In this post, we explore how Flipboard ended up as a loser in the digital content aggregators space.

When Apple launched its first tablet in 2010, the founders of Flipboard immediately saw an opportunityto create a central hub for magazines, digitally. Flipboard’s beautiful design, reminiscent of high-end magazines, and intuitive navigation led to rapid user growth: Flipboard was in Apple App Store’s top 100 apps for 18+ months straight. Apple lauded Flipboard as the best iPad app of 2010 [1]. Top names in tech including KPCB, Dustin Moskovitz, Ashton Kutcher, Jack Dorsey, etc. funneled $210M into the company, at an $800M valuation [2]. Flipboard had huge momentum and appeared to have a bright future ahead.

Fast forward to today: ways to consume digital content are almost as abundant as amount of content available, and Flipboard is just another player in a sea of offerings. For example, Apple News for iOS and Google News , are just twoof countless competitors also aggregatinghigh-quality content from numerous publishers…

Value Creation

End users: value created for end users was clear from the very beginning — a central placeto digest all your favorite content, regardless ofdevice (desktop/mobile/tablet app). This app replaced your old RSS feed.When a user signs up, the user tells Flipboard about his/her interests by selecting “favorite categories” such as travel, food, sports, politics, etc. Flipboard then aggregates articles based on those stated preferences and presents content in a visually appealing way. The user can flip through different news articles in the app, as well as create folders to save articles, a feature that increases user stickiness as the user builds a repository inside Flipboard.

IMO, Flipboard’s app still has the most visually appealing design vs. competitors. The app does a superb job of balancing visuals with headlines and content preview. User interface is simple, clean, and intuitive. Users are never overwhelmed by too much text, tabs, or information, as seen in the first screenshot below. In comparison, Google News (middle screenshot) and Apple News (right screenshot) look cluttered:

The product does a good job of re-engaging users via relevant and well-timed push notifications (mornings on weekdays, before users head to work; afternoons on weekends, post brunch). Users are given the option to customize types of push notifications they receive so that app does not burn this important channel:

From my observation, Flipboard appears to have the most publishing/content creator partnerships, hence the broadest content base. There are articles on Flipboard that other apps don’t have, but not vice versa. For example, Google News only covers more traditional news topics: World, US, Business, Technology, Entertainment, Sports, Science, and Health, so as a user, I’d have to supplement Google News with other sources for additional reading.


An old-fashioned use of quotation marks is around the titles of books and other major works. This ceased to be the convention many years ago, and has a lot to do with changing technology. Using quotation marks made sense when manual typewriters were all we had to work with. Then, when electric typewriters came in, people started underlining titles. When word processors were invented, italics became the convention.

However, quotation marks are still used for short works: poems, essays, songs, and magazine and journal articles.

So it’s correct to refer to the article ‘Marketing Myopia’, but when you refer to the venerable publication in which it appears, you should write The Harvard Business Review .

Irony, oddities and emphasis

Quotation marks are often used to indicate sarcasm or irony.

‘Oh, so you think your singles look “elegant”, do you?’

Think carefully before using quotation marks like this. Less is more when it comes to irony or sarcasm. The more you do this, the less power the practice has, and you can also sound just plain nasty.

Quotation marks can also be used to introduce an unusual, unfamiliar, or recently coined term, but should be dropped for subsequent references.

Quotation marks that indicate irony or sarcasm are often referred to as ‘scare quotes’. You should take care, however, to use scare quotes sparingly.

You may be tempted to use quotation marks around colloquial and slang terms. This practice is recommended in a formal document, but if you’re writing in a conversational, informal style, it’s not necessary.

I asked my editor about the ‘low-down’ on quotation marks.

A final use for quotation marks is to distinguish or emphasise a particular word, although the same effect can also be achieved using italics.

The word ‘nerd’ has recently become a term of endearment, especially when it’s attached to the word ‘grammar’.

I you’re still confused, the best advice I can give is to stick to your guns. Quotation marks make editors sweat more blood and tears than any other punctuation mark, but as long as you employ logic and consistency, you can’t be accused of being wrong, only of having a different opinion.

