some links for 9 october 2006
- alexadex, "where players
compete for fame and glory by buying and selling shares in sites on the
world wide web. The price of a share is set at the site's daily reach
per million, according to alexa.com."
looking to see if the source code is available, this could be useful for
a project i'm exploring.
- sandboxie, a simple storage
write buffer. not quite sure how it works, it looks like it just sandboxes
a program. this could be useful for malware analysis, if they don't
detect the methods used to sandbox (and if the technology properly buffers
Optimization, a neat page discussing some of the ways to optimize code
correctly. i don't write ASM, so i doubt that any ASM i write could be
faster than the compiler's optimizations.
Offers New, Funky Ways to Eat Your Greens, spinach replacements from
NPR. some of these sound tastier than spinach, too.
- Google puts lid on new products, "That is a big change in the way we run the company," Schmidt said, describing Google's previous attitude as, "Just get this stuff built and get it out -- don't worry about the integration."
looks like they finally wised up. google's been half-assing a lot of their new
stuff lately, for a couple of years now. hopefully they'll go back and
is not crazy, where om malik and several others note that google's
likelihood of buying YouTube is lower than most people think, despite
news to the contrary. why in the world would google buy something
they already have, even if it is better and more liked by the community?
why would they risk the copyright lawsuits, even if they do have some
success in defending against them? a box of chainsaws ... buying YouTube,
despite it's obvious love by the world and such, is like sticking
your hand in a box of chainsaws. you'll get eaten alive by the lawsuits.
update: and yet they're doing the deal.
