This video is a good indication of what it's like to race the final kilometers of a cycling race. It's very much push & shove trying to stay on the right wheel & be in the right position. Getting your team to the front is tough & staying there is even harder.

This is one of my favourite ted talks from 2014 - It's great seeing the dynamics of Bill & Melinda Gates working together & building an incredible foundation. & with the support of buffett & many others.
In 1993, Bill and Melinda Gates took a walk on the beach and made a big decision: to give their Microsoft wealth back to society. In conversation with Chris Anderson, the couple talks about their work at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, as well as their marriage, their children, their failures and the satisfaction of giving most of their money away.

Products such as Windows have been very useful & thats why people pay for them - not necessarily better off without them existing

firebase to GCP - good stuff.
 
Today we extend a warm welcome to Firebase, who is joining the Google Cloud Platform team. Firebase makes it very easy for developers to build mobile and web apps that store and sync data in realtime.

Mobile is one of the fastest-growing categories of app development, but it’s also still too hard for most developers. With Firebase, developers are able to easily sync data across web and mobile apps without having to manage connections or write complex sync logic. Firebase makes it easy to build applications that work offline and has full-featured libraries for all major web and mobile platforms, including Android and iOS.

By combining Firebase with Google Cloud Platform, we’ll be able to build the best end-to-end platform for mobile application development. If you’re already a Firebase developer, you’ll start seeing improvements right away and if you’re a Google Cloud Platform customer, you’ll find it even easier to create great mobile and web apps. The entire Firebase team is joining Google and, under the leadership of Firebase co-founders James Tamplin and Andrew Lee, will be working hard to bring you great new features. Not only will the products you already love continue to get better, but you’ll also gain access to the full power of Google Cloud Platform.

At Google Cloud Platform Live on November 4, we’ll be demonstrating new Firebase features and integrations with Cloud Platform. You can join us there in person or you can register to stream online for free: cloud.google.com/LIVE.

We can’t wait to see what applications you build! Visit www.firebase.com to learn more.

Workout of the Day: Bruce Lee Abs / Workout
permalink: 

Bruce Lee perfected his abs through an intensive, daily routine that worked them to the max. He believed that a strong set of abdominal muscles changed all the power the body could output in every movement and it appears, he was right. 

Instructions: Repeat each move 20, 30, 40 or (wow!) 90 reps depending on your fitness level with no rest in between until the set is done, rest up to 2 minutes and repeat the whole set again 3, 5 or 7 times.

What it works: upper abs, lateral abs, lower abs, core, quads.

Tips: Bruce Lee was renowned for his explosive martial arts moves. Aim, here, to do every exercise as fast as you can, upping your personal intensity level, exhaling fast and hard at the point of maximum muscle tension.

Facebooks new datacenter design? These systems are starting to resemble biological phenomenon as they get more sophisticated and resilient to failure.. e.g. self healing, automated growth etc.

I agree Rob, and I like the article too. Other industries like civil engineering look abroad & offer relocation packages, but I don't know how frequently it happens in software. Maybe we should start looking at it..
