Where programming, the internet and social media collide.

Seth Godin leads us off with a good post on the difference between commitment and technique. Obviously, this applies to almost all parts of life, you can have the proper technique, but without commitment, you will not be as successful as you could be. Techipedia, the home of Tamar Weinberg, has a similar topic today regarding your work ethic in the changing work environment.

Just in case you did not think mobile payments were about to take off, Facebook introduces friend-to-friend payments. Clearly, Facebook wants some skin in the game before the industry really gets going. GigaOm may be gone, but the Structure conference went on because the attendees organized their own conference. This is interesting for a few reasons. First, the power of the people is obvious. Second, the conference clearly fills a need and has a passionate following. I am curious to see if the owners of GigaOm’s remains take advantage of this. In other news from Stanford Medicine, scientists have discovered how to change human leukemia cells into harmless immune cells. While this is still early, the potential is very interesting.

Today we have yet another Docker article, this one on Javalobby discussing how to build an environment you can trust. Docker as a quick developer environment has always been appealing, so it is definitely a good post to read. At Yeller they talk about how incuriosity will kill your infrastructure. Basically, if something doesn’t look right, that is your cue to look into it, otherwise a bug can manifest itself in bad ways later. Simply Statistics talks about a problem that the programming industry has had for a while now, good work makes things look easy.

Leading us off today is FastML, trying to give us perspective on the “human-level AI” scare hype. Interconnected writes about a richter scale for outages. This is listed as a top story because there is a lot of merit in the idea and it also puts into perspective how important certain things really are. Matthew Graybosch talks about programmer passion being a bad thing, more based on the idea that those who are willing to work 60-80 hour weeks are probably doing a bad job in the end. Also, there is a great selection of development articles today, so take a look at a few of those.

Mozilla brings us a cool memory scanner to improve server security. Anything that can make security easier is a top story. Another person that you should always read when he writes is AJ Kohn. On his blog, Blind Five Year Old, he talks about aggregating intent. Granted, his posts are billed as SEO most of the time, but understanding how Google and much of the internet works is well worth the read. Typically, there are a lot of stories over the weekend, and this was no exception.
