Bruce Heavin - The Thinkable: Be the best box you can be

The concept of thinking outside of the box almost always fails. This is because you are pushing yourself beyond your own limits of experience to pull from. You need to learn to load the dice and stack the deck. Build your own experiences to have the well to draw from in the form of a better box.

Chrome Mobile: The Mobile Web Developers Toolkit (Part 1)

Building for mobile web requires a different mindset than desktop web development, and a different set of tools. The tools we're used to using often aren't available or would take up too much screen real estate. And going back to the dark ages of tweak/save/deploy/test/repeat isn't exactly optimal, so what can we do? Thankfully there are a number of great options - from remote debugging to emulation, mobile browsers are offering more and more tools to make our lives easier. We'll take a look at a couple of tools that you can use today to make cross platform mobile web development easier and then peer into the crystal ball to see what tools may bring in the future. Join us for Part 1 - as we take a look at a few boiler plates, frameworks and helpful libraries for building the mobile web.

rio careff vevo

New York investor Fred Wilson recently noted that some consumer internet companies are struggling to master mobile behavior:

Distribution is much harder on mobile than web and we see a lot of mobile first startups getting stuck in the transition from successful product to large user base. strong product market fit is no longer enough to get to a large user base. You need to master the "download app, use app, keep using app, put it on your home screen" flow and that is a hard one to master.

At our IGNITION conference, Vevo CEO Rio Caraeff revealed how his company tries to master the "keep using app" part of Wilson's equation.

Vevo, which is a music video startup, has 20 million app downloads, and 6 million monthly users. To get people coming back to the app, Caraeff says you have to send them alerts. 

As soon as someone opens the app for the first time, Vevo asks, "can we send you alerts?" The user doesn't even choose what kind of alerts to get. (For instance, you don't have to check boxes for "Lady Gaga" alerts.) The idea is to eliminate another step that would stop the user from asking for alerts.

As they get alerts, the hope is to get them coming back to the app over and over again.

Obviously, it takes more than just alerts though. Vevo has just 6 million monthly users. That means 14 million people aren't using the app after they download it. You also need an addictive, indispensable app. But, alerts are still an important part of the equation.
