Piatti del giorno 63
My new standing desk means I now sit at dinner wondering for, really, far too long why my legs are so tired.
- Ozymatheson - Epic. Features parsers (h/t Ken Ferry).
- Vesper Sync Diary #5 - Sync Tokens and Efficiency - This and an earlier entry put me in mind of my musings on the advantages of having “unique” identifiers actually be derived from the properties of the thing.
- The Good Life is a fiction - Better technology, not just more technology. Also, don’t be a hypocrite (h/t Tim Maly).
- Why You Should Never Use MongoDB - ‘Whether you’re duplicating critical data (ugh), or using references and doing joins in your application code (double ugh), when you have links between documents, you’ve outgrown MongoDB. When the MongoDB folks say “documents,” in many ways, they mean things you can print out on a piece of paper and hold. A document may have internal structure ― headings and subheadings and paragraphs and footers ― but it doesn’t link to other documents. It’s a self-contained piece of semi-structured data.’
- Man makes explosives from things purchased in post-security-check airport stores - Great. This ends with us all travelling naked and under general anaesthetic.
- The second operating system hiding in every mobile phone - What could possibly go wrong with a combination of enterprisey and hardware vendor-y software practices?
- objc.io on the App Store - Go give ‘em your money.
- UX and the Civilizing Process - UX : computers :: etiquette : humans.
- The Man Who Would Teach Machines to Think - Just in case you cleared that Hofstadter reading backlog.
- Everpix, Snapchat, and The Startup Lie - Make money, or “win the market?” Tough call.
- The future of programming - Hell of a blueprint. I for one welcome our new functional overlords (h/t @tavisrudd).
