Actress Huang "Junie" Hoang has lost her lawsuit. She sued IMDb for refusing her request to remove her correct age from her IMDb Pro account. A federal jury in Seattle ruled against her lawsuit.  

Hoang, now 41, originally filed suit in October 2011 against IMDb.com and its parent company Amazon.com for revealing her true date of birth, which she said opened her up to age discrimination. 

In March 18, 2013, all of her claims against Amazon and all but one of her claims against IMDb were dismissed, and on April 12, 2013, a jury found that IMDb was not liable for the remaining claim for breach of contract.

Guy Kawasaki - The Top Ten Mistakes of Entrepreneurs

Guy Kawasaki: The Top 10 Mistakes of Entrepreneurs

UPDATE:

We received alot of positive feedback to our posting of Guy Kawasaki's Spring, 2013 talk at the UC Berkeley Startup Competition (Bplan).

The former chief evangelist of Apple and co-founder of Garage Technology Ventures is such a good speaker that you wanted to hear more of him.  He was the keynote speaker at the first Donald W. Reynolds Governor's Cup Business Plan Competition at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond in 2005, and its timeless. 

You can click on the top blue headline to the full story and his video or click here. In his keynote, "The Art of the Start" he gives insight into the characteristics that make a successful start-up.

His first test is, "Are you making "meaning?"  He finds that the start-ups which have the highest chance of success are created by people who have a mission. He says they want to make "meaning" and not money. He feels the entrepreneurs who more often succeed are those who want to change the world. They want to make the world a better place, to improve the quality of life, to right a wrong, to fix something and change it to make it better, or they want to prevent the end of something good. 

He urged his audience of students to be "Prototypers" not typists. He was referring to entrepreneurs who create things, or develop something, versus those who merely write a business plan with a mission statement. 

Kawasaki says, "Get going." "As an entrepreneur - Think different. Don't look at the existing status quo. Don't look at what is successful now, except to say how can I leap frog that? How can I change the world. How can I shift paradise? How do I get to the next curve? How can I create the next curve?"

Second, "You should polarize people. Create products and services that you love." 

Third, "Find a few soul mates. There is this myth about the solo entrepreneur - that is a vastly overrated...
