懷舊技術系列...

在「Stopping The Internet Of Noise - A Useful Internet Back Again」這邊看到作者在思考現在的工具有很多干擾 (像是 Social Network 這樣的網站),反倒是傳統的一些技術與工具更專注在解決問題本身。 像是 Usenet: IRC: RSS reader: 有種考古懷舊系列的感覺... 題外化,看到他用的是 BazQux 這個 RSS reader,來測試看看感覺如何,如果可以的話就從 Feedly 換過去好了...

Reddit 主要是用 Python 寫的,這邊介紹了他們歷年來的 Code Deploy 系統:「The Evolution of Code Deploys at Reddit」。 最早期的時候 (2007 到 2010) 是用 rsync 更新程式碼,然後跑個迴圈用 ssh 連進去重跑: # build the static files and put them on the static server `make -C /home/reddit/reddit static` `rsync /home/reddit/reddit/static … Continue reading

美國聯邦法院認定 Open Source License 是有效的強制性合約

這是是韓國廠商 Hancom 在加州被告上法院:「A federal court has ruled that an open-source license is an enforceable contract」。 But after it began using Ghostscript in its software in 2013, Hancom did neither: it did not open-source its software, and it did not pay … Continue reading

在教育領域用 KPI 制度的結果

這邊提到在教育領域所設計的制度所期望帶來的效果,與實際帶來的效果的差異:「Every attempt to manage academia makes it worse」。 出自「Academic Research in the 21st Century: Maintaining Scientific Integrity in a Climate of Perverse Incentives and Hypercompetition」這篇論文。 這邊左邊的 Incentive 都是可被量化的方式,而中間有預期的效果,右邊則是實際發生的效果。跟台灣校園裡看到的情況很接近。 可以看出來,你對用腦吃飯的人設計 KPI 制度,大概都是這樣的下場 XDDD
