* Polling: It's Good Enough for the WWW & It's Good Enough for You

Lately everyone loves pushing: you get push notifications on your iOS device, cloud to device messages on your Android device, and something about web sockets. Pushing seems natural. "Hey! I have some data for you, let me send it to you," says the pusher. Too bad it doesn't scale effectively.

* Women & Computing

Before there were even computers to program women were making exiciting advances in computing. In the 1800s Ada Lovelace wrote the first computer program. She died before the computer was completed, but when her program was eventually ran it Just Worked™! The gender imbalance in computing is a problem. We all know software engineers are shaping the future. Women need to be part of the discussion.
