Four short links: 1 July 2010
  1. Conflict Minerals and Blood Tech (Joey Devilla) -- electronic components have a human and environmental cost. I remember Saul Griffith asking me, "do you want to kill gorillas or dolphins?" for one component. Now we can add child militias and horrific rape to the list. (via Simon Willison)
  2. Meteor -- an open source HTTP server that serves streaming data feeds (for apps that need Comet-style persistent connections). (via gianouts on Delicious)

Webinar today – Scaling Web Services with MySQL Cluster, Part 1: An Alternative to MySQL Server & memcached

The replay of this webinar is now available from http://www.mysql.com/news-and-events/on-demand-webinars/display-od-545.html

MySQL and memcached has become, and will remain, the foundation for many dynamic web services with proven deployments in some of the largest and most prolific names on the web. There are classes of web services however that are update-intensive, demanding real-time responsiveness and continuous availability. In these cases, MySQL Cluster provides the familiarity and ease-of-use of the regular MySQL Server, while delivering significantly higher levels of write performance with less complexity, lower latency and 99.999% availability. This webinar will discuss the use-cases for both approaches, and provide an insight into how MySQL Cluster is enabling users to scale their update-intensive web services.

  1. Tsung -- GPLed multi-protocol (HTTP, PostgreSQL, MySQL, WebDAV, SOAP, XMPP) load tester written in Erlang.
  2. Myth of China's Manufacturing Prowess -- The latest data shows [...] that the United States is still the largest manufacturer in the world. In 2008, U.S. manufacturing output was $1.8 trillion, compared to $1.4 trillion in China (UN data. China’s data do not separate manufacturing from mining and utilities. So the actual Chinese manufacturing number should be much smaller). Also contains pointers to an interesting discussion of lack of opportunities for college grads in China.
  3. OpenSSO and the Value of Open Source -- …

Static charts vs. interactive charts

I’m having my usual fun with charts. Working on mycheckpoint, I’ve generated monitoring charts using the Google Chars API. But I’ve also had chance to experiment and deploy interactive charts, JavaScript based. In particular, I used and tweaked dygraphs.

I’d like to note some differences in using charts of both kinds. And I think it makes a very big difference.

Static charts

I’ll call any image-based chart by “static chart”. It’s just a static image. Example of such charts are those generated by Google Image Charts (they now also have new, interactive charts), or RRDtool. Show below is an example of a static chart; in …

HipHop for PHP is not for you 60% of the time, everytime.



My apologies to Ron Burgundy for the title of the post, but I’m just a fan of the wisest man to ever live.

As Marco and Illia and countless others have said, unless you don’t work with PHP or were in a coma, Facebook released HipHop for PHP , it’s open source, it’s awesome, it makes you go fast. It’s not for you. You, being the average PHP developer, systems administrator, hacker. …

Happy 2010 - it's review time

I was happily snowboarding and skiing (the latter for the first time in two decades) last week, so here comes the year-end review a week late. Last year, I harped on Facebook's closed nature, and over the the year they've tried to open more of the users' data over to the Internet. Still, there are no decent APIs for a user to pull out everything they've posted to Facebook to have their own copy, though. That doesn't seem to stop them from dominating the Internet for the time being, though, so good for them.

I'm trying to think of what would have surprised me over the year, but given I failed to make many accurate predictions myself, things just seemed to happen in pretty natural direction. …
