Best LittleCo of 2010: Tumblr

Best LittleCo of 2010: Tumblr | 2010 | Scoop.it
Every year since 2004, ReadWriteWeb has selected a best 'little company.' In past years we've given this honor to Flickr, 37Signals, YouTube (in 2006, the year it was acquired by Google), Twitter (in 2007, before it went mainstream), Zoho, and Aardvark. As you can see, many of these companies have gone onto much bigger things. When we select the Best LittleCo winner each year, we look for small companies (less than 100 employees) that have set the online world alight.(via @chikodi)This year there was plenty of competition. Foursquare won the battle of the check-in apps, Flipboard created an innovative iPad app that caught our imagination, Instagram burst onto the scene with a mobile photo app. The LittleCo that impressed us the most though was New York-based Tumblr.

Real or fake? Audiences auto-tuned in

Real or fake? Audiences auto-tuned in | 2010 | Scoop.it
This was life in 2010, when it was hard to tell the difference between real and fake or figure out whether it mattered. With Heidi Montag’s 10-procedure plastic-surgery orgy upping the ante for remodeled looks, with “reality’’ shows glutting the TV landscape, with a series of documentary-style films (“Exit Through the Gift Shop,’’ “Catfish,’’ “I’m Still Here’’) raising questions about truthiness, and with Sarah Palin (touting her “Alaska’’ show, a second book, and daughter Bristol on “Dancing With the Stars’’) the biggest political star in the firmament, Americans seemed to be saying: We don’t care if it’s true, we don’t care if it’s real, we just want to be entertained.

The FP Top 100 Global Thinkers | Foreign Policy

The FP Top 100 Global Thinkers | Foreign Policy | 2010 | Scoop.it
When historians look back to the moment when the post-Cold War reign of American power ended, they may well settle on 2010 as a crucial year. Everywhere, it seemed, there were signs that the long-predicted "rise of the rest" had finally occurred, whether in the newfound assertiveness of fast-growing China or the impatient diplomacy of new powers like Brazil and Turkey. Foreign Policy's second annual list of the Top 100 Global Thinkers fully reflects that new world. Beginning with Warren Buffett and Bill Gates (1), who teamed up to prove that even in tough times great new ideas can emerge, to forecasting economist Nouriel Roubini (12) to political leaders Barack Obama (3) and Angela Merkel (10), FP presents more than just their big ideas. Once again we took a unique survey of this very smart crowd. Nearly two-thirds participated to give you insight into their thinking on everything from how Obama's doing to their preference in new-age reading device (iPad, by a lot). But don't take our word for it -- take the same questionnaire we sent to our FP 100 and see how your answers match up against theirs.
