Why Pinterest?

 

One word – traffic. Shareaholic posted a study of referral traffic in January 2012 from more than 200,000 publishers with a combined total of over 260 million unique monthly visitors. The top five social referrers were Facebook, StumbleUpon, Google, Twitter, and Pinterest. Note that Google in this reference is only for referral traffic from products, not organic search or AdWords. This means that Pinterest beat YouTube, Reddit, Google+, LinkedIn, and Myspace combined for referral traffic.

We embrace creativity all around us. Ideas can come from anyone, not just a ‘Creative’ department. We open-source ideas internally, and we also collaborate with many content creators, artists, developers, brands, agencies, and people who come to us with wonderful ideas. They stretch and inspire us. Collaboration is essential to problem-solving in our increasingly complex world.

 

That is why we believe so strongly in the power of open technologies and platforms. They enable anyone, anywhere, to apply their unique skills, perspectives, and passions to the creation of new products and features on top of our platforms.

“It’s too easy to say ‘no’ all the time. It’s too easy to be cautious. Pushing the boundaries of creativity means saying ‘yes,’ taking risks, trying new things, learning, and being surprised. So we don’t just open-source ideas at Google, we open-source our brand.”

How to Measure Your Way to Startup Success


Via Scoop.ithuman being in – perfección

Every business is based on a set of assumptions. If you were going to open a bagel shop you’re initial set of assumptions might be:

You’ve discovered a great bagel recipe that tastes great and is affordable to mass produce.
The location you’ve chosen is convenient enough for a sizable target market.
You have a marketing campaign that can dislodge people from their current habits that include stopping at McDonalds, making their own breakfast, etc.
Once someone has tried your bagels, they have a yearning to come back… and tell their friends to stop by.
Customers are then going to stop by at least once a week for the next year and buy at least $5.00 worth of food each visit. 🙂
There isn’t much difference between these assumptions and those generated by someone creating an online business. What’s good for you is that online businesses are easier to measure.

BBC Mundo – Noticias – Reino Unido quiere más poder sobre internet


Via Scoop.ithuman being in – perfección

El gobierno de Reino Unido busca aprobar pronto una ley que le permitirá acceder a los datos de internet y llamadas telefónicas de cualquier ciudadano a tiempo real y sin necesidad de una orden del juez.

Anuncio Real
La iniciativa, que se espera sea anunciada por la propia Reina Isabel II de Inglaterra en su discurso de mayo (el único que no escribe ella misma sino que se gesta en las entrañas de Downing Street), ha dividido a la misma ala conservadora del gobierno.
“Es una innecesaria extensión de la habilidad del estado para fisgonear en la vida de la gente”, dijo el Tory David Davis a la prensa.
No obstante, desde el gobierno se considera un paso “clave” para lidiar con la criminalidad y el terrorismo.
Lo paradójico es que fueron los conserv

The Facebook-related firings have begun: A teacher’s aide in Michigan was let go from her job after a school administrator demanded that she turn over her Facebook password and she refused. The aide, Kimberly Hester, is preparing for a legal showdown with the school system.

Does RIM’s Enterprise Plan Herald More Shrinking?


Via Scoop.ithuman being in – perfección

RIM’s plan to emphasize the enterprise customer base swiftly raised questions about how RIM can grow. If anything, emphasizing enterprise seemed like a prescription for shrinking more.

RIM still hopes a new line of phones based on a completely new operating system, BlackBerry 10, will again make the BlackBerry a desirable corporate tool. But before people decide if they want to take those phones to the office every day, RIM will have to persuade buyers that the BlackBerry 10 phones are as desirable as an iPhone or Android based phone in consumer terms. That may be a difficult task for a company with plans to again focus on work rather than play.

James Cameron corrigió el cielo estrellado en Titanic 3D gracias a Neil deGrasse


Via Scoop.ithuman being in – perfección

Neil deGrasse Tyson me envió un correo electrónico bastante sarcástico explicándome que en esa época del año y en esa posición en el Atlántico en 1912, cuando Rose está tumbada sobre una tabla de madera flotante y mira hacia las estrellas, ese no era el cielo que ella habría visto.

Y con mi reputación de perfeccionista, debería haberlo sabido y debería haber puesto ahí la bóveda de estrellas correcta.

Así que dije “Muy bien, envíame el cielo correcto para esa época y lo pondré en la película”.

Are Female Board Members Breaking the Banks?


Via Scoop.ithuman being in – perfección

The conventional wisdom — not to mention a good deal of research — suggests that women are less inclined than men to take big risks with money. That’s why a new discussion paper prepared by three economists for the German Bundesbank is generating so much, well, discussion. Adding women to the highly male-dominated boards of directors in the banking industry hasn’t led to more fiscal prudence, the researchers argue, but less.

Innovation Excellence | Behind Closed Doors


Via Scoop.ithuman being in – perfección

It may be time to retire the term “mobile media” and replace it with “personal media.” Because what is happening behind closed doors in homes across American is not so much mobile as, well, personal.

 

That’s coupled with an analysis that shows this year more video will be watched online than from a physical source. Meaning Netflix, HuluPlus and others will be reaching a tipping point this year that will see the gradual assignment of DVD and Blu-Ray to the dustbin of technology history. The analysis does not specify on what all this online video is being watched, but I think there’s an excellent chance it’s on mobile media and that it is being watched at home. (TV, meet dustbin). I can’t remember the last time I watched an HBO episode on my TV since HBOGO came on the scene, which lets me watch what, where and when I want on any device.

Coolest jobs in tech: hackers for hire


Via Scoop.ithuman being in – perfección

Some hackers spend years in prison for their deeds, but a lucky few are showered with cash and prestige for piercing the digital fortresses erected by banks and Fortune 1000 companies.A burly 31-year-old with glasses and pork-chop sideburns, Finisterre has spent more than a decade applying his combination of street smarts and technical skills to pierce digital fortresses. For instance, he once accessed the work account of an engineer for a large utility company. Finisterre used a pilfered profile from Hotjewishgirls.com to trick the engineer into thinking he was interacting with a flirtatious 26-year-old woman, until the engineer finally coughed up enough personal information to make an attack on his corporate account successful.
