  2. Facebook's New Ads Walk a Very Fine, Spammy Line

    Sorry Dave's Diamond Barn, but if Facebook's new ad format obnoxiously kills everything we loved about the site, it'll be your fault, not Nike's.

  3. The Political System Is Broken. Votizen Plans On Fixing It.

    The Presidential elections in the United States are controlled by money. Candidates spend time raising money, setting up organizations that collect money, and hire people whose job it is to take care of the money. They pledge money and take money. Then, at the end of the year, all of the candidates compare how much money they've raised, and whoever raises the most wins the election.

  4. Facebook's New Logout Ads Are Actually Clever as Hell

    When Facebook announced their new Logout ads this morning, I didn't quite...get it. Facebook was throwing around the fact that 37 million people hit that Logout page each day, but how many of those people actually look at that page for more than half a second before navigating elsewhere or walking away? Stuffing an ad in there wouldn't change that.

  7. Exec: It's Like TaskRabbit With A Twist Of Uber

    Justin Kan is no stranger to the startup scene. As Justin.TV's namesake founder and the guy who found a company within his company with Twitch.TV, he's already got two successes under his belt. Three, if you count the rarely mentioned (and sadly now defunct) Kiko, which was acquired by Tucows in 2006.

  8. Facebook Brings Timeline To Brand Pages

    If you're the admin behind any Facebook Pages (like, say, a band, sports team, or your ridiculously wonderful tech blog)... surprise! You've got new toys to play with this morning. Pages are being transitioned over to Timeline, and there's a shiny (and considerably less kludgy) new admin panel tucked inside.
