Etsy has closed $40 million of funding from a roster of investors who have been believers in Etsy for a long time 다운로드. I couldn’t be happier to have such a committed set of partners who “get it” along for the next stage.
What do we plan to do with the money we’ve raised 리얼 플레이어 유튜브? Two simple things, really: we plan to grow Etsy into an economic force all around the world and we want to provide more products and services to help sellers succeed and build their businesses on the Etsy platform ps4 스파이더맨. You’ve seen a start in some of these areas — our Etsy in German and French launches…
Looking back, Etsy was quite small by today’s measures — the community sold $7.93 million of goods in September 2008 영화 레플리카 다운로드. We had about 50 employees and we were in an office in downtown Brooklyn with a broken elevator that famously had a sign that read, “You gotta press up to go down.”
Almost four years later, many things have changed 다운로드. We have different offices near the Brooklyn Bridge, a working elevator, almost 300 employees, and last month alone, the community sold about $65 million in goods 공무원 이력서. Each month, 40 million people around the world visit Etsy, with 15 million registered members and 875,000 sellers generating those sales in 150 countries 플래시 플레이어 디버거 다운로드.
(2011 sales – $525 million)
We believe, more than ever, that Etsy can help fundamentally change the way the world works by making it possible for individuals to make and sell things to other people around the globe — a people-powered economy 다운로드.
…we published last fall provides an inspiring blueprint for the better world that we envision:
Decades of an unyielding focus on economic growth and a corporate mentality has left us ever more disconnected with nature, our communities, and the people and processes behind the objects in our lives 다운로드. We think this is unethical, unsustainable, and unfun. However, with the rise of small businesses around the world we feel hope and see real opportunities: Opportunities for us to measure success in new ways… to build local, living economies, and most importantly, to help create a more permanent future 마틸다 자막.

I’m such a huge fan of podcasts that it’s insane. See I have this eye problem that prevents me from reading too much. My day job is in technology and my hobby is writing so I have no ‘good eyes’ left for everything else 다운로드.
That’s where podcasts come in. I can listen to them while walking, cleaning, and building (my three other hobbies). It’s such a perfect blend that I want to share with you my favorites:
- This Week in Tech
- Slate Political Gabfest
- Bloomberg Presents Lewis Lapham
- History of Rome
- Melvyn Bragg – In Our Time
- The Economist (all of the shows)
- APM: Marketplace Morning Report
The interesting thing about these shows are that none of them are from traditional TV/Radio 2019년 달력 한글 다운로드. Half of them are writers of print media talking about their work. An interesting trend I expect to scare the beejeesus out of Hollywood.
Here are my second tier shows that I still listen to vehemently:
- Slate Cultural Gabfest
- Slate Hang Up And Listen
- Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History
- Tech News Today
- Buzz Out Loud
- TED Talks
- NBC Meet The Press
- APM: Marketplace
- APM: The Splendid Table
Sorry for the lack of links but you can Google (or iTunes search) these titles and I guarantee you will find them 다운로드.
Do you listen to any of these?
