Open-Core: The Emperor’s New Clothes - http://blogs.gartner.com/brian_p...
Open Core, if you’re not aware, is being pushed by many start up companies as a new approach to delivering products combining open source and proprietary software. There may be others nodding in agreement that this in fact a dazzling new business model. Regardless of the way that vendor struts, you should trust your instincts. You’ll soon realize that the fabric making up the garb of their stated innovation is a fabrication. They’ll then be exposed for exactly who they are – a good old fashion software vendor. Just like every other one you’ve come to know. - Nick Sieger

Fastest. Messaging. Ever. - zeromq - http://www.zeromq.org/
ØMQ looks like an embeddable networking library but acts like a concurrency framework. It gives you sockets that carry whole messages across various transports like inproc, IPC, TCP, and multicast. You can connect sockets N-to-N with patterns like fanout, pubsub, task distribution, and request-reply. It's fast and small enough to be the fabric for clustered products. Its asynchronous I/O model gives you scalable multicore applications, built as asynchronous message-processing tasks. It has over twenty language APIs and runs on most operating systems. ØMQ is open source and fully supported by iMatix. - Nick Sieger

nvie.com » Blog Archive » A successful Git branching model - http://nvie.com/git-model
In this post I present the development model that I’ve introduced for all of my projects (both at work and private) about a year ago, and which has turned out to be very successful. I’ve been meaning to write about it for a while now, but I’ve never really found the time to do so thoroughly, until now - Nick Sieger

Why bother with threading in jruby? Because it’s easy. » Robot Librarian - http://robotlibrarian.billdueber.com/why-bot...
Lately on the #code4lib IRC channel, several of us have been knocking around different versions (in several programming languages) of programs to read in a ginormous file and do some processing on each line. I noted some speedups related to multi-threading, and someone (maybe rsinger?) said, basically, that to bother with threading for a one-off simple program was a waste. Well, it turns out I’ve been trying to figure out how to deal with threading in jruby anyway. And I think I have a pretty elegant solution — a generic “threaded each” I’m calling threach. - Nick Sieger

Three implicit contexts in Ruby - 世界線航跡蔵 - http://yugui.jp/articles/846
Ruby always holds the reference to a class as well as self. But there is no way to retrieve it directly. It is more implicit than self. If you define a method without giving an explicit receiver, in other words, if you define a method with the normal method definition syntax, the default definee will have the method as an instance method. - Nick Sieger

Pure CSS3 Animated AT-AT Walker from Star Wars | Internet Marketing Blog - http://blog.optimum7.com/anthony...
In this article we’ll quickly walk-through the process of creating a CSS3 animation of an AT-AT Walker from The Empire Strikes Back. We’ll start off by reviewing some CSS3 properties that made this animation possible. Then, follow up with a list of the sections required to construct the AT-AT and the CSS3 code to move each section. I wont go too deep into the explanations of CSS3. There are various resources online to get you up to speed with CSS3. - Nick Sieger

How to build latest Ruby on Windows - The Empty Way - http://blog.emptyway.com/2009...
So you want to build the latest Ruby on Windows. Maybe, you’re working on some new RubySpec tests or would like to see what’s coming with Ruby 1.9.2. At any rate, building Ruby on Windows is much easier than I originally thought, and you don’t even forced to install Microsoft compilers at al - Nick Sieger
