Here are some of the past week's highlights from DigitalDisruption.com, Acquia's portal for examining the impact of digital disruption.
Google+ 2013 User Videos
If you are a regular user and frequent photo/video uploader on Google Plus, then chances are you received a little present for the holiday. The Google Auto Awesome system has built compilation videos from selected photos in each user's stream. Glass explorer Don Schwartz's just happened to be mostly #throughglass or of Glass and include many first time sightings of Glass and a number of his family and friends.
Gopinion brings real-time feedback to businesses
In November I met Chris Muto at TechCrunch's Boston Pitch-Off, co-founder and CTO of Gopinion, a mobile app startup that seeks to help customers give their favorite businesses real-time feedback. What's really interesting about Gopinion is that it combines incentivizing and personalizing the business feedback experience. Surveys can be grueling and some even have upwards of 50 questions. Gopinion aims to encourage customers to share their thoughts in a smaller, more personalized survey and help businesses better understand how to improve their services and products all while rewarding the users for their feedback through local deals and offerings.
A few other notable stories include: Apple hiring the New York Times Magazine's lead designer, Google And Audi To Announce an Infotainment Partnership and How Uber Conquered the World in 2013.
