Geek Reading March 10, 2015

Lots of news today. First, Louis Gray talks about the closure of FriendFeed, the best social community I have ever been a part of. Some features from FriendFeed eventually made it into Facebook, but the community will never be the same. GigaOm, a top tech news site, is closing its doors. This is a shame because they did not just regurgitate the same tech “news” and tried to add some analysis of things. Losing a major site like this is very disappointing. Unless you were hiding from the internet, you heard Apple announcing and releasing things. I am not listing most of that, but I did find the ResearchKit announcement to be very interesting. It is definitely something to keep an eye on. Last, but definitely not least, Google Cloud Platform talks about some tutorials on Khan Academy and Codecademy to help people learn how to code. This is in conjunction with their #FutureCoders push.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
