Chicago Start-Up Profiles

Even though Paul Graham says if you aren't in Silicon Valley or Cambridge your odds of success are greatly decreased, the Chicago start-up scene seems to be blossoming quite nicely.

A recent article in the Chicago Sun-Times profiles 10 start-ups in the area, a few of which you may have even heard of. :)

I've been trying to contact someone at Inkling, but I'm getting no responses from the multiple emails. I'm involved in 2 inkling markets with close to 50% of my "money". Both of these markets should have closed by now (one on 4/27 and the other on 5/1), but when I click on close position, I get a message saying that "This stock has closed. Email has or will be sent to those who participated in this stock with the final results." I've tried contacting the market makers so that they could do what they need to do to close the markets, but I'm not getting any response.

These markets are called "Will the Dow Jones Industrials close at or above 12,750 on April 27?" and "What will Google stock sell for on May 1?".

Can someone please look at them and do what needs to be done so that I can continue trading?
