Starting off our week we have The Modern Team talking about flat corporate structures and how they may not work in practice. I think people are not really ready for true flat structures just given our experience, and flat requires a huge change in our basic thinking. TechCrunch has an excellent post about the platform paradox when it comes to startups. Basically, you are trying to build a product and a company, but VCs love the idea of a platform so when do you start building one? There were a ton of good development articles over the weekend, so please remember to take a look at all of those articles. In the infrastructure and devops section, there are a number of good posts as well, so don’t forget to read those as well!

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