progrium / gitreceive
Creates an ssh+git user that creates repositories on the fly and lets you run scripts or hit HTTP endpoints when you push code.

Build your own Heroku. Push code anywhere.

It's just not a post-receive hook. It's a powerful wrapper around pre-receive giving you easy access to the code that was pushed while still being able to send output back to the git user.

M/M/c queue - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In queueing theory, the M/M/c queue is a multi-server queueing model.[1] In Kendall's notation it describes a system where arrivals form a single queue and are governed by a Poisson process, there are c servers and job service times are exponentially distributed.[2] It is a generalisation of the M/M/1 queue which considers only a single server. The model with infinitely many servers is the M/M/∞ queue.

IMAP as the Proto Personal Cloud
If you have used IMAP to connect an email client to an email server, then you already know the benefits that a personal cloud will provide to you. IMAP and SMTP create an email ecosystem where the user is in control. That's what personal clouds do for other applications.

Proposed standards for the care and feeding of user generated content – Jeffrey Zeldman Presents The Daily Report
Treat our data like it matters. Keep it secure and protect our privacy, of course—but also maintain serious backups and respect our choice to delete any information we’ve contributed.
No upload without download. Build in export capabilities from day one.
If you close a system, support data rescue. Provide one financial quarter’s notice between announcing the shutdown and destroying any user-contributed content, public or private, and offer data export during this period. And beyond that three months? Make user-contributed content available for media-cost purchase for one year after shutdown.

Zittrain in Technology Review: The personal computer is dead
Both software developers and users should demand more. Developers should look for ways to reach their users unimpeded, through still-open platforms, or through pressure on the terms imposed by the closed ones. And users should be ready to try "off-roading" with the platforms that still allow it—hewing to the original spirit of the PC, perhaps amplified by systems that let apps have a trial run on a device without being given the keys to the kingdom. If we allow ourselves to be lulled into satisfaction with walled gardens, we'll miss out on innovations to which the gardeners object, and we'll set ourselves up for censorship of code and content that was previously impossible. We need some angry nerds.

Steven Poole: Whatever made you think it was your data anyway?
In case it helps, I hereby declare the following iron law of “free” internet services:

If you’re not paying for something, you have no reason to expect it to be there tomorrow.

This is an important corollary to the law “If you’re not paying for something, you’re not a customer; you’re the product being sold”.

"This week­end, I did some­thing really cool (for me). I got to watch a March Mad­ness game on my TV that CBS wasn’t show­ing in my local mar­ket on my TV, with­out pay­ing the cable com­pany. Life is full of short vic­to­ries, and this is one of mine. More impor­tantly, I real­ized I’m liv­ing in the heav­enly juke­box I used to talk about in my pre­sen­ta­tions years ago."

My Head is in the Cloud
Been there for years myself, welcome to the cloud. This is part of why I'm so awkward away from an internet connection. "Now, after a few years of this, I realize that when I look up from the screen I know almost nothing. And maybe that would be fine if the absent phone numbers and upcoming dates were freeing space for deeper and more introspective thought. But I sense that my addiction to the realtime stream is only making room for the consumption of a faster stream."

Public Open Source Services / FrontPage
"You use the same Google Merchant account that App Engine debits as the one that accepts donations. This way no bank account is involved. Then you track the money that goes into the account (using the Google Merchant IPN equivalent). Then you look at your usage stats from the App Engine panel and predicate future usage trends. Then calculate the cost per month. Then divide the cash in the account by that and you have how long the service will run. You make this visible on all pages (at the bottom, say) that this service will run for X months, "Pay now to keep it running." You accept any amount, but you are completely clear about what the costs are. And this is all automated."

Shell script for automated Amazon EC2 personal proxy server « Sprayfly
"Amazon EC2 Instances currently cost $0.10 USD per hour to run plus bandwidth charges (which for standard web browsing will be negligent). This gives Amazon EC2 the potential to be an incredibly cheap on-demand proxy server. Finally you only pay for what you use rather than paying an extortionate monthly rate."

EUCALYPTUS is implemented using commonly available Linux tools and basic Web-service technologies making it easy to install and maintain"

"Don’t blow anything into the Cloud that you don’t have a personal copy of. ... Insult, berate and make fun of any company that offers you something like a “sharing” site that makes you push stuff in that you can’t make copies out of or which you can’t export stuff out of. Make fun of these people, and their shitty little Cloud Cities running on low-grade cooking fat and dreams. They will die and they will take your stuff into the hole. Don’t let them. ... Are you paying for these services? No? You are a sucker. You are giving people stuff for free. ... These are parties. And parties are fun and parties and cool and you meet neat people at parties but parties are not a home."

"It's just as bad as using a proprietary program. Do your own computing on your own computer with your copy of a freedom-respecting program. If you use a proprietary program or somebody else's web server, you're defenceless. You're putty in the hands of whoever developed that software."

"Chrome is the end of the browser and the beginning of the Cloud Client. These are quite different things. A Cloud Client is a flexible and configurable Interface in which an application can run. Whether the rest of the application is local or lives in the cloud is an option - and switchable. The user may not even know nor care. It doesn’t sound much like a browser does it?"

Joe Gregorio | BitWorking | The role of REST in Cloud Computing
"I am in no way saying that AtomPub is the solution. What I am pointing out is that if you want federation then you need to design your protocols and APIs RESTfully. In this example it is hypertext, link following, in the AtomPub spec that allows these two separate services to be linked together."

"The whole point about cloud computing is that it has to be effectively infinite - the more people want, the more they get. You can't do that with software that requires some kind of licensing payment, unless it's flat-fee."
