Harvard researchers say that Lyft investors will likely come to regret giving the cofounders so much control with so little stock (LYFT)

Lyft's power structure, which gives founders Logan Green and Josh Zimmer a concentration of voting power, "can be expected" to decrease Lyft's share value in the future, according researchers at Harvard Law. The dual-class structure means that Green and Zimmer have near-total control over Lyft while collectively owning less than 5% of the company. They could also retain significant control while owning as little as 2.65% of the company's equity, the researchers found. This could hurt Lyft's sh...

A Harvard professor warns that the US is falling behind in deploying fiber-optic networks, and it could make inequality here even worse (VZ, T, CMCSA)

The biggest tech problem facing the US is that it doesn't have universal access to super-fast fiber-optic internet connections, according to Susan Crawford, a telecommunication expert and professor at Harvard Law School. Crawford details the promise of such a network — and the dangers the US faces if it doesn't deploy one — in a new book.

Cybersecurity for the Public Interest

The Crypto Wars have been waging off-and-on for a quarter-century. On one side is law enforcement, which wants to be able to break encryption, to access devices and communications of terrorists and criminals. On the other are almost every cryptographer and computer security expert, repeatedly explaining that there's no way to provide this capability without also weakening the security of every user of those devices and communications systems. It's an impassioned debate, acrimonious at times, bu...
