Silk Road Prosecutors Ask Judge to 'Send a Message' In Ulbricht Sentencing | WIRED
[ politics involved ] Ahead of Ulbricht’s sentencing Friday, prosecutors in his case have sent the judge a 16-page letter asking that Ulbricht be given “a lengthy sentence, one substantially above the mandatory minimum.” And one of the reasons for that harsh sentence, the Department of Justice attorneys argue, is to “send a clear message” to anyone who would follow in Ulbricht’s footsteps and create the next Dark Web drug market. [...] “Although the Government has achieved some successes in combating these successor dark markets, they continue to pose investigative challenges for law enforcement,” reads the letter. “To the extent that would-be imitators may view the risk of being caught to be low, many are still likely to be deterred if the stakes are sufficiently high.” That argument ignores plenty of studies that show that long prison sentences don’t tend to deter crime. // &! bit.ly/1PVEvgk &! youtu.be/BvC9oDlT8mM &! youtu.be/weN0yyTSk4I

The Bebo Lawsuit, and the Tragedy of Departed Founders Who Can’t Let Go | PandoDaily
In my early twenties, as I’ve written before in painful detail, I was kicked out of several companies that I co-founded. Like after any relationship gone sour, I decided the best approach was to simply move on and never look back. (Note: I was less good following that advice when actual relationships went sour). Really that’s the only sensible approach. To many entrepreneurs, the company that made their name and fortune is like a first-born child. Suddenly finding oneself no longer intimately involved in its upbringing is impossibly difficult to deal with, especially when its new parents are — to one’s own mind at least — mistreating it. But there’s a difference between a child and a company: You can put a price on a company. And many entrepreneurs, including Michael Birch have done precisely that.

Why mobile apps are a step backward | InfoWorld
It isn't only native apps that foreclose these possibilities. JavaScript frameworks seldom map application state to URLs. Either way, the URLs still exist because, under the covers, native or not, these are still Internet applications. Open up an HTTP debugger and you'll see those URLs fly by. But they are increasingly unlikely to map cleanly to application states or to be accessible to users who want to save or exchange those states.

RedShark News - Could VP9 be the codec for 4K Blu-Ray?
http://www.redsharknews.com/distribution/item/1373-vp9-codec-rides-to-the-aid-of-4k - Google have oddly found themselves in a great position to capitalise on the current 4K fervour with their VP9 codec. Google weren’t really thinking about 4K when they developed VP9, it just happened to be a fact of the way the codec was written that it supports up to 16K video! In fact when asked earlier last year if they would be supporting 4K the Google folks appeared somewhat confused by why anyone would want to do that, as obviously they had been designing VP9 with YouTube in mind and were more thinking that this would be a great way of making 720p YouTube streams really viable on normal internet connections.

The Secret Shame of an Unacquired Techie -- Daily Intelligencer
[via https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=7559540 ] She was the only female at her company, a designer who had been with the start-up from the beginning and had overseen its design and marketing, yet had gotten left out when the company was sold to Google for its workers, in what's known as an acqui-hire. "I feel like my world just ended," she wrote. The thread quickly became the talk of Silicon Valley. It was seeming proof that even within the happy-go-lucky world of tech start-ups, there are winners and losers, and more often than not, the losers in situations like these are the designers, who are more likely to be female than their engineer counterparts, and whose "soft" skills are seen as less valuable than coding chops. [The] start-up decided to sell itself to Google as a last resort, after failing to find traction in the market. [FOR G IT IS A public nightmare!]

Will Foursquare CEO Dennis Crowley Finally Get It Right? | Fast Company | Business Innovation
It's a compelling prospect: If Google has built a $294 billion business based on your explicit searches, Foursquare's bet is that the data behind your implicit intent are just as lucrative. [...] If you check in at Walgreens, should we show you an ad for toothpaste? We're not sure," he says. "Does that dilute the experience?" [...] And Crowley is well aware of what's become of him: His identity is his company; he is only as mature as it is.

Jeff Bezos Bought The Washington Post For One Thing: Distribution ⚙ Co.Labs ⚙ code + community
[surrounding yourself with smarter people] In some sense you wouldn’t even be human anymore. People like Jeff are better regarded as hyper-intelligent aliens with a tangential interest in human affairs . . . Trust me folks, I saw this happen time and again, for years. Jeff Bezos has all these incredibly intelligent, experienced domain experts surrounding him at huge meetings, and on a daily basis he thinks of shit that they never saw coming. It’s a guaranteed facepalm fest. [...] Purpose-built distribution networks for different kinds of content are beginning to solidify into infrastructure, just as e-commerce did 10 years ago. And if we’ve learned anything about Bezos, it’s that he loves to own his own infrastructure and leverage it into new kinds of business we can’t even imagine right now.

Tim Armstrong Prepares AOL For a Fragmenting Web
When he talks about the first two, he talks about “scaled content” and “scaled advertising,” yet he is very much pursuing a niche content strategy married to a highly targeted, brand advertising approach. AOL is already going down this path with its collection of MediaGlow sites (which include, Engadget, TMZ, and Love.com). We’ve called this the “Toyota strategy” because it consists of creating standalone online media properties which appeal to niche audiences much like magazines used to do in the world of print media.

Betting on the Real-Time Web - BusinessWeek
- The current innovation wave on the web is; realtime and social-everything.
.
But there's a method behind the mania. In just the past couple of years, several developments have come together to make the Web more of a real-time experience: ubiquitous high-speed Internet connections; a growing number of mobile devices such as the iPhone with full Web browsers; and new Web technologies that enable instant transmission of messages and data. That mix has made always-on, real-time communications easy and addictive. The iconic example, Twitter, attracted 44.5 million people to its Web site in June, plus perhaps an equivalent number who gain access to its services via other sites and software. Facebook's 250 million active users, whose instant status updates are a key part of its appeal, share more than 1 billion videos, photos, and other content each week.

Why Schmidt Had To Go
Google wants to diminish the importance of any single computing device in favor of Web apps which sit in the cloud and are accessible from all devices—mobile phones, Macbooks, Dell laptops, or whatever. As much as is physically possible, it wants to replace the operating system with the Web.

Ultimately, that is a bigger threat to Apple than Microsoft ever was.
