Spanish town runs entirely on Twitter

theguardian.com — "The only things that the United States has given to the world are skyscrapers, jazz, and cocktails," once wrote Federico García Lorca.

So, I'm not the only woman to despair about institutional sexism in tech

theguardian.com — I have never had a more interesting discussion in a posh loo. On a voluptuous day-bed and plush armchairs, I was sat with several formidable women, all despairing about the sexist curation of one of European technology's most influential events. This is the 10th Founders Forum London, something like the Davos of tech but set in the home counties.

Dick Costolo: Twitter unfollows the leader as social milestones are missed

theguardian.com — It says something about the extraordinary scale of social platforms when a technology behemoth with 302m active users every month can be seen as failing to achieve its potential. Yet that is exactly why it appears that Twitter's chief executive, Dick Costolo, now has to go from the company's top post.

Who holds tech firms to account when the media depends on them for income?

theguardian.com — What should we make of recent overtures by tech firms to the news industry? Is this good news for news, citizens and the robustness of the tech industry? The industry has always been defined by technology, from its Gutenbergian roots to the digital, social and mobile journalism of today, but it is the accelerated pace of change that is now a greater challenge.
