Twitter Link Roundup #254 – Sweet, Sweet resources for Small Business, Startups, and Design! Mike | January 30th, 2015

Computer viruses are a huge threat to business large and small – one small infection can lead to a widening crack in the cyber-door to our businesses. Same goes for viruses of the medical kind and last week we saw what happens when large numbers of people choose to forego their children’s vaccinations. Measles, anyone? Who better than Penn and Teller to explain to us why it is so important to get your kid Immunized!

OK then. Now that you understand just how critical immunization is, let’s move on to our weekly roundup! Great links and articles we shared with you over the past week on our  crowdSPRING Twitter account (as well as my own Twitter account). We do like to talk about logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, economics and other interesting stuff! Enjoy!
