Stowe Boyd: No, We Should Not Protest The Yahoo... →
emergentfutures: Paul Higgins : Good points Stowe although I am less optimistic than you sound about Yahoo and what it can do. I am also a little sad to think that the only alternative for Tumblr is to be bought out by a big player, whoever that may be. I do recognise that someone needs to pay the piper and dislike the reactions of people who want a great free service but do not recognise...
This is done well. Simple and easy to read, roughly one page. They aren’t selling my data. Good to know.
Mark's Daily Apple - 5 meals this week →
If you have considered going paleo but struggle in the kitchen or (like me) just figuring out new ways to eat the right foods this article is pretty solid. 5 meals, 35 minutes (probably means 70 for me) and all planned out.
Is It Primal? – Soda Water, Listerine, Tamarind,... →
Mark Sisson, marksdailyapple.com It’s time for another edition of “Is It Primal?” Judging from the endless stream of questions I receive regarding the suitability of certain foods and ingredients, I’m not sure I’ll ever run out of things to scrutinize. As always, though, know tha… Whew… glad sparkling water and soda water are still on my “nice” list.

seattletimes.com After years of debate about Sound Transit’s light-rail line in Bellevue, the City Council and the Sound Transit board will decide this week which options — some of them still controversial — to take to final design. Anyone want odds on Bellevue getting light rail right?

Google Fiber Coming To Austin →
parislemon: Stacey Higginbotham for GigaOm: And that’s one of the biggest repercussions of Google’s fiber roll outs. The more people who can pay $70 for gigabit service (or get 5 Mbps for free), the more pressure this puts on the existing providers to upgrade their networks and cut anticonsumer crap like data caps. But that’s exactly why more cities need these networks. Google is very good...

twitter.com Cruise lines sailing away from Twitter http://dlvr.it/38YSnW One possible explanation is that cruise lines have a slightly older demographic and therefore less use for Twitter. Worth pulling the numbers if possible to compare.

What's so wrong with gentrification? →
Lots of information in this article but one thing stands out: gentrification is bad. I don’t understand that. Take an old ratty area and turn it into something different. How is that bad? Yes, people and cultures move around. We are economic nomads after all. So why all the angst about gentrification?
New Legislation Seeks To Rein In Overdraft Fees →
I’m all in favor of limiting what is clearly gouging. But make it simple, eg put the fee proportional to the amount of the overdraft. Or I dont know, maybe make it the true cost to the bank rather than a revenue generator.
High Scalability - High Scalability - Iron.io... →
After reading this I think it’s time I dug in and learned a new, non C# language. My options were: Objective C: pretty obvious, learn to code on iOS and make millions of dollars writing apps. Ruby on Rails: also obvious, write world-class web services and make millions of dollars. After reading this article I thought hm, maybe I should learn Go. I can still write web services on...
Jawbone Launches Up For Android, Plans... →
Hard to believe Nike is passing on all the Android users. Prioritizing iOS first, sure. But missing half the market only makes sense if you have something else up your sleeve.
Microsoft tempts Windows developers with $100 cash... →
This is a bad move on so many fronts. First if the app store(s) are doing so well why do they need fluffing? Second this will certainly not bring out the quality apps. How many dev shops out there with great iOS or Android apps were thinking “hey, if only we had $100 to spend on a dev we’d put that in the Windows app store”? The answer of course is none. If there was money to be made they would...
