Most performance comes not from the language, but from application design - Twitter

Thanks to two good friends and colleagues, Dan Wilson and Rex Vincent, I got to read two great threads two years apart about Twitter and they are classic examples of handling a dramatic increase in traffic, which is often the world I am embroiled in.  Dan and I attended the O'Reilley Velocity Conference in San Jose a couple of years ago and it was an eye-opener for both of us. Our biggest single take-away, was that well managed caching was probably the greatest single performance benefit we can utilize, it is the well managed part that matters, of course.  Personally, I am very interested in the close working together of EHCACHE-Terracotta and Adobe with ColdFusion and possibly other Adobe server paradigms. You can look forward to some interesting facts and figures at the Adobe MAX ColdFusion Unconference on this subject.

So with no further ado here are those two Twitter threads, I recommend both highly there is a lot of great information and pointers here and some good links...

Now everybody from kids to granny holds a twitter account. Twitter provides a wonderful platform to keep in touch with your family and friends. Besides this you can share you posts and ideas here. However, many uses this social networking site for some anti social activities and this should be stopped at any cost.

It's hard to tell with these Internet startups if they're really interested in building companies or if they're just interested in the money. I can tell you, though: If they don't really want to build a company, they won't luck into it. That's because it's so hard that if you don't have a passion, you'll give up.

It can seem challenging to find good topics for your Business Law Term paper. Some good ideas to consider are papers on topics such as regulation or employee relations. You could also write about contracts or tort law.
