How Did Baseball Fans Watch the World Series Before TV? - CityLab
"n the 1880s, baseball lovers would crowd for hours in opera houses, watching as behind-the-scenes workers gathered pitch-by-pitch updates via telegram and displayed them on stage. On a Library of Congress blog, media historian Mark Schubin writes about an Augusta, Georgia opera house, which in 1885 would configure a blackboard that had each team's lineup, a baseball diamond, punched-out holes for bases, and flags representing a baserunner's progress. Admission to the board: Ten cents." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Peak Google: Search advertising market is $50 billion. Google has most of that. Total advertising market is over $500 billion. Most of that is brand advertising. Google can't capture this market through search. In-stream, native advertising is the future. Very low down in the funnel. Biggest opportunity, top of the funnel, generating brand affinity
True money is not direct response, but brand advertising. Techies only focus on the direct response. - Todd Hoff
Or is the nature of brands changing? Not a pushed top down process where the guy with the most money wins. Brands now built more bottom up from social commentary and reactions. The quality of experience is what matters. - Todd Hoff
Google will not shrink. It will keep the search market. But the total online market is growing to $100-$200 billion and google is not in a good place to capture new forms of advertising. - Todd Hoff
You figured it out -- the top-down model is kaput. - Sean McBride

50 Percent Of American Workers Make Less Than 28,031 Dollars A Year - http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archive...
50 Percent Of American Workers Make Less Than 28,031 Dollars A Year
"The Social Security Administration has just released wage statistics for 2013, and the numbers are startling. Last year, 50 percent of all American workers made less than $28,031, and 39 percent of all American workers made less than $20,000. If you worked a full-time job at $10 an hour all year long with two weeks off, you would make $20,000. So the fact that 39 percent of all workers made less than that amount is rather telling. This is more evidence of the declining quality of the jobs in this country. In many homes in America today, both parents are working multiple jobs in a desperate attempt to make ends meet. Our paychecks are stagnant while the cost of living just continues to soar. And the jobs that are being added to the economy pay a lot less than the jobs lost in the last recession. In fact, it has been estimated that the jobs that have been created since the last recession pay an average of 23 percent less than the jobs that were lost. We are witnessing the slow-motion... more... - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

"In 1938 Los Angeles, Helen Hulick went to jail for wearing slacks in courtroom. 'Kindergarten teacher Helen Hulick made Los Angeles court history — and struck a blow for women's fashion — in 1938. Hulick arrived in downtown L.A. court to testify against two burglary suspects. But the courtroom drama immediately shifted to the slacks she was wearing. Judge Arthur S. Guerin rescheduled her testimony and ordered her to wear a dress next time.' 'The next day, Hulick showed up in slacks. Judge Guerin held her in contempt. She was given a five-day sentence and sent to jail.'" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

You only get two eyes. It's why although I am a perfect candidate for it (blind as an 80-year-old bat), I don't want to get vision surgery

Farm Confessional: What Butchering Your Animals Really Feels Like - Modern Farmer
"I have cried on butcher day in the past, when it is over. But now I usually have a day of tears in the week prior. It is on my mind, a conscious decision I make to kill an animal to eat it. It is a conflict to love animals, nurture them and kill them. I get it. Because I live it. But it’s also a conflict to raise a puppy and then send it off with a stranger. I don’t judge any kind of eater — be it lion, dog, coyote, hawk, cat, worm, vegan or meat-eater — for killing another creature, either vegetable or animal. When I was a vegetarian for about seven years, I began to feel that I had actually judged nature. I had taken myself out of her perfectly sound and wise food system. While I realize I am currently at the top of the food chain, I don’t take it lightly, and never will, and that is why I go to the extremes I do before, during and after harvest day. That is why I always check in with myself, asking, “Do I still want to raise an animal this year to eat it?” I hope I never stop asking that." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
