The Food Deliveryman of Tomorrow Doesn't Work for a Restaurant

bloomberg.com — GrubHub has spent a decade positioning itself as the perfect middle man. Hungry people use its service to connect with restaurants, and GrubHub gets a cut of the action without the headaches of delivery: a workforce that needs to be paid and gets into traffic accidents, door buzzers that don't buzz, pizza that gets cold.

Secondhand Downloads: Will Used E-Books and Digital Games Be for Sale?

bloomberg.com — Should consumers be allowed to resell digital songs, books, or video games once you're done with your downloads? If it sounds unlikely, just remember that businesses trafficking in second-hand records and books were once considered controversial before society came to accept them as normal-at least up until the Internet undermined the logic of resale.

Almost No Cubans Have Broadband. Why Does Netflix Want to Stream There?

bloomberg.com — When President Obama announced a deal to improve relations with Cuba late last year, it was clearly only a matter of time before American corporate interests descended on the island. One strange step in that direction took place Monday as Netflix announced new operations in the country.

After RadioShack Dies, There Will Still Be 1,000 Unchanged RadioShacks

bloomberg.com — Yes, RadioShack filed for bankruptcy in a move that has been long time coming. No, that doesn't mean that the RadioShack brand will be swept from the great American corporate landscape. In fact, more than 1,000 franchised RadioShack locations will be virtually untouched by the grim news for the company, selling the same old batteries and gadgets as before-at least for now.

The Silk Road Defendant Didn't Stand a Chance. Would He on Appeal?

bloomberg.com — The Silk Road trial came to an abrupt and almost anti-climactic end Wednesday when Ross Ulbricht was convicted on all seven counts he faced for running the online black market. It took the jury less than four hours to reach a verdict.

The Biggest Hole in the FCC's New Internet Rules

bloomberg.com — The people clamoring for tough, new regulations for Internet service-everyone from net neutrality activists, a few blue-chip companies, President Obama, and John Oliver- got pretty much everything they wanted in the proposals outlined by the head of the Federal Communications Commission.

Sony's Hacking Disaster Didn't Turn Into a Financial One

bloomberg.com — Last year's cyber attack against Sony's motion-picture division will entail a cost of $15 million for remediation and investigations. This is a relatively minor hit: Sony posted expected revenue that exceeded $21 billion in its last quarter, according to the company's earnings report on Wednesday.

@natashanyt it doesn't seem even close to the line for me. But I guess I'm a journalist and not an academic.

@natashanyt nice piece. Weird that people thought there was some ethical question to be discussed.

Feb 13, 2015

@Amanda_Lenhart @syardi and a reporter who contacts someone and is granted an interview is certainly not in an ethical conundrum.

Feb 13, 2015

@Amanda_Lenhart @syardi Twitter is explicitly public, so any public messages posted are fair game.

Feb 13, 2015

@Amanda_Lenhart @syardi well, you can argue whether studies should include tweets that they falsely claim are anonymous.

Feb 13, 2015

@Amanda_Lenhart @syardi the reporter interviewed the person she "deanonymized." Clearly she didn't do anything wrong.

Want your day ruined? Read @rickhess99 and @sadupre on the anti-Teach for America movement, which apparently exists. nationalreview.com/article/398347…

Well, @jcrosscall, everyone knows that @TonyGrossi has been completely consistent with his stance on numbers: he doesn't believe in them.
