How far I can get from my house, in 20 minutes, on public transportation. Nicely done. (via swissmiss)

Sci-Fi Hi-Fi — Twitter, Instagram, and the Journalistic Impulse

2011-08-01T00:51:33Z

“I’ve never been one to keep a journal (much to my chagrin as an inveterate collector of fancy stationery), but, silly as it may sound, Twitter made me feel like a field correspondent—our man on the Rio Grande—and thus encouraged me to think like a journalist.” – Buzz.

Facebook Engineering: Typeahead Search Tech Talks

2010-09-26T12:07:50Z

I’ve referred to this video a few times recently, thought I should probably link it from somewhere. Great talk on developing the Facebook search box, with it’s strong blend of navigational insight and personalization. Bonus points for “world’s tiniest bloom filter.” The memory consumption-cache bandwidth-compute triangle is a useful construct.

Paul Graham’s “What Happened to Yahoo” is spot on

Though I think we got close to changing it in the early days after the Flickr/Upcoming/Delicious acquisitions. See also Success hides problems

Broad Cove

Jasmine posted some photos of Broad Cove from our recent road trip.

Tom Taylor: you’ve either shipped or you haven’t

2010-07-17T20:27:07Z

“You’ve either poured weeks, months or even years of your life into bringing a product or a service into the world, or you haven’t. If you have, you’ll know what I’m talking about. You’ll have flicked a switched, cap deploy‘d, or flipped your closed sign to open, and just waited – holding your breath for […]

random($foo): The Future of Leonard’s Computing

2010-07-03T17:37:25Z

“ARM-based smarphones stuffed into a netbooks form factor. They are fanless, have 10? screens, full-size keyboards and hover just under 2 lbs (800-900g) in weight. More importantly, they have ridiculous battery life (8-12hrs actual), days of standby, and like smartphones have 3G, GPS, quick wakeup and active-network standby”

Crabgrass: software libre for social organizing

2010-05-17T12:33:05Z

For folks interested in Diaspora, you should check out Crabgrass, developed by the Riseup tech collective to provide secure, powerful tools for social organizing its already used by a wide range of activists, the UN, and even the CIA (rumor has it).

Liminal Existence: Facebook Is My New Boatcar

2010-05-17T12:29:57Z

The only problem with Blaine’s argument is boat cars are awesome as anyone who has ever lived in Boston can tell you.

Good set of questions for anyone starting to build a distributed social network territory, and surprisingly good answers from join diaspora.

oplogutils – Utilities for inspecting and manipulating the MongoDB oplog

2010-05-17T11:30:30Z

These are the sort of tools that need to emerge before you can use a platform reliably. It isn’t about how cool the tech is, it’s about what do you do when it all goes wrong.

Simon Willison: Comprehensive notes from my three hour Redis tutorial

2010-04-25T23:33:30Z

Good notes. Been having fun playing with Redis a bit this week in the tiny margins of the day as the backend for a very volatile queue system, with relatively low durability requirements, but a iron clad need for operations to stay O(1) if queues fall behind.

Code Kata: oldie, but goodie.

2010-04-25T20:58:43Z

Back in 2007 the Pragmatic Programmers posted a series of code kata in the style of Are you one of the 10%. Probably worth re-visiting if you’ve never done them.

SnapGroups: Mark Fletcher’s Lightweight Discussion

2010-03-09T01:35:11Z

I’m a big fan of lightweight, ridiculously easy group forming, and of Mark Fletcher’s work, so I’m excited about SnapGroups. More interesting to me though is to see he chose to use Mongo, as Mark handrolled a custom datastore to Bloglines. Validates some of my cautious optimism for Mongo delivering on some of its promise.

Wikimedia has a users RPE of 30mil

2010-02-17T00:44:58Z

“Wikimedia Foundation currently employs 14 technical people (not all of whom are developers). At 400 million readers/month (as of February 2010), that’s about 1 developer per 30 million users. Accounting for open source developers probably doesn’t change that ratio by an order of magnitude.” (not exactly apples to apples, but still interesting)
