Hey Reddit, I just broke the overall piston-driven land speed record! 448.757MPH : pics
I use 1.5 feet per second is roughly equal to 1 mile an hour. It’s actually 1.46666666666666666 feet per second is equal to one mile an hour.

So, from the time their front bumper is equal with yours to the time their rear bumper is passing your front is the length of their car divided by 1.5’ per second, gives you how much faster they were moving.

A Honda Accord is about 15’ in length for reference. If they pass you in less than a second, it’s at least 10 mph faster than you.

The Tyranny of Stuctureless
there is no such thing as structureless--human nature is such that there is always a hierarchy. thinking you're "structureless" just makes it a hidden and unfair game.

democracy makes it a visible and "fair" game:
- delegation of authority for specific tasks
- executors are still responsible/accountable to the wider group
- distribution of power across many people
- rotation of tasks among individuals
- allocation of tasks along rational criteria
- diffusion of information to everyone, and
- equal access to resources

Do calories matter? - Peter Attia
Obesity is a growth disorder just like any other growth disorder.  Specifically, obesity is a disorder of excess fat accumulation.  Fat accumulation is determined not by the balance of calories consumed and expended but by the effect of specific nutrients on the hormonal regulation of fat metabolism.  Obesity is a condition where the body prioritizes the storage of fat rather than the utilization of fat.

thermodynamics viewpoint is correct, but assumes calories consumed and calories stored are independent variables. they are not.

Good Sugar vs. Bad Sugar, Know the Differences | Factor75
HFCS = 50% fructose, "free and unbound", immediately available for fat storage
agave nector = 90% fructose, "low GI", but due to fructose being metabolized in liver instead of blood stream
raw honey = GI of 30, ~good; processed honey has GI of 75
maple syrup = low in free fructose, but 66% sucrose, so 33% fructose, choose darker grades, GL 8.
molasses = 50% free fructose, another 25% via sucrose
coconut palm sugar = ~40% fructose

RFC 7636 - Proof Key for Code Exchange by OAuth Public Clients
to mitigate mobile side-attack of watching auth-code come back:
1) 1st request to auth server has hash(secret)
2) 2nd request to auth server has secret, to prove, yes, i'm the process that made the 1st request.

e.g.:

* only give auth code to the pre-registered/trusted client uri (via URLs/app links)
* only give auth token to the process who provably made the 1st request (s2s uses pre-shared client secret, mobile uses one-time secret)

Meet Bandaid, the Dropbox service proxy | Dropbox Tech Blog
Request queueing implemented inside the proxy allows for better management of overloaded backends. Bandaid always processes requests in Last In, First Out (LIFO) order. When the system is not overloaded, the queue will be empty (or almost empty). Thus there’s no real difference between popping requests from the front of the queue or the back of the queue. Where LIFO processing reduces overhead is when the system is overloaded. By processing the newest requests first—since the oldest requests are likely to time out soon—we avoid spending CPU cycles on expiring requests.

(17) Rodrigo Muñoz - GraphQL Live: Reactive Queries at Facebook - YouTube
* subscriptions are great, but assume you know what business event you want to listen for
* queries have may computed field that don't directly expose what upstream fields they're based on.
* if you have N subscriptions-on-mutations, you can add the field (potentially via a fragment) to each one
* and note, not every subscription that touches that fragment, only those subscriptions for business events that explicitly change the description, as otherwise you're over-fetching.
* all of these entail "a developer finds where that changes description"

* subscriptions & live queries are isomorphic--subscriptions are business change events, live queries are "state is now Y"

complications:

* over-observing: if query to backend ends up being a "select *"
* masked dependencies: if query response uses a cache hit, you miss what the underlying data dependency would have been for a cache miss
* partial reactivity: some data sources are react, some are not, and developers can't tell which will/will not be live.

* currently powering live likes/comments, typing indicators, live video comments, reactions, many more
* live queries: just rerun queries.
* if T+1 to T+2, value goes from 5 -> 15, subscriptions tell you "this went up by 10" (observing events), live queries tell you "this is now 15" (observing state)
* subscriptions require event system + domain-specific events, live queries require a reactive data layer

(17) Dan Schafer - GraphQL: Client-Driven Development - YouTube
* unapologetically driven by needs of frontend views
* language and runtime is built around that
* "think in graphs"--tried using SQL/FQL, did not work well
* "thin api layer"--there was still a huge monolith behind the iOS graphql (e.g. FB's 'ent' PHP monolith), they just replaced the FQL queries/proxies w/graphql queries/proxies

* "scaling models"--had been using coredata, so graphql query was mapped to coredata xml config. first by hand, then by codegen via .graphql files. so added fragments.
* only added fragments after proven need on the client.

