Mashery Developer Blog: CoderFaire brings out Nashville's up and coming tech talent

Three-quarters of the world population now has access to a mobile phone.

Some great friends of ours at Musea, an organization that is changing the world through photography, have launched an IndieGoGo Campaign to generate funds for development of their Musea store and to launch the inaugural Musea Gathering.
