In related news, tech blog ReadWrite was purchased by Wearable World earlier this year, and partnerships were struck with manufacturer Jabil and Indiegogo to make an Internet of Things pipeline to startups ideas from conception to creation fast.

You can read more about it in this letter by CEO Redg Snodgrass titled “Here’s Why I Really Bought ReadWrite.”
