Tab Sweep · I guess there’s no harm in an oc­ca­sion­al links+­com­men­tary dump; af­ter al­l, ev­ery­body does it. Item: Bits at the Edge is the blog of Mo­toro­la CTO Pad­mas­ree War­rior. The en­tries are too long and dip in­to marketing-speak, but there’s good writ­ing and orig­i­nal thought in there too and I’ve sub­scribed. How could any­one in com­put­ing not need to know what Motorola’s CTO is think­ing? Item: Via Joe Gre­go­rio, PDF slide­ware on The EBay Ar­chi­tec­ture. This ought to be re­quired read­ing for ev­ery­one in this busi­ness whose ti­tle con­tains the words “Web” or “Architect”. I won­der if this sort of wis­dom is be­ing taught in uni­ver­si­ties? Item: Ad­vanced Mes­sage Queu­ing Pro­to­col (AMQP) Spec­i­fi­ca­tions has crossed my radar a few times re­cent­ly. If you re­al­ly be­lieve in loose cou­pling and asyn­chronous mes­sag­ing (as we all claim to), then you be­lieve in some­thing like this. Item: How to find out which font has which char­ac­ters; some­thing I’ve nev­er known how to do on OS X. Item: Ugan­dans grab ‘pig-for-name’ deal; it’s hard not to have com­pli­cat­ed feel­ings about this one.
