Thu, 29 Jun 2017 12:00:22 GMT

If you’re only thinking about it when there’s a team conflict, it’s probably too late.

Startups get a lot of advice. And for good reason–there are millions of decisions to be made as you begin the journey of building a company.

Can The Blockchain Help Renew Confidence In Government?

Thu, 29 Jun 2017 11:30:14 GMT

In countries where public records can be altered with a bribe and a wink, the permanent record of the blockchain could cut down on corruption and restore faith in institutions.

If you own a nice piece of ocean-front property, and I decide I would like that piece of property, and my cousin works in the land registry where we both live, I don’t need to buy the property from you to have it for my weekend parties. I can contact my cousin and ask him to transfer the record over to me.

How Not To Suck At Networking When You Have A Lame Job Title

Thu, 29 Jun 2017 11:00:07 GMT

Saying “I’m a production assistant” won’t make you the most fascinating person in the room, but these three alternatives might.

You’ve finally landed a job you know will lead to more career opportunities. The pay isn’t bad and the company name has a nice ring to it. The only thing is, you’d prefer not to mention your job title to anyone worth trying to impress.

I’ve Raised A Billion In VC Funding—Let Me Help You With That Pitch

Thu, 29 Jun 2017 10:00:47 GMT

LegalZoom CEO John Suh’s secret formula: three compelling points, delivered in 60 seconds or less.

I’ve raised around a billion dollars in funding from venture capitalists and have been an angel investor in dozens of companies, so I’m not surprised when founders ask me for pitching advice. Having been on both sides of the table, I’ve seen what works and what doesn’t many times over.

These Five Videos Capture The Dramatic Debut Of The First iPhone

Thu, 29 Jun 2017 09:30:19 GMT

Unlike those of the first Ford automobile, for example, the biggest moments of 21st century products are captured for posterity.

Much has already been said and written about the global impact of the iPhone. I won’t add to the pile of superlatives. But given how important the device has become over the past decade, it’s fun to watch the footage on and leading up to the day the iPhone launched a decade ago on June 29, 2007.

This RV Full Of Lawyers Is Touring Rural America To Save Young Immigrants From Deportation

Thu, 29 Jun 2017 09:00:39 GMT

The Santa Fe Dreamers Project hopes to change the way we view immigrants, but it’s facing more challenges than ever.

“Right now, I’m representing a 1-year-old facing deportation to El Salvador, where her life is in danger,” says Allegra Love, an attorney and founder of the Santa Fe Dreamers Project, a legal nonprofit serving immigrant youth. Tens of thousands refugees have fled El Salvador due to rampant gang violence.

Why We Won’t See The Likes Of 2007’s iPhone Mania Again

Thu, 29 Jun 2017 09:00:06 GMT

On June 29, 2007, a perfect storm of hoopla captured the world’s attention in a way that was remarkable at the time—and impossible to repeat today.

On Friday, June 29, 2007, I got up extra-early and headed to the Stonestown Galleria shopping center in San Francisco. By 7:20 a.m., there was already a sizable line of people waiting to buy the first iPhone, which wouldn’t go on sale until 6 p.m. that night at the Apple Store inside the mall.

Beyond The Mythology: Telling The Real Stories Behind The iPhone

Thu, 29 Jun 2017 08:00:55 GMT

In his new book, The One Device, Brian Merchant traveled the world to research the secret history of the device that changed everything.

Few would deny that the iPhone was the most significant technological breakthrough of the past decade or that their iPhone (or similar smartphone) is their most important possession—but how much do you really know about the device?

Thu, 29 Jun 2017 08:00:48 GMT

These seemingly innocuous questions actually tread in murky legal territory.

Recently, we’ve reported on a variety of interview questions ranging from the most common to the most annoying, and even the toughest curveball queries.

Taste, Smell, Sight, Or Sound: Which Senses Make You Buy Sooner?

Thu, 29 Jun 2017 07:00:08 GMT

A new marketing study out of Brigham Young University reports how triggering different senses can affect when we buy things.

Over the past few years, advertisers have been increasingly looking to recruit all our senses in their quest of persuasion. As Dr. Ray Stantz once said, “Listen! Do you smell something?” Which could be something you’re muttering to yourself as you wander down the block. It’s nothing new–anyone remember when, in 2006, Goodby Silverstein & Partners made the bus shelters in San Francisco smell like freshly baked cookies for a Got Milk campaign? Now a new marketing study out of Brigham Young University and the University of Washington reports that even using the right words to trigger different senses can result in a different reaction.

