Mangling JSON numbers

TechEmpower

If we have a long (64-bit integer) that we serialize into JSON, we might be in trouble if JavaScript consumes that JSON. JavaScript has the equivalent of double (64-bit floating point) for its numbers, and double cannot represent the same set of numbers as long. If we are not careful, our long is mangled in transit. Consider 2 53 + 1. Failing fast.

Pragmatism with Flavor

TechEmpower

We build web and mobile applications, and we've been doing so for a little over fifteen years. To our delight, technology has evolved and improved in many ways over that time. Technology evolution can be cyclical, with some branches looping back to the past with surprising vigor and without much self-awareness. We love technology, but.

Storage worries

TechEmpower

In the 1980s, high-tech companies stored information about their customers on their sophisticated and high-cost computer equipment. Back then such practices were exceptional except at relatively large companies.

The post is aimed at CEOs of startups who have at least 15 employees.

Dedupe Your Processes

Feld Thoughts

The phrase “dedupe your processes” was created at a board meeting I was at last week. If you know our portfolio, you probably can figure out which board meeting it was based on the use of the word dedupe. But it’s so f **g hard. If you disagree, do a quick reality check. Skype, Hangouts, Bluejeans. Asana, Trello, Basecamp.

Looking Forward to 2025

Feld Thoughts

If we fund an early stage startup company today and it’s hugely successful, it’ll be coming into its own in 2025. Ponder that for a moment. That’s how our business – and entrepreneurship – really works. The first was with a company started in 2011 that is now a real business. From the epic Inc.

Active vs Passive Investing

A VC : Venture Capital and Technology

When you buy a stock in the public markets, that is passive investing. When you buy 10% of that public company in the open market and then seek to obtain board seats, that is active investing.
