Let’s go for my web review for the week 2023-15.
Tags: tech, foss, criticism
I don’t necessarily agree with the fine points in the proposed actions. That said the diagnosis is unfortunately very true I think.

I’m still doubtful about it but maybe I’m wrong so a counterpoint to my own opinions. Of course this is a purely productivity standpoint in here which overlooks my main concerns with how this is currently deployed and used.
Tags: tech, ai, machine-learning, gpt
This is important. We need truly open generator models. This can’t be left in the hands of a few with only API access, especially since they lack basic transparency.
Tags: tech, drawing, animation, tools
Neat tool for animating your own drawings. Impressive results for sure.
Tags: tech, foss, conference, video, messaging
Nice recipe on what can be used to run a virtual conference using only Free Software.
Tags: tech, networking, internet, history
Excellent piece which summarises the big design decisions behind the Internet. It’s very didactic, also highlights the flaw toward the end. This is reference material.
Tags: tech, embedded, can, security, automotive
This is an incredibly informative deep dive regarding a new attack on CAN buses. Also proposes potential fixes. Let’s see how car makers deal with it.
Tags: tech, databases, sharding
Good overview on database sharding. Points to a couple of tools which can help in some situations.
Tags: tech, messaging, databases, rabbitmq, postgresql, architecture, complexity
They were probably using RabbitMQ for the wrong scenario in the first place. That said it’s a good reminder that sometimes a simpler architecture is what you want and it can bring benefits.
Tags: tech, programming, java
Need to update your Java knowledge because it evolved quite a bit? Here is a little list of the features to focus on.
Tags: tech, memory, tests, c++
Often overlooked in test cases. Still it’s not that complicated to setup.
Tags: tech, git, tools
Neat git trick, could be useful from time to time.
Tags: tech, management
I’m not necessarily convinced by all of those. Still there are interesting ballpark numbers I didn’t have on my radar as far as management goes.
Tags: tech, team, engineering
Another way to look at the fact that software engineering is a team sport. Missing this fact can lead to problems.
Tags: presentation, business, meetings
Hm… interesting framework. Especially for me, I know I tend to be too verbose. Definitely something I’m willing to try.
Tags: science, physics, astronomy
This is a surprising and fascinating discovery. The scale of such events is mind bending.
Bye for now!
