A number of useful tips on optimizing time and energy.
Nice to see continued innovation on Bootstrap! It also feels like it might not look so templated across different uses of the library.
Handy tool to check the meta headers on a website and will also give you a template to add for what you might want.
What a cool idea from Nintendo and an innovative way to use a small, portable game device!
A home-built Raspberry Pi Kubernetes cluster for $400 that you can run at home with very little power consumption and no noise. Awesome! I kind of want to build one of these even though I have no idea what I would use it for! 👏
Enjoy watching the 18 seconds miracle touchdown from the Minnesota Vikings! 🏈
I love what Simon Willison is doing here with Datasettes. He's focusing on making it super simple to take any file in a CSV format and make it available on the Internet in a public JSON API. He's now made a publisher so you can put data out there with no technical background at all! Very nice! 👏 This should be a great thing for some of the open data initiatives out there.
This is a very thorough write-up of this persons introduction to Micro.blog! This is where I host my micro blog.
Awesome to see my feed reader of choice, Feedbin, supporting posting to Micro.blog natively! 👏
🤔 Interesting, Kubernetes + Workflows. A lot of this is operations example like deploying and continuous integration, but there is a data processing one as well.
Very good writeup comparing current CloudFoundry and Kubernetes. I've been trying to understand this differentiation better, and even asked some Pivotal people this exact question, but the answers were not as clear as the ones in this article.
Compelling article by Bruce Schneier arguing the increasing threats we face in the security space.
The market can’t fix this because neither the buyer nor the seller cares. The owners of the webcams and DVRs used in the denial-of-service attacks don’t care. Their devices were cheap to buy, they still work, and they don’t know any of the victims of the attacks. The sellers of those devices don’t care: They’re now selling newer and better models, and the original buyers only cared about price and features. There is no market solution, because the insecurity is what economists call an externality: It’s an effect of the purchasing decision that affects other people. Think of it kind of like invisible pollution.
His argument is an interesting one and I think he's right. There are parts of the technology market where the buyer does care about security, but by device count that is far from a majority. I also appreciate his call to not connect things to the Internet just because. Realize there is risk associated with that.
