WEEK STARTING DECEMBER 9


AUSTRALIAN FINTECH & STARTUPS

eScooter startup 'Neuron Mobility' is going to launch in Brisbane, following investment from Square Peg capital. Regulation permitting, it'll soon be in Sydney & Melbourne. If you don't see them, try checking your local river and / or tree. Link

The Morrison Government announced changes to regulate Big Tech platforms, notably around privacy & data protection. Link. This comes following the ACCC's digital platforms inquiry, the final report being release earlier this year. This is all a bit 'meh' - and there's a very good breakdown as to why here

UBank partnered with Basiq for a spending categorisation tool / personal finance manager. Link 

Redbubble's burst after not meeting trading expectations. Link

BIG TECH

CEO of Luggage startup, Away, has resigned (packed their bags?) after allegations of abusive practices. Slack was the main conduit for the bullying & the practices the CEO enforced are literally insane (as in, making employees take a selfie of them in bed with their computers to show that they're still working insane). Fantastic & brutal article that exposes this all here

Twitter is developing an open & decentralised standard for social media. This also decentralises their responsibility (they won't be responsible for what people can and can't see online). Link

POTPOURRI


A profile on Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia. Link
