Art Imitates Life, Silicon Valley Imitates Gizmodo.com

I didn’t get to watch Silicon Valley’s “Binding Arbitration” until this afternoon because of WWDC, so apologies for the late post. In the penultimate episode, we’re treated to some solid courtroom drama, Jared quoting Hitler, and a plotline should ring a thousand bells for anyone who read Gizmodo five years ago. » 6/08/15 7:45pm 6/08/15 7:45pm

Look At All These Tech Panels That Are Only Dudes

We know that Silicon Valley has a women problem, and it’s not just at Pied Piper.

Welcome To BusinessTown, the Children's Book Version of Silicon Valley 

In your recent internet wanderings you might have spotted a few residents of BusinessTown, the industrious anthropomorphic animals who look strikingly similar to the ones from your favorite childhood picture book—except these creatures are digital strategy “intrapreneurs” who give TED Talks on how nanobots will end… » 5/06/15 1:50pm 5/06/15 1:50pm

Silicon Valley Season Premiere: Negging Three-Foot Cocks 

HBO’s second-most-popular returning show about shifting alliances and desperate, bold power plays in an unpredictable and vicious world on the brink of howling collapse came back last night.

Thanks For the Net Neutrality, Oligarchs

"Net neutrality" will be the law of the land following the Federal Communications Commission's vote to reclassify broadband Internet services as public utilities. Please take some time this week to thank the outspoken citizens who made this possible. These heroes of the open Internet are regular folk, just like you… » 2/28/15 10:58am 2/28/15 10:58am
