Banker to the poor - the story of Muhammad Yusuf 's grameen & micro-finance, over-coming odds, and a good read if you are curious about lending.


Go Corp. with their tablet in the 80's.



made more alone time with my wife.


did patio have anything to do with the GTM?


hey netflix growth team,

1) you should launch your own contest to select 6 people to volunteer living under similiar conditions - but with unlimited netflix streaming access, vip access.

2) launch a weekly show just talking about what they watched.

3) then get audiences to recommend what the folks in the room should watch, through social voting/recommendation

that said, i'd imagine that most people in their lifetime may end up watching more than what the folks would watch in ~500 days



That's alllmost the plot of Mystery Science Theater 3000

Yes, because that experiment would be about as helpful, if not more, as studying the logistics of sending a group of people to Mars.

The best & key feature seems highly under-stated.

Until now, you could bind an ebs to only one instance.

Or had to use gluster / hdfs otherwise.

    Multiple Amazon EC2 instances can access an Amazon EFS file system
    at the same time, providing a common data source for
    workloads and applications running on more than one instance.
You effectively have a distributed filesystem now. this is great news.


this is the only real use-case IMO. Multiple instances being able to read/write to a single FS. Anything less would be a disappointment.
