Slack Visualization, Malware Spidering, Dataflow as Database, and History of Cartography
- TeamChatViz — open source visualisations for your Slacks.
- malspider — a spidering framework to detect the signs of a compromised website.
- Dataflow as Database (Frank McSherry) — This post is going to try out the idea that we might design a database as a functional data-parallel computation mapped over an input sequence of transactions. Which probably has lots of issues, but thinking them out is going to be good for your brain.
- History of Cartography — On this site the University of Chicago Press is pleased to present the first three volumes of the History of Cartography in PDF format.
