Real-time web analytics with Clicky Clicky clicky on the wall, who’s the best real-time analytics of them all? It’s not a hard question to answer. You should be using Clicky. Sure, Google Analytics has a real-time view of visitors on your site and what they’re doing, but it’s not exactly the best experience or easiest to understand. Since most analytics don’t let you see what’s happening today until the day after, it can be difficult to see how your marketing efforts are effecting people in real time. So let’s say you spent 10 hours on a thought provoking article and tweet it or submit it to You then sit there... and wait for the next day to check for visits, link backs, and interactions. With Clicky, you get real-time data that lets you react to changes in your traffic as they occur. So if your article hit the front page of a popular site like, you would see the traffic spike in Clicky immediately, along with links back to the sources sending you the traffic. You can also do one-click segmentation. P.S.

Roy Shilkrot, Jochen Huber, Connie K. republic wireless - a community of people “Works Like a Charm” Submitted by brian on Tue, 12/06/2011 – 1:03am As you may have seen, the initial reviews of republic wireless are coming in. We’re glad to read that professional testers and many of our earliest members appreciate the technology and that it’s working for them. Of course, we always can and want to make it even better, and we are. Equally, while the product technology "works like a charm" (in many ways, at least, especially this early in its life), we know very well that republic is not yet serving you the way that we want to. Either way, we thank you for your support! By way of update, since my previous post we have directed our efforts to the following main areas: Our progress in some of these areas is obvious, while in others it remains in the background. An Example: Numbers The process of issuing phone numbers is a great example of this dynamic. That’s a good indicator of the kind of company we are. What’s Next Hiring!

The Social Lab Ting - Mobile That Makes Sense News Challenge - Home Rose Park Advisors - Home Design | WarkaWater Inspiration The Warka’s water harvesting technique and construction system are inspired by several sources. Many plants and animals have developed unique micro- and nano-scale structural features on their surfaces that enable them to collect water from the air and survive in hostile environments. By studying the Namib beetle’s shell, lotus flower leaves, spider web threads and the integrated fog collection system in cactus, we are identifying specific materials and coatings that can enhance dew condensation and water flow and storage capabilities of the mesh. The termite hives have influenced the design of Warka’s outer shell, its airflow, shape and geometry. We also looked at local cultures and vernacular architecture, incorporating traditional Ethiopian basket-weaving techniques in Warka’s design. Front View Top View How it Works The external skeleton consists of bamboo and provides structural support and holds up the mesh, collector and canopy. Characteristics Materials Elements Modularity
