I deactivated my Facebook account several months ago, and it's been about 90% great, 10% frustrating. It's great for all the obvious reasons (less timesuck, less compulsion to endlessly scroll your life away, no notification interruptions).

The frustrations are real, though. Primarily it's around events and photos. There are some communities I participate in that regularly organize events through Facebook, and now I don't really get invited to those anymore. It's also harder to organize events where you casually invite people you don't know as well.

It's also occasionally annoying not being able to dig up a certain photo you wanted for reference. Even if you have a copy of the photo somewhere, if you don't have it hosted online then you can't really bring it up to show it to someone.

Still, frustrations aside, it's 90% great, and I recommend everyone try it for themselves.

You've ever been to one of those pages that embed Facebook's comment engine? Yeah, those are the worst. I did some analysis on a random page with just three Facebook comments. Requests to Facebook's servers accounted for 1.5 MB of the 2.4 MB tranfered by the ENTIRE page. 87 network requests, 35 javascript files injected and it didn't even load all the comments! (I had to click on a "Load more comments" button to load the rest of the comments.)

Why the hell do you need 37 javascript files and 1.5 MB to load three comments?

Not everything on the internet needs to be public (or part of the "open web" as the article calls it). Facebook is a fantastic place for web content that isn't meant to be public.

This idea of posting "public content" on Facebook is inherently flawed. I agree with the article on that much.

However, what I haven't figured out yet is if this is actually an evil-Facebook issue or just a user issue. Is Facebook actively encouraging this web breaking behaviour or is it a "mis-use" of what the tool originally intended (e.g., a safe place to post content/blog/etc. with privacy restrictions)?

I'm no Facebook fanboy but this article feels like a "why does my square peg not fit into their round hole" type of complaint. Facebook is a social network, not a public blogging platform.

Here is my interpretation of the complaints. Please point out what I am missing.

>It's impractical...

Square peg round hole.

>It's supporting their downgrading and killing the web...

Facebook posts being inherently (mostly) simple text is 'killing the web'? I don't buy it.

>Facebook might go out of business.

Just a generic SaaS complaint. Nothing unique to Facebook about this.

Am I missing a core argument here?

Amen. There are dozens of very good reasons for righteous anger toward Facebook, and only a handful are in this article. But just those are enough. And enough is enough.

All this open-web bitching sounds oddly familiar from back when AOL was a tech monstrosity with nearly everything inside its walled-garden. Facebook is basically just a worldwide version of AOL, and plenty of people are tiring of it, just as they tired of AOL's dialup shenanigans and obnoxious floppy disk marketing.

And Facebook, too, will eventually crust away when the underlying tech improves (universal 5G? who knows?) and the next Steve Case / Mark Zuckerberg visionary builds the next generally-centralized service for most internet users. But the open web will survive just fine.

I have a feeling that Facebook will be on the decline. My teenagers and early-20 year-olds and their friends (not just local, but all over the US) think Facebook is for old people. I actually heard a 16 year old recently giving a speech where he mentioned Snapchat Stories, then, as an aside, said, "That's like Facebook or Pintrest for you old people."
tuna-piano 11 minutes ago 0 replies      
I posted this comment a few weeks ago, but this seems super relevant to extend the author's point. I agree that Facebook is a walled garden. But in the developed world, Facebook is just part of the internet that people use. However, in some parts of the developing world, Facebook is the only internet people use.


Facebook's dominance is even more pronounced in parts of the developing world. I've met people in Asia (Myanmar and Nepal) who have just accessed the internet for the first time in the past 12-24 months (through their Android smartphones).But they don't know the true internet - they only know the internet through the Facebook app. They use it like we use Google and web browsers.

To them, Facebook is the internet. They don't have email accounts. They don't use the browser. They don't search the web. I met someone in a small town who never even used the maps feature. I tried to think of what value the true internet might bring them, but when I suggested that "you can search for news and read other things", the response was that they already did that with the Facebook App.

One guy handed me his phone, so I could add myself as a friend on his Facebook. While I started typing my name, I noticed his search history... and to him, Facebook was even a substitute for what people in the USA might use Incognito mode for!

I would call Facebook their internet portal, but it's not really a portal to anything - Facebook is just the entire internet to them.

Buzzfeed (yes, Buzzfeed) did an excellent writeup of Myanmar, that mirrors what I saw there:https://www.buzzfeed.com/sheerafrenkel/fake-news-spreads-tru...

Nobody asks, they dont care about the email, he said, explaining that most dont know that creating an email address is free, and easy. No one is using that. They have Facebook.

I'm in a small minority of people who want to pay money to get on FB and can't.

I've been trying for months to advertise on there but there's no such thing as a business-only FB acct, you need an organic personal account. And some combination of my activity (not friending anyone, not using FB for anything, using an incognito tab, my IP address? I don't know) looks like trouble to the powers that be so my account keeps getting shut off.

I hate them just as much as these other guys but for 2x the reasons.

The open web is an attack on the average user. It's unremittingly hostile as a place to go to if you aren't part of the culture that spawned it. Facebook does a very poor job of sheltering people from the worst of the open web, but it's about a billion times more bearable than the open web scaled up to modern adoption rates would be.
dvt 19 minutes ago 0 replies      
The irony, I think, is that Facebook tends to be too open. There are pictures or posts or status updates I'd like hidden from the world. Facebook isn't necessarily an attack on the open web, it's an attack on content ownership. When it comes to my personal blog, I can create, alter, and delete as I see fit. On Facebook, I'm sure that posts from my early 20s still linger somewhere in the abyss of their data centers.

I'm sure that some embarrassing or unflattering picture of me is somewhere out there. And I think that's the crux of this problem: Facebook is the gatekeeper; it decides whether or not it wants to open or close the door on content. Of course, this has an implication as far as its openness is concerned, but the far more dangerous aspect is, as I mentioned, the fact that I should be the gatekeeper for my own content.

At least that's the way I see it. I agree with the idea that as a social platform, Facebook is dying. People contribute less and less personal and intimate content in lieu of linking articles or throwaway memes. Nowadays, I mostly use it as a news feed.

I think there's a vacuum out there ripe for disruption; a combination between Snapchat and Tumblr. A sort of MySpace for the new decade and a platform where people can be themselves again.

>> Facebook going out of business seems unlikely

Is it? Because it seems to me that they are having plenty of issues with gaining the trust of advertisers too. Considering that advertising is the bread and butter of their business, this would normally be something of a mini-crisis.

A quick search for "do advertisers trust facebook" gives me






Of course, no one actually believes anything Facebook says with regards to privacy, and probably never did.

I would seriously doubt if there is anyone who actually looks at their practices who doesn't think they conduct large scale psychological experiments on the human lab rats who continue to use FB.

In other words, seems like there are enough ingredients here for an implosion. Something has to give.

Pinboard Acquires Delicious blog.pinboard.in

I honestly didn't realize delicious was still around. It felt really groundbreaking at the time. I loved the ability to tag and search for links by tags to find new interesting content. Perhaps with introduction news mashups like digg it didn't feel as useful anymore. I stopped using delicious soon after it was acquired by yahoo.

Site has been bounced around a bit since.


"The site was founded by Joshua Schachter and Peter Gadjokov in 2003 and acquired by Yahoo in 2005. By the end of 2008, the service claimed more than 5.3 million users and 180 million unique bookmarked URLs.[2][3][4] Yahoo sold Delicious to AVOS Systems in April 2011,[5] and the site relaunched in a "back to beta" state on September 27 that year.[6] In May 2014, AVOS sold the site to Science Inc.[7] In January 2016 Delicious Media, a new alliance, reported it had assumed control of the service.[8]"

I built a five-year career of self-employment on the back of a Mac app called Pukka which was itself built upon Delicious.


I turned the interest in the app into my first piece of commercial software which, coming from an open source and free software background, was actually pretty daunting. I timidly started charging five bucks in the pre-App Store days, before eventually raising the price over time to make it more sustainable.


I had ups and downs, launched a second app (Meerkat, for SSH tunneling), but eventually realized I wasn't really an indie product person as much as I was a people and services one, so I ended up doing about 80% consulting and 20% Mac software, including Pukka.

I eventually ended up folding up shop after I went to work for Mapbox full-time in 2011.


This is something Maciej even wrote about.


So I'll always have a spot in my heart for Delicious, and this seems a fitting and appropriate end. I'm so glad its content will remain available in perpetuity.

I am still waiting for a better experience in save what I like.

Pocket is great for text, but only for that. Pinboard is cool and safe but is not for me. I still use google to find things that I have saved before, since 96, I have countless files called Temp on bookmarkers for things that I need organize, things saved on twitter, Medium, Reddit, Pinterest, Instagram, Google Keep, HN, Evernote and on mobile, there are tons of screenshots of things that I could use later. And that is for things that I already have seen, but, unfortunately, nothing of this is used to refine my experience in discovery new things that I could, potentially, like to see.

I really hope that more people attempt to compete with Pinboard.

I've used Delicious for 12 years, with 10,000+ bookmarks in it. Delicious went up and down and was sold, I got nervous and got a Pinboard account as a backup, back when it was doing one-time charges, but inertia kept me in Delicious. The recent downtimes, plus the iOS app no longer working, and Pinboard extensions making saving links easy, pushed me over last month. I was frustrated that the Delicious export went away, so the Pinboard acquisition is going to be perfect for me.

Poor Delicious. They were a victim of web 2.0. Much like Digg.

Delicious vs Pinboard was basically Digg vs Reddit.

The one who focused on the basic core usecase over flashy features and modern/trendy design won.

I almost can't believe this isn't one of Maciej's snarky satirical posts, if only because there's no way he would do this with stock or debt and so it must be an all-cash transaction, and I didn't realize that he was either pulling in that much or Delicious was that desperate.

I signed up for an archival Pinboard account last weekend though, so maybe it was my $25 that put it over the top ;)

If you're young enough and do not go back in time on the Internet; you have no idea what it was like pre-pinboard days. If you're old enough and did not think having a paid service provides all the solutions to the Internet's underlying problem; you know what I mean above.

I was at a talk by Janna Levin, astrophysicist and author of a book Black Hole Blues that describes LIGO. (E.g., https://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/18/books/review-black-hole-b...)

She gave a neat analogy between GWs, as sensed by LIGO, and an electric guitar. In the sense that a distant pluck on the string is transmitted as a wave down the string to the pickup, which senses a little wiggle in the string and amplifies it. I thought it was a poetic analogy that gives a second meaning to the word "instrument" in this context.

