What you missed around the web and on AlleyWatch last week – March 17 – March 23


It was another busy week in Silicon Alley and beyond.


Twitter turned seven this week, but not sure that former NY Congressman Anthony Weiner is celebrating. Although, Twitter founder Jack Dorsey does hope to run for Mayor of NYC someday. Wonder what his position is on oversized soft drinks.  Kevin Lynch left his role as CTO at Adobe to join Apple.   We hear he was promised a lifetime supply of black shirts to be worn with blue jeans which sealed the deal. A joke about “dongles” led to the firing of two people neither of whom intended this to be the case causing a ripple over social media and the tech community.
