Love this interview - particularly the crisis management segment. You must be practically manic at a function like this with so many brilliant people everywhere you turn! How exciting!

Some trends we're seeing inside Mashable and some thoughts on the year ahead. What are your predictions for 2012?

Ads will push the bounds of privacy everything will be cross-referenced to the point where ads you see hinge on who you are. Because they know who you are. They will know what last piece to the puzzle is even if you don't give it to them since it's the only piece missing.

Very surreal night ... I was at the New York Stock Exchange for Business Insider's SAI 100 event when the TV screens started flashing news alerts of reports that Jobs had passed.

I immediately darted for the door to head back uptown to Mashable HQ, but we were locked in temporarily because of the Occupy Wall Street protests outside. The entire Business Insider crew -- including Henry Blodgett (BI's founder), who had just spoke to the whole crowd -- was huddled right by the door as well getting to work on their stories (they had the good sense to bring a few laptops and 3G cards to their own event, I gather).

Once I got out of NYSE, the scene was pretty chaotic -- streets were closed off and there were just seas of people blocking the entrance to the subway. But in that sea of people you could hear dozens of them -- including cops -- learning of the Jobs news (many of them, of course, via their iPhones) and sharing it with the people next to them.

In any event, by the time I got back to our office, we had about 10 of our people already on digesting and working through the very difficult news. It was one of those moments where our whole team comes from wherever they're at in the world to share and contribute (most of Mashable is based in NYC, so it was after hours), and a special thing to be a part of.

In any event, I'll certainly remember tonight for a long time. All of our coverage can be found at the link below. RIP Steve.

You're a funny one. So full of contradictions. First you say you're leaving me the last word bla bla bla, then step back when I hurt your little pride a bit. It's great you don't give a penny for your own word, don't worry, neither do I.
lol i love how you ignored the truth... :D
So now there's truth when, according to your theory, truth doesn't exist either. As it's a subjective qualification given to a statement by... tadadam, the brain. Do you see how you've tangled yourself in paradox?:) That's what happens when one doesn't actually know what he's talking about.
I proved you have denied your own arguments with your principal statement. You can't argument your statement because of the statement and the statement is pointless because of no argumentation. That's your paradox.
I repeat, don't be a sore loser. All you're doing is losing your face.

hello Adam , I have a problem now . I have seen the Nissan business page -- it is very beautiful. There are five dynamic images in Nissan Page. But I upload the dynamic image and the dynamic image didn't work. The photo keep static. Why? I check the type of photo . when I upload , the type is GIF, but I have done the page profile then its type changed to PNG . So could you do me a favor to solve this problem? Is it the reason that the Nissan Page is a verified page and mine is not??? Please help me!!!

This was a fun project to be involved with (I wrote the intro)! The NYC tech/startup scene has grown like crazy since I moved here two years ago.
The New York startup scene is capping off a robust 2011 with a look ahead to the new year in the form of a 2012 calendar, featuring 12 of the city's up and coming companies.
