Here are some Digital Media news tidbits I found interesting that you may have missed over the last few days…
-Apple announced plans to build campus in Austin, Texas at SXSW conference. via Mashable.
-Facebook announces Interests Lists.
“Interest lists can help you turn Facebook into your own personalized newspaper, with special sections—or feeds—for topics that matter to you. You can find traditional news sections like Business, Sports and Style or get much more personalized—like Tech News, NBA Players, and Art Critics.”
-Pinterest’s secret to success, explained their first investor Brian Cohen, is that “they listened.” – then they evolved.
“They were incredibly open for input. That’s really important as an instructive element for social entrepreneurs—anyone—[they were open] to those angel investors who care deeply about their success.”
– says Cohen, via Mashable.
-LinkedIn launches a Women’s Hackday — DevelopHer
“DevelopHer Hackday on June 30 – July 1, 2012. It’s a public competition for women engineers to get together, hack all night, meet amazing judges, eat food, do yoga, and compete with the best and brightest in Silicon Valley.”
This is interesting. I’ve heard that Facebook does this too. This video gives you a pretty cool overview of the hack day program they do every month at LinkedIn.
