    Gillmor Gang: Summertime Blues

    The Gillmor Gang — Dan Farber, Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor. This one seems more like an AA meeting for Apple addiction, as the Gang stumbles around pretending to be interested in Twitter tinkering with the Favorites model while just killing time until September 9. The reason we’re in reasonable humor is that we know we’re in for… Read More

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, Dan Farber, and Steve Gillmor — woke up and fell out of bed in what was the most dramatic quake for most of us since ’89 and in my case LA in the ’70s. For the wine industry, this will have major impact, coming as it does as the Napa Valley goes to harvest what is called 25% of the US market. The major… Read More

    Gillmor Gang: More of the Same

    The Gillmor Gang — Dan Farber, Robert Scoble, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — split down the middle on the latest app trend known as unbundling. Foursquare begat Swarm, Facebook produced Messenger, and Yo popped out a beta with non-disclosed super powers. Tying it altogether was the seamless fabric of notifications, about to crescendo with iOS8’s app-to-app… Read More

    Gillmor Gang: Pass the Buck

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Dan Farber, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — spend a late Thursday afternoon on experiments, office shake ups, and a potential bank shot from an old monopolist.

    Gillmor Gang: The Other Shoe

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Keith Teare, Benedict Evans, Dan Farber, and Steve Gillmor — finally have a full picture of the two major mobile platforms. Google I/O certainly lived up to expectations as a checkoff of the major food groups: wearables, carables, set top boxables, and so on.
    Android L and iOS8 conspire to reflect the convergence around the notification bus… Read More

    Gillmor Gang: Pulp Friction

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — talk FirePhone and its impact on digital transactions in the material world. For starters, it’s not really a phone as much as an object recognition system that taps directly into the mainline of showteling.

  • Gillmor Gang: Apple Sauce

    Gillmor Gang: Apple Sauce

    The Gillmor Gang — Dan Farber, Kevin Marks, Robert Scoble, and Steve Gillmor. The setup: a delicious Apple muscle-flexing that to some somehow escaped the gravity of the Post Jobs era into orbit. We barely got to all the delights in the candy store — even upstarts with plenty to lose like the Box guy sat in the front row with a grin on his face at the sheer fun of Apple’s… Read More

    The Gillmor Gang — Alexia Tsotsis, Keith Teare, Robert Scoble, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — kick off the holiday weekend with a primer on cloud politics. Techcrunch co-editor Tsotsis in her maiden appearance in the clubhouse wastes no time putting @scobleizer on the spot, but Robert does a Seinfeld by saying nothing in a revealing way. Then we’re off to the land of Beats… Read More

    The Gillmor Gang — John Borthwick, Dan Farber, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — take a walk on the wild side as The New York Times publishes all the news that fits. Except, that is, the news about itself. The Twitterverse is clogged with leaked Innovation reports, business model Kremlin Wall analysis, and newsroom disappearances galore. For the record, we also stop in… Read More
