So I just checked out Cogmap which has some high level org charts for Google and Yahoo (which would be helpful for folks doing business development) but apparently lets anyone create a wiki-like org chart for any company.
The Cogmap Alexa chart looks quite promising.
Google is my favorite internet company, but not every project that Google launches wins in its category. The company has announced that it will be shutting down Google Answers. Yahoo Answers is relishing this victory. But Amazon\’s Askville and its forthcoming Questville will be interesting to watch.
Move over, William Hung!
Utah\’s own Devin Thorpe has posted a video of his incredible rendition of the BYU Cougar Fight Song.
I think you\’ll enjoy Devin\’s video even more if you first relive the excitement of the final seconds of the BYU victory over Utah. Check out this YouTube video that someone show from the stands.
This isn\’t new news–it happened on November 1st. Investors Business Daily published a nice article on MyFamily.com, and revealed that according to CEO Tim Sullivan, 2006 revenues will hit $150 million with an EBIDTA of $28 million. After being under the radar for several years, it\’s nice to see MyFamily getting some decent media attention recently. I think the CEO is doing a good job at telling the story.
Here\’s another impressive excerpt from the article:
It is interesting to look at the 5-year Alexa chart of MyFamily.com–a web site that was a high-flying pioneer in user generated content, photo sharing, free voice chat, and viral marketing; but which has been neglected in both development and marketing for nearly 5 years.
One of the fastest ways to build a high-traffic revenue-generating content-based web site is to get permission from hundreds of bloggers to syndicate their blog. Most bloggers write for the love of it, more than for money. So companies that syndicate have a great opportunity to pick up a lot of traffic at no cost to them.
I\’ve been syndicated recently by a blog network called The Money Blogs, and they\’ve asked me to link to them, so I am.
Bob Young, the founder of Red Hat formed lulu.com a few years ago to enable authors to self publish books. The site has an Alexa ranking of 3,386. It has a nice 3-year Alexa chart.
This past week I\’ve listened to an excellent businessjive.com podcast featuring famous blogger Robert Scoble, who just left Microsoft to join podtech.net. Judd Bagley did a great interview. You learn how Robert\’s background in journalism has positioned him to be a major player in the blogging and podcasting movements and how his father\’s relocating to Silicon Valley gave him phenomenal opportunities, even while he was in junior high or high school.