The numbers here are just staggering:

- Black hole merger occurred 3 billion light years away

- Two solar masses were converted to energy

- Briefly 10^34 megatons of energy were released every second

This is hard to intuitively wrap your head around because we think of space as constant. Something like this can distort space itself. Amazing stuff.

Anyone familiar with this branch of astronomy want to explain why one detection in a volume on the order of 27 billion cubic light years is reasonable? Are they still processing data and will find more events? Is the sensitivity highly anisotropic so the detection volume is significantly smaller? Or are events like this just really conveniently rare that we get about 1 every data gathering interval?

Somewhat naive questions, as I know very little about astronomy. Do black holes "move?" How is it that they could merge if they're stationary, unless they're pulling each other in I guess? If black holes are indeed pulling in everything, does that mean the whole universe would eventually be one giant black hole?

How does LIGO separate vibrations caused by a nearby truck from whatever reading that is required for gravitational waves?
mudil 1 hour ago 3 replies      
Here's what I don't understand.

In the first detection, they mentioned that two black holes collapsed, emitted gravitational waves, and the resulting combined mass was less than then sum of two previous masses because energy was spent on gravitational wave generation. Hence it means, that due to gravitational interactions, objects leak mass. Now, we know that every object in the universe is gravitationally related to every other object, plus universe is expanding hence objects are constantly in flux with each other. The question is where all the leaked mass goes? Can this leakage account for dark matter? What about the space-time, does it function as a storage medium for this energy that now came from the leaked mass?

Please explain...

That makes it the #3 cause of death, just behind heart disease and cancer (http://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2016/05/03/47663618...). This is a major societal catastrophe - and it needs to be fixed. Part of the solution is the long-overdue modernization of our nation's health IT infrastructure.

UrbanStems, a same-day flower delivery e-commerce experience, is looking primarily for mid to senior level backend developers. We are vertically integrated with our own supply chain, fulfillment & delivery, and customized e-commerce platform optimized for a great customer experience. As you can imagine, technology plays an important part at every step of that process. We're looking for more engineers/developers to help build out features for our internal usage and for our customers' delight. You'd have a lot of say and room to experiment. Our API is primarily in NodeJS. Our front-end is a React/Redux application. We absolutely love PostgreSQL with PostGIS and Redis. Lambdas are becoming a new favorite for services. A full stack developer would be ideal but if you're more comfortable with the backend then that's totally okay (i.e. if you're focused on front end dev, this position isn't going to be interesting for you. But reach out to me in the fall).

We'll pay for relocation if you aren't in the DC area.

4+ years of experience

- Backend languages: NodeJS/Python/Ruby/<insert language here>

- Datastores: PostgreSQL (or SQL in-general), Redis, etc

- Building APIs (internal/external)

- General understanding of DevOps

(Awesome to have) 1+ years

- Front end JS (React/Backbone/Angular/etc)

- HTML/CSS knowledge

Facebook | Solutions Engineer | Menlo Park, NYC, Paris, Dublin, Dubai, Tel Aviv, Seoul | Onsite

Solutions Engineers at Facebook spend roughly half their time working with product engineering teams and writing production code. The other half of their time is spent working directly with partners to develop and execute their Facebook technology strategy.

We find that this setup is great for engineers that want to spend more time on the business side of things or have more people interaction while still being hands on with code.

This allows large advertisers to work directly with people at Facebook that have a knowledge of the ads codebase, and Solutions Engineers can implement great suggestions made by partners.

More about the role is available at https://www.facebook.com/careers/life/solutions-engineering-... .

Facebook | Solutions Engineering Manager | Berlin | Onsite

We also have a great opportunity for an engineering manager that would like to support a team in Berlin. You would support a distributed team, so some travel would be required. Roughly half the time would be spent on people management, with the other half on Solutions Engineering work.

We are looking for someone fluent in German.

We will consider a very experienced tech lead that would like to make the transition into people management.

If you would like to apply or have any questions, feel free to send me an email at rcheng@fb.com .

| Large Synoptic Survey Telescope | Senior Cloud Solutions Architect | ONSITE Tucson, AZ | VISA

Cloud engineering where clouds are the enemy! I'm at a major astronomy project to build a telescope that can observe the whole sky twice a week (lsst.org). Our Education and Public Outreach folks down the hallway from me are planning a bunch of cool projects for the general public, kids, and citizen scientists and need someone to come up with how it could all be done using current technology stacks.

So! You get to be one of the first people to learn about the earth-killing asteroid and you get to work on something that your annoying uncle can understand when you go home for Christmas and he asks "So what do you do all day with that computer?"

This is a technical leadership position and as the team is still ramping up it has to be on-site, but Tucson is a great town to live in (they don't call us "The Portland of the SouthWest" for nuthin') and you can buy a house for what it takes you to rent a closet in SV :-) If you need a visa that is fine, we're a quasi-academic shop and our HR is used to this kind of thing.

Don't let the incredibly sucky job application site put you off, it has nothing to do with what the rest of us do :-) Apply here http://ls.st/bo0 (I'm sorry, academia will have cool recruiting practices in, oh, 2045 or so). If you have questions drop me a line (email in the profile).

PS. You get to work with @astropixie in case you're a fan

Cliperado | Senior Engineers | Amsterdam | FULL TIME , ONSITE, SALARY: 48k-60k, cliperado.com- Senior backed engineer- Senior frontend engineer

Cliperado is looking for great engineers, who also like to think about why and what they are building and iterate over the solution a couple of times to make something that actually makes sense, both from a user and from a technical point.

So the pitch goes something like this: (needs some work though)

If youve ever created an online service, you know how much work it is to put screenshots in your documentation. You know it makes your service way easier to understand, reduces your churn and even increases signups. But it is just too much manual labor to keep the shots up to date.

We are creating a solution to fix this and it is coming along pretty nicely.

Our stack includes PHP, Python, VueJS, MySQL, Docker, Selenium, Browser Extensions, Bugs, Performance Issues and a sense of humor.

If you have any questions or you are interested - Please reach out to me arjen@cliperado.com

Cloud Platform @ Twitter | San Francisco, CA | ONSITE

We're looking for engineers to come work on Twitter's Cloud Platform team in downtown San Francisco. All of Twitter's stateless services run on our platform, and this means we need to support hundreds of thousands of tasks running across tens of thousands of machines (and growing every day!).

Our platform is almost entirely open sourced via Apache Mesos and Apache Aurora, and we're looking to push on and improve the efficiency, usability and reliability of our platform at our unique scale.

We have the following technologies on our team:

* Mesos - C++ - Isolation and resource management (https://github.com/apache/mesos)

* Aurora - Java - Service scheduler. (https://github.com/apache/aurora)

* Workflows - Scala/ReactJS - our internal Continuous Delivery platform

* Analytics Pipeline - Scala/Python - our data pipeline to feed back to users to help them make smarter decisions about how they use our platform.

* Operations - Python/Go/Puppet/etc. - The tooling we use to do all of this with a pretty painless oncall and only two SREs.

As you can imagine, it's a great team for an experienced generalist who enjoys all parts of building a product, but we also have problems that a specialist in any of these areas would have a field day with.

We're mostly looking for candidates who have at least a couple years experience designing (and implementing) complex systems in a team environment, as well as candidates excited about this space.

If this interests you at all or you'd like more information on the work we're doing, our roadmap or any other questions, please get in touch at dm@twitter.com

Sourceress | Operations | San Francisco | ONSITE

We're a (human-assisted) AI sourcing platform that delivers great results (customer quote: "I'd have a panic attack if you guys stopped existing"). We make it dramatically faster and easier for great companies to hire great people. Our mission is not just to fix hiring, but to fundamentally change the way that human mental effort is allocated.

One founder was the Chief of Staff at Dropbox, the other previously sold a company and published machine learning papers. We have a real business, customers, and revenue, with machine learning problems that are core to our product.

We're looking for a hungry, scrappy generalist to join our adventure. You'll be working directly with the CEO, so there's a ton of room to grow into the role you want and own core parts of the business as we grow.

Example projects: - Set up processes for training and quality control that scale as we grow. - Communicate directly with customers to understand their hiring needs and specify their exact requirements.- Manage the backend contractor team that makes our core product operate. - Handle any task that would otherwise slip through the cracks.

About you: - Youre highly reliable, effective, and amazing at getting things done quickly. - Great customer service and treating people with empathy is important to you.- You have some knowledge of software engineering and technology. You will be able to communicate intelligently about what a customer wants in a software engineer.

Email josh+hn@sourceress.co with your resume to apply.

There are many projects in the future to help keep us ahead (if that's possible :-) ) of the growth curves, more so than our DevOps group of one can currently handle.

Nava | Infrastructure Engineers, Fullstack Software Engineers, Designers | Washington DC, San Francisco SF, New York NYC | On-site - Full-time | $100k-$160k+ + equity + benefits

We're a small team of engineers, designers, and product builders that were brought in to help fix Healthcare.gov in the winter of 2013. Our revamped application is used by millions, converts 35% better, and halves the completion time.

It turns out theres a lot more to reimagine within government services, which is why were partnering with both the Department of Veterans Affairs and Medicare. With the VA, we are working to modernize their appeals system, making millions of veterans lives better through the process. Today, the average appeal takes 5 years to process; we can fix this. For Medicare, we are designing and building the architecture for Medicare's historic transition towards value-based care.

Its surprising how much can be done by a small group of empathetic people with deep technical experience, working closely with dedicated civil servants in government. Weve started Nava as a public benefit corporation to radically improve how our government serves its people, and we believe that the services our government provides should be clear and reliable.

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 four years, half of all schools in the US (68,000 schools) are using our platform. 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 just over 100 (40 engineers) based in downtown SF, and were looking for engineers who enjoy working in (or would enjoy learning) Golang, Node and React. More generally, we want people who are sharp, adaptable, and passionate about improving the way education works for everyone.

Housekeep | Full stack engineer | London, UK | ONSITE https://housekeep.com

Housekeep has quietly taken over as the leading platform for cleaners working in London. We measure our success first by the number of cleaners that want to work with us, and second by the number of satisfied customers who keep booking them week after week. We have created some world-first technologies to grow these numbers month after month, and to increase our efficiency as we scale.

We've got good foundational tools in place. You would be joining early enough to influence tool-choice and architecture as we go forward. We're looking for someone who is excited to work on new features from day one.

Our stack:

- Python, Django, Django Rest Framework

- PostgreSQL (including PostGIS for its advanced geographic modelling capabilities)

- AngularJS

- A hybrid mobile app for cleaners developed using Ionic

Experience in any of these technologies would be a plus, but we're more interested in your track record of building great products for the web.

