    How tech’s lack of empathy is demonizing Silicon Valley

    A scene from the HBO series Silicon Valley

    A scene from the HBO series ‘Silicon Valley’

    Silicon Valley is in danger of becoming the next ‘Wall Street,’ the villainous epicenter of America’s heartless financial industry – a magnet for ambitious bankers bound for greed and glory.

    So concludes Om Malik, the highly respected founder and former senior writer for GigaOM, now a partner in the San Francisco venture capital firm True Ventures, writing in this week’s The New Yorker.

      Similar to graphene, new material scales like silicon

      InSe moleculeResearchers in the UK have developed a new ultra-thin material, Indium Selenide (InSe), that has silicon-like semiconductor properties that make it ideal for creating super-fast electronic devices.

      InSe is similar to graphene, consisting of a naturally thin body that allows scaling at nanometre dimensions. Also similar to silicon, InSe has the properties of a semiconductor.

        Homage to Kickstarter at London Design Museum

        There’s nothing like a visit to the art world to remind us that great design sometimes is kickstarted by mere strokes across space – by a genius.

        Something like that happened in the UK when a young startup asked: 

        What if you could use a box of crayons and brushes instead of a soldering iron to create circuits for components?

        It turns out that you can, and Bare Conductive’s Electric Paint, a company launched on Kickstarter – is showing the way with a curious high-tech pencil box that allows makers and explorers of all ages to get creative building circuits using techniques that swap smoking-flux-and-lead for pens, brushes, and stencils.

          EBITDA? Isn’t that an exotic, deadly disease?

          By David Meister | November 19, 2016

          No, it’s not a disease, although I’ve been ill at ease about how it’s been used and abused.

          EBITDA is an acronym that stands for: Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization. It’s a measure of Operating Profit, or Operating Cash Flow, or Cash Flow Available for other corporate financial obligations, like debt service, capital investments, and taxes.
