Killexams : Reviving The Best Keyboard Ever

For the last few decades, the computer keyboard has been seen as just another peripheral. There’s no need to buy a quality keyboard, conventional wisdom goes, because there’s no real difference between the fancy, ‘enthusiast’ keyboards and ubiquitous Dell keyboards that inhabit the IT closets of offices the world over.

Just like the mechanic who will only buy a specific brand of wrenches, the engineer who has a favorite pair of tweezers, or the amateur woodworker who uses a hand plane made 150 years ago, some people who use keyboards eight or twelve hours a day have realized the older tools of the trade are better. Old keyboards, or at least ones with mechanical switches, aren’t gummy, they’re precise, you don’t have to hammer on them to type, and they’re more ergonomic. They sound better. Even if it’s just a placebo effect, it doesn’t matter: there’s an effect.

This realization has led to the proliferation of high-end keyboards and keyboard aficionados hammering away on boards loaded up with Cherry MX, Alps, Gateron, Topre, and other purely ‘mechanical’ key switches. Today, there are more options available to typing enthusiasts than ever before, even though some holdouts are still pecking away at the keyboard that came with the same computer they bought in 1989.

The market is growing, popularity is up, and with that comes a herculean effort to revive what could be considered the greatest keyboard of all time. This is the revival of the IBM 4704 terminal keyboard. Originally sold to banks and other institutions, this 62-key IBM Model F keyboard is rare and coveted. Obtaining one today means finding one behind a shelf in an IT closet, or bidding $500 on an eBay auction and hoping for the best.

Now, this keyboard is coming back from the dead, and unlike the IBM Model M that has been manufactured continuously for 30 years, the 62-key IBM Model F ‘Kishsaver’ keyboard is being brought back to life by building new molds, designing new circuit boards, and remanufacturing everything IBM did in the late 1970s.

The Rise Of Mechanical Keyboards

The first computer keyboards, found in the Commodore 64, the original Macintosh, and the first PCs were not the keyboards you would find being used today. These keyboards used mechanical switches with moving parts, a satisfying clack but were exceptionally expensive. There was also little standardization; the DEC VT100 terminal used complicated leaf spring switches made by Hi-Tek, the original Macintosh, Commodore Amiga, and Atari 800 used coiled spring switches from Mitsumi. IBM, though their typewriter division, manufactured their own key switches from the 1970s onward, beginning with a conversion of the Selectric typewriter for computer use to beam spring key switches in the 1970s to buckling spring switches in the 1980s.

The buckling spring key switch in action. In the Model F, the paddle is a contact between two capacitive sensing pads. In the Model M, the paddle closes a membrane switch.

Where the rest of the computer industry would slowly move away from mechanical key switches towards membrane or ‘rubber dome’ switches, IBM was surprisingly steadfast. The IBM Model F, the first keyboard to use buckling springs, would appear on the market with the System/23 in August of 1981, a month before the release of the original IBM PC. The IBM Model M keyboard would replace the Model F in 1985, but the basic mechanism remained the same: a spring would press a rocker in the base of the key, and the sufficient force was applied, the spring would ‘buckle’, pushing the rocker down onto a capacitive contacts or a membrane switch.

The usual mechanical key switch mechanisms found in high-end keyboards today – based on the Cherry MX and ALPS switches – do double duty as leaf springs and electrical contacts. The buckling spring mechanism is baroque in its complexity, relying on a spring and paddle to register a keypress. This complexity is assuredly not the result of building a keyboard down to a price point, and gives the buckling spring keyboards a satisfying tactile feel that only gets better after a few decades of use.

IBM sold the unit responsible for manufacturing the Model M to Lexmark in 1991, and in 1996, the employees at this plant purchased the rights and injection molds to create Unicomp. Yes, you can still buy a Model M keyboard made in Lexington, Kentucky for about the same price as what IBM was selling these keyboards for back in 1986. These are Model M keyboards, though, and the tooling and technology required to produce the arguably superior Model F keyboard disappeared off the face of the planet sometime in the 1980s.

The Kishsaver

IBM’s Model F keyboards look odd to the modern eye. Most keyboards from the 1970s and 1980s do as well. This was a time when keyboard layouts were in flux. Even the most common elements of the computer keyboard were constantly changing in this era. The ‘inverted T’ layout of the arrow keys was first popularized by the DEC LK201 keyboard from 1982, most commonly found in conjunction with the VT-220 terminal. Numpads were fairly common, but the keys underneath the left hand pinky – Control, Alt, Caps Lock, and Tab – wouldn’t be standardized until the mid 1980s. Even the Windows key, or whatever the key between the left Control and Alt keys is called, wouldn’t appear until 1994 with the Microsoft Natural Keyboard.

