We're starting a new series here at the ZURBlog: the week-in-review post. Hey, we realize that time is money — especially for our readers. So we've decided to compile our can't-miss blog posts from the previous week into a single post that will sum up the topics we covered and discussed while setting the stage for the content to come.

We're publishing the week in review on Wednesday today but look out for it every Monday from here on out.

This past week, we covered a variety of entrepreneurial topics, how content plays a role in design and had a look at some awesome CSS photo filters (which are yet to come!).

Without further ado, here are the posts you should check out from last week!

We control the content. Ryan wrote a post last week on 'The Writerly Design of Content,' which covered the importance of consistency in content styling. The importance of content in design cannot be underestimated.

The true entrepreneurial spirit. Being an entrepreneur is so much more than fame and fortune. In this post, Ryan examined three qualities of the entrepreneurial spirit as seen through the story of a determined child.

Success, defined. Startups of all types define success differently, so how do entrepreneurs define success for themselves and their companies? I examined this question with four influencers. Their answers will get you thinking about what success really means.

As one reader tweeted, you've got Instagram in your web kit. Anthony shared some awesome CSS photo filters with us. No Photoshop or jQuery plugins needed.

Did you miss our ZURBsoapbox with Robert Scoble? Hear more about these 'freaky' apps and how they actually push forward entrepreneurship as we know it.

And Stack Overflow co-founder Jeff Atwood will get on his soapbox on May 11, sharing with us the hurdles he had to overcome as he built the entire Stack Exchange Network from the bottom up. Spots are filling up fast so make sure to RSVP today!



Get a job, nerd!
