I recently was convinced that I need to look into Node.js to build simple webapps or tools, the sort of thing a programmer in a library is asked to do pretty much every day of the week. Yesterday, my friend Kevin Clarke from UCLA reminded me that he had mentioned Vert.x in the past, and that it is “like Node.js for Java.” He’s right. I do think Vert.x is at the top of my “things to play with more” stack. Thanks, Kevin!

Kevin Smith, who works at Duke University as their Scholarly Communications Officer, has posted an interesting piece about The Ironies of Risk Avoidance. I’m looking forward to reading the article, which was not published in D-Lib Magazine, but will be published soon.
