    Wired A New Digital Currency Whose Value is Based on Your Reputation

But J. Chris Anderson wants to do something even more radical.

    Anderson is starting a new digital currency project tentatively dubbed Document Coin. It’s a bit of an odd duck, but it’s intriguing, and Anderson is worth listening to.

    Enterprise Tech InkaBinka Moves From Cloud To MoonShoot For Launch

    The premise behind a new startup called InkaBinka, which launched this month and which is only a year old, is that none of us have the time to keep up with what is going on in the world. Or more precisely, we do not have time to wade through thousands of words in multiple stories to distill the salient facts of a piece of news in business, politics, technology, or entertainment.

    And to that end, InkaBinka has come up with a different kind of news aggregation service that finds those salient facts from combing through multiple news sources and presents it simply in four bullet points with imagery that its co-founders say helps the human brain retain that data better than sitting through what InkaBinka disparagingly calls “the long read.”

    Application Development Trends Couchbase NoSQL Database goes Mobile
    NoSQL database vendor Couchbase Inc. is seeking to let developers build always-available, data-driven apps for mobile users wherever they are, even when they don't have connectivity to the cloud. The Couchbase Mobile suite was released yesterday, featuring three components, including an embedded, small-footprint, JSON-based NoSQL database called Couchbase Lite. The new mobile database is a smaller version of the company's cloud-hosted Couchbase Server database, also part of the suite. Now developers can build apps that store data in a device's embedded database so they work even when a user is offline. When connectivity to the server is restored, Couchbase Sync Gateway -- the third component -- will synchronize the data with Couchbase Server.
