Good morning world! We’re almost at Christmas and this is how Apple wants us to celebrate it (it’s cute, I promise; http://bit.ly/18Gg819). And here are this weekend’s reads:

The NSA-RSA fiasco fully explained – a tale of when biz cultures change; NSA paid co $10M to turn a blind eye (the ‘preferred’ encryption algorithm) and knowingly let the agency tap customers’ info (the ‘back door’ created via formula); RSA mission – to act in the interest of customers; the co used to lead fight against NSA (http://reut.rs/19j3TrQ);

Apple CEO Tim Cook speaks on gay rights and racism; “Now is the time to write these basic principles of human dignity into the book of law” (http://ti.me/18GfGjm);

My fav #hedgefund SAC Capital’s latest update – another exec convicted (Steinberg, 41); #Longform exposé on what’s been happening with the HF over the past few months (http://bloom.bg/1doCmC2);

Getting a headache from all this #BigData chatter? Here’s sort of an open letter; might have a point on the world being over-quantified and analyzed; some post utopian view here (http://pndo.ly/1kVF7h8);

Turns out Cards Against Humanity has a heart too; co donates proceeds to charity and other fun gifts; need rebranding soon? (http://wrd.cm/1bh1Gay)
