Doing Business with Friends: Friends of the Web Makes its Mark on Baltimore

Friends of the Web is a company whose name describes it well -- four best friends taking on web design and product development. Instead of carving out what would certainly be a difficult path in the tech world of Silicon Valley, Friends operates out of a rowhouse in Fells Point, where the 20-somethings work, eat, and sleep. A recipe for disaster? Try a formula for success.

Andrew Hazlett Seeks the Glue to Hold Baltimore's Tech Community Together

It is, perhaps, an "only in Baltimore" story. One entrepreneur writes a blog post with an idea to create an "Innovation Community Manager" for Baltimore. A few months later, Andrew Hazlett has the job. Here, Bmore Media's Renee Libby Beck tracks Hazlett down to find out more about how he got here and what he's up to.

Wellness 2.0: Online Communities In the Face of Chronic Illness

New Media has always been only as important as its users make it. Certainly there's marginal value in a Twitter post about a great new restaurant or a Facebook pic of a birthday party. Such things, however, do little to add lasting value. In Baltimore and elsewhere there are people facing serious health troubles and finding in blogs, Facebook, and other online outlets a chance to build communities that wouldn't have been possible a decade ago. Here, Bmore Media's Katharine Schildt tracks down some of their stories.

The Benefits of Bootstrapping: Kwame Kuadey Talks GiftCardRescue

Baltileaks: New Media Targets Old Ways

By now you've likely heard of Baltileaks, the anonymous group seeking to harness new media as a means of bringing enhanced transparency and accountability to city government. They've pulled an impressive feat in generating a great deal of discussion and coverage in a very short amount of time. Whether it's a disruptive force for good or simply a blip on the radar, however, is another issue entirely.

A solution to a common problem turns covering up into big biz for M-Edge Accessories

How many of us have thought of a way to improve a device or tool we use? Problem is most of us let the idea slip away and then kick ourselves when we see a finished product that's eerily similar to our idea on store shelves. Patrick Mish of M-Edge Accessories took the road less traveled. And now he, his wife, and a small group of their friends are covering iPads, Nooks, and Kindles.

What cyber means in Baltimore

Over the past decade, "cyber" has become a catch-all term stuck in front of anything remotely related to IT or Internet technologies. It's come to mean everything but define nothing. That got us wondering what "cyber" really means in the Greater Baltimore Area. Here's what we found out.

It's a classic Baltimore tale of success. Joe Weaver decided to give up his day job with Price Waterhouse and follow his vison to create a company where technology and design would meet. His gamble paid off. Now his company, Global Design Interactive, has become a well-respected interactive marketing and communications firm.
