Yes, we have a feature called "Web-Wide Trends" that tracks how articles are doing across the publisher network. We can't share fine-grained traffic statistics on a per-article basis among publishers because this would be a violation of their privacy. So instead we aggregate up high-level trends like which topics are trending (Benghazi vs. Beirut, to take recent examples). We have some new functionality coming that will address your second point very directly -- producing content that's intrinsically shareable.

Great talk. First 30 minutes actually serve as a good introduction to Docker overall. The last 10 focus on the specifics of how Ferry uses Docker and Python for big data stacks like Hadoop and Cassandra.

Interesting to watch the evolution of the microprocessor ecosystem; time sharing giving away to protected memory, to the hyper visor and now one more division with control groups.  My only complaint with Docker/cgroups is that the extra layer of abstraction makes it easier for IaaS providers to overbook actual hardware and increase risk ( last year I only had one EC2 instance die, with a docker IaaS I lost 30% of my infrastructure when the host system had a problem ).   Of course if you own the hardware or at least manage a high resource EC2 instance the risk is at least accountable.

Fascinating. My old boss & colleague at Morgan Stanley, +Ben Fried (current CIO of Google) discusses one of the strategy's to Google's engineering productivity. Choice.

"... my mission, writ large, is to make this an incredibly productive organization. A way to do that is through a philosophy of choice. We allow users, within certain constraints, to choose the toolset with which they can be more productive. That produces the best overall environment."

Sounds familiar: this  is how startups operate, too.
