Did you miss out on one (or five) of Tech.Co’s posts from the last week? It’s okay. We want to let you know that we forgive you; we totally get it. You’re a busy person, with a lot of things on your mind and equally as many things to do. You had people to meet, places to be, and tacos to eat. No worries, though, because we’ve curated this week’s top 10(ish) posts as determined by the Tech.Co editorial team in the Tech.Co Top Stories of the week.

We published a Guide for the Healthy Entrepreneur – you should get yourself a copy here!

This week’s top story is on Alyssa Dumond, who left her job as the director of operations at a Portland startup after being unfairly treated as a woman. While she found herself starting a new business, she encountered the same kind of disrespect from potential male clients. While this all sounds depressing, it does end on a good note (so read it). Google Fiber also made a major expansion announcement this week – check out which cities it plans to expand. We’ve also got a lot of great pieces from our contributors – from a list of iOS apps you can’t get on Android, to seven distractions you need to avoid to become more productive.
