Retweeted by Caroline McCarthy@harmancipants Very true. The last time the neighbors' cat came to the window to say hi, Caterpillar freaked and got caught in the blinds.@harmancipants That's like Caterpillar's leash incident, and Caterpillar's bathtime incident, and Caterpillar's hair dryer incidentI have a rule that I never compare real-life situations to "Sex and the City" unless it's the Timothy Olyphant episode.I think that was @harmancipants' cat participating in such a grueling service to society. Hats off to Riff Raff.Amazing -> What happens when you try to take a cat around New York City as an accessory.

Caterpillar and I send him our best wishes and all the ear scratches.@mmeeker Thanks! Say hi to Hugo for me, I keep seeing his picture on an ad near my office :)@caro I mean you could have stop after "everyone should just listen to @joemarchese" but if you want to be overly specific, fine, i guess.
Retweeted by Caroline McCarthy“My Wife Is Telling Me To Have Drinks With Other Women” by @jasonp https://t.co/xO85V3VZaA <--- great read@mkytoski why, thank you! Happy Friday!@andrewparker I think they would have, but most users wouldn't have realized it & would have snubbed the idea of paying for anything at all!@andrewparker I guess - but then the companies in question did a total 180 and decided to not release them (and make the prod better) at all@dherman76 @joemarchese @seanbohan most definitely. Come by our office some time! We have a kegerator!@ijustine @garyvee Now I'm having dystopian visions of a social network that raises tons of money by making people bid on usernames upfront12/OK now I'm done ranting about what people will pay for and what they won't. My coffee's ready. Good morning, everyone!@fields Very true. Affiliate links seem to work where there is a major e-commerce component to it (e.g. fashion blogs, Pinterest).11/I don't see either of those things fitting into Ello well. And I reiterate: People will not pay for basic social networking.@ijustine Now THAT is a business model.10/Or professional services that presumably help people get their jobs done, like increased photo storage for photographers a la Flickr Pro.9/Either premium content - that's a bad industry buzzphrase, but it serves its purpose - high-quality music, video, games, entertainment8/So, basically, if Ello is both sticking to its no-ads pledge and it's not duping investors, it will need to steer toward one of 2 things:7/A lot of this was never reported, never went live. Most of what went live didn't last; what's still around is tiny in terms of revenue.6/Back in my reporter days, a lot of mainstream- or almost-mainstream social services were whispering about paid feature models.5/The second instance is where there's a professional benefit involved, e.g. increased high-res photo storage, and ad-free is afterthought4/On that note, everyone should listen to @joemarchese if they want to hear about what people are willing to do to avoid ads3/There are two things people will reliably pay for on the internet to get rid of ads: one is premium content (e.g. Spotify Premium)2/The problem is that every sign on the internet ever points to mainstream consumers being totally unwilling to pay for social networking.1/Re: Ello: If they have an anti-ad pledge but they raised venture capital, presumably they've presented a plan for paid features.
Joralemon St swarming with fire trucks but no obvious panic. OK #brooklynheights, whose tacky light-up Halloween display caught on fire?Ugh.
