It was a slow news day, but there is still plenty to read. CoinLab shows us that anonymity is not quite guaranteed when dealing with Bitcoin. They give us an interesting looks at what information you can find when looking at the data. Mark Suster has an excellent article on Both Sides of the Table where he talks about why raising too much money can harm a startup. Ayende @ Rahien continues his database internals series, today talking about the durability of hard disks and how this affects your writing schemes.

Minor programming note: I will be on vacation for a few days, so there probably will not be a post on July 4. Happy 4th everyone!

Amazon starts our day again, with two new announcements. First, the Elastic File System is now “production ready” in three regions. Also, SNS Messages can now deliver SMS messages worldwide. Thankfully, Twilio was able to have their IPO just before this news, otherwise that could have been a much different outcome. At Ayende @ Rahien we get another post on the database internals, this one focused on managing concurrency. They use my favorite image for multithreaded programming, which also gives me a reason to post that image again. Johanna Rothman continues her Product Owners and Learning series, which is again another great read.

Amazon AWS starts our day with the availability of their Elastic Network Adapter. This is more infrastructure from Amazon in their quest to have you own no IT hardware. On Ayende @ Rahien, we have another database internals post, this one about managing records. This post really starts to show how complex database systems are for the simplest use cases. Johanna Rothman continues her Product Owners and Learning series. This installment, as much of her content, is something everyone should read.

Google Research leads the day with their post about Project Bloks. This is an interesting project but I am not sure how much impact this has on how people eventually learn programming. I am not a researcher in this area, so I am curious to see what the results are like. On the Android Developer Blog, we get the announcement of the availability of the Awareness APIs. For any mobile developer, this set of APIs can be super useful. At Culture of Development we get an excellent post on building your first thing with WebAssembly. My reason for highlighting this is more because I am starting to see a rising interest in WebAssembly, so we should all keep an eye on this trend.

It was a fairly quiet weekend, with several good posts. First, on Java Code Geeks we get an introduction to Otto, the next generation of Vagrant. Facebook Code talks about Torchnet which helps build clean prototypes for deep learning. At Machine Learning Mastery, we get a crash course in convolution neural networks.
