At Tock, this restaurant group owner and former trader is building a Spotify for reservations

Tock, a nine-year-old, Chicago-based culinary reservation service, has never had the kind of brand-recognition that other companies in the space have enjoyed, from publicly traded OpenTable to Resy, the New York-based company that was founded in 2014 and acquired last year for undisclosed terms by American Express. That’s because Tock long focused on a white-label service for its customers, many of them high-end restaurants like French Laundry that, with Tock’s encouragement, began years ago sel...

SpaceX alumni are helping build LA’s startup ecosystem

During the days when Snapchat’s popularity was booming, investors thought the company would become the anchor for a new Los Angeles technology scene. Snapchat, they hoped, would spin-off entrepreneurs and angel investors who would reinvest in the local ecosystem and create new companies that would in turn foster more wealth, establishing LA as a hub for tech talent and venture dollars on par with New York and Boston. In the ensuing years, Los Angeles and its entrepreneurial talent pool has captu...

‘Your Workday Is Easier Thanks to His Revolutionary Ideas.’ Computer Scientist Who Created ‘Copy’ and ‘Paste’ Dies

(NEW YORK) — Larry Tesler, the Silicon Valley pioneer who created the now-ubiquitous computer concepts such as “cut,” “copy” and “paste,” has died. He was 74. He made using computers easier for generations as a proponent and pioneer of what he called “modeless editing.” That meant a user wouldn’t have to use a keyboard to switch between modes to write and edit, for example. “The inventor of cut/copy & paste, find & replace, and more was former Xerox researcher Larry Tesler. Your workday is ...

Could the 2020 Tokyo Olympics Be a Victim of COVID-19?

In a promotional video featuring Japanese tennis superstar Naomi Osaka, as well as fans of different nationalities, the organizing committee for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games revealed on Feb. 17 the event’s official motto: United by Emotion. Yet if there’s one emotion linking the world today, it might be fear. The COVID-19 outbreak shows little sign of weakening. As of Feb. 19, the disease has infected more than 75,000, killed 2,014 and prompted over 50 countries and territori...

The free market is elusive

Free markets aren’t particularly common. At the baseball game, the snack vendors sell what the person with the concession tells them to sell. It’s a choice, but Hobson’s choice: take it or leave it. Geography makes the idea of a free market difficult, because only one business can exist in any given spot. Fifth Avenue in New York seems like an epicenter of commerce, but long-term leases and the need for millions and millions of dollars in free cash flow mean that there are actually very few degr...

The Org nabs $8.5M led by Founders Fund to build a global database of company org charts

LinkedIn has cornered the market when it comes to putting your own professional profile online and using it to network for jobs, industry connections and professional development. But when it comes to looking at a chart of the people, and specifically the leadership teams, who make up organizations more holistically, the Microsoft-owned network comes up a little short: you can search by company names, but chances are that you get a list of people based on their connectivity to you, and otherw...

Codecademy has already outlived many rivals — is that enough?

Codecademy, the New York-based online interactive platform that offers coding classes in a wide variety of programming languages, is a little like background noise; it’s been operating reliably since founder Zach Sims created the company while still a Columbia University student in 2011. It’s a brand that people know and that millions have used, but because it has grown steadily, without headline-making funding rounds — or, conversely, newsworthy layoffs —  the 90-person company doesn’t routinel...

Zero Motorcycles unveils new SR/S — a full-fairing 124 mph sport EV

California-based mobility startup Zero Motorcycles has a new e-moto in its lineup — the fully-faired SR/S, unveiled today in New York. The company’s CEO Sam Paschel pulled the cover off the two-wheeled EV, which is based on the platform of the company’s SR/F, released last year. The new SR/S has similar stats to the SR/F: a 124 mph top-speed, up to 200 miles of range, 140 ft-lbs of torque and charge-time of 60 minutes to 95%, Paschel told TechCrunch at the debut. Zero’s latest EV is an IoT motor...

Tim Draper puts $1M into the Aragon blockchain project to create digital courts

In the murky world of crypto and blockchain, taking disputes to a traditional court would either land both the plaintiff and the defendant in jail or confuse the court to the point of total befuddlement. You can just imagine the scenario: “What is a DAO?” “It’s a decentralized autonomous organization, your honor.” “Please speak in English!” Meanwhile, blockchain-native “communities,” such as they are, find it almost impossible to settle disagreements using traditional courts. And it turns out ca...

WeWork's $60 million private jet is now on the market — see inside the ultra-luxurious Gulfstream G650ER

WeWork's Gulfstream G650ER has been placed on the market for an unspecified price. The 16-seat ultra-luxurious aircraft was extensively used by Neumann, according to employees, and was a divisive symbol during the peak of WeWork's internal struggle between employees and management. The jet was highly customized by WeWork for Neumann and included a conference table and private bedrooms, according to its listing on AvBuyer.   Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Coronavirus could cost Apple $4 billion this quarter as the firm warns of iPhone shortages

Apple could lose $4 billion in sales as the coronavirus impacts its ability to produce sufficient iPhones and AirPods.  In a Monday press release, the firm warned that it expected to take a revenue hit due to the novel coronavirus outbreak in China. Wuhan, in China, is thought to be the epicenter of the virus. The virus has so far infected more than 71,000, and killed more than 1,700. The majority of the cases are concentrated in China, but it has spread to more than 25 other countries. Analys...

