links for 2008-10-27
By webmink on Oct 26, 2008
The "life full" light has been on for the last week, so not much blogging has happened, but there were a few links:
- All MySQL's children
I think Matt has his conclusions exactly reversed, although I also agree with the commentor who says both activities grow the MySQL community and thus grow the opportunity for everyone.
- Amazon's new EC2 SLA
"Amazon takes monitoring very seriously and should take the lead by tracking, reporting, and proactively compensating customers when it lets them down." - I'd certainly agree that this SLA is no help to small-medium scale users.
- iNaturalist.org - A Community for Naturalists
This is a rather clever mashup of Wikipedia (for the descriptive text), Flickr (for CC-licensed images of things), Google Maps and more. The goal is to crowdsource observations of flora & fauna. Hope it does well.
Roy Fielding in defence of jargon (which I agree with) and in defence of his right to define REST narrowly (which I'm not so sure about).
- Wassup 2008
Watch it go viral. Lovely bit of film-making.
