Indiegogo plan to bailout Greece. Get some ouzo! Get some wine!

The study showing chocolate and weight loss was an intentional scam to show how easy it is to get junk science to turn into an Internet meme....
“Slim by Chocolate!” the headlines blared. A team of German researchers had found that people on a low-carb diet lost weight 10 percent faster if they ate a chocolate bar every day. It made the front page of Bild, Europe’s largest daily newspaper, just beneath their update about the Germanwings crash. From there, it ricocheted around the internet and beyond, making news in more than 20 countries and half a dozen languages. It was discussed on tel...

Neat project out of MSR that guesses a person's age from a single photo. Surprisingly accurate, at least as good or better than I'd do on most photos.

The average Android app loses 77% of its DAUs within the first 3 days after the install. Within 30 days, it’s lost 90% of DAUs. Within 90 days, it’s over 95%.   Which is why of the >1.5 million apps in the Google Play store, only a few thousand sustain meaningful traffic…
Exclusive data on retention curves for mobile apps In a recent essay covering the Next Feature Fallacy, I explained why shipping “just one more feature” doesn’t fix your product. The root cause is that the average app has pretty bad retention metrics. Today, I’m excited to share some real numbers on mobile retention. I’ve worked with mobile …

This is about the 5th or 6th time, I've had a business idea, put together a rough plan, failed to do anything about it, and then someone else launched it 2-4 years later.  Further evidence that ideas really are cheap. It's all about execution.

Steven and Angie were super helpful working through a complex re-fi involving two couples. They assisted us in getting one of our credit ratings up so that we could secure a better interest rate, and Steven stepped in to keep to our interest rate from going up when the escrow company was late in delivering paperwork. The process took a while to complete, but we're all very satisfied with the result.
