It’s a new feature! I spend way too much time reading interesting papers… I should not be so selfish as to not share them.
Clustering and Cloud Computing
The Helmer Cluster, but only because I can also be a
Dr Queue, not the only one, but a queue manager that proved its worth.
Terracotta because I have a big Java project that needs scaling and I believe that scaling out is a more…er…scalable approach.

Tokyo Cabinet seems to be the best tree-based database available these days. Takes me back to when I was using C-ISAM from Informix. NO, not all problems need a big OORDB thrown at them. In fact, transitioning some of your data to Tokyo Cabinet seems like a good application of “write first, optimize later.”
“How do they do it?” LinkedIn are kind enough to expose their architecture.
Twitter! Sorry, no link. Oh, well, maybe one. Oh, no, wait it’s down. No it’s back up! Wow, the Twitter API is currently capped to 10 requests per hour. Application developers: keep your calls to no more than one every 6 minutes…except for the public timeline, unless they decide to restrict its usage as well.
Wireframing, Blueprinting and A/B Testing
I need to post links here. Keep an eye on this blog entry.
Anyway, Yahoo now conveniently provides stencils for web mockups.
It’s beautiful. I’m just getting started, though.
For so-called “virtual companies” this would be the ultimate in source code

absolutely love how it allows me to try the craziest framework modifications
without having to suffer any consequence.
Easy Git -- “git for mere mortals”
Interact with your Subversion code base - man, I want the same thing for Perforce!
Educate yourself. Well, seems to work for me…
