Usually, I’m not one for long-winded explanations, but this topic is so exciting that I just have to share my thoughts on why the OpenAI ChatGPT plugins might just be the next big thing.

OpenAI’s ChatGPT is finally giving Google a run for its money by disrupting the traditional customer journey.

However, until two days ago, ChatGPT was still “limited” because it didn’t have access to the latest information and the “internet”.

The introduction of the ChatGPT plugins has revolutionized the game yet again - ChatGPT now has plugs into the “internet” and can be fed with all the websites out there.

An EEVDF CPU scheduler for LinuxThis article brought to you by LWN subscribers Subscribers to LWN.net made this article — and everything that surrounds it — possible.

The kernel's completely fair scheduler (CFS) has the job of managing the allocation of CPU time for most of the processes running on most Linux systems.

The EEVDF scheduler , posted by Peter Zijlstra, offers the possibility of improving on CFS while reducing its dependence on often-fragile heuristics.

Its name suggests something similar to the Earliest Deadline First algorithm used by the kernel's deadline scheduler but, unlike that scheduler, EEVDF is not a realtime scheduler, so it works in different ways.

ChatGPT will revolutionize the economy. We need to decide what that looks like ChatGPT will revolutionize the economy. We need to decide what that looks like

According to their narrative, the end goal is artificial general intelligence, which, if all goes well, will lead to great economic wealth and abundances.

Companies can decide to use ChatGPT to give workers more abilities—or to simply cut jobs and trim costs.

Another positive development: there is at least some momentum behind open-source projects in generative AI, which could break Big Tech’s grip on the models.

And if Coyle and others are right, increased public funding for AI research could help change the course of future breakthroughs.

“We can have one of the best decades ever if we use the technology in the right direction,” he says.

Any type of hormonal contraceptive may increase risk of breast cancer Any type of hormonal contraceptive may increase risk of breast cancer

Use of progestogen-only contraceptives has increased substantially in recent years, but information on their association with breast cancer risk was limited.

In 2020, there were almost as many prescriptions issued in England for progestogen-only oral contraceptives as there were for combined oral contraceptives.

The researchers analysed data from 9,498 women who developed invasive breast cancer between ages 20 to 49 and 18,171 closely-matched women without breast cancer who acted as controls.

The data were used to calculate the strength of the association between use of each type of hormonal contraceptive and breast cancer risk.

"No one should be subjected to unnecessary and nonconsensual drug tests," says ACLU of New Jersey staff attorney Molly Linhorst.

The specific problem of pregnant women falsely identified as illegal drug users by hospital urine tests likewise has been widely recognized for years.

It notes that "a positive drug test result is not in itself diagnostic of opioid use disorder or its severity."

They nevertheless conducted drug tests surreptitiously with no medical basis and used recklessly low cutoffs.

It included a "Certified Alcohol and Drug Counseling evaluation" and yet another urine test, which was "negative for all substances."

From above, he saw a wolf pack capture and kill a moose.

In 1970, Mech published “The Wolf: The Ecology and Behavior of an Endangered Species.” The book assembled an enormous amount of research on wolves, covering aspects including wolf habits, wolf society, and the relations of the wolf to prey, to non-prey, to disease, and, of course, to humans.

Where conditions are harsh, a wolf pack might number four—two parents, two pups—because so few pups survive.

At six years old, a Yellowstone wolf is considered an elder—only about one in five lives to that age.

European wolf myths often have this quality, of the wolf and the human as being in some ways the same.

The federal official who wrote the joke memo, Thomas Hibino, worked at the Boston location of the Office for Civil Rights, eventually serving as the regional director; he retired in 2014.

The SEC notified Coinbase that it plans to sue the firm for allegedly violating a range of investor-protection laws, the firm said this week.

Laying the foundationCreating a concrete model entails first defining concrete resources in a bottom-up approach.

Unlike concrete resources, abstract resources do not convey information per-se.

Ask HN: Is Google Slowly Dying? Ask HN: Is Google Slowly Dying?

I feel like Google’s search result quality has been steadily declining since at least five years, and from what I’m reading both on HN and on other platforms, people feel the same.

Add to that Alphabet’s notorious love for constantly killing products, and I’m wondering how long they will be able to keep this going?

