Ha! When I saw this article I couldn't help but to roll my eyes. As antiquated as their online UI/UX/Tools are for businesses, working on an internal Bitcoin is the LAST thing these guys should be spending their time on.

Historic! I couldn't be happier about this.
Obama has finally earned his 2009 Nobel Peace Prize ;)
Jokes aside, I am so proud to call him my President.

Ha, got a chuckle at the not-so-subtle dig at Uber. This is a significant partnership win for Lyft.

“We’ve spent a lot of time with (Lyft) over the last few months and have been so deeply impressed with their business model, their values and approach of building a business the right way,” Starbucks ... Read more

I can't find the chart but photo apps are one of the top verticals receiving VC money. There's a ton of these well-funded apps in the dead-pool. We're hearing about this one b/c their ill fated decision to turn down an acquisition from Twitter. I always viewed Frontback as a niche photo app that by ... Read more

A user comment below from a related NyTimes article that resonates (nyti.ms/1MafhXf).

I know the good Senator Schumer has struggled with his decision and is voting his conscience. However, he needs - and we need - to think deep and hard about whether his conscience is guiding ... Read more

I can't even find the right words to express the emotional weight that I feel when reading of such cruel and senseless human behavior.

I'll say this about the founder of this app--she's been at it for a while and seems to have no quit in her. If nothing else I respect Lori Cheek's determination.

I get that he's an easy target with lax security, but if BLM activists are going to hijack the stage/mic from any candidate (based on their positions/record), I would think that Sanders is the last person on your list. Clearly not. While I support BLM's goals (or "demands" as they call it - blackliv ... Read more

From his newly appointed press secretary: Symone Sanders said the campaign would be putting out a detailed plan on the issue soon, but would not give a timeline. She said one key to winning support from the African-American community will be educating people on "who Bernie Sanders is."

"After reaching 1,000,000 unique conversations in early June, the app now reports that just two months later, over 5,000,000 conversations have been started by women."

Ahhh, politics and money. They go together like ham and cheese.

Schumer's stated desire for going back to the negotiating table with China, Russia, France, England and Germany to re-negotiate a "better" deal w/ Iran is not naïveté. He, the Dems seasoned to be Senate leader, knows fully well that t ... Read more

Proud to be a member of an org mentioned in this article (NIAC). Also loving the work of orgs like JStreet. As progressiveness continues to expand in our country, pro-peace organizations like JStreet and NIAC will hopefully continue to grow their following...and political clout.

Touché...

"Find someone you know in here? Keep in mind the site is a scam with thousands of fake female profiles," said the post. "Chances are your man signed up on the world's biggest affair site, but never had one. He just tried to. If that distinction matters."
