Interesting Tech Links
« on: February 26, 2006, 08:28:36 AM »
'cause I know there are a few of us in here that could use a new link or two on tech stuff. Slashdot only goes so far.

The forums are useless, but there are some good articles that I can relate to.

I'm your host, Joel Spolsky, a software developer in New York City. Since 2000, I've been writing about software development, management, business, and the Internet on this site.

A lot of very good articles and general advice. Been following him for a few months now and when he writes, it is always interesting.

http://www.roguesci.org

Rogue Science, a great website for all that knowledge that everyone thinks is "illegal" or such. The knowledge isn't, and the free flow of information is vital to not being defenseless when the crap hits the fan. Check it out.

As a side note, the IP of the site has been blocked by various organizations, so if you can't get to it, chances are your ISP/government (Germany is one)/school is blocking it. If you can, use a proxy server to get past it. Of course, if you're using AOL, Roguesci is blocking YOU.

Beware: this is insanity on wheels. You will want to play with it.

I think I just wet myself:

http://www.getfirebug.com/

How come I didn't know about this until now?

This thing is the most awesome web developement tool I have EVER seen...for HTML and CSS that is.

Inspecting the HTML is awesome!!!! You have to see it to understand I think.

(already found two formatting bugs I have been looking for. A 404 on the forum index and why the '1' shows up on the codex left menu. I am quickly getting to like this more and more.

Another plaything... weeeeeeee!

http://www.bubbl.us/ is a little tool for helping creativity along. You can create bubbles linked into a tree, and organize content that way. It looks like a funny little thing to play with, so fool around, the controls are very easy.

What I'm missing is the possiblity of linking more things together from above... well, maybe in a further version. Also the auto-aligning goes sometimes against my design, but is easy to fix. Should the first thing be fixed some day, I may be even using it occassionaly - nothing about mapping out those many-scrolled submissions! (Plus it can be shared.)

reCAPTCHA

Digitizing Books One Word at a Time

A CAPTCHA is a program that can tell whether its user is a human or a computer. You've probably seen them — colorful images with distorted text at the bottom of Web registration forms. CAPTCHAs are used by many websites to prevent abuse from "bots," or automated programs usually written to generate spam. No computer program can read distorted text as well as humans can, so bots cannot navigate sites protected by CAPTCHAs.

About 60 million CAPTCHAs are solved by humans around the world every day. In each case, roughly ten seconds of human time are being spent. Individually, that's not a lot of time, but in aggregate these little puzzles consume more than 150,000 hours of work each day. What if we could make positive use of this human effort? reCAPTCHA does exactly that by channeling the effort spent solving CAPTCHAs online into "reading" books.


Funny idea that has some usefulness, ain't it? Hat tip to hackszine.

I hesitate to post it here, as it has wider applications, but in itself, it is for software development:

A Group Is Its Own Worst Enemy

The article is about group dynamics, and their effects on social software (particularly the negative ones). If you have a little time, and any of the two interest you, go read it.

(Oh, and: we seem to be doing pretty good by those standards. :) )

Ah yes, the wonderful article about social software and groupings online. I remember reading that a year or two ago. Amazing how stuff gets around on the 'net, eh?

And yeah, we are doing quite good by those standards. "Higher rank == more votes" and whatnot.

AG: Heck of a kid, aye? Seen it before, but it's still amazing. (On the other hand, my old trig teacher could do square roots of insane levels in his head. Admittedly, I think he was using a formula, or rules of square roots, but still quite amazing.)



Old, and hasn't been updated in a while, but a decent webpage for various activities that use different algorithms:

http://www.geocities.com/ResearchTriangle/Lab/1767/pol.html

"Sick of hearing people name off algorithms that you should use, yet you have no clue what they are, much less how to implement them? Sick of people who won't take the time to explain algorithms and instead reference you to a book that you can't afford? Well, here's some info to help you out, for both the beginner and the advanced."

I found it quite helpful when I was looking up ray tracing, and I learned new stuff about exactly how some compression algorithms work.
P(A|B) = P(B|A)*P(A)/P(B)
