Developers rule the world

we developers are ruling the world, think of any multi million dollar enterprise on this planet, chances are its being run on the shoulders of giant tech companies, and think of the people building these giant systems, they are all developers, fucking developers rule the world.


It has been awhile, I haven returned to write a post on my blog, so figured Id get back to it with this claim that I truly am beginning to believe more and more as I experience life in wall st and in technology in general..

Think of what the brightest mind of our generation is currently supposedly busy doing ?

They are working on optimizing the flow of money by manipulating ad exchanges for big search giants like google and facebook, they are making smartphones that are making the rest of us dumb, they are making games, dumb apps, some mind you are exploring the unknown frontiers of science with novel research, but the majority are just chasing the money check expanding the stock options of a few rich power players...

Also a lot of smart engineers and computer programmers work on projects that are looking to make us click ads, its a big money business and the engineering effort is titanic..If I can even use that as an adjective.

and lastly a good chunk of the smartest developers are working on technology for technology, like google, facebook, amazon, etc, they are building the tools that will power the tools of tomorrow, its code all the way down (,,like they said about the universe resting on the back of turtle, and someone asks whats the turtle resting on and you go, its turtles all the way down)

maybe I will come back and update this entry to expand on this, but will publish this draft as I've accumulated posts in my draft and haven't kept updating this blog as I wade through life as a developer. This is my entry in my log of life, my journal in cyberspace, public and informative and useful I hope to inspire everyone to carve out a space in cyberworld.

ip4 map

This image shows a visualization of BGP routing data taken from the Routeviews project. Here, 1-dimensional IPv4 address space is mapped into a 2-dimensional image using a 12th order Hilbert curve, as inspired by xkcd. This means that CIDR netblocks always appear as squares or rectangles in the image.
Address blocks are labeled based on IANA's list of IPv4 allocations. Early recipients of large "class A" address blocks appear in the upper left, while the areas labeled Various Registries indicate allocations from the former "class B" and "class C" regions. Since the mid-1990's all address space allocations are now made through the Regional Internet Registries: RIPE, APNIC, ARIN, LACNIC, and AfriNIC.
Each pixel in the original 4096 x 4096 image represents a single /24 network containing up to 256 hosts. The pixel color shows the size of the route advertisement covering that space ranging from /8 (purple) to /32 (red). Black represents space without a route and grey indicates reserved space. Prefixes are rendered in order from largest to smallest so that larger (covering) prefixes can be seen underneath the smaller (more specific) announcements.
