  1. Bay Gross and His Magical EssayTyper: A Normative Critique

  2. Seattle's Gaming Industry: An Introduction

    I came to Seattle for a two-week reporting assignment with little idea of what exactly I should cover. Sure, there are the obvious players: Microsoft, Amazon, Cheezburger, and Valve. But rather than focus solely on the history of Microsoft and Amazon, there's also a pressing need to define the startup experience in Seattle. What makes Seattle's tech scene tick? What about this city doesn't receive enough press coverage? What is Seattle's id?

  3. Etsy Weddings Marks New Emphasis on Commerce + Content

    It's an Etsy kind of day here at PandoDaily. While silent protesters are blocking access to their stores for a day (not actually protesting in person, as I originally noted), everything is wine and roses in a different section of the site. The company this week launched Etsy Weddings.

  4. What Now: Board Meeting or Waste of Time?

    SpiderNet has been around for a few years and you’ve held many board meetings over this time period. But the board meetings have become routine reporting events, and you are often forced to spend additional time with each board member after a board meeting to “tell the real story." You are starting to feel that your board meetings are pretty much bullshit and a waste of time.

  6. Frank & Oak Redefines Affordable Menswear for the Curation Era

    A few months ago the extent of my sartorial knowledge was limited to "V-necks are good" and "Never wear socks with flip-flops." After realizing that I own what are essentially the same shirts with a few minor color variations, I started to scour the Web for affordable menswear, hoping I could branch out from my typical jeans-and-T-shirt uniform.

  7. BetterWorks Reimagines the Hackathon with Legos and a Beachfront Penthouse

    BetterWorks is a company all about making the lives of employees better. It’s corporate culture, from its self-described “adrenaline-fueled angel investor” founder to its lowliest employee is one of people first and fun.

  8. Stanford, Silicon Valley, and John Hennessy's Real Legacy

    I finally got around to reading Ken Auletta's New Yorker piece on the uneasy relationship between Stanford and Silicon Valley this weekend. It was excellently reported and written, along with most things Auletta does. Seriously, I bet he even has awesome grocery lists.
