Startup School scrapes attendee tweets to create eBook

What I personally found so interesting about this item of digital media is that it was created by the crowd and assembled by attendees (or one particularly passionate attendee in particular).

Who are the 100 most influential business people in Australia? No one I’d rate.

Being the MVP

Footballers (or any sports people) have good form and bad form. Some are heroes and play to their optimum every single game. Some are inconsistent but sometimes brilliant.
