Valeria Maltoni starts our day with her latest post on Conversation Agent. She talks about APIs as personal systems, and it is an interesting look at our use of applications and our data. Andreessen Horowitz gives us 16 more startup metrics. Just like their first 16 metrics, this is another must read. Johanna Rothman adds another installment in her series about resource efficiency and flow efficiency. If you haven’t figured it out yet, I think everyone should be reading that series.

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