Lucky 13: Xconomy Boston’s Top Stories of 2010 (So Far)

7/23/10Follow @gthuang

Ever feel like you can’t catch up to the endless stream of news and information bombarding you in the tech-business world? Well, today we’re going to get caught up, at least a little bit.

Having just landed back in Boston this week, I’ve been getting up to speed on all of our stories and sources here—and I’ve been thinking about ways to expand our coverage while focusing on what we do best. Along the way I’ve made a list of my 13 favorite stories of 2010 so far (see below). If you haven’t read them yet, please do.

Why am I doing this? Because I’m the new editor of Xconomy Boston and I feel like it, that’s why. But seriously, I want to highlight the quality of work we’re doing here, and I want to make sure our best stories keep getting read, even if they didn’t pass through the Twitter stream two seconds ago. And no, none of the following stories were written by me.

So here’s a rundown of some of the best stuff we’ve done in Boston this year, in reverse chronological order. They span startups and well-established companies; up-and-coming business leaders as well as household names; news, features, and Q&As; healthcare, software, and hardware—and, of course, the iPad.
