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
Because my loan is in underwriting right now, and they know we will have to file our 2013 taxes by Oct. 15th, I have to take my paper return into an IRS office and get it stamped and get a copy of it. Yeah, I know, first world problems. I will be missing a day of Dreamforce to do this. Hopefully just half a day. Unknown.
so yesterday was my first day at the new part-time little pay no benefits nonprofit gig and it was kind of awesome. aside from having to get used to a new routine of having to be somewhere at a certain time dressed in grown-up clothes and adjusting to a schedule switching between jobs during the week, and digging through the files and emails...
Trying not to freak out about the house. We shortened the investigation period. Have been doing inspections and my main concern is the "cheap-ass siding" as our inspector called it. It's pressboard and very susceptible to water damage as well as termites. On one whole side of the house it's warped.
Besides the green beauty that is the Borland (Enterprise Technology Center) grounds, I love that my freeway exit is now "Santa's Village". I love the trees we can see out all of the windows. However, my cube is still just a cube, and I face the computer with my back to the corridor, so I don't get to see the trees.
the nonprofit I interviewed with last week needs a yes or no by week's end. I honestly don't know what to do. I've listed the pros and cons and it comes out mostly a wash in terms of potential risks versus rewards. part of me is truly excited by the challenge and sheer insanity of the job. the other part just wants a decent paycheck and benefits.
#saturdayff When I was very little, we lived in Amherst, MA and there was a corn field right next to our house. We used to play hide and seek in it and I have a vague memory of getting lost in it. We moved from there when I was six, so it is a pretty vague, yet visually vivid, memory. I see the corn stalks and how tall they were compared to me!
