Where programming, the internet and social media collide.

Leading off our news is the wonderful announcement from Tesla. The Model S now gets a “Ludicrous” mode. It is nice to see a company have fun with naming things instead of some “super-sport” mode or something drab. In the continuing fight against Flash vulnerabilities, Google Project Zero talks about various mitigations in the latest plugin for Chrome.

Leading today is more cool news about Pluto. Reuters reports on how Pluto has big mountains and other interesting features. Generally, the whole “real, close pictures of Pluto” thing is fascinating. Microsoft talks about support for Web Components in their Edge browser. The gist of the story is, we will support some things now and some things later. Thankfully, they provide technical reasons for why, which is different than the IE days.

Leading off our stories today is an interview with Microsoft CEO Nadella. It may not be breaking news, but it is an interesting view into the future of Microsoft. On AVC, Fred Wilson talks about founders getting “knocked down”. The basic idea is how do you handle it and what do you do next, which is applicable to almost anyone, not just founders.

Leading off today is a post from Valeria Maltoni at Conversation Agent. In her post she talks about trying to solve today’s problems, not trying to predict the future. Flowing Data found an absolutely ridiculous visualization of the solar system, where the base assumption is if the moon was one pixel large. It is very cool to navigate, and puts some perspective on how far things are.

Two very cool stories top our day. First, Reuters reports on the New Horizons getting ever closer to Pluto. There are some really cool pictures coming back and it is really interesting to watch. In other “news”, NPR talks about the revival of Bloom County by Berkeley Breathed. This was one of my favorite strips when and it is exciting to see a revival of it. There are some interesting posts in the security section as well, so make sure you check those out.
