Announcing My Candidacy for President of Facebook

Dear Citizens of Facebook: Facebook is much more than Mark Zuckerberg’s server farms and his army of coders. Facebook is the most effective means today for people to communicate with each other and to form networks for collaboration beyond national borders. Facebook is an unprecedented international network of people who could make a tremendous contribution to solving the challenges of our age, if permitted. The time has come for us to declare our independence from the empire that controls us. The Internet is often conceptualized as a series of separate layers that range from Layer 1, the physical connections of wires and cables that support our communications, to Layer 7, which is the operation of applications over the Internet

Dudes Are Sending This Creepy AF Tinder Message, Thanks To A Pickup Artist

Women on Tinder, beware. At the recommendation of a pickup artist, men are asking women to sleep with them using the creepiest form letter of all time. In said message, these dudes claim to be “genuine guy[s],” not “creep[s]” or “pervert[s].” Because nothing says “genuine” like a pre-drafted sexual invitation, am I right, ladies? On Feb. 15, the Instagram account @feminist_tinder  shared a screenshot of a message sent in by a woman who said she and her friends had received the same message on Tinder “word for word.”  “Hey, I know this is kinda weird and pushy haha, but would you like to have sex with me? I’m not a creep or a pervert, just a genuine guy

San Francisco Entrepreneur Suggests Removing ‘Riffraff’ As Homeless Solution

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Martin Shkreli of gentrification. Justin Keller , a self-described wealthy tech company founder and entrepreneur living in San Francisco for the past three years, has had enough of the homeless roaming his city. He published an open letter to Mayor Ed Lee and Police Chief Greg Suhr on Feb. 15, decrying the “riffraff” walking his streets and bemoaning a commute that forces him to see the “despair of homeless people to and from my way to work every day.” “I’ve been living in SF for over three years, and without a doubt it is the worst it has ever been,” he begins. “Every day, on my way to, and from work, I see people sprawled across the sidewalk, tent cities, human feces, and the faces of addiction. The city is becoming a shanty town … Worst of all, it is unsafe.” Keller’s letter starts off with some legitimate concerns over the state of San Francisco

The Bottom Line: ‘Private Citizens’ By Tony Tulathimutte

If a friend or a relative or a paranoid new love interest ransacked your apartment, dredging up the diary you kept in college but never bothered to throw away, the collection of beer caps or stamps or thingamabobs, the extra-lacy underwear, would he be surprised by what he found? It’s a question on dating sites everywhere, a litmus test for secretiveness. But the truth is, no matter how much we strive for honesty — factual or emotional — most of us have sides of ourselves that seldom leave the confines of our own cagey heads, or at least our own search histories. Often, if Tony Tulathimutte’s new novel Private Citizens is to be believed, those selves-within-ourselves can be pretty nasty. His debut book follows four friends who’ve somewhat begrudgingly reunited in San Francisco a few years after graduating from Stanford. Will is a programmer whose porn addiction could only be cured by his unrelenting obsession with his newish girlfriend Vanya, a super-hot paraplegic girl who devotes most of her time and conversational energy to establishing herself in the startup world.

Kanye West’s Album Has Been Pirated 500,000 Times, Website Finds

Tidal’s not the only one streaming Kanye West’s new album. Turns out pirates are too. “The Life of Pablo” has been illegally downloaded more than a half a million times since its Thursday release, according to an estimate by website TorrentFreak. That astounding figure comes after the rapper vowed his album would “never be for sale” and would only be available on the music streaming service, which requires a subscription fee to use.  My album will never never never be on Apple. And it will never be for sale…

Delta Went Above And Beyond For This Breastfeeding Mom Of Triplets

A breastfeeding mom shared words of praise after Delta Air Lines went above and beyond to accommodate her need to pump. Mom Jenna Evans posted a now-viral thank you note on Delta’s Facebook page . “As a breastfeeding mother to triplets, it’s important that I not miss a breast-pumping session, especially when traveling,” she wrote in the post. “Yesterday, two flight attendants, Kaitlin K and Loretta, on my flight from Atlanta to Dallas-Love Field, allowed me to sit in an empty first class seat for more space and privacy while I pumped in flight,” the mom continued. “They offered me snacks and provided TONS of water during my pumping session.” Evans added that she received similar treatment on her return flight to back to Atlanta and thanked that flight attendant as well.

Are Big Data Career Paths Attracting More Women to Tech?

The famous German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche, once said: “That which does not kill us, makes us stronger.” While this quote holds an enormous amount of truth, I find these words especially relevant to the way I feel about women who work in tech. “Women in Tech” have always been outnumbered by men, but this disproportion could actually be encouraging more females to enter the tech workforce, specifically in Big Data and statistics related fields. Taking a Closer Look As a young woman who has worked in the tech-startup industry for the past few years, I would think that more females would want to be a part of shaping the future of technology, yet statistics illustrate the opposite. In fact, the amount of women in STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) is dismal, and rather embarrassing.

You are What You (Android)Wear

Once upon a time there were two AndroidWear smartwatches. One boasted a rich Swiss heritage, while the other was bred from solid Chinese stock. Their tale has become legend as others have sought to bask in their glory, but, alas, their worst fear was realized: Although their heritage differed, they were, technically, equal. Tag Heuer and Huawei have pretty much set the standard for other rivals to the Apple watch and, truthfully, have become only two of the bevy of watch and tech companies to adapt the Android and iOS operating systems to gain the valuable space on your wrist. So, why are we focusing on these two companies
