DIY 19" rack mountable shallow DC output UPS built with refurbished 18650 cells DIY 19" rack mountable shallow DC output UPS built with refurbished 18650 cells

The UPS design is built using off-the-shelf or recycled components with a few custom made printed circuit boards.

Most notably, the UPS is designed to be enclosed using typical 19″ Ethernet switches.

Apart from a reusability solarpunk vibe Ethernet switch enclosures provide us with ready-made cutouts in their front panels.

This fact makes it easy to build a modular UPS device with standarised parts.

Even though any Ethernet 19″ rack switch enclosure can be used for this build, this particular UPS is going to be housed in an enclosure from a damaged Netgear GS748T switch.

Faced with community resistance to the building of new warehouses in the Inland Empire, Amazon has honed a strategy of cultivating local nonprofits and politicians, according to a leaked document.

HP also set in motion new subscriptions, and launched Smart Tank hardware filled with a pre-defined amount of ink/toner.

HP's moves are designed to up its bottom line in a world that's printing fewer pages.

HP's Printing division margin has risen from 14.8 percent in fiscal 2020 to 18.9 percent in fiscal 2023.

Why Is Jepsen Written in Clojure?
Why Is Jepsen Written in Clojure? Why Is Jepsen Written in Clojure?

People keep asking why Jepsen is written in Clojure, so I figure it’s worth having a referencable answer.

Almost every database has a JVM client, typically written in Java, and Clojure has decent Java interop.

Clojure’s data structures and standard library functions are possibly the best I’ve ever seen.

I also print a lot of structures to the console and files: Clojure’s data syntax (EDN) is fantastic for this.

;-)I prototyped Jepsen in a few different languages before settling on Clojure.

How do historical conditions influence our health?

The After the Plague project investigates these questions by exploring health in later medieval England.

It is centred on studying about 1000 medieval skeletons from the cemetery of the Hospital of St. John, Cambridge and from other medieval sites in Cambridge.

We investigate the short and long term biological and social consequences of this catastrophe on the medieval people of Cambridge.

Was the social impact and historical burden of chronic, less visible conditions such as tuberculosis actually greater than plague?

JSONB Has Landed in SQLite
JSONB Has Landed in SQLite

JSONB is a rewrite of the SQLite JSON functions that, depending on usage patterns, could be several times faster than the original JSON functions.

Functions that deal with text JSON use a three-step process:Parse the text JSON into an internal binary format that is more accessible to C-code.

Any JSON function that accepts JSON text as an input will now also accept JSONB binary content for that same parameter.

But there is now a corresponding " jsonb_ " function that returns JSONB rather than text JSON, thus omitting step 3 in the normal processing.

So to start using JSONB, you do not have to modify your database files to convert legacy text JSON into JSONB.

In “Exponential quantum speedup in simulating coupled classical oscillators”, published in Physical Review X (PRX) and presented at the Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science (FOCS 2023), we report on the discovery of a new quantum algorithm that offers an exponential advantage for simulating coupled classical harmonic oscillators.

Given certain constraints, this problem can be solved with a quantum computer exponentially faster than it can with a classical computer.

To show that our quantum algorithm achieves an exponential speedup over any possible classical algorithm, we provide two additional pieces of evidence.

Since we do have to review the integrity of our wiki backups, restoring the website might take a little while.

This week on we’re joined by Emil Sjölander from Figma — talking about bringing Dev Mode to Figma.

Dev Mode is their new workspace in Figma that’s designed to bring developers and design to the same tool.

The question they’re trying to answer is “How do you create a home for developers in a design tool?” We go way back to Emil’s startup that was acquired by Figma called Visly, how we iterated to here from 20 years ago (think PSD > HTML days), what they did to build Dev Mode, what they’re doing around codegen, the popularity of design systems, and what it takes to go from zero to Dev Mode.

