Front cofounder and CEO Mathilde Collin argues that while the way we use email is inefficient, email remains a necessary tool for workplace communications.


It seems that every few months, someone announces that email is dead, has been dead for quite some time, or will die soon. The latest such prediction came from Slack cofounder and CEO Stewart Butterfield (who is an investor in my company, Front). Butterfield told CNBC’s Andrew Ross Sorkin—while promoting Slack’s direct offering—that conventional email will phase out for Slack users between five to

Yet another disturbing record directly linked to climate change.


When the temperature in Agra, India, climbed above 113 degrees in mid-June, the asphalt on roads started to melt. In San Francisco, where the average temperature in June hovers in the 60s and air-conditioned apartments are nearly nonexistent, it hit 100 degrees and train tracks warped. Later in the month, a town in France broke a national record at nearly 115 degrees. In Germany, a wildfire near 100-degree Berlin forced evacuations.

Raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour would move the U.S. from one of the least economically equal countries to one of the most.

The intern paid $218 for the tapes.


Back in 1976, NASA gave 1,150 reels of 2-inch Quadruplex videotape to a government surplus auction. Gary George, a former intern at NASA’s Johnson Space Center, snapped up the lot of them for $218, in the hopes of selling them to news stations to record over for $50 a pop. He never watched them, but because his dad was a space buff, kept three of the tapes marked as “Apollo 11 EVA” (aka Extravehicular Activity, better known as a spacewalk).
