Presionado por un multimedio, Superman deja el “Daily Planet”

Clark Kent, el hombre que detrás de sus anteojos esconde a Superman, ya no escribirá en el `Daily Planet`, el diario en el que lleva trabajando 40 años, para conservar su independencia como periodista.

Kent tomará la decisión de dejar el diario de Metrópolis después de que un gran conglomerado multimedia se apodere del control de la publicación e imponga una línea editorial que choca con sus más hondas convicciones.

Este cambio radical en la vida laboral de “El Hombre de Acero” tendrá lugar en el próximo número de la historieta.

Concretamente será en la décimo tercera entrega de la actual serie, lanzada hace poco más de un año, que escribe Scott Lobdell.

“Esto es lo que en realidad ocurre cuando un tipo de 27 años se sienta tras un escritorio y tiene que acatar las órdenes de una gran corporación que en realidad no tiene nada que ver con sus intereses”, dijo Lobdell en declaraciones al diario norteamericano USA Today, según despacho de Europa Press.

How Starbucks Plans to Capitalize on Free Wi-Fi

Starbucks stores nationwide now have free Wi-Fi, but details around the second piece to the coffee retailer’s digital strategy — the Starbucks Digital Network — have been slim. Here’s how Starbucks plans to cater to digital consumers and premium content providers through its Digital Network.

The Starbucks Digital Network (SDN) will be available to customers at company-operated stores beginning this fall. With SDN, Starbucks hopes to engineer an in-store, third-place experience like no other by offering exclusive and premium content from hand-picked content providers, including Apple, The New York Times and leading health publisher Rodale.

In an interview with Mashable (Mashable), Starbucks’ Vice President of Digital Ventures Adam Brotman revealed intimate details around the vision behind SDN and the various entities participating in the network.

XKCD-Inspired Cartoon Maps the World’s Social Networks [PIC]

This cartoon map shows the relative sizes of social networks based on real 2010 user data, and does so in a quirky and amusing way.

The quirky and amusing aspect is hardly surprising, because this map — titled the “2010 Social Networking Map” — was inspired by geeky-yet-popular web comic XKCD’s once sort-of-viral “Map of Online Communities.”

The original was made based on the whims of XKCD’s author, but marketing firm Flowtown took the idea and ran with it for this 2010 variation, sizing the various regions (each named after a social network) based on info collected or published by USA Today, Alexa, Compete and other sources.
