  • 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.
