"3D" Parallax View with Google Camera

DEPTHY the Lens Blur viewer:
"Make a photo using Lens Blur mode and load it using the button below.
Photos are processed on your device - no uploading!
It works on your Android device too!"

Google Camera - Android Apps on Google Play
The app saves images data in such way to preserve more (or multiple) info,
a the viewer then can simulate 3D=like view by slight movements.

Moj svet - S vremena na vreme
Svako vreme ostaje
  u sećanju vršnjaka svojih
kao vreme ludosti
  strahova i radosti
al' ono što mu daje sjaj
  to je neko drugo vreme

Neprohodnim stazama
   išlo se u novo sutra
u ono magično
   što nikad nije konačno
u nama tinja isti žar
   i ista pesma je u nama

Moj svet
   čaroban i lep
sigurnost mi daje
   ka novom me vodi
moj svet
   čaroban i lep
sigurnost mi daje
   ja verujem u to...

"While there's been a lot of discussion about whether the Internet makes us dumb, a new infographic from SAP explores how companies and municipalities deploying so-called smart technologies can improve our lives rather than turn us into bleary-eyed dummies."

Distributed Datа: Consistency

Don't Settle for Eventual Consistency - ACM Queue:

"Geo-replication brings two key benefits to Web services: fault tolerance and low latency. It provides fault tolerance through redundancy: if one data center fails, others can continue to provide the service. It provides low latency through proximity: clients can be directed to and served by a nearby data center to avoid speed-of-light delays associated with cross-country or round-the-globe communication. 

Geo-replication brings its challenges, however. The famous CAP theorem, conjectured by Brewer1 and proved by Gilbert and Lynch,7 shows it is impossible to create a system that has strong consistency, is always available for reads and writes, and is able to continue operating during network partitions."

Dont Settle for Eventual Consistency

This experiment shows that for this real-world workload Eiger's causal consistency and stronger semantics do not impose significant overhead.

Learning Path: AngularJS @ pluralsight

Learning Path: AngularJS:

AngularJS has held the top spot at Pluralsight for several months, so it’s about time for an AngularJS learning path!

There is something a bit strange about Angular, to take so much attention...
And it is not an easy technology, it is just easy to start... 

The sooner "web components"  become part of HTML, the better,
since most of this "glue" is better in browser, not in script libraries.
