On Not Moving On
1 Nov 2014 12:46am GMT Casey Newton, The Verge: There was a time when I struggled to come to terms with myself; when I felt alone; when I scanned the horizon looking for someone to point the way forward for me. There was a time when the only other gay men I knew were the ones I saw in TV and movies, and they seemed nothing like me. It feels embarrassing to say now that what I wanted back then was a role model — someone confident in himself, powerful, a real leader — to give me permission to be myself....

31 Oct 2014 9:00pm GMT Alistair Barr, reporting for the WSJ: Andy Rubin, co-founder and former leader of Google Inc.’s Android mobile business and the current head of its nascent robotics effort, is leaving the Internet giant, the company said Thursday. Mr. Rubin is starting an incubator for startups interested in building technology hardware products.
