Twitter Link Roundup #225 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Ross | May 30th, 2014

Every day on the crowdSPRING Twitter account and on my own Twitter account, I post links to posts or videos I enjoyed reading or viewing. These posts and videos are about logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, and more! Here are some of the links that I’ve liked and shared this past week!

The video above is a TED talk by Hugh Herr. Herr is building the next generation bionic limbs and robotic prosthetics. He was inspired by a personal tragedy – he lost both legs in a climbing accident 30 years ago. It’s a terrific talk and well worth the time to watch.
