Make sure you sign yourself up for something like https://haveibeenpwned.com if you haven't already. Sometimes being timely in responding to leaks can make a big difference on any further leaks.

Dropbox should absolutely be held to the flame for trying to downplay the severity of this. Their communication says 'This is purely a preventative measure', but if you had/have reused this password on any other sites (let's face it a huge proportion of non tech savvy people do this) then your entire online presence may be exposed.

It was pretty obvious the dropbox hack was real several years ago, because lots of spam mail started arriving at my dropbox-unique email almost immediately after the breach. I changed my email to another unique address quickly back then. Unique-per-service email addresses work pretty well as a canary for breaches. Just make sure there is more uniqueness than just the service name to such addresses, or someone could see your pattern and start spamming by guessing popular services.

On a side note, don't forget the time dropbox accepted ANY password during logins - http://www.cnet.com/news/dropbox-confirms-security-glitch-no...

50% of the leaked hashes were bcrypt and the other 50% were salted sha1.

So, asking the HNers who crack passwords or follow the tech closely and have a good feel:

Salted sha1 can be brute forced much quicker, but in practical terms what kind of complexity of password is vulnerable today if it was stored salted sha1 vs bcrypt?

And how can this be projected to change in the next couple of years?

Since lots of people will be rotating passwords, this is probably a good time to set up Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) as well.

I recommend Authy as your 2FA app, as it lets you set a backup password, which you can use to move your 2FA tokens between devices.

For your critical services, keeping encrypted copies of your backup codes is a must.

> As for Dropbox, they seem to have handled this really well.

I'm biased, but I can't agree with this. From what I can tell, there are two communications from Dropbox -- one in 2012 [1] and one last week [2].

In 2012 they did not disclose that hashes were stolen, so I don't see how it's really relevant. In the latest communication, they don't actually explain the risk to the user. They say it is "purely as a preventative measure" but if salts and hashes were accessed, then that is not the case.

Just because Troy doesn't have access to some of the salts, doesn't mean the attacker doesn't have access. We don't know how many iterations of SHA-1, but SHA-1 can be run by a single GPU on the order of billions of times per second. So unless Dropbox is coming out and saying they know for certain that random 128-bit salts were definitely not accessed by the attacker, almost all of the SHA1 hashed passwords are getting cracked. Users need to know their passwords are exposed, and must be reset not as a preventative measure, but because they are almost certain to be compromised.

As for the salted/bcrypt passwords, we can see from Troy's hash they used $2a$08$ which is bcrypt with a cost factor of 8 -- 2^8 iterations. Gosney's latest rig [3] could crack these bcrypt hashes at about 105,700 / 8 = 13,212 per second. That's not terrible, but that's still 416 billion tries in a year for a modest investment.

Dropbox is about the only service I use a memorable password for, as it has my 1Password file in it, which has my Google one-time-auth codes in it. If I lose my phone while on the road, only remembering my Dropbox password is going to get me out of the mess. Any sensible other solutions here? It's still ~14 characters, but other than making it more random, what are my options?

Can someone in the know indicate how to BEST manage passwords for different services in a secure way in 2016? Should I be using password managers ( la 1Password, LastPassword and others), or use something like Keychain Access on Mac OS X (what are the Windows equivalents?), anything else? It's important to note that not everyone is well-educated on the matter, despite the fact that most people on HN are technical people.

EDIT: Thanks everyone for your answers, this is a good example of the power of communities.

What really bothers be about this is that Dropbox hasn't bothered to reset the sessions. Even after I manually reset my password (which I wasn't prompted or forced to do btw), all my apps (iPhone, desktop etc) that have existing sessions wasn't expired. So for all I know, a hacker might already have an open session to my Dropbox and changing the password will not fix that

Clarification edit: I did receive the e-mail from Dropbox letting me know that I should change my password, but when visiting dropbox.com I was already logged in and wasn't prompted to perform the pw reset

How is it possible for Hashcat to crack a 20 character long random password in 6ms? That is mind boggling.

I thought he was just going to hash the password and see if it fit the leaked hash, but no, it looks like he actually did the reverse and cracked the hash to see if it fit the password, right?

Edit: oh it looks like he provided the password to hashcat in the form of a psudo 'dictionary' to use. So Hashcat was not really cracking it - just iterating through a 1 word dictionary - like he said.

Funny, I just got an email a week ago saying they had noticed my password hadn't been changed in awhile (2012, which was interesting based on the article). Sounds like they knew about this and beefed up security.Or, they beefed up security on newer passwords but didn't cut over the old ones? The email did not mention any data theft, kinda wish it did. Too little, too late.

Repeating from the other thread:

I highly recommend Troy's HIBP service, hiding your e-mail from showing up in public searches (important for opsec), and donating whatever you can to Troy. He's doing excellent work. This is the first time it's notified me and it was great, because I completely forgot I signed up. I appreciate a service that low maintenance.

HIBP is a truly essential service and I'd be happy to pay more. Even with good password discipline it's useful knowledge on your exposure and I cannot recommend it enough. He mentions it near the end but this is one of those no brainers that should be repeated very loudly.

It never ceases to amaze me how people have bought into "cloud" computing. Its hard enough to protect your own data, on your own secure machine. Once you entrust your data to a third party you should have absolutely no doubt that it is at risk. The larger the organization that that third party is, the more inherently insecure it is. In the cloud, it only takes one careless, stupid, or inept person to expose the data of thousands (or millions). And you can't fix stupid.

No thanks, I'll keep control over my own data.

Wild-ass speculation in the absence of more information than a tweet and a photo of a pad fire:

SpaceX test-fire the first stage motors before each launch. If this was a test firing that went spectacularly wrong, it's embarrassing -- but there won't have been any human beings within blast range and it's better to fail in test than to fail in flight with a payload on top.

(If it was a catastrophic failure during fueling/de-fueling ops, that's another matter entirely, and far more serious -- and an explosive test failure is serious enough as it is.)

http://www.spaceflightinsider.com/organizations/space-explor...

This article has some information on the new characteristics:

- Although considered to be an iterative upgrade from the Falcon 9 v1.1 that preceded it, the modifications to the Full Thrust version have increased the vehicles published liftoff capabilities by as much as 30 percent.

- A key component of this performance increase is the use of densified propellant. By chilling the liquid oxygen to minus 340 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 207 degrees Celsius) and the RP-1, a highly-refined form of kerosene used as rocket fuel, to 20 degrees Fahrenheit ( minus 7 degrees Celsius), SpaceX has demonstrated the capability to store more oxidizer and fuel in a given volume, as well as increase the flow of propellant through the turbopumps on the first stages nine Merlin 1D powerplants and on the upper stages lone MVac.

I have been waiting for this to hit 1.0 and more importantly get popular so that I can use it everywhere. I am really a fan of Yann Collet's work. These are extremely impressive work specially when you consider that lz4 seems to be better than snappy (by google) and zstandard from LZFSE (from apple). I think he is the first one to write a practical fast arithmetic coder using ANS. And look at how his huffman implementation blazes past zlib huffman though compresses less than FSE [0]. I also like reading his blog posts. While a lot of them goes over my head I can generally make a sense of what he is trying and why something's working despite the complexity.

The plot of compression ratio against speed for the various compression levels is pretty helpful for understanding its performance: https://scontent.fsnc1-3.fna.fbcdn.net/t39.2365-6/14146892_9...

"The x-axis is a decreasing logarithmic scale in megabytes per second; the y-axis is the compression ratio achieved."

I'd love to see a version of this chart that also included Brotli. (And I'm somewhat surprised Brotli isn't mentioned at all.)

AceJohnny2 1 ago 7 replies      
The modern trend of compressors is to use more memory to achieve speed. This is good if you're using big-iron cloud computers...

"Zstandard has no inherent limit and can address terabytes of memory (although it rarely does). For example, the lower of the 22 levels use 1 MB or less. For compatibility with a broad range of receiving systems, where memory may be limited, it is recommended to limit memory usage to 8 MB. This is a tuning recommendation, though, not a compression format limitation."

8MB for the smallest preset? Back in the mid-2000s, I was attending a Jabber/XMPP discussion, about the viability of using libz for compressing the stream. It turned out that even just a 32kb window is huge when your connection server is handling thousands of connections at a time, and they were investigating the effect of using a modified libz with an even smaller window (it was hard-coded, back then).

I know Moore's law is in ZStandard's favor w.r.t. memory usage (what's 8MB when your server's got 64GB or more?), but I think it's useful to note that this is squarely aimed at web traffic backed by beefy servers.

ohitsdom 1 ago 1 reply      
I'm a complete dunce when it comes to compression and how it fits in the industry, so help me out here. Say that everyone accepts that Zstandard is amazing and we should start using it. What would the adoption process look like? I understand individual programs could implement it since they would handle both compression and decompression, but what about the web?

Would HTTP servers first have to add support, then browser vendors would follow?

Also, previous discussions on zstd (not that its completely relevant) -https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8941955https://www.reddit.com/r/programming/comments/2tibrh/zstd_a_...

A recent compression discussion I saw involved how do compressors fare on uncompressible input? For example, suppose you wanted to add compression to all your outbound network traffic. What would happen if there was mixed compressible traffic along with the uncomressible kind? A common case would be sending HTML along with JPEG.

Good compressors can't squeeze any more out of a JPEG, but they can back off fast and go faster. Snappy was designed to do this, and even implementations of gzip do it too. It greatly reduces the fear of CPU overhead to always on compression. I wonder how Zstd handles such cases?

This is an awesome blog post that is very well written, but the lack of incompressible performance analysis prevents It from providing a complete overview of zstd.

Incompressible performance measurements are important for interactive/realtime workloads and the numbers are extremely interesting because they can differ dramatically from the average case measurements. LZ4 for instance has been measured at doing 10GB/sec on incompressible data on a single core of a modern Intel Xeon processor. At the other end of the spectrum is the worst case scenario for incompressible data where performance slows to a crawl. I do not recall any examples in this area, but the point is that it is possible for algorithms to have great average case performance and terrible worst case performance. Quick sort is probably the most famous example of that concept.

I have no reason to suspect that zstd has bad incompressible performance, but the omission of incompressible performance numbers is unfortunate.

From the bits of testing I've done today, it's phenomenally fast on x86. Much better than gzip (and pigz for that matter) in every metric I think I generally care about: CPU Usage, Compression Speed, Decompression Speed, Compression Ratio.

On other architecture the picture gets a bit murky, it seems to get handily beaten by pigz through what at first blush I'd guess is just sheer parallelism. It's got solid performance, and without a shadow of doubt faster than vanilla gzip. If/as/when I get time, it'll be interesting to dig into why performance is worse there.

I think for typical JS/CSS/HTML sizes, and decompression times, probably maximum compression ratio, followed by decompression speed is what I'd look for. I don't care too much about compression speed, in the sense that if I have to spend 1 minute compressing JS to crunch it by 10%, but I serve that file a million times, then as long as decompression doesn't negate the gain in network time saved, it's a win.

I guess the other factor for mobile is, besides memory and decompression speed, how do various compression schemes fare battery wise?

This is not about taking on Uber. Google is testing AI for self driving cars. Once we have self driving cars, the idea is that you deploy these cars and the cars figure out who to pick up and who to drop off and possible doing group pick ups along the way. Waze is going to predict who to pick up based on their collected data thus far using ML, their data scientists are going to supervise it and correct it. Once we have self driving cars, Google will have the tech that can manage assigning cars and picking people up. This is what it is all about.

They don't want to be on the hook for hundreds of thousands of jobs and fight that moral fight. Uber is about to have a huge amount of people displaced from the jobs they created, and Google doesn't want to share that reputational hazard imo. Good call for Google.

Google is not "taking on Uber." An important point is that Google is not making money off the payments for the ride, which presumably all go to the driver.

For the driver that means defraying the cost of a commute in return for going a few minutes out of his way. True ride-sharing, not a gypsy-cabs-plus-reputation network. It's more akin to a transport-specific Splitwise than to Uber.

What Google gets out of this is a real-world model of on demand automated transport patterns, pricing, demand, etc.

Honestly I wish they wouldn't try to compete on price. Maybe I'm alone with this, but I'd rather not feel obligated to tip a driver because the ride is so cheap. Pay them a living wage, let me pay the exact fee, and let me not have to carry goddamn cash like I used to in the era of Taxis.

e: Addressing common replies:

"This is for people commuting already" -- okay, point taken; my point about Uber/Lyft still stands.

"Tipping isn't obligatory" -- yes, it kind of is. Uber used to bar drivers form asking, but they recently lost a lawsuit over that rule and so now Uber drivers will occasionally ask for tips (which will cause it to slowly become the norm). When tipping becomes the norm, the low-base-wage of the driver becomes less of an 'issue', and then tipping becomes even more of a necessity as that is where the drivers will make their actual margins.

With so many competitors in the marketplace, such as Lyft, Gett, Via, Juno, and now Google, seems like Uber's leadership position is at risk. There appears to be very little differentiation between all of them, and while Google is starting out with carpooling, it is just a matter of time before they expand. Not sure how any investor could ever justify Uber's $60B valuation. In 10 years, will likely be 1/10 of that.

Back in the day, when Google opened up a 411 service, Microsoft did the same. It looked like a way to expand the search engine. After several years of operation, they shut it down. Why? They were collecting voice samples to feed into their voice recognition system, and they had collected enough.

I can't help but wonder if this ride sharing is a similar move. It sounds like a stepping stone for the kind of services that might be practical with self-driving cars. There might be some angle on collecting data that isn't obvious.

Google had to get in at some point. They should have entered a year ago may be but I think this is a good enough time. Google can afford to not take a cut for their service and hurt Uber quite a bit. If they are not taking a cut they can also reduce the price for the rider.

However, how can it be viable to the driver. I understand if someone is already going in that direction they can make a little money but if I want to live on it (like Uber is pitching) will the price be enough?

Also, with little money, 1) whole segments of the (population (especially in the bay area) won't be incentivized by the money, 2) people will be less likely to go out of their way to pick anyone up, and 3) one or two annoying ride sharers will cause drivers to decide picking people up isn't worth the occasional annoyance.

Sort of like drinking the Unicorn's blood to create a spell that will kill the Unicorn.

If what the article says is true about google vetting problem drivers with mere user reviews, they don't know what they are getting into.

I think the idea is great of course, and I imagine it would cut down on freeway traffic during commute hours. It just seems that the legal web of trust, insurance, safety, etc will be a lot to handle.

A couple comments for your own safety and the safety of the vehicle:

1) Those batteries should be in battery boxes. You can find them at any marine supply store. Note that for boats where batteries are commonly stored like you have them there, it's the law. For RV's it's a good practice and may be required by some insurers and in some states.

2) H2S also known as hydrogen sulfide. It's explosive and it's possible for even the best sealed batteries to have a problem whereby H2S is released. If those batteries have vent ports, you need to ensure they are connected to a vent tube and run out of the vehicle. If they don't have vent tubes, don't assume they won't vent. I run sealed batteries in my boat and it came with a H2S detector connected bilge ventilator. If the H2S detector senses a build-up of the gas it sets off an audible alarm and kicks the ventilator on. I've seen the aftermath of battery compartment explosions. Trust me, it's not something you want to experience. The cheapest option here is to get batteries which allow for the connection of a vent tube.

UPDATE: here's a decent article on the issue with a picture of a vented battery box (I didn't know those were a thing - cool!):

http://blog.rvshare.com/6-things-need-know-rv-battery-box/

UPDATE #2: just went out and looked at my boat. This is what's in the battery compartment attached to the bilge fan:

This resonated with me: "Life is easy. Humans are fucking badass -- we absolutely dominate our environment and are so smart and powerful."

I really understood that in the desert in Utah, where I got the feeling that I wasn't supposed to be there, far away from any semblance of civilization, but there I was surviving just fine with the help of our machinations.

