Transitioning from Google READER to Feedly and other RSS services :: Reader will shut down 1 July 2013
"We have been working on a project called Normandy which is a feedly clone of the Google Reader API – running on Google App Engine. When Google Reader shuts down, feedly will seamlessly transition to the Normandy back end. So if you are a Google Reader user and using feedly, you are covered: the transition will be seamless. If you are a Google Reader, give feedly a try before July 1st, and you will be able to migrate seamlesly for: iOS, Android, Chrome, and Safari." \\ Also recommend BACKING UP Reader data via http://www.dataliberation.org/google... which will create a zip file containing subscriptions.xml and useful json files. \\ Alternative services: http://www.zdnet.com/goodbye... - Adriano from Bookmarklet

"Feedspot [public beta] isn't perfect—there are no mobile apps (although visiting Feedspot on your phone gives you a functional mobile version of the site), and while the service is free, some of the best features are only available to "Gold" users (including the sharing and sub-feed features we mentioned, along with faster feed updates and priority support) which you only become by... more... - Adriano
I guess I need to finally decide this weekend, eh? - Amit Patel
28 June 2013: Feedly now does *not* depend on its browser extension. Thus it performs much better on the desktop Chrome browser than on Firefox, due to faster V8 javascript processing. (Runs on IE and Opera, too, but no comment there from me :-) Firefox will stall on Feedly, requiring a restart of the browser (click off the Feedly tab in the restore menu). \\ Feedly app for Android... more... - Adriano

Randall Stross :: Secrets of Y COMBINATOR . [2012, from _The Launch Pad_ ... most successful start-ups, Paul Graham says, are the ones that completely remove distractions: "They just sleep, eat, exercise, and program."] - http://www.vanityfair.com/busines...
Randall Stross :: Secrets of Y COMBINATOR . [2012, from _The Launch Pad_ ... most successful start-ups, Paul Graham says, are the ones that completely remove distractions: "They just sleep, eat, exercise, and program."]
"Paul Buchheit, a Y.C. partner, points out that in Y.C.’s portfolio “the number one company is worth more than [the] next 199 companies combined, while number two is worth more than [the] next 198 combined, and so on.” One could say that the outliers—Dropbox and Airbnb—are the only ones that matter to the Y.C. fund. Perhaps it would be better to say that Y.C. is in the hits business, and uncertainty about which start-up will become the one monstrous hit benefits many founders who are funded. Graham and the other Y.C. partners tell the founders that start-ups fail only when founders give up. It is not necessarily in the interest of founders to follow that advice indefinitely, however." - Adriano from Bookmarklet

Etymology + Entomology :: First computer BUG documented - http://www.jamesshuggins.com/h...
Etymology + Entomology :: First computer BUG documented
"The term was use during Thomas Edison's life to mean an industrial defect. In Hawkin's New Catechism of Electricity, an 1896 handbook, the term "bug" is used to a limited extent to designate any fault or trouble in the connections or working of electric apparatus. In 1947, Grace Murray Hopper was working on the Harvard University Mark II Aiken Relay Calculator (a primitive computer). On 9 September 1947, when the machine was experiencing problems, an investigation showed that there was a moth trapped between the points of Relay #70 in Panel F. The operators removed the moth and affixed it to the log. The entry reads: "First actual case of bug being found." The word went out that they had "debugged" the machine and the term "debugging a computer program" was born." - Adriano from Bookmarklet

