Don Norman's jnd.org / The Psychology of Waiting Lines
"Waiting is an inescapable part of life, but that doesn’t mean we enjoy it. But if the lines are truly inescapable, what can be done to make them less painful? Although there is a good deal of practical knowledge, usually known within the heads of corporate managers, very little has been published about the topic. [...] In the PDF file, The Psychology of Waiting Lines, I bring the study of waiting lines up to date, following the spirit of Maister’s original publication, but with considerable revision in light of modern findings. I suggest eight design principles, starting with the “emotions dominate” and ending with the principle that “memory of an event is more important than the experience.”"

Interview with Michael Stonebraker
Michael Stonebraker: "What I see happening is that the large database vendors, whom I’ll call the elephants, are selling a one-size-fits-all, 30-year-old architecture that dates from somewhere in the late 1970s." (many more excellent tidbits in there)

ACM Queue - Like a Podcast in the Sea - Mean Ol' LoTech Blues - Is it just a matter of semantics?
