Steve Jobs' Business Card Circa 1979

Pascal Finette, who heads Mozilla Labs, recently got ahold of a vintage business card that allegedly belonged to Jobs in 1979.

According to the plain-looking card, Jobs was then the Vice President of New Product Development and his office was located on 10260 Bandley Drive in Cupertino, CA. You can check out the old digs, which are a part of Apple's current compound at 1 Infinite Loop, by visiting Google Maps.

Fifty Studio in some new digs!

Fifty Studio just said a sad farewell to downtown SLC and has squatted in a new office south about 15 minutes in Sandy, Utah.

While this doesn't change the great websites we create, it does mean we're located a little closer to the equator, which should be good for everyone involved.

Twitter User Statistics Revealed

During it's first-ever Chirp conference for developers, Twitter revealed some eye-opening statistics this week about the previously secret user base.

Twitter Stats

  • Twitter has 105,779,710 registered users
  • New users are signing up at the rate of 300,000 per day
  • 75% of Twitter traffic comes from outside Twitter.com (i.e. via third party applications like TweetDeck and HootSuite)
  • Twitter gets 3 billion API requests per day
  • Twitter's search engine gets 600 million search queries per day
  • Twitters are sending a total of roughly 55 million tweets per day
  • 37 percent of active Twitterers are using their mobile phone to tweet
  • Twitter has grown from 25 employees to 175 employees in the past year.

To put this in perspective, Twitter is second in search to Google and ahead of Yahoo! and Bing as a search engine. It has roughly the same "population" as Mexico and is adding more users every month than there are people living in New York City.
