Where programming, the internet and social media collide.

Leading off our stories today is an interview with Microsoft CEO Nadella. It may not be breaking news, but it is an interesting view into the future of Microsoft. On AVC, Fred Wilson talks about founders getting “knocked down”. The basic idea is how do you handle it and what do you do next, which is applicable to almost anyone, not just founders.

Leading off today is a post from Valeria Maltoni at Conversation Agent. In her post she talks about trying to solve today’s problems, not trying to predict the future. Flowing Data found an absolutely ridiculous visualization of the solar system, where the base assumption is if the moon was one pixel large. It is very cool to navigate, and puts some perspective on how far things are.

Two very cool stories top our day. First, Reuters reports on the New Horizons getting ever closer to Pluto. There are some really cool pictures coming back and it is really interesting to watch. In other “news”, NPR talks about the revival of Bloom County by Berkeley Breathed. This was one of my favorite strips when and it is exciting to see a revival of it. There are some interesting posts in the security section as well, so make sure you check those out.

We have another slow weekend of news today. First, the Army National Guard announced that it had a data breach. This does not sound as bad as the last government breach, but it is still bad. MIT News reports on a program that fixes old code faster than “expert engineers”. The ideas in the project sound interesting, but I will believe the details when I see this in action. Flowing Data shows us a map of just the time zones. Without the typical map boundaries, you can see how weird the time zones really are.

Today is devoted solely to all things Amazon as they announced a pile of fun. AWS CodeCommit, Amazon’s GitHub alternative, is now publicly available. AWS CodePipeline is Amazon’s version of continuous delivery. AWS API Gateway is hard to explain, but it is a mix of a development platform and infrastructure needed to run an API. AWS Service Catalog allows you to create and launch a “stack” of services. VentureBeat reported on AWS Device Farm, which allows you to test apps on Android and FireOS devices.
