    A blog reader wrote to me last week “Charles, what percentage of campaigns do newbies fail and what percentage do super affiliates fail?” The question is solid, but lets take it to the next level. What if we combined the failure rate with the expected value of each campaign? Before you continue reading, you should understand […]

  11. In less than 24 hours, Apple went from the undesirable position of being an enemy to Taylor Swift, to becoming once again the music industry’s best friend — at least when compared to the other largely-hated streaming platforms. In case you have better things to do on a Sunday than watch music industry squabbles play out on social networks (I don’t), here’s what happened: Apple had announced it would offer a free three month trial […]

    Twitter’s focus on becoming a commerce platform continues with a feature that allows celebrities, retailers, and others to create pages of items people can buy. The company has partnered with William Shatner, Target, and the Wirecutter among others to debut the new feature. Collections are available on Twitter’s website and its mobile applications, and are linked to their creators’ profiles. Twitter is positioning the feature as a tool through which […]

  13. Uber has changed its legal policy to stop drivers and passengers from bringing firearms onto any “ride arranged through the Uber platform.” The New Republic draws a connection between Uber’s new policy and an incident earlier this year which saw an driver in Chicago fire his gun — for which he had a concealed carry permit — at someone else shooting into a crowd. I’m […]

  14. On Wednesday, this year’s Pandoland concluded in Nashville in dramatic fashion when the winner of the startup competition, Umano, had to negotiate the terms of its $100,000 award with the panel of venture capitalists that had selected it from the nine other very worthy finalists. The fireworks began when the Jonathan and Alex Torrey, the brothers who founded the designer t-shirt company, gave their first “ask” for the $100K to be […]

  18. The Silicon Valley corporate practice of shipping outlying employees to-and-from HQ in giant private shuttles erupted in conflict early last year with a spate of well-documented bus blockades. The fuss was seemingly tamped down by a Mayor-approved pilot project charging the offending companies for use of public bus-stops and monitoring their operations and impacts. This program ends January 31, 2016, at which point a permanent arrangement will be considered, utilizing data gathered over the 18-month […]

  19. Having spent the last week reporting from Bonnaroo and helping to put on the tech conference-cum-whiskey party Pandoland in Nashville, you’ll have to forgive me for filing my review of Silicon Valley‘s Season 2 finale five whole days after it aired.

  20. It didn’t get much attention, but eBay just quietly unloaded its 28.4 percent stake in Craigslist, putting to rest one of the most sordid episodes in Silicon Valley, in which eBay executives — including First Look Media publisher Pierre Omidyar and HP chief Meg Whitman — were directly implicated in corporate spying, stealing secrets, and exploiting Craigslist’s anti-capitalist idealism.

  23. Pandoland’s digital swear jar: The results are in!
    Posted By Sarah Lacy on 06/19/2015

So at this year’s Pandoland, which just wrapped up in Nashville, we decided to monetize all that profanity with a digital swear jar and leaderboard. The cost was $10 a swear, with all proceeds going to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. St Jude’s is a cause very dear to my heart. […]

  25. Is Alibaba investing its way into a muddle?
    Posted By Kevin Kelleher on 06/18/2015

    What exactly is Alibaba becoming? The company’s unique business model, meteoric rise and dominance of China’s e-commerce (not to mention its opaque structure) have always belied easy analogies like “the Amazon of China.” Amazon disrupted a traditional commercial infrastructure with its site. Alibaba built a commercial infrastructure where one had never really existed. If the business model that gave Alibaba a $215 billion market cap has been tricky for […]

    Posted By Nathaniel Mott on 06/18/2015

    Nest has completed its assimilation of Dropcam. The company most-known for its smart thermostat announced today that it has made an Internet-connected home camera dubbed, fittingly enough, Nest Cam. It’s basically the Dropcam Pro with a few updates and a slightly different name. Nest Cam doesn’t come as a surprise.

  30. The War Nerd: A Glorious Victory, For Once!
    Posted By Gary Brecher on 06/17/2015

    You’ve probably heard by now that the Syrian Kurds have taken Tal Abyad, the key border town due north of Islamic State’s capital, Raqqa. It’s a huge loss for Islamic State, and a big boost for the Kurds. But it’s something more than that: a glorious victory. That’s not something I get to write very often. Most war stories are the dead opposite of glorious. You start out, as a […]

  31. Bradford Shellhammer, the CEO and co-founder of e-commerce design site Bezar, was the perfect speaker to kick off day two of Pandoland 2015. He was admittedly hungover and a bit-raspy voiced from an epic karaoke session in downtown Nashville last night as he discussed design and building his current startup with Pando’s Sarah Lacy. Almost as if they were discussing Voldemort, Shellhammer and Lacy occasionally alluded to his previous endeavor, Fab.com, […]

  32. Uber’s business model—skim profits off drivers, while avoiding the expenses that come with hiring drivers as employees—just suffered a major blow: the California labor commission has just ruled that Uber’s drivers are, in fact, employees, not contractors.
