Our industry loves a rashomon, and in the past year or two, our collective subject of debate has been Uber. Perhaps the fastest growing company in history (its numbers aren't public, but we'll get to some estimates shortly), Uber has become a vector for some of the most wide-ranging arguments ...

(image) From time to time a piece reminds us that we are in a slow, poorly articulated struggle over what we hold as a public commons. That was the case with Vanity Fair's Man and Uber Man, a profile of Uber's Travis Kalanick by Kara Swisher. Swisher deftly captures Kalanick's combative approach ...

(image) Our friends in the press have decided that search has had its decade in the sun, and I can't disagree, at least as it was known before. The question of how it becomes something else is still very much afoot, but not solved. But glimmerings abound, including from Twitter.
