Where programming, the internet and social media collide.

Today we focus on startups and your career. First, on Both Sides of the Table they discuss the best way to explain your startup. Does your startup have a story or a good narrative? Next, Seth Godin talks about continuous learning in your field. Do you know who you should be following or reading in your industry?

Leading today’s stories is a Logjam. The Next Web reports on a new bug found in SSL called Logjam. Yahoo Labs open-sourced EGADS, a scalable, configurable and novel anomaly detection system. On High Scalability, we have a very good article about scaling demanding queries, high velocity data modifications and fast indexing. There is a lot of good information in that post.

To start our day, Amazon announced the EC2 Spot Fleet API which allows you to manage spot instances through a simple API. A very cool addition to their offering. First Round Review follows with the difficulty in building engineering team, based on the perspective of Tiho Bajic, CTO of Nitro. Ayende @ Rahien presents a good perspective on accepting community contributions and programming language selection.

Leading off today, Google Cloud Platform lowers their prices and announces the availability of preemptible VMs. These are short-term, volatile instances that are useful in large compute clusters because they can be taken down at any moment. It is an interesting idea and something to watch long term. Amazon AWS did not announce a similar offering (yet), but they did announce the release of OpsWorks for Windows.

There is lots of good reading from this weekend. First, Venture Beat reports on the Starbucks mobile hack. It is an interesting read to see how security hacks are changing. On StackShare, 500px shares how they serve over 500TB of photos. Lastly, Rust v1.0 is officially released. So, you can now play with Rust and not worry about what will change and break your code.
