Here are some of the interesting things I’ve read recently on the Web.
Interesting article from Christopher Meiklejohn arguing for eventually-consistent datastores as a better representation of how data exists in the real world than datastores that enforce global consistency. Worth the read.
A filtered list of Github issues marked as “up for grabs” for beginners or people not familiar with the project in question. Good starting point for those interested in contributing to open source; at some point when I’m not so oversaturated I will probably try to knock a few of these out.
Excellent interactive site describing some of the challenges in climate change, and ways that people in the so-called “tech industry” (i.e. computing) can contribute to solutions.
Very pretty short documentary on the Long Now’s 10,000 year clock project.
Interesting short article and infographic about the key dynamics for good teams at Google. Interested that the first one is “Psychological safety: Can we take risks on this team without feeling insecure or embarrassed?”
A conversation between an astronaut and a cartoonist.
