Got some questions via text, FB & Twitter to see if my job was safe. As far as I know my gig at Bing Ads is OK - http://t.co/TME7l2ZNOB
Difference of 1-2 clicks to complete a task is the difference between your startup being worth billions versus worth $0 #snapchat #instagram"How side projects saved our startup" by http://t.co/DQOycWKxfT - https://t.co/cDejE7A1t9 <= great intro to content marketing for startups@deray indeed. The problem is less police racism and more unaccountability of police in the face of fatalities independent of victim's race
What happened to KeepSafe once they stopped relying on resumes to hire programmers http://t.co/9P6mEjhzfT <= hope this catches on
@deray lots of brands with rainbow avatars today. Nice to see @google also stating #BlackLivesMatter https://t.co/IZ7FQ57eSjToday and every day, Googlers stand in solidarity with the people of Charleston and against racism. #BlackLivesMatter http://t.co/aAfUDZfUuA

Zero? Nada? Zilch? https://t.co/ZuzR2oXTqJIn the future tech blogs as a business category will be as absurd as the idea that blog search engines & RSS readers were billion $ productsI can understand paid subscriptions to tech insights from @stratechery but why pay for 24/7 Uber/GOOG/FB bashing? https://t.co/sd4GkLBnwx@onovotny malware behavior is preventing users from changing it from defaults set by an app. Setting defaults with user consent not malwareQuite sad that after all the value it created, the only way to monetize Java has been by changing search defaults - http://t.co/AM2sA5vaTH
The downside with startups being unicorns with $1B+ valuations is that options are no longer an attractive incentive http://t.co/NVwGHOXV5UExample of crafting the narrative is how Dropbox crows about accounts created not active users or enterprise revenue http://t.co/3uAYfdIDXT

Most important skill in software dev is ability to express complex ideas in simple code http://t.co/eKDz6QVMVk http://t.co/eKDz6QVMVk@deray @alwaystheself sadly attacking people who are contributing to a cause makes people feel better about their lack of contribution.
Take down the #ConfederateFlag at the SC Capitol. To many, it is a symbol of racial hatred. Remove it now to honor #Charleston victims.

I tell you what @Microsoft is crushing it in mobile software now. @Outlook and @msexcel on my iPhone are fantastic. Wow.

Wake me when Apple removes Facebook & Twitter from the App Store for tracking users & ads based on my installed apps https://t.co/7M3FqS5dMFBuilding a streaming music service is a sucker's game. The labels will always make all the money. https://t.co/SMwBP777HXIt's amazing to me that Facebook copied trending topics from Twitter and made it better in every way.@ATLienMe2 @Smooth_Orator @BluntStatement fair point on that.

If the latter is fluid why can't the former be?@Smooth_Orator @BluntStatement are you just arguing medical science hasn't made it so black people can pass for white? Seems oddly specific@Smooth_Orator @BluntStatement interesting perspective since gender is a biological construct whereas race is a social construct. :)
It's interesting to compare Twitter earnings coverage to LinkedIn's where every stat except MAU growth is brought up. http://t.co/nTxVyIoEh7@hammett that's actually the point. Amazon created a narrative where they are judged by revenue while Twitter let it become them vs FacebookTwitter's primary problem is that they lost control of their narrative. No one asks or penalizes Amazon due to monthly active user growthThat's cold โ„๏ธ๐Ÿ™ˆ https://t.co/bHNFARTXfHIf Apple blocks ads in Safari but not in their News app, does that count as coercion or just good business?

@stevesi @BenedictEvans $1 screwed a supplier (labels) as does 30% App Store fee.
