So very sad to hear about the passing of @swildstrom. He was always so kind to me. A great loss for tech writing.

Retweeted by Om Malik@asymco who is organizing this conference? They should invite @everyweargames for this event. One of @trueventures companiesThis! @gigastacey @jonathanmayer @FCC not without a massive public outcry. I am waiting for the other shoe to drop, by the way 😜@KarlBode @gigastacey @jonathanmayer thankfully I don't have to pretend like many journalists to be objective about @FCC & its hoodwinking@KarlBode @gigastacey @jonathanmayer how much is this just to appease the voters and not do anything. I stopped trusting @FCC long time agoYou know big brother is watching. Do you self censor yourself?Someday, when you have your own space flight company, you can be a part of this thread.

@pammilpr agreed :) one person's ugly is another's stir fryFirst world problems! No seriously! @hblodget i think @mathewi was talking about Germans embracing the ad-blocking tech in a big way and hurting the pubs a bunchJust because they bought @hblodget expertise doesn't mean they become smart about the Internet. thoughts on the new @wordpressdotcom and what it means cc @photomatt#win you are a good man.Well done team @automattic releases a new desktop Mac app, code named Calypso.

Retweeted by Om MalikSquare rolls out readers to accept Apple Pay I saw one in action this weekend @Sightglass can't believe Google has not done this@TimOBrien @nirkaissar @Bfly Tim you are way kind. Curious yes, smart not so much@nirkaissar @TimOBrien @Bfly great piece by the way. I covered GDRs - information was way inefficient at that time :)With Pfizer/Allergan at hand, time to revisit Allan Sloan's epic takedown of tax inversions
Retweeted by Om Malik@TimOBrien @nirkaissar @Bfly I wonder if this has to do with the rise of alogrithms markets, that are driven by events, not fundamentals
The counterpoint is a lot of Throat clearing without any first hand knowledge of details. I trust @WSJ on this one a blog post summarizing everything coming soon I hope?What was the outcome. comments good or bad? Yes!

@paulmwatson @hunterwalk @Jessicalessin it is utter nonsense. Good reporters do their job well, have empathy and don't write pufferyCorollary: every VC should have worked for a startup from ground level. Better yet started one! to do it right, stop playing PR games and report the facts, learn and educate yourself. Don't be a pushover well done means well reported stories, that don't always fit the narrative people want you to hearZ self serving to say that you need to work at a startup. I would say knowing your job & doing it well is @gigastacey @lizgannes didn't run a startup. Just knew what was important as a reporter - reporting would argue that calling more than two pr-approved sources, reading archival material and learning about industry @photomatt @IrishSoftware lol@om IT IS MY INNATE POWER. BOW BEFORE ME, TYPERS OF THE TWITTERWEB.
Retweeted by Om Malik@pkedrosky I never argue with mom, god, you and the Internet. Learned it the hard way, I lack ability to disagreeHey @photomatt did you change your last name? @pkedrosky good news, we should all stop writing because you know delete-key-future. (I was looking for an excuse)What authors or journalists do you read in order to get a grasp on the future? Who would you like to learn more from?

Save money. Look smart! is time for @AppleMusic to make an app for Beats Radio, which is the only reason to use "music store" @katiefehren you should do a kickstarter so we can support the work you are doing. it is easiest way for me to sign up with a check. :-)@AlexSalkever 10% churn on NFLX and 40% on HuluCisco buys yet another conferencing software maker Acano for $700 million | Still can't make new products 😜 shoe brand claims to have built the 'sneaker of the future' via mashableswhy does it have such high churn though Yup, & 2 players could buy YHOO without taking a tax hit selling those BABA shares: TWTR (loss carryforwards) & Alibaba itself.
