This is interesting because of the soooo many scams that promise you that you can earn money sitting at home. In parenthesis (hidden) it is implied that you dont have to work hard to do it.

 

This is one that is not a scam but it also highlights that it was all hard work.

 

It is a millennial project that earns money because millennials+ are watching.

The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Josh Rottenberg & Amy Kaufman:  "Since the advent of social networking services such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram — few of which existed when today's young movie audience was born — the duality of social media has bedeviled academics, artists and everyday people alike, as long-held social norms established in an analog world have rapidly given way to a new age of selfies, likes and status updates."

Liraz Margalit:  "[Tinder's] runaway success cannot be attributed solely to singles looking for quick hook-ups. The counter-intuitive truth is that Tinder actually provides users with all the information they need to make an informed first impression about a potential long-term mate.  And it does so by matching our human evolutionary mechanism."

The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Julian Scaff:  "Taking a user-centric approach and drawing upon the disciplines of visual design, psychology, and human-computer interaction (HCI) research, UX aims to design not just the visuals and interface, but the entire user experience."

siobhan-o-flynn's curator insight, October 18, 11:21 AM

"UX is short for User Experience. Broadly speaking UX design is a process for designing positive interactions between people (users) and products (often software or websites) and/or other people. Taking a user-centric approach and drawing upon the disciplines of visual design, psychology, and human-computer interaction (HCI) research, UX aims to design not just the visuals and interface, but the entire user experience. While UX is most often applied to software and website design, UX designers are also designing physical experiences like in-store shopping experiences, airport lounges, classrooms for schools, museum and art exhibitions, etc."
