Did you miss out on one (or five) of Tech Cocktail’s posts from this 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 Cocktail editorial team.

This week’s Tech Cocktail Top Stories include two great infographics on the kinda weird habits of tech geniuses, as well as what you should and shouldn’t be doing to have a productive morning. We’ve also got some great pieces from two of our contributors: Gavin McCulley gives us a piece this week on what you shouldn’t say when pitching; Pankaj Sharma writes how and why to utilize Cloud computing as a service. Lastly, if you haven’t voted yet, take some time to vote for the all-star companies and individuals in your community – we’re looking at you, DC & Miami. And make sure to attend the Tech Cocktail & Refresh Miami Holiday Party this week!