These Photos Take You Into The Makeshift Community Pressed Against The Border Wall

Thu, 29 Jun 2017 06:00:39 GMT

Where there is already a border between the U.S. and Mexico, a community has formed of people who are stuck in a limbo between two places.

Donald Trump’s great, tremendous border wall might not have been built yet, but about 650 miles worth of “wall,” already exists, a vestige of border-control projects from earlier administrations. But instead of being simply a symbol of isolation, the wall has been altered by its environment: It’s become a home for many people who have washed up against it.

Millennials Think It’s Time To Bring Back The Analog Watch

Thu, 29 Jun 2017 06:00:17 GMT

The smartphone was supposed to kill old school watches but several new startups that cater to millennials have brought them back in vogue.

Old school watches are back in vogue and millennials are leading the way—as both consumers and makers.

The iPhone Helped Convince Us We Need The Web All The Time, Every Day

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 20:26:06 GMT

That’s according to Brian McCullough, who runs the popular Internet History podcast, and discussed the iconic device’s impact upon its 10th anniversary.

The iPhone wasn’t the first so-called smartphone when it launched in 2007, but it was arguably the first to capture the popular imagination, and it certainly shaped the evolution of smartphones after that. The iPhone and other smartphones are such a central part of life that it’s easy to forget what the world was like before they showed up. It was a world of Blackberries, pen styluses, and a few poorly functioning touch screens. And Facebook was just a baby.

Here’s What Twitter Thought Of The First iPhone Back In 2007

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 19:33:32 GMT

To appreciate the hoopla of iPhone launch day, you had to be there. But if you weren’t–or have forgotten about it–read these tweets.

In June 2007, Twitter was 15 months old, and not yet a mainstream phenomenon. It was, however, developing a booming audience among the technorati. So when the first iPhone arrived at Apple Stores–still maybe the most-hyped moment in the history of consumer technology–it’s no shocker that it kind of took over Twitter.

5 Principles To Make Sure Businesses Design Responsible AI

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 17:40:49 GMT

As everyone starts automating their businesses, we must be sure they’re doing it in a way that helps everyone.

A report from PwC predicts that 38% of American jobs will be automated by 2030. Analysis from The Washington Post puts the number of millennials who will be competing with robots for jobs in their lifetime at 50%. While these numbers matter (including to me personally, as a working millennial), it is important to put them in perspective and understand how bots–and artificial intelligence–will work alongside humans in the offices of the future. And how companies like Microsoft, Amazon, Slack and Facebook who are already scripting and powering workplace applications of AI can ethically create new integrations and innovations.

The Country’s Mayors Commit Their Cities To 100% Renewable Power

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 12:45:28 GMT

If all the cities in U.S. Conference of Mayors hit this goal, it would cut more emissions than was outlined in the Paris Climate Agreement.

Donald Trump’s decision to leave the Paris Climate Agreement continues to galvanize states and cities to take climate action for themselves. Earlier this month, hundreds of governors and mayors signed on to pledges to keep cutting carbon emissions, as if the United States was still part of the international consensus on global warming. And, this week, many mayors made a more specific commitment: to fulfill all their cities’ energy needs from renewable sources.

6 Red Flags That Make Recruiters Pass On Your Resume

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 12:00:44 GMT

Fix the things that are stopping you from landing job interviews.

The good news: Most jobseekers vastly underestimate how much power their resume has in shaping the hiring process. How you’re perceived, how difficult of an interview process you have, and yes, how big of an initial offer you get are hugely dependent on what information you provide to an employer, and how accurately you address their pain points.

Small Nations Are Boldly Staking Claims In The Unfolding Space Economy

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 12:00:01 GMT

Space mining startups and satellite companies find financial incentives, stable governments, and streamlined regulations in places like the UAE and Luxembourg.

The nations of the world are chomping at the bit over the unfolding space economy, from ever-more satellite launches to tourism and mining. And it’s not just the major powers, like the U.S., Russia, and China—smaller countries like Luxembourg and the United Arab Emirates also want their piece of the pie in the sky.
