Enterprise APIs

If you haven’t heard, APIs are the new website! What? According to programmableweb, API traffic is exploding. For example, did you know that twitter receives 13 billion API calls per month, Salesforce receives 12 billion per month and eBay comes in at around 8 billion? These are some impressive numbers, and through they still pale in comparison to Google’s 88 billion per month search queries (in 2010), it’s somewhat surprising to see API traffic coming in at the same order of magnitude. We all know the popularity of some of these websites, so its no mystery that their API traffic is on the rise as APIs allow external developers to consume content and services from these service providers, but how does this trend affect the Enterprise? When an Enterprise opens up its internal systems to the outside world over REST or SOAP, it gains competitive advantage. Why? APIs cre... (more)

Michael Geist (@mgeist), a Canadian

Michael Geist (@mgeist), a Canadian hero, is giving at talk at Mesh. NOTE: Live-blogging. Getting things wrong. Missing points. Omitting key information. Introducing artificial choppiness. Over-emphasizing small matters. Paraphrasing badly. Not running a spellpchecker. Mangling other people’s ideas and words. You are warned, people. When SOPA was introduced, it seemed likely to pass. Bipartistan love fest. But then the Internet fought back, from the Free Bieber campaign to online petitions. The number one source of info about SOPA was not the NYT or the Washington Post but a TechDirt blog post. (As an aside, someone launched a take down notice of this blog post, so it didn’t even appear in he Google search engine for a month.) The Reddit community was very active. E.g., when GoDaddy was listed as a supporter of SOPA, Reddit started a campaign to transfer domains fr... (more)

Censoring Indian Communications

What would you do if the US Government shut down the entire text messaging system for all business users who wanted to send out more than five texts at one time? Think it would never happen? Well, not right now in the States, but for the past several weeks this is the case in India. The government feared that hate speech was being transmitted via SMS and also shut down several Twitter users and websites as well. When people complained, they changed the ban from five to 20 concurrent texts, but as far as I know, the ban is still in place. As I read these reports over the last week, I got chills running up my back. And India is supposedly the world’s largest democracy. With close to a billion cell phone users, it probably has more technology in one place than perhaps anywhere else. The stakes are high. In July, “some multimedia messages and websites contained video fo... (more)

What is the difference between cavitation and electrolysis?

The following paper was presented by France Helices’ president a while back. It discusses the difference between cavitation and electrolysis and the impact of both on propellers and propulsion. These two phenomena are often confused and it is important to learn to recognize the difference between them, so that the cause of problems can be determined and adequate fixes can be made. We have translated this version from the original French version. We hope you find it interesting. Introduction I have often had the opportunity to see during my career that there was some blurring in the judgment of some boating professionals, when it comes to establishing with certainty whether the damage caused to marine propellers originate from cavitation or electrolysis. I also often was shocked to hear the theories issued, shamelessly defying the laws of fluid mechanics and the ba... (more)

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
