In this post, I will explain the file uploading and attachment feature of Contact Form 7.
How do I put the icons on my maps ? This project doesn’t allow you to hotlink the icons . Once you found the icons you want to use on your maps, you must host the files on your own server or you can use Dropbox public feature to do so.
Hubdub is another wisdom of the crowds tool, launching today at DEMO, that takes somewhat of a social bookmarking approach to the presentation of smaller markets that can be created around a given topic, similar to the recently launched outQuib .
Viral marketing has generated a lot of excitement recently, in part because it seems like the ultimate free lunch: Pick some small number of people to seed your idea, product, or message; get it to go viral; and then watch while it spreads effortlessly to reach millions.

BuzzFeed.com is the owned and operated testing ground for all of our technology. The homepage of the site is powered by an algorithm that monitors 120 million uniques of partner audience that include Time, Aol News, TMZ, Life, and many more. When the BuzzFeed algorithm determines a piece of content on one of these sites to be "going viral" it triggers the story and flows it into rotation on a set of reserved units on BuzzFeed.Com "Going viral" is a proprietary measure, but we can at least say that it takes into account total traffic to a story in relation to the portion of that traffic that comes from sharing platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Stumbleupon, Digg, and any other external sources that. (Traffic driven to a story from a publisher's home page is not counted as viral because that audience is already on the publisher's site.)
The Pew Research Center has come out with a massive new report on the state of media as part of its Project for Excellence in Journalism, and it comes to a number of conclusions about where the industry stands — including the fact that Twitter and Facebook are still driving a fairly small amount of traffic to media outlets (although this segment is growing quickly) and that tech giants like Google, Yahoo and Microsoft control almost 70 percent of online advertising . But one other thing that becomes clear from the Pew report is just how big a role aggregators of all kinds — both human and machine-powered — are playing in news consumption. Despite the growing evidence to the contrary, many newspaper companies and other traditional media outlets still seem to think the vast majority of their audience comes to them directly and prefers to read their content above all other sources.
News aggregators have grown into all shapes and forms. Some are truly helping the producers of original content but others simply amount to mere electronic ransack. My daily media routine starts on Techmeme . It is a pure aggregator — actually an aggrefilter , as coined by Dan Farber, at the time editor-in-chief of Cnet, who recommended it.
Editor’s Note: This guest post is written by Nir Eyal , a founder of two startups and an advisor to several Bay Area incubators. Nir blogs about technology and behavior design at nirandfar.com . Face it; you’re hooked. It’s your uncontrollable urge to check for email notifications on your phone. It’s your compulsion to visit Facebook or Twitter for just a few minutes, but somehow find yourself still scrolling after an hour. It’s the fact that if I recommended a book to purchase, your mind would flash “Amazon” like a gaudy neon sign.
A number of people have asked and speculated about why the company I co-founded, Wesabe, shut down earlier this summer. Some of the claims or guesses about it are just factually wrong; others seem misinformed to me; others seem to have some truth. I thought I’d add my own opinion. In November 2006, Wesabe launched as a site to help people manage their personal finances.
