diigo Rufus: Create Bootable USB Drives the Easy Way
Monday 9th of June 2014
category: geeky
[comments]

"Rufus is an utility that helps format and create bootable USB flash drives, such as USB keys/pendrives, memory sticks, etc.

It can be especially useful for cases where:

you need to create USB installation media from bootable ISOs (Windows, Linux, UEFI, etc.)

you need to work on a system that doesn't have an OS installed

you need to flash a BIOS or other firmware from DOS

you want to run a low-level utility

Despite its small size, Rufus provides everything you need!"

diigo The Queen Shows Us Who Isn't Boss
Wednesday 4th of June 2014
category: interesting

As she processes through the Princes' Chamber in the House of Lords, there are two statues representing mercy and justice placed there on purpose to focus her mind as she prepares to deliver her speech. The route is dotted with pictures and statues of previous monarchs, as if Westminster were saying: "We have seen your like before."

And here is the really cheeky move: parliament forces Her Majesty to consider her own mortality as she gets dressed for the occasion. For in the Robing Room of the House of Lords, where the Queen puts on her robe and imperial state crown, the authorities have chosen to display a facsimile of the death warrant of her ancestor, Charles I.

category: interesting
[comments]

"The Data Analysis learning path provides a short but intensive introduction to the field of data analysis. The path is divided into three parts. In part 1, we learn general programming practices (software design, version control) and tools (python, sql, unix, and Git). In part 2, we learn R and focus more narrowly on data analysis, studying statistical techniques, machine learning, and presentation of findings. Part 3 includes a choice of elective topics: visualization, social network analysis, and big data (Hadoop and MapReduce). Choose from any or all of them to enrich your understanding and skills. "

"After a 5 year hiatus, acclaimed a16z investor and netscape founder Marc Andreessen returned to twitter (@pmarca) in '14 to give his point of view on the topics of entrepreneurship, investing, politics, and economics. Unfortunately spread over multiple tweets, known as tweetstorms, which are hard to follow using the default twitter timeline. Luckily recently Marc started to use the 'reply to' feature, which allows my algorithm to group the tweets together to improve readability."

diigo Mark Russinovich
Tuesday 27th of May 2014
category: geeky
[comments]

"Told by the six-foot, five-and-a-half-inch Russinovich in his wonderfully straightforward way, it?s a tale that lays bare the unapologetically ruthless attitude that pervaded Microsoft in the ?90s and on into the aughts, an attitude that brought it enormous success but also landed the company in hot water with regulators and ultimately hampered its ability to compete in the more open and collaborative world of the modern internet. But the postscript to the tale?where Jim Alchin, the head of Windows, tries to hire Russinovich?also shows that Microsoft is more complicated than you might expect, that the company is capable of change, however long that change might take."
