Roughly 85,000 people will descend on Moscone Center this week for Salesforce.com's annual conference, which might make it San Francisco's largest annual tech convention - and will definitely make it a tough area to dine.Estimated attendance for Dreamforce, which kicks off Tuesday, is up 85 percent from last year. That could prove a tough act to follow for Oracle OpenWorld, generally the city's most popular tech event each year. In 2011, the two business software conferences ran neck and neck in terms of attendees, with OpenWorld drawing about 45,000 people. Salesforce Chief Executive Officer Marc Benioff cut his teeth at Oracle, as a protege

It's a Saturday morning in 2022, and you're trying to decide what to wear to the dinner party you're throwing that evening. All the clothes hanging in your closet are "smart"—that is, they can tell you when you last wore them, what else you wore them with, and where and when they were last cleaned.

This is a guest post written by Josh James, who founded Omniture (now a part of Adobe). He currently runs Domo, a data startup.
These findings are just crazy to me on so many levels. More than half the U.S. population has eagerly embraced sites like Facebook and more than a third are using Twitter, yet only 7.6% of Fortune 500 CEOs
As a co-founder of RockThePost, the leading crowdfunding platform for entrepreneurs, I naturally advocate for startups to get funding via crowdfunding, as it provides several additional benefits that can prove very useful early on.On the flip side, other options to obtain funding include personally funding your venture, reaching out to friends and family, angel investors, and of course, the world of venture capital.

Cellphones have already muscled onto watches’ turf as a time-telling tool. Now, some of the biggest technology companies are eyeing your wrist, too.
Companies like Apple, Nike and Sony, along with dozens of start-ups, hope to strap a device on your wrist.

A lot is at stake when a company changes its logo, and Microsoft changed it a number of times in its early years.
Microsoft, which has used its solid, boldfaced, italicized logo since 1987, is expected to unveil its new, more colorful logo Thursday at the Boston opening of the 23rd Microsoft store. It will also appear Thursday at the Seattle and Bellevue Microsoft stores, as well as on the microsoft.com home page.
