LeadsCon, $4000 Given away in suite….March Madness time!
|I love this time of year as I can sit at my desk and watch college basketball while I work :)The unpredictability combined with raw emotion is a great thing to watch.
Here’s a look at my newest office setup…
Facebook wants to be LinkedIn?
|Today as I was messaging someone about a post on the super affiliate board I got this:
Pretty cool Facebook! It also made me notice I had a another box for messages called “other” that I never knew that before it was loaded with messages and solicitations 🙂
They are also said to be testing “extreme price point” of up to $100 a message to reach people like Mark Zuckerberg.
|Although I am not a supporter of pirated content, I do believe we are slowly giving away all our rights. In the past few weeks several cable providers put into effect a new system.
Following the demise of proposed anti-piracy laws SOPA and PIPA, five Internet service providers (specifically AT&T, Cablevision Systems, Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Verizon) worked with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and the Obama administration to create another set of protocols to stop digital pirates.
The result was the “Six Strikes” initiative, a program that allows Internet service providers (ISPs) to directly penalize users who downloaded pirated content. It is unclear how ISPs planned to punish the users; penalties could include anything from the following, according to the CCI’s official description of the Copyright Alert System:
Verizon recently announced it would throttle offenders’ Internet speeds without saying by how much. Time Warner Cable on November 15th said that it would restrict repeat offenders’ Internet browsing “by directing them to a landing page” without specifying “for how long users will be restricted to the landing page or what websites they will be able to reach, if any,” according to Torrent Freak. And AT&T, in a leaked internal training memo published by Torrent Freak, said it would block customer access to frequently visited websites “until they complete an online copyright course;” the company did not say, however, what the course will entail or which websites will be blocked. Crazy…
Yahoo CEO taking “from home”
|Having done both working from home and also running a large 35 person office in Las Vegas I can say both have their respective pros and cons. I understand why Yahoo! needed to do this, as it was reported many employees were just slacking off and working on side projects. It takes someone very disciplined to be effective working full time from home. If you work from home and you are not doing well or not as successful as you want to be get an office structure can be good!
