amazon-echo I love my Amazon Echo. And alongside checking the weather, I mostly use the voice-powered smart speaker to play music. That said, I’m not much of an Amazon Prime music user.

While TechCrunch Disrupt remains a firmly curated, media-driven, event, with hundreds of journalists attending, a couple of other conferences have really gone for scale. A minimum of 15,000 people, thousands of companies, echoing halls — and a lot of investors (and journalists) turning their badges around so they don’t… Read More
