  1. Internet 3: Rise of The Machines

    In "Terminator 2: Judgment Day", we're told that Skynet would become self aware on August 29, 1997, thus marking the rise of the machines. As is often the case in science-fiction, the specific dates and details were wrong, but the underlying sentiment of the predictions were far more true than we realize.

  2. The Great Digg Experiment Begins Tomorrow -- Will It Work?

    The promise of Digg was great, and its fall was just as incredible. The company's firesale sent shockwaves across the Web, especially to anyone sitting on a currently hot startup. Here is a Web 2.0 darling, once worth as much as $300 million, selling piecemeal, the sum of its parts worth a paltry $16 million. Watch out, or this could be you.

  3. Internet to PandoDaily: Sorry, We Don't Want the Stuff in Your Garage

    A few weeks ago, PandoDaily managing editor Nathan Pensky had a foosball table to get rid of, and wanted to sell it on the Internet. This was clearly intern work, but Sarah Lacy (being the angel that she is) suggested I make a story out of it. So for the past month, I've been going from cyber door to cyber door to sell Nathan's foosball table, posting it as well as four other items donated by the staff onto a bevy of "sell your stuff" sites.

  7. Why Box's $125M Round Is Good for Software

    Box is announcing today that it has raised a whopper of round of capital: $125 million, mostly from growth investor General Atlantic. GA's Gary Reiner is going to join the board -- his experience alone is a coup without the cash. Reiner is the former CIO of General Electric. As such, he's exactly the kind of guy that Box CEO Aaron Levie is trying to convert to a cloud way of life.

  8. Socialvest Releases iPhone App to Turn Mobile Commerce Into Social Good

    Credit card reward programs feel like a joke. They will often promise cash back or a shot at winning a trip to the Super Bowl or Olympics or what-have-you, dangling the possibility of a grand trip that costs just a fraction of their profits. Offering cash back for purchases feels like a consolation prize for choosing a credit card and turning the other cheek when it comes time to view your interest rates. Socialvest is built on the same concept as these reward programs – that users want cash back – but flips it on its head by giving the money earned to non-profits instead of the user.
