Twitter Link Roundup #282 – Profoundly Great Resources for Small Business, Startups, and Design!


Our friends at the New York Times get to do stuff that, frankly, makes me jealous. For instance, the other night they got to go for a ride on the brand new carousel at Battery Park, in lower Manhattan. The $16 million dollar version of an old-school treat opens this week. The architects Claire Weisz and Mark Yoes have designed a magical undersea journey – an incredible ride for the senses.

My head is spinning and I can’t wait to ride the SeaGlass Carousel! But, wait I must, because it’s time now for our latest set of links and articles that we shared with you over the past week on our  crowdSPRING Twitter account (as well as my own Twitter account)! We just love sharing articles about fonts, logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, economics and other interesting stuff! Enjoy!
