Where programming, the internet and social media collide.

Today we are going to focus on the business side of things. First, an excellent article from Heidi Roizen about building a unicorn but paying attention to the terms of funding. On the Agile Zone, Tim Wise talks about “the business” when dealing with agile projects. Ragawald has a great discussion about whether you know what the problem is, which is based on the post from Santiago Valdarrama. Santiago’s post is being heavily discussed on reddit and is an interesting question itself. Is there a minimum set of knowledge you should have if you are a software engineer?

Leading off today, we have Microsoft talking about bringing asm.js to Microsoft Edge. It is definitely interesting to see Microsoft making such a decision. At Conversation Agent, Valeria Maltoni talks about the learning process and the role of experience. Following that same theme, Adrian Pelletier thinks there are no experts in the web industry mainly because things are changing so rapidly.

Let me start by apologizing for the downtime today. There was some configuration that I had obviously forgotten to do because the database hostname was changing. Obviously, that happened late yesterday and I figured it out this morning. So, the 10 people that look at the blog while I am sleeping will have to come back today to see what’s new :)

I will only highlight the top story today. Google announced Cloud Bigtable, the database that powers all of the good stuff at Google. This is a very interesting development because you get a database at Google scale and it could change where startups decide to host. Could this be the release that changes the Amazon EC2 dominance?

Today ends up being another dev day. EmberJS announces that the new Glimmer rendering engine is now available in canary builds. This is big news for anyone using Ember. On Javalobby, there is discussion of vorlon.js and how to use it to debug your javascript remotely. Lastly, Superfeedr talks about reading the HTTP raw body from several different languages.

I will be at a conference for a few days this week, so I cannot promise to be prompt with updates.

Venture Beat leads the day with their reporting of Google+ Collections. I have mixed feelings about this mainly because I like having options available but Google+ does not seem to really be gaining mass adoption. On AVC, Fred Wilson talks about taking inspiration from failed projects. Everyone should read this, regardless of whether you are an entrepreneur.