Although keyboard layout designs would standardise around the ANSI or ISO specifications sometime in the late 80s, there were still enthusiasts looking for compact and minimalist keyboards. Numpads weren’t necessary for these people, and everything was more efficient. The Control key was where the Caps Lock key was, as god intended. The Happy Hacking Keyboard, a tiny 60-key keyboard designed for *nix operating systems, became a status symbol. The age of keyboard enthusiasts had arrived.

Sometime around 2012, on a few of the Internet’s largest mechanical keyboard communities, news of a strange IBM keyboard made the rounds. It was small, with just 62 keys, made out of metal, and used the buckling spring key switches of the Model F. It was the IBM 4704, Part Number 6019284. This keyboard was re-discovered by a forum member named Kishy. Since IBM was wont to put a ‘space saver’ label on their smaller keyboards, the portmanteau ‘Kishsaver’ stuck.

The Kishsaver was a true Model F, made of metal, and could serve as an impromptu melee weapon in the event of a zombie apocalypse. It had the IBM aura about it, and it was rare. This wasn’t a keyboard that anyone buying a home computer would have had – this was a keyboard hooked up to terminals and connected to the main office’s mainframe. This was a keyboard that also had a relatively modern layout, and played to the minimalist proclivities of the mechanical keyboard enthusiast. Needless to say, demand outstripped supply, and today a Kishsaver will cost you about $500, if you can find it.

Remanufacturing The Kishsaver

Find any piece of popular, discontinued tech, and you’ll find a replica and reproduction. In the computer world, it’s easy to find a reproduction of the Apple I. This observation extends to classic cars, motorcycles, and even hand tools. It was almost inevitable a classic IBM keyboard would eventually be cloned and remanufactured, all it took was someone to pool their resources, find the people who could do the work, and start a business. All it would take is someone with a little bit of experience.

This person happened to be [Ellipse] on the Geekhack and Deskthority keyboard forums. He’s handled group buys for forum members for open source keyboard controllers that convert the ancient electronics inside IBM keyboards into something that speaks USB. These keyboard controllers were designed by [xwhatsit] as open source alternatives to old electronics boards, but as with so many electronics projects, a lot of people don’t want to deal with Mouser or Digikey orders, and they can’t handle a soldering iron anyway.

With a little bit of manufacturing under his belt, [Ellipse] turned to the Model F Kishsaver. He’s disassembled, repaired, cleaned, and restored a lot of these keyboards over the years, and after carefully measuring his collection of 77- and 122-key Model Fs, he had the data to start talking to manufacturers.

Like any manufacturing project these days, [Ellipse] turned to China. Of course the original molds and dies for the Kishsaver don’t exist anymore, but a lot of the legwork has already been done. The keyboard controller board was already taken care of thanks to [xwhatsit]’s modernization. The Model F keyboard is built around a huge PCB, and with a few Kishsavers floating around, reverse engineering this PCB proved relatively easy.

The plastic paddles and
The switches of the Model F are capacitive, meaning the paddles need to be conductive. These paddles were replicated from conductive plastic.

The problem, as with so many projects, is the mechanical design. Molds needed to be made, the right type of plastic for the conductive ‘flippers’ of the buckling spring mechanism needed to be sourced, parts were cast, and dies were formed. New metal cases for the Kishsaver were created and powder coated. If you have an old Kishsaver, every new part is a drop in replacement for the old. Even the styrofoam packaging is a replica; [Ellipse] took measurements of the original IBM packaging materials and replicated with new molds.

The remanufacturing of the IBM Model F 62-key keyboard is among the top achievements among vintage computer enthusiasts. The only comparable project would be an Apple 1 replica built up from parts with late 1975 date codes. It’s an exceptional achievement for the mechanical keyboard community, made even more impressive by the fact that no keyboard manufacturer has taken up Model F manufacturing.

Model F Improved.

These efforts have culminated in a group buy on the Internet’s major keyboard forums, and an online shop that will sell the 62-key and 77-key Model F for $325 to $376, depending on options. Both the powder coated eggshell and the somewhat anachronistic industrial gray cases are available, with key caps sourced from Unicomp, the current manufacturers of the Model M.

Still, booting up an entire manufacturing line through what is effectively the trust of a community isn’t easy. [Ellipse] says he would like to do die-cast aluminum enclosures, instead of the machined aluminum cases he has now. Die casting would greatly reduce the manufacturing costs, the relatively inexpensive machining of each individual enclosure for the one-time but high cost of producing a steel mold. Still, individually machined enclosures allow for some experimentation, such as the ‘ultra compact’ case design that capitalizes on the modern, smaller controller board and appeals to modern design sensibilities.

For all the hullabaloo about hardware entrepreneurs, the maker movement, crowdfunding, rapid prototyping, and Chinese manufacturing, there aren’t many real success stories. Sure, there are hardware startups coasting on Y Combinator funding, but when it comes to actually producing something people want, there really aren’t many companies out there. For someone who is just an enthusiast, someone who isn’t a programmer, engineer, or product designer to pull a team together to remanufacture the best that came out of IBM in the 1970s is remarkable. It’s a testament to what a community can do, and what a single, dedicated person can achieve.

