NodeJS-News.com's curator insight, December 19, 2012 9:19 AM

You probably don't know JavaScript. Like really know javascript.

Javascript is a real programming language: functions, lambdas, closures, objects, inheritance, passing by reference, etc.

Somewhere long, long ago, an arbitrary decision was made that we would "program" a web browser with Javascript. Javascript is good at this (we'll soon learn why), but there are experimental browsers that use Python (and other languages) to manipulate a web browser window too. There is no inherent reason that Javascript has to be tied to the web browser (or web browsers have to be tied to Javascript).

Unfortunately because the primary context we experience Javascript is in the web browser, we more strongly associate JavaScript with its browser-specific functions/extensions (for manipulating the DOM and listening for UI clicks) than its core language which can exist completely separately from the web browser. Just like we can use Ruby for general purpose programming without using Rails.

What happens when social media is read by robots - and not curated by humans

What happens when social media is read by robots - and not curated by humans | Code | Scoop.it
Here in the US, the Dow recently tumbled almost 150 points in a “flash crash” caused by widespread digital panic. What was the cause of this panic? Twitter.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, April 25, 2013 8:11 PM

As Clair tweeted "a single twitter handle (AP's) is hacked and the Dow tumbles 150 points."


Why? As she explains through a combination of automated trading and lack of social media usage by the traders.


Technology is great. But I'm a firm believer that the best way to leverage it is not to let it go on auto-pilot but rather have its output curated by humans - a concept we like to call Humanrithm which we apply at Scoop.it, for instance when our discovery algorithm only makes content suggestions but lets users decide what gets published and what is not.


Did we get lucky this time? Some people probably weren't and lost something in that story. But if we don't want SF movies to become real one day, we have to start educating and empowering everyone to curate social media.

A very interesting scoop and comment.
Pierre Scampini's curator insight, April 26, 2013 6:20 AM

Tous les outils quels qu'ils soient doivent être créés pour servir l'humain et non s'auto-gérer au-delà du raisonnable. Gardons cette éthique y compris dans les sytèmes de l'information et leurs processus.

Quelques questions universelles peuvent nous aider à en faire le diagnostique et s'aplliquent à tous les systèmes ou projets:

 

1- Est ce que cela tiens la mer ? Est ce relié au monde des vivants ? (Approche)

 

2- Est ce bien fait ? ( Déploiement)

 

3- la boucle PDCA est elle bouclée et enrichie ? (Evaluation)

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All our tools should be created to serve humans and not to serve themselves. We must keep this ethical idea in mind for IT systems too.

Universal questions should help us. They could be used to make the diagnostic of any system or project:

 

1- Does it stay afloat ? Is it linked with living world and specially human world ? (Approach)

 

2- Is it well done ? ( Deployment)

 

3- PDCA (Prepare, Start, Control, Secure)  is complete ? (Assesment)

Why I think node.js is the future for us but not the present

At funciton we are not married to a technology or language. We believe that every need has a very unique and special way to be solved. While we do a lot of python development (python is awesome!) we always struggle to find enough python developers.