I bought my RV for what you did, and its a perfectly comfortable home... a home that goes 80mph! I've been to almost every state now, and lived on hilltops with "million dollar" views, been in the desert under the stars, worked from deep in the rainforest in the pacific northwest, all for less money than rent for my apartment was. We can live comfortably for about a week completely off the grid. I would have bought a smaller, more offroad capable van, but I live in it with my fiance, so that was untenable.

I don't know how long you've been doing it, but there are definitely stressors and downsides that accompany the lifestyle. My RV was broken into once and I had everything stolen, and since then I've been constantly on edge when being away from my vehicle, so I often wish it looked beat to shit to deter people from messing with it. Also, staying in parking lots sucks and is sad if you're doing it for any extended period of time. I definitely have a missing sense of community and permanence, but its been a great journey!

Great article, small technical issue:

First, cut all the 0 AWG wire. Why 0 AWG? Because I had a 1500 watt inverter, which meant I could be pulling 150 amps (1500 watts output / 120 volts output 12 volts input = 150 amps input).

That's nearly the right answer, but "watts / volts volts" is not going to end in "amps" as an answer. I'd suggest: 1500 watts / 12 volts = 125 amps.

I also whole heartedly agree with him with statements like "By far the most beautiful place I've driven through has been the drive from Butte, MT to Idaho Falls, ID.". I drive mostly across the country twice a year. I avoid interstate highways. The evening routine is to look at satellite imagery for interesting terrain, look at something like Panoramio to see where people take pictures and of what, then piece together some travel for the next day. Pull over and take a mini-hike if anything looks interesting.

As cool as this, like a lot of folks here I don't see how a pickup and a gooseneck wouldn't be a better (probably cheaper) option, even if you had to renovate / shop around for the gooseneck.

I know a whole lot of folks who live this way, mostly itinerant musicians.

While this is a much nicer build-- I think it's quite beautiful-- it is a lot closer to a custom conversion van most folks I know have much different, less successful experiences with DIY RVs.

To the folks who cite "stealth" as a rationale here, there are a lot of reasons why you might get kicked off a patch of ground... one persons "hack" is another person's criminal trespass. There are a lot of great places that you can camp out without getting hassled and without relying on other folks footing the bill for your plumbing and pavement.

To the folks citing mobility, I still don't see how that kind of van is more mobile than a pickup.

So while I think that it's really cool-- I gotta say that I think it would have to be cheaper / easier / more reliable to buy a pickup and 5th wheel or similar.

I'm a full-time pharmacist working 50 hours a week, with several investment rental properties.

Since April of this year I've been sleeping in my 2002 Toyota 4Runner in the parking lot at work. Shower at the gym, infrequent laundry runs, hang out all day at the library with all the other strange people. Pros: feeling of simplicity and freedom; enough said. Cons: a mid-sized SUV is too small and not private enough. I want privacy when I first wake up and put on my contacts and get dressed. I want to wake up, sit up and meditate for 30 minutes without anyone seeing me.

I'm getting a Ford E-150 van for $1500 next week. Going to put in hardwood flooring, maybe insulation and plywood on the walls. Excited.

Or you could just move to Poland. $33,750 could buy you studio in any medium town in Poland, even in sub-million population cities.

You'd get: no mortgage, apartment with a toilet, clean running water, wifi and all the electricity that you'll ever need. 5-10 times more area for your stuff. Monthly cost of utilities, tax and fee towards building maintenance of about $150 in total, access to a lot of young, English speaking people you could hire for cheap to help you with your projects.

I am having a hard time with this article. On the one hand, it resonates with me DEEPLY.

"Sure, it's clich, but it's clich for a reason -- this subconscious drive for freedom is hard-wired in our DNA. No modern comfort or toy can take the place of true autonomy."

On the other hand, I can't deny certain life comforts. Relationships come to mind when considering a life like this. Sure, living frugally on the road while coding your own project sounds exhilarating. But I wonder how I'd feel without my significant other?

I guess what I want more than a life in a van, is economic freedom with a home.

I always read these stories with a sense of awe and wonder. "I took 2 years off of my totally boring office job to X" where X is something that is 1. expensive and/or 2. not generating income or not nearly as much income as Boring Office Job. How the hell does one live without their salary for 2 years without going into debt or depleting savings? Don't you people have student loans to pay off, medical bill payments, or other financial obligations that can't be delayed? I don't think I could last much more than 3 months, and I'm quite proud of my meager emergency savings. What the hell do you people do for a living that you can save such a vast amount of money (and presumably blow it during said 2 year activity)?

I'm not criticizing--just very curious. Most of the time when this kind of question is asked, the response is a vague and coy, "Well I got a little savings..." Awesome--how on earth?

"use the public facilities"

Yeah, right. That's the plan for the first little while & then you'll be just pooping in the woods.

You see, we're in europe in a motorhome. Every time we see a little camper we know two things are going to happen. They are going to start sliding doors at all hours of the day.

And they are going to go poop in the woods.

And there are hundreds of them.

So be sure to get yourself a proper porta potty. Nobody wants to see your toilet paper.

I'm actually curious about the insurance situation. If you are living in your van I would expect the insurance to either be a lot more or worse, to decide not to cover you because you didn't get a special policy. Then there's the issue of what happens if you are in an accident because now your wheels and your bed are in the shop, a shop which is not going to be able to restore your situation properly.

I knew nothing about insulation, wiring, woodwork, power tools, etc. and learned everything as I built it.

I am about to embark on a similar journey. I started off buying a 1993 33' Diesel pusher motorhome with the intent to travel the US fulltime while working remotely. It was awesome fixing it up and making it livable, modern, beautiful, and adding solar. Working with my hands was extremely rewarding! That said I soon learned that 33' is a huge vehicle which I did not feel comfortable driving regularly over mountains and severely hindered locations I could camp at. Now that big rig is for sale... instead I've founded a really cool travel trailer with loads of solar ready to go! I plan to pull that behind my 4runner equiped for overland adventures and cannot wait to get started! Great article and I hope others can try this lifestyle. I hope to share some of my experiences with others as well.

This life really isn't sustainable as he gets older, and he's very vulnerable to risk, accident, or loss. Oh, it seems romantic as hell, but the first time the flu hits you, you suddenly realize you've chosen to stick yourself into a tiny box with no indoor plumbing, no quiet, and that has to move every few days or the police will start rapping on your windows.

Or when the van breaks down, and you have zero choice but to fix it right away, and you have to pray to god you budgeted enough to cover it. Plus the van itself wears out much faster than a vehicle most people use because it has to move so much. RV lifestyle in general is far more expensive than people realize, and provides zero equity. If he ever wishes to expand his game business, he's going to have a rough time.

It's romantic, but it's very much a young person's game and he'll probably discover the joys of home ownership when he's 35 and trying to sleep in his van in 90 degree weather.

Having a campervan without a toilet might bite you in some places. New Zealand used to be a great place for this but a couple of years ago they made it illegal to sleep in such a vehicle just about everywhere except designated pay-per-night campgrounds and certain districts each with their own special rules. Even then you're usually not allowed to linger more than a few days at a time in one place.

I doubt America will go that way with so many independent states and so much wilderness though. I'm amazed he can sleep in Wal-mart's carpark.

Kudos to this guy. I'm in my early 30s. My wife and I sold our house almost 2 years ago, bought an RV, and we've been traveling debt-free ever since. Feels good, man. But it's not without its drawbacks. Loneliness can be a constant battle when you're away from family, friends and coworkers. It took about a year to get comfortable with the travel routine. And then there's the maintenance. If I knew all of this ahead of time, I'd still do it.

I've spent 6 of the past 7 years living in an RV (motorhome first, now an old Avion travel trailer with a big old truck to tow it). I recommend it for anyone who is unencumbered enough of other people and responsibilities to do so (i.e., it may not be the right thing for a family with kids, though I know some families with kids who do it and seem happy).

The freedom to travel is magnificent. It precludes many kinds of opportunities, but if you can work remotely, why not do it at the beach or in the mountains or in the desert or wherever you like? It's not dramatically less expensive than living in fixed housing (though that depends on where you were living in the house and where you're parking your RV; when I first started I moved out of a tiny rental house in Mountain View, CA, which cost $2145/month, so I'm not spending anywhere near that now), or at least it hasn't been for me, but there are many benefits outside of cost.

In the US these are not as seen as romantic and adventurous as they are in Australia, New Zealand and Europe

One thing I'll say: a pop up conversion can be done while maintaining the possibility of incognito mode, and it is really lovely when you are in proper campgrounds to have the pop up!

So happy to see this post on HN, but also kind of sad because if this because a thing it will no longer be as unique, and they will start drawing more attention. Also, people in these campers are the coolest, nicest, most down to earth, happiest, most respectful, adventurous, amazing people (in my experience), and if this becomes 'cool,' then we'll start having the cool kids driving around in these.

20yrs_no_equity 3 ago 0 replies      
I've spent 11 of the past 20 years "homeless" by choice following various practices from living on a boat, to living in a truck camper, to traveling the world living in AirBnBs, to occasionally renting apartments but never really living there. But I'll come back to that.

I want to address several peoples concerns about this guys lifestyle and the presumed limitations:

0. First off Loved that he was using Soylent. That solves a big problem of needing dried food but not liking freeze dried food. If I were to go back to vehicle living I would use a combo of Soylent and Sous Vide. Sous Vide cookers like the Anova are very small, and you can do it just with boiled water, zip lock bags and a thermometer if you want. The results are really fantasic. 30 seconds searing steaks on the grill then 40 minutes in the bath and you have better steaks than you can get at any restaurant for less than $50-- and you can do that on top of am mountain if you wanted! So the food situation is much better than the days of crates of raman.

1. Sex. Sex is totally possible, and it's not creepy at all. When you get on the road and you're traveling you will run into people who are going the same route multiple times. In this way there's a virtual community. This varies regionally of course, travel by train in europe or in alaska for the summer and it becomes pretty tight nit. The women and men you meet there are not exactly going to turn their nose up at your van because that's how they are traveling to. There's a whole vagabond subculture in the USA that ranges from kids hoping trains to techies in vans like this guy to Oldsters in RVs. And there's nothing sexier than a guy who will break with convention and go do interesting things. FTR, my partner and I picked up a woman in the UK who then travelled with us and lived with us for a couple years in poly triad. IT only lasted three years but I don't think the definition of a successful relationship should only be ones that end in death!

2. Cost- you really can save a lot of money. IT's amazing that you can live around the world traveling full time for less than the cost of living in a major west coast city. If you're doing a startup, that's really nice- be in berlin, then go to london, etc. We ran a three person startup (the triad above) going form england to Romania to Chile. While we didn't live as cheaply as we should have or could have (it's a skill) we didn't live more expensively than we would have if we stayed in Seattle (and we never would have met the woman in the UK). When it costs less or doesn't cost more but you have a better experience, isn't that a much better value?

3. The major factor is movement. When you're still- say at a campground or an AirBnB, or anchored at a dock, you save your movement energy, and thus cost, and you spend time working and enjoying. When you're underway- sailing requires attention as does driving, taking trains and planes costs money, boats and cars take gas. The ideal situation is one where you can stay places for a period of time (we used to stay in a country 90 days- the visa limit) to maximize your productivity on the road. This is a lifestyle, not a vacation from life. You earn money when you go, but you earn less money on tavel days.

4. Settling in- another part of the cost of travel is the settling in time. I need to have a good work chair and in each country we would spend the first week or so getting our spot set up to be productive on our startup.

5. The best thing about traveling is meeting the locals- especially outside the USA. This is the reason for the 90 day visa too. You can build real relationships. 4 countries in a year is much better than 9 countries in 4 days! And it's cheaper per-day, because you can be working during the day, and thus it's sustainable.

6. There are many ways to do it. I like the boat the best- it was only 30 feet but it was center cockpit and huge. If I had the balls of a blue water sailor I never would have left and would be traveling around the world in it. But it takes a rare breed to cross an ocean in a 30 foot cruiser!

This van is very much like my experience in the Truck Camper. The truck camper cost me $5,500 all in- an old Toyota Pickup and a $3,500 SKAMPER. You have to crank it to raise the roof. I travelled all the way to Prudhoe Bay in that truck- spending a couple weeks north of the arctic circle.

You can never forget an experience like that!

7. Eventually I vowed to never stop. I decided this was a philosophy and whatever methodology it doesn't really matter. Am I still traveling full time? I'm on a lease, so many of you would say no, but I think I am. You could be too.

What's the difference in lifestyle between crashing in a French student's flat in Romania for 3 months and being on a lease in the USA for 6? In romania 90 days is the max visa and maximizing productive time was ideal. a 6 month lease in the USA isn't that different from the 6 months we lived in the UK (they have a longer visa for US residents).

I now think in terms of the GPWR - Gross Personal Weight Rating. That is the total weight of me and all my possessions. When I was on the boat it was around 13,000 pounds - most of it boat. For the truck it was about 7,000 pounds, most of it truck.

When we were backpacking it was all in the pack- about 60 pounds. Now I am staying in apartments but restrict myself to only what can fit in my car (so I can move across country at a moments notice if I want.) I don't live in the car so it's a tradeoff, I have to rent a sleeping space.

But I'm still mobile. I don't have a bed frame, for instance, I bought a bunch of Akro Mils plastic crates. Turn them upside down and they make a really damn solid bed frame (best one I've ever had, actually) The mattress fits in the back of my car with the seats folded down. I have a mid sized SUV and camping is easy- just put the mattress in the car. Better than a tent (stays warmer). But when I need to move, I can turn the crates right side up and all my possessions go into them.

So, where should I live next? Once my lease is up, I'm going. (and knowing that also puts the kibosh on silly buying.)

Start thinking of every possession as weight added to your GPWR. Do you want to live in backpack? Pare down. Do you want to live in a van? You don't have to be as careful but you should think about how many TVs you buy.

Speaking of minimal living, I've just recently moved to a new city for work, and I've shacked myself up in a backpackers, and plan on staying at the backpackers probably until the end of the year.

It has a lot going for it. It's cheaper than rent (by a significant amount), and it's literally 3 minutes from work. I also get to meet lots of interesting people.

I have my backpack and a laundry bag of kit, and that's it. It's about as minimal as you can get, which has been an interesting experience for me as I usually have stacks and stacks of stuff.

It does have some disadvantages, such as being rather noisy, and the fact that you have to carry all your valuables around with you wherever you go, since things tend to go missing.

Isn't this only true if you don't have a fixed rate mortgage? If you bought a house in the 90s then I'm almost sure you're paying less than the average of rent your house might fetch. I've never amortized the cost over the lifetime of the house though.

Anyone have any experience or knowledge about doing this in the Bay Area?

Awesome story, loved the pictures of building out the van.

One concern I have is that if you are idling the engine and have the fantastic fan on, wouldn't you be sucking exhaust fumes into the vehicle? Or is the hole at the back meant for exhaust with the fan pushing air in?

wow, what a treat. love the writing and layout of this blog post.

van life is basically not viable right now. people dont like taking their shits in mcdonalds. vans get super cold and moisture can be a huge problem. showers have to be in gyms unless you want to carry tons of water with you. most areas are very hostile to van dwellers from what i can tell. but there are interesting solutions to these problems.

- van dwellers are not received well in most places. you have to park on the side of the street somewhere a lot of the time. so the obvious solution is to create some kind of business that does lot rentals. you can pay a very low fee and have a nice place to park for the night. this could be really great -- images of all kinds of different people meeting and connecting come to mind. but there is the problem that these businesses would be overrun by poor people for lack of a better word. they would become ghettos and attract a lot of crime. so perhaps a better solution is to create an app where anyone can rent out their driveway and vet each van dweller on their own based on their social media, past reviews and other information provided on the app. also vans are physically dispersed and criminals dont have a one stop shop for vulnerable vans.

