The Women's March on Washington had historic participation, but the momentum might be hard to sustain with such a varied set of issues.

The Women's March on Washington had historic participation, but the momentum might be hard to sustain with such a varied set of issues.

In an apartment in Brooklyn on Friday, Jamie McCarty and Alinne Fernandes, in their late twenties and early thirties respectively, readied themselves for a trip to Washington, D.C. They had decided they had to join the hundreds of thousands of people who had committed to gather and march in Washington against recently sworn in president Trump, whose misogynist commentary and alignment with white supremacists has angered many.

The Galaxy Note 7 Explosion Findings Could Change How Samsung Makes Smartphones

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 13:00 +0000

Samsung pushed the limits of lithium-ion batteries too far. This could change the timing and design of its future phones.

Samsung pushed the limits of lithium-ion batteries too far. This could change the timing and design of its future phones.

After months of confusion about the real cause of the Galaxy Note 7 explosions, Samsung finally provided some answers on Sunday, releasing a detailed report on its findings into the problem. In a micro sense, the explosions were caused by both design flaws and manufacturing errors. In a macro sense, they stemmed from Samsung trying to do too much too fast with lithium-ion batteries. This approach may soon change, and could likely impact the company's phone designs and the regularity with which Samsung releases new phones.

Classic to-do lists don't provide context or give a timeline, and they're easy to ignore. Here's how to make a better list.

Writing a to-do list seems like a tidy little way to keep track of what you need to accomplish, but it can fall short or even derail your success. To-do lists don't provide context about the tasks, they don't give you a timeline, and they're easy to ignore. What's more, to-do list prioritizing systems can be complicated and hard to navigate.

When you're dating, one of the most uncomfortable conversations is when you have to break it off.

Your client's culture creep can doom your solo career. But guess what? You're a company, too, and you also have a culture.

Most people who start working for themselves for the first time enter the world of "solopreneurship" with little to no sales experience. This means we often pick up work anywhere we can get it—sometimes without realizing how much the anxiety to get started compromises our efforts right out of the gates.

Six Tips For Improving Your Digital Job Search While You're Unemployed

If you're an unemployed web developer, your personal brand is still "web developer."

When you're unemployed, the sinking feeling that it'll be impossible to find another job isn't just in the pit of your stomach—or your head. In many cases, you really are dealing with discrimination from employers. Northeastern University researchers found that someone who's been unemployed for six months or longer is much less likely to land an interview than someone who's been between jobs for only a short time, even if they lack the right skills.

The Science And Politics Of Counting The Crowds At The Inauguration And Women's March

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 17:00 +0000

Organizers have reason to exaggerate, but AI and eyes in the sky are starting to provide a much better estimate of how many people show up.

Organizers have reason to exaggerate, but AI and eyes in the sky are starting to provide a much better estimate of how many people show up.

Public events are a numbers game. If a hundred people show up at a protest in Washington, D.C., who cares? But a hundred thousand? Okay, let's hear what they have to say. With a country fiercely split politically, each side will be bringing out as many supporters as they can today and tomorrow: conservatives with the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump on Friday, and liberals with the Women's March on Washington on Saturday. The high estimate for the Inauguration is 800,000 people, while 215,000 people have registered for the Women's March on the event's Facebook page. (There are also Women's Marches planned for other major U.S. cities.) Each side will have an incentive to exaggerate their turnout, and expect plenty of heated debate about the numbers this weekend. But technology is making it harder for them to stretch the truth.

Mike Boston turned his pickup truck into a recording studio for city kids. Now he's using it to ease tensions between cops and civilians.

Mike Boston is frustrated by the city that coincidentally bears his name. It's not just that Boston and nearby communities in Massachusetts struggle with gun violence, racial tension, and strained relations between police and citizens. Many U.S. cities do. And while these issues certainly confound the 41-year-old musician and entrepreneur, so does this one: There are few, if any, famous rappers hailing from his hometown.

As President Obama leaves office, entrepreneurs and tech leaders weigh in on his legacy.

As President Obama leaves office, entrepreneurs and tech leaders weigh in on his legacy.

Barack Obama was, in many ways, the first president who was truly plugged in. Over the course of his 2008 campaign, Obama famously embraced social media like no candidate previously had, and upon assuming office, he became the first president to appoint both a chief technology officer and chief data scientist. Last fall, Obama hosted South by South Lawn, a festival inspired by Austin's South by Southwest that quite literally celebrated the "spirit of innovation" at the doorstep of the White House.

Datto chief Austin McChord never dreamed he'd get caught up in one of the most consequential political dramas ever.

Months after the election, we still don't know for sure what happened to all of Hillary Clinton's emails, the ones that passed through her private email server, a question that remains unresolved and continues to infuriate some of President-elect Donald Trump's die-hard supporters. But one clue to unraveling the mystery may lie with a low-key tech company based in southwestern Connecticut and its 31-year-old freckle-faced CEO, who handed over up to 17,448 deleted Clinton emails to the FBI.

"Ghost restaurants" with no physical location are popping up across the country. Can a restaurant succeed if it's delivery-only?

Hungry New Yorkers ordering meals through such online services as Seamless or Eat24 order everything from sushi to burgers to tacos. But when they order from certain restaurants like Leafage and Butcher Block, they might not realize that those restaurants aren't restaurants at all. They are virtual eateries created by a company called the Green Summit Group that operates several food-delivery services out of central commissaries in midtown Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Chicago. In New York alone, Green Summit's brands offer all sorts of cuisine "concepts," including meatballs, salad/sandwich/juice, and burgers/grilled cheese.

How Well Can You Trust Your Boss? Here's How To Tell

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 10:00 +0000

When your boss says, "Trust me," should you?

When your boss says, "Trust me," should you?

Here's the funny thing about integrity: It's one of the most crucial ingredients of effective leadership, but it's notoriously hard to measure. One reason is that integrity is somewhat contextual; psychologists have found that the same person may act with integrity in some situations but not others. And it's true that corrupt, mischievous work cultures tend to unleash deviant behaviors even in those who'd behave ethically under other circumstances. By the same token, "prosocial," ethical cultures discourage naughtiness, forcing even those with relatively little integrity to act in uncharacteristically moral ways (at least for a while).
