Similar things are surely happening in the Bay Area 
Shell companies are used to shield the identities of buyers in the competition to secure condos at the Time Warner Center and other high-end buildings. This is the first installment in a five-part series.

Hi everyone. I recently wrote up this list of recommended subjects for someone starting out in a career in professional software engineering. There are many interesting & useful subjects left out, but I tried hard to cut this down to the bare minimum that every experienced generalist should aspire to know (eventually), ca. 2015.

I'd appreciate your thoughts on this, even half-baked ones. Anything I've left out? Anything that seems superfluous?

My current feeling is that the biggest omission might be the absence of machine learning and statistical methods. These are not required to have a decent programming career today (and I know little about them myself), but are becoming increasingly important. I have a feeling that those things might become critical over the next 2 decades, in the same way that knowing how to write code that uses Internet protocols has gradually become de rigeur since 1995.

Thoughtful piece on unlimited music services and which artists are served best by them. 
Subscription services don't work for niche artists: they offer less money from fewer fans. It's much better to get direct payment.

I originally released afl-fuzz in November of 2013. Back then, it was simply another take on an idea I toyed with in 2007, inspired in large part by the work on corpus distillation done by Tavis Ormandy. It almost ended up in the dustbin of history: early on, the project had many shortcomings, ...
