The Morning News - South by South-BEST!

If like me you’re not at SXSW, here’s what you’re missing. “Or hear a lively discussion about the rise of the “blogebrity,” moderated by a man named Kyle Bunch, the very person who coined the word “blogebrity” and then convinced the rest of us that blogebrity is actually a real thing rather than an excuse for Kyle to receive more links and get invited to blogger meet-ups.”

Adobe edits the development cycle | Reg Developer

Some good thoughts on how to manage code quality in a product development world. “Probably the most effective thing we did was institute per-engineer bug limits: if any engineer’s bug count passes 20, they have to stop working on features and fix bugs instead. The basic idea is that we keep the bug count low as we go so that we can send out usable versions to alpha testers earlier in the cycle and we don’t have the bugalanch at the end.”


New webradio service a la Pandora, but with plans to create desktop, portable and car music players that integrate with the service.
