  1. Only a handful of hours removed from the end of Pando’s 24-hour Don’t Be Awful event, a gathering dedicated to fostering ideas for a better Silicon Valley, and we already have another glaring example of why such an event is desperately needed.  Dice.com, a self-described “a job searching platform for technology professionals,” is advertising its service with a Bay Area billboard that reads “Find the hottest tech […]

    Posted By Boris Wertz, Guest Contributor on 01/25/2015

    (Editor’s note: This is a guest post by Boriz Wertz, founder of Version One Ventures. The post went through PandoDaily’s usual editorial process. Mr. Wertz was not paid for this post.) Three roles that every investor should play What’s the right role for an investor to play with their portfolio? Should he or she be the biggest cheerleader, the toughest critic, or just have the deepest pockets? As someone who is still […]

  5. A few days ago, the Internet giants finally joined Hollywood’s elite when Transparent became the first show distributed solely by a tech company — in this case, Amazon — to win Best Series at a major award show — in this case, the Golden Globes. It was a triumph not just for Amazon, and not just for the larger community of disruptive newcomers to television, which includes Netflix and Hulu. It was, quite […]

  6. Quiz: CES gadget or SkyMall product?
    Posted By David Holmes on 01/23/2015

    SkyMall, the catalog featuring hilariously unnecessary products like a human slingshot and $100 USB cufflinks, has filed for bankruptcy. Poring through the SkyMall catalog was a cherished event for air travelers, at least for those ten or fifteen minutes during takeoff and landing when some flight attendants still give fliers grief for using electronic devices. The reasons for the liquidationm however, are not necessarily related to the ridiculousness […]

  10. Wikipedia’s arbitration committee, which acts as the organization’s top decision-maker, has banned several people from editing articles related to gender and sexuality. Why? Because they sought to prevent the site from taking a positive stance on GamerGate. For anyone who has managed to forget what GamerGate is: it’s a movement that claims to be about ethics in games journalism, though many of its adherents are more devoted to harassing women who make, critique, or have […]

  11. Obama said to scrap plans to privatize NSA-collected metadata
    Posted By Nathaniel Mott on 01/23/2015

    President Obama has reportedly scrapped plans to have a private company hold the phone metadata collected through National Security Agency surveillance programs. Reuters says in a report citing several anonymous security professionals that the plan was abandoned because it’s seen as “unworkable for both legal and practical reasons.” A source told Reuters that the decision is not final, but privatizing the data seems unlikely. The plan was first proposed after the government faced widespread criticism […]

  14. Launch Tennessee: This is why startups hate working with politicians
    Posted By Sarah Lacy and Paul Carr on 01/23/2015

    A quick update from Pando’s department of public fights we really don’t have time for… Pando historians will remember that, last year, our flagship Nashville conference (then called “Southland”) was produced in partnership with “Launch Tennessee,” the state-funded regional development agency tasked with encouraging entrepreneurship in Tennessee. We were responsible for the on-stage content and guests, and brought in the vast majority […]

  15. Numerous senators from around the country have (re-)presented a bill which would require law enforcement to obtain warrants before gathering location information from phones, GPS devices, and the “stingrays” which mimic cell towers to gather data. The bill was co-written by Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR.), who has previously argued against the National Security Agency’s surveillance programs and the FBI’s efforts to force tech companies to include “backdoors” into their products to […]

  16. Apple is said to have given the Chinese government access to the software used in its iPhones to conduct “security checks” meant to ensure the privacy of China’s citizens. The revelation comes courtesy of a tweet from one of China’s state-run publications and a Beijing News report claiming Apple chief executive Tim Cook authorized the checks. China’s government originally delayed the launch of Apple’s latest iPhones within the country because it […]

  17. After more than a year of fits and stops along the road to IPO, shares of enterprise storage company Box began trading this morning on the New York Stock Exchange. The company completed the sale 12.5 million shares to investors at a price of $14 per share yesterday, exceeding its pre-IPO estimated range of $11 to $13, but falling short of the $20 per share at which it raised […]

  18. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: the Winklevoss twins have a brilliant idea and they’ve hired some smart-as-hell programmers to help build it for them. The good news is, this latest idea is about as far from the college social network Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss famously “invented” while at Harvard. That said, it stands a good chance of being just about as […]

  19. Barrett Brown and the United States’ war on journalism
    Posted By Nathaniel Mott on 01/23/2015

    The criminalization of journalism in the United States continued yesterday with the sentencing of Barrett Brown, an independent journalist who covered the Anonymous collective who received 63 months in federal prison and was ordered to pay $890,000 in restitution. (The 28 months he has already served in prison will be deducted from the sentence.) Brown was arrested for publishing links to stolen information which was made public by Anonymous and other hacker groups. That’s […]

  20. You probably wouldn’t hear Pepsi overtly tell customers to stop drinking Coca-Cola. They might make veiled attacks on a non-specific “competitor” in an advertisement. But without empirical evidence for why Pepsi is better than Coke, mentioning Coke by name would not only risk drawing undue attention to a product that is already more popular than Pepsi — it would also come off as a little desperate. And yet, according to Mashable, that’s […]

  21. According to Gawker, its offices along with at least two other New York media companies are under special protection of the New York Police Department, after all three outlets republished Charlie Hebdo covers depicting Muhammed. On January 7, the Paris magazine Charlie Hebdo came under attack by gunmen who killed 12 people, presumably in response to controversial cartoons it published depicting the Islamic prophet Muhammed. Some Islamic teachings explicitly forbid pictorial representations of Muhammed. Furthermore, Charlie Hebdo’s […]

  22. A week can’t pass without a company revealing that information about millions of consumers’ credit cards, email addresses, and other personal data has been stolen.

Large companies aren’t the only ones vulnerable to attack, either. A report from the Guardian, citing the […]

  25. Authorities often struggle when it comes to handling digital issues. Responding to the Sony Pictures Entertainment hack has befuddled the federal government, law enforcement can’t deal with online harassment, and prosecutors often over-react to digital mischief.
