Where programming, the internet and social media collide.

Leading our day is an excellent post on Stratechery about the various social platforms and digital advertising. It is definitely an interesting read if you have a startup that depends on advertising for revenue. On Conversation Agent, Valeria Maltoni talks about the growth mindset. One thing that really made sense to me is the idea that growth is not just about effort, sometimes you need to ask for help. Knowing how, when and who to ask for help is an important skill. If you are interested in vector editing tools, Figma Design came up with an elegant solution to dealing with a set of vectors. They introduce vector networks instead of the typical path-based solution.

Security articles lead our day, but the first one is good news. Google talks about building a safer web for everyone, including some GMail improvements. Krebs on Security follows with some news about skimmers hijacking ATM network cables. The moral of the story is, if you see an odd set of wiring, do not use that machine. At DZone Agile, there is an excellent post on what was learned at a startup weekend. In this case, the developer learned more about the various parts of a product business than actual coding. I have long been a believer in understanding more about the business side of things, and this is yet another case of it.

Leading our day is a post by Mark Suster on Bothsides of the Table. He talks about the resetting of the startup industry, which is interesting reading if you are trying to get your own startup funded. Gil Zilberfeld gives us an entertaining post about “estimate theater”. With a dialogue, he tries to get to the root of the problem with a team’s estimates. On Solve for Interesting, we get an excellent post on the future of Google Inbox and how it could challenge the other personal AI systems like Siri, Cortana and Echo.

Leading the day is an interesting look at the problems at GitHub as reported bu Business Insider. Much like any company trying to grow their revenue from a small company, they start to have an identity crisis and some of the early employees depart. Overall, it is not surprising but I am curious to see how it gets handled over time. As usual on Conversation Agent, Valeria Maltoni gives us a very good post about stamping out creativity. On DZone, we have another great recruiter post about the phantom client. Anyone who has been contacted by recruiters has dealt with this sort of problem.

Leading off our day is a cool article from Fast Co.Exist about a house that costs about $20,000. There is not a lot of detail about the house, but the idea is every cool. At Bothsides of the Table, Mark Suster talks about what will happen in VC  in 2016. At Sudophilosophical, we get an interesting read on the decline of software quality at Apple. The real reason this is interesting is that people tend to worship Apple’s hardware, but this is not the first article railing against the quality of their software in the past year or two.