Killexams : These 15 Data Fabrics Made the Cut in Forrester’s Wave

(3dreams/Shutterstock)

If you’re in the market for a data fabric, then you might be interested in a latest report from Forrester, which published a Wave report in June detailing the pros and cons of more than a dozen data fabrics offerings.

Enterprises that are struggling to manage big data for advanced analytics and AI projects are increasingly turning to data fabrics, which help by centralizing access the variety of tools and capabilities needed to work with data in a governed, responsible manner (if not centralizing the data itself).

It’s a fairly new space, yet data fabrics from 15 vendors made the cut in the Forrester Wave: Enterprise Data Fabric Q2, 2022. The report was written by analyst Noel Yuhanna, who was involved in defining the new category, with help from Forrester analysts Aaron Katz, Angela Lozada, and Katie Pierpont.

Forrester ranked the data fabric offerings across 26 criteria, and based on the results, separated the contenders into three groups, including leaders, strong performers, and contenders. Here’s a brief rundown on the  offerings and how they stack up.

Data Fabric Leaders

Informatica: The integration giant has moved solidly into the data fabric space, where Forrester considers it a leader, with strengths in core data fabric areas like catalog, discovery, transformation, lineage, processing, events, and transaction processing.

“Informatica has a strong product vision that demonstrates a commitment to expanded data fabric use cases,” Yuhanna wrote. The company lags in open source support and partner ecosystem tooling, however.

Oracle: This vendor is leveraging its strength in databases, data management, security, and replication as it moves into the data fabric space, Yuhanna said.

“Oracle’s superior vision focuses on a unified, intelligent, and automated platform to accelerate use cases, leveraging AI/ML, transactions, knowledge graph, data products, and semantics,” the analyst wrote.

Denodo: The longtime data virtualization player is now one of the leaders in the data fabric space by expanding its capabilities in integration, management, and delivery. Its strengths lie in data connectivity, integration, processing, transactional workload, transformation, access, search, and delivery, Yuhanna wrote.

“Denodo’s data fabric roadmap suggests improved data pipeline automation, extended graph capabilities, extended AI/ML capabilities within the platform, and simplified administration for a geodistributed environment,” Yuhanna wrote.

IBM: Big Blue has been a longtime player in the master data management (MDM) space, and it’s moved aggressively to become a data fabric player, according to Yuhanna.

IBM is strong in areas like data modeling, catalog, governance, pipeline, discovery and classification, event and transaction processing, and deployment options, Yuhanna wrote. “However, it lags in data quality, scale, automation, ecosystem tooling, and supporting an end-to-end integrated data fabric solution.”

SAP: The ERP giant has a comprehensive data fabric solution that can handle complex use cases for large companies, either on-prem or with hybrid deployments. Yuhanna said it’s ideal for existing SAP customers that want to bring non-SAP data into the fold.

SAP’s data fabric does many things well, including semantic data modeling, catalog, governance and security, connectivity, discovery and classification, quality, transformation and lineage, events and transactions, access and delivery, and deployment options, according to Yuhanna. But it lags in administration and end-to-end integration.

Talend: The longtime data and application integration vendor is also a leader in the nascient data fabric space, according to the Forrester analysis. “Talend has demonstrated a strong ability to execute on its vision as well as a consistent track record of install base and outstanding client satisfaction,” Yuhanna wrote.

Strengths for Talend lie in data connectivity, processing and persistence, and deployment options. Concerns exist around its catalog and reference data, administration, automation, and offering an integrated end-to-end solution.

Data Fabric Strong Performers

Teradata: The data warehousing giant has made inroads into the data fabric space, with strengths in areas like semantics, data quality, and catalogs. Its roadmap is focused on filling feature gaps in areas like data integration, catalog, governance, semantics, automation, and support for new connectors, Yuhanna wrote.

“Although Teradata on par with the competition around product enhancements, execution roadmap, innovation roadmap, and performance,” he wrote, “its strongest strategic point is its partner ecosystem, which is extensive and covers the needs of most customer.”

Cloudera: The one-time Hadoop darling is a big supporter of hybrid data platforms, which is what data fabrics are all about these days. The company’s data fabric strengths lay in data pipelines and streaming data, data processing and persistence, and data delivery, Yuhuanna wrote.

TIBCO Software: The TIBCO Connected Intelligence Platform offers “good capabilities,” according to Forrester, which noted high scores in data connectivity, catalog and reference data pipelines, streaming data, integration, data processing, and persistence, and data delivery.

However, the product lags in several areas, including automation, governance, transformation and lineage, and end-to-end connectivity. TIBCO’s roadmap also is underwhelming, per the analyst group.