- taking shits in gas stations, taking showers in gyms and moisture and cold can all be solved by the same thing: making vans from the ground up that are meant for living. i think in the end, if you want a van that is nice to live in then you need to put down real money just like any other dwelling. the van meant for living would look like this: has EV drive train and a huge battery. in the near future this will be complemented by a sophisticated generator (with huge fuel reserve) that can operate at low wattage when demand is low or operate at high wattage when demand is high such as when driving with a low battery. in the far future batteries alone will be enough. solar should be included but only to prevent the battery from losing charge completely when sitting around for a long time. showering is done with recycled water. water is stored in the floor pan and passed through a filter between showers. ozone is easily generated and mixed with the shower water regularly to kill bacteria. the filter used could be very sophisticated if hundreds of showers without refilling were desired. the toilet would need to be a revolution in toilets. there has been a lot of work by the likes of the gates foundation to create toilets that are less resource intensive and clean for use in the third world. the best products of these efforts are desiccation toilets that essentially desiccate the feces though various means. one version drys the feces and burns it to dry more and also drive water purification. the toilet in the van would do something similar. the toilet would disinfect thoroughly with chlorine or ozone and then desiccate. the water left over would be put back into the top chamber of the toilet so to speak and used for the next flush. the desiccated feces could then be stored in much less volume than non desiccated feces and with less hassle. disposing of it would be pretty easy. other issues such as temperature and moister could be taken care of with heavy duty insulation, de-humidification and other things that are built into the van by design rather than added in as an after-thought if added at all. anyway, overall what you have is an extremely sophisticated, several hundred thousand dollar vehicle. thats what it would take to make van life a viable option for more than a year or two imo.

As always, devil is in the details.

If you look at the fine print in the published "Guidelines for implementing Net Neutratily" [1] linked in the article you will see that there are 3 exceptions to the rule (a,b,c). Being "c" the one that should fear us most:

EXCEPTIONS

 a) "comply with Union legislative acts (...)
-> meaning that a court order can change Net Neutrality, hmmm ok.

 b) preserve the integrity and security of the network, of services provided via that network, and of the terminal equipment of end-users;
-> meaning that in order to guarantee the security of the network Net Neutrality may be avoided. I'm so-so on this one.

 c) prevent impending network congestion and mitigate the effects of exceptional or temporary network congestion, provided that equivalent categories of traffic are treated equally.
-> Meaning that ISPs can throttle specific categories of traffic at their own will.

This last one ruins the whole law. And this is not what me as European wanted. ISPs won :(

Next fight : That ISPs advertise the minimum guaranteed bandwidth and are banned from advertising the maximum theoretical number.

Then only we could measure that they do offer the same bandwidth with Netflix and Vimeo as they advertise. Net neutrality at its best.

Edit: Of course the number will be very low because they have to (God forbid!) provision their network to serve this bandwidth to all customers during peak hours. But what we're looking for is not a huge number - we're looking for a number that allows meaningful comparison with competitors.

It encourages me to see that the European court at least has some people on it that seem to understand that net neutrality is in fact a human rights issue.

And this is why Brexit is so heart-breaking. I'm surrounded by people in my personal life who think it's a fantastic idea, but they're not the most... informed? Likewise for local politicians.

(Side note to my rant: I have this theory that the rise of the iPhone, and the fact that it is such a big part of people's lives now, has fooled regular folks into believing that they're experts on technology. I have no more than anecdotal evidence for this).

I strongly suspect that local legislators will see no conflict whatsoever with scrapping these laws when the exit finally comes, and it saddens me that I'm surrounded by a lot of people that will be cheering when it happens.

This is from a real conversation I had this week:

"What it boils down to is do you want to have us control our own laws and decisions and borders, or have to take orders from some bureaucrat in Brussels that doesn't understand us?"

Yes, I would rather have decisions made by people in Brussels that understand what they're doing.

For your convenience, here's just the text "in the boxes" (the Recitals), from http://berec.europa.eu/eng/document_register/subject_matter/...

These are the first 9, the other 10 are here: https://gist.github.com/daveloyall/a1112bb70412d77bebc809090...

Recital 1=========

This Regulation aims to establish common rules to safeguard equal andnon-discriminatory treatment of traffic in the provision of internetaccess services and related end-users rights. It aims to protectend-users and simultaneously to guarantee the continued functioning ofthe internet ecosystem as an engine of innovation.

Recital 2=========

The measures provided for in this Regulation respect the principle oftechnological neutrality, that is to say they neither impose nordiscriminate in favour of the use of a particular type of technology.

Recital 3=========

The internet has developed over the past decades as an open platformfor innovation with low access barriers for end-users, providers ofcontent, applications and services and providers of internet accessservices. The existing regulatory framework aims to promote theability of end-users to access and distribute information or runapplications and services of their choice. However, a significantnumber of end-users are affected by traffic management practices whichblock or slow down specific applications or services. Those tendenciesrequire common rules at the Union level to ensure the openness of theinternet and to avoid fragmentation of the internal market resultingfrom measures adopted by individual Member States.

Recital 4=========

An internet access service provides access to the internet, and inprinciple to all the end-points thereof, irrespective of the networktechnology and terminal equipment used by end-users. However, forreasons outside the control of providers of internet access services,certain end points of the internet may not always beaccessible. Therefore, such providers should be deemed to havecomplied with their obligations related to the provision of aninternet access service within the meaning of this Regulation whenthat service provides connectivity to virtually all end points of theinternet. Providers of internet access services should therefore notrestrict connectivity to any accessible end-points of the internet.

Recital 5=========

When accessing the internet, end-users should be free to choosebetween various types of terminal equipment as defined in CommissionDirective 2008/63/EC (1). Providers of internet access services shouldnot impose restrictions on the use of terminal equipment connecting tothe network in addition to those imposed by manufacturers ordistributors of terminal equipment in accordance with Union law.

Recital 6=========

End-users should have the right to access and distribute informationand content, and to use and provide applications and services withoutdiscrimination, via their internet access service. The exercise ofthis right should be without prejudice to Union law, or national lawthat complies with Union law, regarding the lawfulness of content,applications or services. This Regulation does not seek to regulatethe lawfulness of the content, applications or services, nor does itseek to regulate the procedures, requirements and safeguards relatedthereto. Those matters therefore remain subject to Union law, ornational law that complies with Union law.

Recital 7=========

In order to exercise their rights to access and distribute informationand content and to use and provide applications and services of theirchoice, end-users should be free to agree with providers of internetaccess services on tariffs for specific data volumes and speeds of theinternet access service. Such agreements, as well as any commercialpractices of providers of internet access services, should not limitthe exercise of those rights and thus circumvent provisions of thisRegulation safeguarding open internet access. National regulatory andother competent authorities should be empowered to intervene againstagreements or commercial practices which, by reason of their scale,lead to situations where end-users choice is materially reduced inpractice. To this end, the assessment of agreements and commercialpractices should, inter alia, take into account the respective marketpositions of those providers of internet access services, and of theproviders of content, applications and services, that areinvolved. National regulatory and other competent authorities shouldbe required, as part of their monitoring and enforcement function, tointervene when agreements or commercial practices would result in theundermining of the essence of the end-users rights.

Recital 8=========

When providing internet access services, providers of those servicesshould treat all traffic equally, without discrimination, restrictionor interference, independently of its sender or receiver, content,application or service, or terminal equipment. According to generalprinciples of Union law and settled case-law, comparable situationsshould not be treated differently and different situations should notbe treated in the same way unless such treatment is objectivelyjustified.

Recital 9=========

The objective of reasonable traffic management is to contribute to anefficient use of network resources and to an optimisation of overalltransmission quality responding to the objectively different technicalquality of service requirements of specific categories of traffic, andthus of the content, applications and services transmitted. Reasonabletraffic management measures applied by providers of internet accessservices should be transparent, non-discriminatory and proportionate,and should not be based on commercial considerations. The requirementfor traffic management measures to be non-discriminatory does notpreclude providers of internet access services from implementing, inorder to optimise the overall transmission quality, traffic managementmeasures which differentiate between objectively different categoriesof traffic. Any such differentiation should, in order to optimiseoverall quality and user experience, be permitted only on the basis ofobjectively different technical quality of service requirements (forexample, in terms of latency, jitter, packet loss, and bandwidth) ofthe specific categories of traffic, and not on the basis of commercialconsiderations. Such differentiating measures should be proportionatein relation to the purpose of overall quality optimisation and shouldtreat equivalent traffic equally. Such measures should not bemaintained for longer than necessary.

reikonomusha 3 ago 2 replies      
I think there's some good info in this article covered by various degrees of misinformation. For some reason, the article starts off with this totally wrong definition of big-O, and proceeds to make conclusions with this wrong definition. Let me provide the accurate definition:

The statement "f is O(g)" means there exists some input, call it t, such that for every x >= t, it only takes some constant multiplier M (i.e., constant in x) to always have g absolutely no smaller than f. In notation:

|f(x)| <= M * |g(x)|, where x is at least t.

This bit about "x is at least t" is very important and notifies us that this is "asymptotic behavior".

It does not make a difference how wacky or weird f is compared to g below t. It can contain all these crazy memory hierarchy artifacts, it could contain a short burst of exponential slowdown, it could contain anything.

Furthermore, according to the above definition, big-O has nothing to do with any tangible quantity whatsoever. It's a method for comparing functions. The functions may represent whatever is of tangible or intangible interest: memory, time, money, instructions, ...

Big-O analysis usually posits that the details below t aren't the details that matter. (Of course, there are situations where they do, but in such you would not use big-O.) If you want to have some analysis that is global, you don't need asymptotic analysis (though it might help as a start). You can just talk about functions that are strictly greater than or less than your function of interest everywhere. But these analyses are difficult because a much higher level of understanding of your function of interest is required.

The reason has to do with hashing, but a different type: TLB.

The problem with this analysis is that in the graph in the very first part he shows that memory access IS O(1) for pretty substantial scaling factors, and then when you hit some limit(e.g. size of cache, size of RAM) access times increase very rapidly. Sure, if you draw a line across 6 orders of magnitude, it ends up looking like O(n^1/2), but how often do you scale something through 6 orders of magnitude?

The "memory access is O(1)" approximation is pretty good, certainly good enough for almost all every day use. The median size of a hash table I allocate definitely fits in L1 cache, so why shouldn't I think of it as O(1)? If you are reading off of disk, the O(1) approximation holds as long as your dataset stays between 1 MB and 1 GB. That's quite a bit of room to play around in.

Yes, you need to be aware of access times and the changes in them if you are really scaling something way up. But I'm not convinced that I shouldn't just keep thinking of "hash access is O(1)" as a convenient, generally accurate shortcut.

ChuckMcM 3 ago 6 replies      
Since it is a topic I'm interested in I took the time to read all 4 parts, the author manages to summarize it in a paragraph which would have been helpful at the beginning:

When somebody says Iterating through a linked list is a O(N) operation what they mean to say is The number of instructions needed to be executed grows linearly with the size of the list.. That is a correct statement. The argument Im trying to make is that it would be a mistake to also assume that the amount of time needed would grow linearly with the size of the list as well. This is an important distinction. If you only care about the number of instructions executed thats fine, you can use Big-O for that! If you care about the time taken, thats fine too, and you can use Big-O for that too!

Sadly, he doesn't take this knowledge to its conclusion. Let's introduce the notation Oi() for the Big-O notation in instructions, and Ot() for the Big-O notation for time.

Lemma: For all f(N), if Oi(f(N)) > Oi(g(N)), Ot(f(N) will be > Ot(g(N)).

Or put another way, it's important not to confuse complexity scaling with time scaling, but the more complex the computation, the longer it will take.

Great series of articles and the lessons are very important to someone writing performance system's programs.

Here is another chart I like you show people:https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/4893/mem_lat3.jpg

This is a circular linked list walk where the elements of the list are in order in memory. So in C the list walk looks like this: while (1) p = *p;

Then the time per access was measured as the total length of the array was increased and the stride across that array was increased. The linked-list walk prevents out of order processors from getting ahead. (BTW another huge reason why vectors are better than lists)

(This is from an old processor that didn't have a memory prefetcher with stride detection in the memory controller. A modern x86 will magically go fast.)

From that chart you can read, L1 size, L2 size, cache line size, cache associativly, page size, TLB size. (It also exposed an internal port scheduling bug on the L2. A 16-byte stride should have been faster than a 32-byte stride.)

Math is pure and not constrained by the real world. Big O analysis begins with the assumption that you have unlimited uniform memory. The author points out that memory is not uniform in the real world. It's equally untrue that we have infinite memory at our disposal. The limits of the real world are good to remember but that does not invalidate Big O analysis.

corysama 3 ago 0 replies      
A lot of people are pointing out that BigO is a purely theoretical, mathematical model that should be understood and used properly without regard to silly details like physics.

That is theoretically correct. But, the difference between theory and practice is that in practice there exists a large percentage of programmers writing code for the real world without understanding and using BigO properly. Their mental model of performance begins and ends with BigO. As far as they are aware, its model is reality.

MaulingMonkey 3 ago 1 reply      
The article is still wrong - iterating through a linked list is O(N log(N) sqrt(N)). You can't have infinite nodes in a 16-bit, 32-bit, or even a 64-bit address space - to deal truly with N, one must consider the more generic case of a variable address encoding, which has a variable size (log(N)) and associated lookup etc. costs as the number of nodes grows.

This is the motivation behind e.g. the "x32 ABI" in Linux: All the power of x86-64 instructions, with none of the additional cache pressure/overhead of 64-bit pointers - log(32) being cheaper than log(64).

...ahh, being this explicit in your Big-O notation is probably not that useful, usually, although I've seen it occasionally in papers (where they're quite explicit about also counting the number of bits involved). Maybe they're dealing with BigNum s, which would make it a practical concern? The key takeaway is this:

> That I use Big O to analyze time and not operations is important.

Time depends on compiler settings, allocation strategy, and a whole host of other factors that are outside the purview of your algorithm. Operations is a lot easier to contrast and compare between different algorithms, the meat of what you're trying to do most of the time. Both are valid choices, just know which one you're dealing with.

The time factors are good to be aware of, to be sure - the performance pitfalls of (potentially) highly fragmented, hard-to-prefetch linked lists over unfragmented flat arrays should be well known to anyone charged with optimizing code - but it's probably easier to think of them as some nebulous large time constant (as even array iteration is going to hit the same worse-than-O(N) behavior, although with proper prefetching the bottleneck may become memory bandwidth rather than memory latency) and deal with those differences with profiling and other measurements, instead of Big-O notation.

I guess the author is trying to simplify, but its way more complex than that. Simply assuming a few layers of cache completely misses all the other layers that have effects starting with.

Cache lines, RAM Read vs write turnaround, dram pages, number of open dram pages, other CPU's interfering with the same RAM channel, remote NUMA nodes, and probably some I'm forgetting. All this is very similar to secondary storage access rules (even for SSDs)...

It's amazing how many people didn't actually read all 4 parts of the article.

His argument has nothing to do with caching or prefetching, etc.

First, it's about random access. You can't prefetch a random fetch!

Second, he's measuring time, a perfectly valid thing to do. And the reality is when you lay your memory cells out in 2 dimensions it takes order of sqrt(n) time to fetch a random memory cell value, where n is the number of memory cells you're using.

Third, it turns out order of sqrt(n) time is the best you can do even if you had the best technology in the universe.

> For the purpose of this series of articles I'll be using the O(f(N)) to mean that f(N) is an upper bound (worst case) of the time it takes to accomplish a task accessing N bytes of memory (or, equivalently, N number of equally sized elements).

