  • Synchronicity is Dead
    Synchronicity encourages dependency
    Componentization tries to control the complexity of software system by divide-and-conquer.
  • Decomposition
    Decompose application into work loads (servers)
    Break up the work types that your application does so they can operate out of band over units of time. Synchronicity (scale out) is not by server. It is by virtual server image.
  • Where Data Center Power Goes
    Focussing on all pieces of the pie
     Microsoft’s Quincy data center uses 100 percent renewable hydropower.

  • Balance
    Balance between risk (enterprise needs) vs innovation (consumer needs)
    If you printed Twitter, you'd be able to fill 133,000 copies of the King James Bible—and if you laid those printed pages end-to-end, they'd could be wrapped around the world two and a half times. (Good, January 2010)

    Touch is so trendy and cold. It is “Cold” actually.
