  • Brewer's CAP Conjecture is False. Jim Starkey makes the case the CAP is crap.
  • Kaazing Pushes Web Sockets to Make Browsers Real Time. Bi-directional communication comes to the web, but shouldn't sockets be able to accept connections too?
  • 4 Months with Cassandra, a love story. Cloudkick likes its Linear scalability, Massive write performance, Low operational costs. We'll likely keep moving more data into Cassandra as we need to, but for some data the ability to write arbitrary SQL queries is still very useful.
