Where programming, the internet and social media collide.

Leading today is another security issue. As reported by TechCrunch, a vulnerability in Lifelock could have exposed logins and passwords. Granted, this one sounds like it may not have been breached, but an identity security company had better be sure they follow the OWASP Top 10. There are a good bunch of articles related to DevOps today as well. Yet another 2 Docker articles are included today, one trying to explain what it is compared to other technology and another trying to explain why it is not enough for enterprise IT. A third container-related article comes from the 80% blog, and talks about a container native package system instead of using yum and others.

As reported by TechCrunch, in a somewhat surprising move, Cisco decides to acquire OpenDNS for a boatload of cash. I will be curious to see if there are any affects of this purchase or whether OpenDNS will be able to continue with business as usual. Google announces some new features and partners for Google Fit. The key here is the partners like MyFitnessPal and others. People use a lot of different tools to track their health, so integrating with them is a smart plan.

One of my favorite topics is company culture and how it can save or kill a company. On AVC, Fred Wilson talks about the potential of relocating your company and the possible change of employee mindset from loyalists to mercenaries. In the world of data, we have two very good posts. On KDnuggets, we have a post about the 9 laws of data mining. It is a solid introduction to things you really need to consider. At Predictive Pop, they have a great visualization for 25 years of music history. If you like Pandora, then the visualization will help you appreciate the relationships between songs a little more.

The big news of the day is not tech related, but on Friday the Supreme Court ruled that gay couples have a right to marry. WordPress celebrates its 10th year of service. Obviously, this is important because it powers so many websites and blogs.

Leading today, VentureBeat reports on the quiet launch of Google’s Cloud Source Repositories. This seems like something we should have heard more about, but I don’t remember seeing anything about it. Amazon AWS announces the availability of all things Alexa, the Skills Kit, the Voice Service and a Fund. Last but not least, we have AJ Kohn, from Blind Five Year Old, talking about click-through rate being a ranking signal on Google’s search results. I don’t talk about SEO much, but reading AJ’s work is always fascinating.
