Where programming, the internet and social media collide.

Some more unpleasantness leading off today as VentureBeat reports on the DDoS attack on GitHub continuing and evolving. Also from VentureBeat, Google has started morphing some of Google+ as photos and videos are now available in Google Drive. By itself, this is not a big thing, but we know that Google has not been thrilled by the usage of Google+. This could just be a move to make Google+ even more pervasive as they get ready to push it heavily for enterprises.

Mostly unpleasant news to lead our day. Zynga is now facing a lawsuit regarding potential fraud tied to its IPO. This could be interesting because it could make things a little harder for later IPOs. Slack reports that their user database was hacked. Thankfully, it does not sound like any confidential information was stolen.

Backchannel starts our day with a discussion of the three phases of consumer products. If you are a startup in the consumer space, you should definitely read it. For the second day in a row Valeria Maltoni, writing at Conversation Agent, gives us some excellent content. Today she talks about how access has more value than information. Johanna Rothman sheds some light on why managers ask for estimates. It is really good information for those people that do not pay attention to the business side of a company.

Leading off today, MIT News announces that Michael Stonebraker wins the Turing Award. He is one of the leading database researchers and the award is probably overdue. Valeria Maltoni, writing at Conversation Agent, talks about taking good advice, not just listening to it. There are a lot of development articles today as well. In particular, the Dart team decided to focus on compiling to JavaScript instead of trying to make Dart work in all of the browsers. With the coming updates to JavaScript, this could be an interesting development.

Today we have a few top stories for you. First, Apple announced their acquisition of FoundationDB. I am curious what this purchase is really about, but we will have to wait and see. Both Sides of the Table brings us an interview with Fred Wilson that is very informative. Lastly, Seth Godin talks about how some of the harder things are more worthwhile. It is definitely a good, short read.
