Great stats about venture-backed tech companies valued at over $1B (aka unicorns).

Interesting highlights to note: 76% have past entrepreneurial experience, 50% are co-founded by immigrants, 50% of founders went to a top 10 school, 31% are SaaS, 19% of founders are college drop-outs, 17% are pivots, and 10% have a female CEO.

Over the next year or so, we’ll see whether apps like Yik Yak, After School and Whisper will pivot, persevere or disappear.

#ReadyPlayerOne, written by Ernest Cline and narrated by Wil Wheaton is now going to be directed by Steven Spielberg. Parzival's going to be a household name in the real world.

Excited to see OASIS on the big screen.

i agree. not allowing pro cameras in 2015 is silly. one thing is to differentiate "media" from attendees; but nonsense to restrict the use of mirrorless and DSLRs.

"I think we did not make Swarm as fun as the old Foursquare was— we screwed up a couple things."

Yep.
While you were earning badges, Foursquare was building a location layer to the Web. No wonder it’s a takeover target.

Tonight in San Francisco I ordered a sandwich at a restaurant near Union Square and sat at a table outside.

As I was getting ready to eat, a homeless man with long hair and a grey beard sat on my table, right in front of me.

He was wearing a black turtleneck and he was carrying an old, bulky Compaq laptop.

He opened his laptop and started playing with the keyboard when he said to me, "I'll trade you my laptop for your sandwich. I'm really really hungry, man."

I said, "I already have a laptop but here, have half of my sandwich."
He then said, "Thanks man. Good... I don't really have the power chord anymore."

I checked my email. He played with his laptop keyboard. We finished our sandwiches and wished each other good luck.
