Is Twitter Shifting the Balance of Power From Companies to Their Employees?

Last week leaked audio surfaced of investors arguing that journalists have too much power. But the Verge's Silicon Valley editor asks, "What if you take the whole discussion of "tech versus journalism" and reframe it as 'managers versus employees'?

They were the people who initially described their working conditions under Steph Korey at Away, leading her to step aside as CEO. (She...

And today, he performed his first baptism … of his own youngest baby girl.Even she was thrilled about it.(For NaBloPoMo 2019. T...

the gift of photography

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Korey approached me. “Karen, I was wondering if you could do me a favour.”I adore Korey, so my answer was immediate. “Of course, what’s up?”“Well, I was wondering if you could take a photo of our family,” he explained. “Lisa and I realized that we don’t have any photographs of just the four of us, and with the baby coming, we want to make sure we commemorate this time when we were just four...

When God Isn’t There

Picture this: You’re at a party. The room is crowded with noisy yet familiar voices calling out. People are laughing, telling jokes, catching up with old friends and meeting new ones. There are at least five people within arms length that you should feel comfortable reaching out to but you can’t. You feel alone and trapped. In fact, no matter how familiar a person is, you feel alone in life. Maybe it’s because you’re a minister who is struggling through a broken marriage, trying to find hea...

A pair of former Warby Parker execs have raised $8.5 million to create the perfect suitcase

For many travelers, having high-quality luggage can make all the difference between a seamless flight experience and one filled with headaches. Unfortunately, top-notch suitcases are often either too expensive or too difficult to find.  That's why two former Warby Parker execs — Jen Rubio, the company's former head of social media, and Steph Korey, former head of supply chain — teamed up to create Away, a travel brand aiming to create products that combine high-quality materials and innovative t...

These Four Sets Of Gay Celebrity Friends Have Never Had Sex (Seriously!)

There are boyfriends.

Contrary to popular belief, not every gay guy has engaged in sexual intercourse with his male friends. Sure, sex is a great pool from which to recruit your social life.
