- I'm looking for this teaspoon...in pink: Stand back, everybody: Pinterest has greatly expanded its search capacity so you can search just images, without words. (This WSJ article's behind a paywall.)
- Not consulting cookbooks? Slightly fewer Americans are reading print books, Pew Research finds.
- I can't find the measuring cup and now I know why: Nearly 40% of mobile users are afraid to use location services.
- Call me with that recipe: Clearer calls for all: Hangout video calls are getting a boost in quality.
- Pour me some data: Google just released a library of artificial intelligence software--and it's open source. Learn about Tensor Flow.
- Video recipes, anyone? Snapchat sees 6 billion video views per day, but what does that really mean? Useful article which also includes comparable data for the bigger earner of video views, Facebook. This adds nuance to your metrics, kids.
- If I knew you were coming, I'd have baked a cake: The University of California-Santa Barbara is digitizing audio from thousands of old wax cylinders, with 10,000 files already online for streaming. Great reuse of archival content!
- Wandering the kitchen: Google Maps is making it possible for you to download a specific area and use its directions, maps, and info search for that area even when you have no Internet connection.
- An extra cup: This week, I wrote on this blog about my new Ringly and how it enhances in-person interaction, and the Moderating Panels blog examined whether the moderator should introduce herself.
- My measure of the week: I've spent much of this week working with scientists in The Nature Conservancy's Science Impact Project as they start working on talks in the style of TED. They hail from the U.S., Palau, Belize, China, and Mongolia, and are working on amazing research. Looking forward to the next few months as their talks progress.
