Where programming, the internet and social media collide.

There are lots of good articles today. In the development section, Luke Wagner talks about WebAssembly and the companies that will be involved in the new initiative.

On Both Sides of the Table, Mark Suster talks about doing less more often. Sometimes it is about focus and sometimes it is about not doing what everyone else is doing.