Qlik: The business intelligence vendor delivers data fabric capabilities in its Active Intelligence Platform, which received high scores in data connectivity and delivery, governance, data access and search, processing, deployment options, and administration.

But Qlik lags in delivering an end-to-end data fabric solution, with gaps in data modeling, discovery and classification, and transformation, Forrester says. Support was also flagged as a potential issue.

Cinchy: The data fabric from Cinchy benefits from being an “end-to-end” solution “with a high degree of automation” that simplifies development and deployment and offers “excellent data delivery capabilities.” One customer applauded Cinchy’s query, auditing, and workflow capabilities.

But it lags in basic capabilities, such as data discovery and classification, and processing, Forrester says. It also has limited scalability, and the partner ecosystem is small, according to Forrester.

Data Fabric Contenders

Cambridge Semantics: This data fabric offering is based on Cambridge Semantics’ AnzoGraph database, and offers features like data integration, graph algorithms, analytics, and ML. Data harmonization, including structured and unstructured data, is a strength for Cambridge Semantics, which Forrester says is strong in data discovery and classification, and data access and search.

However, Cambridge Semantics’ vision is “too knowledge-graph-centric, which is no longer differentiating,” Forrester says. The product lags in data governance, transactional, and data event processing capabilities, the analyst group says.

Forrester analyst Noel Yuhanna has helped define the data fabric category

Hitachi Vantara: An established data fabric with foundations in “total visibility with data modernization services,” Hitachi Vantara has some bright spots, Forrester says. Its strengths lay in data connectivity and data processing and persistence.

However, it lags in several areas, including the data catalog, governance, data quality, administration, data access and search, and end-to-end integration. High complexity was also cited by a customer.

Solix Technologies: This vendor comes from an archival background, and its Common Data Platform (CDP) received good scores from Forrester in areas like data connectivity, discovery, classification, processing, delivery, transformation, lineage, and deployment options.

However, the vendor lags in several areas, including semantic data modeling, data pipeline, transactional capabilities, data quality, end-to-end integration, and scalability. The vendor also faces struggles with “a small market presence, little innovation on its roadmap, and enhancements that largely fill feature gaps,” Forrester says.

HPE: The computer giant’s Ezmeral Data Fabric is critical in helping to ease access to HPE customers’ data stored on-prem, the cloud, and on the edge. It hits the mark for data catalog, discovery, classification, transformation, lineage, data processing and persistence, data access, search, and data delivery, according to Forrester.

However, HPE (which declined to participate in the full evaluation process, Forrester says) lags in several key areas, including semantic data modeling, pipelines, connectivity, quality, handling events and transactions, administration, and offering an end-to-end integrated solution, the analyst group says.

Killexams : 5G Networks Moving To Cloud With IBM Satellite And AT&T Connection

One of the many interesting aspects of big technology trends is how seemingly independent efforts end up getting intertwined over time. The most latest example is the multi-level link between cloud computing and 5G, with the common ties of hybrid clouds, private networks, and edge computing all coming together to enable a potentially powerful—but also potentially confusing—combination of capabilities.

In two separate, but related announcements, IBM recently highlighted how its new Cloud Satellite private/hybrid cloud platform can be used to get telecom service provider customers to modernize more of their existing infrastructure and how it can help a specific telco provider (AT&T in this case) offer more of the edge computing-type services that these modernization efforts enable. The timing of these announcements seemed a bit backwards in that the IBM Cloud/AT&T partnership news came first, before the launch of the IBM Cloud for Telecommunications that could theoretically enable it, but that may have been due to legal approvals of the press releases more than anything.

Regardless, it makes more logical sense to discuss the second bit of news first, because it helps set the stage for the new applications in the first announcement. To that end, IBM’s Cloud for Telecommunications looks to be an auspicious effort to bring together more than 35 different companies to help modernize 5G network infrastructure. Each of the announced ecosystem partners is offering tools that can help move telcos from the traditional closed-box hardware infrastructure that they’ve used for the last few decades into more modern, cloud computing-like architectures. (See “IBM Brings Open Hybrid Cloud Strategy To 5G And The Edge” for an overview of the company’s initial efforts here.)

This transition is expected to be a long, complicated, but potentially very profitable process, hence the high degree of participation from many large vendors, including Microsoft, Samsung, Cisco, Dell, HPE, Lenovo, and Nokia in addition to IBM. At the same time, the transition is critical to the long-term success of 5G, because many of its advanced capabilities are only possible with the type of more modern, software-defined open infrastructure that this effort is intended to enable (see “Will 5G Networks Move to Open RAN?” for more).

