Links of the day 23 - 02 - 2015

Today's links 23/02/2015: #Bitcoin K/V store, distributed systems, Job Titles and Latency visualization
  • Blockstore : experimental key-value store (for unique, global name registration and secure data storage) on top of Bitcoin. 
  • Highly Distributed Computations Without Synchronization : this article explore the basic building blocks for crafting deterministic applications that, when operating over data structures that guarantee convergence in the event of concurrent operations, guarantee convergence of the applications themselves. 
  • The Problem with Job Titles : interesting view on what job title really mean for different people. However this works both way, company misuse job title the same way employee misinterpret them. 
  • HdrHistogram : histogram designed for recoding histograms of value measurements in latency and performance sensitive applications. [github]
