This week I met up with Laura Fitton and Kabir Hemrajani for Rule 53. Laura is absolutely one of my favorite people to run into in the Boston startup scene. She is the founder of an awesome startup called oneforty, which has been making serious moves in the last few months. The oneforty project provides users with categorized lists of Twitter applications giving them access to the best tools available on Twitter.
You may also recognize Laura as @Pistachio on Twitter. Her "missionary zeal" for Twitter quickly made her one of the most credible faces on the twitter scene. She co-wrote Twitter for Dummies and founded Pistachio Consulting, all while being a mom. It's no surprise that she has investors interested!
Larua's Rule of Thumb: "Hope is your only hope and fear is your only fear...don't make decisions out of fear!"

Kabir Hemrajani's appearance as a guest on Rule 53 makes him the first Dart community member to achieve a "quadfecta" (PH featured company, PH Panelist, Capitalize & Rule 53) as the bearded man so eloquently labeled it. Kabir is the founder of RiotVine, the social event guide which heavily relies on Twitter. If Dart were a dating site this would be a match made in heaven! That is not the case, but the conversation was a lot of fun and reveals some great information. Kabir even gets the Laura Fitton bump of approval! Listen for a whole lot more...
