This seems to validate Socialize's ad network strategy. http://www.clickz.com/clickz/news/2240315/mma-forum-urban-airship-cmo-throws-support-behind-apple-passbook "Urban Airship recently started to heavily invest in Passbook. The firm bought marketing firm Tello last year. Tello is the creator of a platform called PassTools that allows companies to create a Passbook pass without having to write code.
The company's chief marketing officer believes that Passbook can rejuvenate the coupon marketing strategy. In his presentation he called out coupons as one of the least effective forms of marketing. He based that belief on the manual nature of coupons."
One of my colleagues at work just asked:
BUT there is an alternative -- a great hack that my wife (who used to be a mobile product manager) showed me awhile back.
The iPhone has a (very hidden) "shortcuts" menu. Here's how to find it:

After reading most posts on this Blog I felt like contributing too as I liked the quality and the insights we get here.
As a fellow Entrepreneur, I'm reaching you to tell you a story is about giving "The power to the People", with a bold approach:
A Startup called Blacklist
Blacklist empowers consumers to react and impact by Blacklisting brands & products they dislike or had a bad experience with.
As the director of innovation for metal fastening in our automotive businesses I am interested in networking to get some contacts for a factory tour regarding assembly methodology. Any leads would be appreciated
Been out of the mobile loop for a very long time - still using a flip phone! Anyway what carrier is the best for getting Unlimited 4G data on a laptop (if there is such a thing)? I am looking at Sprint as they have Unlimited Data and maybe there's a way to tweak that into a laptop connection (as that plan only has 5GB of Mobile Hotspot). Are there any other options besides the big carriers? I took a look at Republic Wireless but it seems like a gamble given the high base prices of the phones. Thanks!
If I directed you to this post, it's probably because you referred to me as "Dan" rather than "DROdio". (Don't feel bad about it, it happens all the time -- that's why I made a blog post about it. Lots of people still call me "Daniel" as well -- especially people who have known me a long time-- which is fine, too).
Here's why I prefer DROdio: My full name is "Daniel (pronounced "dahn-yelle") Rubén Odio." I'm a first-generation American; my father came to the US from Costa Rica when he was in his 20s. I've lived in both Spanish and English speaking countries, and not only do I speak Spanish with my kids, but we've also named them with the same initials. So we're a tribe of "DROdios."
My initials, "DROdio" let me share my cultural background as a part of my name, and make me think of my kids each time I hear my name, which is one of those little things in life that's unexpectedly enjoyable.
PS while you're here, you might enjoy checking out some of my other blogs:

I'm thinking about hosting a under 25 freelancer meetup in San Francisco, would anyone be interested or know anyone that might be interested?
I want it to be structured so that everyone who attends will be discussing in depth about their freelancing and actually engage in conversations to help eachother and talk about their freelancing experiences.
Earlier this year, I attended an Accenture event for Silicon Valley founders discussing social within the enterprise. I just realized I hadn't posted my video of the event.
Here's the transcript: Kelly Demspki, partner at Accenture, talks about social within the Fortune 2000
Speaker 1: To put this a little bit in context, if you think about Accenture and our clients, most of you probably know, we’re a global company. We have clients in about 120 countries. We’re about $25.5 billion in revenue. We essentially work in management consulting, which is my area, technology services and outsourcing as well as business process outsourcing. So our clients are essentially the Forbes Global 2000, plus about another thousand very large enterprises and government agencies and organizations. So that’s the context if you think about the kinds of issues we think are relevant to those kinds of organizations.
My name is Mercedes and I am from Argentina. I haven been struggling with launching my app since is for spanish speaking users from all over the world. I was wondering if you have ideas of how to find a co-founder who speaks spanish and how to raise money while you still have a job. Thank you so much and I really admire your work!