For IBM, the industry-specific focus of this telecommunications cloud effort is conceptually similar to what it did with its latest financial industry launches (see “New IBM Offering Highlights Rise Of Specialty Clouds”). It is also an excellent vehicle for the company to debut its new Cloud Satellite offering, which is a private/hybrid cloud platform akin to Amazon’s AWS Outposts or Microsoft’s Azure Stack, where the core IBM Cloud services can be run remotely or on-premise on a wide range of base hardware.

One of the many challenges in getting telco providers to embrace and leverage cloud-native computing architectures for their core network functions is the highly distributed nature of today’s telco networks. Practically speaking, it would be impossible for telco service providers to rely solely on public cloud infrastructure because of the need to have resources that are geographically close to most of their key network destinations. However, by allowing cloud-based platforms to run locally across these many network edge locations, the transition to cloud-based core network functionality becomes more practical.

That’s where the IBM Cloud Satellite offering, which is based on RedHat’s OpenShift, comes in. OpenShift can run in public cloud environments when that’s most appropriate, but it can also run at these edge or other on-premise locations, giving it the flexibility to meet the demanding and often highly regulated, utility-like environments used by network carriers. Most importantly, Cloud Satellite provides a single point of management and control for all these possible deployments.

It also provides the basic foundation for connecting hardware and software companies that IBM organized into an ecosystem around its new Cloud for Telecommunications. These partners will provide the hardware platforms upon which the IBM Cloud Satellite platform can run, a variety of best-of-breed software tools that can extend the platform, or advisory/consulting services to assist in getting all the elements deployed.

To make the solution even more suited to the telecommunications industry, IBM is also integrating its Edge Application Manager and Telco Network Cloud Manager tools to assist in the process of telco-specific workload automation, management and deployment of network services, and more.

A practical implementation of some of these concepts can be seen in the first of the two announcements made, specifically the one in conjunction with AT&T. What’s interesting about that news is that it brings some of these principles to life, and it does so within the specific context of AT&T’s existing Multi-Access Edge Computing offering. One of the key opportunities that many telcos see with 5G is the deployment of private 5G networks within certain organizations (see “New Research Shows Pent-Up Demand For Private 5G Networks” for more).

With the IBM/AT&T partnership, AT&T can essentially act as a sales channel for the IBM Cloud Satellite product, letting customers set up and manage private networks or other edge computing applications that benefit from cellular connectivity, all under the auspices of the IBM software. Because it can run locally in a private cloud mode, or connect with other cloud resources in a hybrid cloud mode, Cloud Satellite lets organizations set up the type of capabilities they want—ranging from 5G-connected machines in manufacturing sites to remote monitoring in healthcare and beyond—and control them via a single tool.

Ultimately, the key to making 5G more than just a faster data pipe will be to figure out ways for carriers and their customers to create the kind of meaningful applications that can help transform businesses and their processes. IBM’s efforts here—particularly in driving an ecosystem of partners that can help companies achieve these goals—look to be important steps forward.

Killexams : Vintage photos capture 1970s blight of now-trendy New Haven neighborhood

Strings of green vines in alternating shades of chartreuse and shamrock frame large plate-glass windowpanes against the black façade of Gather East Rock’s storefront.

Housed beneath a century-old red brick building with tall, white bay windows jutting out over State Street, the East Rock café is now home to weekly Dungeons and Dragons nights, local singer-songwriters and even a self-improvement club.

Large pots and slatted wood planters growing peppers, tomatoes and marigold hug the curb of State Street where, for nearly 400 years, commuters have traversed between what would eventually become New Haven, “the Neck” (today’s Fair Haven) and beyond.

But 44 years ago, the building at 952 State Street had a slightly different vibe.

“It was called Satan’s Pool Parlor,” photographer Karen Klugman said. “It was less scary than I thought it’d be with that name. It attracted a younger crowd. Much younger than anywhere else on the street. Just a few blocks over was Yale. But that wasn’t the crowd. It was working class people from the neighborhood.”

Upper State Street was a neighborhood in decline. Once a vital artery bridging the expanding urban core of New Haven to the meadows and farmlands on its outskirts, the Upper State Street of 1978 was in a state of disrepair with local merchants poised to take the neighborhood’s glory back.

The Upper State Street Association formed to bring the blighted neighborhood, with its boarded up shops, crumbling buildings and rising crime rate, back to its former glory.

Six years later, the revitalized Upper State Street Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was barely recognizable.

She didn’t know it at the time, but Klugman captured a community at its crossroads at the same time she faced one of her own.

Those moments will be on display throughout August at City Gallery for a show accompanying Klugman’s latest book, "Upper State Street 1978: At the Height of its Decline."

In 1978, Klugman was working at Yale. She was part of a team that helped run the university’s computers. It was, she said, “a primo job” with companies like IBM scooping up young programmers for high-dollar jobs in the burgeoning information technology field.

But as Klugman stood on the brink of the digital age, she decided to side-step into the analog world.  After seeing a Yale film student documenting land from a bird’s point of view, Klugman’s own point of view shifted.

