Where programming, the internet and social media collide.

WordPress kicks off our day by announcing release 4.2 “Powell”. So, if you are running WordPress, you need to update. Three good articles are highlighted in the security section. On Wired, they report on how the NSA “Quantum Insert” attacks work. Weblog Lexsi talks about Dyreza’s anticrypt. Lastly, Coding Horror goes on a rant about how our passwords need to be longer. The rant is backed by some statistics, so there is some good reasoning there as well.

Three great articles lead off our day. First, Seth Godin prompts us to raise our standards and to make sure we have a boss that wants the same. In business, complacency can mean death. Fred Wilson at AVC talks about “dumbing things down”. More appropriately, if you really want to win you need to make complex things much simpler. Google finally announces their “wireless plan” called Fi. It is an interesting offering and definitely something to keep an eye on.

Today we have a big mix of good articles. On Both Sides of the Table, there is a good discussion of understanding your character as an entrepreneur. This also applies to most of your career, so take a long look at it. In development, Henrik Warne has a great list of lessons learned in software development. In the “other stuff” category, John Cook has a very interesting look at some of the basic arithmetic rules and why you might not want to apply them. File this article under “don’t always blindly follow the rules, question them sometimes.”
