Xamarin: Mobilizing Blockchain
The revolutionary disintermediating power of Blockchain is taking the world by storm. It's opening up the doors to endless possibilities for businesses to become more lean and consumers more empowered than ever before.

Why Google Needs To Validate Human Beings
I just finished reading this great post on the spam arms race problem that Google and other search engines have. This is a great summary of the problem in general. A really interesting implied point of the article is that in some ways the algorithmic approach to search indexing is impossibly flawed. It puts algorithm gamers eternally in front of great content because people focused on great content aren't gaming algorithms (or more realistically they are afraid to because they might get blacklisted or penalized). So there will always be some latency between the great content coming to the top of search results while search engines look to filter out gamed results. Near the end of the post he says:
