FRIDAY TIDBITS: Guess the news source, #startupproblems, startup guy fashion

This is pure genius.


Followers of startup news (and yes, we assume that is you), this is one to have some fun with. The idea is simple: A headline about startups is displayed and you have to guess the news source: TechCrunch, Hacker News, Product Hunt or The Onion. It’s simply brilliant. You have to try and get as many correct answers in a “streak” after which you can tweet out your score. Who’s game?





The Startup Guy


Banana Republic has put together a ‘Startup Guy’ look, and there’s not a black hoodie in sight. ‘The Startup Guy’ outfit, according to our friend in the republic of bananas, wears a blue-collared short, with khaki pants, some leather bracelets (no obvious wearable tech), says no to socks, rolls his pants and prefers suede shoes.




We’re not sure what makes this look inherently “startup”, but perhaps this is more aspirational rather than actual fashion.
