I started this post series with ten links per post. As time has gone by, I’ve started thinking ten links every few days might be too much for a reader to digest on top of their own reading burden. Naturally, I’m letting the number decline over time until I find a level I like the best. Right now that level is six per post, so let’s see how that feels.
In other news, I’ve been putting some work into a Discord bot to push traffic from content creators into Discord server channels. It’s a fun project with a simple initial scope, but tons of room to grow over time. The news in the US and around the world is so bleak that I’d rather not directly discuss it here.
Anyway, here are the links:
- A 50-minute presentation of Spotify’s approach to microservices.
- “What I haven’t Fixed Your Issue Yet”, an open letter from an OSS developer.
- Algorithms and data structures implemented in popular languages on Github.
- Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio forward competing plans to fund the public transit crisis in NYC.
- China commits to refusing key North Korean exports as part of the UN plan to curb the North’s missile program.
- After good news in Q2, Chinese data indicates a mixed picture with credit, industrial, and export growth all taking hits.
