Last week a friend offered me a ticket to Sunday's 49ers game as a congratulations for starting PandoDaily.
Thanks to Twitter's early(-ish) scaling problems, there are few more recognizable images of web 2.0 than the Fail Whale. But what's less well known is how the iconic graphic came in to being. Or indeed how close it came to being the Fail Elephant.
I love this story in the New York Times. I know we mentioned it in the PandoTicker yesterday, but it deserves to be highlighted twice because its implications are that important to understand for America and its future for tech innovation.
It had to happen sooner or later. Paul Carr had to get something about the startup business right.
Looking around the Web today, there's been a mixture of we-killed-SOPA high-fiving and crestfallen realism that the bill isn't really dead. As long as there are movie studios and lobbyists, it'll just pop up in another form like some horrible game of whack-a-mole.
A few of you-- very few-- have asked that Paul and I bring back our "Why Is this News?" show from TCTV.
When you hear about a tech startup that has grossed $5,000,000 in sales, operates internationally, and connects people with common interests, you might imagine a new virtual game or social network. TeachersPayTeachers is neither of those things. Instead, it is a marketplace for teachers to sell their lesson plans to other teachers, and make a tidy profit off of their work.
The other day I pulled up a Flash-heavy site on an iPad, and it loaded up faster than you can say “banned from the App Store.” In fact, the site—Mercedes-Amg.com, which is so annoying it’ll put you off from buying a luxury car forever—ran faster on the iPad than it does on my monster desktop at home. Next I loaded up an HD movie trailer, and it began to play instantly. As I scrubbed from the beginning of the video to the end, the images kept pace with my finger, showing me exactly where I was in the clip along the way.
