Overview of weak, soft and Phantom References
Second, PhantomReferences avoid a fundamental problem with finalization: finalize() methods can "resurrect" objects by creating new strong references to them. So what, you say? Well, the problem is that an object which overrides finalize() must now be determined to be garbage in at least two separate garbage collection cycles in order to be collected. When the first cycle determines that it is garbage, it becomes eligible for finalization. Because of the (slim, but unfortunately real) possibility that the object was "resurrected" during finalization, the garbage collector has to run again before the object can actually be removed. And because finalization might not have happened in a timely fashion, an arbitrary number of garbage collection cycles might have happened while the object was waiting for finalization. This can mean serious delays in actually cleaning up garbage objects, and is why you can get OutOfMemoryErrors even when most of the heap is garbage.

With PhantomReference, this situation is impossible -- when a PhantomReference is enqueued, there is absolutely no way to get a pointer to the now-dead object (which is good, because it isn't in memory any longer). Because PhantomReference cannot be used to resurrect an object, the object can be instantly cleaned up during the first garbage collection cycle in which it is found to be phantomly reachable. You can then dispose whatever resources you need to at your convenience.

Arguably, the finalize() method should never have been provided in the first place. PhantomReferences are definitely safer and more efficient to use, and eliminating finalize() would have made parts of the VM considerably simpler. But, they're also more work to implement, so I confess to still using finalize() most of the time. The good news is that at least you have a choice.

專家回答:這不容易,但還是有可能的。人際關系專家兼咨詢專欄作家April Masini說:“家長既要讓孩子繼續保持這種精神氣,又讓他們知道自己行為的後果,要在兩者之間找好平衡點。”她稱,家長可以通過具體的事例,來給孩子講述,在什麼場合、用哪些方法來質疑老師和長輩是OK的,還要解釋這樣做的可能後果。你這樣教育的目的,是讓孩子知道,有時候規則可以打破,邊界可以移動,但行為卻是會帶來風險的。 http://cn.wsj.com/big5/20170222/LIF145613.asp?source=rss

dsl


A paper show the evolution of a DSL - http://www.mockobjects.com/files/evolving_an_edsl.ooplsa2006.pdf

A stock trading order example of DSL - http://debasishg.blogspot.com[..]05/designing-internal-dsls-in-scala.html

What is the difference between API / DSL if we don't write a parser for our language? From Martin Fowler's blog - http://martinfowler.com/bliki/DslReadings.html , it is mentioned:
Piers Cawley makes the point that a key characteristic of DSLs is their narrow focus on a domain.
I think this is a very good summary, usually if most of the APIs are getXXX() , setXXX(), loadXXX() , createXXX() ........ Then we mostly design APIs that expose low level detail to the API user to work on, which, is work but user probably work nicer if we can come up with language like API that allow users to do their work in more descriptive level.

I think if API design like that usually it will reduce the code duplication, what ever real duplication or conceptual duplication. It probably already apply "Tell, don't ask" style - http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?TellDontAsk

A discussion about applying "Tell, don't ask" which lead to message passing architecture - http://beautifulcode.oreillynet.com[..]07/10/do_messages_want_to_be_asynchr.php

他在公司的名言是「When you give, you get」。他在上海成立科研中心,大方讓上汽參與,他認為各懷鬼貽的氣氛不可能做出成績。合資公司理論上是獨立個體,合資公司員工應把合資公司利益放到最前,而不是自己原屬公司的利益,但很少人做得到。慢慢下來,上汽也逐漸對墨菲產生尊重。

在美國和上海工作過的GM員工,指上海GM的工作氣氛跟美國截然不同,甚至認為上海GM形成一套自己的文化,這套文化建基於信任。墨菲跟員工打成一片,工餘在家中安排活動,中美關係罕有地融洽。 http://www.thehousenews.com/finance/由傲慢製造的優秀企業/



10. 永遠記得,做出決定前要先綜觀全局。

9. 否定別人跟切換開關一樣容易。但你最好拼死抵抗這種衝動,因為你也曾經做過蠢事。你做過爛決定,然後學習、成長,別人也一樣。

8. 掃地、擦桌、關燈。哪裡有漏洞要補就去補——即便那很瑣碎、沒人會注意。你必須做這些事去造福你的產品、你的公司,以及所有你們團隊共同打造的,令眾人驚艷、神奇的事物。

7. 你無法做所有的事。閉上眼睛,向後仰倒,學會信任。

6. 顯然有某種更為有效的方法能處理你正在做的事。是什麼呢?在每天回家的路上反覆思考吧。

5. 找出總是在依賴你的人,想想要怎麼做才能協助他們,讓他們自力更生。或許你覺得當個壟斷市場的鮭魚供應商很重要,但如果小鎮的所有人都學會捕魚,便能將你解放出來去做別的事。像是學習種小麥,或是如何馴服那些可愛的小狼。

