I think it would be really cools to mount all of these pictures in some sort of a display.
“Million Base is a database of 2.2 million chess games. Steve Tung (@_tungs_) visualized chess piece journeys based on this data, for each piece on the board. Above is the footprint for the white knight. Each thin line represents 500 moves, and from what looks like a little bit of random noise to offset each line, you see a more prominent path for more frequent hops.”
I am really happy that more and more good information about women software developers is coming out. This is about Margaret Hamilton who led the MIT Instrumentation Lab that developed the software for the Apollo Guidance Computer. If you’re interested, the source code is also available.
When I was leading engineering at nCircle (now a part of Tripwire), we developed a saying that firewalls are like that Farside cartoon with the polar bear taking a bite out of an igloo–crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. Well, this article too finds little value in firewalls over time and makes a great case for why. A good read and watch but the video is not safe for some work environments.
An interesting analysis of what happens to subcultures. I find it pretty accurate from my own experiences.
