Citation Matters: An Updated Reading List for a Progressive Environmental Anthropology — Cultural Anthropology
A progressive environmental anthropology will take the field in a new direction. This reading list builds on scholarship that expands debates about the value of anthropology to the humanistic study of the environment. We have organized it according to themes as a way to put ethnographically oriented work in dialogue with other humanities and social sciences, as well as with engineering and the natural/physical sciences. These themes are guideposts for thinking about the environment in its many dimensions. To this end, each week of our imagined syllabus attempts to offer theoretical and regional breadth that pushes at the intellectual and practical boundaries of environmental anthropology.

Microservices techniques: Taking data out of the monolith · David blog
Going from a monolith to a full microservices architecture is not an easy task, and one of the hardest part is breaking the database, choosing which data should be moved out of the monolith, and what should stay in it. The new service will own data that previously belong to the original DB, but it will need to share some of it back to the monolith. Likewise the new service will also have dependencies on data still belonging to the monolith. In this post I will focus on the later problem, accessing monolith data required by the new service, but not owned by it. For example, in my current project we are creating a new Notifications service. We are moving all related tables to the new notifications database. But the new domain still have dependencies on data not owned by it. For example, we have the concept of favorite in our website and applications, which help us decide who to send some of our notifications, but favorites data is not owned by the notifications domain. There are different ways to extract this type of data, they all have some pros and cons, some of them are generally better, but in the end it depends on your use case. There are two main ways to access the data needed from the monolith, you can synchronously request the data when you need it, or you can store a copy of the data (a cache) in your local database, in this case you will have to apply a strategy to synchronize your local DB with the monolith DB.

The Making of a Democratic Economy | Ted Howard | RSA Replay - YouTube
"While not often reported on in the press, there is a growing movement – a Community Wealth Building movement – that is taking hold, from the ground up, in towns and cities in the United States and in the United Kingdom, in particular.

Ted Howard, co-founder and president of the Democracy Collaborative, voted one of ‘25 visionaries who are changing your world’, visits the RSA to share the story of the growth of this movement, and the principles underlying it. Join us to explore innovative models of a new economy being built in cities from Cleveland, Ohio to Preston, Lancashire, and to discuss how we might dramatically expand the vision and reality of a democratic economy."

An Alternative History of Silicon Valley Disruption | WIRED
"But did the digital revolution have to end in an oligopoly? In our fog of resentment, three recent books argue that the current state of rising inequality was not a technological inevitability. Rather the narrative of disruption duped us into thinking this was a new kind of capitalism. The authors argue that tech companies conquered the world not with software, but via the usual route to power: ducking regulation, squeezing workers, strangling competitors, consolidating power, raising rents, and riding the wave of an economic shift already well underway."
