    21 This is a set of short stories and essays about living in New York The quality of them ranges from outstanding to merely good The ones I found less interesting tended to be too cerebral and used to me

  • Prediction: Sun is Building a Parallel Distributed File System (evanjones.ca)
    about being disruptive I predict that he is referring to a new design and not something based on the pNFS standard that NetApp Panasas and Sun are working on If Sun isn t working on something like this they should be In my opinion parallel distributed file systems provide much better scalability and reliability than traditional file servers To add more storage or performance you just need to plug in

  • The Google File System (evanjones.ca)
    that many of the people involved in this paper have been involved in distributed file systems for a while Sanjay Ghemawat was involved in the Harp file system Howard Gobioff and Fay Chang were involved in the Network Attached Secure Disk research project at CMU which to my non expert knowledge is the first project that proposed separating metadata from data in distributed file systems which is the core design

  • Secure Email is Dead (evanjones.ca)
    not the first time I have written about this Digital signatures for email have been a complete failure To be useful the people I communicate with need to use and understand them For that to happen we need people to understand that signatures and encryption are useful and someone needs to come up with a clever design that makes it simple Let s face it encryption and signatures are complicated

  • Gunderloy, Mike. Coder to Developer. Alameda, CA, USA: Sybex Inc., 2004. ISBN: 078214327X (evanjones.ca)
    Spolsky I do not recommend this book It attempts to deliver the extra knowledge that people with a fresh computer science degree need to become good software developers but it focuses too much on the details It also reads a bit like an advertisement for Microsoft s developer tools A much better book with a similar focus is The Pragmatic Programmer That said there were good sections and advice here

  • The Landscape of Parallel Computing Research (evanjones.ca)
    with everything in the paper but I did learn a few things and it does give me some hope that we will be able to work with the very parallel architectures we will be seeing soon My favourite part They present a really good really simple argument for why it might be good to have asymmetrical architectures with one big complicated fast CPU for sequential code and a whole lot
