+ - The Entire Web Gets A Guide With Live Matrix ->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes: Live Matrix launched at Tech Crunch Disrupt today. Live Matrix is the guide to the Scheduled Web and is currently indexing more than 80,000 events a week. The Live Matrix algorithm then looks over these events for things such as number of people who are concurrently watching to determine the popular ones. This, in turn, gives each event a rating, similar to a Nielsen rating for television.

+ - Handling Interviews after being a Fall Guy

Cary Tennis, who writes the column, admits he may not be the best person for this sort of question. So I thought I'd ask Slashdotters what they thought about this. Software developers are sometimes able to get away blaming the business requirements/analysis process, but anyone with any experience in this business probably has had nightmares about being the fall guy and may even have a strategy or two up their sleeve. How would deal with being in such a crummy position?"
