"Go Butler": So will das deutsche Start-up in den USA überleben - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"Ich habe keine Ahnung, wie die je profitabel werden wollen" [...] Andere Concierge-Services haben sich vom Gute-Fee-Modell bereits verabschiedet: Der amerikanische Konkurrent Magic verlangt seit Kurzem die happige Gebühr von 100 Dollar für jede Stunde, die seine "Magicians" an der Wunscherfüllung arbeiten. [ 61 Minutes] Heute verdient das Unternehmen 70 bis 80 Prozent seines Umsatzes mit Firmenkunden. Eine Beratungsfirma etwa lässt "Sixtyone Minutes" ihre gehetzten Consultants von lästigem Alltagskram entlasten.

CEO Ambarish Mitra: independent Blippar may IPO - Business Insider
youtu.be/epMs3X8U9Ko?t=13m55s 'want's to take it all the way ... to IPO.' - Q: Is Virtual Search and Augmented Reality a feature on an existing (Search) Platform (with existing data and personal context - ie your past search history and relations (FB)) in the next 5 years or a public company? Could the extra friction of an app to launch, with the name ?blippar? be a friction point for traction!? - VS - native on iOS, Android camera app that gets into augmented reality mode when it sees a specific QR code. Time will tell. What past has show, to gain mass adoption it is about being immersive (whoa), creates emotional - chemical (dopamine) intangible value, and being sort of 'invisible' "Don't show me." and thus habit forming, // &! bit.ly/1N4a5oj

drinking water quality - Pregnancy-induced Hypertension “Probably linked” to PFOa Contamination
Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) is a long-chain perfluorinated chemical (LCPFC) that does not occur naturally in the environment.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfluorooctanoic_acid

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3279461/pdf/ehp.120-a59.pdf

PFOA can be released into the environment during the manufacture of products such as Teflon nonstick coating. The chemical is present in an estimated 98% of Americans, with average blood serum levels of 5.2 ng/mL reported in the 1999−2000 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. For people living in the 6 affected Ohio and West Virginia public water districts surrounding DuPont’s Washington Works plant, serum PFOA levels averaged 32.91 ng/ mL. PFOA had leached into groundwater and contaminated the Ohio River, tainting drinking water supplies.

animal studies have linked PFOA to tumor formation, neonatal death, impaired thyroid, and lipid abnormalities, few studies have evaluated human health effects.
