4 Must-have music apps for your Android phone
fascinated: • Hype! - I love building stuff, but being in a small independent team, there simply aren’t enough of us to make Hype Machine work on every platform out there. So we were thrilled to see Matt use our API to create a free Android app that lets you check out what’s new on the Hype Machine. Try it out, though I am obviously biased. :) • Cloudskipper - Listening to music in the default...

benjaminstein: Mobile Commons launched a free web app today. It’s super simple but solves an annoying problem for marketing departments: How can you advertise all the different versions of your mobile app (Android, iPhone, etc) with a single URL? The solution: Apparated.com - a single magical URL that automatically redirects users to the correct app store based on their phone. this is...
GVOYW: Feeling like hell, so I’m working from home. My day will be 10 hours of sweats + Autechre’s Tri Repetae + my favorite seat in the house, our chez lounge. I thought this video looked kind of weird, but it is funny to think this is essentially what I look like 50 hours a week.
brevityness asked: Is a "growth hacker" a nerdy way of saying "hiring manager"?
When Tweetie became part of the Twitter family the user growth was huge,...– TweetDeck joins Twitter. HAHAHHAHAHHAHA ohh that’s rich
And the site’s visual designer was actually hired as the Dropbox community...– At Dropbox, Over 100 Billion Files Served–And Counting. Let that quote sink in. This is the guy that also does all the cute drawings. If you want to work at Dropbox, email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Part of Dropbox’s ability to scale successfully, said Houston, is the startup’s...– Dropbox Users Save 1 Million Files Every 5 Minutes. The people at Dropbox are awesome. This note about scheduling is right on. Plenty of folks get in at noon and stay, by my standards, really late. I get in between 7 and 9, and usually leave between 5:30-6. The difference is that I have kids, and...

The standard process of organizing knowledge by departments, and...– Richard Hamming, The Art of Doing Science and Engineering (via jacecooke) This is a big problem in computer science and particularly machine learning. Researchers in ML seem to rediscover things known to statisticians for years.
Down the aisle is Welch’s 100% Grape Juice, with no fat and emblazoned with a...– Foods With Health Benefits, or So They Say - NYTimes.com We don’t shop in grocery stores anymore. They are - quite literally - filled with nothing but poison. (via evangotlib)
Netflix traffic, be it movies or TV shows streamed over the wires, now accounts...– Netflix Owns The Evening Web | Fast Company (via davemorin) This shouldn’t be normalized by bits but by hours. I’d like to see what percentage of internet hours netflix takes up in the evening. Ohh, and the analytics guy in me wants to see a histogram of percentages, so I can see what...
In high schools, the vocational arts have all but vanished. We’ve elevated...– Mike Rowe Senate Testimony. This is an interesting part of the higher education bubble. Many people who are going to college that shouldn’t are also not learning skills important for society to function.
I hesitate to generalize about all artists and all technologists. Which marks me...– Kellan Elliot-McCrea answering the question: Do Artists and Technologists Create Things the Same Way? I love this answer. (via christmasgorilla) Beautiful, though I think that really good technologists (and artists) are those that find themselves contending with both sides of this. The best...
B-M Says Facebook Assignment “Should Have Been... →
rafer: Rafer sez: This is such white-washed crap. This Facebook assignment is so minor league — and so relatively overdisclosed — relative to the bad juju that Burson-Marsteller profits from that it’s unmeasurable. B-M got better about it’s own PR after 9/11 (not merely a correlation), but to quote the Guardian in early 2002 while the truth was still out there: Burson-Marsteller is the...
