A really interesting look into the value of Facebook advertising and the estimated value of likes for your brand. It appears that the people who are paid to “like” brands are causing a real problem with engagement of actual fans. Draw you own conclusions here but it is a real eye opener if you are considering using Facebook advertising.
I found this beautifully made site which details the current legal status of Bitcoin in each country. I would not count on the accuracy of the service for making any investment decisions but its a decent starting point. Check it out here
I discovered this data brokerage service from GNIP which offers complete access to data sets from Twitter, Tumblr, Foresquare, WordPress and more, it also offers a partial service for companies like Facebook, Flickr, Instagram. I am not sure of the pricing model however it looks promising for large scale data mining. Check it out here
I really like this presentation from Reed Hastings who is the CEO of Netflix. The presentation is all about the company culture that he tries to build and its dramatically different from many companies I have seen in operation. Read it here
A really cool collage of films from 2012 created by “Gen Rocks”. It reminds me of one I posted earlier however the audio in this one was fantastically compiled. I would be recruiting these guys to create advertising for LOVEFiLM, Amazon Instant Video, NETFLIX, Now TV….
A very interesting presentation from Leah Buechley from MIT on paper based electronics using conductive ink. I believe this could be used in future packaging for smart notifications when products are running low.
