Re: High Scalability, the Blog
I wonder if there ever has been an industry or technology that has documented itself more than IT. Not likely, I'd say.

Re: High Scalability, the Blog
Blogs like these not only help people in discovering facts about websites that they visit everyday, these blogs are also a great place for anyone whose into developing websites as a freelancer, because they offer snippets of information that is hard to find elsewhere in that most of the things are so abstract one simply doesn't know what to search for.

It's really amazing isn't it? You can be a one-person start-up and build your infrastructure on the cheap.

Re: High Scalability, the Blog
What's remarkable to me is how much open source code now exists with which seemingly anyone with sufficient cash can start their own large-scale Website. Just fire up some servers in the cloud, for pennies an hour, and equip them with this and that kind of open source code, and you're in business. Clearly, you need some know-how, but even much of that seems to be on-tap.

Re: High Scalability
I think you may be right @toby. There certainly is a sharing ethos in IT starting, I suppose with the old IBM user group, called SHARE!

John, Thanks for sharing this. Perhaps the best thing about IT is how much people like to share what they know and help others along the same path. Maybe this is one reason why the sector has grown so big so fast.

Re: High Scalability, the Blog
I'm glad that blogs like this exist, while the base skills are all around it's not everyday that you run into someone with the experience necessary to pull off site building on this scale.  It's nice to have resources out there showing us how the big boys do it so that we can take some of that knowledge and use it to grow our own sites.  This opening up about large scale sites seems to be a growing trend, hopefully it continues and we get to see the inner workings of more big sites.

Thanks for the Link
High Scalability seems almost like an open-source blog where everyone can participate; a great way for people to ask questions and share information.  I see a lot of vocabulary there I've never seen before. :)  Makes me realize how little I know.
