Weekly Digest #40
The current state of software is such that everything depends on everything else. If one essential component ceases to be maintained, or is sold to another (more malicious) actor, the software which depends on it will break.
It is clear that FOSS (free open source software) has a massive social benefit, but the private benefit to the developer is very low. Therefore, incentives matter. In order for the developers to continue their projects, they must have an incentive to do so.
Memory Bottleneck -> Deprecate In-Memory Index
- move the in-memory index to an external data store. This removed the need for shards entirely
Garbage Collection CPU Pressure -> Heap Optimizations
- cleaning up unused data fields
- reducing the number of long-living objects in favor of creating objects on demand
- pooling objects to reduce large allocation bursts.
Scale & Latency
- Parallelization and Caching
- Real-Time Data Updates

The misalignment between the force of buoyancy and the force of gravity of the object will create torque causing the object to rotate until it finds its equilibrium.
