Taking a look at BostInno

This Wednesday we will have two guest speakers from BostInno, a startup website that covers local news, technology and education in Boston. Our speakers will be Chase Garbarino, the co-founder and chief executive, and Lauren Landry, BostInno’s education reporter.

I’ll be demonstrating BostInno for a few minutes in class today. I want you to spend some time with it yourself before class on Wednesday so that you’ll have some good questions for Garbarino and Landry. As with most of our guest speakers, I’ll expect you to write a post about their talk. They will also be talking about how you can contribute content.

There’s a Wikipedia article about BostInno that you may find useful. Also, Garbarino’s commentary for the Huffington Post titled “Why I’m an Entrepreneur” is worth a read.
