The Next Web starts our day by reporting on a hack at the IRS where data from over 100,000 taxpayers was likely stolen. Thankfully, it is not a huge number, but the IRS is one place we do not want data stolen from. Martin Fowler revisits the idea of YAGNI (you aren’t gonna need it) and talks about how some of our ideals have changed. Atomic Spin discusses a nice AI/ML technique, mean shift clustering.
