It takes real skill to write up challenging technical problems like this. +Chris Saint-Amant does an excellent job.
We've been busy building our next-generation Netflix.com web application using Node.js. You can learn more about our approach from the presentation we delivered at NodeConf.eu a few months ago. Today, I want to share some recent learnings from performance tuning this new application stack.

A handy guide, but time and time again, understanding a problem is often more expensive than just throwing more resource at it.

Is compute capacity too cheap?

I wasn't satisfied with the time-lapse video that I made in Shanghai on the iPhone so decided to process a new set of images using imagemagick/ffmpeg. I'm much happier with the results.

I've only just seen The Internet's Own Boy. It is a powerful story that really has me wondering just how much we take society (and the organisations that uphold it) for granted. Technology as an enabler for change is a phrase we hear all to often, with Aaron, he meant it.

If Anqor can get away with what appears to be a software SIM, why do I still need to switch SIMs every time I travel? #wantit

Some of the workings behind 11 illustrated panels which sit in the plant-beds of The Healing Giant at Kew Gardens' Plantasia festival. Lying at the bottom of the Pagoda, the Healing Giant is a 20m tall human-shaped plant bed. It showcases the effects of plants on different parts of the human body.
