This just happened and I made the same face. ๐Ÿ˜‚ you can always block native ads because they have to indicate that their an ad. :)
Now that's what I call some chrome rims
One wonders if these two stories are related? #justsaying @dewitt yes. Point being it isn't Tumbrification, that's just how it's always been. Except no techmeme in the 1980s@louisgray @dewitt this isn't a modern trend. This is like complaining about dozens of local papers republishing Reuters/AP stories
Looks like I'll be speaking at #SMXEast on October 1st. See you there. - #ppc #ppcchat #SEMThe hidden subtext of freezing eggs as a tech company perk is maternity leave is fatal to your career so postpone it

Retweeted by Dare ObasanjoAt Amazon, going on maternity leave is a career death sentence. Shocking blog post by @jcheiffetz on her time there
I'd like to thank all the Amazon employees who cried at their desks to make this possible ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿšš๐Ÿท๐Ÿธ๐Ÿน๐Ÿบ Technical Interview Cheat Sheet: A handy guide the most common questions asked in technical interviews coverage of recent @BingAds releases.

Anyone else have a stop loss order triggered only for the market to jump back 10% in 2 hours? ๐Ÿ˜ญWearing an Optimus Prime mask for the NYT article about your company being worth $1 billion? Winning at life
A bit of poor timing with this article, eh @TechCrunch? it's all employees including warehouse and retail@osterman about 53% are in the category "laborers & helpers" so yes.As tech diversity goes, Amazon seems commendable w/ 15% black employees but only 1% leaders are black - #GlassCeiling@deray had a dream I thanked you for #CampaignZero and preventing BLM from ending up like #occupywallstreet. Decided to do it for real. Thx
More interesting than Ford/GM being disrupted by electric + self driving cars is what complements get disrupted & new classes of biz createdElectric + self driving cars & Uber will disrupt the car industry like touch & apps disrupted Nokia & Blackberry
@stevesi @migueldeicaza hard to find any .NET devs that complain about lambdas or LINQ compared to people who complain about any C++ feature@stevesi @migueldeicaza except for delegates. Delegates key building block for lambdas & LINQ which is huge boon to C#. Sun missed boatToday we launched Campaign Zero, a comprehensive plan to end police violence. Check it out

No more organic content above the fold for mobile queries in Google just ads. Gotta make that๐Ÿ’ฐ metrics on adoption of cloud & mobile apps by businesses Facebook has executed and surpassed expectations with a stellar team. The expectation that other apps will repeat that is folly ๐Ÿ˜Š@joshelman the engagement numbers I've seen are crazy. Becoming a bigger video destination than YouTube/FB still not a cake walk@joshelman Snapchat would need to be a bigger video destination than both FB & YouTube. That is a bold bet. :)@joshelman Twitter only has a "problem" because of market expectations. I expect Snapchat to monetize worse per user and need crazier growthLessons learned from reading post mortems summarizes top patterns in public post mortems from cloud services Beats Google Now On Tap To Android With New โ€œBing Snapshotsโ€ by @gsterling
Retweeted by Dare Obasanjo@joshelman I'm sure @snapchat will make money. Question is whether they will meet expectations or suffer @twitter's fate
@BenedictEvans @mihirssharma in the 3 years since I got my current job Twitter has gone from $0-$1B a year. Dissing snapchat now seems sillySnapchat is setting up to be the next Twitter. Could make a ton of ๐Ÿ’ฐsomeday but won't matter because not as big as FB
@sriramk real mismatch between music and the visuals on the new ad.I think George Zimmerman is trying to break some sort of Worst Person In The World record. Good effort, George, you're almost there!
Retweeted by Dare Obasanjo@BenBajarin @BenedictEvans @claireatki without baseline of retention percentage of Spotify/Pandora/etc stat is meaningless@JamilahLemieux @deray @drdre that this level of vitriol against women passes without comment in mainstream music is shocking today@JamilahLemieux @deray I found the skit in @drdre's "Loose Cannons" and NWAs "To Kill a Hooker" quite disturbing for their misogyny
@TProphet @dakami @pmarca every tech company has stack ranking. They just don't advertise it as blatantly as Microsoft didInside Microsoft - A 'Velvet Sweatshop' or a High-Tech Heaven? #1989 #Amazon #HistoryIsACircle just open sourced Stephen Hawkingโ€™s speech system and itโ€™s a .NET WinForms app ๐Ÿ’ฏ I thought that when I saw initial rebuttal on LinkedIn from a manager of managers. Perspective different from frontline employee@Carnage4Life People are saying things like "congrats on your escape" to each other on this thread about working at Amazon ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜ฑBezos responds to NYT article on Amazon working conditions. Meanwhile comments on @reddit confirm article's premise
@joshelman @sriramk how many people do you know who work there? Everything in the article rings true from convos with friends for years@joshelman there are multiple paths to success. Google pampers employees while Amazon cracks the whip. Both successful. No single narrative@sbohlen @aronchick they are not mutually exclusive. There are terrible places to work where tough people thrive (e.g. most prisons)@FAKEGRIMLOCK people have been saying that for 20 years. #stillwaitingWhat people miss is that FB sells access to users based on what data says about them.Data in itself not valuable being a gateway to users is@aronchick @sbohlen it accurately describes a terrible place to workMicrosoft bashed for stack ranking while Amazon has prospered with it. Goes to show pundits have no idea what makes companies succeed & failThe New York Times jumps on the "Amazon is a terrible place to work" meme. States people crying at their desk common are only two hard problems in distributed systems: 2. Exactly-once delivery 1. Guaranteed order of messages 2. Exactly-once delivery

