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

LibreTaxi:Uber 的替代方案

應該是因為 #DeleteUber 的關係而冒到排行榜上的「LibreTaxi」(關於 #DeleteUber 的事情,可以參考「What You Need to Know About #DeleteUber」這邊的說明)。 看了官網的說明覺得還蠻特別的,看了 GitHub 上的 ro31337/libretaxi 說明才對於他運作方式稍微有感覺: 系統跑在 Firebase 上,用 Telegram 當溝通工具,用這樣的架構來建構系統... 然後專案從 2016 年四月開始做的。

《一九八四》登上 Amazon 銷售排行榜第一名

看起來是因為 Trump 就職的關係,讓《一九八四》登上 Amazon 的銷售排行榜第一名:「George Orwell’s 1984 Is Now the #1 Bestselling Book on Amazon」。 在 Best Sellers in Books 這邊可以看到:

Facebook 機房內的 IPv6 架構

Facebook 在「Legacy support on IPv6-only infra」這邊提到機房內主要的流量幾乎都是 IPv6 了: Today, 99 percent of our internal traffic is IPv6 and half of our clusters are IPv6-only. 不過只有一半的機器是 IPv6-only,這個比例看起來還有不少服務在 dual-stack 轉移階段... 然後從外部只有 15% 的流量是 IPv6: Globally, however, only 15 percent of people who … Continue reading

用人力就可以達到離心機的效果...

看到「This Human-Powered Paper Centrifuge Is Pure Genius」這個設計真的很巧妙... 全文刊登在 nature biomedical engineering 上:「Hand-powered ultralow-cost paper centrifuge」。 起源來自於小時候的玩具 (我也有印象,但忘記中文叫什麼了...): Here, we report an ultralow-cost (20 cents), lightweight (2 g), human-powered paper centrifuge (which we name ‘paperfuge’) designed on the basis of a theoretical model … Continue reading
