Pin It… Pin It Good: Making the Most of Pinterest

Lots of copyright non-infrigement: http://www.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=death%20note
I guess pinterest users didn’t read the part about copyright on your post.
On a more serious note, it looks like google/bing’s image search service, only you get to click the uploader name and get more images(that may or may not be related to the first one)

The Daily Post

We’ve talked Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram. But for many blogs, the biggest source of traffic from a social network isn’t any of those: it’s Pinterest.

If you’ve eschewed Pinterest because you don’t care about ombre cakes or repurposing wooden pallets for home decor use, you might be missing out on a huge audience for your blog (and some delicious cake). Today, we’ll push past the inspirational quotes with beautiful typography, turn left at the green smoothies, and explore whether Pinterest is a good match for your blog.

FFmpeg, keepvid.com and Pyglet

I think if I were to use these 3 tools my video search website would be feasible. Problem is, it’s so much work just to get to the part where I need to use my full blown creativity to create auto-taggers from scratch that I get lazy just thinking about it.

Another project would be my quote website. I could limit quote length to avoid copyright problems… however, javascript and flash text would remain a problem. This one would be a lot easier, certainly a lot easier than writing that redlink add-on. I could pull this one off in less than a week. But it sort of seems like going back to a ill-fated project.

What about the composite hedge? I got distracted half-way when I thought I had found an error on my broker part. I tried to exploit it only to realize I was confusing 1 “pip” with 1 “dollar”(the value of 1 pip varies according to currency pair being traded).

The composite hedge website would be easy too. At least if I avoid stock/commodities being valued in foreign currencies at first.

KeepVid.com vs DOwnloadHelper

I always thought the reason we needed a plugin to download yt videos was that a webpage doing just that would’ve been taken down due to copyright issues. But there it is, a webpage that renders downloadhelper obsolete.

Makes me want to code a webpage that extracts quotes like my add-on did(add-on that I couldn’t get hosted on mozilla’s official website)

January Effect

Just ran an algo that extracted the number of positive(against previous months) months in the Dow Jones Index.

January: 68(months closing higher than december)
Feb: 67 (… than january)
MArch: 65
April: 69

I don’t see any January effect(I used about 110 years), December seems to be a little above the rest of the pack(75). But the csv file starts halfway trough the year so slightly higher values for end year months were expected.

Also, I’m left pondering over whether wikipedia’s article about January predicting the rest of the year includes January when measuring the year. If so, it wouldn’t be surprising/profitable to see a higher number of positive years containing a positive january.

Open Analytics Protocol Comment #1

The one thing I haven’t thought about is how auto-taggers developers are going to get cash. I thought about adding the result plus an ad link but clients could not show the suggested ad and just extract the information(whether a tag applies or not)…

How do I warn the autotagger it’s ad has been shown? Seems impossible with just php and firefox. I would probably need a modified browser or browser extension.

I could centralize everything I guess but that would mean checking other people’s code for exploits… such a pain.

Minimum Wage

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-01-14/seven-noble-laureates-urge-increase-in-u-s-worker-minimum-wage.html#!1,2313636928

How about this small stimulus by increased spending being matched by a small decrease in business expansion/creation?

How come people who are paid to think logically can come up with this free lunch where entrepreneurs get less money but still work with the same effort? That makes NO SENSE AT ALL!!! This is logic people. It comes before mathematics and statistical models.
