Where programming, the internet and social media collide.

Leading today we have some job and startup related stories. First, Mark Suster talks about survivors on Both Sides of the Table. Mark always gives us an interesting look into the mind of a VC. On Customer Experience Matters, they share some research showing that employees need to feel like they are contributing. For some people, this might sound like basic logic, but in the larger industry it is definitely not the norm. Down in the security section, there is an interesting post from Jonathan Porta. He talks about the Windows 10 defaults for privacy, and how wrong they are. Definitely review the privacy settings when you install.

Leading today we have some interesting news and some that has been long expected. First, Windows 10 was released! The reviews are coming in and VentureBeat has a decent article on that. VentureBeat also reported on a new marketplace for startups, with Amazon partnering with Y Combinator and Andreessen Horowitz. This is definitely an interesting development as Amazon continues to dominate the startup market. There are lots of other good articles today as well.

Today’s leading stories are startup and career focused. On AVC, Fred Wilson talks about startup growth and retention. There are a bunch of useful startup metrics but if your retention sucks, that is normally a very bad sign. Henry Ward tells the story of how eShares got their Series A. It is an interesting post, but the heart of the matter is you need to find investors that are interested in what you are doing. Financial technology is a much easier sell on the east coast than the west coast. Paul Hammant talks about those people you may have seen on your development teams, mavericks and loose cannons. Yes, you will be nodding and remembering that time that one guy did something similar.

Today we start with a story from VentureBeat where they report on research finding a vulnerability in 95% of Android devices. At this point, we have not heard anything about this being exploited in the wild, so we should be safe for now. Tomasz Nurkiewicz talks about RESTful services being “harmful”. The basic idea is that the resource/verb connection does not always work well for applications.

I want to apologize to the 3 people that really await this post every day, I was sick on Friday and unable to post:) That means we have a lot of articles today. Leading the weekend edition, Reuters reports on another Earth-like planet discovered using the Kepler telescope. There seems to be more excitement surrounding this one given its relative location to its sun and some other factors. VentureBeat talks about Malcolm Gladwell’s comments about data possibly being a curse to the data-driven company. As he states, “More data increases our confidence, not our accuracy.” There is plenty more than this to read, so you better get started soon!