“I thought, 'oh my god, I see things like that. And I want to share things like that'” she said. “I got a camera to basically express some of the things I knew I could express. That turned into an instant career.”

While Klugman’s house outside of the city was being built, she would walk to the Upper State Street neighborhood. She started bringing her new camera along. As she began documenting life on Upper State Street, she also began sending her photos out. Within a year, she quit her job to become a full-time photographer.

She was also about to become a mother for the first time.

“There was this absolute joy of finding this new passion of being able to express things that weren’t mathematical. Other things I’d seen in the world. That was lovely," she said. "Everything about my life changed just as everything about State Street changed. A lot was changing in the world.”

The Upper State Street of today is a bustling hub of hip shops, restaurants and small businesses. There are salons, pottery studios, smoothie shops and an old Firehouse that now serves as a post-traumatic stress center looking to help neighborhoods heal.

The buildings of the neighborhood, in yellows, greens and rows of red brick are as colorful as its current occupants — young professionals, college and grad students and the working class families that have kept Upper State Street relevant since before New Haven was a city.

Its makeup is now as diverse as the various structures in Greek Revival, Italianate, Second Empire, Queen Anne, Romanesque, Gothic Revival, and Classical Revival styles that make up the neighborhoods architectural character.

It’s the latest iteration of one of the country’s earliest colonial roads.

New Haven was incorporated in 1784. But State Street (though it wasn’t named so until 1850) has existed in one form or another since the late 1630s, according to the New Haven Preservation Trust.

The Upper State Street Historic District runs along State from Bradley Street to Mill River.

For the first few centuries the road existed, it served as the primary thoroughfare connecting the original nine-square settlement of New Haven to the Neck and its pastoral lands. But it was in the mid-19th century, when New Haven transitioned from mercantilism to manufacturing, that State Street began to take the shape it still holds. Most of the still-standing major structures of Upper State Street were built between 1850 and 1900.

As New Haven’s population boomed with an exponential increase in manufacturing, the city began to spread. As populations and real estate prices shot up around Wooster and Jocelyn Squares, the less-expensive Upper State Street area began to take shape as a mixed-use, commercial and residential community. Brick factories, sausage factories and dye shops merged around densely packed buildings housing business owners above shops and near the factories they owned.

By 1900, “the upper State Street area had become firmly established as one of New Haven's most bustling and prosperous, as well as densely built-up outlying neighborhood commercial districts,” according to Living Places, a website that tracks and preserves information on historic districts.

By the 1920s, the growing use of cars “meant that people had increased mobility beyond anything known before. The increased mobility allowed some of the more affluent members of these neighborhoods to escape to less congested areas of the city or to suburban towns,” Thomas Farnum wrote in Upper State Street 1640-1982.

That migration to the suburbs led to an influx of Italian-American residents from Wooster Square and Polish-Americans from Fair Haven. Now a mostly self-sufficient mixed-use neighborhood with nearly 100 business on its own, Upper State Street was a thriving neighborhood from the turn of the century through to the end of the second world war.

But with the advent of supermarkets and increased automobile traffic sent more and more residents to the suburbs.

  • Books will be available to purchase for $40
  • The gallery will run Fridays through Sundays from 1 p.m.-4 p.m., or by appointment, until Aug. 21.

“Supermarkets came into their own, attracting shoppers away from independent meat markets, bakeries, and produce dealers,” Farnum wrote. “Many State Street merchants could no longer survive. Stores were now standing vacant for longer and longer periods between tenants.”

And then the Interstate came. The construction of Interstate 91 eliminated the need for passers-by to stop in the district and by the late ‘60s Upper State Street was identified by the city if New Haven as a blighted area in need of revitalization.

The Upper State Street Association has existed in various forms since its founding in the late '70s. Toward the end of 2016, John Martin helped bring the association back. Martin, a former architect, now runs the Bradley Street Bicycle Coop in a  corner building on State and Bradley his family has owned since the 60s. I-91 literally punched through neighborhoods, invoking eminent domain to demolish or spilt buildings in half.

"These highways just ripped through neighborhoods and cut them into pieces and built big walls through them," Martin said. "Totally changed the neighborhoods. It was a different street totally changed by the highway."

But some businesses held on. Grocers like John DeRose became lynchpins, providing their own hue among the neighborhood’s cultural palette. Klugman recalls DeRose and his eponymous State Street grocery store, now a laundromat. 

DeRose, cigar hanging in his mouth, would recite customers’ shopping lists like “liturgical chants,” she said. Crescendoing in the orders total and prompting cheers and chants of “amen” from spectating shoppers.

Karen Klugman

That’s the State Street Klugman found — a neighborhood filled with local holdouts who wouldn’t let the mechanisms of modernization uproot their firmly planted lives. 

