Kirb

http://www.kirb.com/

I loved this – someone I did business with during the week sent me ‘kudos’, positive feedback via this site (Kirb.com) and I felt it was such a cool thing to receive. I chose to publish their testimonial for my business. Simple to do. But I could have kept it a private posting too. I want to send kudos to others from now on because it created a brilliant ‘thank you’ at the close of a deal and I imagine for anything else in life.

Anyway, it’s positive, well developed – this could get big and I felt it’s a site that Stumblers would particularly love to use in their private life or at work to congratulate good businesses for the little things they do, or the big things. I think it would be a great way eventually to find the best companies to buy certain things from etc.

From the site:

“Who deserves your Kudos? Showcase the people, groups and businesses that amaze you ~ they’ll love you for it.

Another thing that surprised me was to find it’s only been operating a few weeks and the fellow I did business with was one of the owner/devs, Andy.

This isn’t a paid plug and I genuinely think a lot of people I know online will really want to use this – or more to the point, would love to have someone send them kudos for something they did well.

It reminded me of how I felt when I first used StumbleUpon.com – a very positive web site that changes something about how people think about what the ‘Web’ is for – and I’m told new features are coming.

How I Ran an Ad on Fox News | Arts and Life | SlateV

http://www.slatev.com/video/how-i-ran-ad-fox-news/

You can now advertise on TV via a similar interface to Adsense in Google.

This video shows how SlateV made a 30 second video, logged in to their Google account and booked the ad to run on various cable TV shows. They got about 1.3million views, and about 1000 visits to the special test website URL for a budget of $1,300.

They wanted to target conspiracy theory folk, so ran the ad primarily on Glen Beck re-runs.

Is the Goog going to also own TV advertising soon? This is an attractive proposition IMO.

Major benefit may be charting various publicly reported data. I hope this site gets a few more enthusiastic users to help build what is looming as a great financial/business educational tool.
