Srinivas Kalidindi's insight:

Moore's Law and the Origin of Life

As life has evolved, its complexity has increased exponentially, just like Moore’s law. Now geneticists have extrapolated this trend backwards and found that by this measure, life is older than the Earth itself.

HTTP as Imagined versus HTTP as Found

HTTP as Imagined versus HTTP as Found | HungrynFoolish | Scoop.it

Srinivas Kalidindi's insight:
With any complex system there is always a conflict between intent and implementation, and with protocols there is a always a mismatch between specification and reality. If you make a specification too small, implementation specific behaviour creeps in, and if you make it too long, no-one has a chance of implementing it correctly. A good specification has to strike a balance between prescriptive to descriptive, explaining how things should work, but begrudgingly admitting how existing implementations behave. HTTP is no exception.

Peter Steiner's curator insight, April 10, 2013 10:57 AM

Agile methods take a different approach. People are organized into cross-functional teams and focused on a product… or a set of features… or a component… or a set of services… within the larger production ecosystem.
