Here's what's new. With the Velocity Conference revving up, everyone 
has web operations and performance on the brain. If you're interested 
in "operations," you won't want to miss Mike Loukides latest Radar 
Report "What is DevOps?" Plus, O'Reilly School of Technology offers a 
brand new Android course, with a 15% discount good for a limited time. 
We've also got some great podcasts you'll enjoy checking out. And if 
you're going to Maker Faire NYC in September, the Call for Makers just 
opened, so make sure to submit your entry ASAP.
