Mashable is generally acknowledged as the alpha wolf of tech news sites, yet it’s a relatively unassuming site. It certainly doesn’t look like the powerhouse of web/mobile/business/technology information and reporting that it is, but looks deceive: If you could manage to keep one eye on its news feed and the other using what you learn on your résumé and/or stock portfolio, it would probably pay off handsomely. Mashcon is their annual meetup, this year with speakers from Soundcloud, Storify, Bit.ly, IDEO and other influential digital businesses. We’ll leave them to it insofar as panels and networking events go, with one piece of advice: Conventions are all about the off-hours activities. You may think Orlando is hopeless in this regard – you may, in fact, think Disney is all there is – but Orlando Weekly is here to help. Check out Selections, The Week and BITE (our annual dining guide, inserted in this issue) for stuff to do; try out a few Orlando Weekly Restaurant Week menus; and to all the confused SF-ers who will be wandering around looking for a late-night burrito, may I suggest a field trip to Tako Cheena? – Jessica Bryce Young
