Proud of +Pranav Ghai and all my friends at advisee startup +Calcbench Inc. for this second attributed use of their data analytic tools by WSJ reporter Theo Francis, who clearly "gets" the power of fintech open data.
Large companies across the U.S. are gearing up to increase capital spending, and the new business investment could give another boost to the strengthening U.S. economy.

Congrats to my friends at Calcbench for attribution to their in WSJ story on aggressive corporate tax claims http://ow.ly/G6ftF #bigdata #fintech #opendata
Buried in U.S. companies’ securities filings is an indicator for how aggressively they are working to shield their income from the IRS and other tax authorities.

Nice! 
Today EFF is pleased to announce Let’s Encrypt, a new certificate authority (CA) initiative that we have put together with Mozilla, Cisco, Akamai, Identrust, and researchers at the University of Michigan that aims to clear the remaining roadblocks to transition the Web from HTTP to HTTPS.

Created my first three non-default circles, because I have folks in all three default circles who are likely to be interested in tech stuff (nor not) and political/economics stuff (or not) and my professional/business activities (or not). Assignments to these "interest-based" circles are just a guess, of course, but but I know that friends/family/acquaintances doesn't work at all for this purpose. This is where circles really excel, I think, and I will be experimenting.
