As Skift moves into the sixth year of operation, we are adding senior leadership and talent across the company. This senior talent we have brought in will help us take our excellent Editorial and Research teams to new heights. Over the past six months Skift has expanded its Research team to include three full-time analysts in addition to its team of outside expert analysts. In the past few months, we hired Rebecca Stone from Goldman Sachs and Seth Borko from JP Morgan as our Senior Analysts.
At Skift, we’re keeping a good thing going by hosting our flagship Skift Global Forum at the iconic Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall, Time Warner Center for the second consecutive year. We’ve been working hard to solidify our venue, dates, and hotel for Skift Global Forum, which will be held on September 27-28, 2018. We’ll be in the heart of Columbus Circle in New York City for an unbeatable two-day conference.
We’ve been pretty bullish on drone videos over this year, and this breathtaking video from Iceland below will show you why. Over the last few years as video tools have been democratized and Iceland has concurrently become a very popular destination, there is no shortage of videos showing the dramatic landscape of the country.
When revenue model was selling radio sets, it led to lotsa diversity of programming, more diversity meant more reasons to buy the sets by more people. When advertising became the model, it centralized the business, it became zero-sum game for attention of listeners.
Fascinating this: AT&T was the first big force in broadcasting (radio), NOT NBC/CBS/ABC back when broadcasting started. Another thing: the big revenue stream was sale of radio sets, not ads. From the excellent history book “The Master Switch” by Tim Wu. https://t.co/h1Wj5HoMmT
Turning back native in India has many steps, it starts as soon as you land at the airport & start speaking to the immigration official in Hindi when they insist on speaking in English. Certainly roadside chai in the Indian kuddah is a more advanced move. https://t.co/dGVxD874Zf
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".
