Duncan Riley / TechCrunch:
LinkedIn Traffic Up, But Is It Enough?  —  The latest figures released by Hitwise indicate that traffic to LinkedIn is up 323% in the last year and 17% in the last week alone.  It's a healthy rise, and something LinkedIn should be pleased with, however the real question becomes …

Tim O'Reilly / O'Reilly Radar:
Why Congress Needs a Version Control System  —  I've been thinking lately just how much software developers take the existence of version control for granted, and how, with the notable exception of wikipedia, web 2.0 applications don't offer much in the way of version control functionality.
Duncan Riley / TechCrunch:
Live P2P Television: Streaming Now  —  The demonstration of Microsoft's LiveStation last week shone the spotlight back on the live P2P television market.  Whilst P2P on-demand video participants such as Joost and Bablegum gain the most attention in the broader market, the live television streaming market …

Rick Segal / The Post Money Value:
Shortsighted Greed  —  I recently had a conversation with two 'grand old men' of the VC community regarding an investment they had just completed.  It was a small start up which had taken angel money to get going.  The terms of that original deal were a simple debt instrument that converted (at a discount) upon the next round.
Long Zheng / istartedsomething:
Microsoft files patent for possible taskbar replacement  —  "A method for managing windows in a display" would sound particularly familiar to every Windows user as "that strip at the bottom of the screen with the Start button and clock" or perhaps the more formal name, the taskbar.
Gregg Keizer / Computerworld:
Brief: Microsoft forgets Mac users on Patch Tuesday  —  Amnesia strikes when it comes to three Mac Office 2004 bugs  —  For a few days this week, Microsoft Corp. temporarily had Mac amnesia as it omitted mention of the Mac edition of Office in a write-up that accompanied one of Tuesday's security updates.
Sharon Vosmek / VentureBeat:
Noob and other words worth thinking about  —  [Editor's note: This is an opinion piece by Sharon Vosmek, CEO of Astia, a group committed to building women leaders in technology start-ups.]  —  On a recent Sunday, I was listening to my husband and brother-in-law talk incessantly about World of Warcraft.
Mike Schramm / The Unofficial Apple Weblog:
On the trail of Fake Steve Jobs  —  Everybody's favorite anonymous Mac commentator might be a little closer to becoming not-so-anonymous.  If you checked out Fake Steve Jobs's site yesterday, you might have seen a short post about a marginally funny iPhone Haiku site.
Dion Almaer / Ajaxian:
Robot Replay: Watch your users via Ajax  —  Robot Replay is a Rails application written by Nitobi that allows you to record how your users use your site, and play it back later.  —  You include a piece of JavaScript on your site, and then user events are chunked, and sent up to RobotReplay every now and then.
Discussion: Web Analytics World
Om Malik / GigaOM:
Facebook IPO: Fact or Fiction  —  So I was wrong, and Mark Zuckerberg was right to not sell his company for 3/4th of a billion to Yahoo.  The prices since then have only gone up - even if they are prices of perceptions.  Microsoft has been linked to them with a price tag of $6 billion.
Robert McLaws / Windows-Now.com:
Windows Vista: Six Months In, Your Mileage May Vary  —  This may be news to Jessica Mintz of the Associated Press, but not every Vista user has been griping.  While it's easy to look to Chris Pirillo's 52-minute rant on Vista, people forget that Chris has made his professional career out of griping about Windows.
Alexander Sliwinski / Joystiq:
Sony: Enough 60GBs for "several months" in U.S. [Update 4]  —  Dave Karraker of Sony Computer Entertainment of America has contacted Joystiq to give us clarification on the story that would have made us believe Sony had truly lost its mind once and for all.  The fun never ends, does it?
Peter Glaskowsky / CNET News.com:
What could you make from an iPhone?  —  Since the iPhone's June 29 launch, we've seen several teardown reports— some from professionals, some demonstrating more enthusiasm than skill, and some that are just awful (but funny).  —  What's inside?  Well, you can read the details in reports …
Nick Gonzalez / TechCrunch:
Aviary's Incredibly Ambitious Art Project  —  The guys behind Worth1000 and Plime have been tooling away at a new venture called Aviary (although it's confusingly hosted at CreationOnTheFly.com).  With Aviary, the New York based team is aiming at the rather ambitious goal of not only creating …
