Discord’s new Stage Discovery portal will connect live audio events with communities

If you’re new to Discord, you might be thrown off by the lack of an endless feed peppered with ads. On Discord, all of the action happens in interest-specific servers, and the company wants to make it easier for anyone to stumble across and plunge into those communities. The company launched Stage Channels, its own Clubhouse-like voice event rooms, in late March. With those building blocks in place, in June Discord will start surfacing events (think open mic nights, book clubs, etc.) through a n...

AirTag Owners Bemoan Inability to Let Others Track Their Items Via Family Sharing

Apple's new AirTag item trackers have been making their way into the hands of customers since Friday, and while the company has tried to describe the ways that they can be used to find lost items, many users are still surprised and disappointed to learn that the location of an AirTag can't be shared with other family members. On the face of it, sharing the location of an AirTag via Apple's Family Sharing feature should be a no-brainer, since individual members in a Family Sharing group can us...

SEO for Video Marketing: Creating Your Brand’s Video Plan

A mere few years ago, a video marketing plan might have entailed uploading a few videos to Instagram and Facebook and calling it a day.

If this still sounds like your current video strategy (or worse, sounds better than your current strategy), you could be missing out on valuable search real estate and inbound traffic. Fear not, we’ve got you covered. In this post, we’ll explain the dynamic relationsh...

The Financial Drain of Misinformation

According to a 2019 conducted by University of Baltimore Economics Professor Roberto Cavazos, the spread of false and misleading messages online costs the global economy an estimated $78 billion each year. The bulk of this loss comes from stock market volatility stemming from financial disinformation campaigns, but the widespread proliferation of misinformation has also forced companies and organizations to increase spending on reputation management, brand safety, employee health and wellness,...

Ellen Pao: Meritocracy in the tech industry is a myth

By Michelle Toh | CNN Business The “biggest myth” about working in the tech industry is that it’s based on a meritocracy. So says Ellen Pao, the former Reddit CEO and venture capitalist, who is urging companies to take another look at how inclusive their workplaces really are as communities around the world grapple with a rise in anti-Asian hate.

A 4,000-Year-Old Student ‘Writing Board’ from Ancient Egypt (with Teacher’s Corrections in Red)

Americans raised on Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House books tend to associate slates with one room schoolhouses and rote exercises involving reading, writing and ‘rithmetic. Had we been reared along the banks of the Nile, would our minds go to ancient gessoed boards like the 4000-year-old Middle Kingdom example above? Like our familiar tablet-sized blackboards, this paper — or should we say papyrus? — saver was designed to be used again and again, with whitewash serving as a form of eraser. ...

Reddit-Fueled Penny Stock's 6,400% Rally Reversing In Sydney

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Bloomberg: IOUpay, a fintech firm that went into overdrive on a social media-backed retail trading frenzy, has plummeted in the past two months.
