Noah Kagan – Maverick or Eccentric Genius?

Noah Kagan – Eccentric Genius or Maverick?

He cuts a mercurial shape across the tech landscape, but the famously former Facebook #30 Noah Kagan has finally put the record straight and moved on. Kagan’s notorious ejection from Facebook Towers in 2006 has passed into tech folklore as a lesson in how not to help the world’s most promising startup develop, but a recent post on the AppSumo CEO’s blog okdork.com has given us a glimpse into his world and how he really felt about leaving Facebook and missing out on a life-changing sum of money when the company floated earlier this year. In His Own Words Kagan’s brutally honest post shows a philosophical side to the guy that was labelled a ‘liability’ and clearly demonstrates how he has matured since the Facebook showdown. He now agrees that at the time, the right decision was made for the company. He said: “After running AppSumo for over two years I’ve finally understood that Facebook made the right decision to let me go… “I was a show-er at Facebook. I dealt with chaos of a 30 person company extremely well.  Most decisions were me walking over to Mark’s desk for approval, but at 150 people it was a group meeting…

Prismatic: Hoping to Succeed Where Other News Aggregators Have Failed

Want news that relevant to you? Want it delivered direct to your smartphone? You’d better check out startup news aggregator Prismatic. This is one company that seem to have rewritten the rulebook when it comes to online news and could provide some great opportunities for those looking for media jobs. By attracting the crème de la crème of the NLP/Machine Learning PhDs, Prismatic claims to be able to harness the power of social media and some clever distribution to give consumers a better way of accessing content online. According to Prismatic founder Bradford Cross, his company offers a service that lies somewhere between an RSS feed and Twitter and ends up providing the same kind of service offered by newspapers only with a wider range of sources. Cross said: “It’s not just about personalization… it’s about how media is consumed now. In the old days, you could just go to the New York Times and get all your news, or whatever. But that’s not the case any more, and it will likely never be the case again. The news is all distributed now, to a thousand different places.” In order to make sure Prismatic remains at the top of its…

BarrettSF – a fledgling ad shop with veteran talent

BarrettSF – a fledgling ad shop with veteran talent advertising account executive

The family of online advertising agencies has an additional member this month, with the launch of fledgling ad shop barrettSF. Aspiring art directors, copywriters and account managers may feel stirred into striking out on their own after hearing the San Francisco startup’s story. It’s the brainchild of veteran creative leader Jamie Barrett, who until recently was a partner and executive creative director at Goodby, Silverstein and Partners, and his erstwhile Goodby buddy, Patrick Kelly. Barrett’s 27 year long career has won him accolades for his work on the NBA, Comcast and Nike. 2011 saw him hit his tenth year with Goodby. He also turned 50 years of age. Barrett explained, “Those two things made me go, ‘I’ve got another big chapter in me, and what’s that going to be?’” The rise of new small ad shops He and Kelly are but one of a stream of creative leaders that have walked away from established agencies in the last two years to start new ad shops of their own. Other prominent names include Alex Bogusky, Gerry Graf and Ty Montague, each of whom, like Barrett, had reached an age where they could tap into an abundance of experience to launch their…

What does SoPost Mean for the Future of Mail Delivery?

How many times have you ordered something online, only to miss the delivery? According to the founders of the latest app on the block, SoPost, failed first-time deliveries have direct costs of almost £1 billion in the UK alone and this issue is something the London-based start up is hoping to address, if you’ll pardon the pun. This latest app is something those on the lookout for media jobs won’t want to be without – after all, you don’t want to miss that interview date or job offer. By mapping social IDs like Twitter handles, Facebook names, phone numbers and email addresses SoPost aims to link these with physical addresses so packages will always find you, whether you’re at work, at home, or at Mom’s. The service can also be used to send gifts to friends using nothing more than a Twitter username or a Facebook ID. What is it Exactly? SoPost founder Jonathan Grubin explains: “An address should be where you are, or where you want things to be sent, rather than the last postcode somebody has for you. “SoPost is about turning the things that we know and that rarely change – like our social IDs and email…

Resultly – Heralding the Advent of Web 3.0?

Want to search for media jobs quickly, without being bombarded with ads and irrelevant information? You’d better try Resultly. Imagine the scene: you’re sat at your laptop searching for information on the latest iPhone or you’re on the hunt for a new job. You want user reviews, features and prices; openings, company information or employee information, but first you have to sift through endless content that’s entirely irrelevant. This was the scenario that Resultly founder Ilya Berak found himself in late one night as he researched the latest technology. Berak explains: “I went to Google search like everyone else in the world, and looked up ‘specs on the Xoom’, but I didn’t find what I was looking for on the first page, plus I had to spend too much time typing more and more refined searches, including negative keywords to suppress the results I didn’t want, and clicking and pointing repeatedly, digging for the information.” Subsequent searches on Twitter, Craigslist, eBay and Digg proved equally frustrating and the whole exercise had taken him hours. This exasperating experience led to the birth of Resultly, an alerts engine that aims to take the pain out of Internet searches. Resultly – the Claims…
