Twitter Link Roundup #286 – Ideas for Small Business, Startups, and Designers! Mike | September 11th, 2015

A bicycle-riding robot? What other wonders could the world yet hold? Why if we can get a small machine to balance and adjust its center of gravity like this little fella, how long can it be until those flying cars finally go on the market? Well, I’m not holding my breath, but it does give me some hope that technology may save us after all. Or at least give us some modest entertainment.

So stretch your legs and take a deep breath! Because it’s time for the set of links and articles that we shared with you over the past week on our  crowdSPRING Twitter account (as well as my own Twitter account)! We do love sharing articles about fonts, logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, economics and other interesting stuff! Enjoy!
