Your chance to own a piece of contemporary jewellery! Suspended in Pink Raffle

Musings about the Suspended in Pink Raffle.

Thanks to Marthe Le Van's recent article, I have been thinking about the 'Suspended in Pink' raffle.

Here is an extract:

"As a retail storeowner and salesperson, the raffle felt amateurish, gimmicky, and a bit desperate—like when I heard about Facebook for the first time. Ultimately, after reconciling all my perspectives, I believe there is much to applaud in the Suspended in Pink raffle. It feels fresh and innovative, optimistic and courageous, liberating and democratic—all worthy consequences pointing toward progress"

Now, I have no problem at all about an idea of mine being compared to the early Facebook- and I am the first to admit the visuals, practicalities and how the raffle is presented still needs some work!
Most raffles are devised as a means of fundraising, to enable an exhibition, event etc... Seen by the  Borax Collective , Handshake Jewellery and an American Art Jewellery group  ( i am sure there are many many more).

And as Le Van notices, through her many astute questions, fundraising is not the aim of the 'Suspended in Pink' Raffle...




So what is it? and WHY should you take part?


I go to many many exhibitions every year. But As a wanna-be collector, I have only three small pins.
I dont want a specially designed brooch with a groups logo on it, a sample piece or a bunch of postcards as a consolation prize- I want THE piece. 

          I want to own Silke Fleischer's amazing necklace and Sam Hamilton's 'Bread' Like brooch.





As a practitioner is who interested in engagement and audience interaction, I am always looking for ways to get my audience to wear the jewellery, understand it, and imagine owning it- and that, in my view, is the real strength of the 'Suspended in Pink' raffle.




So the idea of raffling off one of the jewellery pieces from the Suspended in Pink Exhibition seemed an obvious idea.






 But its more then that.... Once a viewer decides   they wish to take part in the raffle, they then can spend up to an hour, going through the exhibition, trying on the jewellery, comparing, assessing, deciding which item THEY would take home.


Deciding which piece of jewellery spoke out the most to them.





And this was then the piece that they would then bet on.
Maybe they would win it, maybe not- but for £5/€6/$8 it seems like a worth while experience to have- the experience of wearing and imagining that favourite piece of jewellery which YOUR ticket could win you....


And here is the good news- the odds of winning in this raffle are actually really high!

Only a small number of people have guessed the same names, and there are a number of exhibitors who's name has not been guessed yet-

So you have a real chance of winning....


All you have to do is email:
suspendedinpink@gmail.com
with: your name, the name of the artist who you want to win-

And to send payment of £5/€6/$8 by paypal to:
suspendedinpink@gmail.com

The winner is announced this Autumn!

Jo Pond selected a name from the hat-

So, Now, All you have to do is:
1. Guess who's name is in the envelope
2. Purchase a raffle ticket (£5/€6/$8) by contacting Laura at suspendedinpink@gmail.com, or at one of the exhibitions
3. Love and look after your ticket until the end of our exhibition at the Heidi Lowe Gallery, to see if you have won an item of jewellery from one of our exhibitors!!!!



So, Where does your money go?
Firstly, I truely believe that all artists should be paid for their hard work! SO, rather then asking the participanting artists in 'Suspended in Pink' to donate a piece of jewellery, we shall be purchasing that item, using the money raised in the raffle. Any extra earned income will be invested in the the exhibition, allowing use to travel to new additional and exciting venues throughout the year!

Thanks to Marthe Le Van for aking these questions- hope I have answered them :)

 What if no one guessed the right jeweler? 
Ans: We will chose another name from a hat, and will keep doing it until we have a winner!

What if several people did? 

Ans: We will put there names in a hat and chose from one of these names. Those who guessed right, but did not win the actual piece will win a very small consolation prize.

Who pays shipping and customs? 
Ans: I do!

Will the package be insured? 
Ans: Yes!