Show HN: Solving NYT Connections with ChatGPT

Just for fun I decided to see if I could use chatGPT to solve NYT Connections word puzzles. It uses a pretty straightforward BFS search in which the LLM is first prompted to generate several possible groupings of four related words, and then a different prompt is used to evaluate the soundness of each of those groupings.This approach seems to be able to produce the correct solution somewhat less than half the time. Some observations:* For whatever reason, chatGPT-4 seems to be a bit worse than 3.5 at generating Connections groupings. I haven’t tested systematically so maybe this is just some small sample size bias. But at the very least it isn’t obviously better* It really struggles with th…

It’s a multiplayer browser game based off another popular board game that I used to play with groups of friends. We often found certain features lacking or wished to have things our way, and we were quite addicted to it. So I decided to build one myself. Sine it’s my first time launching something of my own, I went with some advice to release it as a closed beta with access codes, for a start. And I’m quite skeptical about this approach.

We’ve just seen the release of what’s become the most iconic end-of-year compilation: Spotify Wrapped.

And can support teams do the same to convey their true value within their companies – and, in particular, convince other teams of the value of AI-powered support tools?

The true genius (outdated Spotify reference I couldn’t resist) of Spotify Wrapped isn’t in the numbers, it’s in the way they’re packaged and presented.

Support teams looking to use their data to show their impact and grow appreciation for their work can take three major learnings from Spotify Wrapped.

Spotify Wrapped tells us about our own patterns and habits – and we’re enthralled every time.

In a word, language – the reason ChatGPT felt like such a remarkable leap forward was because of how it appeared fluent in natural language in a way no chatbot has ever been before.

This marks a remarkable new stage of “natural language processing” (NLP), the ability of computers to interpret natural language and output convincing responses.

With this development, language models were not limited to parsing short textual sequences.

Similarly, with the new attention mechanism, language models were able to parse more and varied types of textual training data.

Now we had the ability to train large language models which served as the foundation models for new natural language processing tasks.

If different generations clash in the workplace, it can jeopardize an organization’s success.

Think about how many people on your team are from a different generation.

Today’s industry goals have led us away from a cybernetic approach, she says, prioritising ‘marketable gadgets’ instead of a deeper understanding of the world we live in.

A cybernetic approach considers three things: people, technology, and the environment.

Embracing unanswered questions – the answer we first come to isn’t always the right one — it’s just the most obvious one.

Accommodating indirection – a cybernetic approach improves perspective; it looks for “other ways, and other vantage points”.

I was always a hardcore nerd, sitting alone in front of the computer and programming, focused only on pure technical skills, everything else was unimportant.

Most of my career I spent in small companies where I could just spend time writing code and I wasn’t bothered by anything else.

After giving my boss plenty of notice, I asked if I could use him as a reference and he said yes.

After several months working on migrating our users from a legacy system to our new system, our non-technical business analyst discovered our current system re-uses lots of code from the legacy system.

This quickly resulted in a group message from our manager to the BA, our senior engineer, me, and another developer.

They were afraid that having changes in one unified code base would break things for both groups of users.

To corroborate this, the company has not grown much in terms of users or revenue.

As even public or unicorn tech companies are often devalued by 50-75%, I think it is reasonable to say that my equity grant is worth a lot less and I’m being underpaid.

Transformation Fail
Transformation Fail Transformation Fail

Good products come from strong product teams, and strong product teams are made up of skilled people in these critical roles.

Without strong people on the product teams, the product operating model collapses.

At strong product companies, engineers play a critical role in identifying the best opportunities and the best solutions.

Yet in strong product companies, this is the primary responsibility of the product leaders.

As a very explicit example, you need to make sure the people teaching your product managers have actually done product management at a product operating model company.

Who Is Product Operating Model For?

When our industry refers to a “tech company,” this is not referring to what the company sells, it is referring to how the company believes they should power their business.

The product operating model is for companies that believe they should be powering their business with technology.

One very common manifestation of this confusion is the framing in so many legacy companies of “digital product” versus “non-digital product.”So many people think that – at most – the product model applies to their “digital products.” But the real power of the product model is when applied holistically to all products.

From Projects to ProductsTalking about product culture can sound very theoretical, but it impacts everyone every day.

Third, it’s all about delivering the features and projects that the stakeholders are asking for, rather than allowing our product team, especially the engineers, to look at what’s just now possible.

Finally, who takes responsibility for driving to the necessary outcome?

