pause


http://traderfeed.blogspot.hk/2017/01/the-power-of-pause.html

When faced with a long creative problem, it is best to impose brief breaks on yourself. Brief mental breaks will actually help you stay focused on your task and improve your idea generation approach. A structured downtime can help you do your best work. - https://journal.thriveglobal.com[..]restore-high-level-thinking-d3c12707095f

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。

performance


http://highscalability.com[..]6/big-list-of-20-common-bottlenecks.html

Nothing specific, mostly code clean up, refactoring and simplification, the performance boost was a surprise. <- This is a good one - http://bad-concurrency.blogspot.com.au[..]12/07/disruptor-v3-faster-hopefully.html

Is there anything we can do about this when designing algorithms and data-structures? Yes there is a lot we can do. If we perform chunks of work on data that is co-located, and we stride around memory in a predictable fashion, then our algorithms can be many times faster. For example rather than using bucket and chain hash tables, like in the JDK, we can employ hash tables using open-addressing with linear-probing. Rather than using linked-lists or trees with single items in each node, we can store an array of many items in each node. - http://mechanical-sympathy.blogspot.com.au[..]emory-access-patterns-are-important.html

Skip lists are used instead of b-trees because b-trees don’t scale. - http://highscalability.com[..]ast-mvcc-inmem-lockfree-codegen-and.html

Difference ways to stop a thread - http://www.ddj.com[..]ept_url=/hpc-high-performance-computing/

Interesting, I am not sure if I agree, but chrome ( which use fork ) are really cool in performance:
There’s another problem with Unix programming in Ruby that I’ll just touch on briefly: Java people and Windows people. They’re going to tell you that fork(2) is bad because they don’t have it on their platform, or it sucks on their platform, or whatever, but it’s cool, you know, because they have native threads, and threads are like, way better anyways.

Fuck that.

Don’t ever let anyone tell you that fork(2) is bad. Thirty years from now, there will still be a fork(2) and a pipe(2) and a exec(2) and smart people will still be using them to solve hard problems reliably and predictably, just like they were thirty years ago.

MRI Ruby people need to accept, like Python (you have seen multiprocessing, yes?), that Unix processes are one of two techniques for achieving reliable concurrency and parallelism in server applications. Threads are out. You can use processes, or async/events, or both processes and async/events, but definitely not threads. Threads are out.

Best number of threads:
N = number of CPUs
U = target CPU utilization (0 <= U <= 1)
