Monorepos: Please don’t! – Matt Klein – Medium
He writes with an assumption of "scale" that's a silly one to make.

If I were starting a company today I would absolutely start with a monorepo, reap all of those benefits he tried to shoot down, and take it all the way to the bank for _years_ until I got lucky enough to get big enough to experience those problems. Then I'd choose whether to let people make more repos or go the Google route. Hell, by then, Git or Mercurial might Just Work™.

go-cloud/samples/wire at master · google/go-cloud
Wire is both a potentially very useful bit of code on its own plus this serves as a tidy example of how to use `go generate` and build tags together to work with generated code without totally bailing on the Go toolchain.

Announcing Managed CockroachDB: The Geo-Distributed Database as a Service | Cockroach Labs
It's about to get a lot easier to try Cockroach DB which was impressive if too risky to bet on a few years ago and is, I'm sure, more so now. It's still not Spanner, though; it's probably more like F1 or Megastore+SQL.

The red flags and magic numbers that investors look for in your startup's metrics - 80 slide deck included! at andrewchen
Lots of good details on business growth metrics investors want to see. They're perhaps pretty consumer/hit-focused but still useful in other contexts with different constants.

Adam Jacob on Twitter: "Paul Cormier says it clearly. Red Hat isn’t an open source company. They are an enterprise software company with an open source development model. That’s the thing anybody who thinks there will “never be another Red Hat” do
This is a really interesting and subtle difference that I didn't appreciate when it mattered to my business. Red Hat is not an open source project. There's no github.com/redhat/rhel page with a friendly README and quickie compile instructions. RHEL is a big, complex piece of enterprise software and it just so happens that, if you have the time and know where to look, you can cobble together all the source code and compile it.

Liberating Distributed Consensus - Heidi Howard
I can't really understand the utility of consensus presented as the literature tends to in which only one value can ever be decided. And, even with that difficulty, these alrogithms that claim consensus in one round trip don't seem useful given they revert to two round trips after the initial epoch.

How did we end up with containers?
No, no, no: "If you’re building a container artifact, testing it, and then deploying it, it matters less if your build process is held together with spit and chewing gum. As long as someone can work the magic and get a container spit out, and it works, then it works."
