  • Khan Academy has an open email policy for internship and job applications.
  • A venture capitalist is an individual (or firm) who invests money into start-ups and small companies which (seemingly) have the capacity for growth, but lack access to public funding.  Successful venture capitalists are rewarded handsomely as the small companies they initially invested in, become giants.
  • Instagram is a much more diverse and dense platform than I originally thought. The hashtags system and total photo library is incredibly vast.
  • There are several programs which help you produce watermarks which you can batch process. Visual Watermark is one of those programs. This is also doable in Photoshop.
  • The Kik platform is much more popular than I knew. I had thought Kik to be one of those more obscure messenger apps with a very small userbase.

Sources:

  • I headed over to the internships page on Khan Academy, and they don’t have a specific format for applications. Interests are encouraged to simply email.
  • I’ve heard of venture capitalists, but I never really knew exactly what they were. I ran a Google search for the definition.
  • I was off Instagram for about a year, because my DSLR photos were difficult to upload. Now I’ve finally put in the effort to figure out, and I’ve found that Instagram has really grown!
  • I was recently advised to watermark my photos because photo theft is rather common. I went about searching for methods to batch/mass process watermarks.
  • Getting into the Instagram scene exposed me to a lot of activity on Kik. I typically only used Facebook Messenger.

  • Viggle is a pretty awesome app which gives you points for watching TV, listening to music and watching adverts.
  • Slidejoy is an app which puts ads on your lock screen and pays you a uniform fee per ad view.
  • There are SD cards with WiFi built into them. They allow for transfer of files across devices on the same network without having to eject the SD card. I can’t see how this would helpful for anyone who doesn’t use a DSLR camera.
  • Blur magazine is a magazine which compiles a set of photos from public submission.
  • The term 4k video refers to 4000 vertical lines of pixels in an image.
  • There are massively active click-farms (in developing countries) out there which provide tons of likes on Facebook. Buying likes from click-farm sites is against Facebook’s policy, but it appears that when you choose to promote your posts on Facebook with Facebook’s promotion system, the likes come from the same places.

  • I heard about the Viggle app on a news program covering people who actually seemed to have made a significant amount of money working at home.
  • I heard about the Slidejoy app on a news program covering people who actually seemed to have made a significant amount of money working at home.
  • I was looking at Amazon deals on SD cards when I came across the new breed of WiFi enabled SD cards.
  • I was doing research on what a professional photographer really is and came across sites where amateurs and professionals submit photos.

  • I was doing research on 4k TV’s when I learned what they actually are. Many 4k TV’s won’t make a difference to your viewing experience simply because of how much information your eye can process.
  • This video titled Facebook Fraud is rather eye-opening.
