Some interesting news to start our day. Twitter finally seems to be moving to longer messages, possibly as big as 10k. Oracle acquired AddThis for $200M. This is interesting because it really feels outside of what Oracle has purchased in the past. Flowing Data has an excellent visualization on the cause of death over various ages. It is definitely an interesting way to look at the differences between the ages and genders.
