Madison offers an amazing array of outdoor recreation activities, so there is something for everyone, from softball to running to biking and boating on the lake. If you are looking for a few places that capture the culture of Madison, Josh recommends checking out Union Terrace, the Old Fashioned, and the Weary Traveler.

Streaming, social networking and how it relates to live entertainment Max Fergus And Elijah Isenberger are two entrepreneurs in Madison who are building a start-up that will revolutionize how musicians and fans connect and share content. Live Undiscovered Music, or LÜM, is a music discovery and streaming platform that focuses on giving power to up and coming artists and dedicated music lovers so that more musicians can earn a livable income through their passion for music, and fans can discover that music in a way that does not currently exist. The LÜM platform is based on social networking, which allows the application to increase user to user and user to artist engagement unlike any other music or social media platform. By rethinking the interaction between social media and streaming, they hope that LÜM will eventually become a digital “talent pool” for live entertainment around the world.
