  1. Is the Silicon Valley Bubble back, or a bad thing if it is?

    Listed tech stocks seem to be deflating, although how long that's going to go on for is anyone's guess. But there's enough evidence that you can, if you so wish, argue that we're at the end of a bubble in tech valuations. Marc Andreessen* doesn't agree which is why he's still pumping money into the system. Noam Scheiber over at the New Republic has an interesting take on the whole argument, one that I find myself largely agreeing with.

  4. FCC's Tom Wheeler swears he'd never do a thing like kill the free Internet

    Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler is sick of you people griping about the agency's attempts to kill the free Internet. Don't you trust the FCC, which is better known for protecting the innocent masses from obscenities than for protecting consumers? Don't you believe that the agency that already threatened the free Internet by using the wrong words in 2002 and is more interested in semantics than ideals will be able to defend the Web?

  5. Rapt Studio: A San Francisco design firm tailored to the Internet age

    These days when someone tells you they are a designer, there’s really no telling what it is they actually do. There’s fashion design, web design, software design, game design, urban design, interior design, industrial design, graphic design, landscape design and a host of more abstract disciplines appended with the word ‘design’.

  8. SkillBridge is racing to become the freelance consultants' marketplace

    Finding the correct technical talent is hard enough for companies; hiring the right consultants is another issue altogether. There are big consulting firms out there such McKinsey & Company and Bain & Company. Acquiring the services of these firms, however, is quite often too expensive and burdensome for those that needs a quick stint from a seasoned consultant. Additionally, knowing how to find the best freelancers out there is another crapshoot unless you have the right contacts.
