  1. 69. The E-Bike Radicalization of Jessica Valenti – The War on Cars

    Jessica Valenti, the noted feminist writer, was curious about e-bikes. So, as one does, she posted a question about them to Twitter. Thus began her path to radicalization. After buying an e-bike of her own, she quickly found how life-changing it was — a not uncommon feeling among the converted. A lifelong New Yorkers, Jessica found that riding an e-bike changed her perspective on the city and offered her new insight on being a woman in public space. In this spirited and far-reaching conversation, Jessica talks about e-bikes as vehicles of feminist empowerment, means of escaping harassment and good plain fun. Plus, we dig into history and discuss the similarities between the “resting bitch face” of today and the “bicycle face” of the late 1800s.

  2. Industrial Evolution: New Cloud Capabilities on the Horizon

    In our data-driven age, today’s mainstream businesses need a combination of both cloud and “on premises” infrastructure with the same level of capabilities as tech giants like Amazon, Microsoft and Google. But the server racks they buy from traditional OEMs are still designed with software and hardware based on legacy architectures from the 1980s and ’90s. So says industry veterans Bryan Cantrill and Jessie Frazelle, two of the founders of Oxide Computer Company, which is building a modern, vertically integrated on-prem solution that will allow enterprises to own — not rent — essential cloud capacity. In conversation with Eclipse Partners Seth Winterroth and Kushagra Vaid, Bryan and Jessie also discuss the humanity of their deeply technical venture, through early implementation of their core values in the company and inspirational advice for future founders.