google's DART :: a new language for structured web programming - http://www.dartlang.org/
google's DART :: a new language for structured web programming
"You can start coding without types and add them later as needed. We believe Dart will be great for writing large web applications. Dart code can be executed in two different ways: either on a native virtual machine or on top of a JavaScript engine by using a compiler that translates Dart code to JavaScript. This means you can write a web application in Dart and have it compiled and run on any modern browser. The language comes with a set of basic libraries and tools for checking, compiling, and running Dart code." - Adriano from Bookmarklet
"Microsoft's JavaScript team said the Dart sales pitch argues "JavaScript has fundamental flaws, and to support these scenarios requires a 'clean break' from JavaScript...We disagree with this point of view." Microsoft's stance makes it look like it'll be very hard to build Dart support into Internet Explorer. Microsoft remains influential with programmers, and it just offered a very public vote of no confidence." http://news.cnet.com/8301-30... - Adriano
webkit-dev: "This is an academic exercise as it doesn't match webkit's goal of being a standards compliant engine, and also has dubious advantage even when supported -- multiple languages already compile to EcmaScript, there is no reason that Dart can't as well." https://lists.webkit.org/piperma... - Adriano

Adobe Abandons Mobile FLASH Development :: HTML5 wins ! [Jobs was right ;-] - http://www.wired.com/gadgetl...
Adobe Abandons Mobile FLASH Development :: HTML5 wins ! [Jobs was right ;-]
"In an abrupt about-face in its mobile software strategy, Adobe will soon cease developing its Flash Player plug-in for mobile browsers, according to an e-mail sent to Adobe partners. Adobe has signaled that it knows, as Steve Jobs predicted, the end of the Flash era on the web is coming soon. The e-mail says that Adobe will no longer continue to “adapt Flash Player for mobile devices to new browser, OS version or device configurations,” instead focusing on alternative application packaging programs and the HTML5 protocol. “Our future work with Flash on mobile devices will be focused on enabling Flash developers to package native apps with Adobe AIR for all the major app stores,” the quoted e-mail says. The move indicates a massive backpedaling on Adobe’s part, a company who championed its Flash platform in the face of years of naysaying about its use on mobile devices. Despite Flash’s near ubiquity across desktop PCs, many in the greater computing industry, including, famously, Apple Computer, have denounced the platform as fundamentally unstable on mobile browsers, and an intense battery drain." - Adriano from Bookmarklet

*nix, "Everything is a file" :: so find open files with lsof - http://www.ibm.com/develop...
*nix, "Everything is a file" :: so find open files with lsof
"Not only is regular data accessed through files, but also network connections and, often, hardware. In some cases, an entry appears when you request a directory listing through ls. In other cases, such as Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) sockets, there is no directory listing. But behind the scenes, a file descriptor has been assigned to the application, regardless of the nature of the file, providing a common interface for applications to interact with the underlying operating system. Because the list of open file descriptors of an application give a great deal of information about the application itself, being able to peer into this list is helpful. The utility to do so is called lsof, which means "list open files." This utility is available for nearly every UNIX flavor." \\ Good introductory tutorial + recovering a deleted file via /proc - Adriano from Bookmarklet

Dot-com era is over :: anything goes for TLD top-level domain names - http://online.wsj.com/article...
Dot-com era is over :: anything goes for TLD top-level domain names
Dot-com era is over :: anything goes for TLD top-level domain names
ICANN "the organization that regulates the world's Internet domain names approved changes that could allow anyone to register any name they like in almost any language as a Web address. The new rules affect what the industry calls top-level domain names, the familiar dot-coms and dot-nets that end every Web address. Now, instead of having to use one of those existing forms, users will be able to end their addresses with the name of their company, such as dot-Ford, or their city, like dot-Berlin. The idea behind the change—which likely will need another 18 months before any of the new names become active—was to create more choice on the Internet and potentially spur innovation. A company or government or individual that wants a domain-name suffix must pay Icann $185,000 just to apply. The application itself is several hundred pages long." - Adriano from Bookmarklet
post by Evan Williams, worth considering "Five Reasons Domains Are Getting Less Important" http://evhead.com/2011... "Too many startups have suffered a stupid name to get the domain that fit. Hopefully, entrepreneurs will feel less pressure to do that as the world becomes more auto-complete/app/mobile driven and less-dot-com biased." - Adriano
