We did a hangout and talked a bit about HealthCare.gov. Check it out!
One of the cooler things I did this week...Cloud Office Hours Hangout with Rackspace CTO, John Engates. He talked about his experience advising the White House on healthcare.gov. Spoiler Alert - Testing (and more testing) is the key to success with any website.

Very interesting: +Adobe is trying to convert the subscription skeptics with $10-per-month +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and +Adobe Photoshop offer, good only for owners of Photoshop CS3 or later who sign up this year. That's a good price compared to the Photoshop-alone price, which is $10 for the first year and $20 after that, or the full Creative Cloud, which is $50 a month but overkill for people who don't need video editing, page layout, Web design, and other tools.

I still expect the subscription-haters are gonna hate it, though, because guess what? It's still a subscription and it'll stop working when they stop paying. For those happy with just Lightroom, it costs $150 and will continue to be available as a perpetual-license purchase.
