[Editor's note: This piece, based on my PandoMonthly interview with Julie Rice and Elizabeth Cutler, originally ran on Startups.co as part of an editorial collaboration with Pando aimed at sharing founders' struggles, challenges, and origin stories with millions of founders across America.] After nearly twenty years of covering the tech world, I’ve been able to interview most of the great entrepreneurs of our time.

He's back!

I found myself thinking about Michael Arrington the other day. Specifically, at a time when barely an hour can go by without a high profile media figure being accused of harassment or assault towards women, I found myself thinking how much Mike – a Pando investor, who Sarah fired from our board in 2012 - dodged a bullet.

The only metric that matters: Uber’s lead over Lyft is slipping, losses are mounting

On Tuesday, Federal Judge William Alsup delayed the Waymo/Uber trial, saying what the tech press, investors, and regulators should have been saying to Uber for years: “I can no longer trust the words of the lawyers for Uber in this case.

“I was working so hard, I was so exhausted and I was so invisible”

Caitlin Freeman-- my guest in this month’s “A Uterus Is a Feature Not a Bug” podcast--  met her husband James Freeman in next door stalls at the Berkeley farmer’s market.

Inside my week of declaring war on the patriarchy

[Editor's note: This piece, based on my PandoMonthly interview with Sheila Marcelo originally ran on Startups.co as part of an editorial collaboration with Pando aimed at sharing founders' struggles, challenges, and origin stories with millions of founders across America.] There are a lot of accomplishments in Sheila Marcelo’s official bio, not least of which is founding running the publicly traded Care.com.

Karma to Pishevar: You've been Sherved

Anyone wondering why Uber (and, god help us, Pando) investor Shervin Pishevar was suddenly ranting about smear campaigns and Vladamir Putin got a possible answer today...

There's so much that can go wrong for Snap before everything it's planning goes right.

My first reaction to the news that Snap suffered a four-hour long outage Tuesday was: Okay, but this is the Internet, where bad things can happen.

WeWork Elementary: Move fast and break kids

The best thing I can say about yesterday’s revelation that WeWork is starting an elementary school is… ...well, at least Uber isn’t starting an elementary school.

Netflix: Moral Like a Fox?

A man comes forward and says Spacey assaulted him when he was just 14 years old. Spacey’s initial defense was— astoundingly— I don’t remember and also, “I’m gay!
