Lead-Gen Startup Integrate Nabs $4.25M Series A from Foundry Group Integrate, a startup with a performance-based marketing platform that includes lead exchange and SEM (search engine marketing), has just closed a Series A round of funding from Foundry Group. The funding, which comes to $4.25 million, is a no-brainer for the Foundry Group, an early-stage VC firm based in Boulder, CO. “Foundry Group believes there is a large need and desire for performance-based marketing," said Foundry Group managing partner Seth Levine. "We think there is a huge swing to performance marketing, and Integrate provides the technology needed to make it succeed." Integrate’s platform is all about performance and transparency; its customers only pay for qualified leads and conversions — that could mean a sale or a phone call, depending on the type of campaign. Advertisers and publishers work together and communicate through Integrate's platform, where each party can review important information about the other party's business.

Sistema solar 2 "The Onion's" Fake Sports Site Launches on Comedy Central Satirical mastermind and cultural lampooner, The Onion, has just launched a brand new website for SportsDome, its funny/fake sports web show. The site is a collaboration with Comedy Central, which will be turning the web show into a television show in January. Anyone familiar with the SportsDome's current website won't feel too out of place at the new site. The site features clips from the show, clips from The Onion's video vault, extended interviews, a "photo finish" picture section and additional resources much like the websites for The Daily Show or The Colbert Report. What distinguishes the SportsDome site from its new cohort is how the website functions as an extension of the show. It will also function as a stripped down sports blog, previewing and teasing sections that may appear on the show or offering coverage on breaking sports news throughout the week. The SportsDome site still has some kinks to iron out.

Hands-on: CNN’s Stunning New iPad App [PICS] CNN's highly visual new iPad app hit the App Store on Tuesday morning, bringing many of the media company's best-known products — including all of its articles and videos from, as well as live breaking news video coverage and hourly radio updates — to the iPad for free. Unlike the iPad apps of most other publications, CNN's app [iTunes link] replicates neither the format of its website nor a newspaper layout. Instead, users are drawn to headlines laid upon enlarged thumbnails to explore different kinds of content — sports is juxtaposed against tech, which is sandwiched between stories on finance and government policy — although they also have the option to browse by section and headline in a text-only format as well. "We've really worked to make this thing feel like it was meant for the iPad," said KC Estenson, SVP and general manager of The app is also more social than any of those released by other major media properties.

Because of varying definitions of the term paradox, some of the following are not considered to be paradoxes by everyone. This list collects only scenarios that have been called a paradox by at least one source and have their own article. Although considered paradoxes, some of these are based on fallacious reasoning, or incomplete/faulty analysis. Informally, the term is often used to describe a counter-intuitive result.

Método de Aprendizaje This is a guest post by Glen Allsopp of PluginID. Have you ever read an informative book, only to later remember just a few main points — if anything at all? The problem might be that you’re using one of the least efficient ways of learning available. The Cone of Learning I remember back about 7 years ago when I was taking music lessons at school, there was a poster on the wall that really grabbed my attention. Image Credit After doing some research, I found that the contents of that poster were based upon the work of Edgar Dale back in 1969. Today, many of you may know this as the Cone of Learning, but beware: although the cone is in fact based upon the results of Dale’s research, the percentage figures were never actually cited by Dale, and added by others after the initial investigation. Based on the research we can see that: The Cone of Learning suggests why you are more likely to remember parts of a movie than you are from a book on the same topic. Learning Almost Anything