With ChatGPT and other AI tools being introduced, will the need and reliance on classic search engines drop quickly or will it take years?

Where do you see this going?

The Neural Engine — what do we know about it?

The Apple Neural Engine (or ANE) is a type of NPU, which stands for Neural Processing Unit.

The ANE isn't the only NPU out there — many companies besides Apple are developing their own AI accelerator chips.

Besides the Neural Engine, the most famous NPU is Google's TPU (or Tensor Processing Unit).

Unfortunately Apple isn't giving third-party developers any guidance on how to optimize their models to take advantage of the ANE.

Here is everything you need to know about the history of LLMs, for our purposes today:The Google Brain team published a paper in 2017 called Attention is All You Need.

Cheating is All You NeedThere are, by my last count, approximately 13 hillion frillion jillion LLM-backed coding assistants out there, as of mid-March.

These qualities work quite nicely with the Senior and Staff roles, where the impact I'm having is outside of just the team I'm in.

However, one thing that stuck with me is that Staff Engineers, at least at Deliveroo, are expected to be a domain expert.

However, thinking long-term, I'm not sure if Care is the domain that I want to specialise in.

I think that moving into something more Developer Tools focussed is for me, rather than a more product-aligned part of the business.

I think I'm going to be focussing on strengthening my skills as a Senior while I find the right domain to specialise into, then I'll start looking at progression again.

I don't think web developer jobs are going anywhere.

And, in a way, web developers have been made obsolete!

There is an enormous difference between this HTML document and the sorts of code front-end developers write today.

Front-end vs. other engineering disciplines Some folks online have been suggesting that front-end development is particularly susceptible to AI replacement, and suggesting that developers move up the stack, to focus on back-end or data engineering.

A depressingly-large number of folks in our industry feel like back-end development is harder or more complex than front-end development, that the “real” engineering happens on the server.

The topic: awesome things you should know about that have absolutely zero to do with AIMichal Warda wrote about self-hosting in 2023.

Martin Heinz says he will never use Alpine Linux in his containers again.

Martin’s conclusion: “By using Alpine, you’re getting “free” chaos engineering for you cluster.” OuchOliver Rice at Supabase details how you can create type constraints in Postgres with just 65 lines of SQL.

To illustrate this, he walks you through creating a semver data type to represent Semantic Versioning values.

If that data type could force developers to use SemVer consistently… that’d be something.

Why I will never use Apline Linux ever again

Nowadays, Alpine Linux is one of the most popular options for container base images.

By using Alpine, you're getting "free" chaos engineering for you cluster.

Also, Kubernetes docs claim that DNS issues are relevant only for "Alpine version 3.3 or earlier", but I encountered the above issue on Alpine 3.16, so go figure.

The biggest appeal of Alpine is its small size, so if you really care about that, then Wolfi (e.g.

This also relates to its small size, because the small size generally means fewer packages and therefore also fewer vulnerabilities.

Code completion engines that use LLMs deploy complex heuristics to determine which code snippets are included in the context.

The completion engine will often collect snippets from recently visited files or relevant classes to provide the language model with relevant information.

They could also introduce more subtle changes to documentation which then biases the code completion engine to introduce subtle vulnerabilities.

ConclusionsEquipping LLMs with retrieval capabilities might allow adversaries to manipulate remote Application-Integrated LLMs via Indirect Prompt Injection.

Adaptive leadership: a framework for the future
Adaptive leadership: a framework for the future Adaptive leadership: a framework for the future

Enter adaptive leadership – a collaborative, responsive way to lead that feels right for our modern age.

But because our working lives are getting more complex, adaptive leadership feels more relevant than ever.

Principles of adaptive leadershipThe adaptive leadership framework dictates we need to adapt to grow, both as individuals and as organizations; the adaptive leader’s role is to facilitate that collective process, not make authoritative decisions on how it should play out.

That kind of process is never comfortable, and that’s why adaptive leadership can be quite risky, in a sense.

Falling back on those adaptive leadership principles – emotional intelligence, organizational justice, d…

The needs of the customer take a back seat to internal “emergencies” and horse-trading across teams as everyone hustles to meet increasingly ambitious business goals.