“In 1978, most of the businesses on State Street were antique stores and self-described junk shops.  Browsing their combined merchandise was like sifting through an extravagant rummage sale of American history,” Klugman wrote in her book.

It was that color and character that captivated her and drew the focus of her lens. She went on to publish numerous books of photography and teach the craft at schools like Wesleyan, Choate and Hopkins.

For more than four decades, the project that launched it all sat in boxes until she decided to do some pandemic-house cleaning.

Now, the next stop for the contents of an old box designated for a dumpster is the wall of a New Haven museum.

Sultan Tahir opened Gather East Rock about nine months ago. On a wing and prayer, the New Hampshire professor of film found himself the latest to carry a torch that predates the street lamps outside his shop.

"It's pretty neat to see this place had some punk rock funkiness back in the day," he said. "Everything is in flux all the time. It's amazing to see the progression from then to now."

Martin said State Street today is more like the State Street of 1922 than 1962.

"We want a walkable neighborhood. We want a neighborhood where maybe we know some people. Where we have some of our basic services maybe within walking distance," Martin said. "State Street is really special in that it has those things. Through a combination of people who care about it, businesses that have done well and a neighborhood that supports it, we've been lucky. And we've fought for it."

Killexams : Review warned of passport office crisis even before pandemic

The 2020 report said the 'single greatest improvement' to the passport program would be an online portal to submit applications. That has not been created

Article content

OTTAWA – An internal evaluation of Canada’s passport service was warning even before the pandemic that processes were using the “least efficient” delivery model and that services would struggle to keep up with any “unplanned volumes.”

Internal government evaluators published an in-depth study of the country’s passport program on March 2020, just as the COVID-19 pandemic was emerging as a major threat to global public health.

The evaluation found that the program “demonstrated strong performance” in delivering passports between 2013 and 2018. But it also highlighted many issues that would foreshadow what has now become a government crisis in passport processing.

“It seems like a fulfillment of a prophecy. We knew there was going to be a problem when the pandemic started,” said Kevin King, president of the Union of National Employees that represents around 800 passport workers.

That crisis began this spring, when Service Canada offices across the country were overwhelmed with Canadians trying to get their hands on a new passport to restart travelling after two years of pandemic measures.

Two years ago, passport program evaluators predicted that unexpected increases in applications would be a problem and recommended the government address it.

“While the Passport Program generally has sufficient staffing capacity, it has challenges in adjusting service delivery resources flexibly to respond to unplanned volumes,” reads the document.

“Interviews highlighted challenges associated with budgeting and staffing in Canada based on volume projections, particularly when volumes were higher than expected.”

The evaluation also quoted a 2013 internal assessment that found that the program’s design, which allows Canadians to apply for a passport through multiple channels – such as by mail, at Service Canada offices and MPs’ offices — is confusing and the “least efficient” model.

Reducing the number of application intake channels would make the process more efficient, the report concluded.

The situation at passport offices became critical in June, with applicants facing overwhelming line-ups, with some camping for multiple nights in front of federal government buildings or even paying people hundreds of dollars just to wait in line for them. Passport offices have also been turning away anyone who does not need a passport urgently, reserving services for only people who are about to leave the country.

In a statement Thursday, Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) spokesperson Mila Roy said the issue is due in part to “pent up demand” from two years of unusually low passport applications, at 20 per cent of regular volume.

This year, between April 1 and July 3, Employment and Social Development Canada data show the government received just under 809,000 passport application and issued over 502,000 of them. Roy said the government expects to have received 4.3 million applications for the 12-month period ending March 31, 2023.

While higher than mid-pandemic levels, the volume is still within pre-pandemic norms, when the government received between 2.5 million and 5 million applications every year.

Roy also blamed an increase in mail-in application, which she says take 40-per-cent longer to process, and a higher volume of complex cases, such as new passport requests versus renewals, for the backlog.

But officials and the minister in charge of Service Canada, Karina Gould, have also admitted that they did not foresee the jump in applications seen this spring.

The 2020 report said the “single greatest improvement” to the passport program would be an online portal to submit applications, evaluators noted. That has not been created.

In a statement, Immigration Minister Sean Fraser’s spokesperson Aidan Strickland said the department hired IBM in December 2020 to develop a digital platform that would allow people to renew and pay for their passports online, as well as upload the required photo from any device.

But the so-called Passport Digital Services project is only at the pilot-project phase and there is no timeline for a broader release.

“We will not expand beyond the pilot until we are confident the online application process is working as intended,” Strickland said.

The 2020 evaluation also raised concerns about having too many government departments involved in  passport delivery.

The passport program is led by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, but also involves ESDC and Global Affairs Canada as service providers.

“The program is governed by several departmental and interdepartmental committees, each of which is responsible for some form of oversight, management and consultation,” the report’s authors wrote.

