Much quieter this week vulnerability wise, no more WannaCry or anything! More posts on Stack Overflow, VIM and Bitcoin to keep you going through Sunday.

Enjoy!


Helping One Million Developers Exit Vim

Starting off the week with a bit of comedy, Stack Overflow does some analytics on who has the most trouble exiting VIM.

Bitcoin price jump

In the last week Bitcoin has surged in price only to fall again later in the week. I'm sure there are still a lot of people kicking themselves for not investing in the currency years ago.

Stack Overflows journey to HTTPS

This is a really long post, but if you only have time to read one, make it this. Nick Carver (who we've [featured before!]({{< ref "2017-04-30-issue-3.md" >}})) goes into the journey that Stack Overflow went through to go full HTTPS.

China, The Internet of Things and How to Destroy Your Own Company

This is something I had never really considered, but apparently Chinese manufacturers have a tendency to steal IoT companies IP. I just assumed that companies had contracts and other pieces in place, apparently this isn't the case at all.

Introducing the Blockstack Browser

I'm going to be completely honest and say I have no idea what this new browser is going to be about. Maybe someone else has an idea? It looks like a new way to build platforms and browse the web? Let us know in the comments!
