Using Docker to Keep Houses Warm: Highly Distributed Micro-Data centres
by Erik Feliksik, Director of the Cloud Orchestra, +Nerdalize

Nerdalize is a Dutch start-up that provides affordable and green computing power with an innovative approach. +Nerdalize help heat living rooms with CPUs, as high-performance computer hardware is fit into a beautiful design radiator. While home owners heat for free, a massive distributed compute infrastructure becomes available.

In this talk, Erik gives a detailed overview of how +Docker, +Rancher Labs and other tools in the ecosystem enable us to leverage such a highly distributed micro-data centre architecture. He discusses how their approach drastically eliminates data centre infrastructure costs, and how they aim to change the environmental impact of the compute industry.

Good show, +Financial Times web page developers.

"Moral Hazard: Showing you this page would only encourage you to want more pages."

"Speculative bubble: The page never actually existed and was fundamentally impossible, but everyone bought into it in a frenzy and it's all now ending in tears."

Kubernetes: Up and Running
Dive into the Future of Infrastructure
By Kelsey Hightower

❝ Legend has it that Google deploys over a billion application containers a week. How is that possible? The company decided to share the process through an open source project called Kubernetes, which replicates many of the features found in its internal system. This practical book will prepare you to take advantage of everything the Kubernetes platform has to offer.

Rather than an exact copy of its internal Borg system, Kubernetes is an upgrade based on lessons Google learned over the last decade. Kubernetes is also designed to integrate with the most robust container ecosystem: Docker. Developers and Ops practitioners can easily deploy a demo Kubernetes environment and kick the tires, but when it comes time to scale to hundreds of nodes, you’re going to need a reliable field guide: *Kubernetes: Up and Running*. ❞

I should add that this is still being written.

A Name With No Place

“Will any American or European country allow one of its citizens, a man, to have two wives? And will these countries give in to the demands of a community or people who want a separate set of laws for themselves based on their religion?” asks a Myanmar government official rhetorically. “No, they won’t,” he says emphatically. “Myanmar won’t either.”

Wherever Outlook goes, whether to erstwhile capital Yangon or new one Naypyidaw, and puts the question of the persecution of the Rohin­gya to the country’s ruling establishment, the response is on the same trajectory: “What’s being referred to as ‘persecution’ by the global community and international media is really our refusal to comply with an ethnic group’s unreasonable demand for preferential treatment.”

Prejudice against the Muslim overflows in Myanmar officialdom...

"The existence of alternative histories with black holes suggests this might be possible," Hawking said. "The hole would need to be large and if it was rotating it might have a passage to another universe. But you couldn't come back to our universe.

"So although I'm keen on space flight, I'm not going to try that."
Hawking Offers New "Solution" to Black Hole Mystery

In the image below, Nobel physics laureate Gerard 't Hooft, of Utrecht University, the Netherlands, confers with Stephen Hawking after the Cambridge professor presented his solution to the information loss paradox. Hawking is in Sweden for a weeklong conference on the information loss paradox, which is co-hosted by Nordita at KTH Royal Institute of Technology.

Black holes don't actually swallow and destroy physical information, according to an idea proposed by Stephen Hawking at the Hawking Radiation conference being held at KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
Instead, they store it in a two-dimensional hologram.
One of the most baffling questions facing a generation of physicists is what happens to the information about the physical state of things that are swallowed up by black holes? Is it destroyed, as our understanding of general relativity would predict? If so, that would violate the laws of quantum mechanics.

Yesterday, at the Hawking Radiation conference, Hawking presented his latest idea about how this paradox can be solved — that is, how information is preserved even if it's sucked into a black hole.

Read the full article>>

Hawking announced a paper that will be released in 30 days or so.

Let us wait...

As Sergey and I wrote in the original founders letter 11 years ago, “Google is not a conventional company. We do not intend to become one.” As part of that, we also said that you could expect us to make “smaller bets in areas that might seem very speculative or even strange when compared to our ...
