The tiny, $29 gadget can mix two audio sources with a simple fader, allowing friends to share the acoustic landscape and mix in effects in realtime.

What do Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google all have in common? Somewhere in their framework, they all use MySQL, that most versatile (and free!) of database management systems. And they’re not alone. If your company or the one you’d like to work for wrangles data (and who doesn’t?), they’re going to need someone with a […]
