Sarah, B&N got the early adoption - they just haven't held on. That' not because the new supply chain rules are less than magical. It's because of competition innovating on features and price.
Why buy a Nook over a Nexus 7 for the same price? Just get the Nexus, and download the Nook reader.
B&N needs to continue to use that magical supply chain and innovate new products. The market demands it.

Tech makes things more efficient. Humans have been used to handle inefficient work. Now we'll have to move up the ladder and handle the work that the machines can't do.
A teen won't be needed to sell tickets. But now she'll be free to make themed popcorn, or personally find you a seat in a crowded theater, or simply greet you and a date with a smile. The human stuff.

Sarah, if a pregnant executive asks for 6 weeks off at a tech company, do you think Mayer's actions will negatively affect how her colleagues see her?

Andreessen's explanation of why Silicon Valley is not in a bubble has never made any sense. They are plenty of investors throwing good money at bad startups like Color, Airtime, Quora, and Asana because they don't want to get left behind.

12 months ago on Facebook: Seriously, How Did This Become Such A Mess?
There is no longer a bubble because Facebook's IPO just popped it. The thousands who purchased at $38+ are going to lose a third of their money.
Related tech stocks are taking a hit too, and won't recover.
Spooked VCs will become impatient and demand companies to flip, now that an IPO is not an option.
Google and the other giants will aquhire zombie and toy companies for cheap, and shut down the services.
The Valley will be littered with empty offices, and laid off non-engineers.
Talent will shun incubators for direct hires, knowing the good times are over.
And we'll all tell stories of that brief moment when Facebook was $42 a share.
