Where programming, the internet and social media collide.

Mozilla leads us off with a nice post on the net neutrality vote. While the vote was considered positive, it will be interesting to see how companies find loopholes for their own purposes. Microsoft talks about the new rendering engine that will be used for both IE and the new Project Spartan. Stress, anxiety and depression have been very popular topics in the IT industry. Geeky Boy gives us a post about some of that anxiety never really leaves us. The key there is to recognize what is going on and take steps to feel better and be healthy.

Today we start with a story from WIRED about the NSA firmware hacking. I have tried to avoid the hysteria and WIRED has a nicely detailed post. DaedTech, whose posts are normally development related, has a great post on the “retreat of the introvert”. I am sure that most of us will relate to this. Also, take a look at the advanced section below. Three great posts today, one about optimizing A*, another regarding log structured merge trees and a third about finding the maximum result of a multiplication using 5 digits.

We start the week with some awesomeness from XKCD’s What If series, this one about snow removal. I figured that we have all had dreams of faster ways to get rid of the snow. Sam Altman gives us some excellent startup advice. Lastly, Think Faster tells us why rockstar developers don’t ask for help, or more specifically they try to figure things out first before asking.
