Rock Weekly: Reddit, the new disruptive diagnostic

November 12, 2012

This Veterans Day, the Rock Weekly is dedicated to all the men and women who have served our country.  Thank you.

Last week was our first full week of our fourth class of startups, and we are thrilled to have the teams moved into HQ and hard at work.  In case you missed it, you can read about the teams here.

And if you’re starting to get chilly, warm up with the news that we’re extending the deadline for our smart seating competition – anyone is eligible to win a free VIP pass to the LA Auto Show and $1500 travel stipend.  Submit your idea for a healthier car here.

Also, we were on TV!

Read on for this week’s news, including the latest victory in health care social media.
