Where does engineering rep come from? Here's a Google engineer slagging on Amazon engineering, which they say mediocre. I don't think this is an unusual opinion, I've heard this from people both inside and outside of Google. Google has the best engineering, Amazon is mediocre.

Here's a mystery. This is major Google Chrome versions seen by us since February 15, 2020. Notice the sudden change in % from Google Chrome 69 to 78. Why?

Anyone else on Cloudflare or Linode seeing increased latency and inexplicable timeouts since around May 1? They don’t map to significant changes in server load. Requests just occasionally time out for no apparent reason. Retry and they load normally. (info from Pingdom)

Haven’t used HAProxy since Tumblr, but it was fantastic then. Anyone with recent experience using it as the reverse-proxy in front of your webservers, especially if it does your HTTPS decryption: Is it still awesome? Does it work well with LetsEncrypt + certbot or similar?

I’ve come to realize that my wardrobe is rather lacking in soft pants. 🤔 So I’d love to get your recommendations—what are your favorite soft pants, friends? PS Bonus points if they might be decent enough looking for a quick jaunt to the store or the like. 😅

Seeing a bunch of folks in my mentions saying “TIL Google doesn’t use Kubernetes” and ... 😐 I’m surprised there are people who think Google *does* run on k8s. Even GKE (Google’s hosted Kubernetes offering) runs on Borg, which afaik, is far more sophisticated and battle-tested.

I’ve found little difference in long-term maintenance time between rolling my own and using third-party services/libraries in practice. Services change and go away. Libraries change and add complexity to the build and project. At least when it’s your code, you’re in control.

How do I you weigh initial implementation time of 1-2 days against the cost of upkeep and maintenance of home-rolled components?

Every month I review my goals and reflect on my progress, practices, and mindset. Looking back, I note that in 7 of the 9 last months, I was pretty disappointed in myself. There were always lots that wasn't going to plan. Everything always took longer to finish than I’d expected.

Some personal news: Once in a while, in the course of a long and lucky career, you’re struck by a moment of professional clarity: I’ve accomplished what I wanted to at this company, and it’s time to move on. 1/10

Weird thought: Merkle DAG based things end up having centralized ownership due to root nodes. Stuff like #ipfs or #dat might converge on large "root nodes" acting as authorities. append-only log based things like #ssb or #cabal are more flat and local

I've been wondering whether now is the right time for disruptive changes to the (web) ecosystem or it is better to hold them back until things return towards normal. We'll see how this goes. Stay safe out there!

I’d give up the 5% discount to have @WholeFoods go back to the way it was before Amazon bought it. Everything else is worse now (and getting even worse). Fewer cashiers, long lines, less-consistent and messier stock, and crowded aisles full of Prime-delivery shopping agents.
