Why a startup just published all of its employees’ salaries for the world to see [Quartz]: “The move is part of Buffer’s more general strategy to ‘default to transparency’ — meaning making operations as transparent as possible.”

Trouble persisted during Baltimore speed camera tests, records show [Baltimore Sun]: “City officials had ordered Brekford Corp. of Anne Arundel County to stop issuing citations in April because of errors, and three months later they began putting the system through tests aimed at salvaging a five-year deal signed in 2012. But as summer turned to fall, an array of problems remained, according to weekly updates filed with the city and obtained by The Sun through a Public Information Act request.”

The top tech stories of 2013 [WBAL-TV]: “Another big story this year was cybersecurity, illustrated by a string of attacks by hackers against news organizations, major tech companies and retailers. The motivations behind the attacks varied — some like the recent Target breach — were financially motivated, while others were political statements or acts of espionage.”
