Pilgrim’s Picks for February 18
Today I get to fly to England for the third time in 6 weeks! It’s a grueling overnight flight, but worth it as I’ll get to see family and join some talented search marketers for SES London.
Before I pack my bags and head on out–don’t worry, I’ll still blog this week–here are some picks that caught my eye today.
- paidContent has summarized some interesting stuff from Google’s recent 10-K filing. Including increased employee numbers and confirmation that advertising still makes up 99% of its revenues. (via)
- Valleywag claims to have gotten its hands on screenshots for Yahoo buzz–a Digg-like clone it seems.
- A Google contractor is trying to sue Google for $25M for allegedly stealing an idea for Google Earth. Question is, if you were a contractor for Google, and posted the idea to an internal Google email group, doesn’t that idea belong to Google now? I guess the courts will decide.
- And lastly, YouNoodle.com claims to have created a technology that will help VCs predict if a start-up will be successful or not. That said, they’re too scared to test it on their own start-up’s worth–there’s confidence for you.
