  1. The first six months of PandoMonthly 2013. Become a member and see them all

    One complaint we've heard from existing members is that it was hard to plan around our PandoMonthly events, because we weren't always great at telling you in advance when they were coming up.

  3. In today's venture world, self-discipline is a virtue and denial is a red flag

    There has been a pretty large response to our post about the Series A crunch last week. I don't know what's more surprising: That so few people argue with the premise or that there are actually one or two who try to downplay or outright dismiss it in the face of pretty overwhelming evidence.

  4. Agent of Presence: Where Prada meets Apple

    I first got a glimpse of the high-tech runway when Pop17’s video blogger Sarah Austin was my intern at Forbes in June, 2011. In this video, She interviewed former reality star Diana Eng, who has a line of high-tech fashions that cost between $10,000 and $20,000. The dresses, with circuit boards hidden behind the fabric powering lights flashing in not-so-subtle ways, were not ones the average person would ever wear to a cocktail party or even a Black Tie affair, unless they wanted to be considered the showpiece of the event. Most of the high-tech fashions you see on the runway, as the one pictured to the left, make the models look like walking Christmas trees.
