RIC Journal
RIC : a declaration, a dogma, a necessity. In another time, it could even have been a religion. An aesthetic observation, all equilibrated pictures obey to this golden rule: presence of a red spot somewhere in the corner. It’s the golden number, a harmonic line, it’s the music of the gods. But it extends beyond images, beyond surfaces, beyond the visible.

No sublime human creation is perfect; it’s the little failed detail, the RIC, that turns it into a masterpiece.

This Is the Vintage Alfa Romeo That Inspired the New 8C
Alfa's upcoming mid-engine sports car might share its name with a race car from the 1930s, but it'll look a lot like something from 1967.
Alfa Romeo announced a new mid-engine sports car today, the 8C, named after the 8C Competizione of 2007 and many of its amazing eight-cylinder road and race cars of the 1920s and 1930s. But based on a sketch released by Alfa, it looks like the new 8C draws inspiration from a different model from the company—the 1967 Tipo 33 Stradale.
Viewed in profile the similarities are quite apparent. Just look at the swept up window line and muscular rear fender on the 8C sketch. It's clear the designers at Alfa Romeo have been hanging out in the company's museum where the Tipo 33 Stradale prototype lives.
The Tipo 33 was originally designed as a tube-framed prototype for the 1967 World Sportscar Championship, but Alfa Romeo decided its chassis would lend itself well to a road car. So, Franco Scaglione—who designed the original Giulietta Sprint while at Bertone—was tapped by Alfa to provide bodywork for the 33. The results were astonishing.

Peeking Behind the Curtains of Serverless Platforms (PDF)
Abstract
Serverless computing is an emerging paradigm in which an application’s resource provisioning and scaling are managed by third-party services. Examples include AWS Lambda, Azure Functions, and Google Cloud Functions. Behind these services’ easy-to-use APIs are opaque, complex infrastructure and management ecosystems. Taking on the viewpoint of a serverless customer, we conduct the largest measurement study to date, launching more than 50,000 function instances across these three services, in order to characterize their architectures, performance, and resource management efficiency. We explain how the platforms isolate the functions of different accounts, using either virtual machines or containers, which has important security implications. We characterize performance in terms of scalability, coldstart latency, and resource efficiency, with highlights including that AWS Lambda adopts a bin-packing-like strategy to maximize VM memory utilization, that severe contention between functions can arise in AWS and Azure, and that Google had bugs that allow customers to use resources for free.
