BuddyZoo - Instant messager network visualization tool
(SOURCE:collision detection: BuddyZoo)- Very cool QUOTE This is cool. A CalTech student named Adam D'Angelo was thinking about Instant Messenger buddy lists, and realized they formed a massive network. If I have person A on my buddy list, and person A has person Q on their list -- then I am effectively linked to person Q. So D'Angelo created BuddyZoo -- a tool that lets you upload your buddy lists and then generate a visual map showing how you're linked to the world. For even more fun, he's crunched data on buddy lists from college students -- and determined that CalTech has the most popular students on the planet, heh. UNQUOTE

K-collector becomes smarter, making intranet bloggers happier.
Blogging's brilliance starts by eliminating metadata. Actually, by not having people ponder or type metadata. With Google, we usually don't miss it. Except behind firewalls. Google is blind to blogs behind my firewall. And my partners'. So finding stuff in intranets is ... frustrating. eVectors' k-collector is working the problem. Through little bits of magic code, k-collector suggests topics for your post. It guesses based on text in the post that matches existing topics. If people use the feature, I'm sure it'll get much better at guessing. (You know the drill: social filtering, post link analysis, thesaurus search, author patterns, longitudinal trending, etc.) Why should you care? Little to no extra effort to have well marked-up posts. Your posts are easier to find. Related posts are easier to find. More searches produce happy results, faster. All software should be so considerate. "akasig"

Much delayed continuation of the Web Services Browser
I promised that I'd walk through how to build a calender. But based on comments/feedback, this entry will discuss various ways in which a client can browse information gleaned from web services on the net and why I picked the model I did. There are basically three ways that information can turn into User Interface. Attach a lot of metadata to elements. Then have a general meta-data driven rendering engine that displays information using the metadata to do so. In essence the file explorer does this for files using the metadata of name, date last modified, and so on. For example, Salesforce.com exposes a surprisingly rich set of metadata for their elements that controls things like order in which items will be displayed, captions, and so on. While one can use this to dynamically build pages (which is what Salesforce.com does), this is a quite different model than the browser. It is a meta-data driven layout engine. This model works really well when you want to let people view and/or ...

Instant blognet; just add LDAP.
David Fletcher notes almost the whole government of the State of Utah received instant messaging accounts overnight. The IM service used existing user directories (Novell, no surprise since it's Utah) and user accounts to create the IM accounts. I'm sure they're linked, so lifecycle concerns like ID changes and personnel actions are automatic. That's why I want a weblog lifecycle API. So you can turn on weblogs for all of General Motors or the Royal Navy or the citizens of Iran. Overnight. To my knowledge, "manila" is the only blog server with an LDAP plug-in.

Beware Always/Never
Ugh, grey morning inside and out. How do we experience the fullness of our experience without drawing faulty conclusions? This feels so wonderful, I love feeling this way, I always want to feel this way This feels so awful, I never want to experience this again, I will never again let this happen. There is an attachment to something pleasurable or comforting that we want to prolong indefinitely, repeat as much as possible. Or there is a rejection of pain or suffering that we desperately want to avoid at any cost. We are rats and monkeys pressing the bar that stimulates the sweet spot in our brains or cowering in fear of the electrical jolt. So we try to determine what the recipe was that brought us to this point and then make a note of it so we can either do it again or avoid it. And while there isn't explicitly a Big White Researcher out there deliberately trying to fuck with and frustrate our attempts to make order out of chaos and derive rules where there are no laws, our ...

Never Fear Sir, For I Have a Cunning Plan...
I've posted 8 times in the past month, and 2 of my posts have contained links with a query string. Radio seems to have developed a charming habit of trashing the equal sign in a query string. This entry contained a garbage character in the query string, which which got replaced with some other garbage when I tried to edit it over email. At least this garbage is valid XML. The previous post that had a query string got trashed, and then Radio escaped my markup when I tried to fix it (that could have been my fault, trying to fix the post hastily). That post is staying the way it is, I've tried fixing it 3 times now. Radio seems to have a general problem with escaping characters and creating well-formed XML in general. I'm about ready to pull the plug on this and try something else. Cornerhost and Thoughtlocker seem to be reliable and offer most of what I want (LAMP, on a reasonable budget), though Thoughtlocker seems to give a bit more for the money and also provides Ruby. Then ...

Site Update
I hope you're all enjoying the speed of the site today and yesterday. We're continuing converting all popular and intensive database queries into using our memcached system instead. We're not done, though... we have one last query to convert, and then most of our 20 million+ page views per day won't even hit the databases. Because the databases are generally the limiting factor, involving slow moving parts, removing our dependence on them keeps making the site faster.We've also orded a bunch of new webservers, even though we don't need them. We just know from experience that web node CPU will be the next bottleneck... it always jumps back and forth between web servers and the backend. Now that the backend is perfectly scalable with memcache, all we have to do is keep buying web servers, which is easy.Also of note: We have some monster disk storage on its way and we're working on getting a lot more bandwidth. (or rather, getting better bandwidth rates by committing to higher ...
