It’s beaten back Friendster, MySpace and a half-dozen other pretenders, and — at least so far — is successfully holding off both Twitter and Google+.

You may be familiar with Flud as the news reader app that’s trying to build an appealing alternative to Flipboard and Pulse. Flud launched iOS platform back at the end of 2010 with a heavy focus on design — and a simple user interface. Fast Company even gave Flud the 2010 Design Award of The Year. The startup has since launched its social news sharing app on Android, raised $1 million in seed from Ludlow Ventures, Scott Belsky, and Detroit Venture Partners, and is re-tooling its app for Mango, as Jordan reported last month , for release in January. It’s been off to a great start, but to really offer a service that competes with the big boys, Flud is on a mission to build a personalized news-sharing ecosystem. Today, the startup is adding some important functionality into its app in an effort to do just that, as Flud 2.0 now allows users to create and broadcast their own news personalities.

This contrasts with traditional taxonomies in which the hierarchy of categories is fixed and unchanging. The colon classification developed by S. R.
Si une société dégage du chiffre d'affaires mais n'est pas encore rentable , sa valorisation ne sera toujours pas calculée en fonction de son excédent brut d'exploitation (Ebitda), qui correspond au solde entre les produits d'exploitation et les charges d'exploitation. " On dit dans ce cas que son excédent brut d'exploitation n'est pas normatif, la valorisation sera alors calculée en fonction du taux de croissance du chiffre d'affaires ou de sa marge brute " précise Benoist Grossmann. Comme dans le cas d'une société en phase de création, "une valorisation est le plus souvent proportionnelle à l'argent levé. Dans la plupart des cas, un investisseur prendra 30% du capital, qu'il injecte un ou cinq millions d'euros .
Gerrit Visser has been digitally curating content since “just after the internet was invented” in 1996. Curation has come a long way and today he’s curating on Paper.li using smart knowledge networks — people in the know who can be trusted. There are many faces to Gerrit Visser: digital curator, blogger at SmartMobs and thinker at Brainstorms (virtual communities set up by Howard Rheingold ), expert on knowledge management and learning, and nomadic worker.
