Shark Tank Entrepreneur CJ Launches Book Series on How He Builds Businesses: Do It With Help! January 10 2014

How did CJ go from idea to Shark Tank in 45 days? While he does many things himself (DIY) he strongly believes in Do It With Help (DIWH).  As a student of the Lean Startup Movement and an early reader of the 4 Hour Work Week (hint you have to work way more than 4 hours), CJ believes its really important to work with experts who are passionate about their craft to create great products.  He created the Eyebloc using 3D printing, so his first ebook is called Bring Your Idea to Life with 3D Printing.  His second is about utilizing 99 Designs to create great logo for your business titled: Using the Crowd to Design the Perfect Logo: How to Create an Affordable Logo You Love.  Do It With Help series is published through the same platform as Mark Cuban's ebooks.

In the Capital: Eyebloc Prevents Webcam Hackers From Spying on You October 03 2013

Founded in Washington DC, our nation's capital,  Eyebloc is a big fan of new media company Inthecapital.com.  We were thrilled this week when they covered Eyebloc and the role we can play in thwarting webcam hackers.

"The perv hacking her webcam was recently caught by the FBI. But that doesn't mean the problem is gone. Webcam hackers are out there, and chances are you have no idea if you've been a victim.
