Why I got a Kindle and set a goal to read 24 books in 2017

I'm not much of a reader. Never have been. I never saw the value. The thought of sitting down and reading a book felt as much of a chore as doing laundry or cleaning my stovetop.

いますぐ使える単語埋め込みベクトルのリスト - Qiita
単語埋め込みとは、単語を低次元(と言っても200次元程度はある)の実数ベクトルで表現する技術のことです。近い意味の単語を近いベクトルに対応させることができるとともに、ベクトルの足し引きで意味のある結果(例えば king - man + women = queen)が得られるのが特徴です。

単語埋め込みベクトルは品詞タグ付け、情報検索、質問応答などの様々な自然言語処理アプリケーションに使われる重要な技術です。とはいえ、実際に用意するのはなかなか骨の折れる作業です。大規模なデータをダウンロードし、前処理をかけ、長い時間をかけて学習させ、結果を見てパラメータチューニングを行う・・・。

そのため、単に使いたいだけなら学習済みのベクトルを使うのが楽です。というわけで、そんな単語埋め込みベクトルの中から今すぐ使えるものをピックアップしてみました。

How do you say no to customers? - Inside Intercom
Remain friendly and personal when saying no. Resist the urge to hide behind formal language and try to continue to be yourself as much as possible. If in doubt, ask yourself if you’d use the same language to explain the situation to a friend or colleague. If it would feel weird speaking to them that way, then don’t speak that way to your customer.

TIL: Redis Keyspace Notifications | KatPadi's Point
Browsing online, I came across the so-called Redis Keyspace Notifications. It basically acts as a Pub/Sub mechanism that enables clients to subscribe to a Redis channel and receive “published” events whenever a Redis command or data alteration is encountered. The feature is available since version 2.8, apparently.

Run your tests on production!
In a project comprised of microservices, there are many integration surfaces, so many things can go wrong and setting up the test environment is not trivial. To start the whole app locally we need to spin up 8 ruby processes, not counting databases, message queues, and assets compilation.

GitHub’s post-CSP journey - GitHub Engineering
Last year we shared some details on GitHub’s CSP journey. A journey was a good way to describe it, as our usage of Content Security Policy (CSP) significantly changed from our initial release nearly four years ago to where we ended up last year. It wasn’t until then that we felt our policy was relatively stable and, while we were not foolish enough to call it “done,” we found the policy was refined enough to focus on protections beyond what CSP offered.

What I Learned Crafting API Definitions For 66 Of The Amazon Web Services
I just finished crafting API definitions for 66 of the Amazon Web Services. You can find it all on Github, indexed with an APIs.json. While I wish all API providers would do this hard work on their, I do enjoy the process because it forces me to learn a lot of each API, and the details of what providers are up to. I learned quite a bit about Amazon Web Services going through the over 2000 paths that are available across the 66 services.

This is, without a doubt, the coolest Sketch technique you’ll see all day. – UX Power Tools – Medium
So it goes without saying that when symbol overrides came around in Sketch 41, they had me yodeling out of pure jubilation and ecstasy. It was a pretty big deal.
After much trial-and-error, I’ve created some of the most flexible, customizable, and maintainable components ever using nested symbols, overrides, and what I’m dubbing Cascading Symbol Styles…aka CSS.

"Happiness Revolution" Leads to Team Restructure
As we work on tone and support quality, we’ve realized one of the best ways for a support professional to truly learn from past conversations and progress is to audit one’s own tickets. We believe that by grading your own work, you are much more likely to internalize the lessons.
So we are encouraging everyone to take time to reflect on past tickets in our new quality self-reviews.

FoursquareがGoogleに対抗してリストの検索機能を新たに導入、もっと早くからあるべきでは? | TechCrunch Japan
Google Mapsが、場所にスターをつけたりするための、複数種類のリスト作成機能を準備している。対抗してFoursquareは、そのリスト機能をもっと便利にしようとしている。同社の今朝(米国時間1/13)の発表によると、リストを検索する機能が新たに加わるらしい。

考えてみれば、この便利な場所発見アプリに、ユーザーが集めた情報に対する検索機能が今までなかったこと自体が驚きだ。でも昔から、Foursquareの考えることはいつも謎めいている。アプリを分割してシティガイドとソーシャルネットワークに分けるなんて、謎の最たるものだ。

Moving persistent data out of Redis - GitHub Engineering
Recently we made the decision to disable persistence in Redis and stop using it as a source of truth for our data.

For the majority of callsites, we replaced persistent Redis with GitHub::KV, a MySQL key/value store of our own built atop InnoDB, with features like key expiration. We were able to use GitHub::KV almost identically as we used Redis: from trending repositories and users for the explore page, to rate limiting to spammy user detection.
