  • Gillmor Gang: Dynamic Clusters

    Gillmor Gang: Dynamic Clusters

    The Gillmor Gang — John Borthwick, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, John Taschek, and Steve Gillmor — move further and further toward the Golden Age of Push Notification. What some see as a fragmented sea of apps, others see as a ripe opportunity to unify notifications as the successor to email, social streaming to the core. As Windows gets sucked into the tidal wave of mobility, it's up to… Read More

    Gillmor Gang: Free As A Bird

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Dan Farber, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — recorded a Tuesday evening session in the wake of Apple's iPad refresh announcements. Tim Cook cemented control of the company by open-pricing apps and OS for the price of the hardware. In so doing, Apple did what Google has been doing for years: free upgrades to enhance the network effects of the… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Bluetooth Nipple Rings

    Gillmor Gang: Bluetooth Nipple Rings

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Doc Searls, John Taschek, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — demonstrate once again a complete disregard for the trending topics of the week. Instead, we talk bodyware, iBeam fashion design, the things that are still dead, and a healthy component of digital dish disguised as news. Excerpt from the live chat stream: Most people think they use tech for… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Context Matters

    Gillmor Gang: Context Matters

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — took out their devices and slapped them down on the table. By any measurement, the Context Wars are well under way. But neither Apple or particularly Google seem to realize what Twitter does — that notifications are the way to roll up both armies in the battle for user engagement. Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: IPOed

    Gillmor Gang: IPOed

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — Sure, we talked about the Twitter IPO, about the Bitcoin Bust, about whether Apple is a hardware or software company, and other stuff. Looming in the background was the idea that our politics have atrophied yet more to complete decrepitude, that we could unring the bell of the election, that the… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Sensorship

    Gillmor Gang: Sensorship

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Keith Teare, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — new iPhone + new OS = continued Apple domination. Twitter vacillates between NYSE and NASDAQ. Age of Context The Book ships as publishing gestation shrinks from 9 months to 2 weeks. It is only toward the end of the show that someone in the chat notices @scobleizer isn't wearing Google Glass. Apple… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Under My Thumb

    Gillmor Gang: Under My Thumb

    The Gillmor Gang — John Borthwick, Robert Scoble, Danny Sullivan, John Taschek, and Steve Gillmor — collected iPhone 5's from the corners of the tech world. Danny Sullivan ordered the elusive gold one at midnight in L.A., Scoble hit the midtown Apple Store in the Big Apple, John Borthwick got his via the betaworks diplomatic pouch, and John Taschek, well, Android Boy passed. After the show… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Inch by Inch

    Gillmor Gang: Inch by Inch

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Dan Farber, John Taschek, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — added up the Apple announcements, the Twitter IPO, and why Chromecast's Cloud-to-Device model will stick. No consensus on this last point, but since AirPlay does a little of both strategies, we'll know soon enough. The biometric capabilities and low-power bluetooth chip of the new iPhones may not… Read More

 
  • Gillmor Gang: Running On Empty

    Gillmor Gang: Running On Empty

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Dan Farber, John Taschek, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — why September 10 will be a turning point for Tim Cook, why the Microsoft/Nokia acquisition/Ballmer resignation had it backwards, why iWatch stands for software not hardware. Confusion makes for interesting times, or something like that. We're caught in a vortex of boredom, say some of us, waiting… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Contextual Adults

    Gillmor Gang: Contextual Adults

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — settle in for the Labor Day weekend with a tour of a busy news week. Stops along the way include iBeacon in iOS7, Twitter's thin blue line, the politics of twerking, and devices, devices, devices. Short takes on Bill Gates' unlikely return, Apple's iTrade-In offer, why Chromecast will change our… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Watching the River Flow

    Gillmor Gang: Watching the River Flow

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Dan Farber, Kevin Marks, Doc Searls, and Steve Gillmor — digest the resignation of Steve Ballmer and its potential impact on the direction of the Post-PC Era. Whether he was pushed by Bill Gates or what, it's clear something changed in the last few days. Just how or who can do better will soon be apparent, as Ballmer's lame duck term has been accelerated by a… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Drunken Avatars

    Gillmor Gang: Drunken Avatars

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Dan Farber, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — turned what seemed like a slow news week into a tour of emergent hardware and big tech ideas. A Down-Under visitor to Robert Scoble's studio showed us how he used a 3D printer to prototype a Steadicam-like handheld image stabilizer. Closer to home, we handicapped Elon Musk's HyperLoop project, the… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: I Spy

    Gillmor Gang: I Spy

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Doc Searls, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — well, let's just say this show went to some very strange places. Kangaroo balls, Google auto-urinary services, the real reason Jeff Bezos bought a newspaper, and other details of the Lull before the Next Storm. Much to be entertained with, but bolstered by some serious business about the tradeoffs… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: What's Up Doc

    Gillmor Gang: What’s Up Doc

    The Gillmor Gang — Bret Taylor, Robert Scoble, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — gather in real time to try out Bret's new startup, Quip. The last time we saw Bret, he was selling Friendfeed to Facebook and becoming CTO. Now, he's back (sporting Marc Benioff as one of his investors) at the intersection of mobile and collaboration. As if Microsoft didn't already have enough… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Christmas in July

    Gillmor Gang: Christmas in July

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — celebrate Google's gift to StreamTV. ChromeCast is cheap, small, simple, and extensible, just in time to kickoff the run up to Apple's big move to the Big Screen. It's a win-win for everybody involved, except maybe Microsoft and its XBox offering. Suddenly 3 screens and the cloud has shrunk to 2, or maybe… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: IBeacon & Eggs

    Gillmor Gang: iBeacon & Eggs

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, John Borthwick, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — woke up, fell out of bed, dragged a comb filter across our head. Television is going streamland in a big way, and the Emmy nominations of Netflix' House of Cards are but the most obvious indicator of the transformation. And what Apple has in store for us is becoming tangibly clear based on its dance… Read More
