Reply to selected text not appearing when last para is selected - ux - Discourse Meta
there is a group of ppl, 10-20%? that highlight text while reading.
"OK so this is a particular thing that I tend to do over and over, I double click paragraphs while I’m reading and the reply button doesn’t actually show up if I select the last paragraph. Presumably because chrome’s selection thing randomly includes bits of the chrome too (it seems to select a little bit after the newline, highlighting at the start of the ‘like’ heart). I don’t know if this is fixable or worth fixing but I thought it should be reported."

An Insider’s Take on API Strategy | Okta
"First, the good news:

98% of respondents said they had an API strategy in place
95% are planning to invest in APIs in the near future
28% said their strategies were already “successfully planned and implemented”
An additional 44% said their strategies were “likely to succeed”
But there’s some bad news too:

Only 36% said Security teams perform audits of their APIs
Only 4% said Product Managers approve the launching of their APIs
Only 8% of respondents said Engineering, IT, Security, and Product Management were all involved in API security

Warren Buffett's "2 List" Strategy: How to Maximize Your Focus and Master Your Priorities
"At this point, Flint had two lists. The 5 items he had circled were List A and the 20 items he had not circled were List B.

Flint confirmed that he would start working on his top 5 goals right away. And that's when Buffett asked him about the second list, “And what about the ones you didn't circle?”

Flint replied, “Well, the top 5 are my primary focus, but the other 20 come in a close second. They are still important so I’ll work on those intermittently as I see fit. They are not as urgent, but I still plan to give them a dedicated effort.”

To which Buffett replied, “No. You’ve got it wrong, Mike. Everything you didn’t circle just became your Avoid-At-All-Cost list. No matter what, these things get no attention from you until you’ve succeeded with your top 5.”"

twitter/diffy: Find potential bugs in your services with Diffy
"Diffy finds potential bugs in your service using running instances of your new code and your old code side by side. Diffy behaves as a proxy and multicasts whatever requests it receives to each of the running instances. It then compares the responses, and reports any regressions that may surface from those comparisons. The premise for Diffy is that if two implementations of the service return “similar” responses for a sufficiently large and diverse set of requests, then the two implementations can be treated as equivalent and the newer implementation is regression-free."

Service-oriented architecture - Wikipedia
These services and their corresponding consumers communicate with each other by passing data in a well-defined, shared format, or by coordinating an activity between two or more services.[8]

A manifesto was published for service-oriented architecture in October, 2009. This came up with six core values which are listed as follows:[9]

Business value is given more importance than technical strategy.
Strategic goals are given more importance than project-specific benefits.
Intrinsic inter-operability is given more importance than custom integration.
Shared services are given more importance than specific-purpose implementations.
Flexibility is given more importance than optimization.
Evolutionary refinement is given more importance than pursuit of initial perfection.
SOA can be seen as part of the continuum which ranges from the older concept of distributed computing[7][10] and modular programming, through SOA, and on to current practices of mashups, SaaS, and cloud computing (which some see as the offspring of SOA).[11]

There are no industry standards relating to the exact composition of a service-oriented architecture, although many industry sources have published their own principles. Some of these[12][13][14][15] include the following:

Standardized service contract
Services adhere to a standard communications agreements, as defined collectively by one or more service-description documents within a given set of services.
Service reference autonomy (an aspect of loose coupling)
The relationship between services is minimized to the level that they are only aware of their existence.
Service location transparency (an aspect of loose coupling)
Services can be called from anywhere within the network that it is located no matter where it is present.
Service longevity
Services should be designed to be long lived. Where possible services should avoid forcing consumers to change if they do not require new features, if you call a service today you should be able to call the same service tomorrow.
Service abstraction
The services act as black boxes, that is their inner logic is hidden from the consumers.
Service autonomy
Services are independent and control the functionality they encapsulate, from a Design-time and a run-time perspective.
Service statelessness
Services are stateless, that is either return the requested value or give an exception hence minimizing resource use.
Service granularity
A principle to ensure services have an adequate size and scope. The functionality provided by the service to the user must be relevant.
Service normalization
Services are decomposed or consolidated (normalized) to minimize redundancy. In some, this may not be done, These are the cases where performance optimization, access, and aggregation are required.[16]
Service composability
Services can be used to compose other services.
Service discovery
Services are supplemented with communicative meta data by which they can be effectively discovered and interpreted.
Service reusability
Logic is divided into various services, to promote reuse of code.
Service encapsulation
Many services which were not initially planned under SOA, may get encapsulated or become a part of SOA.

The Zoom/Embed Pattern - The RESTed NARWHL
"The Zoom/Embed pattern provides for finer grained control over the data returned by allowing the developer to specify that one or more resources related to the requested resource be returned embedded within the response. While this can add significantly to the response payload a client receives, it gives the client developer an opportunity to decide whether that additional payload provides better performance over making additional calls."

Pareidolia - Wikipedia
Pareidolia (/pærɪˈdoʊliə/ parr-i-DOH-lee-ə) is a psychological phenomenon in which the mind responds to a stimulus, usually an image or a sound, by perceiving a familiar pattern where none exists.

Common examples are perceived images of animals, faces, or objects in cloud formations, the Man in the Moon, the Moon rabbit, hidden messages in recorded music played in reverse or at higher- or lower-than-normal speeds, and hearing indistinct voices in random noise such as that produced by air conditioners or fans.[
