This week we chat about SOLID, a project involving web creator Tim Berners-Lee. The idea is to provide individuals in Britain with a secure portal on the web that can store critical health data and give the patient the ability to move or share it securely. It involves some cool approaches to encryption and that old dream, The Semantic Web.

Episode Notes

You can find out more about Sir Berners-Lee’s work on Solid here.

Other topics discussed in this episode:

The Tao of Programming isn’t new, and some of its technical references are a bit out of date. But it’s still good for a laugh and little bit of enlightenment-lite.

Hypergrowth headaches (Ep. 485)

When a company hits a period of hypergrowth, developers are in for a thrill ride. They need to start scaling their systems, moving to service architectures and clouds, and looking to solve problems others haven’t. But hypergrowth brings headaches, too, and chief among them is how to keep everyone aware of what’s going on with teams that they aren’t a part of.
