Happy SysAdmin day guys! Keep those servers humming!
 
SysAdmins keep our workplaces humming. They solve problems most of us don’t know exist in ways that we’ll never understand.

This week we’re taking over our page with stories and tips that may only make sense if you're a SysAdmin. We also want to hear from you—about the SysAdmin who saved the day in your office, and your burning questions for our CIO,  +Ben Fried.

To top it off, we’re hosting a live Q&A with some of our Google Apps Admins on Friday, so we can get our hands dirty with you in real-time.

Join us right here, all week long. #SysAdminDay

Mongo Wins

Been working with MongoDb for about a year now. Compared to other database technologies, it is extremely productive, especially when used with the entire JS framework. 

Been also working with Google Datastore and although it might be an efficient and scalable database, development on it sucks big time. It is extremely unproductive and restrictive.

BigQuery is great! But you still need the datastore, you need to replicate from the datastore to bigquery. Adds complexity.

Java datastore is horrible. ndb library in python is the best AFAIK (I work on a python app). But adding in the Search API makes it actually possible to find things without using the incredibly obtuse indexing system of the datastore.

Archeologists have dug up a 2000 year old female human skeleton with a cone shaped head. The shape comes from a very strange practice of using ropes on children's heads on order to shape them.

The alien enthusiasts are excited because they think this is an alien (deaf to the rope evidence). My question is why did they do this and what inspired them?
 
Archeologists are puzzled over the ancient remains of a woman discovered on a site near Chelyabinsk, a Russian city to the east of the Ural Mountains. The approximately 2,000 year old skeleton boasts an oddly shaped skull.

If the boss lacks sense of humour, the intern will be better off elsewhere anyway. ;-)

Interesting read on a very relevant question about mass surveillance.

Governments around the world are all trying to tap into our Internet activities, most of the time with the excuse of national security. Sure, the secret services need to be able to do their job and keep us safe, but are the tactics of governments who spy on their own people working?
We, as people, have a set of fundamental human rights. One of those rights is the right to privacy in our homes and in our countries. Mass surveillance is the surveillance of an entire or large fraction of a population. On on...

I can't imagine being the guy who does the surveillance is more exciting than watching traffic go by. We used to have surveillance on the worst streets in Honolulu. After 6 months no one was watching the monitors because no one wanted to, and the ones that did fell asleep.

Hi-res Pluto pics coming soon...

"The image above is from July 11, and on Tuesday morning we can expect an even clearer color photo. On July 15, we'll see the first images from the flyby -- so highly resolved that, were a comparable photo taken of the Earth, you'd be able to make out the lakes in New York's Central Park."
The dwarf planet and its largest moon are really something else.
