Episode 28: μ: Investing in Materials Startups
Every new startup requires capital, but most venture capital groups are very cautious about investing in materials companies due to the typically long timeframe for development. In this episode we talk to a Matt Cohen, Director of Technology at Pangaea Ventures. Matt talks about why their company dares to invest primarily in materials companies. He tells us about some of the investments they make, and the impact they have. Matt and the team also discuss how you can start your own startup as well as recommending some books to get you started.

Win a DJI Mavic Mini 2 By Enrolling in Our Thanksgiving Giveaway, Lay Offs at Amazon Prime Air, Arizona Drone Pilot Questioned for Filming the BLM Movement, Latest Updates on the Drone Delivery Industry Our biggest story for today is about drone deliveries and Amazon Prime Air. Archaic drone laws have acted as huge a deterrent as the drone delivery industry as a whole has simply failed to take off. Many industry stakeholders had false hopes that things would take a turn for the better when Amazon Prime Air finally got permission to make drone deliveries under Part 135. However, the latest turn of events indicates otherwise as Amazon Prime Air has laid off hundreds of employees. Jeff Bezos famously commented in 2013 that drone delivery shall be commonplace in 5 years. But does this latest event indicate that we are still a long way off from that day? Apparently, as the next story indicates, as far as the drone delivery industry is concerned, things are far more progressive in other countries. F-drones became the first-ever company to make night drone delivery in Singapore. You also do not want to miss out on the last story which is about our awesome Thanksgiving giveaway.

Control Over Users, Competitors, and Critics | 004
Cory Doctorow joins EFF hosts Cindy Cohn and Danny O’Brien as they discuss how large, established tech companies like Apple, Google, and Facebook can block interoperability in order to squelch competition and control their users, and how we can fix this by taking away big companies' legal right to block new tools that connect to their platforms – tools that would let users control their digital lives. In this episode you’ll learn about: * How the power to leave a platform is one of the most fundamental checks users have on abusive practices by tech companies—and how tech companies have made it harder for their users to leave their services while still participating in our increasingly digital society; * How the lack of interoperability in modern tech platforms is often a set of technical choices that are backed by a legal infrastructure for enforcement, including the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA). This means that attempting to overcome interoperability barriers can come with legal risks as well as financial risks, making it especially unlikely for new entrants to attempt interoperating with existing technology; * How online platforms block interoperability in order to silence their critics, which can have real free speech implications; * The “kill zone” that exists around existing tech products, where investors will not back tech startups challenging existing tech monopolies, and even startups that can get a foothold may find themselves bought out by companies like Facebook and Google; * How we can fix it: The role of “competitive compatibility,” also known as “adversarial interoperability” in reviving stagnant tech marketplaces; * How we can fix it by amending or interpreting the DMCA, CFAA and contract law to support interoperability rather than threaten it. * How we can fix it by supporting the role of free and open source communities as champions of interoperability and offering alternatives to existing technical giants.
