Doing the SDE Conversions - Fuzzwork Enterprises
I’m not planning on stopping doing these any time soon, as I need them for my own porpoises, but I thought it might be worth having a few instructions out there, so people can run their own conversions of the EVE SDE. Just in case I get hit by a bus, or mauled by crazed Cetaceans.

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.

SUMO and migrating large amounts of data
Data migration is a complicated problem. It’s one of those things nobody wants to do, because it’s mostly tedious, not engaging, and also important to get right. Often times you have to compromise. I’ll talk a bit about the history of SUMO’s data, decisions the product and development team have made regarding its migration, and things I’ve learned from the experience.

CouchDB "Joins" - Christopher Lenz
Obvious to Damien, but not at all obvious to the rest of us: it's fairly simple to make a view that includes both the content of the blog post document, and the content of all the comments associated with that post. The way you do that is by using complex keys. Until now we've been using simple string values for the view keys, but in fact they can be arbitrary JSON values, so let's make some use of that:

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”.

Don't use MongoDB | Hacker News

First, I tried to find any client of ours with a track record like this and have been unsuccessful. I personally have looked at every single customer case that’s every come in (there are about 1600 of them) and cannot match this story to any of them. I am confused as to the origin here, so answers cannot be complete in some cases.

Detecting Support for data: URIs | Weston Ruter
The data: URI scheme is now supported by the most current version of every major browser, including Internet Explorer. Because of this I wanted to use CSS background images encoded with data: URIs in a current project at Shepherd Interactive. Why? The first rule of High Performance Websites is to Minimize HTTP Requests. By storing background images directly in the stylesheet only one HTTP request is then necessary to fetch the stylesheet and the images all at once. Furthermore, by giving that stylesheet a far-future cache expiration date the browser will never need to request it again.

Persistent Trees in git, Clojure and CouchDB « EclipseSource Blog
"This is a tale of three images. I found these images while investigating the internals of several different applications. There are some really neat software projects emerging at the moment, and as a developer I always find it interesting to take a look at the implementation details, because there is often a lot to be learned. It’s not always something you might need right now, but maybe a few years down the line you may be confronted with a similar problem. Plus – in my opinion – knowing a bit about the internals of a program helps reasoning about its behaviour."

NoSQL vs. RDBMS: Let the flames begin! –
"I guess what I’m saying is that my decision to use NoSQL, and I’m guessing others’ decisions to do so, has less to do with the fact that we can’t squeeze a few thousand writes a second out of MySQL and more to do with management and cost overhead. NoSQL solutions allow us to serve absurd amounts of data for a really, really low price. I’m happy to put my $/write, $/read, and $/GB numbers for my NoSQL setup against anyone’s RDBMS numbers.<br />
<br />
We’re not nearly as dumb as everyone thinks we are; I promise."

Edward Vielmetti - Downtown parking information by telephone project: my part is over
"Sorry I ever brought it up, sorry for any hurt feelings. It was wrong of me to think that I could make any progress without the support of the organization providing the data, and wrong of me to press on regardless of the cost. Someone else will have to care - I give up. It's just not worth it and it's bad for my health to care and to spend too much time around parking structure fumes."

Edward Vielmetti - I am not an "information activist" or a "civic minded data freak", thank you very much
"So if I ask for that page of numbers as the spreadsheet it was originally, and a public records officer for a public body gives it to me as a bitmap, I'm going to ask again and keep asking publicly and perhaps uncomfortably until we both understand that this is a routine request and that compliance with routine requests is much easier than making everything an exception - because maybe, just maybe, I can replace that FOIA letter with a tiny shell script and we can just go about our business."

Monkeying with the Lizard Feeder
"The call to action is to build on the Lizard Feeder concept with anything from ideas to pixels to code. I hacked up a grease monkey script that weights the data-source checkbox & label on the left according to the volume of flow. This provides a bit of focus + context for the recent stream. The implementation is a minimal, bit-of-an-evening starter kit (MPL) for more interesting creations."

january 2009 by deusx » A Warning About the Real Cost of Microformats
"Anyway, here’s the question I want to put into the reader’s mind: should one spend time and effort making a frontend into an informal API through microformats, or to instead spend it on building a fully supported API or data publishing system that exists and operates separately? I think my stance is clear - i’m not against the theory of microformats, but i’m certainly going to differ with anyone who thinks it’s practical."
