Social/Video/Words for PandoDaily
@coreycrossfield Fixed the typo, thanks for pointing this out.
I don't think 500 Startups wants to "segregate" or divide people. They just want to highlight strong entrepreneurial role models from all backgrounds.

@HunterWalk My apologies, Looking back I think I misread your post. I'll switch out the link.
@Nunyabiz Thanks! Though watch out: I do occasionally take stances : )
3 weeks, 6 days ago on How high will San Francisco rent go? These data analysts may have the answer
@Joe Taylor that's a very important distinction. Judging by what they say it's by artist not song and I haven't heard anything to the contrary. I'll reach out to them.
3 months ago on What Spotify’s royalty numbers don’t tell us
@bgoldberg You raise some good points, however I do think cities should care about providing affordable housing. And San Francisco does! (as I noted in the song). Fair or not, I think it's instructive to think about why evictions under the Ellis Act are up, particularly at a time of huge prosperity for the city, and ask questions like, "Is all the wealth being created in San Francisco right now making life better for all its citizens? Is it making life worse for some of them?"

@ElPirata you're right that this issue merits a longer look at the pressures causing this statistic. But between the numerous reports of sexism/harassment within tech and such a low percentage of female founders, how is sexism not a factor?

@neoganda Sometimes it takes a few moments to load. You should see a scroller and some nodes and branches with company names and founder names. So we can do some testing, what browser and device are you using?
@adders We're working on rectifying the situation. Please see the email I just sent you. Thanks!

@adders Hello Adam, this is David Holmes, Pando's head of social. I sincerely apologize about this oversight. I've sent you an email about this and taken down your photo. Please feel free to email me back at firstname.lastname@example.org
@AbhiroopBasu ha you got me. I'm not an audiophile so I didn't know. At least I didn't say Beats by Dre.
6 months, 4 weeks ago on Why Silicon Valley should save drive-in movies
@123gregor That's an interesting point about the Weinsteins. I remember hearing a great spot on NPR about the box office success of Moonrise Kingdom, suggesting that studios should start placing lots of small bets on cheap independent films instead of a few huge bets on big budget action flicks. Adam Penenberg also has a good piece today about "the end of the blockbuster": http://pandodaily.com/2013/07/22/the-end-of-the-hollywood-blockbuster/
