Email Etiquette: Netiquette in the Information Age

by David Tuffley

There are no 'official' rules governing electronic communication. While there have been attempts to establish one standard or another as the default, there is no common agreement. So beware people telling you there is one right way, they are assuming too much. As a general rule though, netiquette involves the same principles as plain old etiquette -- basic courtesy, respect and ethics. Treat people the way you would want to be treated yourself. By following the principles outlined below, the recipient of your email will be more likely to read and act, if not be favorably impressed by your message: Subject line to summarise the message. Make the Subject line summarise the body of the e-mail. Ask yourself, 'will the recipient know what this e-mail is about'. For example, Instead of Subject: ...

How Data Science Is Transforming Health Care

by Colin Hill

In the early days of the 20th century, department store magnate John Wanamaker famously said, "I know that half of my advertising doesn't work. The problem is that I don't know which half." That remained basically true until Google transformed advertising with AdSense based on new uses of data and analysis. The same might be said about health care and it's poised to go through a similar transformation as new tools, techniques, and data sources come on line. Soon we'll make policy and resource decisions based on much better understanding of what leads to the best outcomes, and we'll make medical decisions based on a patient's specific biology. The result will be better health at less cost. This paper explores how data analysis will help us structure the business of health care more effect...

What is DevOps?

by Mike Loukides

Have we entered the age of NoOps infrastructures? Hardly. Old-style system administrators may be disappearing in the face of automation and cloud computing, but operations have become more significant than ever. As this O’Reilly Radar Report explains, we’re moving into a more complex arrangement known as "DevOps." Mike Loukides, O’Reilly’s VP of Content Strategy, provides an incisive look into this new world of operations, where IT specialists are becoming part of the development team. In an environment with thousands of servers, these specialists now write the code that maintains the infrastructure. Even applications that run in the cloud have to be resilient and fault tolerant, need to be monitored, and must adjust to huge swings in load. That was underscored by Amazon’s EBS o...

Keyword Filter Testing Manual

by A. Datta

Web content filters like Dansguardian or POESIA on Linux and SafeSquid on Windows and Linux block out undesirable content. Ironically, after installation and configuration of such a content filter the standard way to test it is to attempt to visit one of those very websites one wishes to block. While that kind of a final check may be reasonable to conduct in certain situations, it should be preceded by a safer method – one that cannot expose the user to hardcore porn even if the blocker fails. This book will give you that method to test your content filter which you have set up to guard your computer's browsers. As a bonus you also receive access to a set of web shortcuts …...
