REBEKAH MONSON: Getting down to business. Ready to make the leap into entrepreneurship? Here's a lot of stuff I wish I'd known before I cofounded a startup, and why more designers like you should get into business.

YING WU: Mobile news design in China. Half of Chinese use smart phones to consume news.That is twice the entire US population. China has become the biggest mobile news production and consumption country in the world.
