Do we need a little more Singaporean-style capitalism in the US? They help, and even force to some extent, citizens to take care of themselves. Isn't self reliance a key to self determination? Via +David Williams. #f  
Lee Kuan Yew, the first prime minister of Singapore, died last week at age 91. Almost every obituary has remarked on the radical transition his leadership heralded. As John Fund wrote at National Review: By embracing free trade, capital formation, vigorous meritocratic education, low taxes, and a reliable judicial [...]

Automattic Acquires +WooThemes???
This is just crazy to me! I have the utmost respect for Automattic as a company. And I've used +WooCommerce from basically the day it launched. I never would have imagined that Automattic would buy them out...! 

It's interesting to note that +Matt Mullenweg in his post (below) says they've acquired "WooCommerce" not "WooThemes" (the company that built and develops WooCommerce), but on the WooThemes blog they state that their entire company has "joined" Automattic (http://goo.gl/AUxJ87). So if it's all about WooCommerce, does that mean the themes and other plugins like Sensei will die?

I'm interested to see where this leads and how it'll change the future of WooCommerce. Will we have to install Jetpack to be able to install WooCommerce? Will many of the extensions become free, or much cheaper? #f  
For years, we've been working on democratizing publishing, and today more people have independent sites built on open source software than ever before in the history of the web. Now, we want to mak...

Not where you'd expect something like this to come from. Hope we can get around our political differences for the good of mankind. 
Researchers will bring the vaccine stateside and track it for the FDA so it can be manufactured and sold in the US.

An Autonomous Video Drone for Everyone
Innovation helps things go from complex and requiring lots of training or practice, to making things simple an easy for anyone to use. Lily makes drone-mounted video an automated breeze! Something that used to take 2 people (1 to fly, one to control the camera) can now be done without anyone actively operating it. Check it out: https://www.lily.camera/

I'd just like to see longer battery life. 20 mins isn't much.

+Tevya Washburn I love it! It's an ingenious drone that doesn't require any lessons.

It just follows your ass anywhere you go - I'd really like to market the Lily Camera...So many people will be desperate for one...people just have to know about it first...

Some good advice: don't offer an unlimited plan, ever. Hosting companies have been making that mistake and in addition to the issues outlined in this article, have also been annoying and driving away customers, since it's not truly unlimited. #f
Pricing products is hard. It’s one of the most difficult decisions you’ll make when creating any type of product (SaaS or otherwise), as there’s no “easy” or “right” answer to “how much should I charge for my product?”

Want To Be More Productive?
Then be strategic about how you rest, take breaks, nap, and vacation. The old "pull yourself up by your own bootstraps, we're going to pull an all-nighter until this is done" mentality really isn't effective.

"A new and growing body of multidisciplinary research shows that strategic renewal — including daytime workouts, short afternoon naps, longer sleep hours, more time away from the office and longer, more frequent vacations — boosts productivity, job performance and, of course, health." #ns

"So if your VM deployment is vulnerable, unpatched, and the administrator account is compromised – or the administrator is malicious – Venom is a real problem. Otherwise, it’s something to be aware of, but not something to panic over." #f
Tino Kremer originally shared to Tech:
 
A serious problem, but perhaps a little bit hyped? It doesn't compare at all to Heartbleed. 
On Wednesday, CrowdStrike released details on CVE-2015-3456, also known as Venom. Venom is a vulnerability in the floppy drive emulation code used by many virtualization platforms. However, while it’s possible that a large number systems are impacted by this flaw, it isn’t something that can be passively exploited.

I’ve been very open about my struggles with depression over the years. A few weeks ago, I participated in a Q&A with Greg Avery at the Denver Business Journal titled Brad Feld Q&A: Bringing depression out of the shadows in startups. It was part of a more extensive series on Depression, entrepreneurs and startups. Since I’m still... Read more

Story
Introduction
I'm a small business owner, marketer, designer, WordPress expert, and entrepreneur. I'm a Mormon Christian, a happily married husband, father, and life-hacker.

I like tech a lot when it makes my life easier, and I hate it when it makes my life harder. I'm a huge fan of simplifying and minimizing possessions and unnecessary demands on time. And also of making sure work done is effective, and not just efficiency  targeted at something unimportant. I love my wife, my son, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The best breakfast I've had in a long time. I had the special today which was a chicken-sausage hash. It was very good. Service was great too.

Always good food. This place could use to patch their seats. And the stuffed French toast isn't that great. It's so smothered in strawberry syrup, you can't taste much else. But overall the food is good. The "kids eat free" deal, was a pleasant bonus.

Awesome sandwiches. I love all that they make that are hot and have pastrami! They were very gracious and even let us pickup up sandwiches half an hour before opening! Highly recommend.

Horribly Slow Internet! I go to Starbucks for the wifi, but usually buy a drink while I'm there. This place has the SLOWEST Internet I've experienced in a long time. The 2 locations in Spokane, WA (almost due north of here) have Google-provided Internet, that's incredibly fast. This doesn't, and it's not just slower, it's painfully slow. Everything took 3X as long as it should.

The food is very good, just make sure to put sauce in your heaping bowl until you can see it. The service was amazing. They went way out of their way to take care of our children and make sure they enjoyed the experience as much as we did the food. They gave our son several origami animals and showed him how to make the frog jump, the bird flap its wings etc. Highly recommend.