That's not really valid; it's not how algorithmic analysis works. The author's conclusion for what is happening and why is correct, but I believe he is confused about how to get there.

Simply, when doing complexity analysis on an algorithm, one must always count an operation. It's not okay to point to the time taken for an implementation and say "That's our function." It is a function, but it's a function of time, not a count of how many operations are performed at given sizes of N.

However, he is correct that naive analysis of arrays and linked lists will result in this odd behavior: arrays will tend to outperform lists on real systems. The problem with the naive analysis is in what it counts. For example, on an insert, a naive analysis will count the number of elements accessed in the structure. That's naive because it assume all accesses are the same - which is what he's getting at with the "myth of RAM". Because of the memory hierarchy, they are not all equal.

But the correct response is not to give up counting operations and look at time, the correct response is to find the right thing to count. And the right thing to count is basically going to be last level cache misses - the operations that force one to go to memory. If you do that, then you will find that the operations you are counting will correlate much better to the actual time spent.

In some places, the author gets this mostly correct: "You can also use Big-O to analyze the time it takes to access a piece of memory as a function of the amount of memory you are regularly accessing." That's fine, as you're counting memory accesses.

In other places, it's not correct: "That I use Big O to analyze time and not operations is important." You can't count time, only operations. You want to count the operations that correlate with your actual running time, but the entire point of good analysis is to find those operations. You can't just shortcut it, only measure time, and then call it algorithmic analysis.

The author gets a lot right, but despite the lengthy discussion, I think he still has some confusions about algorithm complexity analysis.

For the record, these lessons should be familiar to anyone who has done serious performance analysis of computer systems, either on their own, or in the context of a course that focused on systems or architecture.

The article is conflating theoretical algorithm analysis and low level implementation details.

Big O analysis is a theoretical measurement of algorithm performance. By definition it ignores details like memory access speed, the exact instructions used, and other details of specific hardware architectures.

Real life algorithm implementations obviously need to deal with those low level implementation details, but that doesn't change the theoretical analysis. It's easy enough to find (or design) machines without cache where this difference in memory speed doesn't exist.

I'm not sure the cost of accessing the storage medium belongs in the complexity of the algorithm, since that cost will change based on the storage medium, not the algorithm itself. It strikes me as more of a constant, (even though it isn't constant).

Still, interesting read, nontheless.

I find this really odd, it's not wrong, but it doesn't invalidate O(1). It's mashing two-things together that are unneccessary and can cause misunderstanding.

Big-O provides a decent tool for generic analysis and an understanding of access times of memory hierarchies. Since memory hierarchies can vary, they shouldn't be considered while doing generic analysis, much anyways.

Both are important to understand. The key thing is setting your Big-O access expectations to the slowest level of your heirarchy. In that way, your expectation remains generic and still proximally accurate across the average cases.

When you consider them together, think of the heirarchy as a series of piecewise functions that modify the value of the constant time based on the speed of the bounds that fit your data.

This square of N notation falls apart in other cases. 128GB's of RAM would have roughly the same access speed as the 8GB's he had available, if he had that much in his system. But having 128GB of RAM would completely destroy the squaring by flattening an entire magnitude from his hypothesis.

But it is a nice display of memory heirarchies, IMO.

Nah. Sorry cache-misses don't count as part of a theoretical analysis on complexity. Why? Because you're getting into specific access pattern performance. Complexity is about "all things being equal". Is it the only thing you should consider? At first it should be, then if you run into a problem with a specific structure that has remarkable scale or access then go ahead and consider what the underlying hardware might be doing with the specific access patterns your structure is encountering.

It's interesting to see linked-list as his example, because it is the most likely to have cache-misses as you move through it as the allocations are very fragmented. I'd be very curious to see the same chart on a warmed-up hash-table.

Also, if we're considering the hardware, can we take into account pre-fetching and branch prediction? What are your numbers then? Yeah RAM is farther out then the local caches, but the CPU is also not completely ignorant of what it has to do next.

Closely related but unfamiliar to most software geeks, Bldy's work in the 1960s and later on the theoretical limits of operation throughput when using cache hierarchies is very relevant to high-performance software design. The theory generalizes nicely to any topology where you can control how access latencies are distributed, and carefully designed software can get relatively close to the throughput limits (though it is somewhat incompatible with the way most software engineers design systems these days e.g. multithreaded concurrency is a non-starter).

> At this point some of you may argue that the whole idea of Big-O analysis is to abstract architectural details such as memory latency. This is correct - but I argue that O(1) is the wrong abstraction.

No, your model is wrong. Others have already pointed out some issues with the author's understanding of Big-O notation. However, this is a fundamental misunderstanding. Big-O is a tool to analyse some function's asymptotic behaviour, i.e., how it behaves when the input parameter grows versus infinity. You have to put your model of cost into that function. If your measure is time, and memory access doesn't take constant time in your model, then you have to account for that in your cost function. You can just as well use Big-O notation to describe the asymptotic space complexity of an algorithm (how much memory does it need?). O(1) has no special meaning - it's just the set of all unary functions whose value stays below a constant, no matter how large their input parameter gets.

The author is literally blaming his tools for his own misunderstandings.

Thanks to the prefetcher a low-entropy access to memory, like reading the next value in an array, will tend to happen in constant time.

The author argues that a random access to memory is not O(1) but instead O(root N) because of distance.

The easy reactive response is that with respect to algorithm design the size of RAM, N, is a constant.

On the other hand for very high scaling factors, as input size rises the size of RAM must also rise. In this way N can be thought of as a variable and that seems to be what the author is thinking. Different algorithms will behave differently as they are scaled to infinity and beyond.

I think the author's argument is interesting but maybe it's better to make new models for time complexity analysis. I think Bob Harper's students have done good work on this.

In addition to distance there is also the cost of selection, namely the muxes and decoders, which would multiply the cost of access by log N.

What the graph really seems to indicate is that time is only linear when working within a cache size on the author's computer (remember that iterating a linked list accounts for the gradual increase in between the cache jumps). If the theoretical upper bound of RAM access was really the important factor at this scale, I wouldn't expect it to be almost flat and to suddenly jerk up every time we have to go to the next cache.

Assuming the author's O(sqrt(n)) is correct, it seems only relevant on much, much larger scales.

In light of that, it really doesn't make sense to pollute the typical use of Big O notation. It should always be understood to be just one metric to understand an algorithm.

I am sorry... but no, the article is interesting and well written, but it has nothing to do with big O notation.Random access in memory is still in O(1), it doesn't depend on the size of the data structure (I am assuming that is the "n" the author talk about by pretending that a memory access is O(sqrt(n)).Even if you have a very complex memory architecture with 15 caching levels, spread all over the world, if you have a maximum of 5 day delay for accessing your memory through the mail, it will still be O(1), because 5 day is constant, it does not depend on the size of the data structure.

The "n" the author is really talking about may be the depth of the cache hierarchy.

I think this way of looking at the problem is misleading. O(1) or O(N) always stays O(1) or O(N), just the constant changes. You can always access any element in RAM (on a SSD, HDD) in a bounded amount of time. Use that pessimistic time as the time of one step.

Viewed in this way, O(N) is still O(N), and a processor with caches is a magic device that somehow computes faster than O(N)... or for O(1) computes in sub-constant time (if that can be even well-defined).

Just by simply looking at his sloppy graph (Typical origin-shenanigans are often a dead give away for the quality of an examination.) one should be able to recognize the form of an underlying step function, as expected from a multi-layered memory system (L1,L2,L3,RAM, ...) .

But NO, he envisions a Square-Root function, just by arbitrarly placing a line in a logarithmic coordinate system. WTF?! Where is the fitting? And how does he defend his conclusion? drum-roll QUANTUM MECHANICS .... Muhahahaha! Great show!

If I understood it correctly, the author links cache miss from memory subsystem hierarchy to asymptotic complexity (big O), so if an operation for fixing a cache miss takes higher time complexity, he takes that instead of O(1).

Similar happens when you write an O(1) algorithm while relying on malloc(), which is usually O(n log n), thus your algorithm is not really O(1), but O(n log n).

I think there is a key point in the FAQ (article four, all linked through the series):

> You are conflating Big-O with memory hierarchies

> No, Im applying Big-O to memory hierarchies. Big-O is a tool, and I am applying it to analyze the latency of memory accesses based on the amount of memory you are using.

As some others have pointed out, the line is crossing hierarchies of cache, and that he is not looking at the big O of instructions. Both of these are accurate, and the author is aware of this.

He is using the tool of big O analysis to measure a performance characteristic. That characteristic is not the traditional number of instructions or amount of memory utilized in the computation of an algorithm. It is the latency for access to a random piece of data stored on a system.

There are two cases considered, the practical, and the theoretical.

At the practical level, we do not have a unified physical implementation of the address space in a modern computer. This means that accessing a random address in memory is an action that will most likely cross levels of the cache hierarchy. It is well known that there are order of magnitude jumps crossing these levels. Perhaps it is uninteresting to you, and the importance of cache locality in an algorithm is something that you already have a very strong handle on. That makes his observation of time-to-access a random address trivial, but not wrong.

Big O tells us that a binary search is the most efficient search algorithm for an array (constraint - the array must be sorted), but in practice a linear search with a sentinel value across an unsorted array will be faster if the array fits in cache. Keeping in mind the big O latency of random memory access across cache hierarchy levels would be the theoretical analysis to tell us this. The traditional big O looks at number of instructions. These are both valid tools in choosing an optimal algorithm.

The second point the author makes is the theoretical limit. Assume the ideal storage medium with minimum access latency and maximum information density. This storage medium is matter. The limit of packing is the point at which you would create a black hole.

With this ideal storage medium, you cannot pack an infinite amount of data within a distance that can be traversed at the speed of light within one clock cycle. For this colossal storage array, there are some addresses which cannot be physically reached by a signal moving at the speed of light within the amount of time that a single clock cycle (or single instruction) takes. Accessing a random address is not a constant time operation, though the instruction can be dispatched in a constant time. There is a variable time for the result of that instruction to return to the processor.

At this theoretical limit, we would still end up with a cache hierarchy, though it would be 100% logical. With a single storage medium and unified address space, the cache hierarchy would be determined by physical distance from CPU to physical memory location. Those storage cells (whatever form they take) that can be round-tripped by a speed of light signal in one clock cycle are the first level of cache, and so on. You could have very granular, number-of-clock-cycles cache levels stepping by one at each concentric layer of the sphere, or you could bucket the number of clock cycles. Either would effectively act as a cache.

This theoretical exercise is an extreme limit, but bears out the practical implications that our current physical implementations of cache hierarchy exhibits in practice.

Again, perhaps these observations are trivial, but I believe they do stand up to scrutiny. The key insight is that the performance characteristic being described by big O is time, not the more traditional space or number of instructions.

I think time is a valuable metric in terms of algorithm selection. If we think about end users - they don't care that one instruction or 1,000,000,000 are being executed. They care about how quickly work is done for them by the computer. Instruction-based analysis can be a huge help in this consideration, but so can time-based analysis.

Neither should be ignored, and neither invalidates the other.

It's a very interesting experiment/conclusion, but it rests upon one assumption: The assumption that the entire dataset has been preloaded into the L1/L2/L3 caches.

This assumption is a shaky one to make, and is easily violated. Imagine if you have a hashmap that is small enough to fit entirely in L3 cache. However, most of it has been evicted from the L1/L2 caches, by other data that the core has been reading/writing to as well. Eventually, the thread returns to the hashmap and performs a single lookup on it. In this scenario, the time required will indeed be O(1).

So what you really have is a best-case-complexity of O(sqrt(N)), if your data has been preloaded in the closest possible caches, and a worst-case-complexity of O(1) if your data is stuck in an outer level cache/DRAM. Given that we usually care more about the worst-case-scenarios, not the best-case-scenario, using the O(1) time complexity seems like a reasonable choice.

Going back to the author's premise that the time-complexity of a single memory access is O(sqrt(N)), not O(1), this is true only where N represents all/most of the dataset being processed. If N represents only a small fraction of the dataset being processed, and your caches are going to be mostly filled with other unrelated data, then the time complexity is closer to O(1).

Clearly the O(sqrt(N)) is more accurate than O(1) under some circumstances, but even so, it's not clear what benefit this accuracy confers. All models are inaccurate simplifications of reality, but simple-inaccurate models can still be useful if they can help in decision-making. Big-O analysis isn't used to estimate the practical running-time of an application. For that, you'd be better off just running the thing. Big-O analysis is more used to compare and decide between different competing algorithms/data-structures. And in that sense, whether you choose to model linked-lists/binary-search/hash-maps as O(Nsqrt(N))/O(log(N)sqrt(N))/O(sqrt(N)), or O(N)/O(logN)/O(1), the recommendation you end up with is the same.

If you instead iterate through an array of size K you will only pay O(N + K) since it's only the first memory access that's random. Re-iterating over it will cost O(K). This teaches us an even more important lesson: If you plan to iterate through it, use an array.

This is rubbish. Re-iterating it is the same as iterating it the first time: if you array doesn't fit into cache, you're going to pay for pulling it from further out into the memory hierarchy.

To anyone who doubts me: try it. Try iterating an array that fits entirely in L1 many times, then do the same with an array that has to be pushed out to swap. The slowdown will be considerably worse than linear.

The library example is a bad one, since it leads to O(N) and not O(N), a conclusion that contradicts the thesis.

"In general, the amount of books N that fits in a library is proportional to the square of the radius r of the library, and we write N r."

No, the number of books N is proportional to the area of the front face of the shelving, not the area enclosed within the circle. Assuming all libraries are the same height, that means N is proportional to the circumference of the circle, which is proportional to r, not r. Meanwhile, assuming that all books are reachable in the same amount of time by the librarian no matter their height on the shelf, that means T r (as before). Since T r and N r, that means T N or T=O(N).

For example processing 100GB of data actually don't have to be O(nsqrt(n)) because if you process it on cluster, then other machines are also using L1, L2, L3 caches and RAM. Then the whole process can be streamlined which means that some operations can be faster than the pessimistic nsqrt(n).

What Apple, Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and most other big US company do is the so called "double Irish"[1]. Essentially is a clever way of using two quirks of some EU countries loopholes in tax laws, from treating IP licensing fees (of course the brand and intellectual IP is owned by a British virgin island tax haven, where else could this stuff be created/invented), and the net result is that Apple et al end up paying single digit cents on the dollar in EU profits.

And with another quirk - this time in US tax laws - the do not even have to pay taxed in the US on those earnings, as they have not repatriated the funds.

How to pay dividends/fund buybacks, without repatriating those funds? Easy: Just issue debt (which your own subsidiary in the British Virgin islands making a killing on IP licensing might want to buy) or have your BVI IP trust fund buy those shares.

Now why would other EU countries let Ireland and the Netherlands get away with these accepted loopholes is a mystery to me, especially since Ireland had to ask for a bailout lifeline, and was in no position to negotiate firmly.

Why the US would allow their truffle pigs to not pay taxes on oversea earnings is clearly the result of expert lobbying.

Competing on tax rates and negotiating tax deals were a huge MNC like Apple pays a ridiculous 0.005% is bad: morally wrong, cuts to public services, increases unjustifiable economic inequality and is just not fair on other much smaller firms who have to pay full whack on the tax.

Apple, FBK, etc don't see it like that - they will engage in aggressive tax planning to minimise their tax, hoarding billions of dollars. And its not like they do anything productive with their cash pile; its not like it goes to higher pay checks for their Asian workers. Instead, its spent on share buybacks to prop up sagging share prices and keep Wall St happy.

Here's a better approach: tax companies on their profits and remove or reduce income tax and capital gains tax. This aligns incentives to:

1. encourage and reward founders to start new business

2. the most valuable employees tend to be mobile ones - a core EU principle is free movement so compete for the best employees by lowering taxes and giving them great public services. Companies will follow.

