  1. Look Who's Gawking: Inside Nick Denton's phony, hypocritical class war against tech workers

    This all-new Valleywag was conceived during the Occupy protests, when Gawker’s editors discovered that stories about a class war were just catnip for pageviews. And most of the Wall Streeters were mere millionaires -- just imagine how much Gawker's hipster readers would hate billionaires. Or billionaire nerds!

  2. The War Nerd: United Drones of Congo

    Last week the United Nations announced that it would deploy drones, or UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) in Eastern Congo. It doesn’t sound like much of a story, unless you’re Alex Jones, with his anti-UN paranoia, but this time there really is something nasty going on.

  3. Disruption vs Intransigence: A tale of two political parties

    From Occupy Wall Street protests two years ago in lower Manhattan to recent angst bubbling up against tech-industry gentrification in San Francisco, economic inequality is becoming the animating issue from coast to coast. Not surprisingly, then, inequality is concurrently becoming a deeply political story that exposes the two parties' internal dynamics and their contrasting attitudes toward change.

  4. The truth about Venezuela's "entrepreneurial" fat cats

    I probably wasn't the only person to be shocked to read the recent guest post, here on Pando, by the former CEO of the Venezuelan American Chamber of Commerce Antonio Herrera-Vaillant.

  5. Pierre Omidyar in 2009: "Anybody who publishes stolen info should help catch the thief"

    As regular readers will know, over the past few weeks, Pando has published arguments on both sides of the debate around the fact that Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras, the only two people with access to Snowden's NSA Secrets (TM), have both been hired by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar to run his new journalism site.

  6. The Everywhere Store: Civil libertarians welcome Amazon's drone army

    After 60 Minutes broke Amazon's ambitious plan for a drone-based delivery system, all sorts of hell broke loose in the bloggershpere.

  7. David and Paul talk Glenn and Pierre: "How do we know what he's not releasing? Fair question."

    It's something of an understatement to say that Glenn Greenwald and Pierre Omidyar's new journalism organisation has caused internal debate here at Pando.

  8. The journalist who hacked the old system

    With Edward Snowden becoming a leading candidate for Time magazine's Person of the Year, it is important to remember that he is the central character in not one but three distinct stories: 1) the story of what his disclosures tell us about the US government's surveillance system, 2) the story of what the treatment of him and the reporters publicizing his disclosures says about attitudes toward whistleblowing and First Amendment protections, and 3) the story of the rapidly changing power dynamics in the age of digital media.
