Daily Thoughts 1/2/2011
I spent some time looking through Crunchbase which is a free directory of technology companies. http://www.crunchbase.com/There are quite a few companies that are publishing oriented like Rethink Books, Wattpad, Ookabooka, Bookbrewer, and Open Story Board. I have not really looked too closely at the individual companies yet.
I also found out where venture capital and media meet. There is a conference called OnMedia NYC 2011 which focuses on wall street and media. http://www.aonetwork.com/AOEvents/OnMedia/OnMedia-NYC-2011
I have been reading some more of Information Architecture for the World Wide Web. Right now, I am reading about how to label sites. It includes how to choose words by using surveys as well as keyword analysis. It has a formal feel to it. I am learning how informal the metatags I am using for this site are.
I applied to a job at Google tonight. I have been applying to a few places here and there.
