Velocity’s a wrap

This year’s Velocity Santa Clara conference is over. We’re happy to have met so many amazing IT pros.

Mobile is now the first screen

Mobile devices are replacing television as the first screen on which customers view video, because young people’s viewing habits are changing more rapidly than broadcasters can keep up with. The suddenly-rapid pace of digital change in the TV market may be a ‘ketchup moment’ and the TV industry will have to work on a mobile-first strategy. Not a digital-first strategy.

The promise of service workers

At the Velocity conference, Google’s Patrick Meenan talked about service workers – a way to run scripts in the browser, separate from the web page, opening the door to features which don’t need a web page or user interaction.

A digital gold rush?

The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is going to start monitoring bitcoin value. The warm hand of government regulations may be enough to take bitcoin into the mainstream.

Things are happening at Velocity

Where’s Pingdom? At the Velocity conference in Santa Clara, U.S.A. Welcome to booth 615 and connect with DevOps and web performance professionals. We’ll be introducing technologies and demo all products, including their integrations with Librato and Papertrail.

Graphene will rock your world

An international team of researchers based at MIT has figured out how to make the edges of the two-dimensional wonder material graphene behave like one-dimensional electronic wires. In terms of quantum computers, that’s an important advantage.

Twitter is back in Google’s search results

It’s just become easier to explore your interests across both Twitter and Google, since Google has added tweets to its search results on mobile. Google says this is an attempt to put “real-time info” into its results, and notes that it provides Twitter users with a larger audience for their content as well.

Light-speed computer technology

New microchips do away with converting photons to electrons by working exclusively with light particles. Since photons are the fastest-moving particles in the known universe, this has the potential to make computers incredibly fast.

Which stories grow wings on Facebook?

In Facebook’s News Feed, no one will see a story that doesn’t score well so their algorithms hides boring stories. And since you want your company’s content to be seen, here are some useful tips.

There’s money in the metrics

If you hate slow websites, you will love RUM. It completes the monitoring spectrum, enabling you to take targeted action and remove performance inhibitors. This puts you in a better position to commit to customer demands, marketing strategies and business revenue objectives. Here’s how you get the most out of Pingdom’s RUM features.

Violating the laws of physics

Is it possible to convert electrical energy into thrust without the need to expel any form of repellent? “Thrust measurements of the EmDrive defy classical physics’ expectations”, said NASA researchers.

A bright new world

Artficial Superintelligence (ASI) is an intellect that is much smarter than the best human brains in practically every field, including scientific creativity, general wisdom and social skills. Could ASI create opportunities for us to vastly increase our quality of life?

AI – Our final invention?

Will computers be powerful enough to go off and find their own paths, which may conflict with humanity’s? We can boil down all potential outcomes into two broad categories: that Artificial Superintelligence (ASI) would have the ability to send humans to either immortality or extinction. The very fact that many of the worlds’ most intelligent people feel this issue is worth a public stance should be enough to grab your attention.

Lethal autonomy

Fully autonomous robotic weapons that make lethal decisions about human beings all on their own are quickly becoming a reality. Advanced killer drones, automated weapons and AI-powered intelligence-gathering tools could take the decision to make war out of the hands of humans.

Attention!

The average attention span in 2000: 12 seconds. The average attention span in 2013: 8 seconds. The average attention span of a gold fish: 9 seconds.

New feature: Suggested monitoring

What if you could get a little help finding exactly what you should monitor on your website? A helpful wizard when you’re getting started? We have added a new onboarding service to the Pingdom uptime monitoring service, where we help you discover what to monitor.

Synthetic and RUM – Better together

Real User Monitoring (RUM) and Synthetic Monitoring are the two predominant end-user monitoring techniques. Leveraging one with the other allows for a more accurate and comprehensive monitoring experience. Here, we’ll show you how incredibly complimentary they are.

Online stores for indie brands

“From the very beginning, our ambition was to allow anyone, anywhere in the world, to be able to start and grow their online business for free,” said Siavash Ghorbani, CTO and co-founder of the Swedish DIY e-commerce platform company Tictail. “We didn’t build Tictail for one store. We built it for thousands and eventually millions of stores. In order to build a top-tier service that could scale for that, we needed best in breed monitoring and Pingdom was a natural choice.”
