Excerpt: A new rifle goes on sale on Wednesday, and it's not like any other. It uses lasers and computers to make shooters very accurate. A startup gun company in Texas developed the rifle, which is so effective that some in the shooting community say it should not be sold to the public. It's called the TrackingPoint rifle. On a firing range just outside Austin in the city of Liberty Hill, a novice shooter holds one and takes aim at a target 500 yards away. Normally it takes years of practice to hit something at that distance. But this shooter nails it on the first try. The rifle's scope features a sophisticated color graphics display. The shooter locks a laser on the target by pushing a small button by the trigger. It's like a video game.... read the full post.

Excerpt: Hi, I’m Mark Nottingham. I currently chair the IETF HTTPbis Working Group. I usually write here about the Web, protocol design, HTTP, and caching. Once in a while, I’ll write about economics, travel or living in Australia. Find out more. A common part of HTTP-based APIs is telling the client that something has gone wrong. Most APIs do this in some fashion, whether they call it a “Fault” (very SOAP-y), “Error” or whatever. Most of them define a new format for just this purpose; for examples, see Amazon’s, OpenStack’s, Twitter’s, Facebook’s, and SalesForce’s. Twitter's is fairly representative: Here, they associate a human-readable message and an error code with the error.... read the full post.

Excerpt: This morning, The New Yorker launched Strongbox, an online place where people can send documents and messages to the magazine, and we, in turn, can offer them a reasonable amount of anonymity. It was put together by Aaron Swartz, who died in January, and Kevin Poulsen. Kevin explains some of the background in his own post, including Swartz’s role and his survivors’ feelings about the project. (They approve, something that was important for us here to know. ) The underlying code, given the name DeadDrop, will be open-source, and we are very glad to be the first to bring it out into the world, fully implemented.... read the full post.

Excerpt: How deeply do you consider the impacts of building a public API for your startup? It's no small decision: you could be enabling your disruptor. APIs are incredibly powerful tools for enabling partners, building ecosystems and engendering success among customers. For example, Salesforce's Force ecosystem, which enables developers to build products atop customer Salesforce installations, increases the value customers derive from Salesforce selling more seats and retaining customers longer. Google's Maps API enables developers to spread Google Maps, building the brand, increasing distribution and all the while improving ranking by sending back user feedback signals.... read the full post.
