@ade_oshineye the 3 primary mobile & PC browser vendors Apple, Google & Microsoft. I'd throw Mozilla in there although their influence wanes@arcware Google Chrome on iOS is the same browser engine as Safari. I'm quite sure Microsoft's diversity mix for non-tech is consistent with college graduation demographics the talk of the Open Web but reality is our web experience is mostly defined by 3 multi-billion dollar companies I learned that at Google coworkers can nominate you for a peer bonus of $150 if you do something cool.Nice. - @mdowd there are companies for whom risk of data breach outweighs value of the data. Google isnt one

Key takeaway from reddit shutdown is the CEO doesn't know value of key employees or how the site works. Very bad sign
Reddit continues to be a slow motion train wreck as a business and how not to manage a social media site

Difference of 1-2 clicks to complete a task is the difference between your startup being worth billions versus worth $0 #snapchat #instagram"How side projects saved our startup" by - <= great intro to content marketing for startups@deray indeed.

Zero? Nada? Zilch? the future tech blogs as a business category will be as absurd as the idea that blog search engines & RSS readers were billion $ productsI can understand paid subscriptions to tech insights from @stratechery but why pay for 24/7 Uber/GOOG/FB bashing? malware behavior is preventing users from changing it from defaults set by an app. Setting defaults with user consent not malwareQuite sad that after all the value it created, the only way to monetize Java has been by changing search defaults -
