The truth is, you probably shouldn't care about equity.If you're doing S, claim what you want in terms of equity, but getting performance based comp / rev sharing should be a) more lucrative, and b) a more reliable bet.Having equity in a business only makes sense if a) you've got decision rights (doesn't sound like you're in a position to negotiate 50%+) or b) you have a liquidity event on the horizon (even if it's 10 years out).How many e-comm businesses has your boss sold?Do you want to stick around for 1 year before you hit your 1 year cliff and get 25% of your equity, and then hang out for another 3 years before you get 100% of your equity?

AT says it supports net neutrality and to prove it, it plans to join the massive online protest Wednesday to show support for rules under fire by the Trump administration.The nation's second-largest phone company, which unsuccessfully sued the Federal Communications Commission in federal court to dismantle the 2015 rules, is joining 70,000 online companies, advocacy groups and individuals in a protest organized to tell the current Republican-led agency to leave the rules alone.Online companies large and small have banded together to drum up grassroots support for the regulations.The rules, which were passed in 2015 by a Democrat-controlled FCC, are meant to prevent broadband companies from favoring their own content over competitors' services.The regulation explicitly prevents these companies from blocking or slowing down competitors' traffic or charging fees to deliver service faster.The regulation has been controversial because the FCC in 2015 changed the classification of broadband to treat the service like a public utility.

Roughly 165 million years ago during the mid-Jurassic, Madagascar was an alien place.The famously large island has yet to fully cleave itself tectonically from India and Africa, still crammed together with the rest of the southern supercontinent of Gondwana.This Madagascar is instead alive with a spectacular diversity of dinosaurs and reptiles, racing along the dirt and soaring above the forests.But everything that slinks, bounds, and lumbers across this sun-baked, proto-Madagascan theatre is united in unshakeable wariness over the region’s most feared apex predator: Razanandrongobe sakalavae, an enormous, land-striding relative of crocodiles with a nightmare where its face ought to go.The fragmented fossilised remains of the horror-croc (nicknamed ‘Razana’, as in ‘Razana, Eater of Worlds’) have been described in a new paper in the journal PeerJ by a team of Italian and French palaeontologists.Up until now, it wasn’t clear if Razana was a massive, meat-eating theropod dinosaur, or some other kind of reptile.

The Honor 9 certainly doesn't look like a cheaper phone at a glance, and nor will your view of it change once you've pored over the spec sheet: it's essentially the same package as the pricey Huawei P10, believe it or not, aside from a few very small tweaks.Here's our projection based on the specs and our initial hands-on time.Still, it feels wholly premium: this is the best OnePlus build to date, and it's nicely slim to boot.It has 15 layers of glass all neatly smashed together, which provides all kinds of eye-catching reflections, with Samsung Galaxy-esque curves along the back too.This one goes to preference, certainly, but if you're looking for a phone that dazzles like a much pricier flagship would, then the Honor 9 takes that win.And neither phone offers water resistance, so that won't sway this particular battle.

Individual page-by-page optimization is critically important, but the results for that action are limited to the single page you’ve optimized.Scalable SEO takes a single action and amplifies it across every page on the site.Scalable projects are a good place to start when you need to prove that SEO can produce results, or when you need results more quickly.The impact tends to be larger and easier to measure, though it can also be harder to nail down which project produced results when multiple projects go live in a single release that affect the same areas of the site.Page templates are most often developed based on design and branding needs, as opposed to SEO.Add structured data — also referred to as schema — everywhere you can, in each template, using JSON-LD.

