Intreresting Find #23

Been a while since I posted on this series. But starting it again. Here are the latest few interesting finds I have stumbled across. Of course these are in no particular order.

  1. UTF 8 Everywhere – Argues the cause on why UTF-16 and Unicode is a default poor choice except for specialized libraries, which deal with text.
  2. Data discrimination for the poor – Means that if you are poor (i.e. not rich), then the internet you see and know might be different from the others. Big Data discrimination.
  3. Customer feedback to a Tour Operator – It’s enough to make you cancel your reservation.
  4. Gartner IT Symposium Factoids – Very cool to see the data on mobility and where we seem to be heading.
  5. OpenRemote – open source for IoT (Internet of Things) – think of it the glue stitching everything together.
  6. Generation Game – Businesses are worrying about how to manage different age groups with widely different expectations.
  7. Overtaxed and over there – Loopy tax rules spur expats to renounce their American citizenship.
  8. Greenhouse (alpha) – a creative coding toolkit for spatial interfaces.
  9. Dipping your hands in a data pool – with a LeapMotion
  10. Tesla Model S Rest API – enough said. 🙂
  11. Cozy Cloud – private cloud for your apps, data, which you control and this is open source.

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
