Let’s go for my web review for the week 2023-19.
Tags: copyright, law, music
The copyright system is utterly broken at that point. This kind of lawsuits don’t make any sense.

Clearly inspiring… this project really went from dying to skyrocketing. I’d like to see more of those.
Tags: tech, social-media, protocols, vendor-lockin
This clearly doesn’t look as interesting as ActivityPub…

Clearly Zulip uses the opportunity for a bit of self-promotion. Can’t blame them, at least they’re the rare ones not going for open core. Also this is a good explanation on why one shouldn’t trust the “free forever” claims for cloud hosting.
Tags: tech, ai, gpt, capitalism, ethics, criticism
Excellent opinion piece. Sure, “A.I.” is a tool, but who is wielding that tool currently? Whom needs is it designed to fulfill? This is currently very much of a problem. The comparison with McKinsey although surprising is an interesting thought.
Also I appreciate the clarification on the Luddites movement… they were not anti-technology.

Looks like a promising way to reduce the training cost of large language models.

Truly open source models are pouring in. This is showing more transparency and I hope it will lead to better uses even though some of the concerns will stay true.
Tags: tech, ai, neural-networks, gpt, foss
And yet another set of open source models. This is really democratizing quickly.
Tags: tech, infrastructure, microservices, architecture, complexity
Even the giants are slowly moving back from microservices in some places. DHH has a very cruel way to point it out, still that’s true. Let’s hope people realize the mistake it was in term of complexity.
Tags: tech, programming, language
Nice poster. It’s harder to classify programming languages than it sounds. This one is interesting.
Tags: tech, web, htmx, frontend, backend
This is indeed looking more and more like a viable and worthwhile option for web applications.
Tags: tech, python, security
It points out the security risk but it’s mainly a good explanation on how Python loads modules.
Tags: tech, fediverse, protocols, http
Interesting article. This is a good introduction to the ActivityPub protocol. It also gives nice flies and pointers on how to dive deeper.
Tags: tech, storage, performance
Interesting exploration on the performance of SSDs regarding write patterns. Turns out sequential IO is still a thing, just for a different reason than with good old HDDs.
Tags: tech, shell, command-line, tools
Looks like an interesting tool to try. History is an important part of the shell experience.
Tags: tech, tests, virtualization, linux
Looks like a really neat tool for testing low level and kernel dependent details in a reproducible way.
Tags: tech, tdd, tests
Neat, short and simple post highlighting the important traits of TDD.
Tags: tech, management, productivity, innovation
This is another way to approach the question of having slack in your schedule. This is necessary, and probably at scale in the organization (as implied by this article).
Tags: tech, project-management, agile, scrum, kanban
A good reminder that there is life outside of Scrum… I especially like the framing of Scrum as training wheels. When you learned biking you outgrew the training wheels, didn’t you?
Tags: tech, improving, management, xp
Old article, still an interesting approach to making changes and looking for growth opportunities. There is value in trying not to frame everything as problems to solve.
Tags: management, team, communication
Interesting ideas in there. It’s not enough to pick up that something is off in a conversation. It’s better to influence things to defuse the tension. Clearly not that easy to do, will require quite some practice.
Bye for now!