Any sense of ownership is usually dispersed among multiple stakeholders, and the most likely consequence is to blame the project team for doing such a poor job.

And in order to push decisions down to product teams, those product teams need to understand the strategic context, much of which comes from the executives.

We’ve found there are a set of techniques which can help encourage constructive and effective interactions between the executives, and the product leaders and product teams.

And executives depend on product leaders and product teams to share openly and honestly the data and reasoning used to make their decisions.

PRODUCT TEAMS AND TEAM TOPOLOGYThe products our company’s sell come from product teams.

Since most products have multiple product teams working on different areas, team topology refers to how we structure those product teams.

Fewer product teams, with smaller product team sizes, is a big win for companies.

PRODUCT MANAGERSFor this discussion it really is critical to distinguish between the product manager role on an empowered product team, versus a product manager role on a feature team, versus an Agile product owner role on a delivery team.

On the other hand, if you’re a product manager on an empowered product team, then your role is likely to become more critical rather than less.

But one of the most well-known, most common, and most frustrating has to do with the big management consultancies.

Suppose your local power utility company wanted to move from fossil fuel powered energy to renewable energy.

And because of course the fossil fuel company is smart enough to position themselves as in the “energy” business.

Rather, it’s the disconnect between the global communications network and any sort of negative externalities; the former just happened to come about at the same time the real world fell apart.

Sure, we can construct borders and private clubs, just as the Metaverse has private property, but interoperability and a shared economy are inescapable in the real world; physical constraints are community.

In another a GPT randomly selected five members of the audience to receive $500 in OpenAI API credits, only to then extend it to everyone.

It also speaks to how OpenAI is becoming more of a product company, with iterative enhancements of its core functionality.

Finally, standalone GPTs are a much better fit with the store model that OpenAI is trying to develop.

In fact, it’s possible that the entire plug-in/GPT approach ends up being a dead-end; towards the end of the keynote Ramon Huet, the head of developer experience at OpenAI, explicitly demonstrated ChatGPT programm…

A Cynical Read on AI AlarmLast week in a Stratechery Interview with Gregory Allen about the chip ban we discussed why Washington D.C. suddenly had so much urgency about AI.

Apple’s strategy was unclear, but it controlled the devices via which AI would be accessed, and had the potential to benefit even more if AI could be run locally.

China Chips and Moore’s Law
China Chips and Moore’s Law China Chips and Moore’s Law

– Jensen HuangOn Tuesday the Biden administration tightened export controls for advanced AI chips being sold to China; the primary target was Nvidia’s H800 and A800 chips, which were specifically designed to skirt controls put in place last year.

The reason why interconnect speed matters is tied up with Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang’s thesis that Moore’s Law is dead.

Moore’s Law, as originally stated in 1965, states that the number of transistors in an integrated circuit would double every year.

This distinction between Moore’s Law and Moore’s Precept is the key to understanding Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang’s repeated declarations that Moore’s Law is dead.

That human constraint, by extension, is perhaps why we don’t actually call media, communication, or software “virtual reality”, despite the defiance of reality I noted above.

Simply talking, though, removed that barrier: I quickly found myself having philosophical discussions including, for example, the nature of virtual reality.

Moreover, a virtual reality experience need not involve vision at all: talking with ChatGPT, for example, is an aural experience that feels more like virtual reality than the majority of experiences I’ve had in a headset.

True virtual reality shifts time like media, place like communications, and, crucially, does so with perfect availability and infinite capacity.

Go back to the issue of cable customer churn in response to ESPN’s lack of availability; here’s how it manifested in each phase:In Phase 1, a churned customer meant less leverage on expensive buildouts, and pressure from Wall Street.

The first thing I would say is, let’s just start with a single Scrum team.

A single Scrum team working on a product because Scrum is for product development, not so much for project management.

I would be asking a few questions, most importantly, how long does it take you to deliver a done increment?

Other considerations for how long your Sprint should beAlso, maybe how long does it take you to do customer user research, maybe UX, and so on?

So if we all have a four-week sprint, every team has a four-week sprint, or they have a three-week sprint or two-week sprint.