* "scaling views"--large coredata files, mutable objects, but react/componentkit/litho one-way views now best practice, so were moving to flux across the board: immutable vended views. what are flux actions? command pattern. so added mutations.
* only added mutations after proven need on the client. "why top-level mutations"? it's flux. that is why there is no CRUD.

* "scaling updates"--subscriptions. 1st impl was 4 months long, prototyped with polling.

* "scaling the language"--added directives, @include(if), at last minute, cleaning up uglier field syntax.

everything was client-driven.

(17) The Past, Present, and Future of GraphQL Native - Nick Schrock @ GraphQL Europe - YouTube
* nick schrock, graphql co-creator, 2009-2017.
* "revenge of the monolith"
* original super-graph was 1:1 mapping to business/domain layer, from an assumed monolith (PHP/ent), driven by very backend team, delivered JSON/no client, no javascript/react, client was iOS native
* 1st open resource graphql was to JS ecosystem, but just due to relay, which was react+graphql glued together. leverage the react brand. very domain agnostic, JS focused, assumed microservices.
* JS/frontend loves it, backend hates it.
* see AirBNB, reconciling graphql & thrift. cultural problems. but ironically graphql type system can structure your clients.
* this context led to front-end developers sneaking a very small layer of graphql on top of unwitting/unconvinced backend developer micro-services
* micro-services: "those who don't learn from history will repeat it" ... "those who learn too much from history are doomed to overreact to it": history of software engineering is devs overreacting to horrific pain.
* SQL to NoSQL, data warehouse to data lake, templates to JSX
* micro-service is an over-correction. they are a tool, not a goal. goal is not "to move to micro-services". no, the goal is to "deliver business value".
* what separation are micro-services for? business logic verticals, repo verticals ("more git repos than engineers is insanity at large", "just use folders"), org boundaries (conway's law, but then reorgs lead to orphaned micro-services and repos), language choices (your org should bet on one, two, maybe three languages b/c code reuse is good), scaling constraints (this is a good reason).
* Attempting to decouple what is actually coupled is a terrible idea. Spreading business logic across systems. You'll end up with a distributed monolith.
* "Your affection for GraphQL is your subconscious telling you that it wants the good parts of your monolith back". You want a cohesive view of your business.
* future of GraphQL native: instead of zero-logic graphql, make a beefier graphql. talk to super-scalable store, talk to other micro-services, talk to capability-based services.
* very few graphql backends from scratch: we need fatter gateways. move cross-system business logic into the gateway. vertically-integrated toolkits. scaffolding/code layout. "rails for graphql".
* pivot graphql back to be a balance between back-end/front-end and not front-end only

Best Practices for GraphQL Clients - YouTube
* client should make caching data easy, dedup responses
* client should make paginated queries easy
* client allow us to make mutations
* co-location: have queries next to the code
* don't create shared fragments, purposefully use per-use fragments
* persisted queries: construct queries at runtime and cache them by id (all iOS/android using that)
* log all versions of a named query over time, and its perf by version
* query/response cached: persisted id+variables -> response. TTL/LRU.
* data consistency: use a normalized store so query cache has latest view of nodes.
* pagination: after=null/first=3 (segment1) and then after=3rd/first=3 (segment2) could see dups across inconsistent pages. have controller merge segments.
* mutations: simple mutation, "connectToFriend", can change lots of node: you're in my friend list, my news feed. "blockUser" undoes those.
* mutations: how do you know what to refetch? reuse UI fragments (will over fetch what hasn't change).

(17) Lessons from 4 Years of GraphQL - YouTube
how to evolve APIs:
* Would a new engineer understand this? (pick good names)
* What might version 2 look like? (name for org, not school/district)
* Model the data not endpoints/rpc calls (instead of flattening data into UI fields, e.g. storyAttachmentTitle, which means nothing in the real world, expose the product pointer)
* Will this work for all future clients?
* What if the implementation changes?
* do as little as possible in the graphql server itself (dan schafer 2016 talk)

how to build products:
* pick the biggest, most important problem, and drive priorities from that.
* graphql was built by product people, to solve product problems
* don't be beholden to existing best practices
* have a first client to drive concrete needs--embed on their team
* allow incremental adoption, try before you buy.
* evolve, don't rewrite. if your framework requires a rewrite, that is a bad sign.
* yagni, burden of proof is on new tools to prove they are worth investment.
* designers (dreamers) need editors (skeptics)
* software is about communication
* don't open source too early. too many users too soon can be bad.
* encourage taking measured risks (vs. tendency to buckle down and "do what works")
* trust your experienced people

Every day involved another round of intense pressure to meet the contradictory demands of absorbing advanced features from C++/Lisp/Haskell/Scala/Cyclone, pursuing a "fastest in the world" performance target, paying off technical debt for all the mistakes we'd made thus far, maintaining internal consistency and correctness, and stabilizing and shipping a finished product on some plausible timetable.
