Yo all!

It's been a while, "solly"! I've had so many side projects going that I haven't had the time to continue my coding projects. *sniffles* I recently went to MIT 50K Global Startup Workshop, in Argentina! *awesomeness* The workshop was interesting and the people a blast!

I was asked by one of the cooler guys at MIT (hi Erik ^^) to send some interesting links. In the usual order, I'll share it by just posting here instead of making a proper web page! XD

These are articles and sites that have sticked to my mind; it's in no way a complete list. Tips are welcome, of course.
