Venture Capitalist Roger McNamee: 'Google Is Done'.

Uploaded by ForaTv on 30 Dec 2011 : Roger McNamee notices a precipitous decline in Google's search business as a result of the iPhone and other mobile devices, which use apps to access the internet instead of the world wide web. "Because search is falling, I believe that we're being liberated," says McNamee.

 Roger McNamee is a managing director and co-founder of Elevation Partners. Prior to Elevation, Roger was a co-founder of Silver Lake Partners, the leading private equity fund focused on technology and related growth industries. He was a member of Silver Lake's Investment Committee and was involved in all aspects of that partnership. Prior to Silver Lake, Roger was a co-founder of Integral Capital Partners. Integral is a leading technology investor in late-stage venture and public company investments. Founded in 1991 by Roger, John A. Powell, and Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Integral pioneered the crossover investment strategy, which seeks maximum capital appreciation by making investments in expansion-stage private companies and growth-stage public companies in the technology and life science industries.

Firefox & You
From Mozilla, a non-profit organization and developer of Firefox
Hi there,

As 2011 comes to a close, we at Mozilla want to say thank you to all of our Firefox users, supporters and community members. Quite simply, we do what we do because of you.

Mozilla is the force behind Firefox, but we're also a whole lot more than that. And the more people I talk to, the clearer it becomes that not everyone knows what Mozilla is and how we're different. So today, I wanted to make sure you understand it because you're such an important part of our story.

Mozilla is a global non-profit fighting to keep the Internet safe, accessible and awesome. Our goal is to put the power of the Web in people's hands and to innovate for users everywhere. That means a better experience for you and a brighter future for the Web.

So what does that look like? We put together a short video that tells the story of what is possible when a small group of people – a community of idealists, innovators and collaborators – comes together to create, shape and build the future of the Web. Please take a moment to watch the video. If you like it, share it far and wide and consider making a tax-deductible gift to help support the work that we're doing together.


Mozilla is always developing new projects that allow people to dream, discover and create online. Whether it's Hackasaurus, our project that teaches kids to remix and shape the Web in a way that sets them up for a lifetime of creation, or Popcorn, which lets anyone bring the Web into video, we're building software and programs that will create the next generation of webmakers.

But as a non-profit, we can only do that if folks just like you support us.

As the year is almost over – and as part of our ongoing fundraising efforts – I'd like to ask you to make a gift of just $10 or more:

With your help, we can continue to innovate on your behalf without any pressure to compromise, and make the future of the Web brighter than ever. We invite you to be part of something bigger than the Web – something bigger than all of us.


Mark Surman
Executive Director
Mozilla Foundation

Facebook 'buys Gowalla to bolster location offering'

The social network is understood to have struck a deal with the Texas-based location start-up. Facebook has declined to comment. However, Josh Williams, the founder and chief executive of Gowalla, did not deny the deal was going through in an email to AllThingsD, an American technology site. 

He wrote: “The ink on the deal is not dry, so our holding pattern is that we do not comment on rumours and speculation. I have another email penned that was ready to send you today, assuming you would get this news before the story was officially released. “But now it is all over Twitter, so you have likely heard. A longer email will be sent soon.” 

Gowalla, a mobile phone app, allows people to share the details of their location by checking-in to different venues. People can score points by checking-in multiple times to the same place and create a visual picture of their day using the service.
