The Barclaycard Mercury Awards are the only music awards I really care about, and I’m very excited to see the list of ‘possible’ nominations according to NME.com
My personal favorites:
Jungle – By Jungle
Solid smooth electronic music. Some trip hop elements that are pretty fun.
Wild Beats – Present Tense
Really great album, though their previous album ‘Smother’ is one of my all time favorite albums, but this is still a really good album.
Royal Blood – Royal Blood
Holy cow, a Rock album that just rocks. This album has become a great album to work out to, and it reminds me of Muse mixed with Rage Against The Machine with a slight Jack White vibe.
East India Youth – Total Strife Forever
Really interesting classical-electronic style music. Not easy listening but if you are into more ambient style music, you may like this one.

I am sad to hear about the death of Joan Rivers. She always said she wanted her to death to be celebrated with comedy. I found The Roast of Joan Rivers, and thought it was perfect.
I haven’t been into a pure hard-rock album in a while, but I have been listening to this album a lot.
Great article by Luca!

1st Rule: You don’t talk about A/B Testing.
Don’t tell your visitors they are part of an A/B test. It would contaminate the test and would make them feel awkward. Try to hide the test as much as you can. If you have redirects or URL parameters showing up, make them not too obvious to the visitors.
2nd Rule: You DO NOT talk about A/B Testing.
Stop talking and start testing. Way too much time is spent discussing what to test and how to test and not enough time is actually spent testing stuff. Start small and iterate. Every minute without testing is a lost opportunity to learn something.
3rd Rule: If someone says “stop” or goes limp, taps out the test is over.
If you are testing on a large environment and someone reports an issue somehow related to your test, you stop it immediately. You fix the problem…
