About

Welcome to the official blog for the 2007 Polaris Digital Media Summit!

(The blog’s author is Mike Hirshland, an Internet investor at Polaris, and a blogger over at VCMike.wordpress.com).

We have gathered a dozen Polaris digital media / Internet portfolio companies, a handful of Internet leaders/visionaries, and a handful of Polaris partners, for a two day roundtable session. Having some of the best minds in the business together around one table, the hope is to distill some some key insights and learnings on where the Internet is heading, as well as best practices for building early stage Internet or digital media ventures.

We’ll also try to have a bit of fun, which doesn’t look to hard here at the Stein Eriksen Lodge in Deer Valley, Utah.

Stay tuned, we’ll be providing updated posts throughout the event.

To read current, hour by hour posts on the conference, go to the “Home” tab.

The other tabs are (I hope) self-explanatory…

  1. Want to start your private office arms race right now?

    I just got my own USB rocket launcher 🙂 Awsome thing.

    Plug into your computer and you got a remote controlled office missile launcher with 360 degrees horizontal and 45 degree vertival rotation with a range of more than 6 meters – which gives you a coverage of 113 square meters round your workplace.
    You can get the gadget here: http://tinyurl.com/2qul3c

    Check out the video they have on the page.

  2. Two new studies show why some people are more attractive for members of the opposite sex than others.

    The University of Florida, Florida State University found that physically attractive people almost instantly attract the attention of the interlocutor, sobesednitsy with them, literally, it is difficult to make eye. This conclusion was reached by a series of psychological experiments, which were determined by the people who believe in sending the first seconds after the acquaintance. Here, a curious feature: single, unmarried experimental preferred to look at the guys, beauty opposite sex, and family, people most often by representatives of their sex.

    The authors believe that this feature developed a behavior as a result of the evolution: a man trying to find a decent pair to acquire offspring. If this is resolved, he wondered potential rivals. Detailed information about this magazine will be published Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

    In turn, a joint study of the Rockefeller University, Rockefeller University and Duke University, Duke University in North Carolina revealed that women are perceived differently by men smell. During experiments studied the perception of women one of the ingredients of male pheromone-androstenona smell, which is contained in urine or sweat.

    The results were startling: women are part of this repugnant odor, and the other part is very attractive, resembling the smell of vanilla, and the third group have not felt any smell. The authors argue that the reason is that the differences in the receptor responsible for the olfactory system, from different people are different.

    It has long been proven that mammals (including human) odor is one way of attracting the attention of representatives of the opposite sex. A detailed article about the journal Nature will publish.