3. tax company profits and everyone is on the same level playing field: provides an incentive for companies to reinvest their profits into growth (and indirectly jobs).

Instead of charging Irish tax for all income for the company, they charged what was reported in Ireland.

They're playing the carrot and stick game that governments like us all to play.

If true, this means that they did the right thing that the best-informed legal minds could offer in order to legally avoid taxes. It worked for a while then suddenly the rules changed. And they changed not just for the future, but retroactively.

What occurred to cause a rules change? It wasn't the law. It wasn't Apple's behavior. It became a story in the U.S. about how companies are getting away without paying their "fair share". The EC was the one that acted, and the only thing that makes sense to me is that the EC saw an opportunity and appointed a commission. Not arbitration, not a criminal or civil trial. A commission.

Quite frankly, this looks like a stick-up. Apple's a big company and can take care of itself. I really hope that the same kind of thing doesn't happen to mid-sized and smaller companies trying to eek it out in the EU. It's not just bad for the companies involved: it's bad for the reputation of the union as a whole. You can't keep changing the rules up if you're trying to tweak regulatory issues to promote long-term growth. Nobody with any sense is going to trust you.

So, if I understand correctly, EC's argument hinges on the idea that Ireland gave "special favors" to Apple in terms of the tax deal. In particular, that Ireland offered things which nearly all other companies were not. If that is not the case (IE, if it can be proved apple received no special treatment), then the conclusions of the case, and the penalty, are false.

US corporate profits as a percent of GDP are near their all-time highs. Take a look at this historical plot:

https://fred.stlouisfed.org/graph/fredgraph.png?g=6ThF

I wonder how much of that is due to tax avoidance, whether legal or "unexpectedly illegal" (as in Apple's case).

If governments around the world follow the lead of the EC, I would expect a noticeable decline in corporate profitability over the next five to 10 years.

Note: I just generated the plot above as a png at the St. Louis Fed's FRED website, and I don't know how long the image will remain available. To recreate it, plot the "Corporate Profits, Adjusted" series divided by the "Gross Domestic Product" series, using the same units for both series (e.g., nominal billions).

The more I read about this the more likely I think this decision could be appealed and overturned.

The initial implication is that Apple specially negotiated a lower tax rate for itself in Ireland. But if you read through the European Commission press release[1], it's not that a special rate was negotiated, but rather Apple Sales International (the Irish Subsidiary) only pays Irish income tax on the portion of its income that comes from within Ireland, which is correct according to Irish tax law. But there's nothing particularly special about this setup that applies only to Apple, and from what I can tell, any other corporation operating in Ireland could have also set up this arrangement and is subject to the same rules.

It doesn't make sense to me that the EU can compel Ireland to collect more taxes from Apple, if according to Irish tax law, they've already paid what they owe for Irish sales, and they don't owe taxes for non-Irish sales. Now, there is a separate question, which is can/should every other EU country go after Apple's local subsidiaries for failing to pay sufficient income tax in their own countries (by transferring the profits over to Ireland)? The answer to that is probably yes. If Apple sells an iPhone in Italy for a profit, it should pay Italian taxes on those profits, and should not be able to avoid Italian taxes by booking the profit in Ireland. This is touched upon in the press release:

> The amount of unpaid taxes to be recovered by the Irish authorities would be reduced if other countries were to require Apple to pay more taxes on the profits recorded by Apple Sales International and Apple Operations Europe for this period. This could be the case if they consider, in view of the information revealed through the Commissions investigation, that Apple's commercial risks, sales and other activities should have been recorded in their jurisdictions. This is because the taxable profits of Apple Sales International in Ireland would be reduced if profits were recorded and taxed in other countries instead of being recorded in Ireland.

It seems more logical to me to conclude that that Apple doesn't owe more taxes to Ireland, instead they owe more taxes to all the other countries in the world where they operate but have avoided taxes by transferring their profits into Ireland.

I don't see why commentators here are so divided, presuming they are not beneficiaries of this system.

The government gets revenue from taxes to provide services. If everyone were to do what Ireland is doing then goverments either have to raise money by increasing other taxes or reducing services.

Either way individuals and society lose. Nobody wins from this race to the bottom.

The bigger question is the presence of these convenient loopholes in the global financial system that benefit the wealthy and privileged but leave everyone else facing clear cut laws that cannot be evaded without serious consequences.

Questioning the legitimacy of taxes, or even society, and getting pedantic about laws in this context seems little more than a self serving tactic to avoid admitting this is obviously wrong. Especially when everyone else without exception is paying their fair share. Here is a better idea, pay your share and then start a debate about taxes and society if you want.

Here's how to fix this:

1. Foreign deductions are taxed based on the difference between the locale where the earnings are made and the locale the service/product is provided from. Where the sales division is located has no relevance to taxability, and deductions for sales costs are treated as any other internal service.

2. IP is enforced on the national level, and should not be eligible as a foreign deduction. Good-will also follows the local market.

3. Documentation should be provided that foreign costs are real, and that they are actually taxed. Tax agreements should be null and void if systematic abuse is uncovered.

The problem right now is that no company can compete against these cheats.

Personally, I think Ireland has scammed the rest of Europe for long enough by now.

Likewise, I wouldn't be surprised if a large part of India's competitiveness in asses-in-seats outsourcing is created by artificial tax rule phenomena - and various constructs to exploit these.

I am not too sure how I feel about this. On the one hand I do think Apple (and many other companies) should pay more taxes.

However on the other hand Ireland enticed many big companies to their country on the promise of lower tax. You can't blame Apple for taking advantage of such an offer. They followed the letter of the [Irish] law as far as I can tell (unless someone can correct me?).

I think this could end up being terrible for Ireland in the longer term. Then again perhaps the EU knows that they can't really go anywhere else now so will just have to put up with the new rates or not do business?

It is far from a cut and dry situation IMHO.

The EU needs to worry about Africa soon scarfing up companies looking for a way out.

Then last of all, they are fooling themselves if they don't think EU based companies aren't receiving similar deals. This seems concentrated only on US based companies for the time being.

Cucumber grading has been automated for years. Look on YouTube for automated cucumber grading systems.[1][2] There are many competing vendors. The commercial machines process their video locally and don't need "the cloud". They're also much faster.

Fruit and vegetable sorting using computer vision is routine. That's why commercial produce is so consistent - it's been pre-sorted. The existing technologies are so fast that it's routine to inspect and sort peas, and possible to sort grains of rice.

Most of the cost and complexity in the commercial machines is in the material handling. There are conveyors and devices to get the individual items lined up.Cleaning and washing stations are usually part of the line. Commercial machines have to be built sturdily so they survive continuous use, and have to be cleanable with high-pressure soapy water. The little unit that does machine vision is a minor part of the processing line.

AI techniques are routinely used. Support vector machines are popular. One Indian system uses fuzzy logic. ANNs have been tried but are not yet popular.

The systems generally measure user-defined features - length, width, curvature, color, flaws - which then go into a simple grading algorithm. They're not trying to match human decisions.

While it's a cool concept and agriculture is ripe for technology disruption, the enterprise software product marketer in me finds it to be a calculated marketing stunt, if not an disingenuous one.

TensorFlow is, in no way shape or form, ready to be used by anyone but very technical people with a solid knowledge of both software engineering and machine learning. In fact, it's probably unfair to single out TensorFlow because every deep learning toolkit I have seen is still in the same "extremely early adopter" phase. Yet, this article makes it seem like a line of business user (farmer) with some background in technology (former embedded systems engineer) can use deep learning to transform his/her business -when, in reality, much expert help is needed to make it work. In other words, it would have been a lot more plausible/genuine if the article read like:

1. A progressive farmer got in touch with Google.

2. Google dispatched their solutions architect to work with them.

3. Hey, a cool, early prototype is working!

I am not trying to be a hater. Deep learning has huge potential, and Google, among others, is doing a lot to make it accessible. That said, this type of over-promising ahead of market reality is what gives cutting edge technology a bad name.

tl;dr: With a training dataset of over 7000 images, the system is incapable of performing the cucumber sorting task on live data with greater than 70% accuracy - likely do to over fitting on the "small" training set (where it shows 95% accuracy). Also, it is currently incapable of taking into account a number of the existing variables used for sorting.

If one were to leverage the power of a supercomputer trained with tens of thousands more observations - all meticulously hand categorized - it would probably get better.

Truly, we are only limited by our imaginations.

clickok 1 ago 1 reply      
At first the headline made me skeptical because I expected it to be one of those clickbait articles where someone deploys excessive firepower solving a trivial problem.However! It turns out that cucumber sorting is well-suited to deep learning: a) there is enough interest to generate a reasonably-sized data set, and b) It is one of those difficult "I'll know it when I see it" classification/evaluation problems.

However, as soon as they described the actual solution I felt somewhat let down.

1. Reducing the input to 80x80 images is likely unnecessary; it removes some of the most important features (number of thorns, blemishes) from contention.If the issue is computational cost (and therefore training time) you might consider using cloud GPUs.However, a network with multiple "towers" (like Google's Inception model) could conceivably allow for evaluating the sorts of aspects that require higher resolution relatively cheaply (one-or-two convolutional layers with pooling and then a fully connected layer) along one pathway, while a different tower (with more layers or more units per layer) processes the resized images.

2. If the network used was just a modification of the MNIST one, then it seems like it ignores the ordinal nature of the problem. If cucumber quality can be ordered, why not use a regression model instead (or maybe regression along multiple criteria, like straightness, bumpiness, thickness, etc.) instead of treating each class as if they were completely separate?

3. Why not release the dataset? I have GPUs, the necessary background, and a few hours to try out some models. I also have a heretofore unrecognized yen to use my models to generate images of the ideal Japanese cucumber, so I'd be willing to do it for free.

These have a fairly simple fix that you can implement yourself as a developer. Don't let your services listen on (AKA bind to) 0.0.0.0 or 127.0.0.1.

The entire 127.0.0.0/8 block is dedicated to the loopback interface [1]. That's 2^24 - 2 unique IP addresses you can choose at random. This basically eliminates the feasibility of the DNS rebinding component, as it would take prohibitively long to find the actual loopback address that your services have bound to.

It's important to note that this is much more effective than not using the default port. It's much faster to iterate all 2^16 ports on the same IP address than it is to wait for DNS TTL to expire so you can rebind to another IP address.

As a bonus, you don't have to worry about port collisions when nobody's allowed to listen on 0.0.0.0. Everybody can use 8080 if they want.

In a past life I had to write some DNS rebind attacks for some CPE testsuite software that is out there.

It was very easy to write some javascript that hangs out in the browser, gets the updated DNS host as the 192.168.0.1 address (sure sure, you can go crazy guessing other addresses) and then about 60% of everyone was on admin:admin or something as common; the first 12 or so bits of an ethernet address are the vendor identifier, which makes the process even easier to assume. Then you just start posting data to well-known web admin interfaces and update the router password.

I have no idea how well this works, three or four years later...

I'm sorry, but I disagree. A browser allowing externally loaded scripts to access private ip ranges is not a reasonable decision.

Browsers could pin DNS responses when a page finishes loading so any further requests for that domain will use the cached IP instead of doing name lookups but that would be a PITA because they generally rely on the OS DNS subsystem. It might also break long-running pages that won't failover anymore.

It would probably be easier to simply keep a IS_LOOPBACK flag for every DNS name resolved and kill any connection attempts if the flag changes while the page is loaded. Then you can keep using the OS DNS resolver logic.

DNS might legitimately return a different CDN but it sure as hell won't flip between private IP spaces and the public internet.

Do developers often run things on localhost? I mean sure, you'll have things running on your dev machine, but for me at least, http://127.0.0.1/ will just show the default webroot, with its placeholder index.html. All my actual sites listen for custom hostnames (since otherwise you only get one site per machine or have to do silly things with port numbers on the url).

So unless somebody has crafted a page specifically targeting me and my naming convention for local sites, this wouldn't be an issue. And of course, once you hit a site, you'd still need to deal with the same security that the public facing version sees. You certainly wouldn't go out of your way to disable that on your local machine.

Databases are named, and often live within named database server instances, so they'd need to be specifically targeted as well. And, again, they have authorization to deal with. It's not like you'd leave that open either.

Is it common to do it any other way?

This is an interesting, albeit well-known attack vector. A similar attack was used to attack Avast [0].

The author notes that write access could be used to inject dangerous objects (e.g. malicious pickles) into the database. This is arguably a much more serious bug because it does not require DNS rebinding (such a request can be performed cross-origin) nor can it be mitigated by refusing to read the response (as Chrome is proposing to do).

In short: the database modification attack is potentially much more severe, but as of yet no precise attack chain has been identified. However, I think it's very likely that some server software uses e.g. pickles in the database.

I've become increasingly complacent and often allow NoScript to "temporarily allow all javascript on this page", but will stop doing it, having just tried the PoC. It found Redis (which runs in a container, but with the port exposed).

The PoC failed to work when using TorBrowser (with the security slider set to High) and letting NoScript temporarily allow.

The crazy thing to me is that people here look for solutions at lower OSI level (DNS, interfaces, IP address,) where to me the problem is that there are these services that run with zero security.

Fix the services, require authentication and permission enforcement and the problem is gone.

Hmm, Little Snitch, if configured properly (ie. you allow the browser to only connect to ports 80 and 443) will alert you if a site wants to connect to something weird like 3306, 9000 etc. Then you can kill the packet and nothing happens. Like on OPs PoC. Still, it's super interesting PoC.

With WebRTC local ip discovery [1] it can be easily extended to work against a whole local subnet. Looks very dangerous.

Probably best to attack this on the DNS rebind level. Encapsulating the browser network context somehow and firewalling this might help mitigating this attack too.

The DNS rebind seems weird, any sensible DNS forwarder should ignore local ip (127.0.01/8, 192.168.0.1, etc). This attack doesn't seem feasible if you can't hinack local adresses.

This problem doesn't just apply to localhost, although it's most straightfoward to exploit that way. You could also use this technique to scan the user's LAN or, in a more targeted attack, bypass IP address restrictions on specific servers.

Scripts from the public Internet shouldn't be able to access private or local networks as a matter of policy.

Similarly, in a high-security environment, scripts from a private network shouldn't be able to access the public Internet - to help prevent exfiltration of private data.

Rclone: rsync for cloud storage rclone.org

Looks really good. I am pleased more projects are adding Google Cloud Drive support now. What I really want to do is:

- create documents on my Mac which autosync to Cloud Drive in encrypted format (this should tick that box)

- be able to access said documents on any device including iOS, which transparently handles the encryption

The use case is I now scan all my documents into PDF format, but keeping them secure and accessing them on iOS seem to be almost mutually exclusive.

I looked at some other solutions for this which had their own iOS app and security mechanism (Boxcryptor mainly) and I didn't like it - I just didn't feel in control. And I got nervous about what happens if Boxcryptor goes under; I don't want to rely on them keeping their app up-to-date to read my documents.

I know Apple will never allow it but wouldn't it be nice to be able to mount your own network drive which all apps could access.

Aside from the program itself, your documentation is really good, and special +1 for documenting the crypto thoroughly (and another +1 for using NaCl's building blocks in a safe way).

As a related point, I recently bought a Chromebook (still unopened), which pushes you heavily towards storing your files in Google Drive. It makes me uneasy to store certain things unencrypted, so I'll investigate writing a compatible implementation for ChromeOS.

Rclone is great. I wrote an integration to use it with git-annex (https://github.com/DanielDent/git-annex-remote-rclone).

Some of the supported providers (e.g. Amazon Cloud Drive) have a reputation for days-long service outages. Some users of Amazon Cloud Drive have even reported files going missing on occasion.

