New Work City.

HIP LIKE HP. New Work City just signed its newest sponsor: HP. “This is really great for us, as their support will play a huge part in helping us make ongoing improvements to the space and community. To consummate the relationship, we’re hosting an event on December 5th. I’ll have more details next week. In the meantime, come play with some new gadgets and help us help HP make printing suck less!

FITOCRACY PUSH. “Fitness is something that people tend to take very seriously so it should be no surprise that when they embark on the quest to better bodies, they want their chosen tools to be the best they can be. Since the beginning, one of the most often requested features for Fitocracy has been a way to visualize your workout progress over time. And so it is with incredible excitement that we announce the official release of Graphs on Fitocracy.”THE BIGGEST SALE IN INTERNET HISTORY. This is how you know Fab.com has made it. “Get Dealy has launched as ‘Fab.com for Digital Goods.’ We’re really excited about launching our new platform, a daily flash sales site for digital goods, such as software, resources for designers and developers, courses and tutorials.”

HATCHED. “Just wanted to give you the heads up that Hatch is officially out their private beta as of this past Tuesday, designed by Hard Candy Shell to make organizing activity plans fun, easy and seamless.

NOW EMERGING FROM BETA. “EZBZ is a New York-based startup that goes beyond  reviews by connecting area consumers with top-rated local business products and services.  EZBZ is built on a real-time open bidding platform driven by text message queries to compensate for the relatively poor Web infrastructure that typical local small businesses have, providing a mobile functionality that’s also convenient for consumers.”

HIRINGS. Signpost needs a chief of staff. “As the ‘Chief of Staff’ you’ll be doing a combination of accounting, HR, stocking the fridge, and anything else we need help on.” Wildfire Interactive seeks a senior account executive and Thrillist needs a web apps developer (work with the talented Michael Smith!) while meanwhile Rent the Runway is hiring for a software engineer, Linux engineer. SNAP Interactive needs a MySQL dev.

HEALTH TECH. Startup Health partners with New York eHealth Collaborative, “a public-private partnership that serves as a focal point for health care stakeholders to build consensus on state health IT policy priorities. We established the StartUp Health Pavilion at the NYeC Digital Health Conference to showcase some of the leading early stage health and wellness companies in the greater NY area at the event.  We have one spot left so if you are interested in this great opportunity to show off your offering to more than 500 HIT stakeholders and decision makers across the region, be sure to reach out to us!”
