One of the features of this blog that I've been meaning to explain is in the upper right-hand corner there: "3 Up, 3 Down." 

Essentially, the idea is to spotlight three companies on the upswing, and three that have, uh, had better days. It's not intended to be mean-spirited, but rather to capture some of the travails of building great companies in New England's innovation economy.

As with everything on this blog, I'm open to your suggestions for 3 Up, 3 Down, which I update sporadically. Just send a suggestion (ideally, with a link to a story or blog item) using the box in the right-hand column that says "Send an e-mail to Scott," or just click on my name where it says "About the blogger."
