Truth in Tech Ep 11: Girls Don’t Make Passes at Creeps Who Wear (Google) Glasses

Our weekly series, Truth in Tech, is now a podcast! So you can listen at your convenience – at your desk or on-the-go.

Claire and I wade through a lot of tech news. Usually we tweet about what we’re reading, but 140 characters doesn’t leave room for much nuance. So here we gather the most interesting tech stories from startups to tech giants to acquisitions to delightful new apps, and breakdown what they all mean for the startup scene. On the slate this week:

Yahoo! acquires Summly  (created by a then 15-year-old boy) for $30 million.
