My daily readings 04/19/2011

    • 我是一个喜欢应用的人,所以今天我带领各位朋友来回忆一下。当我拿到平板,三天之后我的生活发生什么变化。第三天上班的时候是抱着iPad,开始从凌晨一点到早晨七点的邮件,同时回了三个邮件,下午出差去上海,不管是从机场路上等飞机过程中还是在飞机上拿着iPad工作,到了宾馆之后,洗澡的时候套着塑料袋,边冲澡边看邮件。睡着的时候是抱着iPad睡着的,这就是平板电脑给我带来的变化。

        当我从上海回来之后,有一天早会上我就想,我有了平板之后一下子把所有零碎的时间都用来工作了,如果我的高管也能像我这样很好,是不是给我的高管也配一个平板,但是想想又觉得残酷。所以早会上小心翼翼的说跟各位高管说,我觉得用iPad不错,我想给大家配上这设备,不知道大家喜不喜欢。大家都很高兴,还是水货,结果高管全都傻呵呵的鼓掌欢迎。

    • 出生于西雅图的艾伦还谈起了一件有趣的往事,他在1972年申请了俄勒冈州波特兰的里德学院且被录取,但由于父母承担不起高昂的学费,艾伦没有进入里德学院深造,而是选择了华盛顿州立大学,并在两年后缀学来到波士顿,他儿时的伙伴盖茨正在那里上大学。苹果创始人史蒂夫·乔布斯(Steve Jobs)在1972年进入里德学院学习,所以,有人不禁会想,如果乔布斯和艾伦在那里相遇会发生什么事情?
  • But many times, we can’t find a clearly vision, then what to do?

    • Clearly, even after receiving an education at a top tier university, a large number of students are struggling to figure out what they want to do with their lives. And, of course, the gloomy economic environment isn’t making life easier. They are finding, as generations before them have, that life after college is filled with zillions of questions without a right answer.
    • While in school, students live a life that is cut up into quarters or semesters with a nice long summer break. They are given specific assignments and receive a grade at the end of each one. They know if they have done well or not. But, life beyond college is quite different. It is the ultimate open-book exam.
    •   佩奇鼓励他的团队大胆想象。他在2009年的谷歌员工峰会上表示,通过处理一些“能够真正改变世界”的想法,你可以吸引到极其聪明的人,并获得很有价值的经验,即使这并非你的最初目的。他说,谷歌团队在研究人工智能时意外地开发出了精准广告系统,而现在,这一系统为谷歌贡献了近一半的收入。他还补充道: “这是很好的副作用。”
    • 佩奇对密歇根大学的毕业生说,谷歌搜索引擎的创意源于他的一个梦想:他当时想把整个互联网下载到自己的电脑中,还要保持所有的链接。“当别人都没疯到这种程度时,你面临的竞争就很小。”他说。

    • According to Statcounter, StumbleUpon is now responsible for 43% of all major social media site (StumbleUpon, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, YouTube, Myspace and Digg) traffic on the 15 billion pageviews that the analytics service tracks. Facebook is at 38%.

      When a company with 13 million users is outpacing one with 500 million on one specific metric,  additional context is needed to understand exactly what is going on.

    • The site has served up over 700 million “Stumbles” (referral pageviews to other websites) in December 2010 compared to 400 million Stumbles in December of 2009, according to internal analytics.
    • Camp says that the service has been growing at 20% month over month for the last couple of months, partially because it introduced StumbleUpon for the iPhone and Android in August and an iPad app in April. Mobile engagement, which represents 5% of all Stumbles, is growing at 40%. Web-only Stumbling, as opposed to the vast oeuvre of browser plugins and toolbars, is growing at a 25% rate. The site also gains around 500-600K new registered users monthly on average and boasts a 40% daily active user rate.
    • “Facebook is by design trying to keep you on Facebook, but with us every time you click we’re sending referrals to other sites,” he continues, “like Google our goal is to take you to a new site.”
    • StumbleUpon is also breaking even according to Camp, and at around 65 employees that means revenue is in the ballbark of 10 million annually (When asked if this guess was accurate, Leibowitz told me “You’re not bad at math.” This is not true.). In any case, beating Facebook at anything is a hell of a way to start 2011 strong. Congrats guys.
