Remember the brouhaha over their HomePod speaker leaving indelible rings on wood surfaces? You couldn't help but feel the design...

What caught my eye this week. F eels like only a couple of weeks ago I was reminding everyone via Weekend Reading that shares can go down as well as up. Actually that’s because it was on a couple of weeks ago. Twice. I needn’t have bothered. The past ten days – and most especially the past week – has provided an exhilarating reminder that stock markets can fall faster than you can say “no, for the hundredth time, UK government bonds are not riskier than shares.” Indeed this has been the fastes...

First off, they are fully remote; founders selected to participate in the program chat with advisors via video chat. Second, Pioneer is largely looking at companies that aren’t companies yet, framing themselves as more of a “startup generator” than an accelerator that aims to help entrepreneurs outside Silicon Valley zero in on exactly wh...
