A Community for Innovators and Makers

By Tyler Denk

Every overly ambitious entrepreneur claims their idea is entirely novel and unlike anything anyone has ever seen before. Although it’s possible, the odds are against them. The truth is, someone somewhere has thought of that exact idea. Even more likely, there’s probably already several companies doing something similar…the key word there being similar.

Highlight Your Day with Line A Day

By Tyler Denk

Ben Taragin, a sophomore at the University of Maryland, came up for the concept of Line A Day when he took a gap year and studied abroad after graduating high school.

“I was experiencing something great and memorable, but I was not able to fully capture the moment or experiences by just writing it down in a notebook or ordinary journal”, Taragin said. “Within the first few months of my gap year I knew I wanted to create some type of journal-like app, but I had no idea how to create it due to my lack of knowledge in computer science.” Continue reading


Addressing the Issue of the Lack of Diversity in Tech

By Oluwatimilehin Dayo-kayode

This time last weekend, I was a participant at MLH Prime, the invite-only, spring finale hackathon of the Major League Hacking 2016 Spring season. While I was awed the whole time mostly due to the extremely cool venue-Bell Labs in NJ-and the sheer volume of skill and talent condensed in the building, I couldn’t help noticing just how little of my race I saw at the event.

In the fall of his junior year at the United States Naval Academy, Andy Bonn stared at the snowboard sitting in his dorm. Looking to sell it, he counted his limited options.

Craigslist, the Internet’s premier classified advertising site, wouldn’t work; students at the service academy aren’t allowed off campus during the week, and only upperclassmen are allowed cars. Continue reading


Wearing the Bay, and Wearing it Proudly

The Brooks Brothers lifted their famous sheep-suspended-in-a-ribbon logo from a 15th century knighthood.

Lacoste products are emblazoned with a crocodile after French tennis superstar Rene Lacoste wagered a crocodile-skin suitcase on a 1925 Davis Cup match.

Vineyard Vines’ logo is such because a carved wooden whale hung above the founding brothers’ childhood front door. Continue reading


Mobile Repairs On-The-Go

By Ben Harris

Recent studies estimate 2.6 billion people currently use smartphones, and that number is expected to jump to over six billion by 2020. We live in a world of shattered screens and batteries that turn off like clockwork at 10 percent.

A 2012 study revealed that iPhone repairs totaled roughly $6 billion in the phone’s first six years of existence. For those with a broken home button or in need of a new screen, chances are you’ve begrudgingly blocked off a few hours of your afternoon to visit your local Apple store and tell them your sob story.

inPin: Google Maps for Indoors

By Tyler Denk

In early April of 2015, Zachary Fishbein, a University of Maryland senior, had an idea for a mobile application. “When you are in a large building, it can be difficult to find someone in a crowded space. I wanted to create an app that would allow someone to share their exact location on an interactive floor map with friends via text or social media,” says Fishbein. Continue reading
