A new search site is in beta called DeepDyve that has some promise. First, they claim that they index millions of medical papers from paid journals and free sites. The problem in the past is that this content wasn’t too readily available. Yes, there is Medline, but not a very user-friendly tool. Second, getting copies of the papers to read has never been easy, particularly for those of us in the lay community that don’t have medical center accounts or access to medical libraries. This is where DeepDyve comes in. They charge a buck to rent the paper for 24 hours. You can get other “plans” that allow unlimited access for more money. Does this sound familiar, like renting movies? Got it. Their search engine is very simplistic — you can’t sort by date for example. But you can enter an entire abstract into the search query to narrow things down. ... (more)

Fernando Bermejo on Measuring Advertising

Fernando Bermejo is giving a Berkman lunchtime talk titled “Mapping Online Advertising: From Anxiety to Method.” He says that people sometimes hear that he researches advertising and assume t)hat he works for advertisers and wants to improve advertising. In fact, his interests are scholarly. He’s going to talk about the dynamics and logic of online advertising. (The subtitle of his talk is a reference to Devereaux.) NOTE: Live-blogging. Getting things wrong. Missing points. Omitting key information. Introducing artificial choppiness. Over-emphasizing small matters. Paraphrasing badly. Not running a spellpchecker. Mangling other people’s ideas and words. You are warned, people. He begins with the John Wanamaker (1838-1922) quote: “Half of the money I spend on advertising is wastsed. The trougle is, I don’t know which half.”: It’s the most repeated sentence in adverti... (more)

Now just about anyone in digital signage making an announcement that somehow tied in to the iPad would be regarded with giggles, but Nanonation is one of only a few companies in the space that actually have some genuine Apple ties, history and chops, so to speak. In the hours after the celebrated tablet was announced, Nanonation issued a release saying its propellerheads were all over this thing. Software developer Nanonation announced plans to support and develop new customer-facing applica... (more)
