The New York Public Library announced a new partnership with Foursquare Wednesday that gives patrons a special "Find the Future Centennial" badge. The new badge celebrates the hundredth birthday of the library's Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on 42nd Street. To earn the new badge, Foursquare users can check in at various NYPL locations in the Bronx, Staten Island and Manhattan.
It turns out that bottomless bucket of Gmail storage actually does have a bottom. Just ask Mike Monteiro, the most recent person to break Gmail's usage cap. So much for, "never delete an e-mail again." When Gmail first launched in 2004, its massive storage space (then 1GB) was a highly touted feature. Over time, the amount of space made available to users has grown — by our count, it looks like standard Gmail and Google Apps users have about 7.3GB at their disposal today.
Anthony Weiner might be the most recent person to lose his job thanks to his posting on a social network, but he's not the only one. In the last few years we've seen dozens of instances where individuals, celebrities, athletes and politicians have lost their jobs or been forced to resign because of content posted to Facebook, Twitter and other social networks.
@mgsiegler@brianmcc Be label agnostic A&R. Take a cut for promoting talent, putting people on playlists, etc. A label play only works if they focus on unsigned artists that aren’t already hot. And even then it’s a huge risk.
@mgsiegler@brianmcc Can’t wait to read! I’ve been toying with writing my own analysis on this. I think rather than doing a label play, which risks angering the content suppliers (and stealing artists away from labels is a process that often involves time, money, and often lawyers), they should just
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".
