    The Mayer-Sandberg Spectrum of Gender And Tech Politics

    Hello, readers. I was typing this to you from the back row of the Ellen Pao-Kleiner Perkins trial. (More on that later.) But isn’t it fascinating how wildly divergent the two leading women executives in tech are when it comes to thinking about gender in the industry?

    The Future Of Voice-Activated AI Sounds Awesome

    For decades science fiction movies have been imagining the future as one where humans talk to machines just as naturally as they speak to family and friends.

    WhatsApp Says It’s Not “Permanently” Banning Users From Its Service, Just Blocking Third-Party Clients

    Quite a few reports circling the web this week appear to indicate a tightening of WhatsApp’s policy toward the usage of third-party WhatsApp client applications.