If you're interested in hearing more about what we're doing, our economics and growth, and the kinds of things you might get to work on, email me. I'm the CTO and you'd be talking to me directly. We don't use any recruiters.

Snapdocs (YC W14, SV Angel) is an early stage, rapidly growing company looking to fill a variety of roles. (Growth, amiright?)We're a small team tackling the absolutely massive mortgage market. We're bringing modern, elegant software to a field that still relies on fax machines and manilla envelopes. We bring security, efficiency and joy to a paper-based pillar of the US economy.

The type of problems we're tackling involve workflow, product design, data, and computer vision for mortgage documents. For data, it decides everything we do. We won't start work on a new feature until we can point to the numbers we hope to move. Snapdocs' culture is one that trusts its team members to make smart decisions. This means we value both independent work as well as seeking collaboration. We're becoming ubiquitous in one segment of the market and we're looking to expand further.

Skills & Requirements Regardless of Role:* Being the 10th member of on a fast-growing technical team (and 30th employee overall). This means helping to form a healthy and happy culture. We strive to be respectful of each other's time and point of view. We're learning how to do this together. We want to create a place where it's OK to fail, and that you know the team has your back the whole way through.* Self-motivated. To us that means when you get an interesting problem, you will rip into it until you understand its nuances and perhaps have a glimpse of the solution.* Empathy. We work closely with our customers, meaning phone calls, emails, and sometimes lunch. It is important in this job to listen to them so that we can build what they need and want.

Pathlight is the first platform dedicated to helping sales managers. These managers are critical to any organizations success (and revenue), but are stuck with using whiteboards, email, and spreadsheets to do this vital job.

Sales managers use Pathlight every day because it helps them control their team's pipeline, productivity, and development like they've been doing it for 20+ years.

Were looking for hungry and talented full-stack engineers to help us.


 - Green field development. An opportunity to build things from scratch and own large parts of the stack. - Real world problems. The kind that companies pay $100K+ to solve. - Experienced founders. This is our 2nd startup - our first was acquired in 2013. - Well-funded and well-run. Series A, low burn. Capital efficiency is important to us. - Product market fit. Companies already using it every day.

 - Very early. Very uncertain. - Were not going to match your offer from Facebook - No free lunches, gym memberships, massages, etc. - We play Yacht Rock on Fridays.
Our application pulls from a customers existing CRM and uses a whole mess of buzz-words to perform our magic (cue shameless buzzword dump):

 - Python/Django (Python3, Celery) - Machine learning (scikit-learn, numpy) - Thick frontend client (ES6/Babel/React/Redux)

Teralytics | Software Engineer, Systems Engineer, Data Scientist | Singapore | ONSITE, VISA, Full-Time and Intern, https://www.teralytics.net/jobs

As stated, hiring for above roles, and for interns. Our systems engineer job is not listed there so feel free to contact me directly for this or recruiting.asia@teralytics.ch. Salaries are extremely competitive and perks are good but we're also extremely selective. For interns, the work and environment is very good: I'm ex-Microsoft, and I'd say it's better than the MS intern experience in those regards (we can't match their intern salaries though).

We are an analytics company (ETH Zurich spinoff) that operates across a very large swath of the problem space: integrating deep into the "sensors," through the processing and analytics, and then the visualization. We are solving some hard problems around realtime streaming, geospatial, and predictive analytics and work closely with customers to improve how data-driven cities and businesses work. The Singapore technical team is small (approximately 10) but growing in size and capabilities. Unfortunately, our work and opportunities are outpacing us, so come and help us!

I've been here for over a year and we've grown a ton since I joined, but we still have a tight-knit, incredibly smart group of engineers. We have many interesting problems as well in machine learning, service architecture, mobile, desktop and web user experiences and in many other areas.

We would love more engineers, up and down the stack, and anywhere on the generalist <-> specialist spectrum. We use pretty cutting-edge tech (React, React-Native for mobile, TypeScript + Node for backend), but we're a lot more interested in engineering chops than any particular tech skills.

Southeast USA including: Texas (Austin and San Antonio), Virginia (Arlington and Dulles), Alabama (Huntsville), Florida (beach east of Melbourne), South Carolina (Greenville), Maryland (Annapolis Junction), and possibly others, all ONSITE. Citizenship is a job requirement.

We do emulators, JIT, hypervisors, stuff like valgrind, debuggers, manual disassembly, binary static analysis, parsers, and assembly. We write our own low-level tools, frequently in C99 to run on Linux. We also use IDA Pro, qemu, Simics, JTAG debuggers, gdb, Coverity, KlocWork, LLVM, and so on. Easily transferable skills include those related to compilers, kernel drivers, embedded RTOSes, vectorizing, firmware, VxWorks BSP development, symbolic execution, boot loaders, software verification, concolic testing, abstract interpretation, satisfiability (SAT, SMT) solvers, and decompilers. We work with more than a dozen architectures including PowerPC/ppc/POWER, MIPS, ARMv8/Thumb2/AArch64, x86-64/x64/Intel, DSPs, and microcontrollers. We hire from no-degree to PhD. Common degrees include Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Mathematics.

Current Interview Process: quick chat, engineering phone screen, onsite, team lunch, reference check, offer.

HomeLight is creating the best way for home buyers and sellers to find the best real estate agent using objective data about real estate agent performance. We're continually working on our matching algorithm (machine learning & data science) and currently working on some big initiatives to improve how home buyers and sellers and agents interact with homelight and with each other (mobile apps, new product features, etc.)

We're a small team of 7 engineers. Our stack is Ruby on Rails(4.2), and Postgresql(9.6) hosted on Heroku. The front end is using Ember. We've got reasonable test coverage with rspec.

Tasks are reasonably defined, and its normal to push back on tasks to determine the business value in our work. We're not just a feature factory, we care about the value delivered in what we build. As engineers, we have an enormous amount of latitude in the implementation details of our work. Because we're small, you're going to need to know the full stack. You're going to have to write javascript here, sorry.

I applied via the link on the careers page, but if you have any questions, you can email me at evan@homelight.com. When you apply, make sure to mention you saw this hackernews post.

I've built half a dozen startups, including Writely (aka Google Docs), and I can honestly say that Scalyr is my favorite so far. We're building an amazing team, users rave about our product, and things are taking off we're closing seven-figure contracts and revenue grew 5x last year. And we're doing it on a sane, 40-hour, daily-team-hike, Fridays-at-home schedule. We're pre-series-A, but in many ways playing like a series B company, so this is a chance to get the best of both worlds -- early-stage equity and impact, with later-stage compensation and stability; plus a very strong team for peering or mentorship.

Backend Engineer: We've built a NoSQL data engine from scratch that searches text at 750 GB/second. How'd you like to help us scale and optimize to multiple TB/second?

Agent Engineer: you'll own our lean, mean data collection agent. 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.

Customer Success Engineer: our customers are engineers. We're looking for someone with lightweight ops experience and good communication skills to help them get the most out of Scalyr. A great opportunity to join the team and work your way up the engineering ladder.

Lambda University | Computer Science Instructor | https://lambdauniversity.com | REMOTE or BAY AREA, CA

We're developing a new model of higher education that aligns the success of the school with the success of students. We select a small number of students from a large batch of applicants and invest in them by training them for free. When the student is employed in their selected field field, we take a small percentage of their income for two years.

Right now the focus is on computer science. We're overrun with demand from some of the brightest people you'll ever meet, and our acceptance rate is far below that of Stanford or Harvard. We're looking for people who love teaching and love software/computing to help take our small groups instruction to the next level, always keeping quality high.

We are a small team, profitable, growing very quickly, and determined to keep quality high before all else.

- Write a genetic algorithm program in MATLAB to process protein crystallography data.

- Fix a Java/PHP/SQLite webpage that someone wrote a few years ago and is now crashing.

The projects vary greatly, and you will have the opportunity to work on large and small projects in a variety of languages. We are putting an emphasis on candidates that have some lab/research work. A CS Degree is not required. I am a mechanical engineer by schooling and I fit in well.

Our platform is currently live in SF and NYC. We work with over 300 awesome companies. Quality is key to our model -- we turn away one of every two companies that have tried to join the network. We've proudly bootstrapped and profitable.

As we scale, well focus on building tools for candidates to organize, search, and discover new job opportunities. In our view of the future, job candidates dont receive as much unsolicited outreach from recruiters. Job search is organized, and talented candidates have more high-quality options.

We use Python/Flask, Javascript/Node.js, PostgreSQL, Elastic Search, and AWS. We're also working on a project in Ruby/Sinatra. And we're big supporters of open source.

Kolide | C++ Software Engineer on osquery | Fully Remote | Fulltime | https://kolide.com/osquery

Hey there! Mike Arpaia here, a Co-Founder of a host endpoint company called Kolide (https://kolide.com) and the original creator of the open-source security software osquery (https://github.com/facebook/osquery) which I put together as a solution to Facebook's HIDS problem when I worked there as an engineer.

Kolide is building a team of software engineers to work on and contribute to the osquery codebase, which is an open-source C++ project. Open sourced by Facebook in 2014, osquery is an operating system instrumentation and analysis framework which solves a variety of monitoring and instrumentation use-cases. Since its release, osquery has become one of the most popular open source security software projects on all of GitHub with over 9,000 stars and 1,000 forks.

The osquery engineering team at Kolide, led by me, the progenitor of the osquery project, will focus on improving the open source codebase for all users of osquery. Engineers will work closely with members of the core osquery team, osquery community members, and other Kolide employees to prioritize features and collaborate on development. Due to the distributed nature of the osquery open source project, this is a completely remote role; Candidates should feel comfortable working independently in a distributed fashion.

The following attributes would be true of an ideal candidate:

- Extensive experience writing C++

- Deep knowledge of the operating system internals of macOS, Linux or Windows

- A passion for open source software and community

- Strong writing skills and the ability to express ideas via project proposals and design documents

- Previous contributions to osquery are definitely a plus, but not strictly required

If this sounds interesting to you, shoot me an email at mike@kolide.com!

kristopolous' console script is a godsend. But, sometimes I like to just search for keywords without filtering others out. Ctrl+f does the job but has issues such as losing my place after scrolling a bit, or not showing the searched terms anymore if I hit back after clicking a link, or not allowing for multiple keywords.

The following script simply highlights the word to make it a bit easier to find. Also works well when combined with kristopolous'. The output is the number of posts matching each input string.

