    It’s Too Soon To Judge Satya Nadella

    It’s very early days for Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and for the company’s overhaul from a 1990s PC company to a service and cloud company.

    Got A Team Distributed All Over The World? Teleport’s Tool, Flock, Finds You A Meeting Hub

    The thesis behind Teleport, a new Andreessen Horowitz-backed startup from a group of early Skype alums, is that workers should be free to migrate to whichever city and country suits them best. They’ve been slowly building out a suite of tools that help digital workers figure out where they can maximize their take-home pay after accounting for costs like housing and… Read More

    Clear Deletes Dumb Tweets Before You Regret Them

    Most of us have embarrassing stories about things we’ve shared on social media, but it’s hard to top Ethan Czahor’s. He was hired as Jeb Bush’s chief technology officer, but shortly after he got the job, journalists uncovered some old offensive tweets and he had to resign.

    YC-Backed Rickshaw Provides An API For Local Deliveries

    Ever since Uber launched to enable users to hail a ride with a mobile app, any number of on-demand and same-day delivery services have emerged. In most cases, those companies end up building out their own logistics infrastructure and hiring their own delivery drivers.

    Bitcoin Vs. Wall Street: A Love-Hate Story

    For the first few years, there was no response from Wall Street. The Wall Street Journal didn’t mention bitcoin until a blog post in June 2011.

    Disney’s Lab Builds Buttons That Work By Manipulating Soundwaves Rather Than Electricity

    I’m a fan of Disney’s research labs. Meant largely to help Disney discover new ways to innovate in their parks and products, it’s a seemingly endless stream of crazy thinking.

It’s cool as heck… Read More
