  1. Can You Handle the Truth? Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs Movie is Going to be a Disaster

    Here’s a prediction: Aaron Sorkin’s film adaptation of Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs biography is going to be a disaster. It will likely be a good-looking, entertaining disaster, full of fast-talking geniuses who deliciously get their comeuppance at the hand of the even smarter, faster-talking Jobs. When it opens at a theater near you in a few years’ time, the film will become the toast of Hollywood and an instant blockbuster, and not long after it will attain the status of documentary truth: Sorkin’s film will become the definitive account of Jobs’ life, the thing we’ll all think about when we try to remember Steve Jobs.

  5. PandoList: 5 "First In, Last Out" Engineers

    We're back with our traditional PandoList this week, profiling the earliest engineer hires at some of the most successful companies in the country. Too often, we hear about these engineers' products, and very rarely do we hear about what it was like when these companies first began. Who were the original hires, and what the heck was it like when these guys were starting out?

  6. Institutional Investors Loved Venture Capital to Death

    The "Venture Capital is broken" meme isn't new. It was recently re-ignited by a refreshingly honest report from the Kauffman Foundation that laid bare the endowment's not-too-impressive history investing in the asset class.
