    Bessemer Venture Partners Byron Deeter on success in SaaS

    Efficient growth has always been rewarded by the market, but as cash becomes more constricted, particularly at the late stage, this efficiency will become more and more important. Read More

    The new face of data leaks is fuzzy

    I dare say that nobody wants to be the target of malicious hackers, and certainly doesn’t want private data out there in the hands of unknown third parties. As individuals, we keep secret our most personal information — bank accounts, passwords and medical information — because we know it can be used against us. We trust organizations to keep this and other personally… Read More

    Torturing the ghost

    So we probably have our Satoshi. The Economist, GQ, and the BBC have all posted semi-breathless stories on their personal interactions with Craig Steven Wright, an Australian computer scientist and inventor. Dr. Wright was unmasked last year by Wired and Gizmodo who pointed to leaked emails and keys. Read More

    How Android gets to 100% market share

    Android commands more than 80 percent of the mobile OS market share globally, and just less than 60 percent in the U.S. But you wouldn’t know it here in Silicon Valley — almost everyone I know has an iPhone. As the consumer technology landscape evolves over the next five years, however, there are a number of reasons to believe that Android, and the Google stack more broadly, could… Read More

  • Strengthening authentication through big data Crunch Network

    Strengthening authentication through big data

    The fact that plain passwords are no longer safe to protect our digital identities is no secret. For years, the use of two-factor authentication (2FA) and multi-factor authentication (MFA) as a means to ensure online account security and prevent fraud has been a hot topic of discussion. Technological advances, especially in the mobile industry, have created new possibilities, and manufacturers… Read More

    The tech elite are moving left this election cycle

    This election cycle, the tech elite are almost exclusively backing liberals: Tesla’s Elon Musk donated to Hillary Clinton, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg gave handsomely to the San Francisco Democratic Party organization, and Microsoft’s Bill Gates gave to three Democratic congressmen. Though often seen as a libertarian stronghold, no household Silicon Valley names publicly… Read More

    Here’s why we only did three deals last year

    There has been a huge disconnect between private and public company valuations over the last few years. This isn’t the first time I’ve said it. It probably won’t be the last. During this period of froth, companies were able to raise capital at increasingly ludicrous valuations, and entrepreneurs turned fundraising into a sport. Deals closed peaked in 2014, but all-time… Read More

    Homo Sapiens 2.0? We need a species-wide conversation about the future of human genetic enhancement

    After 4 billion years of evolution by one set of rules, our species is about to begin evolving by another. Overlapping and mutually reinforcing revolutions in genetics, information technology, artificial intelligence, big data analytics, and other fields are providing the tools that will make it possible to genetically alter our future offspring should we choose to do so. For some very… Read More

    Why image recognition is about to transform business

    From programs that help the visually impaired and safety features in cars that detect large animals to auto-organizing untagged photo collections and extracting business insights from socially shared pictures, the benefits of image recognition, or computer vision, are only just beginning to make their way into the world — but they’re doing so with increasing frequency and depth.