 // usage: highlight('react', 'node', 'graphql', '$') // output: [57, 29, 4, 19] function highlight(/* args */) { return Array.prototype.slice.call(arguments).map(function(keyword) { var matches = 0; Array.prototype.forEach.call(document.querySelectorAll('tr.athing.comtr div.comment'), function(e) { if (e.innerText.search(new RegExp(keyword === '$' ? '\\$' : keyword, 'i')) === -1) return; ++matches; e.innerHTML = e.innerHTML.replace(new RegExp(keyword === '$' ? '\\$' : keyword, 'ig'), '<span style="background-color:#0095ff;color:#fff;">' + keyword.toUpperCase() + '</span>') }); return matches; }) }

The successful applicant will be involved in further developing the iobio framework (client libraries and server), designing and building new web apps, and creating new visualizations.

Neighborly.com | Senior Data Engineer (Apache Spark & Scala) | SF or NYC

Howdy, neighbor! I think we have a pretty special opportunity for someone with a strong Scala track record and ~1+ year production experience with Apache Spark.

Full job posting here on Lever: https://jobs.lever.co/neighborly/3148b5cf-ec48-4716-8b20-bd9...

Speaking from my personal perspective, here is some background on why I think Neighborly is an awesome place for civic-minded, world-positive, impact-seeking senior engineers: We're changing the game of Public Finance, putting the Public back where they belong. We're a unique company in the intersection of FinTech and GovTech, with a lot of very interesting data problems to solve, the outcome of which becomes a much more optimized system for communities to fund critical civic improvement projects responsibly through a better municipal bond financing process.

Our core business model aims to democratize the municipal bond market. Issuers (cities, states, counties, school districts, special districts, etc) will one day be able to borrow more cheaply, quickly, in more convenient precise amounts, with more of the city's nominal debt payments flowing back into the community. Investors get direct access to a relatively stable investment product for which the positive impact is a known quantity.

We have a substantial investment in our data platform already that we're very proud of, but we'd like to hire top-talent from the Apache Spark community to focus on taking it to the next level. If that's you, and our mission resonates, reach out to us on Lever, or if you'd prefer a more casual conversation, email me at jay@neighborly.com

Connexity | Santa Monica, CA or Camarillo, CA | Full-Time | Onsite

Join a small, tightly-knit Data Science team as we transform our data assets into valuable business products. Although this group of 4 has a great deal of industry experience, we've only worked together in this capacity for about a year. This means that there's still a lot of opportunity and green-field work ahead of us. The position could be described as a Sr. Data Scientist or Machine Learning Engineer. We work with billions of records per day and small hundreds of thousands of (messy!) features. We primarily use Scala/Spark and Python, but we employ R, Ruby, plain old SQL and other tools on a regular basis. We're very conscious of the need to keep our DataSci YARN cluster big enough to let us run a lot of experimentation (currently 110+ nodes, 3000+ vcores and ~12 TB memory).

We'd like to find someone familiar with Bayesian systems, Random Forest and other classification. Experience in ad-tech, e-commerce or online retail is a plus, but we strongly favor hiring someone with the right qualities that transcend mere familiarity.

More than anything we value sound judgement. It's great if you have loads of tools in in your tool belt, but you really have to know when it makes sense to use them.

As you get involved with research or optimization work, we want to have confidence that you'll have the right intuition about what questions to pursue and what questions to defer. With our high transaction volume, hundreds of unique models in production and hundreds of thousands of potential features, discernment is an essential virtue. We'll always have 5x more questions and curiosities than we'll have time to chase down. We're looking for that person whose judgement is guided by experience and possesses a knack for uncovering valuable, actionable insights.

Within our team I lean strongly toward the engineering side of the spectrum, but I'd be happy to have a conversation about our work. dlarsen@connexity.com If you're more comfortable going the typical HR route, I can probably streamline the first phases of communication.

Y Combinator-Backed People.ai is Hiring in Engineering, Sales and Customer Support to Help Us Build AI for Better Team Management

People dont quit their jobs, they quit their managers. Everyone has had a manager that makes them want to call in sick. Everyone has had a manager who regularly forces their team to chase their own tail doing meaningless work.

Why? Because most managers manage their teams blindly. They don't hire, coach and promote based on data. Instead, they make decisions based on their gut. These decisions are made because managers dont have the data to make smarter, more informed decisions when it comes to managing.

Not anymore. At People.ai were helping managers make decisions about their team based on data, not intuition. Were starting with sales teams because theyre a particularly notorious black box. No manager today can definitively say what makes a top performer better than a low performer. People.ai is solving this dilemma by making sales management transparent and building the worlds first predictive sales management platform, powered by AI.

People.ai was part of the YC S16 batch, launched the product in July of this year and was the first company in the batch to raise a Series A. Less than three months after our launch were already being used by sales teams at 50+ blue chip companies including Rubrik, Gainsight, Mulesoft and Optimizely.

We have a 10+ person team and are actively looking for Senior Front-end and Back end Engineers to join us. Our team needs someone with full-stack/backend development experience as well as a deep background in Python, Linux, AWS, REST APIs and machine learning. Salesforce API experience is a plus!

Our Sales team is looking for Enterprise Account Executives and Sales Development Representatives. A background in on-demand/SaaS, CRM, SFA or marketing software sales is strongly preferred. You must have a proven record of consistently meeting and exceeding quota in a fast-paced, competitive sales environment.

Our Customer Success team is looking for a Customer Support Manager. This person will be responsible for managing customer support requests via email, chat and phone and helping to build a world-class customer support organization. Prior experience with Zendesk, Intercom, Jira, Salesforce Service Cloud, etc. is a plus!

This isnt just another job. Your input will be incredibly important as were currently shifting from to a microservices architecture. Youll have an opportunity to make a major impact on a number of our microservices and ML/big data infrastructure as we are turning our MVP into a massively scalable product.

It seems to me that the world would be overall a better place if FB had sold to Yahoo. Yahoo would have screwed it up (like AOL with Myspace) and there would be more competition in the space all around. Monopolies are good for the investors, not for the customers.

Some genuinely encouraging thoughts here - very interesting to my relationship with Inventions vs. Long-Form Writing:

>Paul : The biggest one is made-up ideas. The best startups come from personal experience. It was something you or someone you know needed. Occasionally, Ill ask a company, Why do you think is a good idea? And theyll say, Oh, I read an article in TechCrunch. You have to understand it at a deep level. It cant just be something you read.

I also like people who get things done. If youve been working on your startup for two years and have nothing to show, thats a pretty bad sign. Ive discovered that most people are really good at finding obstacles. I dont fund these people.

One thing I've learned, over five years plus of developing Inventions, Pitches, and the occasional Prototype, is that there's a really big realization that Angel Investors / PE-type Investors don't want small businesses to figure out:

If your idea is good, you can obtain a patent, and afford to take a loan <$50,000 to go from "Prototype-to-Trade Show Ready" then you don't need Investors. You don't need "wisdom and guidance" aiming for a quick ramp-up and exit. You don't need to think in Quarterly Capitalism terms. And, most importantly, you don't need to dilute your control whatsoever[1].

For a while I've caught some whiffs that the Investing Realm is quite a bit more "Me Too" risk averse than often portrayed. Very similar to the Music Industry. Labels don't want interesting life story pieces, they want bubblegum they can market to kids with some discretionary money to burn. Thus, I take a lot of the recent "Start Up" culture with a grain of salt, because the time, effort, and study it takes to create a genuinely valuable idea basically points to starting a "Traditional Small Business" moreso than any super-duper-evolution-in-funding-or-growth. YMMV of course.

[1] It does help to study both success stories, failures, and Public Slap Fights (Cruise, Otto); while I've solicited in the past, I've cooled to the idea and instead plan to go my own Patent-Prototype-Promote business model.

PB was the first investor in 7 Cups. I'm thankful for all of the ways that he helped us. He is very good at motivating founders. I can't all the way understand how he does it, but it is remarkable. I think a big part of it is helping people face reality directly. i.e., he alludes to this in the interview when he says most people are good at finding obstacles (i.e., excuses) and that he doesn't fund them. He is good at keeping you honest so that you do not delude yourself into making fake progress or going down wrong turns. Another way of saying this is that he helps you minimize denial. Quick story:

I had been working on 7 Cups for about a month prior to getting to YC. I had a home page up, which I was pretty excited about. The core idea of the chat/voice support wasn't yet live. I showed him the website and wanted to show him some of the segments we wanted to focus on (parents of children with disabilities, veterans etc.). He quickly asked - have you got the actual product in front of users yet? I tried to dodge the question, talk more about the site etc. He repeated the question. I had to honestly answer that no we hadn't yet released it. He was like, okay go do that and report back next week. I was stalling because, on some level, I was afraid that it wouldn't work as well as I hoped. We pushed through, launched it, and learned a ton in that next week. For example, we learned that voice was too intimate and people preferred messaging.

And that basic cycle happened over and over again. Like there might be things that sound right or are even partially right, but if they are not the most direct thing that is going to help you learn and make a product people want, then it is probably not a good use of your time.

Love this:

>>Larry Page assigned the project to me. He said, Build some kind of email something and chose me because I had an interest in email.

This is how you know you've found an awesome developer - someone who only needs to be given only a high-level vision of what is needed, and who can then run with it, fill in the details, and deliver something more awesome than you thought possible.

Reminds me of the famous "Message to Garcia" essay from way back in 1899: (http://www.benning.army.mil/infantry/199th/ocs/content/pdf/m...)

Or, a more current parable found in a post by Benjamin Hardy(1):

A certain farmer had become old and ready to pass his farm down to one of his two sons. When he brought his sons together to speak about it, he told them: The farm will go to the younger son.

The older son was furious! What are you talking about?! he fumed.

The father sat patiently, thinking.

Okay, the father said, I need you to do something for me. We need more stocks. Will you go to Cibis farm and see if he has any cows for sale?

The older son shortly returned and reported, Father, Cibi has 6 cows for sale.

The father graciously thanked the older son for his work. He then turned to the younger son and said, I need you to do something for me. We need more stocks. Will you go to Cibis farm and see if he has any cows for sale?

The younger son did as he was asked. A short while later, he returned and reported, Father, Cibi has 6 cows for sale. Each cow will cost 2,000 rupees. If we are thinking about buying more than 6 cows, Cibi said he would be willing to reduce the price 100 rupees. Cibi also said they are getting special jersey cows next week if we arent in a hurry, it may be good to wait. However, if we need the cows urgently, Cibi said he could deliver the cows tomorrow.

The father graciously thanked the younger son for his work. He then turned to the older son and said, Thats why your younger brother is getting the farm.