This concludes the fifth and final blog in our ‘ Punctuation 101 ’ series, and I hope this information and the tips in the earlier grammar posts have been helpful. However, if you find yourself staring at a blinking cursor, still terrorised by the dots and squiggles that exert so much power over your prose, don’t panic – just hire an editor!

In April 1856 Pelham wrote to the Commissioner of the General Land office in Washington D.C. and requested a $1,000 appropriation to construct a stone vault for the safekeeping of the land records he had acquired. Pelham explained that all buildings in Santa Fe were constructed of "sundried bricks," which could be easily breached by anyone determined to do so. [14]

Pelham's concerns for the security of the documents had been expressed before by public officials in Santa Fe. Governor James S. Calhoun had earlier suggested to the Territorial Legislature that if they could not provide funds for a safe repository for New Mexico's archives, they should at least consider hiring a night watchman to prevent break-ins. [15]

In May 1856 Pelham once again wrote to the commissioner to inform him that several buildings in Santa Fe had been broken into during the past month and to repeat the urgency of his request for funds to construct a vault. Guess Women Magy Dress Boots ZdDFgY
Four months later, Pelham was still trying to justify his original request. In response to questions from Washington, he argued that it was not feasible to purchase an iron safe large enough to hold the documents. Such an item could be found only "in the states," he noted, and it would have to be shipped to New Mexico at a cost more than twice the amount of his original request. He also noted that it would not be practical to locate them elsewhere in the territory.

Pelham also advised his superiors in Washington that roofs in New Mexico tended to leak under the best of conditions, and the documents that had been placed under his care were in danger of becoming wet every time it rained. He further emphasized that the documents which he had been assigned to safeguard were irreplaceable, and that any loss would be considered "very great." [17]

Despite his efforts Pelham never got his stone vault. His actions, however, demonstrate a genuine concern for the safety and security of the records placed under his care. It may be said that although the survival of New Mexico's archives often can be attributed to interventions of “divine favor,” credit for the survival of the land grant records also can be attributed to timely intervention by the federal government.

In this manner a portion of New Mexico's Spanish and Mexican archives were removed from the custody of territorial officials. The land records Pelham withdrew from the Palace of the Governors remained in federal custody for more than a hundred years. They did, however, remain in New Mexico.

Throughout the remainder of the nineteenth century various officials expressed their concerns about the historical documents which remained in territorial offices at the Palace. During the mid-1850s responsibility for these archives fell to the territorial librarian whose primary duty was to maintain the Law Library. Annie Womens Sherry Black Velvet Loafer 10 M B HGU3dG
Men who held this position continually commented on the lack of facilities and the primitive conditions under which they operated. In 1867, incumbent Librarian José María Alarid complained that his predecessor had refused to provide him a current inventory of the books in the library and that he had found all the books simply piled on the dirt floor of the library in no discernible order.

Alarid's report had a familiar ring to it, since his own predecessor had complained of these same problems two years earlier. [20]

Meaghan J. Brown writes: “A major clearinghouse for early modern theatrical information has recently found a new home at the Folger Shakespeare Library. Edited byRoslyn Knutson,David McInnis, and Matthew Steggle, the Lost Plays Database is an open-access forumfor information about lost plays from England that were originally written and performed between 1570 and 1642. The previous version was hosted by the University of Melbourne, and the Folger has updated the layout and design.”

Travis McDade writes: “ is an excellent movie. It is also a load of hooey —beginning with writer/director Bart Layton’s assurance that his film is not on a true story but rather a true story. In fact, it is a creative, thoughtful, mostly accurate, and interesting film—but it leaves out the best part of the whole episode. The fact is these were good kids —and they were the stupidest thieves in the history of rare book crime.”

Alex Falck writes: “Since its debut in San Francisco in 2015, Drag Queen Story Hour has become a popular event in libraries across the country. Although the queens set aside their usual bawdy performances for tamer, kid-friendly fare, their costumes and makeup are as over-the-top as ever, and kids love it (although not all adults are on board). I spoke to three drag queens who lead storytimes at locations around Chicago about their perspectives on the program.”
