@curtwoodward thanks - got it fixed

@timrpeterson you are welcome!
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Sorry, NYC, Tumblr selling to Yahoo was not the “win” we needed
@JohnnyGoods You missed the point. It's not a "trend" story on the existence of acqui-hires, it's a story analyzing the last 6 mo of Yahoo's aggressive acquisition strategy. I'm pretty sure ALL big consumer Internet players have not bought up 9 small teams and killed their products in the last six months. And even if they had, this is about Yahoo, and the strategy is a change for that company.

@2William yes, big oops. thanks -- fixed now!
@remy_brooks that's a great point. It's a bit like an advertiser trying to join your conversation at a party

@elicolner just seeing this now-- thank you!
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Why Wander isn’t launching at SXSW, even though it would make perfect sense
I funded this because I love Planet Money so much I want to proclaim it to the world on a t-shirt. That my t-shirt purchase goes to fund a Planet Money story is icing on the cake!

@jamzee @eringriffith Ah ok thanks for clarifying - I was under the impression that that only applied to inventions created for the "Wink" part of the partnership but it looks like I was incorrect!
2 months, 1 week ago on GE gets on the right side of the patent fight with Quirky partnership
@jamzee Giving it away - the idea being they are patents that GE is never going to apply to Quirky-style consumer products, so if someone else can, then why not let them?
@neoganda The question of economic viability is not what we tried to address here -- both Michael and I have discussed those challenges in other articles including the one you linked to. The related articles at the bottom of the page are chosen randomly, we don't control that.

@jknecht07 The line was ridiculous, I didn't even try - but also, this story isn't about events, its about marketing stunts.

@ranjanxroy @eringriffith haha, you make a good point. guess he got lumped into the "inexplicable costumes" category.
@ranjanxroy NO IDEA! only saw him once, pretty early in the morning. as evidenced by the empty streets, I may be the only one who ever saw him!
Google and FB taking large shares of ad spend doesn't mean news orgs can't sell ads. Some of that ad spend owned by Google (particularly their display network and mobile) means big national advertisers spend money with Google but the ad lands on a smaller news outlet's webpage. The news outlet splits the profit with Google. Not saying thats a great high margin business but it's not quite accurate to say Google has a monopoly on digital ads , ERGO no one else can thrive. Facebook will soon take its ad network out of the FB walled garden too.

@JVenator thanks. all well in the end :)
3 months, 1 week ago on I was wrong on my SXSW predictions. My winner is a company that isn’t even here
@krisditmore ha! the crown itself didn't crack, I meant that it was cracked off its root. I used dental glue to put the crown back in place and swallowed it while eating a delicious brisket taco from Stubb's :(
