Netflix Tells Court It Isn't a Video Service Provider | Hollywood Reporter
A small municipality in Missouri is attempting to use a law designed for facilities based video providers to charge Netflix and Hulu taxes. Although the verbiage of Creve Coeur's (no, I don't know how to pronounce that) ordinance fairly clearly exempts internet-based services, the case reflects a broader trend that is likely to continue impacting Internet companies for the foreseeable future: if you make money, the governments of the world are going to try to regulate and tax you.

The National Hurricane Center predicted Florence’s landfall spot within two miles of reality — Quartz
The National Hurricane Center predicted Florence’s landfall spot within two miles of reality September 14, 2018 at 03:10PM https://ift.tt/2NJstLf

Five days ago, the US National Hurricane Center predicted the spot where Hurricane Florence would make landfall. Their prediction turned out to be within two miles of where Florence actually touched down this morning (Sept 14).

As Weather Channel meteorologist Stephanie Abrams put it, storm-forecast precision “doesn’t get much closer than that.”

Can’t get much closer then that! Great job @NHC_Atlantic ! pic.twitter.com/YQDHJVmQNn

Florence made landfall near Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, at 7:15am on Friday morning.

Hurricanes can be chaotic systems, extremely difficult (and dangerous) to track accurately in real time, let alone predict. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the US agency under which the National Hurricane Center operates, includes an elite team of pilots who fly directly into hurricanes to be able to gather data to understand the intensity and direction of hurricanes.

That makes a two-mile error five days in advance an astounding feat—as Axios points out, the average five-day error is closer to 250 miles.

The forecast gave residents nearly a week of lead time to understand if they should evacuate or not. (Still, many people who were advised to evacuate have chosen to ride out the storm instead.)

That doesn’t mean every hurricane forecast from now on will be as good; but overall, the trend is that the National Hurricane Center is getting better and better at predicting where a storm will make landfall farther and farther in advance:

The National Hurricane Center is getting better and better at predicting where a hurricane will make landfall—represented here in number of nautical miles of distance between predicted spot and reality.

Why Microservices Will Become a Core Business Strategy for Most Organizations
"Microservices, by virtue of offering a well-structured way to engage and integrate with the world at large in scalable, digital terms, now appear to hold the answer to enabling faster digital transformation, lowering our levels of of tight coupling and technical debt, and substantially increasing much needed levels of IT integration. More centrally to business impact and growth, they also make it possible for us to build and cultivate bigger and more robust digital ecosystems with our stakeholders. This includes 3rd party developers and business partners to our very own workers and customers."

The Bailouts for the Rich Are Why America Is So Screwed Right Now | Stoller | Vice
The official response to the financial crisis ended a 75-year-old American policy of pursuing broad homeownership as a social goal. Since at least Franklin Delano Roosevelt, American leaders had deliberately organized the financial system to put more people in their own homes. In 2011, the Obama administration changed this policy, pushing renting over owning. The CEO of Bank of America, Brian Moynihan, echoed this view shortly thereafter. There are many reasons for the change, and not all of them were bad. But what’s important to understand is that the financial crisis was a full-scale assault on the longstanding social contract linking Americans with the financial system through their house.
