  1. 36 Seconds That Changed Everything

    From the moment Steve Jobs announced it in 2007, anticipation for the first iPhone was off the charts. And when it shipped? Customers lined up around their local Apple stores; some arriving days before the phones could be bought.

    But the hype and hysteria left one group of cell phone users out – if you had a disability, the new hotness was just a cold, unresponsive rectangle of plastic and glass.

    This is the story of how that changed in June of 2009, and what it has meant to people who are blind, have a hearing disability, or experience motor delays.

    This is the story of iPhone accessibility.

  2. Should I Stay or Should I Go?

    Stories about people teetering on the edge of this question: Should they stay or go? A software writer loses his job, but refuses to go away. He continues to show up at work, sneaking in the door each day and putting in long hours on a project the company canceled. A student from Pakistan finishes four years of college in Philadelphia and has to decide whether to move back home. And other stories.

  3. Philosophy Overdose - Intro to the Philosophy of Mathematics (Ray Monk)

    A good introduction to the philosophy of mathematics by Ray Monk. He considers the issue of the nature of mathematical truth, what mathematics is actually about, and discusses the views of Plato, Aristotle, Immanuel Kant, Frege and Bertrand Russell… What are numbers? What is mathematics actually about? Is it something discovered or is it something constructed by the mind? From the time of Plato onward, people have regarded mathematical truth as an ideal. Unlike ordinary, empirical truth, mathematical truth seems necessary, eternal, incorrigible, and absolutely certain. This talk considers some of the ways in which philosophers have tried to account for the special nature of mathematical truth.

    Ray Monk is a British philosopher well known for his writings on Wittgenstein, Bertrand Russell, and the physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer. This talk is part of the Philosophy Cafe series given at the University of Southampton.

  4. Implementing Evolvable APIs - SXSW 2017

    Twelve Patterns for Evolvable APIs

    http://mamund.site44.com/talks/2017-03-sxsw/

    Code Patterns and Best Practices for Building Autonomous Clients

    The speed of feature release for web and mobile apps continues to increase, but it can grow costly and time consuming to constantly rebuild and redeploy client applications—especially through app stores, where updates can take more than a week to appear. What if you could add new features to an existing client without repeatedly installing new versions of the application? What would the code look like? What changes are needed to create a client that can adapt to changes in the service API? How much change is reasonably possible when both the client and API are able to evolve over time?

    Mike Amundsen offers 12 patterns and practices for building APIs that can safely evolve over time and client applications that can adapt to those changes without relying on explicit versioning systems or repeated redeployment. Whether you are responsible for building web frontends or APIs to serve those apps, Mike helps you identify key principles to increase the adaptability and evolvability of your web implementations.
