Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Forbes for January 7th, 2013 from Audible. This edition contains seven feature articles.

In the cover story, we'll tell you about, “30 Under 30: Meet the Innovators, Disruptors, and Brightest Stars of 2012.”

Also, “Tumblr: David Karp's $800 Million Art Project” – Where others looked at the twin revolutions of blogging and social networking and saw new tools for communication, Karp saw possibilities for making them radically easier and more intuitive.

Next, “Polaris Rides ATV and Snowmobile Success in Bid to Revive Indian Motorcycles” – Polaris is taking on Harley-Davidson in the lucrative motorcycle-as-a-lifestyle market.

Then, “Breaking: A Local Newspaper Chain That's Actually Making Good Money” – If you want to be in the news business and don’t have an online strategy, you ought to have your head examined–and your coffin sized. Unless you're 37-year-old hyper-local Texas publisher John Garrett.

We'll also tell you about, “12 Insider Tricks to Pay for College” – Poor, brilliant students get a free ride at Harvard or Princeton. Rich families don’t care about costs. Everyone else–and that would be about 90% of America–has a problem. Here are a dozen techniques to make college degrees more affordable.

Followed by, “Why the Treatment of Our Nation's Mentally Ill Is an American Disgrace” – The horror of what happened in Newtown, Connecticut is igniting discussion and debate about one of the most deplorable, if not barbaric, moves the U.S. has made in the past half-century: the shutting down of most of our institutions that treat people with severe mental illnesses.

And in our final story, “Meet the Startup Making Snap-Together Office Buildings, Schools and 7-Elevens” – You’ve heard of the big-box store. Get ready for the store in a big box. Prefab, long the province of double-wides and, more recently, eco-friendly designer homes, is going commercial.
