  3. "Silicon Valley"'s Season 2 finale finally balances the best and the worst of the modern tech industry

    Having spent the last week reporting from Bonnaroo and helping to put on the tech conference-cum-whiskey party Pandoland in Nashville, you'll have to forgive me for filing my review of Silicon Valley's Season 2 finale five whole days after it aired. Not that the broader sphere of cultural criticism was in some dire need of another blogger's recap of a television show. But the season's tenth and final episode, "Two Days of the Condor," holds special significance for Pando, as the fate of the show's protagonist became tied up with a subplot that echoes one of this site's most-read and most-important stories.

    It didn’t get much attention, but eBay just quietly unloaded its 28.4 percent stake in Craigslist, putting to rest one of the most sordid episodes in Silicon Valley, in which eBay executives — including First Look Media publisher Pierre Omidyar and HP chief Meg Whitman — were directly implicated in corporate spying, stealing secrets, and exploiting Craigslist’s anti-capitalist idealism.

  8. Uber's drivers are employees, not "contractors": California labor commission ruling

    Uber’s business model—skim profits off drivers, while avoiding the expenses that come with hiring drivers as employees—just suffered a major blow: the California labor commission has just ruled that Uber’s drivers are, in fact, employees, not contractors. Uber, which has seen its valuation soar to over $50 billion, can no longer claim that it is just a nifty little app that happens to pair up micro-entrepreneurial drivers and consumers, thereby avoiding the expenses and laws that other transportation and logistics companies have to bear.
