The “anti-Anne-Marie Slaughter”: Samantha Ettus is on a mission to convince all moms to work

This week’s guest on our “Uterus is a Feature Not a Bug” podcast is Samantha Ettus, an author and radio show host who has interviewed hundreds of working moms for her new book “The Pie Life: A Guilt-Free Recipe for Success and Satisfaction.” I caught Ettus in the middle of a jam-packed San Francisco leg of her book tour, where she’s trying to go speak at as many companies as she can.

Live from Las Vegas: Attorney Dayvid Figler talks election rigging and Trump's weird hotel

Court document shows the feds are just grabbing suspects' hands to unlock their fingerprint iPhones

Here’s a fun story from Forbes this morning. A newly unearthed court filing shows that California-based Department of Justice agents requested court authorization to force suspects to unlock their fingerprint-secured phones during a search. Yes, force them.

Apple’s retreat from cars is another reason Uber should go public while Lyft is its only rival

It’s almost like making cars is hard. That shouldn’t be a surprise. What is a surprise is that that’s come as such a shock to tech leaders.

Uber apparently wants some rivals to believe an IPO is coming soon. But why?

About a week ago, I started hearing rumors that, contrary to what I’ve been arguing for the better part of a year, Uber was planning to go public in the first half of 2017.

People like Ron Conway have always had the money and power. Now they have the votes too

After rumors that NastyGal was seeking a buyer, new rumors emerge of a $40 million cram-down round

NastyGal -- no matter what has befallen it in recent years -- was an insane success story from its humble roots of an eBay shop built by a young woman with an uncanny sense of style, business acumen, and understanding of who her “girl” is.

Good news! Twitter isn’t the new Yahoo. It’s failing in a completely new way

For at least a year now, it’s been pretty easy to call Twitter the new Yahoo. A company that was core to the development and evolution of the consumer Internet, one beloved by many Valley insiders, and still a valuable asset.

This week's lesson: Keep your company's awfulness in a detachable silo

For anyone wondering if karma is real, the past week has offered plenty of supporting evidence. On Monday we learned that, contrary to earlier reporting, Univision’s purchase of Gawker Media did not actually include the company’s most toxic brand: itself.

Four days inside Iceland’s working, single mom paradise (where sexism still persists)

Pierre Omidyar's The Intercept gets well-deserved award from group funded by.... Pierre Omidyar

My issues with Pierre Omidyar’s $250m journalism startup, The Intercept, are well documented. Many media organizations, including Pando, have investors but the fact that the Intercept is 100% owned by a single tech billionaire creates an insane risk of conflicts of interest.