I've heard this sentiment repeated a lot ("Everyone thought AirBnB was a horrible idea"), but I honestly can't imagine why, and it makes me think AirBnB must have just had a bad initial pitch deck. At the time AirBnB was founded, Couchsurfing was already really popular, and HomeAway had received some gargantuan investment rounds. Is it really that much of a stretch to say people would want a safe, secure way to rent out private accommodations?

Jasper : Sam Altman has said that the only criterion Y Combinator uses to evaluate applying companies is, Can this be a $10 billion plus company? like Airbnb and Dropbox. While this model works great for a fund, there is an Early Exits movement that suggests individual entrepreneurs have a much higher likelihood of success when they raise less capital and target exits in the $20 million range. What do you think this view?

Paul : The math does not support this strategy but if other investors want to try it thats fine. Also, it is not just returns we are looking for but really impactful companies. When you sell too early you dont realize the full potential.

Besides, what is the real "impact" of Facebook? Which impact are we talking about? To the shareholder? To society? If he refers to the latter, I can think of no way to measure the "impact".

This decision set a terrible precedent.

It made it acceptable for a company to deliver "tailored advertising" by reading all your emails.

But I guess there are few alternatives to the ad-supported business model on the web facilitated by the vast collection of personal data.

Still kind of sucks, though.

graycat 1 hour ago 0 replies      
Paul has some good observations, but IMHO what he has so far has just been lucky due to the general potential of Moore's law and the Internet. IMHO, with the astoundingly high growth rates of Moore's law and the Internet over, his ideas won't work now.

E.g., he wrote the first version of G-mail in a day. Okay. We can't expect more Googles from such efforts.

Paul, YC, and Silicon Valley have been taken in from their successes, their Sand Hill Road echo chamber, and their own Kool-Aid.

Instead of such influences, we have some much better examples of doing big things from the all-time, unique, world-class, grand champion of really big successes from really big technology, the US DoD, with high irony, what got Silicon Valley going, along with Dean Terman. For runner up, we have Bell Labs with the transistor, solid state lasers, and optical fibers. These successes were not done in a day. And with high irony, they were not risky, that is, the batting average was really high, much higher than VCs in Silicon Valley.

Paul is making another big, fundamental mistake, really implicit in the subject and title of the interview, what can be learned from 200 investments: He does have some good lessons, but broadly what he explains is very much the wrong approach.

Why? Because for his $20 billion criterion, necessarily he is looking for really exceptional, rare events.There's no hope at good lessons for such successes, such rare events, except just to count on luck, when looking at 200 projects where all or nearly all were just mediocre.

Yes, these events are so rare and difficult to do that maybe most of them, that is, the Googles, Facebooks, etc., were more likely from luck, Moore's law, and the Internet than sufficiently good work with little or no good luck. He's just notlooking at approaches that are goodat detecting the desired rare events.

Instead, it really is possible to conceive of, plan, and execute really big, earth changing work, with quite high reliability. E.g., did I mention the US DoD and Bell Labs? Uh, there's no way to see from Paul's lessons from the 200 startups just how the US DoD and Bell Labs were so successful. E.g., those organizations didn't need 200 rolls of the dice to get the Manhattan Project, GPS, stealth and the F-117, the SR-71, Keyhole (the DoD's Hubble, aimed at the earth instead of space), the transistor, solid state lasers, or optical fibers. And now we can include RSA, WMAP, LIGO, LHC, etc. -- no 199 failures to get one big success. Indeed, in all that work, nearly no failures. Also include the Human Genome project and the work of Craig Venter -- worked great, right away.

But the conception, planning, and execution of such low risk, high payoff projects are not illustrated by Paul's, YC's, or Silicon Valley's investment or project evaluation approaches.

Uh, hint: What Paul is describing isavailable to middle school students. So, we can set aside all educationand research past middle school?

SMTP, HotMail, Gmail -- those were simple projects, flashes in the pan from luck and the rapid growth of Moore's law and the Internet, and do not illustrate the approach to $20 billion for the future.

Uh, early in e-mail, the software I had put one icon on my desktop for each e-mail message sent or received. I could wait for minutes for a single e-mail message to appear on my desktop. Total brain dead bummer. So, I got out the SMTP RFCs, read a little, use the interpretive language Rexx that had the TCP/IP calls, to write my own e-mail. For reading, writing e-mail, I used just my still favorite text editor -- KEdit. For converting to/from base 64 for the MIME attachments, I wrote some code in Rexx. My e-mail had a file that permitted nicknames and groups. It worked great. It put all the e-mail I sent/received, just as it was sent/received, exactly, in a file -- appended to the file witha delimiter line after each e-mail message. When the file got over10 MB, I started another one. I stillhave all the files, and finding messages in the files is easy. I wrote all of it in just one afternoon except did the base 64 stuff in another afternoon. My e-mail set up was good enough that I had a cute feature: In files of other work, I'd put just the date line from an e-mail message as a link to that message, and one keystroke in KEdit would cause KEdit to get and display that e-mail message. Sure, the date lines do not have to be distinct, but I never found a duplicate! I was not lucky enough toget rich from it, but I used it for about 10 years, until I got a copy of Outlook 2003. I stillwish I knew the syntax of theOutlook PST files or whatever theyare called so that I couldimplement links to those.So, really in some ways, my littleone afternoon project remainsbetter than Outlook 2003. Writing basic client side e-mail is dirt simpleand no big accomplishment inany sense.

We don't want to be duped intobelieving that the last $100 million lottery winner hassome really great ideas!

In comparison with the DoD, etc. work,the work of Paul, YC, SV, etc. is, really, brain-dead. For more, Paul's approaches are not what got us to 14 nm and won't get us to 10 or 7 nm.

Uh, NASA and, IIRC, JPL, launched some equipment into space and eventually sent back some astounding pictures of -- sit down for this one -- Pluto. Up close. First time. No 200 failures for the one success.

But, wait, there's more: With the current power and prices of computing and the Internet, there is a very special case of information technology. There we take in bits, manipulate them, and put out bits. The goal is to have the output bits be darned valuable, well over the $20 billion criterion.

Then, what is the key to evaluating such work? The team? Personal need? The attitude? The determination? Their desire to get the main work done in a day? Their grit? Their novelty? Their interview impression? Other imponderables and tea-leaf reading?Hand shake style? Eye contact? "Taking the measure" of the person? And may I have the envelope please? [Drum roll}. And the winner is ....

I'll keep that a secret (hint: None of the above.).

I'm glad to have this pointed out to me. It's so "obvious" now that live butterflies don't look that way, I'll never not notice this now. It's similar to all the tricks video media uses for aesthetics and common familiarity: gun cocking noises, computer hacking images, punch sound effects, and the like. It also remind me of location specific tricks, such as how the pyramids of Giza, Egypt are shown in pictures, or how wildlife photographers sometimes do staged photoshoots.

I think it's a very good thing to be aware of this. So much of our information is received through indirect means, how many things do we watch on video without understanding how the image and sound has been enhanced? I've been surprised before to see something in person and realize the media representation is not accurate.

Fascinating! I have a dozen dead butterflies, pinned in frames at home (I really like http://www.bugunderglass.com/ if anyone's interested in unique home decorating -- I'm not associated with them in any way, but I've been buying their bugs for almost 6 years now!) and I used to raise moths from local caterpillars when I was a kid (you know, back before I found computers and actually played outside).

I knew the difference between dead and alive butterfly/moth wing positions, but never consciously noticed the difference in artistic depictions. Heck, I volunteer at the Boston Museum of Science every week and must have seen that Monarchs poster a hundred times without noticing.

Comparing art that "did it right" and art that "did it wrong" -- yeah, if you do it right, it looks a LOT more realistic and "lively," even if I wouldn't have known why before reading this article. I'll have to keep an eye out from now on!

I never noticed, but it is indeed a bit odd that most drawings show butterflies in a position they would't assume while living. Of course there is artistic freedom, but when a realistic display is intended, a more true-to life posture should be used.

> With a Snapdragon inside your PC, you'll no longer need Wi-Fi to fetch your latest e-mail and catch up on Twitter. Instead, you'll be able to get online wherever there's cellular connectivity.

I'm not buying the optimism, especially not in the US. The cellular data is still horribly limited. In Canada it is even worse. The "unlimited" plan is surging back, but it has automatic throttling at varying points.

Oh and since we're talking Microsoft and Windows, you can't control data usage. Windows 10 uploads your personal information at unknown intervals and downloads ads and sponsored apps without consent.

What good is faster cell data with horrible data limits and an OS with a poor concept of when data is permissible even in the "Enterprise" edition?

I look forward to learning more about this product. I love that we're moving non-x86 into mainstream consumer products like this (and not limited to low-end chromebooks, e.g.).

ARM SoCs lack the backward compatible x86 BIOS-style bootstrap. This is great because it's kinda crazy to think about booting into stuff like MBR, real mode, etc in 2017. But this is bad because without good standards it's really tricky to have a generic installer for another OS. Also, all or nearly all ARM SoCs have signed bootloaders. Great: less fear of a rootkit/virus hiding in my system. Awful: often used to protect subsidies or other business model hijinks; can't install an alternate OS.

Imagine the same benefits of ipad for business without having to license a private app store from Apple. Imagine the cost per unit is lower and you can use .Net without the pain of Xamarin involved to roll out software as regular win32 binaries instead of jumping through hoops to produce an ios app in a .Net based business.

flavio81 3 hours ago 0 replies      
I think this is GREAT news, because it implies the following.

a. - Intel and AMD losing their pseudo-monoply on PC/laptop chips, perhaps enabling bringing some prices down.

b. - Mainstream PCs abandoning the old x86 (+IA64, AMD64) instruction set for a more modern instruction set which (i guess) enables more modern, more power-efficient architectures.

but much more exciting than the above is that...

c. - The jump to a more power-efficient CPU will enable me to have a nice desktop PC with, say, 128 cores, and with no extravagant cooling system or ridiculously high power consumption (I need to pay the power bills, anything that will be on for at least 8 hours a day will be watched for power consumption.). I know that there are already ways to take advantage of GPUs, but they are for specific operations. A desktop PC with a huge lot of cores will bring more generalized performance improvement.

And TRUE hardcore multitasking...

d. - This will push all vendors and Open Source projects to improve on their compiler support for that architecture.

If you are part of the cult-like group that dreams of a future Surface Phone, which includes myself, this is an interesting milestone. If such a device has been in the works in the past, Intel's cancellation of Morganfield (Broxton SoC for phones) was a huge set-back.

