    1. Die Schrift alleine vermag es, nicht nur physische, sondern auch soziale Objekte wie Geld, Gesetze, Politiken und Identitäten zu übertragen. Mehr noch: Der Schrift, und allgemein der Aufzeichnung, gelingt ein Wunder, weil sie die sozialen Objekte konstruiert (verba volant, scripta manent: Das geschriebene Wort verfügte schon immer über diese Eigenschaft). Dies erklärt auch, warum die Schrift nicht verschwunden ist, wie vor fünfzig Jahren prophezeit wurde. Sie ist ganz im Gegenteil zu einer allgegenwärtigen Technologie geworden und darüber hinaus zum wichtigsten politischen, gesellschaftlichen und ökonomischen Spieleinsatz unserer Zeit. Diese Überraschung offenbart den Kern der gesellschaftlichen Wirklichkeit, die aus Dokumenten besteht.

    1. Die dokumentierte Gesellschaft ist daher weder flüssig noch diffus. Sie ist solider und widerständiger, als es jemals eine Gesellschaft war.
    1. Missing Archive, missing narrative? Where is the archive of Palestine, and who owns it? How did the missing archive create a void in the Palestinian narrative and what did the Palestinians do to compensate this? In her films, Mahasen Nasser Eldin does not only search for the archive but connects it to the present in an attempt to contribute to restoring the Palestinian memory and narrative. “Civilizations that write history are often remembered by the cultural heritage they leave for future generations. Therefore, the preservation of audio-visual heritage should be considered a national duty. Whoever controls archives and cultural collections decisively influences the writing of history – a principle that has been in evidence since antiquity.” Dr. Bashar Shammout, scholar on Palestinian archives
    1. It’s 1936, C.L.R. James is in Paris: “I look up in the archives. I look up, I look up, I look up in the archives, I spend three or four months looking up in the archives.” James’ friend Harry Spencer had given him seventy-five pounds to go to France and work in the Archives Nationales. “Every morning, walk up the Seine, the bank of Seine, go to the archives... At twelve o’clock they shut down, everywhere is closed up till tow. Archives close up, ‘St. James” closes up, off to eat. Very fine. At two o’clock, I go back. I work. The archives close at five or six. I go home.” James was in the archives because he was writing the history of the Haitian Revolution. Published in London in 1938, the bibliography of The Black Jacobins: Toussaint L’Ouverture and the San Domingo Revolution lists some eight archives consulted between France, Haiti, and Great Britain among many other printed primary and secondary sources. But even for the best historians and the most finely crafted (and critical) histories, the archive of the oppressed can be hard to find.

    1. Databases If databases data is stored on a ZFS filesystem, it’s better to create a separate dataset with several tweaks: zfs create -o recordsize=8K -o primarycache=metadata -o logbias=throughput -o mountpoint=/path/to/db_data rpool/db_data recordsize: match the typical RDBMSs page size (8 KiB) primarycache: disable ZFS data caching, as RDBMSs have their own logbias: essentially, disabled log-based writes, relying on the RDBMSs’ integrity measures (see detailed Oracle post)
    1. Summary This design of the Cambria-Automerge integration has several useful properties: Multi-schema: The document can be read and written in any schema at any time. A document has no single “canonical” schema—just a log of writes from many schemas. Self-evolving: The logic for evolving formats is contained within the document itself. An older client can read newer versions without upgrading its code, since it can retrieve new lenses from the document itself. Future-proof: Edits to the document are resilient to the addition of future lenses. Since no evolution is done on write, old changes can be evolved using lenses that didn’t even exist at the time of the original change. One area for future research is further exploring the interaction between the guarantees provided by lenses and CRDTs. For example, Automerge has different logic for handling concurrent edits on a scalar value and an array. But what happens if the concurrent edits are applied to an array in one schema, and a scalar value in another?
    1. Here we used two xargs commands. The first one builds a custom command line, using as input the output of the previous command in the pipe (being pidof sleep) and the second xargs command executes that generated, custom-per-input (important!), command.

    1. One of the criticisms I’ve heard since I realised that better datastructures were possible is that I was “working secretely”. I certainly understand this feeling, but this is based on a misunderstanding of how research works. When I first had the idea that I’m explaining in this post, I realised that a complete rewrite would be needed. But for a very long time, almost nothing other than unusable, unreadable prototypes happened.
