Match Group's CEO audited the company's payroll to make sure she was paying women equally and was surprised at the results

When Mandy Ginsberg took over as CEO of online dating juggernaut Match Group in mid-2017, she was determined to alter the perception of the industry as a "bro culture" world. 

And one step she made was to audit the salaries of her own workforce, which is now 1,500 people, to see if she was paying women and men equally for equal work. 

She was shocked to discover that at her company — the largest operator of dating apps with brands like Tinder, Match, Plenty of Fish and dozens of others — her female employees were 100% equally paid, according to the findings by……

Building a robot? Occipital wants to provide the eyes.....

Called the Occipital Structure, it packed lasers and cameras into a snap-on package that let the iPad be used for anything from accurately measuring a room’s dimensions to building 3D models for building prosthetic limbs.

I don’t really have other symptoms: I am not feverish, it’s staying (stubbornly!) confined to my throat, I’m not otherwise weak – but this malaise just won’t leave my body. I’ve seen multiple professionals, I’m taking both western meds, as well as stuff suggested by an acupuncturist, but the main thing that everyone says is “You pretty much have to wait it out”.

That’s pretty much how I feel about the Direct Market portion of the comics industry right now: we’re sick, it clearly isn’t getting any better, the people who are supposed to be able to help aren’t doing anything useful about it, and I guess we just have to ride it out.


Boom! is doing a ton of things right from my point-of-view. They have a solid, if unspectacular, creative slate that features a solid mix of work-for-hire licensed properties, a reasonably focused young readers line (that also skews “hipster” so some adults are buying in as well), and a pretty good line-up of creator-owned books.
