    Our connection economy thrives when people understand what to expect from one another. We're more likely than ever to engage in interactions that involve an exchange, something that deserves a specific clarification. I'll do this and you'll do that. More and more agreements are being made, because more and more transactions happen outside or between organizations. The question then: What does good drafting look like? If the agreement starts with "whereas" and continues along with, "notwithstanding the foregoing," and when it must be decoded by a lawyer on the other side, something has (...)

    If the Sony hack has taught us anything, it's that keeping incriminating emails in your inbox is a terrible idea. Even if you aren't doing anything particularly bad, if someone gets into you email, everything you've ever said could be out in the open. Here's how to make sure that doesn't happen by automatically backing up and deleting everything in your Gmail account on a schedule. Read more... -- , ,

    We are all designers. You may call yourself a front-end developer, but if you spend hours shaving half-seconds off an interaction, that’s user experience and you, my friend, are a designer. If the client asks, “Can you migrate all my old content to the new CMS?” and you answer, “Of course we can, but should we?”, you are a designer. Even our users are designers. Think about it.

    OpenStack can make for strange bedfellows. If any one vendor served as the proprietary bogeyman to motivate the creation of an open source private cloud stack, it’s VMware. For more than a decade, the virtualization giant owned the core infrastructure of Global 2000 data centers, only to have the industry fight back in 2010 with the non-profit OpenStack Foundation. As the industry rallied around open-source OpenStack, proprietary VMware looked to be reeling. That was then. This is now. Today VMware is emerging as a serious champion of OpenStack, pivoting quickly to prove that they were not (...) -- MTIyMjkzMTk2MzY4ODAxMDQ5.jpg, Cloud

    New Web video startup Vessel plans to challenge YouTube in 2015. And with the might of Hulu chief executive Jason Kilar and chief technology officer Richard Tom standing behind it, Vessel could even have a chance. The target of speculation since July, Vessel released an update on its progress on Wednesday that suggests the site will finally open up “early next year.” Until then, here’s everything we know about the startup so far: Vessel Will Offer Ad-Free Subscriptions It’s hard to imagine the people behind Hulu providing ad-free video, but that’s exactly what’s happening here.

    ReadWrite's Inside Tech series takes a close look at the workspaces and office culture of companies creating new technologies. Mikkel Svane, the CEO of Zendesk, nervously runs his hands through his luxurious, dark mane as he tries to explain how he got here. He's sitting in a light-filled conference room overlooking Market Street in a still-rough part of San Francisco, on the top floor of a building. He's just a few blocks away from a hotel where he remembers waiting for a phone call that never came from venture capitalists who rejected his pitch to invest in Zendesk, then a nascent (...) -- MTI2NzQ0OTk2MDA2MTI5NjM0.jpg, Work

    Summoning 4chans, 9gags, Reddits and other denizens of easily-digested content, Liberty Games stripped apart a dilapidated “Baby Doll” pinball arcade machine and turned it into this meme-spouting monstrosity. A complete redo of the vinyl and graphics to sport dozens of familiar internet tropes was first, then they had Shapeways create internal scenery and finally some electronics were added to spice things up. We have seen PINMAME-based digital machines but this took a different path. Pinball machines this old pre-date common transistors so they rely on electro-mechanicals for everything. (...) -- internet-meme-pinball.mp4,

    LONDON — Wearable technology is great, but so much of it is obsessed with getting you fit. Apps can track your heartbeat, encourage you to hit the gym, and remind you just how many calories were in that last donut. But what about a product designed for more relaxed individuals? Wouldn't it be helpful, say, if a wristband could tell if you doze off while watching the TV, then automatically record the rest of the show?

    The latest in a string of storms noisily marched across Southern California on Wednesday, hurling lightning bolts, coating mountains with snow and unleashing downpours that triggered a freeway-blocking mudslide before mostly moving on. "It was rather rare to see lightning all night long, as this storm system moved across the region," the National Weather Service said, noting that the tempest's instability was similar to a heavy rain event last week that produced no lightning at all.