4. 別說任何對當下討論沒有貢獻的話。你的聲音並非悠揚到絕對必須被聽見。

3. 做得出最好的決定比不上處在得以確保做出更多最佳決定的流程。

2. 就像你經常發表意見那樣,多說感謝和鼓勵的話語。

1. 最重要的是:永遠要掃除障礙物。那怕只是玩玩手指、看看窗外的雲,也別讓你那愚蠢、幼稚的自我阻礙團隊前進的腳步。

What management should be - http://www.jrothman.com[..]-people-can-you-manage-as-a-manager.html

1. 清楚意識到您的創新意圖
2. 為彈性的工作時間設計一個架構
3、涉入,然後再把手收回去
4. 測量什麼是有意義的
5. 給予「無實質價值」的報酬
6. 象徵化
7. 不是標準化地複製他人的創新行為

http://www.inside.com.tw/2014/01/15/6-way-innovation-culture http://www.fastcodesign.com[..]6-ways-to-create-a-culture-of-innovation


1. 在公司裡跟別人吐露的心事越少,對你越好。你以為是無傷大雅的閑聊,其實有可能會造成嚴重傷害。把你的猜測和擔憂都埋在心裡吧。

2. 務必管理好和下屬的關系。花時間和公司裡的較低層員工在一起,盡量對他們友好。對電梯操作員禮貌問候,對郵遞員表示感謝,對助理說句友善的話,這些都會得到讚賞。打造名譽要從基層做起。同樣的,碰到不爽的事情,要自己消化情緒,不要在別人面前發泄。

3. 做領導是一份全職工作,職責的時鐘永不停止。每個微小的跡象都會被解讀,你的不耐煩、失望或不安全感都會被那些解讀你的人放大。不應做出隨意、毫無準備的坦白,信息必須經過深思熟慮才能發出。要特別小心書面的東西,尤其是電子郵件──它們永遠都不會消失。

4. 保持聆聽並索取建議。每周至少在公司餐廳吃一次午飯,或者時不時在咖啡機旁逗留,聽聽其他人都在聊些什麼。如果有人想跟你說話,那就沒有理由不聽。如果有人批評,即使你不讚同也要花時間仔細回應。

5. 你覺得很風趣的俏皮話通常並不風趣。你的幽默感很容易被解讀為自傲和笨拙。如果你仍然以為講笑話或引用某個幽默故事對陳述觀點很重要,那麼請先跟你的配偶或信任的朋友演練一遍。幽默是有風險的。千萬不要拿嚴肅的事情開玩笑。

6. 很重要的一點是,保証重要事務的重要性。應該經常解釋你的戰略,可以換個措辭,但要反復強調。

7. 絕不要抱怨和解釋,沒有人會聽。出了差錯就承擔責任。不要把錯誤怪到前幾屆管理層、天氣、運氣不好或競爭對手身上。但也不要露出防御姿態。向前看──除非上級要求你辭職。

8. 信任你的專業顧問,接受他們的專業意見。不要對市場做過多猜測。沒有所謂的完美數據。做出決策,往前走。

9. 謹慎使用“平均”這個詞──平均深度為6英寸河也可能淹死人。欣然接受“平均”,只會獲得虛假的安全感。假設最糟糕的情況會發生,因為通常就是如此。

10. 最後這條是陳詞濫調,但卻是至理真言:絕不要做或說你不希望在報紙頭條看到的事情。和媒體打交道時,不要回答假設性的問題,謹記麥克風永遠不會真正關閉,絕不要同意“私下”談。對一場危機唯一值得做的公開回應是誠實。

这里有一个原则同学们要记住:不重要的学术作品大可不读,但重要的要反复重读,读多遍。不要相信重要作品的简化阐释,因为作者究竟怎样想我们不可能从简化的阐释中学到。 - http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_47841af70102ux5w.html

Rarely will I get through every section of every book.  The idea is to create a kind of dialogue among the authors, identifying points of overlap and difference.  Very often, the ideas from one book will trigger ideas that have you scouring the other books for elaboration.  The mixture of ideas from several books will lead to a thought that is not contained in any of the books.  When you read in parallel, it's like being in the room while the authors are conversing.  The intersecting of ideas almost always stimulates fresh ways of thinking about (and applying) the topic at hand. - http://traderfeed.blogspot.hk[..]ding-in-parallel-becoming-better-at.html
