High Performance Browser Networking

Note: In light of recent events, I am going to spend time backtracking my Twitter timeline and attempt to document some memorable moment. Apologies if these may be repetitive to you.

I highly recommend High Performance Browser Networking by Ilya Grigorik. Great overview and insights whether or not you are new or a veteran.

The book is from 2003 however. Thankfully, Ilya provided a “15 sec 2nd edition” when I asked on Twitter.







Taiwan: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

This is something share-worthy or even celebrate-worthy.

I was enthusiastic viewer of Last Week Tonight until I was stopped by compassion fatigue. After decades of exposure to late-night since Jon Stewart, I was looking for a break from having the news telling me what I should be angry about.

Yet, the issue of political status of Taiwan is surely something dear to me. I especially like the take-away — the place, the island, shouldn’t always just be mentioned in passing when talking about China; the people there deserve to decide their own future.

Something to make a note of.
