Experimenting using Kafka and Clojure
Introduction. Kafka is a platform for handling real-time data feeds. In some ways it is like a database that exposes semantics of a messaging system. The Kafka documentation provides an excellent overview which I have provided an extract from: Kafka is a distributed, partitioned, ...

Encrypt and lock your phone with a passphrase. Swipe, fingerprint or face unlock are not sufficient.
Passphrase is annoying the first few days but you will quickly develop muscle memory and not even think anything of the inconvenience when unlocking. 
Regardless of what you’re protesting, if you head out to exercise your First Amendment rights, you will probably have a cellphone with you. You might be planning to take photos/videos with it or use it to contact people. But you might also have it just because you always have it....

Google StreetView shows Detroit being reclaimed by nature over time.

All of the Clojure/conj 2011 videos are now available for free at blip.tv/clojure, thanks to the considerable generosity of the speakers and the conference organizers.

All conferences should do this. We've done it for the past several years with Google I/O, (even live-streaming the sessions whenever we can), and it does wonders for both expanding the global reach and extending the longevity of these conferences, and it makes it possible for everyone to attend, regardless of whether they have a company footing the travel bill or can get tickets fast enough.

Just one more reason to love the Clojure community. Great work as always. Via Hacker News.

I've been experimenting with CoreOS and wrote up a hello world type of guide for getting started.

Fascinating technology. I'm not sure if CoreOS itself will catch on or not, but I suspect a lot of the fundamental ideas behind it will become increasingly common in the data center.
Introduction. In the previous post we created a Clojure web service and ran it in a Docker container. Here we will deploy that container on a 3 node CoreOS cluster running in Vagrant on a local development machine. CoreOS. CoreOS is a minimal version of Linux meant for large scale server ...

Bonsai Tree Houses by Takanori Aiba
For nearly a decade since the late 1970s artist Takanori Aiba worked as a maze illustrator for Japanese fashion magazine POPYE. The following decade he worked as an architect and finally in 2003 decided to merge the two crafts—the design of physical space and the drawing of labyrinths—into these incredibly detailed tiny worlds. Using craft paper, plastic, plaster, acrylic resin, paint and other materials Aiba constructs sprawling miniature communities that wrap around bonsai trees, lighthouses, and amongst the cliffs of nearly vertical islands.
