Datacenter Renewable Power Done Right: All the article is interesting, but I think this gives something away about how Amazon prices AWS: “Amazon Web Services added an interesting innovation where they sell the remaining capacity not fully consumed by this natural flattening of the peak to average. These troughs are sold on a spot market and customers are often able to buy computing at less the amortized cost of the equipment they are using”. I wonder if that means that the normal pricing strategy for AWS is simply to amortize the cost (presumably taking projected usage into account)?
- A Natural Language to SPARQL translator. Apparently used regular expressions to parse natural language(!). Can handle “what is the population of Australia”, but fails on “what is the population of Adelaide” (thinks Adelaide is a country). Fails very badly on “When was Australia founded?” (thinks Australia is a band!) Based on https://github.com/machinalis/quepy
