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.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
