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.
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.
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 …

LinkedIn Traffic Up 323% in Past Year, Users More Likely to be on Gmail  —  Have you been getting a flurry in LinkedIn invitations in the past few months?  I have been receiving a few requests a week, so I wasn't surprised to find that the market share of US visits to LinkedIn was up 323% in the past year …

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.

Dave Winer / Scripting News:
What is Facebook worth?  —  There's been a debate raging on Techmeme, the website that turns the tech blogosphere into a mail list, about the value of Facebook.  —  I have two answers to the question: 1.  A lot. 2.  Or very little.  Depending on what they do.
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 …

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.

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.

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 …
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.

Ed Oswald / BetaNews:
Windows Live Mobile Search 2.0 Out  —  Microsoft released the second version of its Windows Live Mobile Search application on Friday, including some new features for both the standalone and Web-based versions of the client.  —  Versions of the software are available for Windows Mobile, J2ME, and in beta for BlackBerry devices.

Andrew / NotebookReview.com:
Asus Eee PC First Thoughts  —  The Asus Eee PC 701 notebook was officially announced at the beginning of June at Computex Taipei.  Today I met with Asus to get a close-up look at this new device and talk more about the company's goals with it.  If Asus really can pull off selling this device for $250 …