Microsoft pursuing x86 emulation on ARM, while certainly of interest to low-cost traditional form-factors such as laptops and tablets, is also interesting because it reinvigorates the idea of a Surface Phone. Of course, the reality remains to be seen.

For those unfamiliar, the concept that many of us imagine for a Surface Phone includes an evolution of today's Windows 10 Mobile Continuum feature that, as with Ubuntu Phones and some fringe Android devices, allows a phone to act as a full computer when docked to a keyboard, mouse, and display. While Continuum exists today on devices such as the Lumia 950 and HP Elite x3, it is limited to Windows' "Universal" applications, and does not work with x86 or even older Windows Phone applications. Still, the appeal of a single-device lifestyle is considerable and many people would love to simplify the technology in their life to a phone that is also their desktop/mobile computer. Many of the youngest generation already do this by simply conceding (willingly or unknowingly) they will never enjoy the advantages of computing with large monitors, keyboards, and mice.

In order for a single device to successfully fulfill these multiple roles, it needs to be able to run real applications and not just in a "enlarged phone OS" fashion seen on devices such as the iPad Pro.

If a Surface Phone were to materialize, I would expect Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 to become more converged than they are today. When using Continuum on a Lumia 950, Windows 10 Mobile is doing a respectable job of impersonating a Windows 10 desktop; but it's a veneer. For a Surface Phone to be a viable computer, I think it would start with Windows 10 (full version for ARM) and adapt downward to the phone form-factor, rather than today's opposite of a phone-tailored operating system adapting upward. Yes, W10 and W10M are very similar today, but a SP device would, I feel, push them closer together.

Of course, there is no genuine credible news on such as device, and Microsoft has dodged questions, even downplaying the likelihood of such a device. There seems to be a widespread opinion that one should not even try to build momentum in today's phone market, which I feel is shockingly myopic and pessimistic. Of course it's not a simple matter to establish a foothold in mobile, but previous efforts, while half-hearted at times were nevertheless making (slow) progress until Microsoft pulled the rug out from beneath Windows Phone 8. The biggest challenge to a Surface Phone would be bigger than technology: it would be a test of Microsoft's commitment to the idea.

You can encrypt all you like. It won't help.

Suppose you encrypt all your SMTP/SUBMIT traffic. If your upstream is a commercial provider, then they will be subject to subpoenas. If you run your own upstream, then watching who it connects to will often be sufficient to gather metadata of interest.

Consider TLS. Before you can use it you must have used DNS. Today all DNS resolution goes in the clear. So game over right there. Eventually your client's DNS communication with a shared recursive resolver will not be in the clear, but the operator of that resolver will be subject to subpoenas, so game still over. Let's say we did deploy DJB's encrypted DNS solution. Well, you can still see which domains people are talking to, roughly, at least as long as they don't share nameservers, and if they do... You can see where this is going. Now let's say you did get DNS resolution securely anyways, well, now you have to connect to some IP address, and if it's not hosting many services, then game over, and if it is hosting many services, then SNI will be game over anyways (TLS 1.3 requires SNI). SNI cannot be encrypted.

The problem really is that metadata can't really be encrypted.

Mind you, criminals are defeated by data encryption -- mostly anyways.

And forcing governments to use subpoenas does mean increasing the cost of metadata gathering. Plus there won't be infinite retention requirements, perhaps. So, encryption does help somewhat, which means we must do it -- it's just not a complete solution.

The right to encrypt is the right to privacy.

Communications on the Internet are public by default; this is something that human civilization never experienced before. If you want to make your conversation or your behavior private, you have to encrypt it.

But there were many other things that human civilization never experienced before, and we adapted.

Right to encryption is, indeed, an essential natural right. People who deny it are the same people who think that everybody should have a government-supplied monitoring camera in every room of every home, and fail to understand what's wrong with it.

> When handing out references of something bound with let mut, why do i need to do &mut instead of just & ?

Sometimes, you still want to immutably borrow a mutable variable. Otherwise, you wouldn't be able to have multiple references to a variable declared with `mut`, which would be an unnecessary limitation.

EDIT: Here's an example of something that wouldn't otherwise work if borrows of mutable variables were implicitly mutable:

 struct Point { x: i32, y: i32, } fn add(p1: &Point, p2: &Point) -> Point { let x = p1.x + p2.x; let y = p1.y + p2.y; Point { x: x, y: y } } fn main() { let mut some_point = Point { x: 1, y: 1 }; some_point.x = 2; // `some_point` is borrowed twice here, which wouldn't be possible if the borrows were mutable. let other_point = add(&some_point, &some_point); println!("({}, {})", other_point.x, other_point.y); }

To me his proposed syntax looks like the exact contrary use case: pattern-match on something that's a reference.

EDIT: And that's actually the case.


In that case it works because `w` is copy. For non-copy types, it prevents moving out of the borrow (as expected).

Calls C code with a similar syntax than doing it with Scala

Rust allows you more control on how to use your memory allocation. (Or forces you to take control).


My own take on Rust (haven't used the language yet, only looked at specs) is that it appears to be a more "sane", state-of-the-art version of C++, streamlined, without all the cruft and all the legacy. And with a much better object oriented system based on Traits.

More specifically, we search the Ethereum blockchain for contracts whose bytecode (which is always stored on the blockchain) is similar to that of some known Ponzi scheme. We use the normalized Levenshtein distance (NLD) as a measure of similarity between two bytecode files.


This search resulted in further 55 potential new Ponzi schemes, not included in our original collection of 137 contracts.

It's so awesome that it's possible to do this and that it actually works!

The paper points out that many of the Ponzi contracts on Etherium have exploitable bugs. Some can be induced to compute too much and thus run out of "gas", aborting. Some allow an attacker to change the party who gets the fees. Some can be stalled out with a suitably constructed transaction.

Making Etherium contracts a full byte code execution engine was a big mistake. That form is too bug-prone and led to the DAO debacle. It should have been something simpler, such as a decision table.[1] That simple declarative form can handle most useful business logic, but can't loop. It's always decidable and is easy to hand-check.

I think the vast majority of coins and tokens are near worthless. People invest in them because other people invest in them, in hopes of seeing returns like early investors in Bitcoin and Ethereum did. There will be a correction at some point.

But that's not to say that a blockchain with functionality aside from store of value (like Ethereum) couldn't pan out and enable a whole new universe of use cases for trade, company formation and ownership, and contracts in general, on a global, super-fast, completely automatable scale. It could be yuge - but since no-one knows what will happen and it's still early days, the current valuation of Ethereum is also highly speculative. If it works out though - maybe the current valuation of Ethereum will look cheap in retrospective.

All cryptocurrencies are ponzi schemes. The early adopters get richer because more people come into the market later. Eventually the increasing values due to more interest will have to stop, whether because people lose interest or because everybody's already in the pool. At that time whether the late comers are totally screwed or just don't make a profit like the early adopters depends on what exactly happens.

Cryptocurrencies are the baseball cards of a new generation of wealthy libertarians (they have no inherent value like a useful commodity, and they have no backing of a powerful government. They just have value because some people decided they are valuable.) How badly the next financial crisis effects those people will determine how much cryptocurrency values are adjusted.

This article in few lines lists key differences between PNaCl and WebAssembly:

---WebAssembly defines no new platform APIs other than some APIs for loading and linking WebAssembly code, relying on standards-based Web APIs for everything else. WebAssembly differs from asm.js by defining a bytecode format with some new operations JS doesn't have, so some spec work was required (and has been done!). Like asm.js, WebAssembly application call-stacks are maintained by the JS VM, outside the memory addressable by the application, which reduces the exploitability of application bugs. (Though, again like asm.js and unlike PNaCl, the compiler is trusted.)---

People seem way too optimistic about web assembly.

The elephant in the room is download size. A wasm photoshop, even if it works and performs well, is still a multi-gigabyte "web page". The browser is in no way set up to handle that.

Even simple things will be huge compared to javascript webpage. Let's say you write your todo app in Python with Qt bindings. Sure, wasm lets you run it on the web. You'll just have to ship Qt, the python interpreter, low-level graphics rendering code, shims for system calls in the standard library ... overall you'll end up way, way heavier than the javascript + DOM version. Probably 100MB or something.

wasm as it's implemented is going to have a very narrow band of usefulness. Basically, isolated computational modules (e.g. a physics simulation), and games. The games won't be, like, "Call of Duty on the web", they'll be little flash-type games with not too many assets. Creators will have to put a lot of effort into asset loading and compression to get around browser limitations.

Yes you could compile C to asm.js, but it would still be compiling it to JS at the end of the day. WebAssembly is completely different in that regard.

Go or Rust for example. Also, I watched a talk from DConf and saw that D is adding memory safety as well. You need to mark any part of code doing pointer arithmetic as "system code" or something like that.

I think it's a shame one couldn't have happened before the other. I wish something like D or Go or Nim or something else would have won. Then there would be this effort to get that language fast on the browser.

One of the most heartbreaking thing about the massacre is not just that the mass murderers who ordered it were never held responsible but that today it barely even tarnishes their reputations, while the memory of their victims has been thoroughly suppressed.

Yet another example of "nothing matters like success." Since 1989, China has gone on to have great success - both economic and diplomatic, and is on the verge (if not already achieved) super-power status.

Because of that success, there is not much anybody can do about human rights abuses, so most people don't pay much attention to it.

Glad to see many reasonable comments here.

I have a vague memory of CCTV(official media, not your backyard CCTV) footage that depicting students and other people as mobs and killing soliders and burning the dead soldiers body.

Over the years, I got more and more piece of information about what happened at the time. clearly Chinese government is still trying to cover up what they did, and many exiles is still making up fake stories.

Nowadays in China people don't really care that much as you thought they would. The general consensus is that they are willing to forget about what happened and move on since it's full of opportunities right now and most people are more focused on getting a better life.

Not saying Chinese government was right they knew what happened was shameful and still forbids open news covfefe or discussion about it. In a booming economy it's just hard to mass up enough momentum to really get into a discussion about what happens in 1989, people just don't care anymore.

Its interesting that they used his english name, to protect his identity (and his family) but then go on to state his approximate age, that he runs restaurants, comes from Dalian, has an uncle in taiwan and migrated to the USA in 2012. Now then, I'm sure many people here could construct a database query to find the guy based on this information; the question is, does China have such a database? I know, they have a billion people but I hope some of this other information is obfuscated..

There's inevitably going to be people trying to justify the tragedy here by suggesting America is no better, pointing to instances such as the Kent State Shootings (Vietnam War protest).

