I’m rebooting my blog today with a new thread of posts, a weekly roundup of the most interesting links I’ve come to in the last few days. I’m calling it weekly, because I hope to do it on a regular basis (so bare with me).

Interesting things happen this week: PS4 launch event, VS2013 launch event, to name a few.
So, behold to the links:

  1. Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Launch Event - the keynote and more (did you know Microsoft had hired Erich Gamma? - of GoF fame)
  2. Microsoft takes development into the cloud with Visual Studio Online - a cloud-hosted IDE version
  3. Sony on PS4 launch - "We're very, very confident"
  4. PlayStation 4 vs. Xbox One: The Controllers - check also The Specs and The Games
  5. A Neuroscientist’s Radical Theory of How Networks Become Conscious
  6. The Dark Art of Bots: How to Make $2 Million Online Without a Human Audience
  7. Google Play for Education is shipping on the Nexus 7 - nice one from Google
  8. Why Founders Don’t Sell - on Snapchat’s rejection of 3bn(!) takeover from Facebook
  9. Simple Logging Middleware (Katana Part 4)