But the great thing with git-annex is you can have your data on multiple clouds (in addition to being on your own equipment), so partial or complete loss of a cloud provider does not need to result in availability or durability issues.

At the time I wrote it, I only needed to work with AWS, and needed something very fast to copy huge amounts of data. It works like a champ, but I do think about what it would take to make it cloud-independent; it wouldn't be easy to maintain the performance that's for sure.

I'm not sure that syncing to cloud is really the best for most personal users, at least not anymore. If you have multiple devices and use SyncThing / etc to sync between them, you're protected against device loss and damage without having to put your personal files on a server controlled by someone other than yourself.

I was about to install it anyway, but I saw that it doesn't have bi-directional sync. If 3 people at work shared a google drive folder and they all tried to sync to it, it sounds like whoever synced last would always win and it could potentially delete / alter some file.

This looks awesome. I've made several attempts at something that could write encrypted files with obfuscated file names to several backends but never ended up with something I was happy with.

I'll definitely give this a try.

Edit: One feature I would like would be to split files into n chunks to obfuscate the length of files (assuming it wasn't obvious which chunks go together to make up a file), so instead of a 1:1 relationship there was a 1:n for large files. I suspect this is a lot more work though...

Looks promising, but I'm not sure about the crypto-part. Can someone give some notes about the security of NaCl Secretbox using Poly1305 as authenticator and XSalsa20 for encryption?

Is it justified to assume that this is adequate crypto as long as the nonces are choosen correctly (= as random as possible) and the keysize is bigger than 128bit (rclone uses 256bit key derived from user password)?

Documentation of the crypto part can be found here: http://rclone.org/crypt/

Willy Wonka (screenplay by the genius Roald Dahl) has one of my favorite scenes in film and I invite you all to watch it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sz9jc5blzRM

> In 1970, when originally offered the lead role in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory by director Mel Stuart, the great Gene Wilder accepted on one condition. "When I make my first entrance, he explained, I'd like to come out of the door carrying a cane and then walk toward the crowd with a limp. After the crowd sees Willy Wonka is a cripple, they all whisper to themselves and then become deathly quiet. As I walk toward them, my cane sinks into one of the cobblestones I'm walking on and stands straight up, by itself; but I keep on walking, until I realize that I no longer have my cane. I start to fall forward, and just before I hit the ground, I do a beautiful forward somersault and bounce back up, to great applause." Asked why, Wilder said, "Because from that time on, no one will know if I'm lying or telling the truth."

My favorite scene, and it's an absolute masterclass in comedic technique, is from Woody Allen's Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex. The moment his Greek patient confesses: "Doctor, I'm in love with a sheep!" Without saying a single word, Wilder's expression goes from jesting to confusion to amusement to fright to intrigue and back again through the entire gamut of possible human response. He sputters and strains. It's all right there on his face! We feel the tortured struggle occurring within his mind, grasping for any semblance of assessing the situation and formulating the appropriate thing to say. It's truth is it's genius!

As a Gene Wilder fan I was once digging for things to watch on Amazon and stumbled on a documentary narrated by Gene Wilder. I wouldn't have even noticed it but when I saw his name He'd been out of the limelight for so long I thought "wow, what could have made him agree to do this?" So I watched it.

I can't recommend it enough. It's called "EXPO - Magic of the White City" and is as about the 1893 Chicago Exposition. It takes about 10 minutes to really get started and it's got some cheesy stuff but it was fascinating. I've shown it to several people and they all got sucked in.

Not sure if this is a legit upload but it's on YouTubehttps://m.youtube.com/watch?v=cpOQE5KJJds Or Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Expo-Magic-White-Gene-Wilder/dp/B004S...

Metacomment: As I've gradually shifted from reading, listening, or watching news, which I increasingly find almost wholly irrelevant, if not downright insulting, to expose myself to, I'm relying on curated sources, and HN in particular, to a larger degree.

So this is the first I'd heard the news, some 13 hours after posting as I write.

One thought that occurs is that HN has something rather good going on, in its incentives, audience, financing (HN isn't a revenue center, but does feed awareness of YC), and resulting informational production. Developing it further might be of interest, or finding a way to tap into it to produce a higher-quality "what's happening of significance in the world" product (feeds and filters off of HN already exist, e.g., the HN subreddit, basRSS).

And a substantial part of that is the culture that's been specifically cultivated. Researching the issue of trolling online, I happened across a post from nearly two weeks ago (which I'd missed in first appearance) on Time magazine's "how trolls are ruining the Internet" article. HN admin and mod dang offered a rebuke to an uncharitably rude comment, in this thread: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=12322114

The context for that was my experiences in the past week in a new community which turns out to be quite centrally founded on the principle of pervasive anonymity. An interesting premise, but difficult to get right. My venture there didn't go well: https://www.reddit.com/r/dredmorbius/comments/500ysb/the_imz...

There's also the premise that news itself is often simply unproductive and unhealthy, and its different formats, particularly television/video, but also radio and print, have some fairly deep psychological influences, despite the fact that individual stories often have little personal impact -- we can neither do much about them, nor they to us. This isn't always the case, but the factors that do make news matter, relevance, context, background, and an exposing of the powers and reasons behind events, is rarely part of the modern product, which emphasises shock, reaction, outrage, and distraction. Not only mainstream commercial television, but the "better" sources -- BBC, CBC, NPR, PBS, The New York Times, Telegraph, and Guardian.

https://www.theguardian.com/media/2013/apr/12/news-is-bad-ro...

I receive a local paper. I'll listen briefly to headlines. I occasionally read news sites directly online. But whether it's me or the media, something seems changed, and relevance is largely missing.

Just to give an example, the local paper where I'm visiting carried a story this morning about an "artificial leaf" development by a university research team. The story ran a half page, from a news service billing itself as ecological news -- one of the many wire-service pieces that fills what's left of the business section of the paper on Mondays. Hoping for an explanation of the design, mechansim, or product, in that half page, there was one sentence revealing anyof this, and I quote:

Heres how it works: The energy of the sun rearranges the chemical bonds of the carbon dioxide.

Read it for yourself: http://www.chicagotribune.com/bluesky/originals/ct-uic-artif...

Literally the entire remainder of the article was noninformational filler. A paragraph or two of which on why synfuels-based energy storage is useful, I can understand. But ... this isn't even pretending to inform.

(There's a Science article which reveals slightly more: http://science.sciencemag.org/content/353/6298/467)

The remainder of the paper is similarly loaded with anti-information. A brief news roundup buried in the back of the first section contains what little actual news is present, again largely wire articles. There's perhaps a well-written article every week or two. Op-eds are occasionally, though rarely, considered. A friend characterises the columnists as largely writing about themselves or to each other. And yes, this is the same Tronc product John Oliver lampooned, with absolute justification, consummate skill, and delightful effect, on HBO a few weeks back.

Oliver's right: the media business environment stinks. But Tronc have stopped even trying.

So: HN, an intelligent audience, a diversity of views, a fostering of civility, even in disagreement, principled readership, and quite frankly a really boring design asthetic, are all soft-power influences shaping a quite useful information stream.

Thoughts kicked up by seeing this headline in the story list.

And yes, beyond that, I'll miss Wilder, a gentle but brave comic genius of our age.

Theory here is that people will build apps that talk to S3. But sometimes those apps might need to run inside the perimeter and can't talk to the cloud. So rather than rewrite an app to talk to a new internal datastore, you just point it at a locally hosted Minio and you're up and running.

I'm asking because if one could set up a resilient online (online as in available) storage with fat pipes like this it could be used as a platform to build a centralized video hub for editing. It's another question how much sense would it make over a filesystem though.

Unrelated question. What's the point of fullscreen button on those term session players (or whatever they are) if it doesn't stretch the playback to fullscreen? You only get a same-sized screen with black around it. It's not even centered to the screen.

Is this just meant to emulate S3 for the sake of dev/test environments? Without clustering/HA I don't really see the point of using this over the plain old file system. Or am I missing something?

Numeric | https://www.numeric.com | Full time | Onsite | Boston, MA

Managing $19.7 billion of other people's money presents interesting technology challenges. At Numeric, we're looking for Python people to help build, test and deploy the whole trading pipeline.

If you have experience in building systematic trading systems, or if you're interested in learning, we'd love to hear from you. We do friendly code review for knowledge sharing, and we also support staff in getting qualifications.

We have all the benefits of being an established, successful hedge fund but the developer team is still small enough to do a single standup in the morning. We have the best of both worlds.

Interested? Drop me an email at wilfred.hughes@man.com, and mention HN.

WalmartLabs | Portland, Oregon | iOS Engineer | Onsite - Relocation Expenses Provided | $100k-160k + bonus + stock

I'm an architect at WalmartLabs and am looking for a few good iOS engineers to help us build our iPhone app. If working at scale in a small, startup-like environment gets you out of bed in the morning, you'll probably enjoy this gig - we're one of the most downloaded apps of all time, and we serve tens of millions of users a month.

If you're a good fit, we'll make it work for you.

I'll post to this thread because this is very relevant for the hiring companies. Hunter and Schmidt did a meta-study of 85 years of research on hiring criteria. [1]

There are three attributes you need to select for to identify performing employees in intellectual fields.

 - General mental ability (Are they generally smart) Use WAIS or if there are artifacts of GMA(Complex work they've done themselves) available use them as proxies. Using IQ is mostly illegal[2] in the US, so you'll have to find a test that acts as a good proxy. - Work sample test. NOT HAZING! As close as possible to the actual work they'd be doing. Try to make it apples-to-apples comparison across candidates. Also, try and make accomidations for candidates not knowing your company shibboleth. - Integrity. The first two won't matter if you hire a sociopath. There are existing tests available for this, you can purchase for < $50 per use.
This alone will get you > 65% hit rate [1], and can be done inside of three hours. There's no need for day long (or multi-day) gladiator style gauntlets.

[1] http://mavweb.mnsu.edu/howard/Schmidt%20and%20Hunter%201998%...

[2] The illegality comes from IQ tests disadvantaging certain minority groups.

Credit Karma | San Francisco | Full Time, Onsite

Credit Karma's mission is to make financial progress possible for everyone. We have over 60 million US members and are a true mission-oriented business, a rare case where our incentives are aligned with our users - we succeed by helping our members attain financial progress.

We've been growing rapidly over the past few years (hypergrowth) and are hiring across a wide range of positions. On the backend side, we are moving to Scala-based microservices using finagle and Thrift, and as well as GraphQL on node.js. Our native iOS and Android apps are #1 in finance (with a 5 star rating on the App Store) and we're rebuilding our website in React + Redux. Our data science team uses Kafka, Spark and BigQuery among other technologies.

If you're motivated by growth and impact Credit Karma is probably the best place to work in tech today. We have solved product / market fit and distribution, but compared to our peer unicorns there is still so much work to do. If you look at the gap between our product today and what we are well-positioned to become - the main touchpoint for consumer finance - there is tons of opportunity for people joining now to take on responsibility and ownership and have a meaningful impact.

Monzo | Backend Engineer | Full time | London or Remote | https://monzo.com/

At Monzo we aim to build the best current account in the world. We are always keen to hear from capable, creative engineers who want to help us accomplish that goal.

Were still a relatively small company with only 10 people in the backend engineering team and 50 people in total. This means you will need to wear many hats in the beginning but it also means there are many interesting challenges ahead that you can specialise in if you like. Broadly, the work were doing covers these areas:

* Distributed platform: We aim to be the first bank without a single point of failure

* Banking and payments: We write code that moves money

* Product engineering: We help our customers by hiding the boring parts of money management

* Financial crime: We need to stay ahead of criminals trying to steal data and money

* Internal tooling: We automate everything so the rest of the team can work smarter

Our backend architecture is composed of hundreds of distributed Go microservices running in the cloud. They are managed by Kubernetes, store data in Cassandra, do RPC with linkerd/Finagle, and use Kafka for asynchronous queueing.

Lots more detail is on our website : https://boards.greenhouse.io/mondo/jobs/244898

Crossfield Digital | New York, NY | full-time or contract, remote | http://www.crossfield.com

We build websites and mobile apps for the sports industry. We're currently working on a variety of interesting and high-profile projects utilizing the latest real-time technology.

We're seeking a front end (CSS, JS) specialist to augment our small, multi-disciplinary team of developers (with a focus on Rails). Looking for someone who loves building responsive/adaptive websites that look great at any screen size. You should be self-motivated and confident in your ability to complete projects without daily guidance (we're always on Slack but don't have daily meetings, and count on everyone to manage their own work; within limits, we each set our own schedule).

We are all involved in the open source community and love helping each other grow as developers. A visual design background is great but not required. An interest in sports, too, is great but not required.

David | San Francisco, CA | https://www.senddavid.com | Fulltime | OnsiteDavid is a San Francisco-based software startup that combines technology and legal research to help customers resolve disputes with their cable, internet, or wireless service provider.

The $200+ billion legal industry is still stuck in the 20th century: paper-based, error-prone and slow. With rates averaging $300 / hour, only 15% of Americans with serious legal problems even seek the help of a lawyer. For everyday issues like bogus cable bills, fewer than 1 in 1,000,000 of us seek justice, even though monopolists like Comcast rank in the 0th percentile for customer satisfaction. Class actions used to provide the necessary scale to combat certain widespread frauds, but over the past 5 years, the Supreme Court has allowed businesses to eliminate them.

The technical challenges are hard, ranging from automating the monitoring of corporate misconduct to crafting delightful user flows to building the leading database of outcomes in consumer disputes. In parallel with the software development, a team of Yale Law School alums conducts the deep research so that our users finally feel empowered, rather than intimidated, by the law.

We currently have a MVP (https://www.senddavid.com) and are looking for a Senior Engineer as a very early member of the team.

Position: Senior Engineer | Salary: $80-$125k | Equity: 1.0%-4.0% | https://angel.co/david-174/jobs/72943-engineer

"Agent Engineer" sounds like something from Person Of Interest, but actually you'll own our lean, mean data collection agent. An ops visibility tool is only as good as the data it collects, and we pride ourselves on gathering everything from logs to system metrics to application metrics to API data. If you enjoy constantly getting to play with new tools, come help us connect to... everything. You'll get to play with packages from Apache to Zookeeper, APIs from AWS to, er, Azure, while tackling challenges such as monitoring 100,000+ simultaneous log files using minimal CPU.

At Scalyr, we've built a log analysis and ops visibility tool that our users rave about, because it smashes expectations for performance and ease of use. We offer the equity, influence, and fun of an early-stage company, with stability, great pay, and a low-stress culture. We have great backers, strong traction, and an 11-digit target market. I've built half a dozen startups, including Writely (aka Google Docs), and I can honestly say this is my favorite so far.

Pachyderm | Lead the front-end engineering team | SF ONSITE

pachyderm.io, github.com/pachyderm/pachyderm

Email: jobs@pachyderm.io

Pachyderm is looking for a Javascript expert to lead and own the entire web front-end, analytics dashboard, and data browser! Pachyderm is just 5 people right now, so you'd be getting in right at the ground floor and have an enormous impact on the success and direction of the company as well as building the rest of the engineering team.

Experience with full product life cycles and designing interfaces that are easily updated over time as products evolve is a must. Some backend server-side experience is also a nice plus, but not a strict requirement.

Right now Pachyderm's core technology just hit v1.1 and is production-ready. The next phase is to build a hosted service including administration panel and advanced data visualization tools.

Salaries start at $120k and go up from there based on experience. We also offer significant equity (0.5-2%), full benefits, and all the usual startup perks. This position is based in SF.

Positions:

* Lead Front-end JS engineer

* Full-stack backend/web services engineer

* Core distributed systems/infrastructure engineer

Our hiring process is focused around strong communication skills and simulating our actual work environment, not BS coding questions.

