  1. Bloggers Unite To Help Raise Money For The Electronic Frontier Foundation

    For the past few weeks, a few facts about our lives have been clarified. The first is that the Internet is critically important to our way of life, and that freedom of expression is central to that. The second is that there are people who are not only willing, but also desire to restrict the freedom of expression and information that the internet enables.

  3. So Not Helping: Chinese Government Publication Lauds Twitter's New Policy

    We've debated this a lot at PandoDaily this weekend, but I haven't been one of those bloggers chasing Twitter with torches and pitchforks over its controversial move to censor Tweets within certain territories when they receive an official take-down notice.

  4. Tech Dispatches from Davos: Why They Invited the Little Guy

    Now that it's over, I have to confess that I was quite surprised that CloudFlare was ever invited to the World Economic Forum's Annual Meeting. While today we have some national governments and Fortune 500 companies that use CloudFlare, our bread and butter is bringing the resources of the Internet giants to the rest of the web. So it was somewhat odd for the giants to invite us to the party.

    Well, it's all kicking off between Curebit and 37 Signals. As originally reported by VentureBeat, Curebit -- a self-described "Social Referral Platform" -- was caught using chunks of code (and some images) sourced from 37 Signals' HighRise product.

  7. How Google can save Android: Close it. License it. Swim in the profits.

    For much of 2011, it looked like Android was crushing it. Google had brilliantly pushed its free mobile OS to every corner of the earth—you could pick up an Android phone from every manufacturer on every carrier at every price point, most often just as a consolation prize for signing a contract. Looking back, I’d peg Android’s high-water mark at around April Fool’s Day, when Fred Wilson declared Google’s OS to be the preeminent marketplace for mobile developers. Not only was Android nearing a majority share of the smartphone market, its rate of growth eclipsed that of every other platform. Meanwhile Apple’s growth appeared to have stalled; February 2011’s comScore data showed that even despite launching on Verizon, the iPhone was just barely holding on to its 25 percent market share.

  8. That Was Fast: Betaworks Returns All Capital... And Then Some

    The New York tech scene has certainly received a lot of hype, but a lot of people are waiting for results that prove it's more than just that. Proof that New York is really a tech ecosystem that is here to stay, no matter what may happen to Foursquare and Gilt.
