VP of brand creative Jackie Jantos is leaving the music streamer less than a week after chief marketing officer Seth Farbman’s exit.

Spotify has had a pretty remarkable year in its creative marketing, with everything from curated content to subway posters. (Overall, too!

The startup that’s quietly working to make America more progressive

Swayable helps political campaigns and advocacy groups shape public opinion by measuring the impact of online videos and other media. Think of it as the anti-Cambridge Analytica.

You’re scrolling through Facebook. You see a video from an advocacy organization on climate change, and you stop to watch. When the video finishes playing, do you care more about climate change–or less?

Like It Or Not, Police Drones Are Coming!

I’m not sure whether to feel excited or terrified of this concept! It’s called Audi Patrone and it aims to provide police officers with the advantage of virtual visibility via drone from the comfort of the department.

The stealthy design features a 4-rotor system and jet propulsion for flying through town to investigate sudden emergencies or hovering over areas to provide urban reconnaissance. Equipped with powerful lights, cameras, and a VR system that puts officers in the action without...

ACLU slaps Facebook with gender discrimination complaint over job ads

The nonprofit is filing charges with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) alleging that Facebook’s ad platform permits gender discrimination.

Facebook said it would take action, but a year later ProPublica tested the platform again and got the same results. Yet again, Facebook pledged to act within 90...
