What we’re seeing is an inflection point like we’ve seen at other digital businesses in the past: Stay true to your ideals, or follow the money? Airbnb, for instance, has at this point moved far away from its original vision of fostering personal connections through sharing homes and spare rooms.

A mid-April review of the well said “it is unlikely to be a successful cement job,” but BP declined to run a “cement bond log,” a day-long evaluation of the cement’s integrity. A crew that arrived expecting to perform the evaluation was sent home.
“The combination of antibiotic such as Cipro, plus a drug that blocked the activity of LF, could provide a complete cure, in principle,” Liddington said.
Revenue concerns led Redis Labs, which makes a popular open source database, to adopt a controversial new licensing scheme this year that limits how others can use its software, and that critics say deviates from open source principles.

But Etsy shares have stagnated well below the company’s IPO price, lingering in the single digits as part of a general downward trend. And it’s facing new competition from no less than Amazon, which vies not just for overall consumer dollars but recently launched its own online artisanal marketplace.
Software piracy is rampant and hampering economic growth, and it is increasingly in the hands of organized groups which are regarded as legitimate businesses in some countries.

MH: Most companies today are creating and using content to attract prospects and maneuver them into an active buying cycle. Because content so heavily impacts whether a company gets found and known online, having SEO audit tools built into the systems that marketers are using to create and publish the content (let’s look at MA and landing page creation or CMS and blog publishing) is an added benefit.
