    The Mommy Shift: A Tech-Savvy Re-Entry Strategy

    Lists of resources for busy moms to investigating what things have changed post-hiatus.

    By Melissa Llarena (CEO & Founder, Career Outcomes Matter)

    Any mom’s return to work can be successful and lasting. To accomplish these goals, a mom has to evaluate, prepare, and adjust her reentry plans based on market changes, role expectations and, of course, her own shift in mind set. Thus, changes relevant to the three categories diagrammed above, those in the: MARKET, ROLE, and MOM are the ones that matter most.

    Tech Talk: Frontend Vs. Backend

    The frontend is the part of a web site that you can see and interact with, while the backend is all the rest.

    By Adda Birnir (Co-Founder, Balance Media & Skillcrush)

    The frontend is the part of a web site that you can see and interact with, while the backend is all the rest.

    You know how the tip of an iceberg pokes out above the water, but they’re really hundreds of feet deep? That’s a lot like a web site. The parts you see and interact with on a web site – the buttons, the dropdown menus and big bold fonts – make up the frontend.

    The frontend of a web site has specific technologies attached to it. HTML makes up the text on the page, CSS makes it pretty, and JavaScript makes it interactive.

    Join The Changemakers #SocEntChat On Women And Technology (August 1)

    Bridge the technology divide on August 1 in a discussion about social entrepreneurship.

    By Dani Matielo (Community Manager, Ashoka Changemakers)

    Life for women and girls in the 21st century can be a challenge. Every day, millions of women worldwide deal with a gender and technology divide that leaves them underrepresented at every level of the pyramid. Change is on the horizon as awareness of this issue grows.

    E-learning initiatives are helping to make education more inclusive, particularly for women in low- and middle-income countries; civil society organizations and for-profit businesses are also getting involved by encouraging women to consider careers in tech-focused fields, from engineering to design.

    Think You Have What It Takes To Start A Business? (Triptrotting)

    How to convince a software engineer to join your early-stage tech startup.

    By Edward Kim (Senior Engineer, Triptrotting)

    Almost once a week, I get a random phone call, email, message, etc. It goes something like this: “Hey Eddie, I’ve got this million dollar idea. I just need a programmer to make it.”

    Before I go on any further, if you’re an engineer, I’m sure this already sounds familiar to you.

    “I checked and there’s nothing like this out there. It’s sort of like Facebook but better. It’s like Facebook meets Twitter meets Google! Well? What do you think? We’ll go 50/50 on this. You handle the programming, I handle the business side of things.”

    Ambient Social Is Dependent On Interests, Except Maybe Grindr…

    By Renee DiResta (Associate, O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures)

    There have been lots of interesting posts lately about how Highlight, Glancee and Sonar performed at SXSW. As a SXSW n00b, I installed all three.

    Unfortunately, the battery drain made continued use impossible, but I did notice that there was almost no overlap in the connections they suggested. This could be because smarter people only installed one of the three, but the lack of consistency got me thinking that the way the app parses your social and interest graphs is critical – and that no one really owns the interest graph.

    How To Increase Your Business Without Networking

    By Steph Auteri (Founder, Word Nerd Pro)

    I’m an introvert. Extended social interactions exhaust me and, after awhile, I hit a wall. There are so many things that terrify me about networking. Where I struggle in person, I shine on paper. Instead of small talk, I tweet. Instead of appearing on panels, I blog out my expert advice. Additional marketing? My portfolio speaks for itself. That and I give good email.

    Writing — it’s how I’ve managed to build up a business in which the work practically comes to me. So where can you let your writing do the talking?

    Woodstock For Geeks: SXSW Interactive

    Opportunities for SXSW and HIMSS.

    By Lisa Suennen (Co-Founder & Managing Partner, Psilos Group)

    At HIMSS a few weeks ago, I was feeling semi-hip among the healthcare uber-nerd crowd that worries about how to make big hospital and healthcare enterprises function with big data.

    Fast forward two weeks and I found myself, too uncool for school and entirely overdressed, among the techno glitterati at South By Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, TX. Not a suit to be found here at this gathering, which would blanche at the thought of being called a conference. SXSW is more of a happening. More than anything, sensory stimulation is the big difference between

    DressRush Pitch Deck Heard ’Round The Web Now Yours To Copy

    By Jennifer Van Grove (Writer, VentureBeat)

    To hell with PowerPoint — with a web-based slide deck you can achieve some eye popping effects and maybe even get the attention of dozens of potential investors.

    And don’t worry if you have no idea how to do this, because a startup called DressRush has open sourced its pitch deck, which became an overnight sensation last weekend.

    DressRush, a fresh-faced 500 Startups accelerator class member few have ever heard of, tweeted a link to its unconventional pitch deck on Friday and subsequently found itself

    The Impact of Twitter on RailsBridge (Learning Ruby on Rails)

    By Jennifer Lindner (Organizer, RailsBridge & Freelance Open Source Developer)

    Twitter not only helps facilitate organizing across the world, they invest in their local community by hosting RailsBridge workshops in their San Francisco office.

    We’re doing it. We’re teaching each other technology.

    Not how to use it: how to build it.

    We’re teaching and learning software development. How to use our command lines and be comfortable in the guts of our machines. How to contribute to the open source projects of others and

    By Amy Millman (Co-Founder & President, Springboard Enterprises)

    Last week, Mark Suster and Gina Bianchini called attention to some of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to women in tech: “Why Aren’t There More Female Entrepreneurs?” and “Is there a Female Mark Zuckerburg?”

    Whenever this happens, we know Women 2.0 will respond with a list of female founders to watch.

    This time, we thought we’d help by announcing 15 female founders of digital media and technology companies

    Notes from Bloomberg Empowered Entrepreneur Summit in NYC

    By Carol Massar (Co-Anchor of “Street Smart”, Bloomberg TV)

    It was fun to be a part of the Bloomberg Empowered Entrepreneur summit in New York City, an event in partnership with Women 2.0, among others.

    There were some great takeaways, including momentum to the idea that going public is not the endgame for young companies. We continue to hear that from different venues.

    Today, EDventure Holdings’ Esther Dyson was

    How To Get Tweeted By Dave McClure

    By Alicia Liu (Participant, Founder Labs)

    It all went down exactly a week before demo day.

    4:00pm: our team was getting ready to present our progress taking part in Founder Labs to Dave McClure, of 500 Startups, and John Malloy, of Blue Run Ventures. We were 4 weeks in, with only 1 more week to go before final demo day before an audience of investors and advisors, and we were scrambling.

    We had been exploring various ideas, everything from point-of-sale systems to social enterprise, and weren’t making much
