Legislating noncompetes @TechCrunch @hirimalibe

The battle over noncompetes is a modern-day rendition of an age-old trope: the big corporation versus the little employee; Goliath versus David. The only difference?

Mark Zuckerberg is “deeply disappointed” by the Internet.org satellite explosion 😒 @TechCrunch @hirimalibe

In the long run, though, the second change may be more wide-reaching: starting…
