Review: Here Comes Everybody by Clay Shirky
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Read the original article at Review: Here Comes Everybody by Clay Shirky

Clay Shirky tells a great story. Here Comes Everybody begins with a case of a lost phone in a taxi cab, and the extraordinary turn of events that led to the owner retrieving it. From photos posted online, to NYPD who were uninterested in following up, to taking it all online. Through that online publicity, the story got picked up by the NY Times and CNN, which put pressure on the police to track down the taxi.  It's a great example that illustrates the nuances, both good and bad, powerful and persistent that the Internet can unleash.

    I admit this is not closely related to my day-by-day activities, but I find the experiment interesting.

    MySQL is the most popular open source database, particularly in the Web. Both twitter and facebook are avid users of MySQL. MySQL has influenced plenty of projects, has contributed to the creation of a multiplicity of social networks and it's behind many intriguing entrepreneurial ideas. The question is: how influential are you?

    Fast Company started a project to measure how much we influence the online communities. Here is the description coming from their website.

    State of the Internet Operating System Part Two: Handicapping the Internet Platform Wars
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    This post is Part Two of my State of the Internet Operating System. If you haven't read Part One, you should do so before reading this piece.


    As I wrote last month, it is becoming increasingly clear that the internet is becoming not just a platform, but an operating system, an operating system that manages access by devices such as personal computers, phones, and other personal electronics to cloud subsystems ranging from computation, storage, and communications to location, identity, social graph, search, and payment. The question is whether a single company will put together a single, vertically-integrated platform that is sufficiently compelling to developers to enable the kind of lock-in we saw during the

    The rotating blades database benchmark
    +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    (and before you ask, yes “rotating blades” comes from “become a fan”)

    I’m forming the ideas here first and then we can go and implement it. Feedback is much appreciated.

    Two tables.

    Table one looks like this:

    CREATE TABLE fan_of (
    user_id BIGINT,
    item_id BIGINT,
    PRIMARY KEY (user_id, item_id),
    INDEX (item_id)
    );

    That is, two columns, both 64bit integers. The primary key covers both columns (a user cannot be a fan of something more than once) and can be used to look up all things the user is a fan of. There is also an index over item_id so that you can find out which users are a fan of an item.

    The second table looks like this:

    CREATE TABLE fan_count (
    item_id BIGINT PRIMARY KEY,
    fans BIGINT

    Alta Elsta & I just completed the DTrace Quick Start Guide: Observing Native and Web Applications in Production mini-book. If you need a hardcopy let me know but if you are like me and would love to save a few trees you can click on the picture below to download the pdf version.

    We talk about why DTrace is so different from any observation tools you may have seen. We cover basic DTrace concepts and some details on writing d-scripts. We also have a lot of sample scripts. Sections on using DTrace to observe MySQL and Drupal are included.

    The examples from the book have also been added to a wiki page for easier copy & paste.

    In the information age, everyone collaborates on this worldwide knowledge exchange channel that's called Internet. Computing devices are proliferating and all interactions are finding a common home: the net. It binds us in a way that was inconceivable only a few years ago. I can stay up to date on what my US or Japan colleagues are doing. I can read articles and thoughts written in unknown cities all around the globe.

    We are all on the web; MySQL (http://www.mysql.com/) is so popular because of the web I'll say. Whether you have a small niche blog or you are a famous writer in your field of expertise, you should care about analyzing your readers. This becomes more important if you are a company willing to publicize products

    OpenSolaris beats Linux on Memcached !
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Following on the heels of our memcached performance tests on SunFire X2270 ( Sun's Nehalem-based server) running OpenSolaris, we ran the same tests on the same server but this time on RHEL5. As mentioned in the post presenting the first memcached results, a 10GBE Intel Oplin card was used in order to achieve the high throughput rates possible with these servers. It turned out that using this card on linux involved a bit of work resulting in driver and kernel re-builds.

    • With the default ixgbe driver from the RedHat distribution (version 1.3.30-k2 on kernel 2.6.18)), the interface simply hung during the benchmark test.
    • This led to downloading the driver from the Intel site

    Employee +0 Vote Up -2Vote Down

    The first cut of a Java EE implementation of Olio is now checked into the repository. The file docs/java_setup.html gives instructions on how to build and setup this implementation. The implementation uses JSP, servlets, JPA for persistence, yahoo and Jmaki widgets for AJAX etc. The web application is located in webapp/java/trunk and the load driver, database and file loaders etc. are in workload/java/trunk.

    Check it out.
