Adam Hillman (previously) has taken recommendations to choose a balanced diet seriously. For each slice of Granny Smith apple, the New Jersey-based artist pairs a quartered cucumber, halved kiwi, and peeled plantain in a meticulous, color-coded arrangement.

How did the big consumer apps get their first 1,000 users? Considering every startup confronts this question at some point, I was surprised by how little has been written about it.
