Webpage archive
A good replacement for Pinboard's sometimes-broken archive function. This saves a copy of a webpage in case it changes or gets taken down.

If you want to stop paying for Pinboard, you can get raindrop.io and augment its lack of archiving function by manually using this site to archive the pages you want to save.

With 9 Short Words, Google Just Made a Stunning Announcement That Will Change Everything You Think About Google | Inc.com
"By the way, one of the many things Facebook did to combat the rise of Google+? 

It bought a scrappy photo-sharing social network that had started at basically the exact same time as Google+, with just two coders who at first attracted total of $500,000 in investment, built their app in just eight weeks, and wound up millions of users overnight.

You might have heard of it. It's called Instagram."

The Long Story Behind Karelia's New Logo | Karelia Software
Developer's app is integrated into MacOSX, Steve Jobs tells the developer that's just the way it is, but the developer keeps on and learns that the quick, nimble nature of a small business can beat the Fortune 500.

"Because we are a small company, we are nimble — much more so than a Fortune 500 company or a bowl of petunias."

André Staltz - The Web began dying in 2014, here's how
predictions, obsolete-discontinued-abandoned = "The Web may die like most other technologies do: simply by becoming less attractive than newer technologies. And like most obsolete technologies, they don’t suddenly disappear, neither do they disappear completely. You can still buy a Walkman and listen to a tape with it, but the technology has nevertheless lost its collective relevance. The Web’s death will come as a gradual decay of its necessity, not as a dramatic loss."

Microsoft Today Ends Support For Windows 8, Old Versions Of Internet Explorer | TechCrunch
Haha, I rememeber when I was doing tech work at Staple Sewing and I told Eddie to avoid Windows 8, at first he agreed. But then he talked to that half-cocked son of his and he said "Windows 8 is the future! I have to move to that!" ... And now here we are about 3 years later and the shit has been scrapped. Hahaha.

Why Google finally has to worry about the stock market
SUMMARY: 2016 could be a rocky year for tech companies, and the market in general, as the free money party ends. (Fed Reserve raises interest rates above 0% and Silicon Valley's wild money takes a rest.)

Dan Bricklin invented the spreadsheet—but don’t hold that against him - Quartz
"What advice do you have for developers trying to come up with the next killer app? We need both general-purpose and specific tools. I’m a little concerned with Apple’s message of “there’s an app for that,” which implies that everything is vertical. This is how Steve Jobs thought about a lot of things—computers should be able to figure out things for you, rather than providing you with a general-purpose tool that you could figure out how to use on your own. But by restricting what apps can do, and how they coordinate, they are slowly stripping [the general-purpose idea] away."

Never trust a corporation to do a library’s job — The Message — Medium
david-vs-goliath = Not that anyone was fighting Google on this, but if they had been, here's proof that they would have won if they had stuck it out. ... update: Just realized that The Internet Archive (archive.org) has been doing this since 1996, 2 years before Google was founded. ............ business-culture = "As it turns out, organizing the world’s information isn’t always profitable. Projects that preserve the past for the public good aren’t really a big profit center. Old Google knew that, but didn’t seem to care. The desire to preserve the past died along with 20% time, Google Labs, and the spirit of haphazard experimentation."
