随着第一方出版物结束,伟大的内容出版实验下一个什么?

本周早些时候,我读了一个由记者写作的故事,用于宣布那种媒体betway娱乐官网pivoting awayfrom employing a team of journalists and editors to run a number of “first party” publications on the platform.

When Medium introduced the concept of publications, it seemed somewhat like the attaching of a rudder — to give a directionless ship a heading, and a purpose. The engineering team had built a wonderful publishing platform, but nobody quite knew how best to use it. …


关于生活,过去,未来的午餐时间和我们沿途的道路。

在今天早上和朋友一起发送消息的同时,让我震惊,生活可以与“选择自己的冒险”书相比。

如果你从未见过选择自己的冒险书,他们就是四十多年前的所有愤怒。你会读这本书的一篇文章,导致读者决定使主角接下来的事情。每个潜在的动作都列出,页码转向,以便阅读下一个会发生的情况。

Once you start thinking about the adventure book, you start wondering about…


The magic of the internet reduces distance to a voice in our ear, a face in our hand, and hope in our heart.

I have been thinking this evening about the friends I have made around the internet during the time I have been writing an online journal. All sorts of people, from all over the world. Younger people, older people, different races, religions, cultures and backgrounds.

文字真的很奇妙,哈哈s the ability to subtract physical appearance, wealth, and location — leaving the really important things on the table — thoughts, ideas, dreams, hopes and stories.

I’ve always been a sucker for a great story. When I have time to sit down and catch up with the…


寻找周边上的安静的人。他们没有机会在阳光下,因为屁股帽偷了太阳椅。

Falling off the internet bike

Over the course of the last several months, after vanishing from the internet for entire days (我知道,令人震惊!),在我的回归上,我已经羞怯地评论了“堕落互联网自行车”。

生命经常被联系在推文的推文,即时消息,照片,博客帖子,评论,喜欢,心,股票,重新博客以及其他任何别人构成“社交互联网”的飓风中,让我走出旋转的飓风 - 让我处于隐喻我自己制作的泥泞的水坑,想知道如何最好地回到我的脚并追求假装。

Here’s the thing — during the periods away from the internet…


它发生在我身上,取消其他人成为反过来取消的令人反感的声音。

有时在浏览社交互联网时,我注意到算法时间轴缺席的名称一段时间。取消了我敢于质疑的名字 - 无论多么悄悄 - 他们的肥皂盒。

奥巴马在青年峰会的话来思考;

“这种纯洁的想法和你从未受到影响,你总是在政治上”醒来“和所有这些东西,你应该快速克服。世界凌乱;有含糊不清的。做真正好东西的人有缺陷。“

如果您过滤掉不落入的声音,存在危险......


Late night thoughts about the stories our shared words weave

这是一个奇怪的事情,这个强大的“互联网”

我可以在凌晨坐在一个变暗的房间里,在一个小的硅和塑料中挖掘一块小板,把我的思想排空到它的键盘。在眨眼间,我的言语,思想,观点和想法将在全世界传播。

Machines will read the words and store them for tomorrow, for next year, and for countless decades to come.

我走了后,未来几代人可能会回顾痕迹,我把拼图的部分留在一起;我是谁,......


Exploring the origins, evolution, and fragmentation of the meaning of agile software development.

Let’s call everything Agile

在过去的二十年中,我曾在多种软件开发项目上工作,管理者以某种方式标记了“敏捷”。我想也许斯科特亚当斯最准确地描述了他的“尖尖的老板”宣称的情况:

“我们将尝试称为”敏捷编程“的东西。这意味着没有更多的规划,没有更多的文件。只需开始编写代码并抱怨“。

以下是项目经理喜欢计划,他们喜欢文档。他们可能没有read该文件,但计划为他们提供与甘特图标一起玩的机会,并且文档往往是可计入的。地狱 - 我无法想象......


对发明世界的人们介绍我们认为这么多,以及在哪里可以了解更多关于他们的信息。

我曾经与计算机合作过,我对技术突破背后的人类故事令人着迷 - 改变世界的人。我在下面带来了一些更突出的名字,引入了他们对世界的影响力,我们现在需要这么多。

J. C. R. Licklider

1962年10月,J.C.R.Licklider被任命为ARPA的“信息处理技术办公室”(IPTO)负责人 - “美国国防部高级研究项目署”。

1963年,他向他的同事们致函概述了建立时间分享网络的早期挑战......


The one where I stop drinking coffee, and brace for a self inflicted mental and physical rebellion.

一个不健康的关系

I think it’s fair to say my relationship with caffeine has become somewhat unhealthy. After working as a software and web developer for decades, coffee became as much a part of the day as getting dressed on a morning. I get up, have a shower, brush my teeth, get dressed, and then put the kettle on for the first coffee of the day.

I began to suspect I might have a problem some time ago — when mentioning to friends that I often drink coffee late at night. Apparently, this should prevent me from sleeping. I can quite confidently recount…


How and why open source software development continues to change the world for the better

什么是开源软件?

Before launching into the various benefits of open source software, it’s perhaps worth defining what open source software actually is.

A visit toOpenSource.com.reveals the following:

“开源软件是具有源代码的软件,任何人都可以检查,修改和增强”

也许最着名的开源软件开发项目是GNU Linux - 密切关注各种项目,使互联网和万维网成为可能。

Linux grew out of the commercialisation of Unix, built by a community of developers that valued transparency, cooperation, and sharing over commercial rights, licensing, and secrecy. Essays such as…
