- Nathan Myhrvold's Intellectual Ventures Using Over 1,000 Shell Companies To Hide Patent Shakedown - The only reason I call the patent system "broken" is that I can't think of a more appropriate word that's fit for polite company.

It's time to buckle down and deliver some code.
- Plugin Authors: Toward a Better Future - I personally do not count breaking every plugin in the Rails ecosystem as "better." But if you've got a plugin that you want or need to make Rails 3 compatible, this is essential information.
- Using Bundler in Real Life - Scenario-based workflows for the new Bundler gem.
- New Feature: Amazon S3 now supports Object Versioning - It'll be interesting to see how long it takes someone to build a blob-based SCM on top of this.
