7 stories to read this weekend

What a busy week. I spent most of the week at the GigaOM East offices and Pier 60 in New York City where we hosted our second Structure:Data conference. It was a sellout. I’m heading home a day early as I have a busy week ahead. However, between all the meetings and conversations, I had enough time to read some of my favorite sources and curate these seven links for you folks to read this weekend.
