  1. Uber sued (again), this time over driver data breach

    Uber is fighting perhaps the battle of its life in US Federal courts over whether to classify its driver as employees or contractors. But a new labor class action lawsuit filed in San Francisco last Thursday could still land the company in hot water regardless of which side that larger decision lands.

  2. Nations might not adopt pure bitcoin, but IBM's blockchain-based alternative has a chance

    Imagine you’re a disruptive new technology and you’re looking for mainstream support among consumers, businesses, and regulators. What’s the best endorsement you could get? You’d be hard pressed to do better than bitcoin did last week, getting a nod of approval from IBM.

    We’ve seen the power of platforms like Twitter and YouTube to empower citizen journalists and bring attention to the plights of the oppressed around the world. Twitter has the benefit of being real-time, something that proved crucial during uprisings like the Arab Spring and in recent protests in Ferguson, MO.

  7. SignalFx exits stealth with $28.5M in backing, promises Facebook-caliber systems monitoring off the shelf

    As a budding startup, it can be challenging to say the least to hire the best and brightest technical talent in this industry.
