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

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.

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
