Steve Jobs: 20 Life Lessons

Steve Jobs: 20 Life Lessons | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

“If it could save a person’s life, would you find a way to shave ten seconds off the boot time?” he asked. Kenyon allowed that he probably could. Jobs went to a whiteboard and showed that if there were five million people using the Mac, and it took ten seconds extra to turn it on every day, that added up to three hundred million or so hours per year that people would save, which was the equivalent of at least one hundred lifetimes saved per year.”

Storify Curation Tool Adds Conversation With Livefyre Comments | ReadWriteWeb | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Storify, the Twitter and multi-media curation service that's taken the indie and mainstream media worlds by storm, finally added the ability to post comments on stories tonight with the experimental addition of independent commenting platform Livefyre. Storify hasn't announced the feature yet, but Livefyre has.

 

In order to opt-in to comments on your Storify, users must click the settings button near their logged-in avatars in the top right of the page. Then a link to the Labs page will appear on the left side, which today contains nothing more than a check-box to turn on Livefyre.
