This software engineer didn't know how to figure out the value of her stock option grants, so she made this simple tool to help

As part of their compensation packages, most startups offer prospective employees shares in the company — but few, if any, can give any guidance on what that equity might be worth.  To help startups workers figure out an answer, software engineer Beth Andres-Beck helped create a tool called "TLDR Stock Options."  The tool is incredibly easy to use — only requiring people to enter in two pieces of information to understand their likelihood of either striking it rich or striking out.  It can't t...

Leica’s Q2 is a beautiful camera that I want and will never have

Leica is a brand I respect and appreciate but don’t support. Or rather, can’t, because I’m not fabulously rich. But if I did have $5,000 to spend on a fixed-lens camera, I’d probably get the new Q2, a significant improvement over 2015’s Q — which tempted me back then. The Q2 keeps much of what made the Q great: a full-frame sensor, a fabulous 28mm F/1.7 Summilux lens, and straightforward operation focused on getting the shot. But it also makes some major changes that make the Q2 a far more co...

Facebook and Instagram will hide pages that spread ‘vaccine misinformation’

I’d like to think that everyone who reads TNW knows that vaccines work. That they don’t cause autism, as demonstrated time and time again. That autism doesn’t need the extra stigma and is most certainly preferable to sick and dead kids. That vaccines keep everyone safer, not just the vaccinated. But there are people who don’t believe in vaccines, and they are often led to those beliefs by misinformation spread on social media. Now Facebook says it’s taking a more direct stance against vaccine mi...

The Queen posted on Instagram

She might not be posting beach selfies and hot dog legs, but the Queen has finally jumped on the Instagram bandwagon. On Thursday, she posted her first-ever photo on Instagram after a visit to London’s Science Museum. There, she viewed a letter written to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert from Charles Babbage, the world’s first computer engineer. Perhaps inspired by Babbage’s historic technological contributions, the Queen took to Instagram to commemorate the visit. ...

Facebook will downrank anti-vax content on News Feed and hide it on Instagram

After indicating that it was exploring its options for fighting the potentially deadly rise of anti-vaccination content on its platform last month, Facebook is making a plan of attack. Facebook’s strategy in the effort is to both minimize the spread of vaccination misinformation and to point users away from inaccurate anti-vaccination propaganda and toward “authoritative information” i.e. info corroborated by the health and scientific establishment. To achieve a reduction in the spread of ant...

Just Wondering (Blog Notes)

Did you notice that TOP hasn't had any posts about gear since February 18th? That's because some people were complaining that they thought the site had gotten to be too much about gear. I thought I'd try doing without it for a while to see how you liked it. What do you think? Do you like it better this way, or worse? Have you been happier and more involved with the site in the past two weeks or so? Or did you catch yourself going elsewhere to read (or view videos) about gear? Just curious! Mike ...

Instagram prototypes video co-watching

The next phase of social media is about hanging out together while apart. Rather than performing on a live stream or engaging with a video chat, Instagram may allow you to chill and watch videos together with a friend. Facebook already has Watch Party for group co-viewing and in November we broke the news that Facebook Messenger’s code contains an unreleased “Watch Videos Together” feature. Now Instagram’s code reveals a “co-watch content” feature hidden inside Instagram Direct Messaging. It’...

Facebook to Take Harsher Action Against Anti-Vaccine Content

Facebook won’t allow anti-vaccine views to pop up in search or recommendations on the social network or Instagram, and will reject ads that contain misinformation about vaccines, the company said Thursday. Last month, U.S. Representative Adam Schiff, a Democrat from California, sent a letter to Facebook and Google, asking them to address the problem because their inaction may have contributed to recent outbreaks of measles in the country. Google’s YouTube turned off the ability for anti-vaccin...
