Article worth reading about Aron D'Souza

In depth article about a hidden figure in the role that brought down a site that many put on par with TheDirty.com as sleezy and was made for the sole purpose to embarass, cyber bully, and to harass people. None the less it was a business that generated thousands of jobs all of which have now been destroyed by Nick Denton.

Ever Wonder Why LBS.

If you're like me and wonder why LBS = Pounds when Kilometers = KM and Kilograms = KG So why isn't Pounds = PD ?

This happens because LB is actually from the Latin word libra as in the astrological sign Libra which means balance or scales. Yes Sclaes as in what we step on to weigh ourselves in pounds or kilograms. An ancient Roman unit of measure Libra Pondo meant "a pound by weight". So the word pound in the English language was derived from the word "Pondo".

Another interesting note is the British Sterling Pound has a symbol of an L with a line through it.

So thats my fun fact and knowledge of the day.

Anyone Can Work Odd Jobs To Get Going

Infographic below showcases the different jobs Warren Buffett did as a child. From Selling Coca-cola and lemonade in front of his friends house because there was more traffic there than in front of his house to Peanuts he had no shame getting out there and hustling in his youth to get funding to start investing in stocks.

How Much Would Steve Jobs Be Worth Today if He Never Sold Any Apple Shares?

Apple's Current Market Capitalization as of today is $784.55 Billion dollars. The largest of any publicly traded company in the country. Steve Jobs was famous for taking a salary of $1.000 and living off of his bonus but theoretically if we were lucky enough to have him alive today and had he never sold any of his shares we could ask what would Steve Jobs Net Worth be?



Crunchbase was able to provide the ownership of common stock the day Apple went public. It shows Steven P. Jobs with a 15% share of the company and Stephen G. Wozniak with holdings of 7.9%.

So if we calculate 15% of $784.55 billion dollars we get: $117,682,5000.00 thats 117 Billion Dollars and thus would have made him the richest person in the world. Wozniak would also be 61 Billion.

While these figures are not truly realistic since both were diluted and sold shares but still fun and interesting to look at. Alternatively you could say that Bill Gates owned 49% of Microsoft when they went public and the current market cap is $573 Billion. So $286.5 Billion...

Sad Imzy is Shutting Down

A Reddit of sorts that wanted to only post positive an evergreen stories shows the dark side of only wanting to promote good things as the website Imzy recently sent out this email about their decision to close up shop after two years:

"We are sorry to say that after nearly two years of building Imzy, it is time for us to shut down the site. 
Some of you have been here since our launch into beta and some are brand new. We’ve loved getting to know all of you and seeing you build communities and make new friends. Unfortunately, we were not able to find our place in the market. We still feel that the internet deserves better and hope that we see more teams take on this challenge in the future.
Our final day of operation will be June 23rd. We want to give you time to gather any content you’ve made and exchange contact information with friends. If you have a new home for your community, I recommend creating a pinned post directing members there. 
You might be wondering what’s going to happen to your data now. Well, nothing. We have always valued your privacy and we will continue to do so. You can request your data here.
The /Imzy community will open to allow everyone to post. This seems like a good place for us to gather, share memories, and say our goodbyes. 
Thanks for spending your time with us. We’re really going to miss this place. 
-Dan"
