Surveillance State Repeal Act; finally, some people fighting back against the Fear Uncertainty and Doubt of the terrormongering, intruding, war-against-the-citizenry military/police monster-hybrid.

Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) and Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky), thank you. Godspeed to this restoration of our fundamental liberties. Get out of spying on the people Uncle Sam. You are no patriot when you stoop to such lowly cowardice.

I tend to think most protocols would probably do better if they borrowed existing transport protocols. This is an interesting project doing that with Apache #Kafka, but I'd be interested to see someone take up the goal of HTTP'izing Kafka in a the most performant manner they could.
http://blog.confluent.io/2015/03/25/a-comprehensive-open-source-rest-proxy-for-kafka/

Kafka's transfer of fixed size segments, by range, and it's overlaying coordination protocols to talk about these segments, seems particularly well suited to exposing a resourceful model.

Hi +Google Cultural Institute. I'm enjoying your wonderful website and the Chrome Extension that brings your awesome collection to every tab I open, but:

When will you be releasing an API for your collections? I'd like to make other ways to experience the cultural treasures you've gathered. Your website is a good port of the museum look and feel into an online experience, but why stop at such a singular, curated means of exploration? Why not let other people make their own way to experience these cultural treasures you've collected?
https://www.google.com/culturalinstitute/

Please open up the works you have under an API, such that people are free to create their own means of browsing these collections. If nothing else, a site index and a comprehensive use of linked-data to let the http://schema.org/CreativeWork 's you feature accurately, programmatically describe themselves would help a lot.

The past 5 years have seen a mountain of text produced on devops. It's about culture, it's about automation, it's about resilliency, it's about a dozen amazing things. You'll find software in the spotlight, a technological means to fill every pothole that keeping software going along smoothly.

What you wont find? Words on what text to write. You won't find discussions of what makes good ops planning. You'll hear of countless great tales of how HipMarker or whatever built this awesome new pipeline, but they'll never talk abut what planning that pipeline out looked like. You wont heard companies talk about the methodology they used to survey and research options that started them off on their projects. You won't heard stories of how wikis got built, or what support docs best onboarded newbies.

Now I'm looking for books.

Re-arranging deck chairs. No, the ships not sinking, and I don't expect any navigational hazards. But it feels like a weird act.

Yet it's paving out "core function." It's making more generally available systems, and putting them into a more general order than what the task at hand calls for.

Everything good about this one, long running project of mine is an act of dawdling, putzing around and dragging until some arbitrary satisfiability clicks in, registers.

This is quite normal. This is the comfort zone of experiment, of reaching a real creator state. Conversely so much actual creation is closer to assembly, driving the means to produce.

The expected backlash against Ars pulling Oakland's license plate datafile is expected to be worse than useless. The immediate reaction is going to be to enact privacy guards, but this only insures that it's big, coordinated entities doing the persistent, intrusive, and terrifying liberty and personhood ruining tracking of our every move. Right now it's the government holding this data, and we can wage a man versus government framed debate, but we're already far behind the curve if we entrench there. We are insufficient to being able to begin to debate how to deal with this in any scope that matters.

This is not the first time that Ars Technica has caused trouble.  The same organization also banned me when I sent repeated private messages protesting their deletion of a post to their discussion forum.

They had deleted the message because they had conflated it with spam by Sony, when it was a genuine post by a reader.  Then they didn't apologize.  And when I sent repeated protests, they simply banned my account.

Three months later, someone hacked into MetroMac, where I was a moderator on a discussion forum.  The first action that that cracker did was to delete my account there.  Then the cracker additionally deleted all posts by all other users, as well as their backups.  When I mentioned the Ars Technica incident to MetroMac, MetroMac refused to return my moderator privileges, and asked me not to discuss the issue in public in order to avoid a further backlash by the cracker.  MetroMac later went out of business.

Ars Technica is a repeated troublemaker and should go out of business.

Right now near everyone is still paying lip service to being tech-friends. You've always needed other techies to work with your tech. It's been inconceivable to grab a sword and go it alone. One company no longer sees the world as dangerous.
Apple is not anyone's friend.

Lucas123 writes Benchmark tests performed on the 2015 MacBook Pro revealed it does have twice the read/write performance as the mid-2014 model. Tests performed with the Blackmagic benchmark tool revealed read/write speeds of more than 1,300MBps/1,400MBps, respectively. So what's changed? The new Ma...

I really dig this. Rarely do we observe the cultural crossroads we lie at like this, and it's really interesting to hear spoken aloud. I'm not sure that you can out-market your base, but it's great statement.
Ember's frequent pairing with rails makes it seem like it's the only backend it works with. I'm not sure how 2 change the marketing approach

I'm not ready/still trying to express how #PushAPI is a good capability. It not having a transport protocol of known standing is meh, the lack of sympathetic action alongside http/2 (push) is tragic as fuck, and it not being able to transport resourceful content is absolutely madcap bonkers and quite seriously unexplainable except in terms of gradiated insanity, but this does open a capability. It's awful and wrong through and through, but Push API still, even as it sails a colossally deliberated ignorance, lacking the grace of anything webful, will be hugely deeply important, granting the app the one sole capability it has always envied: residency, an existence as something isolatedly enduring.
