Link share on electric cars, Silicon Valley blindness, and complexity of cloud computing

Three articles as link share this Sunday - 1/2-09.

1 Daniel Roth from Wired on "Driven: Shai Agassi's Audacious Plan to Put Electric Cars on the Road".

2 Alan Wolk on "Scoble Blindness". This article discuss the problems or risk with a too narrow Silicon Valley view on the internet development.

3 Werner Vogel contributes to the discusson of the complexity of cloud computing in "Eventually Consistent - Revisited". the article is presented as: "The goal of this article is to raise awareness about the complexity of engineering systems that need to operate at a global scale and that require careful tuning to ensure that they can deliver the durability, availability, and performance that their applications require. One of the tools the system designer has is the length of the consistency window, during which the clients of the systems are possibly exposed to the realities of large-scale systems engineering."
