  2. Serverless AWS Framework for Python — preview of a sweet Flask-like tool coming from Amazon. Lambda is seriously cool.

  4. Machine Money and People Money — Tim O’Reilly takes the idea of Universal Basic Income for a walk, encountering John Maynard Keynes, Nick Hanauer Paul Buchheit, Samuel Johnson, Hal Varian, and Hank Green.
  5. Apache Whimsy Board Agenda ToolThe ASF manages its board meetings via a text file that contains the agenda for the meeting. PMC reports, comments on those reports, and action items associated with those PMCs are stored in separate places in that text file. The agenda tool brings this data together and makes it easier to both navigate and update that file. (via Sam Ruby)