Global stocks tank after Apple warns Wuhan coronavirus is hammering sales

Stocks tumbled on Tuesday after Apple warned Wuhan coronavirus is hitting sales. The iPhone maker doesn't expect to hit its quarterly revenue target as the outbreak is hampering production and hurting demand. HSBC's disappointing earnings and restructuring plans also weighed on market sentiment. The banking giant's profits fell 33% last year and it intends to eliminate 35,000 jobs by 2022.

Watch the Grateful Dead Slip Past Security & Play a Gig at Columbia University’s Anti-Vietnam Protest (1968)

In 1968, the Vietnam War was not a catalyst for protests but a sort of nexus for all other injustices--the part contained elements of the whole: racism, class war, capitalist profiteering, imperialism. It was symptom and cause, much like climate change feels today. In April of that year, one inflection point happened on New York’s Columbia University campus. The University wanted to build a military gym, not on campus, but in Morningside Park, a public space that bordered on Harlem. The ...

Trouble At The Law Firm Filing Patently Ridiculous Lawsuits On Behalf Of Tulsi Gabbard (techdirt)

We've covered the two ridiculous lawsuits filed by Tulsi Gabbard in the past few months -- one against Google and another against Hillary Clinton. In both cases, the lawsuits were filed by lawyers at the law firm Pierce Bainbridge, and we questioned why they'd want to sully their own reputation by filing lawsuits that seemed clearly destined to fail, and which only seemed to serve a PR purpose in playing to her supporters. A few days later, NBC News posted quite an incredible story about how p...

Nostalgia for a time when news was not free

The other day when I posted one of my columns to Facebook — hey, they don’t throw themselves into the mammoth moneymaking maw, given over gratis by wimpy old-school journalism to the social-media billionaires who have eaten our lunch — a Bay Area friend complained in the FB comments section: “Your paper has put up a pay wall, and I can’t read this!” I didn’t want to get into the economic weeds with him. All I wrote in reply was: “Baby needs new shoes.” (Baby may be 29 and married, living in New ...

China Quarantines Cash to Sanitize Old Bank Notes From Coronavirus

Today China announced it was taking unusual new steps to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. It's blocking the transfer of old bank notes between provinces and cities affected by the outbreak, according to the deputy governor of the People's Bank of China — and that's just the beginning. Bloomberg reports: The central bank also ramped up measures to sanitize old money to reduce contagion risks and added 600 billion yuan ($85.9 billion) of new cash for Hubei, the epicenter of the coronavir...

WeWork is bringing in a new CEO as it tries to right the ship — here's everything that's going on inside the coworking giant

WeWork pulled its IPO in 2019 after mulling a massive valuation cut to drum up investor interest, and cofounder Adam Neumann was ousted as CEO and chairman. WeWork has been slashing jobs and selling or shuttering businesses.  WeWork has announced real-estate veteran Sandeep Mathrani as its new CEO, replacing Artie Minson and Sebastian Gunningham, who served as co-CEOs since Neumann was ousted. It's also seen a big board shakeup.  Marcelo Claure will stay on as chairman, according to The Wall S...

‘And Then We Danced’ Director Levan Akin on when a movie gets you death threats

Director Levan Akin on set with Levan Gelbakhiani “Can we sit outside? I need to smoke.” Levan Akin makes the request when we greet him outside a bookstore in Park City, Utah. The two of us find a cafe table nearby overlooking the street, where we watch a light powdering of snow begin to fall as the mid-week lull of the Sundance Film Festival begins. Normally we might object to Akin smoking, but in his case, it somehow makes sense. His Sundance entry, And Then We Danced, has incited protests ...

An Anonymous Group Claims it Took DNA From Global Elites -- And is Auctioning It Off

An anonymous organization called the Earnest Project is offering the chance to own DNA samples of a handful of world leaders and celebrities. The group claims it has surreptitiously collected items discarded by attendees of the 2018 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, that may contain their DNA. President Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and Elton John all attended the conference. From a report: The group has compiled these artifacts -- napkins, p...

Class action suit against Clearview AI cites Illinois law that cost Facebook $550M

Just two weeks ago Facebook settled a lawsuit alleging violations of privacy laws in Illinois for the considerable sum of $550 million. Now controversial startup Clearview AI, which has gleefully admitted to scraping and analyzing the data of millions, is the target of a new lawsuit citing similar violations. Clearview made waves earlier this year with a business model seemingly predicated on wholesale abuse of public-facing data on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and so on. If your face is visible...
