[Links of the Day] 19/07/2018 : High perf distributed data storage, Economics of Landmines and ARPA model

  • Crail : high-performance distributed data store designed for fast sharing of ephemeral data in distributed data processing workloads
  • The economics of landmines : economic paper on the effects of post-war landmine contamination and the influence on the population and economic society as they slowly get cleared up. I would guess that to some extent the same models and impact could be applied to toxic waste contamination area. 
  • ARPA Model : how the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) model works and how it has evolved since its inception in 1958. The authors also look at the challenge the agency is facing in the years to come.
