Bitcoin Weekly 2013 May 1: Jeremy Liew on BTC, CEO of Braintree dismisses Bitcoins, BBC UK publishes awesome segment
This has been a relatively calm week for Bitcoin, but even as there’s no storm, no sudden bubble in price, or massive volatility to report—there’s a great deal of media attention simmering in the pot.

Interviews, videos, and even infographics are becoming more accessible and this might mean that laypeople (listening to these broadcasts and reading these articles) will have an easier time understanding what Bitcoin is and how it... more »
IT organizations have adopted virtualization to improve server utilization, and the move is also driving changes in storage architectures. These organizations are looking beyond the traditional siloed approach to storage, in which storage is dedicated to a specific application or a small set of applications, toward shared storage architectures. Shared storage systems allow numerous applications to store data on the same system and access that data more quickly and efficiently. With shared storage architectures, organizations can simplify operations, drive efficiencies, grow infinitely, enable business agility, and offer nonstop operation. Flash memory technology is having a profound impact on storage architectures thanks... more »

While enterprises are suffering headaches from managing and harvesting their own Big Data sets, they've probably forgotten there's a whole ocean of it out there, in the form of free public data that's accessible to one and all. What's more, this publicly available data often provides just as many useful insights, if not more so, than some company's own data. Few will argue that government data isn't a valuable resource, but the question is, how do companies go about collecting it? The answer might just lie with Enigma, an information discovery startup with incredibly lofty ambitions that recently pitched itself at... more »

What with all of the fuss about the recently rejected CISPA bill, which would have given authorities the right to demand user information from web companies without notifying the individual's concerned, more than a few people will be on heightened alert about their privacy. As such, they might just be interested to know which web companies they can safely trust their data with.
