AP News : The Orange County Register
President Vladimir Putin on Thursday called the Internet a CIA project and made comments about Russia's biggest search engine Yandex, sending the company's shares plummeting.

The Kremlin has been anxious to exert greater control over the Internet, which opposition activists - barred from national television - have used to promote their ideas and organize protests.

Russia's parliament this week passed a law requiring social media websites to keep their servers in Russia and save all information about their users for at least half a year. Also, businessmen close to Putin now control Russia's leading social media network, VKontakte.

Amazon reportedly laying the groundwork for its own delivery service | The Verge
In a few years, Amazon may handle the entire delivery process for your impulse Prime purchases. The Wall Street Journal reports that Amazon is in the early stages of branching out its delivery operation into something that could eventually compete directly against UPS and FedEx — two companies that play a critical role in getting its packages to customers today. The online retailer is already testing such a service with trucks making "last mile" drop-offs in San Francisco, New York, and Los Angeles, according to the Journal. Aside from giving shoppers greater control over where and when they take a package, Amazon's big plan would also eventually cut expenses and bring the company closer to offering same-day delivery in more cities. Amazon has already established its own delivery network in the UK.  business  ecommerce  fedex  usps  ups  technology

GitHub Sexual Harassment Investigation | The Mary Sue
"This is where we, as a society, don a flight suit and proudly declare “Mission accomplished!” It’s like collecting pink yogurt tops to fight breast cancer. It’s unclear how it addresses the problem, but it does provide a distant sense that we’re good people who care.

The real work to be done is in ending the systematic marginalization that happened to Horvath. The thing that has to change is GitHub launching an investigation without any credibility. We have to ask men in tech to consider the unconscious privilege that makes tech a hostile place to work in ways they haven’t even considered."