Today, ecommerce has reduced barriers to entry for generations of young adults who value uniqueness over variety, craftsmanship over commonality, and rich origin stories over American icons.The impact of ecommerce has been widely covered.For generations, large-scale companies relied on that barrier to keep competition low.The radical shift in shopping behavior isn’t a referendum on big-box retail; it’s simply shedding light on the lack of innovation, the contentedness of the status quo that they established in the first place.Where retail was once an oligarchy, those walls are now broken and the American ideal that ideas and innovation will win out has finally taken a foot-hold.Disruption is the only constant

Open source approach could help the company to gain traction in the market.Red Hat is expanding its product footprint in the hyperconverged infrastructure market.The open source company has come out with the Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure which combined virtualisation, storage, and an operating platform to help bring data centre capabilities into locations with limited space.That’s the usual pitch for the benefits of HCI but Red Hat thinks it will have the edge here by offering an entirely open source infrastructure stack that is developed, sold, and supported by a single vendor.The hope is that by vendor lock-in won’t occur due to the open source nature of the product and that the community-based approach will help to speed innovation.The HCI product itself uses Red Hat Virtualisation (KVM), Red Hat Gluster Storage that can be converged on the same hardware as the virtualisation hosts, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and Ansible by Red Hat to take care of the deployment and management.

It can crush retailers — but it can also bolster them.On Wednesday, sources told Bloomberg News that Amazon will begin selling Nike through its brand registry program, following a Goldman Sachs analyst note that said Nike is “close” to selling directly on Amazon.com.That’s a massive change: Nike products, of course, are already available on Amazon through other resellers, which are unlicensed.The second part is important because Amazon provides to direct sellers access to what is known as its enhanced brand registry, which lets brands control their messaging, handle customer feedback and get valuable information like what colors people are picking, what else they are searching for and so on.It can also help guard against counterfeits.“This is the foundation of the house of why Nike would sell to Amazon,” said Marketplace Ignition CEO Eric Heller.

Charles Henderson loved his "awesome" convertible, particularly the fact that he could start, lock and unlock it remotely via his mobile phone.Mr Henderson, from Austin, Texas, is global head of X-Force Red, IBM's offensive security group, so he knows a thing or two about security."We try to think like a criminal without actually acting like one," he says.So before selling his car back to the dealer he was sure to carry out a factory reset and wipe any personal data from the car's onboard computer."I informed the car dealership but they didn't know how to handle this.So we went to the car manufacturer and it took a while before they took it seriously.

In between planes and drones, the skies may be about to get a little bit busier.This month, PAL-V, the creators of what is described as world's first "commercially feasible" flying car, opened a new production facility in the Netherlands and claimed early orders of the two-seater personal air and land vehicle will be shipped to global customers as soon as next year.Production, the firm claimed, will be commencing "imminently" with final assembly on the PAL-V currently scheduled to start in October 2017."Most parts are ordered for the first machines and the first are in house, we will commence construction with an eye on deliveries to our first global clients in 2018 in to 2019," asserted PAL-V chief executive Robert Dingemanse in an update to press.Using two 100-horsepower engines and unleaded fuel, the vehicle will reportedly be able to fly up to 310 miles (400 to 500 kilometres) at an altitude of up to 11,500 feet (3,500m), the firm has said.While on the road, the vehicle will have a top speed of roughly 100mph an hour, the company told AFP, adding it expects to produce between 50 and 100 vehicles during its initial run.

When Assassin’s Creed 3 introduced shipbound naval combat to the series in 2012, some said it was the best part of an otherwise somewhat lackluster game.When Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag cast a pirate as its protagonist and made seafaring gameplay its focus, few were surprised.And when Ubisoft unveiled Skull and Bones during its E3 2017 presentation, it made perfect sense.The company’s Singapore studio, which created the ship gameplay for AC 3 in the first place, has been given free reign to do what they do best, and they’re making a full pirate game without the baggage or requirements of any other series weighing them down.What they’ve built is another “shared world” game, meaning you’ll sail around in an online ocean and encounter ships captained by other players.As you sail, you can watch your crew move realistically around the ship.

Alienware came to E3 2017 packing eye-opening announcements, and none was more impressive than its upcoming Area 51 systems with AMD Threadripper and Intel Core X processors.And we had a chance to look at them on the show floor.A familiar but still awesome chassisThe models of Area 51 announced at E3 may be stuffed with cores, but they’re packed in a familiar crust.Triangular in design, the Area 51 is still unique in the world of gaming desktops.It allows a simple, straight avenue for airflow through the case, with intake coming in the bottom, and exhaust flowing out the top-rear.
