The biggest e-commerce IPOs and company sales of the last few years prove you can succeed by going for mass appeal. And, in fact, that you probably should if you are going to be raising tens of millions of dollars or more at big valuations. [Read More]

Over the course of the past few weeks, the media world has been experiencing a bit of a wake-up call about rampant sexual harassment throughout the industry after an anonymously sourced list of allegations circulated on Google Drive. At the same time, growing numbers of women have been using the hashtag #MeToo to talk about their own experiences of harassment—including in Silicon Valley, where the culture can be so bad that allegations startup UploadVR had a "kink room" were no less disgusting, but not exactly surprising.

Sarah Keayes / Stringer / Getty Images All the recent focus on sexism and gender discrimination in Silicon Valley has obscured another long-festering diversity problem for the tech industry: ageism. Now job hiring website Indeed is shining a spotlight on the issue. The company recently conducted a survey of 1,011 currently employed US tech workers. The survey results indicate how little age diversity there is in tech and how little tech companies are doing to change the situation. One glaring finding: 46% of respondents said that the average employee age at their company was between... [Read More]

How Silicon Valley Makes Everybody Angry Of all the fantasies about how the internet would improve our lives, the notion that connectivity automatically brings people together is the most alluring.

I was looking forward to "The Infernal Internship Of Mark Beaks!" because I was deeply curious how DuckTales would incorporate more contemporary concepts, perspectives, and industries into its orbit. So far we've had two episodes with newcomer Lena, a character who's teenage "too cool for school" vibe could be grating, but is mostly held in check by Kimiko Glenn's measured voice work and the implication of an emotionally-troubled connection with the evil Magica de Spell—family troubles with a fantastical twist. (I like her well enough, but I have noticed she seems to be a bit divisive.) Introducing Mark Beaks... [Read More]

REUTERS/Bobby Yip China's tech industry isn't as exclusive as Silicon Valley's, but it's still hard for expats to connect to the right person. The work culture in Chinese tech is intense, reflected by slogans like "996," which means "working from 9 am to 9 pm, six days a week." The Chinese tech industry has the unique advantage of having a strong manufacturing base. There appears to be a reverse brain-drain, with many people who have worked at big tech companies globally returning to the Chinese market. Ten years ago, people undoubtedly trained their eyes...

Steve Bannon, President Trump's former chief strategist, expanded his "season of war against a GOP establishment" Friday night by ripping party leaders and adding a new economic enemy - "the lords of Silicon Valley." In a stream-of-consciousness, 41-minute speech before 500 people at the California Republican Party convention, Bannon, who has returned to his post as chairman of Breitbart News, lumped the valley in with the "lobbyists, consultants, and corporatists and globalist elites" as part of the political establishment ruining the country.