Product Managers are ultimately responsible for figuring out what to build and ensuring it is impactful.

For decades, the Product Requirement Doc (PRD) has been the instrument of the trade, the single source of truth for what to build and why.

With the evolution of agile development and the acceleration of software-centric businesses, product teams realized that static documents aren’t the best tool to represent dynamic creative work.

The PRD becomes a process tool to solve a people problem.

Start your ROI calculation by determining how important your project is, and what the value of the outcome would be for the business.

Reframe the suggested experiment as a way to increase your confidence in the decision, not a guarantee of absolute certainty.

The way to estimate the impact of big, scary experiments is to break the calculations down into smaller manageable variables.

Bigger bets are more accessible than you realize, once you model the best and worst case scenarios.

By getting into the habit of calculating the expected return from each experiment, you’ll naturally start gravitating away from sweating the small stuff, and make bigger bets you need to kickstart growth.

I still remember reading Eric Ries’ blog post that first coined the term “Lean Startup” in September 2008.

While we were working on Anywhere.FM, we came across another small music startup founded by Daniel Ek in Sweden.

While experienced entrepreneurs have largely moved beyond the Lean Startup methodology, first-time founders still use it as their primary playbook.

That’s why I think it's important to bring greater awareness to the many limitations of the Lean Startup.

Over the last two decades, growth marketing has continued to grow in popularity even though most executives and many marketers continue to maintain a fuzzy — at best — grasp of the concept.

The vagueness of this domain has turned it into an overused buzzword.

Should I raise my concerns with management or give it more time to shake out?

Episode 338: I am the golden handcuffs and Staying in management Episode 338: I am the golden handcuffs and Staying in management

‌I started my journey as an engineering manager at a startup.

Overall I received good feedback from the engineers but the founders didn’t recognize the value of this role and I felt that I wasn’t getting the required mentorship there to grow further.

It’s been challenging to find another manager role.

I get good feedback from the interviews but haven’t received an offer yet.

I still am a good backend engineer but that is not what I want to keep pursuing.

My team has recently hired a new principal engineer, and I’m wondering how I can help the principal engineer.

There is, as always, some organization-specific context that I am familiar with, and the principal engineer is not.

Are there general tips on how to provide help for someone who has much more experience than I do?

His manager J used to be my manager.

Do I go to my manager with ways that I would prefer our 1x1s go and how I personally like to get feedback?

I am a junior software developer who has been working at a startup 9 months ago.

This made sense at the time because I would not have to worry about commuting to the office.

3 months ago my manager suggested that I come to the office more often as this would benefit my development and give a me a chance to socialise with my co-workers.

Now the past few weeks there has been pressure to start coming to the office full time.

While I feel like I’ve absorbed some good experience from each company I’ve been at, I also feel like my training is not yet complete.

At my last company, I hit my ceiling as a dev but I also felt the bar was really low.

I had to do a lot of hand holding and fielded a lot of engineer questions that could have easily been Googled and it was really frustrating.

What are some tips you have to navigate the murky waters of being a mid-level dev wanting to learn as much as possible to become a seasoned dev without giving off an “intern smell”?

Why Applying Machine Learning to Biology is Hard – But Worth It Why Applying Machine Learning to Biology is Hard – But Worth It

Lin talked to Future about the challenges of executing on a company mission to marry machine learning approaches and biological data.

JIMMY LIN: Traditional machine learning data are very broad and shallow.

The type of problems machine learning is often solving are what humans can solve in a nanosecond, such as image recognition.

From the very beginning, Freenome has taken into consideration how to generate the best data suited for machine learning.

Is there one take-home lesson that you have learned in this whole process of marrying biology and machine learning?

User research is the unsung hero of determining a product’s viability and the secret ingredient to its success.

User research is the process of studying users’ needs, customer journeys, pain points, and processes through questions, surveys, observation, and other methods.

Good user research goes beyond simple feedback, adding structure and process to gathering insights from the right users.

Moderated vs. unmoderatedModerated research requires time and energy to supervise the user, while unmoderated research allows users to provide feedback on their own.

By acquiring Anchor, Spotify was placing a simultaneous, yet complimentary bet that podcasting would be more like YouTube… but for audio.

