Geek Reading December 1, 2015

Leading today we have a post on Psy-Q’s Braindump about how we need to save Mozilla in order to defend the free web. I am not sure if I agree with the premise that Chrome and its engine are taking over the web, especially given the size of Facebook and its ecosystem, but it is still worth reading. John D. Cook gives us his thoughts on learning harder technology, specifically when the idea is to support consulting revenue. This is interesting more from the perspective of how you decide to learn new things as well as building a consulting practice. I agree with John, this sounds a bit risky. Lastly, the Netflix tech blog gives us some really nice pointers on what the first 60 seconds of Linux system performance analysis should look like.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
