Two days into 2012 my reflections on the best of 2011 are agressively short.
1. Roku - The Roku player continues to deliver and undoubtedly folks will develop "channels" (tweaking a website for optimal viewing really) for this specific platform.
2. XyliBox - @Xylit0l (Steven) does a phenomenal job updating this threat intelligence blog with timely and useful information. I read a lot of blogs and this one consistently delivered in 2011. Check it out: http://xylibox.blogspot.com/
3. Dwolla - @Dwolla (dwolla.com) appears to have innovated a clean and practical alternative to the current merchant/credit card purchase relationship. I’m truly rooting for these guys in 2012 and beyond. Savvy merchants should sign up and encourage their customers to do the same.