Read more about our company vision and goals:

What would data analytics infrastructure (namely Hadoop) look like if we rebuilt it from scratch today? We think it would be containerized, modular, and easy enough for a single person to use while still being scalable enough for a whole company.

We have an engineering culture and a very collaborative environment. We work hard and have a lot of fun along the way.

It turns out theres a lot more to build, and its surprising how much can be done by a small group of empathetic people with a Silicon Valley mindset, deep technical experience, working closely with dedicated civil servants in government.

Zimmer Biomet (formerly Respondwell) is hiring. Were hoping to bring a couple of experienced people onboard to help us build serious games in the healthcare industry, specifically in the rehab space. We use video games to help people get back on their feet after theyve broken themselves via sprains, breaks, falls, or surgery.

We're looking for two important hires: The first is a database & network engineer to help us scale our current system to deal with the increased server load as we continually get more patients & clinicians. This position requires serious experience with PostgreSQL, setting up failover, replication, and load balancing on the server, and writing backend Python code to interface with the server web-framework (we use CherryPy). You'll also need experience setting up and administering a Linux VPS through AWS (mostly) or Azure (not as much).

The second position is a Unity3D engineer. For this position you must have experience in Unity3D and C#, and have reasonable 3D math skills. Python experience is a huge plus but not required.

For both of these positions were looking for people who are self-directed and like working with cool technologies in ways that havent been used before. This job will definitely stretch your brain.

These jobs are located in Portland, Oregon, and would require relocation here, with assistance provided to the right candidates. We offer great salaries, great benefits, and a chance to work on projects that actually make people feel better. We work sane hours and don't throw around words like rockstar or ninja to describe our team. Work/life balance is extremely important to us.

If any of this sounds good and you fit the descriptions of what we're looking for, send your resume & any relevant links to jobs@respondwell.com and we'll take it from there.

Mindflash | Palo Alto, CA | Full-Time | Remote or Onsite | US Citizen or Green Card only

We are a small edtech company (~30 people) by El Camino & Page Mill Road in Palo Alto looking to ramp up our engineering team by up to 5 solid mid-level/senior full-stack engineers.

Our company has been around since 1999, and remained small while only having ever raised a seed & Series A round with a single investor. Our product is a learning management system (LMS), which allows our clients to educate their users. It was recently ranked #4 in Fortune's most flexible workplaces[1], and I have the pleasure of saying that this is the best company I have worked at thus far due to the combination of excellent management/executives, and tremendous work-life balance enjoyed by all, as well as ample opportunity to move technology forward. In addition, we have better gender balance at the company than most in the area, including in engineering - we strive to be inclusive, although primarily we just want people who are awesome to work with, including being considerate to others.

We have a smart & burgeoning engineering group that is working on some interesting problems. Our tech stack includes Node.js (v4), Angular 1 & 2, MySQL, Elasticsearch, & Jenkins, as well as Selenium with Java 8 on the QA automation side. There is a lot of opportunity across the stack to touch many different areas to make improvements. We are open to trying different technologies as well, and have a culture of writing tests for our code. We strike a great balance of keeping product quality high while creating the ability to address technical debt, and get raving reviews from our clients for ease of use.

We are willing to relocate able candidates, or allow working remote if the candidate is willing to work roughly standard Pacific time working hours (9 am - 5 pm PT).

Our interview process generally involves no whiteboarding or live coding, and instead focuses on experience & ability to design software while working on a team.

Please contact me at wesley.cho(at)mindflash.com if interested in more details - no recruiters please, I will not respond.

Enigma|http://enigma.io/| New York, NY

The volume of data created by governments and businesses is growing exponentially. Organizations struggle just to store it all, let alone make sense of it. Enigma helps organizations and individuals fuse, organize, and explore data to make smarter decisions. At Enigma, we started from the realization that there is an enormous quantity of hidden knowledge locked away in data silos and obscure formats, just waiting to be released. We are building data discovery and analytics tools that make it simple for organizations to liberate their own private data, and for the wider community to explore and build upon Enigmas own integrated public data platform. We believe data can reveal tremendous things about the world and that it will continue to transform it in the years and decades to come. After winning TechCrunch Disrupt NYC in '13, we have since grown into a Series B Startup, and we're growing quickly!

Currently hiring Software Engineers, Data Scientists, Designers and more.

Converge | San Francisco, CA | Software Engineers | Onsite | Full-time | Drones / Mobile / Web App

* We're an enterprise software startup (seed stage) that makes it easy for skilled professionals (think construction, insurance, real estate, etc) to use drones everyday in their job through a combination of incredible AI and HRI. We're generating revenue and among our customers, count a Fortune 50 company.* Looking for junior or senior software engineers, and (paid) interns. We're less concerned with your skill set and more about what you would find motivating to work on every day. We do work that spans everything from Drones to AI to Data Viz to IOT.

About Converge:* Started in 2015, our founders were some of the first people to work on drones in the world, worked on the unmanned Blackhawk helicopter, and created the first mobile app ever for flying a drone (way back in 2008 at MIT...)* We like people who have excelled at something outside of work, and are just downright interesting to have a conversation with.* We like diamonds in the rough, but like to keep high expectations for each other.* If you are looking for a keg, ping pong table or bro culture, we're not going to be a good fit for each other. We actually do fly drones for our job, so I guess that's a culture benefit?* Our team is small, we're very deliberate about hiring- you would be in the first 10 employees.

To get started, please go to this page to get ahold of us: http://www.cvg.io/careers/

If you come from an underrepresented group in tech, please get in touch w/ me (@edave) directly via my HackerNews portfolio.

Roles were hiring for include:

* Electrical -- PCB design, layout, bringup, test. Bonus: experience with fault-tolerant electronics, power systems, or high speed digital design

* Mechanical -- design, build, and test deployables and mechanisms. Should be experienced in stress and thermal analysis

* Aerospace/controls -- implement solutions to 6 DOF, non-linear control problems. Experience with spacecraft controls is a plus but not required.

* RF/Microwave -- work across a broad range including microwave system-level design, design of LNA's and SSPA's, RF PCB design, and antenna design, simulation, and characterization.

Clever (YC S12) - San Francisco - onsite

Right now the market for educational software is a mess. Its incredibly difficult for developers to get their products into schools, and its even harder for them to scale. School districts spend tons of money on learning applications, but they have no way of knowing if students are even using the apps theyre purchasing. Teachers know theres great software out there, but relatively simple challenges like getting 30 students logged in at once make using it impossible.

At Clever, were working to change all that. We provide schools with a free API and single sign-on solution that makes using educational apps a breeze. Weve grown fast: after three and a half years, were moving data for a third of all K-12 students in America (20M kids), and 60,000 schools are using us to manage their education apps. Our goals are much bigger than that, though. We want to be two things:

-a single place where schools can easily integrate, manage and analyze all the software theyre using, and

-a single identity that students can use to see everything theyve learned across multiple apps.

Were a team of 115 (40 engineers) based in downtown SF, and were looking for engineers who enjoy working in (or would enjoy learning) Go, Node and React. More generally, we want people who are sharp, adaptable, and passionate about improving the way education works for everyone. In particular, were looking for senior engineers and engineering managers: empathetic leaders who are excited about teaching, coaching and professional development.

Interbay Applications | Tampa, FL | ONSITE 1-2 days/week | Full-time | Front-end web developer

We're a well-funded two year old startup with suitably crazy and cool goals involving geo stuff, VR, photography, 3D stuff, and the importance of real-life "place". You'd be the third full-time developer added to our core team of ~10 people.

Other than you, I'm the newest employee. I've been working here for five months. This is probably the most effective team I've worked with in my 15 year career, and definitely the most fun I've had. I don't mean it's a big party: we're working hard. But if having responsibility for key product components in an environment where you're treated with respect, you have skilled peers to brainstorm and share the work, and you have the design, testing, and business support you need to succeed at your job sounds like fun to you, then you know just what I mean.

Specific skills we're looking for include React and Three.js, but it's most essential that you've had substantial real life experience building JS-powered web apps.

The development team typically meet in our Ybor office 1-2 days/week, so it's pretty important that (1) that's a plausible commute for you and (2) you can work effectively without the buzz of office mates most of the time. We use slack to keep in touch.

Compensation is very competitive, and we have PTO and health insurance reimbursement. Interview process will involve a phone interview with me and the other full-time developer followed by an in-person meeting and a contract project to mutually try each other out if things go well. We can work with your schedule for these steps.

You can reach me at "joshu4@interb4y4pps.com".replace(/4/g,'a').

We are looking for somebody who has experience with the DRM subsystem in the Linux kernel, the internals of the X server or the userspace libraries.

You will take part in development of the core parts of our enterprise and community distributions and you will be encouraged to submit your work upstream. We will sponsor travel to relevant conferences where you can present your work. Working time is flexible and we offer a bunch of the usual benefits (these differ in different countries, though).

How to apply

Preferably, submit all relevant information in a single PDF file, so that no important detail is lost in transit. Give us some time to process your application. Expect the interview to be done over phone, unless you already live in Nuremberg or Prague (let us know in such case).

We aim to build the best user growth engine on the planet. It's crazy how messaging and email usage are changing, but the technology and capabilities haven't caught up to the 21st century.

Our team of hackers and thinkers is from quant finance/Twitter/Google/Yahoo/Zynga/Khan Academy/Palantir/CMU/MIT, (we built large parts of Twitter's growth systems). One of our top level goals is to build a uniquely fun and growth oriented company culture. Knowledge sharing in any capacity is highly valued here -- are you interested in prediction markets or PGP encryption? Do you enjoy teaching posture techniques or purely functional data structures to others? We pair program, design together, and generally create a learn-and-teach environment here. This is an opportunity to join a super-fast growing startup, in a huge market and with a great team, while it's still early.

If you're interested in coming on board, you can help with some challenges we face:

 - Scale our messaging API - Design and write performant, beautiful, asynchronous interfaces - Write software to build machine learned user models - Make data visualizations for our email and user data - Design an immutable deployment infrastructure for our platform
Some aspects of our culture that make us different:

 - We are all very focused on self improvement - Our company has egalitarian and transparent values (work when you want, on what you want) - We are chill and empathetic people - The company is completely transparent
Technologies you'll work with:

 - Scala - Elasticsearch - Postgres - Redis - ES6 - AngularJS - Play Framework - RabbitMQ - AWS
You'll get to work with us at our new office at 3rd & Harrison in San Francisco. If this sounds like an interesting and fun opportunity for you, please email me at aXRzYXVuaXhzeXN0ZW0raG5AaXRlcmFibGUuY29t or take a look at our open positions here: https://iterable.com/company/careers

Fu Team | TOKYO, JAPAN | SAN FRANCISCO, CA | REMOTE | VISA

$80K - $140k - Special Ops (Coding || Writing || Design || Products || Research || Business || Venture Capital || M&A)

Hiring incredibly smart folks with a no-nonense approach to communicating, creating, and maintaining relationships. This is the fastest way to become an insider in SV / tech.

This is role will put you in front of every kind of project you can imagine. Get on a flight to Southeast Asia to negotiate a contract with high ranking government officials. Code (or hire coders to create) an MVP for 3d printer IDE. Re-design everything about company in 48 hours (logo, name, press kit, marketing message, hiring, etc.) and then see it live on Techcrunch. Diligence a $2M investment. Edit an masterpiece for Forbes. Co-create a new class on corporate venture capital. Jump in to help a team scaling from 100k to 100M users in 4 weeks.

These examples hopefully provide you a sense of the adventure you in for. You'll work on a tiny team of brilliant folks on a range of projects I am involved in. It's important we hit it off: I like no no-nonsense folks who jump in and make everything they touch better. Communicators rule the world, so you better be good at writing and speaking. Your ambitions should include something grand. You think it's worth it to pick up the refreshments and chauffeur a guest to an engagement in order to get 10 minutes with a world famous entrepreneur.

I like people who have done the hard things, failed (or not), and still have the curiosity an enthusiasm to get back up and go full speed ahead. Most importantly, you need to be really really good at something.

Please email my chief of staff keela@fu.team with the following subject line: Apply: Special Ops (SKILLSET) - NAME - REMOTE|TOKYO|SF

The body should include an introduction and personal noteSKILLSET should be something you're spectacular at.

Arachnys | London UK/New York USA | Devops, Data engineering, Frontend | Full Time

We are a risk and compliance solution, splicing together data from the deep web with unstructured and semi-structured information to help customers make decisions about the risks posed by their customers and third parties. Our customers are the worlds largest financial institutions, law firms, and consultancies. They use our software to identify and address financial crimes such as fraud, money laundering and terrorist financing.

We handle hundreds of terabytes of structured and unstructured data, and as a result our infrastructure is pretty complex - Hadoop, HBase, ElasticSearch, Python, Docker, some Go, etc - and highly automated using Ansible.

- We're looking for devops/sysadmin types to join our small devops team and help us go to the next level in automation and orchestration. Bonus points if you have managed server fleets of 100+. (LON or NYC)- Ambitious, multitalented data engineers with experience with graph databases, ElasticSearch, Hadoop, or similar technologies. (LON or NYC)- If you're a senior frontend or backend engineer based in NY looking for a leadership role, get in touch. (NYC)

Email jobs@arachnys.com with a link to your profiles (github, linkedin etc - our own github https://github.com/arachnys/ shows we're serious about open source and actively open up non-core parts of our infrastructure) if you're interested. A founder will read your application and respond within a few days at the latest.

Remote applicants who are able to be in one of our offices at least 1 day/week may be considered - but you'd need to be willing to be onsite more at the start.

Beyond Labs | London, UK | Full Time | Front End Developer & Full Stack Engineer

Were looking for a front-end javascript developer to join our London-based team and lead the design of Beyond.

--What we do--

Beyond is an enterprise SaaS platform thats spearheading a new generation of companies - ones that remain agile as they grow. We do this by transforming the way companies plan their numbers - their budgets.

Ultimately, we believe companies do best when employees are empowered to take initiatives, rather than constrained by outdated budgets.

--About the Role - Front End Developer--

For too long, budgeting has meant monstrous spreadsheets or impenetrable business software - unintelligible to all except a few finance professionals. We need you to help us change this.

You will:

- lead the UX/UI development of Beyond, building off the successes (and failures!) of our MVP. Youll optimise and streamline core workflows, helping to find elegant ways for our users to visualise and edit large datasets.

- develop beautiful and engaging interfaces that appeal to the many different people that use Beyond: from front-line employees to managers, finance professionals and accountants.

- just as importantly, help bring personality and lovability to Beyond.

Amazon New Product Demand Forecasting | Seattle | Full-Time | On-Site ($130-$250+ depending on experience)

Amazon's New Product Demand Forecasting team is responsible for one of the most challenging problems in supply chain optimization: predicting sales for products that have no sales history. This is a uniquely creative space in Forecasting requiring our machine learning models to capture both the nuances of the global consumer marketplace as well as customer behavior on Amazon. Our team works closely with research scientists to invent new ways to make use of novel data, solve hard engineering problems around scaling and performance in predicting for tens of millions of products, and iterates quickly in order to stay on the cutting edge.

We're looking for an experienced, data-science-leaning software developer that is comfortable with big data and can:

* Design systems that provide a stable base for innovation in a rapidly changing business

* Improve Forecasting algorithms through data-driven analysis and experimentation in our Scala/Spark environment

* Optimize for scalability and performance of both distributed computations and near-metal C++ code

* Communicate their ideas clearly with all members of a diverse team

If this sounds interesting, I'd love to chat or buy you coffee. Email me (Stefan) at smai@ (amazon.com) with your resume and a brief introduction. (Interview process is 1 phone screen and onsite interview with whiteboard coding and behavioral questions about your experience.)

After launching 3 years ago we're already doing $1M+ in monthly sales with over 400,000 men using the service in the UK.

