Today we have a few top stories for you. First, Apple announced their acquisition of FoundationDB. I am curious what this purchase is really about, but we will have to wait and see. Both Sides of the Table brings us an interview with Fred Wilson that is very informative. Lastly, Seth Godin talks about how some of the harder things are more worthwhile. It is definitely a good, short read.
As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
