Can Sports Show The Way To Smarter Voting?

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...

Who's Killing The Soul Of Sneaker Culture?

PITTSBURGH — In East Liberty sits a store that never looks open. While nobody would ever admit it, it’s possible that this is a deliberate move. Tinted windows obscure the inside of the store until you’re up close, and those windows are adorned with decorative oak bars all giving the impression of an aesthetically…

The Legend Of Mitch Green

A note before starting: This piece contains a lot of conversations that took place many years ago. They’re not word-for-word quotes, but they are pretty motherfucking close. The phone answering machine messages are exactly what was spoken.

The NCAA Is Running Out Of Excuses On Brain Injuries

Did Kylie Jenner impact Snapchat?

TLDR: Kylie’s Tweet wasn’t that impactful and Snapchat isn’t (completely) dead. However, Snapchat is on a slippery slope following its highly unpopular redesign that has users, Citigroup, and Wall Street challenging its decision. Who’s really behind the decline? While the redesign backlash and Kylie’s tweet no doubt had a negative impact on Snapchat’s sentiment, the ephemeral platform still remains one of the Apple app store’s most popular apps in the UK. Additionally, a SimilarWeb spokesperson ...

TLDR is what Linux man pages always should have been

If you get stuck using a Linux tool, the first port of call shouldn’t be to Stack Overflow, but rather its “man pages.” Man — which is short for manual — retrieves documentation for a given program. Unfortunately, this can often be dense, hard to understand, and lacking in practical examples to help you solve your problem. TLDR is another way of looking at documentation. Rather than being a comprehensive guide to a given tool, it instead focuses on offering practical example-driven instructions ...