@netmeg try disabling and re-enabling the network device from network & sharing centerAfter 5 years it turns out tablets were as much a fad as netbooks
@cdixon @fmanjoo you argued people like them not that they are "fake". Most people don't reason about how each item on page generated@cdixon @fmanjoo no, the point of native ads on FB, Google, Twitter, etc is that most people can't tell the difference from real content
@fmanjoo the stock market will penalize them if they don't after this. They'll care about stock price because employees doPress realizes they can't compete with distribution or access to data FB & Google have and so paint their efforts as evil to protect turfWhy would the press be mad that Google only tweets positive trending searches versus racist/sexist/etc ones?
You mean to tell me the studio that made Daredevil, Elektra, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, X3, & 2 Fantastic Fours made a bad movie?
Retweeted by Dare ObasanjoBillG got bored with big company problems and decided to eradicate diseases. Google founders now have new startups. Wonder what Zuck will doFounders clearly bored with squeezing more data from users and money from advertisers and want to "change the world" again. Thus #alphabetThere was Google cloud services + Google advertising versus Google's next generation ideas (self driving cars, Nest, etc). Not sales vs devsRead worst post I've ever seen on @asymco today. Google isn't altruistic engineering versus money grubbing sales. -
Interesting watching search engines struggle with what the right result should be for #alphabet. I think @bing wins favorite troll of the day of the past few weeks felt familiar. Realized Dan Lyons predicted them at the beginning of the year you are wondering why Google created #alphabet, I think this essay is a good place to start if @paulg wrote because he knew about not owning #alphabetThe Duggars have begun asking for donations. A great way my family saves money is by not having dozens of children.
Retweeted by Dare ObasanjoMistake startups & BigCos often make is assuming competitors are stupid vs understanding why they do things that way people realizing @BingAds provides a better experience and ROI for advertisers Uber's valuation means Hertz is undervalued is like thinking Netflix's valuation meant Blockbuster was undervalued. #dumbinvestors
WeChat's million apps hosted in one app approach is what I'd assumed Facebook's mobile app would be. think private valuations too high (Uber $51B AirBnB $24B) and think it means public companies undervalued ๐Ÿ˜‚@stevesi best way to measure advertising channels is ROI not by trying micromanage how many people see your ad. Print ads existed without it@stevesi that's not what the initial article you linked to was focused on. Agree that too many intermediaries cause problem in display ads@stevesi @VentureBeat on the other hand, the accountability of the print ad business is impeccable ๐Ÿ˜‰
