An honest test of React's performance claims. I really like React, it's the most revolutionary JavaScript framework in ages, but it's overhyped to the point of zealotry.

In particular, the often repeated claim that by bypassing DOM mutation as much as possible, your web app is always going to be faster, is disproved here. In fact, for a very common scenario (infinite scrolling), the exact opposite seems to be true.

But as the OP says: "Always, always, always test. For your app React may well be an epic win."
React is very popular at the moment, and I can see why: its developer ergonomics are very attractive. JSX and vDOM are really nice to work with, and it certainly enables composability. But, being the performance-minded person that I am, I wanted to test the claims that it's default-fast.

Now you can generate your own dreamy neural net image

#deepdream  

For those of you who liked the post I shared a couple of weeks ago about the images generated by neural nets (old post: https://plus.google.com/+JeffDean/posts/jVBUgDxhbRd), I'm happy to announce that Alexander Mordvintsev, +Christopher Olah , and Mike Tyka have put together an open-source iPython notebook containing the code that generates these images, and you can play around with it on your own images.  (Note: this notebook depends on a few other packages, so you have to have enough persistence to install numpy and caffe to get this to work).  The iPython notebook is at https://github.com/google/deepdream, but see the blog post linked to by this post for details.

The blog post asks that people tag images they generate and share with #deepdream , so I suspect you can keep looking at that tag to see all kinds of weird and wonderful images.

Have fun, everyone!

What will humans be uniquely suited to do when robots are prevalent? I was wondering when Kurzweil would speak directly on the subject of technological unemployment. I've read his books so I figured he would say something along the lines of "humans will merge with machines." Indeed he does; full interview in the video if you want to hear his exact words. He acknowledges that jobs are destroyed on the low end of the skill ladder but says they are created on the high end of the skill ladder, that "the skill ladder moves up." "We need to make people more skilled." He says there are two ways: one is education, and we are on our way to providing a kindergarten through graduate school education online with very high quality. The other is brain enhancement, which we are all doing now by having smartphones in close proximity. Computers are always becoming more intimate and will go inside our bodies. "Ultimately that is the way we're going to make people smarter." "Neocortex and the cloud."

He also says People will need less monetary resources, by which he means everything will be cheaper.

He talks about how he had a discussion about this with Larry Page where Page was saying, why have jobs? Why not everybody just work less? Kurzweil takes the point of view that because jobs of the future will require more and more creativity, more people will enjoy them as "creative endeavors" and more people will "pursue their passion."

Everyone calm down. The Facebook logo redesign is actually very good.

You're just not used to it yet. Give it time.

Check out this addictive strategy game made by a colleague in his spare time. I am positively impressed.
 
Hello, crew of interesting Google+ people! I've been working on this game, 10 Minute Barbarian, with help friends and family. (Thanks!) It's strategy gaming in a hurry.

If you're curious, you can play the demo in your browser.

Demo: http://studiopuffer.appspot.com/demo/10mb.html
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAXItD3YPhA
Greenlight: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=459593553

It's about exploring, building an army, and attacking castle walls while dragons rain fire down upon you, all in about ten minutes. Top feedback is that it takes longer than 10 minutes if you get into it, which is hard to refute.

I'm going for Steam, so if you like the demo, feel free to vote up. That'd be totally nifty.

Milý #lazyweb -e, existuje něco jako fiverr.com v Česku? Potřeboval bych obstarat pár starších projektů (přičemž velká část práce je sice důležitá, ale nijak zvlášť náročná) a rád bych nechal někomu vydělat.

Bojím se, že česká byrokracie vůbec nic podobného neumožňuje, ale rád se nechám překvapit. Rád bych se vyhnul podepisování papírových smluv, obíhání úřadů, registrování s.r.o., kupování registračních pokladen, apod., abych někomu mohl dát pár stovek za výpomoc s projektem...

No more EU roaming charges!!!

Finally, travelling across borders in the European Union will be the same as travelling across borders in the United States...no longer paying $50 per YouTube clip because you took a 1 hour train ride.

Roaming charges end in June 2017. Until then, there's Three.

#Protip How to use Google Play Listing A/B Experiment to increase your app download by 20%. approx. 3-5 min of work

Vysledek viz screenshot.

Jak jsem to delal:

V Google Play dev console nasel jsem svou apku. Vytvoril jsem novy experiment, ktery se lisi od soucasneho stavu jenom v app short description. Proc short description? Protoze muze mit max 80 znaku. Zmena 80 znaku (nebo mene) vyzaduje minimalni praci. Myslim, ze by tahle technika mohla fungovat i pro long description nebo graphics, ale neoveril jsem. Porovnejte dve verze short description:

Current version
  Autosync Android with Dropbox. Fast, reliable, battery efficient.

Experiment (New short desc)
  Autosync Android with Dropbox. Fast, reliable, battery efficient.

(Schvalne, kdo najde tu mezeru s jinym Unicode pointem?)

Vybral jsem si defaultni split 50/50. Cekal jsem par dni na data a ted mam overeno, ze "new" short description je o 20% lepsi.  Ted mi zbyva uz jenom jeden klik na "Apply winner".

WIN

Jo. Malem jsem zapomnel. Jestli jste prectli az sem, nezapomente zkusit tu apku: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ttxapps.dropsync. Je zcela zdarma. Je urceno pro Dropbox. Mam podobne sync apps i pro jine cloud storage: Google Drive, OneDrive, Box. Viz https://metactrl.com/
