Geek Reading July 1, 2016 #1140

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!
