  1. EFF Off: Pando reporter politely, fittingly evicted from anti-surveillance workshop

    Earlier today, I wrote about my experience at the Defend the Bay Area anti-tech protest meeting. I also mentioned that I'd be attending the group's EFF-backed workshop on Crypto Anti-Surveillance Training.

  2. Techie scum (me) attends anti-tech protest meeting, does not die

    If you’ve been out walking in the Mission in the past couple of weeks, you may have noticed some posters around exhorting passersby to “Fight Back Against the Tech Takeover.” The posters announce that there will be a “week of actions March 28 - April 5.”

  3. As more experts dispute GoBe's "bullshit" medical claims, Indiegogo still refuses to pull its near-$1m campaign

    Ten days ago, I reported various red flags around Moscow-based Healbe and its Indiegogo campaign to build a “GoBe activity tracker.”

  4. Half of Uber's insurance arrangements leaked. We're still waiting for the other half

    A few weeks ago, when Uber announced its new expanded insurance policy, Pando asked to see the company's coverage. Since it's a custom deal created just for Uber, the public couldn't know what protections drivers -- and unwitting bystanders -- were afforded without it. We essentially had to blindly trust in what Uber told us.

  6. Tech companies deliberately attempting to hire people with autism

    This looks like a good move on the part of some tech firms. Deliberately looking among those on the autism spectrum for those whose autism provides them with skills that are useful to said companies: Some employers increasingly are viewing autism as an asset and not a deficiency in the workplace.

  7. Oops! Silk Road shutdown leads to more online drug sales

    It looks as if global law enforcement is getting a taste of the Streisand effect. Nearly six months after the FBI seized the underground black market website Silk Road, not only have dozens of copycats sprung up in its place (although none yet reaching its level of scale or dominance), but also the level of online drug sales activity has actually increased in some jurisdictions. This, according a new report by ABC News Australia. The explosion in activity appears to lead straight back to the media coverage of the event.

  8. Kandu helps kids learn to code, but don't call it an education app

    Learn code, and learn it early. That's the mantra among many in the entrepreneurial set, and there's no shortage of apps and initiatives designed to help breed a generation of young coders, from's "Hour of Code" to the children's iPad app Hopscotch.
