The Actuator – February 12th

This week's Actuator comes to you from Austin, as I'm in town to host SolarWinds Lab live. We'll be talking about Database Performance Monitor (nee VividCortex). I hope you find time to watch and bring questions!

 

As always, here's a bunch of links I hope you find useful. Enjoy!

 

First clinical trial of gene editing to help target cancer

Being close to the biotech industry in and around Boston, I heard rumors of these treatments two years ago. I'm hopeful our doctors can get this done, and soon.

 

What Happened With DNC Tech

Twitter thread about the tech failure in Iowa last week.

 

Analysis of compensation, level, and experience details of 19K tech workers

Wonderful data analysis on salary information. Start at the bottom with the conclusions, then decide for yourself if you want to dive into the details above.

 

Things I Believe About Software Engineering

There's some deep thoughts in this brief post. Take time to reflect on them.

 

Smart Streetlights Are Experiencing Mission Creep

Nice reminder that surveillance is happening all around us, in ways you may never know.

 

11 Reasons Not to Become Famous (or “A Few Lessons Learned Since 2007”)

A bit long, but worth the time. I've never been a fan of Tim or his book, but this post struck a chord.

 

Berlin artist uses 99 phones to trick Google into traffic jam alert

Is it wrong that I want to try this now?

 

I think I understand why they never tell me anything around here...
