A quick chat with the legendary @EvanKirstel. I see Evan several times a year at various conferences including the BS Summit. We talk about his new venture into digital health, our health, his age, goals and plans for 2018, and a few other nuggets. Dave and Evan New Years 2018 from Dave Michels on Vimeo. I also decided to try out Vimeo. Was it good for you?
I will lose eight hours of my life because of Apple, and I begrudge it. My iPhone is two years old and well, it’s not as it used to be. The battery lives for the next charger cord like an alcoholic lives for his next drink. Apple admits they are slowing down older iPhones so that a design defect that causes them to crash if run at full speed with an older battery doesn’t show up.
Four days ago I was interested in Verizon OneTalk, a service that lets me move my phone number into the cloud and then have menus, voice mail, and simultaneously ring multiple phones at the same time. I went to the Verizon website, but eventually ended up resorting to using Google to find information on “Verizon OneTalk” on the Verizon website. (Perhaps it was there and I just didn’t see it.) The website gave me some glittering generalities, but nothing specific.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
