If you start Googling "What would Bree do?", after typing "What would Bree ", Google still tries to auto-complete this as "what would bree van de kamp do?". => There's an article waiting to be written about "data driven algorithms, latency and temporal relevance".

“As bad as anything else”. 2015 04 21. Lessons Learned while Working on Large-Scale Server Software. Of all the lessons I've learned, there is one that can summarize them all in 3 simple words: everything is terrible. This text is an attempt to recount some of the hard-earned lessons I have ...

My Newtonian physics is rusty. Why does the whole garbage can rise in the air?

How does Google manage the jobs across it many computers? The system is called Borg and this paper partially opens the veil.

They were implemented in C++. At the time the development of these started (11 years ago), Java was not yet an Google-approved internal language and Go didn't exist.

Borg itself won't be used outside Google. But I've heard enough people complain about the performance hit from using virtual machines, that I expect other container systems (e.g. Docker and Kubernetes) to get more and more use in Cloud data centers.

When we see science fiction stories set during the Victorian and Edwardian eras, the inventor Nikola Tesla tends to show up an awful lot. But the Victorian era and the early 20th century are filled with inventors who led fascinating lives, lives that just don’t tend to turn up in fiction.

Insights from his ex-wife:
For one thing, you shouldn't be wasting your time reading articles like this.

Ada Lovelace's superheroine origin story. Very silly, semi-accurate, nicely done!
This brief biographical sketch was done for Ada Lovelace Day, organized by my good buddy Suw Charman. I think I in was a pub at the time. This comic is now available as a free iPad app, complete wi...

Great collection of activists. I wish them success, but I still don't see how reform will take place. All 3 branches of government are happy with the status quo
By Simon Davies & Annie Machon Over the coming few days we will be joining many of our renowned colleagues across the world to launch the long-awaited Code Red security accountability project. The Code Red initiative was created in response to mounting concerns that government surveillance and intrusion has escalated – despite the Snowden national …

We stayed here with the whole family for several nights. The staff was extremely helpful with all sorts of extra needs: storage of extra suitcases, xeroxing, printing, translation and general advice. The breakfast buffet had an very broad range of food, that was well presented and very satisfying. The sunrise view during breakfast was beautiful. The children really enjoyed playing with the outdoor kinetic ball sculpture. We didn't try the bowling alley, because it seemed a little expensive. We were too busy to try out the gym. The speed of the free wired and wireless internet was fine, and we didn't feel the need to pay for the higher bandwidth tiers.

Decent Happy Hour at the Bar. I liked my crab cake and the sauces it came with. My fish taco was fine, but less interesting. The calamari was nothing special. My wife's margarita was weak. The happy hour beer selection is very limited and uninteresting. We liked our view. They gave the kids free refills on their drinks.

Equipped the whole family for our biking needs. Off-season, Martin gave us a great rate on bikes for the whole family for 4 days ... and then threw in another day for free. They had a good range of sizes for everyone, but they might run out at busier times of the year. Beach cruisers are my least-favorite type of bike, but, since I was using the bike for beach cruising and chaperoning the kids around, it was totally adequate for the job -- and the basket on front was extremely useful.

Kids voted thumbs down on the cheese pizza - I think because of the crust? But on the vegi pizza, the toppings were good enough to make the pizza well worth a return visit.
