    The quantified self, just for yourself

    Over the past few weeks Pando has published a series of articles on the “quantified self” —  the vogue, particularly amongst Silicon Valley types, for measuring all that is measurable about our health and fitness in order to make us even more perfectly perfect versions of ourselves. The term was coined by Wired’s Kevin Kelly in 2007 and today finds form in Fitbits, Up Bands, Glow fertility trackers, and even jabbing a needle into one’s arm to measure whatever “hematocrit” might be.…

    Judge throws out evidence gathered by agents posing as Caesars Palace Internet repairmen

    It’s a scene right out of Oceans Fourteen: The FBI deliberately cuts off Internet service to a gambler’s hotel room in order to force him to call for maintenance service. The repair man, of course, is actually an undercover agent who, acting without a warrant, uses his visit to the room to surreptitiously gather evidence of the suspect’s illegal gambling operation. Unfortunately for the feds, things don’t work the same in real life as they do in the movies. Where…

    Your Saturday viewing: Here’s Pando’s full interview with SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice

    Last month in New York, our guests for PandoMonthly were SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice. In a wide ranging interview, hosted by Pando’s Sarah Lacy, the two founders told how the company went from a business plan scrawled on a napkin to the hottest exercise trend in America. Even if you have no ambitions to build a health or fitness startup, the interview is packed with insight on how to build a consumer brand, how to scale without losing your…

    To mark Etsy’s IPO, here’s Chad Dickerson’s full PandoMonthly interview

    As Etsy makes its Nasdaq debut, what better time to re-watch (a then six month pregnant) Sarah Lacy’s in-depth PandoMonthly interview with CEO Chad Dickerson? As Michael Carney later described the interview, taped in January 2013: Although not the founder – he joined the company as CTO five years earlier before being promoted to the top role amid a contentious ouster of the company’s founders – Dickerson seemed to possess an innate understanding that Etsy was a community-first platform,…

    Funny or Die: If there were funny Republicans we’d be happy to have them

    During last week’s PandoMonthly with Funny or Die’s Dick Glover and Andrew Steele, Sarah Lacy asked them about their video featuring President Obama. Given the video’s reported success in attracting sign ups to Obamacare, Sarah asked Glover if they were worried about publishing videos that contained political views with which they personally disagreed. What if publishing those views on Funny or Die made them even more popular? Glover insisted the site doesn’t align itself with one side or another, joking: “Whether we think Obamacare is the…
