Should I Send This E-mail? [infographic]

Another work day, another 100+ e-mails to read. Actually, I have my filters set up to lower that number to about 10 e-mails per day. But the point is, you’re tired of getting countless e-mails that are simply distractions from your life goals. Today’s infographic is going to hopefully prevent you from looking like a fool by determining which e-mails are appropriate to send.

I couldn’t agree more with this infographic, especially with regards to e-mails about cats. Not only am I allergic to cats, I really don’t care about cute pictures you found by typing ‘funny cats’ into Google images. If you think you are good at finding really cool internet sites, just add me on StumbleUpon and send them there.

According to the infographic, losing your job over sending e-mails is a common occurrence. Hopefully these bosses at least confronted the spammer and gave them a second chance before cutting them loose… regardless be careful of what you send. My advice is to think about the receiver and whether they will consider the e-mail important; perspective is a powerful tool. [Via]

Rock of Ages: Evolution of SXSW [infogrpahic]

The SXSW season is upon us. For college kids, it is the season of RSVP-ing to every free event possible hoping for free beer. It is the season of lines, shows and drunken-ness. For the marketers, creatives, software-ers, financers, it is the season of interactive talks, networking and key note speakers. What a difference a few years and a real job makes.

This infographic follows the progression of SXSW, which started as a music festival in 1987 to “interactive launch pad” in it’s modern prime. It currently attracts a bit of an older crowd, with 40% being between ages 31-40 and 57% earning over $85,000/yr. While this seems strange to me, with all of my youngester friends posting photos and statuses about all things southby, it is important to remember that they/I attend UNofficial events. The interactive portion of the festival attracts marketing companies, non profits, start-ups and venture capitalists, web developers, media companies etc. Companies choose to launch new ideas and products for the “wired,” intelligent audience, intersection of music, film and technology at the festival, and the wide array of disciplines included in the conference.

I am more than happy to be prancing around the unofficial, free parties with my pals, but I hope to one day be able to attend and contribute to the interactive portion of sxsw. It is an innovative environment of creative professionals, and a great addition to the festival’s unique environment. [Via]

Humans vs. Animals [infographic]

Humans are the most unique animals on the planet. Because of our ability to effectively communicate, opposable thumbs, and other traits; Humans have the upper hand over any other species on earth. However, some animals have some of the same traits as humans, making them truly unique among their own.

According to today’s infographic, there are human traits found in many other species as well. For example, like humans, elephants show empathy towards other elephants that are not well. Also like humans, ravens are capable of developing tools to immobilize and crack eggs to eat.

However, no other species can compare to a human’s ability to run long distances. Our two legs allow us to run long distances without excreting large amounts of energy. Humans are truly amazing unique animals, and our abilities to continue expand our span of thought show that we are capable of many more great things. I can’t imagine where the human race will be 30 years from now, but I can assure you that it will be an amazing life as we experience it. [via]

A Very (P)interesting [infographic]

Pinterest has blown up this year, and sorry guys – its not for you. With women dominating the populous at almost 70% of registered users the content is mostly made up of clothes, food and motivational typography. For now Pinterest is growing extremely fast without much help from the male demographic and maybe they won’t need guns and videogames for a while. And why would they need men? Women have always dominated the social media market where over 84% of popular social media sites have a majority female ratio. Facebook has always had more active female users than male and when Google+ launched, the girls seemed to stay away. Now Google’s attempt at Facebook is almost all forgotten. I think the ladies know a thing or two about technology.

Unfortunately, Pinterest isn’t all fun and games. There is also a potential for a hostile litigious battle ground. The ability to ‘pin’ anyone’s content without consent brings a wave of millions of copyright infringements. With Pinterest executives conscious of this risk they make sure they are not liable stating in their terms of service: “The entire risk… remains with you.”

Pinterest is a wonderful concept and one that could rival the leading social media websites of today, but they need to focus on securing a more reasonable terms of service. [Via]