For those people I'd like to point out that unlike China, America doesn't actively try to hide the negative sides of its history to the extent China does. I can read about the Kent State shootings all I want, along with the My Lai Massacre, the Trail of Tears, American involvement in Central America or the Middle East, etc..

It is in fact sad that China depends on the West to expose the darker sides of its past, and then claims Western negative bias whenever we do.

English Wikipedia still calls it the "Tiananmen Square protests of 1989" instead of the "Tiananmen Square Massacre" which is what pretty much everyone outside China calls it.

Markoff 1 hour ago 0 replies      
not sure what has this to do with hacking/IT, but

Tiananmen square massacre is mislabeled event, more people died in other parts of Beijing than average in the square, so more appropriate name would be Beijing massacre or what Chinese use 6/4.

People who died in square were pretty much suicidal since they were warned to leave and were told to leave even by their own protester leaders.

It should be always mentioned that wife of current hard liner president Mao 2.0 She Gin Pimp was singing at that time to murderers in square.

Overall not sure why are media so obsessed with this event were few thousand people died instead or mentioning millions who died thanks to glorified Mao. It's pretty good trade-off with DXP for most of the Chinese compared to trade-off gained with Mao.

Without wishing away the massacre or diminishing the kind of despotic environment that allows this to happen shouldn't the same kind of moral reprehension be expressed for the massive loss of life in the middle east from Libya, Iraq to Syria?

Yet we rarely see this in the same context as these actions continue to be pursued aggressively with little resistance from citizens in the west.

This seems to a very selective form of morality in practice more at ease judging others than examining our own actions.

Tiananmen is past and beyond but the loss of life and destruction of entire countries that puts millions of lives in disarray in the middle east is here and now and continues unabated yet there is little pressure on our leaders to cease these actions from citizens. No western leader is tainted with the kind of moral reprehension directed at the Chinese inspite of far more serious crimes against humanity. There is a definite dissonance here.

Ha, neat. I just got Plex DVR running a couple days ago.

I have both an OTA tuner and a CableCARD tuner. I don't really watch TV, but Comcast did the thing where it's cheaper to buy TV than to not, and I figured I'd rather have a CableCARD in a HDHomeRun box somewhere on my network instead of a set-top box in my living room.

Plex found my 120-odd cable channels, found all my broadcast channels, and it assembled a cohesive program guide with everything that I could conceivably watch with cover art and program descriptions and everything. I didn't have to register with any other services, or screw around with anything outside Plex itself. It just works; took maybe 15 minutes to go from "Plex" to "Plex is recording stuff".

My favorite feature is something I hooked up yesterday -- automated commercial removal via a postprocessing script that invokes https://github.com/erikkaashoek/Comskip.

Net is that anyone in my household can say "I want to watch this show", Plex will record it, strip ads, and make it available on any device, and it wasn't even a pain to set up. I'm quite happy.

>To summarize, weve just made Plex an even more awesome choice for the aspiring cord-cutter

I think it's a pretty neat feature for people who still find it hard to get away from TV for reasons like the live channels (sports). They can still make use of DVR features and watch stuff on Plex like they don't even have a tv subscription. Except in this case they still get the big bill every month and lovely commercials.

This is a great idea and an exciting feature, but I wish it came to a better product. I've run into endless bugs with Chromecast streaming and library management with Plex.

When I google solutions to these problems, I find threads up to two years old and end with Plex staff 1) not responding, or 2) saying, "We'll fix it eventually." And after two years they haven't!

That's not even counting how buggy or nonfunctional most channels are.

So glad I never bought the Plex Pass- wouldn't be right to give these people any more money when their product is so unreliable.

As first a MythTV, then SageTV and now NetFlix+Plex user, I have found the evolution of this tech both fascinating and frustrating.

I started a dozen or so years ago with MythTV and a Hauppauge tuner card, in an old PC directly connected to the (one) TV, and using an IR remote to control it. Over time I added another dual tuner card, and had both cable and OTA channels. MythTV had commercial skipping built in, and as I watched basically 100% recorded content, this was the beginning of me never seeing commercials.

Eventually I moved into a bigger house and got married, and we had two TVs. I didn't have a space PC, nor did I want to have an entire PC dedicated to being a client -- and at least at the time, using multiple MythTV clients with a single server was a bit clunky. After seeing the nice setup at a friend's, I jumped to SageTV and started using their media extender boxes (HD300)[1]. As a SageTV client they were better in every way: cheaper, less power, zero maintenance.

The HD300 remote even had programmable "TV power" and volume buttons, so since that was the only device connected it was also the only remote I needed. This feature has never been matched, and since moving away from SageTV I've always had either two remotes or had to program a Logitech Harmony remote.

I even moved the SageTV server PC to a utility room, disconnecting it from the TV and replaced it with an HD300.

SageTV still supported my tuner cards, and though not built-in, there were plugins to do commercial skipping. At some point in there I had also switched to a SiliconDust tuner to get digital channels.

Then, Google bought SageTV [2] and basically killed the core product.

It was around the same time my cable company was encrypting the last of all their digital channels (so my tuner cards were not usable anymore) and I was considering Netflix, so I started looking for a device to replace the HD300 that could still get SageTV content, but also Netflix, YouTube and whatever else.

I went through a bunch of sub-par solutions: BluRay player, Roku box, some other (pre-Android) streaming box and a Chromecast. I even resorted to low-power mini-ITX PC running Windows -- but the only way to get NetFlix was to use a keyboard and mouse. The Chromecast came close, but it was annoying to have to use a phone/laptop to view anything.

Everything just felt like it was getting worse and worse from my old SageTV setup. SageTV couldn't handle NetFlix, and even the SageTV YouTube app broke because YouTube's old API was finally discontinued.

We moved again, and had a child (and our TV viewing went down considerably), so really just use a single TV now. I eventually settled on using an Nvidia Shield (running AndroidTV), and it's better in basically every way except for OTA/cable/DVR stuff -- and so we entirely dropped that. I stuck the Chromecast on the other TV that we just use for the treadmill and can live with that.

There's a certain irony here. There's a lot more available on Digital OTA now (getting around encrypted digital cable), and now the current software that runs on modern hardware is able to do Live TV and DVR again... but is it relevant?

For one, I've spent 12 years without commercials, so without the automatic commercial skip even the DVR isn't that interesting to me. Secondly, I've replaced all my old media sources and/or stopped caring about the ones I couldn't replace.

It seems to me that DVR software, the client hardware and online media software/services have all had their own peaks and valleys over the years, and they've never all peaked at the same time.

The combination of HD300-style client hardware, with AndroidTV's online content apps, SageTV's LiveTV/DVR/commercial skipping, and the unencrypted digital cable of ~2010 would be my ideal -- I just don't ever see it happening ever again.

I've been using a Ceton Infinitv tuner with WMC and ServerWMC for the last 5 years. I use Kodi as a PVR interface and my interface for TV shows/ Movies on my file server. I don't see any advantage to Plex, you need to pay for the service and it's a PIA to setup and configure. Once configured, don't plan on using the computer you setup the Media server on as it is always busy/ bogged down scanning files and transcoding video.

If we're talking methods/tooling, I'd throw Heapy in the pile. It's a PITA to get set up in some environments but was the best tool I've used thus far for answering the question of "what objects are eating my memory"

I'd also, with the _Massive_ disclaimer that I'm a MSFTie working for the Python group, mention that the visual studio IDE's Python support has a _mean_ profiler. hotpath/comparative reports/drill down/pretty pictures.

That all being said I'd be curious if anyone else would echo my sentiment that maybe 85% of the python perf issues I've seen in practice (in both my own code and others, and even in light of the more sophisticated "best practices" I often read) come down to one of:

- linear datastructures/algos instead of dicts/sets

- deeply nested loops

- excessive conversion between "stuff" (which basically falls back to #2) and/or lack of memoization.

Tooling aside, it gives me a nice dose of mental conflict re: utility of algo knowlege in interviews, as someone who typically rails against it...

The thing I have to do most often is find out where a function spends its time. It's a trivial problem. But there's no good out-of-the-box solution. I ended up creating one [1]. Example:

 with Timer('Task') as timer: with timer.child('First step'): sleep(1) for _ in range(5): with timer.child('Baby steps'): sleep(.5)

 Task: 3.520s Baby steps: 2.518s (71%) First step: 1.001s (28%)
This way, you know where most of the time is spent and what you need to optimise.

It's on PyPI as well:

 pip install timer_cm
The code is a grand 42 lines. But once you've had to do it a few times it becomes so tedious to code up from scratch that it's much nicer to have a ready-made solution.

Some guidelines I like for Python optimization (and on loops specifically):

- Rule 1: profile first! Only optimize when there is a proven speed bottleneck; I like using kernprof to profile. When you do go to optimize, test it in a tight loop with time.clock().

- Go for built-in functions; you can't beat a loop written in C.

- Use intrinsic operations. An implied loop is faster than an explicit for loop, and a while loop with an explicit loop counter is even slower.

- Avoid calling functions written in Python in your inner loop. This includes lambdas. In-lining the inner loop can save a lot of time.

- Local variables are faster than globals; if you use a global constant in a loop, copy it to a local variable before the loop. And in Python, function names (global or built-in) are also global constants!

- Try to use map(), filter() or reduce() to replace an explicit for loop, but only if you can use a built-in function: map with a built-in function beats for loop, but a for loop with in-line code beats map with a lambda function!

- Check your algorithms for quadratic behavior, but notice that a more complex algorithm only pays off for large N.

This may be a useful adjunct to insulin therapy, but there is no possibility whatsoever that it will be a replacement for it.

Insulin is the molecule that signals to cells that it is okay to take in and use sugar that's in the blood. This is a molecule that buffers sugar; if there's a high sugar concentration in the blood it binds it together and if there's a low sugar concentration it releases it. This would normally be one of the functions of the liver, but the latter part (absorbing excess sugar for storage) won't happen without insulin signaling. If you give this to a type 1 diabetic without also giving insulin, all that will happen is that it'll absorb sugar until it reaches capacity; the cells that should be using sugar for energy still won't be able to.

a suprisingly self-aware and perceptive piece from a member of the media "digestive tract" that produces this problem day in and day out.

I think this sheds too much blame on major news media outlets, whose whole job _should have_ been to fact check the stories they hear on the "ground" (twitter). But it assesses twitter's role correctly.

The piece I think people forget is that twitter has absolutely no financial interest in solving the "misinformation" problem. Fake news drives engagement. People like and retweet everything, regardless of if its true. Twitter is a key tool for the media (and I suspect that's where the vast majority of its value comes from). It's at the centerpiece of the news cycle now. Twitter is great for short, digestible snippets and one-liners that the media (and fake news) thrives on. At every level, they are incentivized to drive "engagement" and this can mean at the cost of truth.

