First things first
I'm back from a short break, and I have some good news and some bad news.
The good news is that I'm now aiming to publish Monday-Thursday. Perhaps I'll publish an occasional weekend issue to capture any big late-week news, and perhaps I'll miss a day here and there. But four times a week feels like the right target in order to keep the issues lighter and a little more digestible.
The bad news is that I don't have any commentary up top today, nor for the links -- well, except for the first one. (If you're a new subscriber, I usually include my take on big industry news and other stuff in this section, and include short annotations for each link.) Mostly, this is because I couldn't help perusing the news and adding some links while I was supposed to be relaxing. So now it's Monday, I have collected 38 items and I also have a new day job since I last published (which has been consuming some mental bandwidth).
If you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen that I'm now working with the fine folks at Pivotal. This shouldn't affect the ARCHITECHT newsletter or podcast at all, and could even help improve them in the long run. I will still be me. Consider yourself disclaimed ;-)
