- John Resig – Deep Tracing of Internet Explorer
dynaTrace Ajax works by sticking low-level instrumentation into Internet Explorer when it launches, capturing any activity that occurs – and I mean virtually any activity that you can imagine. I noticed very little slow down when running the browser in tracing mode (although it’s sometimes hard to tell, considering the browser). However all of the tracing is recorded and saved for later, making it easy to record sessions for later analysis.
- Unifying the Conversations (Salmon Protocol)
As updates and content flow in real time around the Web, conversations around the content are becoming increasingly fragmented into individual silos. Salmon aims to define a standard protocol for comments and annotations to swim upstream to original update sources — and spawn more commentary in a virtuous cycle. It’s open, decentralized, abuse resistant, and user centric.

- Turning Predictions into Opportunities – O’Reilly Radar
Big data is being democratised, but there’s a lot of unmet need in businesses around data warehousing. The typical solution is to build a data warehouse team around a product like Oracle, but I’ve heard plenty of business people grizzling about the result. They want answers, they don’t want the headaches and lag that a data warehouse involve. Big Data (or Cloud Analytics or whatever) may be the opportunity to figure out a new minimum viable product for these folks, and offer it without the "data warehouse" baggage. This might be back end, might be UIs, might be visualisation, but all of these have a lot of room for improvement.
