Mixer has lost both of its co-founders as the Microsoft-owned streaming service looks to mount a challenge to the incumbent power in the market: Amazon’s Twitch. Matt Salsamendi, who co-founded the streaming service originally known as Beam at the age of 18, tweeted about his departure late last week. He wrote that the first seeds for Mixer were planted when he was 13, and now he is ready to pursue a new idea. It involves lasers and EDM shows. After 5 incredible years, tomorrow will be my last day at Mixer. A bit about the story of Beam and what's…

Like most things related to technology, Guillaume Wiatr’s work and style is evolving. At the 2019 GeekWire Summit, that evolution was once again on full display as the visual strategist returned to capture highlights throughout the conference. Wiatr, the founder of the presentation coaching company Metahelm, has been bringing his “graphic facilitation” skills to the Summit for five years. And as his process has shifted from markers and giant poster boards to an iPad and a graphics editing app, Wiatr has also noticed a change in Summit participants. “Overall, I hear more maturity,” said Wiatr, whose job is to listen…

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates met with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein multiple times starting in 2011, The New York Times reported, revealing a closer connection between the two billionaires than previously known. Gates told The Wall Street Journal last month that he “didn’t have any business relationship or friendship” with Epstein, who committed suicide in prison in August while facing charges of sex trafficking of minors. That came after reports of a purported connection between Gates and Epstein to provide funding to a prominent MIT research program. According to the new details via The NYT, Gates reportedly visited Epstein’s Manhattan…

Slalom Build‘s Ian Cook grew up in a house that his family built in Kenai, Alaska, population 7,800. There was no indoor plumbing until he reached fourth grade and no electric heat for many years. There was electricity and a bus came not too far from the homestead to take him to school. “I spent my formative years hauling wood in wagons and pumping water,” Cook said. “That certainly had a motivating factor for me in progressing my career.” Another motivator was his dad’s unlikely passion for computers and coding, living in the wilds of Alaska in the early 1980s.…

NASA confirmed today that Boeing is scheduled to conduct the next high-profile test of its CST-100 Starliner space capsule in a little more than three weeks. The target data for Starliner’s pad abort test is set for Nov. 4 at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico, NASA said in a blog update. That’s in line with the plan that Boeing executive John Mulholland laid out earlier this week at a New Mexico space symposium. If next month’s test is successful, Boeing would target Dec. 17 for the launch of an uncrewed Starliner to the International Space Station from Cape…

It was a rough Wall Street debut for Vir Biotechnology, a San Francisco company with ambitious plans to battle infectious diseases. After raising $143 million in an initial public offering on Thursday, shares of the company fell nearly 25 percent on its first day as a publicly-traded company. The 3-year-old startup is backed by Arch Venture Partners and SoftBank as well as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The IPO price of $20 per share price was at the low end of what the company hoped to raise, marking the second disappointment for biotech IPOs this week. German cancer company…

One month after President Donald Trump’s 2017 inauguration, a Seattle startup called Boundless exited stealth mode and announced it would develop technology tools to make the immigration system more navigable. In the two years that followed, Boundless rolled out products that help immigrants apply for green cards and citizenship, while publishing a steady stream of content to demystify the process. At the same time, Trump introduced policies that limit legal and illegal immigration. On Friday, the agendas of Boundless and the Trump administration collided with federal court decisions in a complex turn of events that reflects the uncertainty immigrants in…

A special chance to put your talents to use for NASA is the NASA International Space Apps Challenge Hackathon, which takes place Oct. 18-20 at the SURF Incubator. During the weekend, space-lovers can work on both software and hardware projects that may contribute to NASA’s mission in the future. —…

Harold Ryan has had a long career in the video game industry. His first job was as a tester for the 1996 Windows game Hellbender. From there, he worked his way up to eventually become the CEO of Bungie, the development studio behind the hit Halo and Destiny franchises. Ryan stepped down as Bungie’s CEO in early 2016, after a 16-year run that saw it develop from the weird little indie video game company that made Marathon games for the Macintosh to a major global independent production studio. In late 2016, Ryan went on to found a new company called…

Stratolaunch, the company that was founded by the late Seattle billionaire Paul Allen in 2011 to build a flying launch pad for rockets, says it’s under new ownership. The company reported the handover on Twitter and its website, without saying who the new owner is. But in the absence of other information, Northrop Grumman is the likeliest candidate. Here’s Stratolaunch’s statement: “Stratolaunch LLC has transitioned ownership and is continuing regular operations. Our near-term launch vehicle development strategy focuses on providing customizable, reusable, and affordable rocket-powered testbed vehicles and associated flight services. As we continue on our mission, Stratolaunch will bring…

Medical device startup Cadence Neuroscience raised $15 million to develop a therapy for the treatment of epilepsy. The Series A round was led by Jazz Venture Partners, and the company also received support from Mayo Clinic and grants from the Epilepsy Foundation. Between 70 to 80 percent of people with epilepsy can control their seizures with the help of drugs. The remainder may have surgery to remove part of the brain or to install a device that helps to control the nervous system. The FDA has approved three devices to help control seizures, which are made by LivaNova, Medtronic and…

A few years ago Amazon was putting the finishing touches on two important pieces of hardware that came out within just a few months of each other: The Fire Phone and the Echo smart speaker. In hindsight, we know Echo has been a hit for Amazon, giving the company an early lead in voice assistants, while the Fire Phone was one of the biggest flops in company history. In the lead up to their respective unveilings — Fire Phone in June 2014 and Echo five months later in November — both projects had detractors and supporters, said Dave Limp, Amazon’s…
