What you missed around the web and on AlleyWatch this week – March 10 – March 16


It was another busy week in Silicon Alley and beyond.


AlleyWatch and StartupOneStop successfully held their first joint event to a packed house at Orrick. The subject: the benefits of accelerator programs. Join us on Meetup and stay informed about the next event. Google announced it is shutting down Reader, which caused an outrage.  Facebook started rolling out a new timeline redesign, which people will start bitching and moaning about soon enough, as it is disseminated to the masses.  Twitter did something with line breaks; expect 140 characters over 140 lines or so. Mailbox created a huge buzz with its clever numbered invitation system. They also managed to get acquired by Dropbox. New York-based Bonobos raised another $30 million.  There was some sort of music/tech festival and conference in Texas. Mante Teo’s girlfriend was found and her photo is above. (Editor’s note: this didn’t really happen)
