  1. MetaCert Releases Olly, a Porn-Free iPad Browser

    It was late Friday night when Paul Carr asked me to take a look at Olly, a kid-friendly browser from MetaCert. Paul wrote about MetaCert earlier this year and broke the news that the company had raised $740,000 to make it easier for schools and parents to block porn on their kids' computers.

  2. In Honor of Tumblr and the Guardian, We Made Some GIFs of History's Most Memorable Debate Moments

    In a major step in the Internet's inexorable march toward "peak GIF," Tumblr and the Guardian have teamed up some of the Web's most prolific GIF artists to "live-GIF" the presidential debates. That got us thinking: what would some of the most memorable moments in debate history look like when GIF-ified?

  3. With A Boost From Barry Diller, Brooklyn's Atavist Turns the Page on Digital Publishing

    Evan Ratliff and Barry Diller are pretty different characters. Diller, the billionaire owner of IAC and a 300-foot super-yacht, is often described as pugnacious, tough, and volatile, or some variation thereof. Ratliff, a journalist turned entrepreneur, is basically a mild-mannered Brooklyn hipster cat owner.He's best known for a Wired experiment-cum-cover story in which he “vanished” off the grid and challenged geeks at home to track him down. Somehow, however, Diller and Ratliff have forged a business partnership that a couple of years ago must have seemed unthinkable.

  5. Startups to Brands: "We're Not Your Creative Agency"

    The relationship between startups and brands has never been simple. Brands want startups to help them with their social media presence, but too often they view it as a way to bolt on some generic sense of "innovation." Startups who are looking to build something big aren't dying to do spec works for brands, even for cash. Given the gap, deals rarely work out because the two simply can't see eye-to-eye.

  6. No More Lame Fruit Baskets from Your Boss: Wantful Goes Corporate

    The holidays are rough. There's a reason why everyone used to believe that suicide rates spiked around Christmas – waiting in line at whichever store happens to be selling the gift you absolutely "have" to get is enough to make even the most stable person contemplate offing themselves. Now imagine that instead of buying for a few family members you have to try and find a gift for hundreds or thousands of employees. Bleak, huh?

  8. Get 'em While They're Young: Kleiner Perkins Opens Applications for 2013 Engineering Fellows Program

    VC firms are, of course, in the business of making money, yet looking only at the current generation of entrepreneurs banging down their doors is short sighted. Silicon Valley stalwart Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers knows this and just wrapped up the inaugural edition of its KPCB Engineering Fellows Program aimed at finding entrepreneurs while they’re still in school. Applications for the Summer 2013 edition open today.