Nothing will change (significantly) until twitters bottom line (user engagement as a proxy for ad money) changes.

I tagged along on one of my wife's business trips to Moscow about a decade ago. I spent a week mostly on my own exploring the city, and consequently much time on the metro (and more time lost). It certainly helped my ability to read Cyrillic but I would not call it a relaxing trip.

The metro stations really are breathtaking: emerging into a gilded, be-chandeliered hall after a near 5 minute escalator ride isn't something I'll forget.

Ride it everyday, and all the Soviet nostalgia aesthetic is making me sick. Here are some actually interesting stations:

- Vorobyovy Gory (the longest station, situated on a bridge over Moscow River)

- Dostoyevskaya (decorated with scenes from Dostoyevsky's novels which tend to be rather... dark)

- Timiryazevskaya (the only deep single-vault station in Moscow, looks cool)

- the entire monorail line (just weird)

- Vystavochnaya (the station under business district Moskva-City, it's just huge)

- Arbatskaya, light blue line (one of the smallest, and possibly the most useless station, very quirky)

Some of the recently built stations (yellow line Ramenki extension, light green line north of Maryina Roscha, dark blue line north of Strogino) have pretty interesting designs, if you don't mind travelling to the outskirts of Moscow.

Some interesting facts about the Moscow's M.

The Metro could have appeared as early as 1875 in Moscow, but the Russian Orthodox Church blocked it by claiming that "a man, created in the image of God, cannot humiliate himself by descending into the underworld."

In the October of 1941, during 2nd world war, the soviet government was preparing complete liquidation of the Metro. It was supposed to be flooded but the government order was soon abolished.

The total combined length of the M is 300km or 186 miles.

There was an article posted here a few months back lamenting how SF is gradually losing stoops and gaining garages, with driveways that cross the sidewalk.

People enter and exit their cars in the closed garage, never having the chance to greet their neighbors on the way, and also make what was traditionally a pedestrian-only zone more hazardous since now they drive across it (often with poor visibility).

As someone who has always lived in the Midwest or suburbs, when we bought our first house a couple years ago I was happy to have it be a rowhome in a small downtown, with an actual porch out front sticking into the sidewalk. I can sit out there on my bench swing thing and interact with my neighbors in a natural, informal way.

I've always been really fond of the front porch in Chicago for a similar reason. They are a bit more elaborate -- they are often covered, and are much larger as a whole, but they are pretty much the perfect place for 4 or 5 people to hang out.

I've met so many people because they are drinking on a porch or on a rear deck and I've started talking to them, and next thing you know I'm drinking a beer.

There's often a sunroom/living room/den connected to the front porch in Chicago. This room is known as the frunch room. I'm not entirely sure how to spell it, but it's a portmanteau of front and porch.

Chicago apartment buildings have a similar design either like this or near ground-level front porch, and when I was a kid near everyone was using them in the summer. You'd be hard pressed to walk down a block and not see near a third of the units with people hanging out in front. They became like backyards, BBQ's and all, but more much social because you could interact with your neighbors.

Today, condo development has destroyed some of these designs and the old apartment buildings don't ever seem to have anyone on the stoop or front porch. I guess people are more indoors orientated now or simply less social with their neighbors, at least in more gentrified neighborhoods. I barely know my neighbors to be honest. Sounds like the times haven't really changed much in Philly.

And anti-answer: consider learning JavaScript from something other than a book. The publication cycle for conventional box is relatively long, relative to the pace of technology evolution.

By the time the author writes it, it's published, and you read it, the information can be dated, sometimes extremely so.

There are gobs of online resources, and the best resource is rarely mentioned: reading other peoples code.

Once you get a basic understanding, you can start right clicking on webpages, "inspect source", opening the console window, and looking at how pages actually work. The debugger and single stepping chrome are quite good.

You don't know JS is a good book to start with and explains ES6 too.

Depends on what your level is going in.

For an absolute beginner, JavaScript and jQuery by Jon Duckett is extremely accessible. Sure, it covers jQuery but it's so well aimed at total beginners it's not a bad path.

At the lower intermediate level, Eloquent JavaScript (mentioned elsewhere) is fantastic.

At higher levels/if you know other languages and are comfortable learning new ones: Effective JavaScript, YDKJS, and Speaking JavaScript all fantastic and complement each other in various ways.

Is it strange that when I consider learning a new language, I don't turn to books? My instinct is that I can learn more quickly and interactively online. Particularly JavaScript, as the browser you are using to browse the websites teaching you JavaScript is already a full JavaScript interpreter and development suite.

No waiting for your code to be processed server side, or anything like that. I pick up a book later on, commonly, if I know the language and want to know more about techniques for building something specific with it.

This is a bit unorthodox, but I personally got a lot out of taking the LISP code in Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs, and mentally translating the examples and solving the exercises in Javascript. There's apparently versions of the text around with the exercises pre-translated, though translating it myself was valuable to me.

Obviously, this will more teach you how to write good code that happens to be in Javascript, rather than taking an already-solid programmer and showing them the nitpicky details, idiosyncrasies, and browser APIs of Javascript.

I think this question needs to be expanded upon before an adequate answer can really be given.

Are you looking to learn code via JS?

Are you proficient in another language that has similar constructs to JS and just need to understand the nuances?

Are you somebody who has understood JQuery on a low level but never understood what the code was actually doing?

I am sure there are a few more questions along similar veins and I think each one of these questions could be interpreted from the OP and I think all of these have potentially different answers.

I think it depends on your learning style & what you want to learn. http://jsbooks.revolunet.com/ is a great resource for free books.

If you want to learn concepts, You Don't Know JS by Kyle Simpson is great.

If you want to learn by doing, I would look away from books & more towards video based learning. It seems to have richer content in this style. Pluralsight, Frontend Masters, Egghead & Code School are all great. They also target different niches. If you're a complete beginner I suggest Code School. It does the best out of those at telling you where to start & what to learn next.

The Sororicide Antipattern twistedmatrix.com

This article seems to be criticizing _automatic delegation_, not _composition_. Delegation is not necessary for every (or even most) instance of composition. Beyond that, languages provide more narrowly-tailored forms of delegation than "forward every method that the underlying object supports".

Furthermore, the criticism of inheritance that the article sets up isn't the one that "composition over inheritance" is meant to address. Languages like Java with access modifiers (public/private/protected) don't have the accidental namespace collision issue the writer demonstrates, and yet "composition over inheritance" is a popular concept in those languages, too. The problem with inheritance is that the Liskov substitution principle is very easy to accidentally violate, and those violations can lead to a brittle and inflexible design over time. (See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circle-ellipse_problem)

Finally, I don't understand the relevance of the "sororicide" metaphor, nor does the article describe anything identifiable as an antipattern.

His argument against inheritance seems based largely on Python's weak implementation of private attributes. I mean, maybe he has an argument against inheritance in Python, or some versions of Python.

But if the only argument you have against inheritance is "private names may collide," well, like, computer science has you covered, dude.

Two nitpicky comments.

> Even if, right now, we were to change it to _note2, the maintainer of A could, in any future release of A, add a new _note2 variable which conflicts with something B is using.

This is why Python offers actual namespacing of properties and methods in the form of a double underscore (__). Double underscore prepends an underscore and the class name to the private property name which prevents these sorts of collisions.

 class Bprime(object): def __init__(self, a): for var in dir(a): setattr(self, var, getattr(a, var))
> Uh oh. Looks like composition is worse than inheritance.

This is not composition.

"Six months after Funk and Taylor completed their report, AAP bore the brunt of more than $500 million in Congressional cuts to NASA's Fiscal Year 1968 budget. The program, which for a time in 1966 had been planned to include some 40 Earth-orbital and lunar missions, shrank rapidly during 1968-1969. It was officially renamed the Skylab Program in February 1970. Between May 1973 and February 1974, three three-man crews occupied the Skylab Orbital Workshop in Earth orbit for a total of 173 days."

For context, the US spent ~$110B (non-inflation adjusted) on military actions in Vietnam, 1965-72.

To think we could have ceded Vietnam a few years earlier and visited Venus for pocket change (and potentially not had Nixon as a president)... the mind boggles.

How does one judge the "performance" of a cryptocurrency? In the abstract, I'd say what marks a currency's "performance" is its ability to be exchanged for goods and services; in that sense there really aren't any performing cryptocurrencies.

They seem to mean "which has the biggest increase in spot price this year?", which is a kind of weird thing to judge a currency on.

While many of these cryptocurrencies have some underlying function besides speculation, seems to me they are mostly a way around pyramid scheme laws at the moment. Such a huge number of competing pyramid schemes going all at once should produce some good data for a few economics PhD's.

I made this comment elsewhere[0], but I'll repeat it here:

I recently took a flight from Belgrade via Istanbul to Birmingham (UK). Hand luggage only, no checked luggage.

At Istanbul they took my laptop from me, gave me a receipt, packed it in bubble-wrap, put that in a suitcase with lots of other bubble-wrapped laptops, and put it in the hold.

Yes, I got it back in the baggage reclaim area, but it was cold - seriously cold - I didn't dare turn it on for several hours to let the disk warm up slowly.

This is making international travel a complete crap-shoot.

Take precautions people. Backup your data, don't travel with your valuable laptop.

Another security risk that the article doesn't really get explicit about is tampering of your laptop to install [hardware] keyloggers and such. Just because it's in bubble wrap or whatever doesn't mean the authorities can't pick it out and do what they want with it.

As far as mitigation of all this paranoia and destruction of reasonable social & business order, I hope group charter flights become more widespread & affordable, avoiding all the bulk passenger plane nonsense.

It's not only a privacy risk, it's a fire risk, if li-ion batteries are put in the hold.

Sadly, if they do roll out a hand-luggage ban on electronics, I can see it becoming a complete ban due to existing regulations (e.g. EU) that prohibit the checking of li-ion batteries due to the fire risk.

I now feel like something of a tit for pointing out that security theatre is ridiculous while one is allowed to carry li-ion/lipo batteries on one's person, as you could just fold your iPhone in half using a tray table as a lever, and then use the ensuing white hot long lasting flame for whatever nefarious purpose, as they now appear to be closing this window.

If one is outright banned from transporting electronics it will be chaos - will I need to buy a new phone in every location I fly to? What about business travellers - are we going to see a resurgence in portable manual typewriters, and flights sounding like a hailstorm?

I am so sick of this idiocy.
