Fav5

My pick of the weeks' top 5 items of interest:
  1. Good news: the number of people working in IT jobs in the US has hit a record 4 million, and the unemployment rate is a meager 2.3%. Advice to incoming freshmen: Give computer science a try.

  2. Chill. It's just a phone.

  3. Neil McAllister asks an intriguing question: "Is the Web still the Web?"

  4. Digg has rolled out a new recommendation system based on the wisdom of crowds.

  5. Some cool new stuff: Protocol Buffers from Google and the BOSS API from Yahoo (see my post from yesterday).
