AWSI Musings: It’s Pinsperational Not Social…

We introduced the “SNapkin” concept in this post. Here’s another to peruse and ponder.  Enjoy!—The Gang



We enjoyed reading this piece about Ben Silbermann in the Weekend Wall Street Journal.

He re-iterated the purpose of Pinterest. It tends to get lumped under the category of “social media,” but we feel that maybe that’s way too broad. There’s social “pass it on” media where you share information and items of interest. Then there’s social “inspirational” media, which is kind of a public facing scrapbook. The thought process is — what inspires me COULD inspire you. Or maybe, somewhere in the world there’s someone who either has similar interests or is inspired by something I discovered. That’s cool too.

AWSI, if you can incorporate the inspirational Pinterest into your DragonBustR 20, that would be a great thing. Personally, we like going offline for the 20, because there are too many distractions online. But the beauty of Pinterest is that what you found inspiring isn’t lost. You can get to it from any device as long as you can get “online.” It’s all good!

Here’s a snapshot of what our Annie finds inspirational. Also, since we don’t have our own Pinterest, she’s representing us.


And The Enchanted Jukebox Sez…

Let’s stop time and enjoy this moment!

Per this Fortune piece:

Pinterest is a “catalog of ideas.

Pinterest chief executive Ben Silbermann told attendees at the Fortune Brainstorm Tech conference the following:

“I think that’s a very different thing than a social network.” The objectives of the two are different, he said. On a social network, you upload photos for other people to like. Pinterest, on the other hand, is self-serving. “Our hope is that when we show you the right idea you go out and do that thing,” he said. He likened Pinterest to “a catalog that’s hand-picked” for his users.
