How an Ex-Cop Rigged McDonald’s Monopoly Game and Stole Millions

From the Daily Beast:

This was the man entrusted with creating a theft-proof system for one of America’s largest corporations. It was a thrill to protect the Monopoly promotion, and only a natural part of his job to consider the system’s fallibilities. But soon the temptation to steal had become irresistible.

This story is bananas.


Atlassian + Slack

From Slack:

Today Slack and Atlassian are taking even bigger steps to drive fundamental improvements to the experiences of hundreds of thousands of teams and millions of people around the world who use our products together every day. This partnership is about a joint vision of simplifying and automating the huge amount of effort that teams everywhere expend to stay aligned, coordinated, and productive.

I’m so happy about this. We switched from Slack to Hipchat about a year ago since we also use Jira and I’ve missed Slack ever since. After this news, we’ve already started the process of moving back to Slack. Woot.