Any further questions on this are welcome, just contact Laura at suspendedinpink@gmail.com

Netflix全球CDN运维之道   

Cache   

在最近的Strange Loop大会上,Netflix工程经理、OpenConnect工具团队负责人Robert Fernandes就Netflix内部的OpenConnect内容交付网络运营事宜发表了演讲

这个演讲对Netflix转向使用内部CDN Open Connect以及这次转变给运营团队带来的挑战进行了总结。Open Connect团队负责处理与向订阅者交付内容相关的事宜,包括技术运营、库存管理和合作伙伴管理。他们强烈感觉到需要自动化这些活动,但不同的团队各自构建了独立的应用程序,这给部署带来了新的挑战。Fernandes谈到了他们计划如何应对这些挑战。

Netflix的大多数服务都运行在AWS上。Netflix在2007年开始提供流媒体服务,到2009年已经建立了一个叫作Netflix Content Control Plane (NCCP)的内部控制中心。NCCP将最终用户引导到正确的边缘(CDN位置),而实际的内容交付是由第三方提供商完成的,如Akamai、Level 3 Communications和Limelight Networks。该团队于2011年迁移到内部CDN,并将其称为Open Connect,随之而来的是基础设施管理工作。

Netflix应用程序客户端(移动、桌面等)在请求视频时通常会接收到3个域名。OpenConnect向应用程序提供内容和静态资源,比如JavaScript。CDN由定制服务器Open Connect Appliance (OCA)组成,它们都是缓存服务器。它们运行在装有nginx的FreeBSD版本上。总共有两种缓存服务器,一种是相对较慢的HDD,用于批量存储目录,一种是基于闪存的服务器,配备了固态硬盘,具备相对较高的吞吐量,主要用于服务热点内容。Netflix的内容服务器使用了10000多个设备,部署在全球1000多个站点中。一些站点由ISP负责管理服务器,一些站点则由Netflix直接控制和管理硬件。

Open Connect团队的职能被分为开发、运营、网络管理和非技术职能(如合作伙伴管理和交付)。各个团队都从解决自己领域的问题开始,最后得到的是单体应用,Open Connect Tools团队就是为了缓解这种局面而成立的。它负责警报、监控、配置管理、部署自动化、库存管理、日志和指标,以及合作伙伴自助服务。负责控制平面的团队更关注CDN的内容布局、地理布局、路由和安全性。演讲并没有深入探讨应用程序或自动化技术细节。他们未来的计划是使用进一步“分层方法”处理微服务,并提出可以在团队之间共享的公共解决方案。


          

知乎移动端云测试平台实践:Agent 设计和实现   

Cache   

背景

在云测试平台设计中,Agent 的设计一般来讲需要考虑如下一些场景:

  • 移动设备的交互控制是否需要 PC 设备的支持

    和移动端设备进行数据交互,主要有两种方式,一是通过常规官方建议的 PC - Mobile 的调试方式,使用公共协议如:adb、usbmuxd 进行数据交互,二是直接在 Mobile 中植入代码,通过代码调用系统 API 和服务端进行交互,省去 PC 的中转环节

  • 移动设备在测试任务执行上如何隔离

    设备在使用过程中还需要考虑到它会执行哪个 APP 、哪一种类型的 APP、哪一组人员、哪一种测试类型等的业务测试,所以在设计时需要考虑单个设备的「原子性」

  • 设备如何做到动态运维和自动化程度

    设备的维护对于服务端来讲一般都会以设备池的方式运行,这样就需要考虑到增加、删除设备对设备池带来的影响,同时如果设备的维护在公共实验室或者在远端的机房,那对应的操作就需要远程完成,所以设备的维护、重置、监控等相关的操作也需要提供远程 API

  • 自动化框架选择和运行环境

    自动化测试是云测试的主要目的,自动化框架的选择会影响自动化测试能力的扩展范围,所以需要选择一款合适的「基础」自动化测试框架
