Free 2 Days of Learning Code

If you're like me, you may have known some code in the past or you've always wanted to at least get a cursory understanding of it.

FounderDating - find a cofounder for your next startup

Came across this today via a Wall Street Journal article.  I don't have a current use for it but thought it could be useful for those out there looking for partners in a startup they'd like to start or those who'd like to lend their experience and expertise in helping someone else startup a company as a cofounder.
