for, who’s running the show, how to keep its employees, how to compete with Google, and how to take advantage of its amazing assets in content, communications, and community around the world. The last really bold move Yahoo made was probably acquiring Flickr (aside from turning down the Microsoft acquisition
Where are the women disrupting the way entertainment is produced, consumed, distributed?
By Angie Chang (Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Women 2.0)
Entertainment is a huge industry traditionally generated by Hollywood. From concerts to movies, we’re always looking for things to do, places to go, people to see.
Museums, shopping, art galleries, even food are part of the big entertainment business for people to consume, purchase, experience.
Where are the opportunities for disruption in entertainment? We’re also curious to find female-founded startups that disrupt the way consume entertainment?
From tech giants Cisco and VMware to startups ModCloth and Lynda, married co-founders are everywhere.
Join us at Founder Friday San Francisco on May 4, 2012 with host Julia Harz from Eventbrite!

Eventbrite, the online service that people everywhere use to create, share, and join any event imaginable, has been used internationally.
By creating an easy-to-use product and integrating with PayPal, we have enjoyed organic usage in over 170 countries. In fact, before making any efforts at localizing our site, over 20% of our total transactions were occurring outside of the US. So naturally, we saw a big opportunity in the global events space.
In 2010, we decided to make a concerted effort to localize our site and expand internationally. We knew that the UK would
There will be no shortage of women entrepreneurs at SXSWi. Here are just a few of the many female founders speaking.

Are there three things you’d like to accomplish in your career or business that for some reason or other you haven’t been able to accomplish? What do you think stops you from achieving these things? Not enough time, not enough support, information, opportunity, something else?
That something else may just be a gentle but persistent unwillingness to put yourself out there and pull the trigger. There are many reasons belying this, mostly along the lines of fear of failure and lack of trust. After all, what if you got it wrong?

When Brian Sugar ponders an executive decision at his high-tech startup here, all he has to do for quick advice is instant-message his business partner -— on the other end of the living-room couch.
His wife, Lisa Sugar, agrees that their 5-year-old online women’s network, aptly named Sugar, should make a key personnel move. In between shop talk, they comment on the San Francisco Giants game they’re watching on TV, after tucking the kids into bed.
Unconventional, yes, but this tech tandem has thrived.

Recently, I read a post from three-time-start-upper Penelope Trunk, founder of Brazeen Careerist, about why she stepped down from her startup. Interestingly enough, Penelope also thinks that women don’t want to do startups because they are under pressure to have children.

Last night I attended the event, “Face to Face: The Women Behind the Brands,” sponsored by Gilt City. Present were founding members and key executives from brands like Minted, Eventbrite, Decorati, SkinnyScoop, Ecomom and others.
Over champagne and mini cupcakes, each woman gave an interesting fact about herself before presenting her business. Interestingly, the personal story that each woman revealed was intimately tied to her company’s product. The companies were launched as an extension of personal passion.
Founder Mariam Naficy of the crowd-sourced site Minted had a personal interest in fine stationary and the (hand) written word. While dating her husband they wrote letters to each other for three years when he lived in Japan. However, you don’t have to be in a long distance relationship to appreciate accessible designs. Minted has been growingly rapidly as remote designers are connected to the stationary savvy. Minted’s first contest had 600 entrants. Their last one had over 2,500. “I am bringing talent from all over the world to the buyer!” Mariam said.
Larissa Dinh, Co-Founder and Head of Product for Skinny Scoop, an information sharing site for women, is not only passionate about creating lists, but also for creating a product for women. “Most male designers think they can take some object, paint it pink, and it’s for a woman, “ she said. Larissa, however, paints more than just pink and works hard to create something uniquely of value for female information seekers. “The web is like my canvas.”
