Weekly Wrap-Up 3-04-2016

This week’s newsletter is here.

There’s always stuff that doesn’t make it into the newsletter. Here’s this week’s list:

Linkedin’s CEO Is Giving His Entire $14 Million Bonus To His Employees
Or, just pay people what they’re worth. Up front.

11 Of The Best iPhone and iPad Apps From February

The Feds Have Let the Cyber World Burn. Let’s Put the Fire Out
Hacking, of any kind, can’t become acceptable. Or legislated, especially when relying on the All Writs Act of 1789. And no, that’s not a typo.

Book of the Week
Patricia Highsmith’s The Talented Mr. Ripley
Really looking forward to this book. It’s been on my TBR list for a long time.

This Week’s Music*:
I have weekly playlists over on Spotify*. I ‘m not convinced it’s possible to share them. Therefore, it’s highly unlikely this link will work unless you have a Spotify account.  So, here’s what’s on it this week.

Mac Davis: Music In My Life

Billy Squier: She’s A Runner

Elvis Costello: This is Hell

Paul McCartney – Blackbird

Wham!: Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go

Ella Fitzgerald: Someone To Watch Over Me

Rammstein: Du Hast

*I believe in paying all artists for their work. Streaming music services allow for the discovery of new music, or reminders of great music I haven’t thought about in a while. I hope that if you hear something you like you’ll consider purchasing the song (or album) for your own collection.
