Where programming, the internet and social media collide.

Lots of interesting stuff for today! First, Microsoft announced a bunch of things, but more importantly we get a good look at Windows 10. The White House put the entire State of the Union speech on Medium, displaying solid social media savvy. BBC reports on an x-ray technique that allows researchers to read burnt Vesuvius scrolls without unrolling them. On Conversation Agent, Valeria Maltoni talks about understanding your audience in this highly connected world. If you are not reading what Valeria is writing, then you really need to start paying attention.
