Every day content disappears from the internet and it's have a huge impact on research as more of our content gets digitized. On a personal level much of my writing has simply disappeared and it's a widespread issue. We need to find a way to formalize web archiving. http://tcrn.ch/1hHYno6

Wall Street showed little patience last week, as tech stocks got whacked but good. My colleague, Alex Wilhelm and I explore the challenges Dropbox could face should it decide to IPO. http://tcrn.ch/1JppZUX

You might not have known, but the NSA -- yes, that NSA -- has a Tech Transfer Program. When it transferred the tech that became Apache NiFi to open source last year, the engineers who had been working on the project launched their own startup. Hortonworks bought it today and is folding it into its company. http://tcrn.ch/1MLejRP

China represents an enormous market opportunity for US cloud companies, but don't expect Chinese internet companies to simply cede the market to them without a fight. http://bit.ly/1htyJn1
Chinese internet companies are making an effort to build worldwide marketshare, but while they do this, US cloud companies have their eyes on China.
