CEOs to Follow on Twitter, What Tweaks VCs, What Entrepreneurs Should Copy, Making Cleantech Pay, & Other Recent Boston Blog Posts to Peruse

With a lot of people out of town or chillin’ the past few weeks, I thought it might be a good time to highlight some interesting recent blog posts you might have missed from various local entrepreneurs, venture investors, and others.
The topics range from what you shouldn’t do as a startup to what you should do, what it takes to commercialize products, and the best Boston CEOs to follow on Twitter. Let’s start there.
David Laubner, who writes the 93 South blog, has tracked down (or started following, I guess) some interesting CEO tweeters, from folks you have likely heard of, like Robin Chase (co-founder of Zip Car) and Jeremy Allaire, and those you likely haven’t. One in this category for me is former Yahoo exec Jack Barette, aka healthyjack, CEO of WEGO Health. His motto: “I believe health is social media’s higher calling.” I think that means riding the exercise bike and tweeting at the same time. I can do that.
