Before my blog writing days at HubSpot, I was working at a marketing agency where I was in charge of social media posts for our clients.
One time, I was posting a blog on Facebook, but it kept aggregating the wrong image.
Frustrated, I went to Google to find the answer: social media cards.
Gone are the days when shoppers relied on word-of-mouth recommendations or were influenced by a more traditional TV, radio or newspaper advert before buying a product.

Black Friday is one of the biggest days in the retail calendar, and for good reason. Every year, the post-thanksgiving sale brings in more and more attention, and with that, revenue. However, with the ever-growing reliance on the digital world, we are seeing a significant shift towards online sales.
In 2018, while footfall in shops dropped by 5.
A few days back, there was an interesting post by Judy Robertson in the Communications of the ACM blog. The post, entitled “Stats: We’re doing it wrong”, builds upon a paper from last year’s CHI conference in which they report that more than 90% of the HCI researchers used the wrong statistical tools when analyzing and reporting on likert scale type of data.Read Full Story
Phys.com published an article a couple days ago NASA finds Neptune moons locked in ‘dance of avoidance’. The article is based on the scholarly paper Orbits and resonances of the regular moons of Neptune.
The two moons closest to Neptune, named Naiad and Thalassa, orbit at nearly the same distance, 48,224 km for Naiad and 50,074 km for Thalassa.
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), which is a buzzword these days, derives its name from its predecessor, Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP II) and is now helping to transform our industrial landscape.

A few days ago I decided to attend “iPhone Dev Camp 3”:http://www.iphonedevcamp.org/ at Yahoo’s Head Quarters in Sunnyvale, CA. It was a 3 day event starting Friday evening. Most of the event consisted of a hackfest where teams built a project of their choice and present it towards the end of the conference.

Immediately after PAPIs.io ’14 — write-up coming soon! — I spent a couple of days at Strata in Barcelona.
Strata has several tracks and I ended up going mostly to “business” sessions, but this synthesis of things I heard at the conference will be of interest to technical people as well.
Humans are inherently risk-averse: We spend our days calculating routes and routines, taking precautionary measures to avoid disease, danger, and despair.
Still, our measures for controlling the inner workings of our biology can be a little more unruly.
A lot of new exciting standards are coming to browsers these days, among them the WebRTC standard, which adds support for streaming video and audio from native devices such as a webcamera. One of the exciting things that this enables, is so called head tracking.Read Full Story
Though air quality is always a concern, other than a few hazy days, very few of us have been directly affected by the fires. Homelessness remains a huge problem on a humanitarian level, but the streets do not run with sewage, used needles do not litter the sidewalks and the housed do not cower in fear.Read Full Story
The American Epilepsy Society Seizure Prediction Challenge ended a few days ago, and I finished 10th out of 504 teams.
In this post I will briefly outline the problem and my solution.
Epilepsy is one of the most commonly diagnosed neurological disorders.
H2O World New York happened a few days ago and we are still in awe of the conference. It is rewarding to see such a strong community and recognized industry professionals making meaningful connections and learning with each other.Read Full Story
In these waning days of summer it is common to reflect on how the days were passed. For me, it has been a wild few months. I spent these hot and sticky New York City days building the vision, team, and financing for a new company. I am incredibly excited, and honored, to report that last week was our first “official” week of work.Read Full Story
