Where programming, the internet and social media collide.

Today we lead off with a post from Dave Winer at Scripting News. It is not really about reporters, but more about making applications simpler to use. Admin Ofunne has a good post regarding when to scale. The main point is that if you have done this long enough, you start making applications fairly complex in the beginning without knowing if you really need to. Lastly, the Android Developers Blog announced some new tools to help with game development.

On Friday, Google announced its plans for a new office space. Not surprisingly, it looks very cool. Early YCombinator alums are trying a new summer internship for college students which looks fairly interesting. Mozilla announced the release of the Webmaker app, “a free, independent web publishing tool.” Last and definitely not least, we mourn the loss of Leonard Nimoy whose portrayal of Spock will remain with us for a long time. As he would likely say, do not get emotional, that would be illogical. Live long and prosper.