The Trade Desk | Full Time, Onsite | San Jose CA, San Francisco CA, Aliso Viejo CA, Ventura CA, Boulder CO, New York NY, London UK, Sydney AUS

Hiring: All levels of software engineers, as well as front-end focused developers who are comfortable with data-access design, development and optimization.

You might be a great fit for The Trade Desk dev team if..

* You are a full-stack engineer who wants to work everywhere, not just a small subset of components. Experience / interest in working in a variety of layers and technologies within a SOA is a must for our team. This includes: client-side AngularJS / JQuery, MVC-based web architecture, external RESTful APIs, distributed (and in our case, highly scaled) request handling services, no-SQL and relational SQL databases, many-layered data pipeline (e.g. data bus architecture, Hadoop / MPP data warehouse, etc.) that moves hundreds of thousands of items per second, and data visualization (e.g. Tableau). Experience in all these layers is not strictly required, but we do like to see experience working in more than one, as well as eagerness to work on projects that might slice through them all.

* You have product-driven software development experience using a modern, object-oriented language. Memory-managed languages are best -- .e.g. C#, Java, Python, Ruby, etc. We do most of our work in C#/.Net, but specific experience here is not required.

Cool stuff about TTD:

* Our platform processes 3.5million+ queries per second

* Work with the best engineering team in adtech

* The combination of huge datasets, high throughput, low latency and amazing scale means that we're constantly solving some of the biggest challenges in computer science.

* We've grown faster than any other adtech company in the industry, and have been recently recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in America by Inc. Magazine and Deloitte.

* Amazing Company Culture (We're very proud of our 5.0 rating on Glassdoor)

* Top-tier benefits

Resin.io | REMOTE | Linux engineers, Security engineers, Backend engineers, UI/Front-end engineers, Sales engineers

Resin.io allows IoT developers to push Linux Containers to embedded devices. See our demo of updating a drone in-flight at DockerCon [1]. We're very emphatic about our remote culture [2].

The resin.io team is composed of people passionate about quality code, well-thought out architecture, and great user experience. Etcher.io, a tool we recently released, is a good example of all those things. Most of our code is node.js though we're transitioning some parts of the stack to Go.

Some details on the individual roles:

Linux engineers - We're building a minimal OS for embedded devices[3]. Knowledge of Yocto Linux very helpful.

Security engineers - Passionate about building an end-to-end secure code delivery pipeline, from the cloud to the device, all the way down to the bootloader and CPU?

Backend engineers - Resin's backend is composed of ~10 node.js microservices, each with unique challenges.

UI/Front-end engineers - We're passionate about UX, and have a lot of cool features to build. Most of our UI is in AngularJS but knowledge of other frameworks a plus.

Sales engineers - (ideally in the bay area) - End-to-end understanding of resin.io, ability to work with customers to both teach and guide them to use resin.io effectively. You may need to spend time on-site with customers.

Workflow engineers - Looking for full-stack developers passionate about optimising the way a remote team works.

Our interview process is a first call to go through programming competence, as well as a follow up with the corresponding team lead. If any of the above sound exciting, drop us an email at join@resin.io

Tesorio (YC S'15) (https://www.tesorio.com) | Burlingame, CA | ONSITE

* Senior Backend Engineer: build microservices to interconnect accounting software & work on our webapp's backend (Python/Django)

* Senior Frontend Engineer: work with React, ES6, Gulp, and Webpack to build a B2B financial UX that users love

* Senior Full-Stack Engineer: all of the above :)

* Apply to any of these roles here: https://jobs.lever.co/tesorio

Tesorio is a Y Combinator-backed startup that is interconnecting finance systems between companies to create a world where B2B invoices & payments are automated & simple.

Imagine a world where B2B invoices & payments are automated and require no human interaction. That's where the world is headed and we want to be the ones to make it happen. It does not make sense that companies have whole departments dedicated to this workflow with the technology available today.

You'll help us build algorithms to determine a company's utility for cash, integrations between accounting systems so they talk directly to one another, help us build the next generation of B2B payments that is as simple as PayPal/Venmo, and more. We raised a seed round led by top investors including First Round Capital (Uber + Warby Parker), Floodgate Capital (Twitter + Lyft), Fuel Capital (Layer + CoreOS), Red Swan (Coinbase + Buffer), Slow Ventures (early Facebook team), Hillsven Capital (founders of Ariba), and Paul Buchheit (creator of Gmail, YC Partner).

We want to start an internal R&D team made of software engineers/developers who love and have experience in natural language processing and/or machine learning. We already have different projects[1] going on which will benefit from these technologies, and we believe that this is just a start.

We already have fully remote team members in Europe and Asia, but for this important project we would prefer to create a core team who can work locally in our office in Rome. We'll also consider remote applicants if the fit is optimal.

If you're interested, feel free to write to hello@monksoftware.it

http://www.monksoftware.it/

[1] One project where we want to use NLP & machine learning technologies is http://hashtagify.me/

We also have a chat app used by major customers who would like to add smart chatbot features. Other projects are in the works.

Bauer Xcel Media | Devops Engineer | Full Time | New York, NY or REMOTE

Bauer Xcel Media is the small digital 'startup' arm of Bauer Media, a very old, stable, and profitable German publishing company that operates in multiple countries around the world. We have two main products. A content publishing platform on a large scale for our magazines. And a complex app to run a multi-region sweepstakes business for our magazines.

We have a really great culture, a super positive and friendly team, and exceptional work-life balance. We are based in NYC, though the dev team has a very remote-friendly culture as long as you generally overlap with EST hours.

This role does not include 24/7 pager duty, and since it will be primarily dev-facing, the majority of your communication will be done over slack, JIRA, and google hangouts with a team of bright and friendly people. We're looking for a mid-level person who can help us clean up and automate some things and keep the ship running smoothly and well-documented.

Some technologies we use include Ruby, Rails, Heroku, AWS, Postgres, Mongo.

Email me afogg at bauerxcel.com for more info or please mention my name (Alex) as a referral if you apply.

Lending Tree, Inc. | Charlotte, NC | ONSITE | https://www.lendingtree.com

Email us at: jobs@lendingtree.com

Must be local or willing to relocate

Who we are: LendingTree, Inc. empowers consumers with information, tools, advice, products and services for critical transactions and financial decisions in their lives.

Specifically - We're looking for:

Back-end Engineers:You're a crack-shot in your back-end language of choice. Our system matches users with hundreds of possible opportunities in real-time. Needless to say, we're looking for people who care about performance. A lot. Our back-end systems are written in C#, Java using Redis, Mongo, and SQLServer. You might know C# or Java or you might not, but either way you're willing to learn. Regardless, you can impress us in your language of choice. You understand algorithms matter. You also understand sloppy database access could make that ugly n^2 algorithm look absolutely blazing fast.You love to code. You've built stuff. Stuff you can show us. Stuff you can't wait to show us. You know the right technology implemented the right way matters.We're looking for both Senior and Junior back-end engineers. If you're a Senior Engineer - you've worked in server-side code for a few years. You've scaled to thousands or maybe millions of users.If you're a Junior engineer, you love to code and you're good at it. You're smart, You're passionate, and most of all you can't wait to get started. (New grads please apply!)

Front-end Engineers:You know Javascript. You know the ins, the outs and how to make it blazing fast. You care about performance because you know your users are waiting for every line of your code. You've used some popular frameworks, maybe angular or react - but you know one or more cold.

Where we are:

Charlotte, NC. If you're into great weather and a central location (our airport is an American hub) you should check us out. You can pick great urban living (Uptown's 4th ward is the place to be) or get yourself a huge house (at reasonable prices) in the burbs. The standard of living for an engineer doesn't get any better than this.

While we're actively seeking junior positions (1-3 years of experience), we encourage qualified mid- and senior-level candidates to apply as well. We have a strong preference for local candidates but can help with Visa sponsorship for the right person if needed.

We are looking for:

1. Data Analysts and Engineers: Python, R, PostgreSQL, MySQL, ELK, and Spark, but we're not married to any particular stack. We want you to work in whatever way is most effective. Must be comfortable working with messy, disaggregated data sets and have a strong grasp of ETL and data preparation. Bonus points for D3 and an interest in turning data into something beautiful and engaging.

2. Business Analysts and Strategists: Excel, PowerPoint, Word (and cloud equivalents). Some experience with analytics tools and basic scripting is helpful but not required. This person will help shape the strategy and direction of current and future projects in a way that moves the needle.

Looking ahead to the coming weeks and months, we're also interested in a DBA/Architect, a systems engineer (with some exposure to distributed systems -- technologies we use include Hadoop, HDFS, Avro, Spark, Kafka, and Flume), a project manager, data engineers, scientists, and developers.

Zoomforth (https://zoomforth.com) | Full Stack Engineer | San Francisco or REMOTE | Full-time

Hey HN readers!

We're looking for a talented engineer to join us in building a communications product for salespeople, recruiters, and marketers. We have a stable and growing base of customers. We're unlocking some real opportunity with this, and we need help.

We make it possible for companies to build websites that serve as resources in their conversations with people -- "Squarespace for business teams".

For example, in our sales use case, the company may build a "pricing sheet" page. The salesperson can send that link out, and when their prospects arrive on the page, their activity is tracked, and we can send notifications back to the sender.

From an engineering perspective, examples of product challenges we wrestle with are as follows:

- improving the flexibility and intuitiveness of our page creation process- storing and serving multimedia assets on behalf of our customers (including video)- tracking and reporting on the behavior of our customers' page visitors- defining and addressing specific user personas and their permissions

The technology tools we use to build our site include AWS, Python (Pyramids, Celery), Backbone.js, React.js, LESS, and others.

For collaboration and workflow we use Vagrant, Gulp, CircleCI, Slack, Email, Asana, and other tools as needed.

You would be our 3rd engineer, so you would have a big effect on both the engineering culture and the product we make.

We are committed to making or company somewhere that supports remote employees -- if you've worked effectively as a remote employee (or perhaps run a small team of them), that's a plus. Right now, only our designer is remote, and we want to build on that.

If this sounds exciting to you, please apply at https://goo.gl/forms/GTyISOOjTJhSoUMj1

Thanks!

Canary (https://canary.is) | New York, NY | Data Platform Engineer | Full-time | ONSITE

We're the innovative home security company that grew out of a crowdfunding campaign[0] and brought to market our easy-to-use and user-friendly video monitoring solution. Canary combines the latest advances in computer vision, learning, and data science to help our users live more secure lives.

I lead the data engineering team at Canary, and am looking to grow this team in pursuit of making our home security devices faster and smarter. Canary's security camera is unique in that it comes with multiple onboard sensors - temperature, air quality, and humidity - that produce a continuous second data stream in addition to the visuals captured by each device.

Do you dream of electric sheep? Are Jelly Beans, Kit Kats, Lollipops and Nougat (lets face it, it should have been Nutella) releases before they are desserts? Do you find yourself arguing that Open Source is the software Renaissance, that a Nexus is better than a Galaxy, and that an iPhone wouldn't know real multitasking if it hit it?

If this sounds like you, we're looking for native Android developers to join us in making apps for sites ranging from established communities serving over 1,500,000 members to startups looking to invent themselves through a slick Google Play presence.

We're a small-mid sized consulting company (~180 people) with a small company feel. Founders really invest in personal development, have weekly if not monthly happy hours, summer and winter weekend getaways, and the ability to WFH when necessary. Also, the projects are pretty engaging and theres hardly a dull moment. I'm on a small team working to revamp the entire US Immigration portal - high visibility, and direct impact on millions of lives. The White House has estimated that we'll make a 'direct impact on at least a million lives this year' alone.

We are hiring for a wide range of positions in software development. Looking for Ruby, Java, Python, .NET, mobile, and NodeJS engineers for a variety of experience levels.

JumpCloud | Sr. Software Engineer, Sr. DevOps Engineer | Boulder, Colorado (Greater Denver Area)

ONSITE, REMOTE possible for candidates with a good fit

At JumpCloud, we have a plan. See, theres this company that is ripe for displacement. They put out software that everyone uses but nobody loves. We think we can do it better. Much better. We can make it easy-to-use, more powerful, and massively scalable / highly available by putting it in the cloud. Just like Gmail supplanted Exchange, we want to disrupt (yes, we said it) the Directory server market.

Who are we? Were the scrappy underdog with the backing of serious VCs and the experience of a crack team of founders and engineers with decades of identity and Security experience.

Who are we looking for? Comrades in arms to fight the entrenched opposition. People who want to seriously change Identity and Directory Management. Were funded, were in downtown Boulder, and were making a big difference. Get in here and be a part of it!

Stack: Postgres/Mongo/Redis, NodeJS/Golang, Docker/Saltstack

Academia.edu | Full Stack Engineer | San Francisco, CA | Onsite

Academia.edu is addressing two problems:

- Open access. The goal here is to put every academic pdf ever written on the internet, available for free.

- The reproducibility crisis. It has emerged over the last few years that 65-90% of the scientific literature is not reproducible. What this means is that if you try to reproduce the experiments described in a paper, 65-90% of the time you will not get the same findings. This is known as "the reproducibility crisis"

With regard to open access, Academia allows academics to upload papers to Academia, and make them freely available. Academics have uploaded about 14 million pdfs to Academia.edu, and upload about 1 million a month. About 30 million people come to Academia each month to access and share papers.

With regard to reproducibility, we think the way to solve the reproducibility crisis is to build a new peer review system that (a) crowd-sources peer review from the academic community and (b) provides credit to material that journals don't publish (data-sets, code, replications, failed replications).

Academia has built a recommendation system which is the basis of our approach to (a) and (b). We realize that addressing reproducibility is a huge challenge. We need mission-driven engineers to come and help us. We have raised $28 million from Tencent, Khosla Ventures, Spark Capital, and True Ventures. Bijan Sabet from Spark Capital writes "We believe open science is really important. We believe Academia.edu is going to have a profound impact on the world."

We are looking to hire full stack software engineers. Technologies we use include Ruby, Rails, Postgres, DynamoDB, React. Our office is in downtown San Francisco. For more information, visit http://academia.edu/hiring. If you are interested to learn more, please email Richard Price at richard [at] academia.edu

ROOT | Columbus, OH | Full-time | Onsite | https://joinroot.com

Root is an auto insurance carrier, like GEICO or Progressive.

We started the company to make car insurance priced based on driving safety rather than personal details like education and occupation. We're a startup we have 12 people and have been working on this for a little over a year.

We've built an iOS app that gathers data on how people drive. We use that to set insurance prices. To build the best possible user experience, we went through the arduous process of starting an insurance carrier from scratch.

We're well funded, and we're looking to bring on a couple more talented engineers. Tech stack involves Rails, iOS/Swift, and JS/React. Email me at dan@joinroot.com

StoryWorth | SF | Full-Time https://www.storyworth.com

Were looking for a full-stack engineer to join us at StoryWorth (www.storyworth.com).

This role is a good fit for you if you want to work on a meaningful consumer product, and if you work best with a lot of responsibility on a small team.

Were a service that helps people record their family stories and print them in beautiful hardcover books. We have raised a seed round, have paying customers who love us, and are on track to be profitable.

Youll be taking over the core engineering of the site, scaling it as we grow and implementing major new features. Because of this, we need someone with significant engineering experience (3-5 years full time work). You should be comfortable Python, Javascript, HTML and CSS. Bonus points if you have mobile experience and an interest in design.

Our development process is very collaborative. We'll wireframe a new feature together, you'll put together an end-to-end prototype, and we'll iterate from that. We care more about clean maintainable code than domain expertise. Our stack includes Python (Tornado), Mongo, Swift, Heroku, Stripe, Twilio & Mailgun.

If you want to apply, email me a short note about why this posting caught your attention and well go from there.

I cant wait to hear from you!
