Singles now outnumber married people in America — and that's a good thing | PRI - http://www.pri.org/stories...
In 1950, singles were just 22 percent of the adult population. Now, they've taken over. More than half of American adults are single, and that may have some surprising benefits — from the way people join civic groups and socialize to how they take part in the lives of their hometowns. - Peter Murray

Software Development Practices: Getting Specific with Acceptance Criteria | OCLC Developer Network - http://oclc.org/develop...
If you’ve been following our product development practices series, you know how to think about identifying problems and articulating those problems as user stories. But even the best user story can’t encompass all of the details of the user experience that need to be considered in the development process. This week’s post explains the important role of acceptance criteria. - Peter Murray
Software Development Practices: Telling Your User's Story | OCLC Developer Network - http://oclc.org/develop...
Last week was the first in a series of posts about product development practices. In that post, Shelley discussed how important it is to identify the problem that the user needs to solve. This post will describe how anyone can write and understand User Stories that articulate the problem. User Stories are informal, simple, short and concise statements about what the user wants to accomplish. They focus entirely on what the user wants to do and deliberately avoid talking about how the technical solution will work. - Peter Murray

This is why you never end up hiring good developers | Quartz - http://qz.com/258066...
You are bad at giving technical interviews. Yes, you. You're looking for the wrong skills, hiring the wrong people, and actively screwing yourself and your company. Without changing anything about your applicant pool, you can hire different people and your company will do better and you will enjoy your job more. I realize these are... - Peter Murray

The FBI is close to fully activating the Next Generation Identification (NGI) system, a state-of-the-art digital platform of biometric and other types of identity information. The system, which is incrementally replacing the Bureau’s Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System, will better serve the agency’s most prolific customers—law enforcement agencies checking criminal histories and fingerprints, veterans, government employees, and the organization’s own Laboratory, the FBI said. - Peter Murray
