You can't exactly nurture a consumer based economy to support your profits, then complain that it's not producing enough builders.
What is the most efficient, and ordered, way to assemble a world-class kitchen?
Many of us don't have the budget (especially when coming out of college) to buy all the crazy-awesome tools that make for a world class kitchen in one go, so we have to slowly purchase items as our budget allows and/or old cheaper items get used up. Do you have a recommended order, from a batchelor/ette's first egg pan to elaborate computerized sous-vide, in which someone can build their own world-class kitchen over several years?
The OpenStack infrastructure team is running largest cloud-based continuous deployment environment I've ever seen, and they're more than happy to give people introductions to it.
I have a hosting account at pair.com - that way I could share it with my classmates. The downside was that the internet in some of the classrooms was spotty, for which I fell back to paper/pencil.
Create a MediaWiki for yourself, and crossreference as you go? I did this for my MBA 5 years ago, and it worked wonders.
Google's silence on the matter is telling, though. If there was a significant success story to be spun from G+, they'd be spinning it furiously.
You're assuming that Google has a marketing team.
Now we can all switch to using Javascri... oh. Crap.
Carve the files onto titanium plates and store them in an underground bunker somewhere with little seismic activity.
Adobe's RTMFP has had this ability for years now, and they've since developed it further to include peer-to-peer rebroadcasting.
Except... it requires Flash, which is a dirty word around these parts.
Didn't know about ActivePython, thanks for the ref.
It really doesn't surprise me that Target may have that many bad links. First of all, it could very well be bad searches that are getting indexed. More likely though is that they recently changed their online catalog software to one that uses a different URL schema (Thus, you know, invalidating their entire catalog). While a simple set of rewrite rules would fix that, I can guarantee you that no-one wants to pay someone to go track down all the old marketing redirects and update them. Defaulting to a product search is much easier.
HTML5 is kindof awesome, but even the most awesome technology is limited by the number of people who can use it. Unless the W3C or Microsoft or Google or the Mozilla Foundation manage to convince the world to upgrade their browsers with the speed that Adobe can upgrade the install base of the Flash Player, HTML5 is always going to play second fiddle.
Now according to Adobe, Flash Player 10 is at 94% adoption in mature markets, and that's about... what, 10-12 months after release? The HTML 5 spec was formally named in January 2008, and the original started in 2004. Admittedly- corporate IT departments (the big evil) are as unlikely to upgrade the Flash Player as they are the browser, but if it takes that long for anything to make it into HTML, Adobe will have already had several upgrade cycles to react, improve, and move on.
Having said that: we can always return to the days of browser specific web sites, and that'd force people to upgrade: "This website is optimized for [Insert favorite browser here], please change your browser".
'We have to mount a vigorous campaign to change this policy.'
There's an App for that.
