Residents create Google map to track coyote sightings - Bungalower

Sat, 12/20/2014 - 08:26 -- rprice

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission does not track/count coyotes in the state so residents have taken it upon themselves to do so. Right now on the map, there are 15 sightings of coyotes and 15 missing or dead pets. Coyotes can and do prey on domestic cats and small dogs.

Waiting Room And OR Tech Aimed At Reducing Patient Frustrations, Surgical Error | Fast Company | Business + Innovation

Thu, 03/06/2014 - 11:09 -- rprice

And with retirement communities ringing the city, there’s no shortage of demand for healthcare--and healthcare innovation. Apple and Google recently acquired startups from the region, and perhaps someday central Florida will become known as a hub of innovation that Ben would like it to be, with The Garage one of its important spokes.

TheDailyCity.com: Orlando.io Tech and Startup Community Directory

Mon, 02/24/2014 - 13:33 -- rprice

Orlando now has a tech and startup community directory: Orlando.io. Created by Orrett Davis, the directory lets users add their own names, a brief bio, photo and list of skills. As of this writing there were 39 members, but with the February 18th screening of the documentary Orlando Rising and the coming of the SXSW-like Orlando Interactive Digital Conference in 2015, one can only assume this list will grow.
