The dribs and drabs of news about the shakeup of Twitter's board last year has produced a confusing picture. The message I was hearing from sources while I was out on maternity leave amounted to: "Nothing to see here. Some people just decided to leave. That happens all the time. What's the big deal?"
For the past few weeks, a few facts about our lives have been clarified. The first is that the Internet is critically important to our way of life, and that freedom of expression is central to that. The second is that there are people who are not only willing, but also desire to restrict the freedom of expression and information that the internet enables.
I caught up with ZocDoc's CEO Cyrus Massoumi last week during his whirlwind trip up and down the West Coast. The company just opened operations in Seattle last monday and are opening operations in San Diego this Monday. In between, he popped in to see how things are going in San Francisco.
We've debated this a lot at PandoDaily this weekend, but I haven't been one of those bloggers chasing Twitter with torches and pitchforks over its controversial move to censor Tweets within certain territories when they receive an official take-down notice.
Now that it's over, I have to confess that I was quite surprised that CloudFlare was ever invited to the World Economic Forum's Annual Meeting.

Google has finally broken its silence on the Don't Be Evil Toolbar/Search Plus Your World scandal with Google Fellow and search chief Amit Singhal granting an exclusive interview to Danny Sullivan. If you haven't read it, go do so now.
For much of 2011, it looked like Android was crushing it. Google had brilliantly pushed its free mobile OS to every corner of the earth—you could pick up an Android phone from every manufacturer on every carrier at every price point, most often just as a consolation prize for signing a contract. Looking back, I’d peg Android’s high-water mark at around April Fool’s Day, when Fred Wilson declared Google’s OS to be the preeminent marketplace for mobile developers. Not only was Android nearing a majority share of the smartphone market, its rate of growth eclipsed that of every other platform. Meanwhile Apple’s growth appeared to have stalled; February 2011’s comScore data showed that even despite launching on Verizon, the iPhone was just barely holding on to its 25 percent market share.
