Google Killing Apps
Not sure we agree with all the logic here. Google is killing something you don't have to be a programmer to use in favor of things only programmers know how to use.

X + Smartphone = Cool: Smart Bike Startup Yunmake Gets Series A Investment | TechCrunch

X + Smartphone = Cool: Smart Bike Startup Yunmake Gets Series A Investment | TechCrunch | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it
Yunmake, a Hangzhou-based smart bike maker, has raised a Series A led by Shunwei Capital, the investment firm led by Xiaomi chief executive officer Lei Jun...
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

X + Smartphone = Cool
If you read this quick notice about Yunmake's series A funding you will see a common thread. We've noticed how the Internet of Things means everything from our wifi speakers to home security becomes less than DULL when appified.

Strange bicycle + Smartphone = Cool in this case. Any company doing anything would be advised to find ways to create the same kind of digital, software, hardware, virtual, hard goods and human interaction Yunmake's series A promises.

Startup Medium Raises $50M & Read Time App "Readism" May Be Why

Startup Medium Raises $50M & Read Time App "Readism" May Be Why | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it

Medium's Read Time App and Scoop.it's Lean Content
This Curagami post shares KUDOS for Guillaume Decugis and the @scoopit team. Medium's making their read time app, somethg they call Readism, available across the web is sure to hasten every prediction Guilluame and company made about lean content marketing several years ago. 

Medium's new "app" is a Chrome extension. If you are creating content and NOT using it  you're nuts. We decided to make two posts instead of one when we saw six minute read time on our lean content + tools riff. 

We wanted to add a few tools to Scoop.it's Why Lean Content Is The Future of Content Marketingpost. We wanted to add:

  • Haiku Deck (like more than Slideshare)
  • Feedly Pro (so you have a site)

But their side did say "many more", so we will save our 1,000 word six minute read content curation tools post for tomorrow. In the meantime, if you're not using Medium's read time app Readism and you use content to market online you're nuts.

We have put together a list of tools that can help you create amazing visual content like infographics, memes, gifs, etc. Must read for every online marketer.

Marty Note

Great list mostly new to me. Missing one of my favorite visual marketing tools Haiku Deck: http://haikudeck.com/ . Haiku Deck is much more than a simple UI on the Creative Commons. If you are SMART you will use Haiku and some of these other #cooltools to create the kind of arresting visual marketing we all need and aspire to daily.