While each acquisition took a different approach to podcasts, Spotify had to find a way to measure all podcasts (and thus each acquisition) equally.

Instead, we needed a goal that pushed us to provide real value to creators – value that kept them coming back – not just enabled them to record one episode and quit.

SuperGoal 3: Prove Spotify LTV and the value of millions of podcasts by reaching X MAC by Y date.

In that period, we proved that millions of creators making podcasts on Anchor did drive LTV in a big way.

People who are here really, really want to be here.

Especially when they’re remote, it’s a lot easier [for companies] to ask people to work longer, work harder, and work on the weekends, because work and life are kind of the same thing.

A lot of companies are pulling people back to the office, because their experience with remote work was not particularly good.

But that’s because they thought remote work was just the same kind of work from far away.

Good remote work is a totally, entirely different way to work.

Remote Startups Will Win the War for Top Talent

I believe the same thing is happening with remote companies — call them e-companies — when stacked against in-person, physically headquartered businesses today.

Between 2008 and 2018, remote work exploded 400 percent, resulting in almost 4 million remote workers in the US.

A remote work dilemma is emerging.

In fact, a Gartner survey of 5,000 workers found that remote and hybrid employees reported higher culture satisfaction than on-site employees.

In the face of this, companies that don’t adapt will bleed talent to their competition, and companies that embrace remote work will replace companies that don’t.

Once we remove the barriers, we will be able to use science to feed data-hungry generative AI models.

Aside from the number of health benefits associated with eating mushrooms, they’re arguably one of the most delicious foods when prepared properly. Their cellular structure and fibers resemble those of meat fibers, containing many of the same glutamates and flavor compounds as meat. This is why according to Fox and Fuller, everyone should cut out meat and consider eating mushrooms instead.

Disruptive Technologies
Disruptive Technologies Disruptive Technologies

I consider myself incredibly lucky to have experienced several disruptive technologies over my career.

It just depends on how granular we want to define disruptive technology.

In strong product companies, we live for these disruptive technologies.

But now I’ve learned that it’s really not possible to truly predict the impact of disruptive technologies.

Remember that product managers are responsible for the value and viability of what we build, and those risks are right at the center of this new wave of disruptive technologies.

Product Managers, Product Designers and Product EngineersA typical cross-functional product team requires three specific and very distinct skill sets.

A small Product Operations competency (referred to as “product ops”), staffed with data analysts and user researchers, can accelerate the work of your product teams.

Product LeadersThe product leaders are the managers of product management, product design, and product engineering.

In addition to building and coaching the product teams, these product leaders have critical responsibilities related to creating a compelling and inspiring product vision, an insight-driven product strategy, and a carefully crafted team topology.

The Product Model
The Product Model The Product Model

Some companies refer to this way of working as the “product operating model” and some refer to it as a “product-led company”.

I have no real issue with “product operating model” although it’s a bit cumbersome in writing, and it kind of begs the question of what an operating model really is?

A close cousin of the IT model is “the project model,” where the CFO plays an outsized role because funding and staffing is typically project-based.

If it’s general stakeholders, then it may be “the feature-team model” (because each stakeholder drives their roadmap of features).

Does the term “product model” resonate with you as a good term for the destination and result of your transformation efforts?

We wrote INSPIRED in order to share the best practices and techniques used by the best product teams.

The premise for this book was published a few months ago as a series of articles where we define what we mean by truly transforming to the product model.

We all know they had a big advantage growing up in the product model.

This book is about helping companies that do not currently follow the product model to develop new muscles.

We’ll also be profiling a number of product coaches, so that companies trying to transform can get a better sense of what to look for in a product coach.

The Alternative To Agile Coaches
The Alternative To Agile Coaches The Alternative To Agile Coaches

A couple of months before this announcement, I gave a talk to Agile coaches at the request of Crisp.

In that talk, I discussed two different product team archetypes, team red and team blue.

Team Red has a certified Agile Coach, Scrum Master, and Product Owner, and they diligently follow all Agile ceremonies.

There are no Agile coaches, no Scrum Masters, and their product managers scoff at the idea of a Product Owner.

So if Team Blue is actually Agile, yet they don’t have any Agile coaches and never have, how did they become this way?

