Mashable is generally acknowledged as the alpha wolf of tech news sites, yet itâ€™s a relatively unassuming site. It certainly doesnâ€™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 rÃ©sumÃ© 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. Weâ€™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 â€“ you may, in fact, think Disney is all there is â€“ 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? â€“ Jessica Bryce Young
