I'm currently working on setting up the analytics infrastructure at work. This is definitely going in!

Visualization of Server Traffic is Like the Coolest Game of Pong

I have to say ... This is pretty mesmerizing. 

Each little "ball" is a request to the server

On the left: the IP numbers from the users connecting around the world

To the right: The url's being served up

In the center: The "static calls being serviced by our front end

The brightness represents the speed with which the code written by our awesome developers delivers data (aided of course the great hardware)

Had any of the balls gone past to the right, that would have been a serve we couldn't return. Try that, Federer!

Why the government is being stupid.  He didn't even address the political issues.  If the US govt is allowed to have a backdoor, then similarly, India, Pakistan, Yemen, Russia, China and so on would want in the game as well.

That is just stupid on so many levels, and this is why the government wants it.  Dumbness.

Can you successfully answer all the questions in our climate change-themed quiz?
This year's day of environmental action and awareness, coming just months before a landmark UN climate summit, is marked by a Google Doodle

Heh.  I'd have started with simpler advice, such as washing his feet and changing his socks every day or so...  ;>

Pam Ronald and the case for engineering food on the TED stage in 2015. "GMO is a scientifically meaningless term.."
Pamela Ronald studies the genes that make plants more resistant to disease and stress. In an eye-opening talk, she describes her decade-long quest to help create a variety of rice that can survive prolonged flooding. She shows how the genetic improvement of seeds saved the Hawaiian papaya crop in the 1950s — and makes the case that it may simply be the most effective way to enhance food security for our planet’s growing population.

The Internet allows journalists and writers to communicate critical information freely around the world. Yet in many countries, this right to share videos, blogs and other news online is threatened by laws that censor and, in some cases, criminalize free speech. On World Press Freedom Day, Google and UNESCO join forces in calling for an Internet that respects human rights, including and especially the right to free expression. Check out UNESCO’s knowledge tools to help you defend your right to #keepspeechfree: http://goo.gl/sKuQsr

THIS!
This morning, I came across yet another one of those articles trying to tell us how scary it is that teenagers have smartphones. They should leave their phones at home, it said, and instead of being lonely, they should start to socialize with their friends.

Fucking idiots.
Update: It seems that TRAI's website has been hit by a denial of service attack (DoS) and is currently down. A twitter handle by hacker collective Anonymous seems to have taken credit for the same. This is going to get messy. "Host is down" all over my terminal. Thank you! Boom Boom

I think TRAI wants to harass or punish those who signed the net neutrality petition. If I get increase in spam from now on, they will be responsible. What does Information Technology Act say on such acts breaching privacy?
