Twitter Link Roundup #261 – Jaw-Dropping Resources for Small Business, Startups, and Design!

Bored? Bored on a plane? Well 2.3 million people must be, because this video has been viewed that many times already! All you need is a ticket for the flight, a recording device, and some readily available sound-editing software. Oh, and some talent would be helpful, too. Like this producer has, in abundance!

Time now to prepare for landing. Please power down your electronic devices (except for the one you’re using to read this, of course) because it’s time for our weekly Roundup! Here are a slew of great links and articles we shared with you over the past week on our  crowdSPRING Twitter account (as well as my own Twitter account). We so like to talk about fonts, logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, economics and other interesting stuff! Enjoy!
