Excellent work g+. I don't appear to be following anyone anymore. Nothing is showing up in my stream to read and I can't re-add anyone to my circles. Not happy. :(

Tactically building an arsenal of patents to protect yourself or your partners is pointless when you get sued by a company that doesn't make anything.

Peter Norvig's library on Google Books.

There's a lot of interesting books in the list. Now if only I can find the time and money...

I was looking for a reason to learn R http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R_(programming_language) and I may have found it with Oracle's Big Data Appliance.

I just wish Oracle could write a good press release (and stop screwing with great open source projects).

To see how Erlang and Haskell compare, I've decided to learn web app development using both languages. I'm a complete novice, so it should be a fun ride.

From my novice viewpoint, I don't think either language is suited for all types of web applications, but I want to investigate their strengths and weaknesses and identify areas where they excel.

Is this really something a technology company should be proud about?

It must be incredibly demoralizing to their own Windows Phone division, all their hard work is losing money while the Microsoft patent tax is raking it in. If Windows 8 doesn't sell well they'll probably shut it all down minus a small group to reskin android with a bing default search (until search gets shuttered too).

Or jettison the rest too- why bother with engineers or competition at all when the USPTO is printing you money with 'TBD' instead of a dollar amount on them?

I'm making a list of AI bloggers. Does anyone know of good (active) AI-related blogs to follow?

What I would like from Google+

I would love it if g+ would auto suggest circles to categorise people under. I spend so much time figuring out where to put people. I would rather spend my time reading my stream than administering it.

Think you're writing secure web applications?


Learn the common web hacking techniques and how to stop them:

Google's Web Application Exploits and Defenses
http://google-gruyere.appspot.com/part2

Google's Browser Security Handbook
http://code.google.com/p/browsersec/wiki/Main

The OWASP Prevention Cheat Sheet Series
https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Cheat_Sheets

Mozilla's resources for Web Application Security
http://wiki.mozilla.org/WebAppSec


Now test you hacking knowledge by (legally) cracking these sites:

http://www.hackthissite.org/ is a legal and safe network security resource where users test their hacking skills on various challenges and learn about hacking and network security.

Google's take on this http://google-gruyere.appspot.com/part1 shows you how web application vulnerabilities can be exploited and how to defend against these attacks.
