- Thread Pools and Erlang Models
- Languages – Funny to see the similarities of Dave’s “closure-based Ruby” proposal and Clojure’s syntax (which fits on two slides). I have a feeling this Lisp thing might be a good candidate for experimenting with programming language concepts
Kevin Seal @Coding the Architecture – Conway’s Law – Any organization that designs a system (defined broadly) will produce a design whose structure is a copy of the organization’s communication structure.
Martin Fowler – Database Thaw – The natural question to ask about these products is why they should prevail when the ODBMSs failed. What’s changed in the environment that could thaw the relational grip? There are many hypotheses about why relational has been so dominant – my opinion is that their dominance is due less to their role in data management than their role in integration.

- Measuring Technical Debt – Martin Fowler recently posted an interesting piece about how one would go about measuring technical debt, and I’ll add a few other items to consider.

Nick Malik – Using the PMO to measure the behavior of the customer – Most tools capture basic statistics, and then let the IT group add whatever project stats that they want. Today, I want to examine those additional statistics: what measures should the project management office be tracking?

- Breakthrough Web-Tier Solutions with Record-Breaking Performance - With the explosive growth of the Internet, increasing complexity of user requirements, and wide choice of hardware, operating systems, and middleware, IT executives are facing new challenges in their application infrastructures. Rapid expansion of the application tier has resulted in significant cost and complexity, and many organizations are simply running out of datacenter space, power, and cooling.

Steve Jones – If you get made redundant – As someone who has been made redundant twice (startups that didn’t) and fired once (saying that a company would go bust in 12 months if it didn’t change its approach, I was wrong…. it took 18 months) and who graduated during the last downturn I thought I’d give some advice to anyone who finds themselves in IT without a job in the next year
Ted Neward – The Myth of Discovery – What is it about the software industry that just collectively refuses to accept that there might be lots of interesting research on topics that aren’t technical yet still something that we can use? Why do we feel so compelled to trumpet our own “innovations” to ourselves, when in fact, they’ve been long-known in dozens of other contexts?
