It is that time of year again as TechCrunch reports on Mary Meeker’s 2016 Internet Trends Report. It is always an excellent analysis of the trends and should be required reading for everyone in our industry. TechCrunch also has the first report of the Salesforce purchase of Demandware. I don’t talk about acquisitions too often, but this is fairly big, about $2.8 Billion big. Lastly, XKCD has a great comic about map age, but it is an interesting view into world history as well. It is definitely something you should look at today.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
