Geek Reading April 12, 2016 #1082

I am not sure how I forgot to post it yesterday, but our lead story comes from The Next Web. SpaceX finally lands its rocket on a drone ship! Geeks around the world were going nuts and the various videos of the landing were shared all over. Wordfence continues their analysis of the Panama Papers hack. It is interesting to see the type of information they have been able to get so far. If you develop code that has any sorts of dependencies, then it should be of use to look at the NPM dependency network analysis at Graph Commons. While your chosen language may not be JavaScript, it is a good analysis and shows how easy it is to start creating a huge set of dependencies, as well as why you should know what else your libraries are dependent upon.

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