Becoming a Product Coach
Becoming a Product Coach Becoming a Product Coach

To be absolutely clear: I do not see how a person can be an effective product coach without actual, relevant product experience.

TYPES OF PRODUCT COACHING BUSINESSESThere are of course many different ways to structure your product coaching business.

Coaching PartnershipMany independent product coaches decide for various reasons to partner up with one or more other independent product coaches.

A profile for a product leader or a product manager should be very different from a profile of a product coach.

EXAMPLE PRODUCT COACHING SERVICESThere are of course a very broad range of specific product coaching services that are provided by hundreds of different product coaches.

Product vs. Policy
Product vs. Policy Product vs. Policy

Product vs. PolicyMost people today know that when we refer to “product,” we mean that in a very holistic sense.

Now, to be very clear, I view policy as an integral aspect of product, so I’m not trying to contrast product and policy.

Rather, I want to call out and highlight the key role that policy plays in our products.

One of the challenges of policy is that it’s usually necessary at the product organization level, as the product team level is usually too granular.

But hopefully more product leaders will learn the lessons from the many visible policy failures out there, and take the policy topic as seriously as necessary.

So in this article, I’d like to focus on this more fundamental topic, which gets to the very nature of product, and the foundation of what it means to be a strong product team.

The product manager must establish relationships with these people, where the product manager has put in real time and effort to learn the concerns and needs of the various stakeholders, and the stakeholder genuinely believes that the product manager understands the relevant constraints, and will ensure they are considered and addressed in any proposed solution.

And for anything in that gray area where the product manager isn’t sure if something is viable or not, the product manager will discuss with the stakeholder …

Product Sense Demystified
Product Sense Demystified Product Sense Demystified

As in, some people have a strong sense of smell, and others have strong product sense.

If you’re a product manager, this is often one of the most meaningful differences between an entry level product manager, and the more senior levels (e.g.

senior product manager, group product manager, principal product manager).

This happens when the person doesn’t realize the true source of product sense, and instead they think they have some sort of mental gift, but this is just arrogance, not product sense.

Product sense can definitely accelerate product discovery, but it’s more like having a compass as you navigate the product risks.

In fact, in a strong product company, a compelling and inspiring product vision is our single best tool for inspiring our product teams.

INSIGHT-DRIVEN PRODUCT STRATEGYWhile the product vision describes the future, the product strategy is how we identify the most important problems to solve now.

This type of insight-driven product strategy usually requires developing new muscles for the company, but the reward for strong product strategy is to get the most out of your technology investment.

In the feature team model, the feature on the roadmap is designed by the designer on the feature team, and then built by the engineers on the feature team.

This is why in the feature team model you can’t hold the feature team accountable to business results.

SOLVING PROBLEMS FOR OUR CUSTOMERS AND OUR BUSINESSLet’s contrast this with an empowered product team.

In this case, rather than providing the product team with a roadmap of features and projects to build, the product team is instead given a set of problems to solve and desired outcomes to achieve.

Instead, the product team has a full battery of tools and techniques in order to quickly test out ideas and approaches.

Still, when a test version went live on July 15, 2004 — the same day as Netflix’s quarterly earnings call — Netflix’s stock suffered its first Blockbuster-inspired plunge.

Three months later Netflix cut prices and referred to Amazon’s assumed imminent entry to the space; Netflix’s stock slid again.

“The prize is huge, the stakes high, and we intend to win.”Blockbuster responded by pricing Blockbuster Online 50 cents cheaper, accelerating Netflix’s stock slide.

New subscriber additions barely kept up with cancellations, leaving Blockbuster Online treading water after a few weeks.

I’m not sure there is any company of Netflix’s size that has ever been so frequently doubted and written off.

The trouble is that the organization didn’t really have these capabilities, Steve Jobs did, and that didn’t permeate throughout the organization.

It isn’t just Satya who embodies this agile leadership style, people like Richard Branson do too.

Professionals who are highly specialized but do not have interpersonal skills are at risk of being replaced by artificial intelligence.

This means that customer support professionals who do not have interpersonal skills can be replaced by chatbots and virtual assistants.

These chatbots and virtual assistants can provide customer support efficiently and consistently, without needing interpersonal skills.
