It's good news that theThings.biz is focusing on getting young people started in careers through transferable skills and attitude. Focusing on recession grads, Veterans transitioning into civilian careers, and people with non-traditional backgrounds, theThings.biz provides searchable professional profiles built around candidates' transferable skills and leadership qualities, and an entry-level job search engine that matches people with companies looking for driven, long-term hires. The job board space is pretty crowded out there, but this looks like a good niche.
For the young folks just starting out: "It's not about what you've done, it's about what you'll do!"

Gradeable makes grading faster with a web and mobile platform that enables teachers to give students test results before they even leave the classroom. That lets teachers spend more time teaching and less time grading.
My camera started misbehaving, so I didn't get photos of all the products this time, but that doesn't mean the event was any less exciting than usual :-) Some of the ones I didn't photograph but did check out at their tables were: ADM-Live, Coastal Dog Apparel, and FITRAX.
ADM-Live addresses a problem I've been encountering more and more frequently. Why can't I easily submit a PDF form on line? ADM-Live makes it possible to enter data, e-sign, and submit any PDF form on line.
Coastal Dog Apparel is not beach wear for dogs (I was not the only person to make that joke), it's clever, comfortable beach wear for guys. Those who don't have loads of brothers or other men in their lives may not be aware of an uncomfortable phenomenon that men often experience: chafing from spending time in the surf and on the beach in conventional bathing trunks. Coastal Dog Apparel designed a unique, comfortable anti-chafing bathing suit to solve that problem. It's basically a traditional swim trunk with a soft seamless inner short that keeps out the sand.
FITRAX table was getting a lot of attention and they ended up winning the first prize in the American Airlines Business Extra Points voting. FITRAX uses sensors, mobile, and cloud technology to integrate fitness facilities into the overall health care conversation by syncing health and fitness data among personal trainers/coach, physicians and healthcare providers.
And for the closing Experts Looking Expert shot, who better than the folks who are expert at making Mass Innovation Nights happen?!?!
