technologyreview.com — Ello, a new ad-free social network that's currently open only to those with invitations, focuses on style and simplicity.

Don’t Ask Google’s Eric Schmidt How to Achieve “Work-Life Balance”

technologyreview.com — Google is daring, creative, and by multiple accounts an enviable place to work-but is the way it's run a model for other companies to follow? After all, quintessentially Googley practices like giving people free time to pursue projects are easier to follow if you enjoy very large profits from a product that has remained unbeatable for a decade.
