Fabulous read from Thomas Piketty on Germany's own history of debt relief, vs its current stance towards Greece:

"We need to look ahead. Europe was founded on debt forgiveness and investment in the future. Not on the idea of endless penance."
In a forceful interview with German newspaper Die Zeit, the star economist Thomas Piketty calls for a major conference o…

+Plex hacked, change your password ASAP!

Another day, another security breach... Plex has been compromised. Passwords were stolen, though they were hashed and salted, and should be safe. That said, it's still best practice to change your password, just in case. The affected users might be limited to those that have a Plex Forums account, if you've never created a Forums account, you might be safe, but hey, in the name of security, you might as well change your password anyways.
If you use the Plex media server for your movie and TV library, you’ll need to change your password this morning. The company announced it’s forum servers were hacked, leaving email addresses, forum messages, and hashed passwords vulnerable.

Finally! Thanks for stating this, +Mike Elgan!

Though, admittedly, this thinking could bring an end to the biggest comedic competition on the Internet...

  ...Apple's SpellCheck vs. Google's Algorithms!  :-)
 
Forget algorithms. People rule!

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/MFSNhH )

For more than a decade now, we've been witnessing a Google-led process by which things that used to be done by people were instead done by computers, databases, applications and algorithms.

This technology-centric approach provided the immediate benefit of lowering the cost of processing content -- but at a cost. The machines never quite "got it," and they often produced results that were a little weird, incomplete, tone deaf and ultimately less-than-compelling to users.

Never mind, we were told. The algorithms are getting better all the time. They'll match and overtake human curators any day now. Just wait.

However, in the past month, it's become clear that Silicon Valley has realized that nothing beats the human touch. The tech industry has gotten impatient and has stopped waiting for the algorithms to surpass human curation—or, more accurately, they can't afford to wait.

Here's what you need to know about the new imperative to replace algorithms with humans:
