Four short links: 10 July 2009

Network File System, Internet Use, Lovelace Comic, Search User Interfaces

  1. Ceph — open source distributed filesystem from UCSC. Ceph is built from the ground up to seamlessly and gracefully scale from gigabytes to petabytes and beyond. Scalability is considered in terms of workload as well as total storage. Ceph is designed to handle workloads in which tens thousands of clients or more simultaneously access the same file, or write to the same directory-usage scenarios that bring typical enterprise storage systems to their knees.

  2. Daily Internet Activities, 2000-2009 — Pew Charitable Trust’s Internet usage survey. We’ve finally broken 50% of Americans using the Internet daily. Twitter is almost a rounding error. (via dhowell on Twitter)
  3. The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage — fantastic comic, with end-notes that explain how Babbage and Lovelace’s lives and works are reflected in the action of the comic. (via suw on Twitter)
  4. Search User Interfaces — full text of this book about the different (successful and un-) interfaces to search. (via sebchan on Twitter)
