BUMMER! I couldn’t be less bullish on cannabis startups. And the venture industry seems to agree

Hold on: Is the National Cannabis Industry Association high? This article is going to piss off a lot of libertarian pals of mine, but lately, I’ve noticed that the only people in California that I talk to who aren’t freaked out about what a Donald Trump presidency could mean for them are weed activists.

We stand with TechDirt, and so should you

My sincere apologies if it seems like an “all Peter Thiel all the time” day on Pando today. Believe me when I say no one’s fingers burn as painfully as mine when writing his name.

Thiel confirms Palantir will not help build Trump's Muslim database

Earlier this week, the New York Times’ Maureen Dowd interviewed Peter Thiel (a Pando investor, for crying out loud) about his support for Donald Trump.

Brian Chesky's unbelievable journey

[Editor's note: This piece, based on my PandoMonthly interview with Brian Chesky, 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.] Brian Chesky’s dad wasn’t thrilled he had decided to go to art school.

What we all missed when Marissa Mayer became Yahoo CEO

And so the sad slow moving car crash that was Yahoo is almost at an end. The deal with Verizon is still in process, the remaining assets will be renamed the much-mocked “Altaba,” and in a shock/not-shock announced this week, Marissa Mayer will step down from the board.

No shock: Venture capital didn’t crash in 2016. Here’s why many insiders wish it would.

Remember early 2016? Tech stocks had one of the worst starts since the dot com bust. No one thought Donald Trump would get the nomination, let alone the Presidency.

Worried about Facebook's coziness with Trump? Watch what Alex Stamos does next

Interesting piece on Re/Code this morning about the “secret meeting” of Valley engineers who fear that Trump is very, very bad for tech.

Elon Musk: Too Crazy to be Lucky

[Editor's note: This piece, based on my PandoMonthly interview with Elon Musk, 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.] We can quantifiably say that Elon Musk has been the best tech entrepreneur of the modern era.

“You can’t hotfix a bridge”: Christina Allen on the confidence you gain from building

Christina Allen is a builder. She moved to Silicon Valley in the 1980s. Before it was a gold rush. Before everyone knew what “VCs” were.

In Praise of Things That Just Work: Goodreads

Lots of chatter today about Amazon's potential purchase of American Apparel, just days after a similar bursts of chatter about the company's move to open even more bricks and mortar book stores, just after the announcement of their checkout-free retail experiment, not long after they rebooted Top Gear and trounced the BBC's own version of the same show...

M&Apalooza: 2017 will be a year of put up or shut up in Silicon Valley

It’s the first week of January and everyone not on a plane to CES (that’s us!) is making predictions (that’s also us!

The most no brainer move of 2017: Medium should buy Patreon

 Yesterday, Evan Williams of Medium made a hard announcement, based on a hard choice: He is laying off one-third of the company and admitting in hindsight they made a wrong turn last year when they doubled down on outside content powered by an ad-driven model...

Failing New York Times says Trump will regulate big tech. WRONG!!!!!

As part of my new year’s resolution to avoid having a heart attack before age 40, I’ve all but stopped reading news online.

How Uber could combat its single biggest challenge when it comes to the “existential” threat of self-driving cars

I’m going to be completely honest with you: This post came to me in a dream over the holidays. Yep. I dream about startup strategy and venture capital.

Happy New Year! Unless you work at an ad-funded news outlet (in which case, I'm sorry for your loss)

Happy New Year! I hope you had an enjoyable festive break and are back, relaxed and refreshed, ready for the end of the world.

2017 offers almost no hope, unless you're itching for an IPO

Everyone is glad to see 2016 go.  Turn on the TV or radio, or check some newsfeed, and you can't escape someone pointing out how shitty a year it was.

When I worked at BusinessWeek, I used to love meetings for one simple reason: The conference room was flanked by framed covers written by people in the Silicon Valley bureau.

Hello from London! I’m back in my homeland for the first time in two years, visiting family and renewing my European passport before the end of the world.

Silicon Valley has fallen

Like you, I’m still processing last week’s meeting between tech leaders and Donald Trump. I’m still coming to terms with seeing Sheryl “Lean In” Sandberg sitting behind her bottle of Trump water, an arms’ reach from a guy who boasted of sexually assaulting women.
