Jeff Bezos

Jeff Bezos met with Washington Post staffers for the first time since he decided to buy the newspaper yesterday.

Washington Post reporters tweeted out Bezos quotes from the question and answer he did with the staff.

Here are the two that I found most interesting. 

He doesn’t want the Washington Post to be 100% ad-supported because then the advertiser becomes the customer. The reader should be the number one customer, according to Bezos. 

On competition: JB worried abt any product that’s 100 percent ad-supported, because then you “start thinking your customer is advertisers.”

The Dallas Cowboys Are Letting Fans Conduct Their Own Press Conferences Via Google+ Hangout

DeMarcus Ware and the Dallas Cowboys are changing the game, and it goes well beyond the football field, where he leads the NFL with 15 sacks. 

The Cowboys linebacker is one of – if not the – first athlete on a professional team to hold a Google+ Hangout with his fans.

In case you’re unaware, the hangout is basically a group video chat for up to 10 people. 

The Cowboys star and his fans took part in an intimate question and answer session, giving people an opportunity to speak directly with Ware.

It’s definitely a novel idea in this lockout age for fans feeling disconnected from the athletes they follow.

Hopefully other organizations will take note and take advantage of this opportunity.

Get.com Is an Ask-and-Answer Site for Finding the Right Products [Shopping]

Source: http://lifehacker.com/5842849/getcom-is-an-ask+and+answer-site-for-finding-the-right-products

Get.com Is an Ask-and-Answer Site for Finding the Right ProductsGet.com is a Q&A site for getting product recommendations from other people. You can ask things like “what’s the best laptop under $1,000” or “what has your experience been with the Honda Civic?”

It’s a bit like Quora and other question and answer communities or tools, but dedicated to finding stuff to buy or use with categories ranging from electronics to parenting. Get is also similar to sites like Bestcovery and FindTheBest, but feels like it could be more community-oriented.

(By the way, although you’re prompted to sign up and connect with Twitter and Facebook, it’s not necessary.)

Another plus for the service: Get.com is pretty easy to remember.