There is a lack of clarity with respect to accountabilities and responsibilities, which has led to difficulties with program decision-making and coordination

Report

“There is a lack of clarity with respect to accountabilities and responsibilities, which has led to difficulties with program decision-making and coordination,” evaluators added, while recommending government “re-examine” the program’s governance and “establish clear leadership.”

Strickland said the government hired another third party to conduct a new review of the passport program’s governance following the 2020 review and that departments are now working on streamlining the process.

Many of the issues highlighted by evaluators were meant to be addressed by the Passport Program Modernization Initiative (PPMI), a $100-million government IT project launched in 2014 meant to create a new and improved passport-issuance system.

But like other major government IT projects, the PPMI hit significant snags early on and by 2017, documents obtained by CBC News revealed it was well behind scheduled and the price tag had already jumped by more than $75 million.

In the 2020 passport system review, evaluators noted that the new issuance process, as part of the PPMI, was meant to be deployed in 2016–17, but “significant delays” pushed it back to at least 2021-2022.

Strickland says the government is now aiming for “full deployment” of the new system to start this summer. In the meantime, officials expect the passport backlog will remain at least until the end of the summer, at which point they expect it to drop “significantly”.

In the meantime, the federal Liberal government created a cabinet committee of 13 ministers tasked with finding solutions to the passport fiasco.

Conservative MP Laila Goodridge says she has “very little trust” in the government’s ability to fix the issue anytime soon.

“I was chatting with someone who applied for a passport in March and still doesn’t have their passport in hand. That’s insane. This is absolute basic government service,” she said in an interview.

“Canadians expect to be the best, and right now we are absolutely failing.”

Killexams : Google Cloud Platform Deploys Arm – Here’s What You Should Know

Google Cloud Platform (GCP) announced the coming availability of its Arm-based instance, the Tau T2A, last week (currently available in preview) to address the ever-expanding needs of customers developing and deploying scale-out, cloud-native workloads. What does this announcement mean for enterprise IT? Does landing this final major cloud player fully validate Arm in the enterprise? And what motivated Google to jump on the Arm bandwagon? We'll address this a little more in the following paragraphs.

What was announced

The T2A virtual machine (VM) is part of the GCP Tau scale-out instance family. Tau is targeted at those cloud-native applications that run containerized or in VMs that don't require extreme compute resources. The Tau family was deployed initially with AMD EPYC (T2D) with fixed configurations to offer this instance type optimized for cost and scale-out performance.

The Tau T2A VM is based on Ampere Computing’s Altra CPU. It’s important to note that Azure announced Ampere and instances are GA at Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, as well as several Chinese clouds (including TikTok parent, ByteDance).

To motivate developers and customers, GCP offers a free 8-core, 32G RAM instance of T2A through general availability.

How Google is positioning T2A

One of the things I find with Arm announcements is that sometimes the "why would I use this?' question isn't fully answered. It's almost as if an assumption is made that enterprise IT professionals would fully understand the price-performance benefits of Arm and workload affinity.

Through the briefings Moor Insights & Strategy Patrick Moorhead and I received, as well as the various public statements from Google, it is refreshing to see the company is helping guide its customers. As mentioned, T2A is a VM targeting those scale-out workloads that don't require maximum compute resources at the individual instance level. Unsurprisingly, one of the supporting blogs from Google discusses optimizations for the Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), Google's container environment.

A valuable capability of GKE is its multi-architecture support. So, containerized workloads can run in an x86 and Arm environment simultaneously. While this has many practical benefits, it also makes it easier for IT organizations to dip their collective toes in the “Arm” water, so to speak. It is capabilities such as this (not unique to GCP) that allow for organizations to deploy on Arm seamlessly.

It should be noted that T2A also runs the Google Container-optimized OS. So, organizations utilizing the popular Docker containers can expect full support.

Google has also enabled its Batch and Dataflow cloud services to run on T2A. These two services that target batch processing and streaming analytics respectively benefit from the Tau family's scale-out nature and T2A in particular.

While Google provides good guidance for its customers considering exploring or deploying on Arm, the use of T2A can be far broader. Independent of Google, Ampere has developed a robust ecosystem of partners, spanning the operating system to the workload. Functions like serverless caching via Momento, SLURM workload scheduling via SchedMD, and HPC through Rescale – are all optimized workloads for Ampere. And there are many more.

A few more details on T2A

Google is careful in how it positions its VM instances. When the company released its Tau VM family last year, it was very clear in positioning these as cost-effective, scale-out VMs. As one would expect with “cost-effective,” some options customers may prefer are lacking, such as local SSD support and higher bandwidth networking (32G supported in T2A v. 100G in other instances). Further, once a customer is locked into a T2A VM size (vCPU and RAM), they cannot dynamically add more resources.

Given the workloads targeted, the above makes sense, as customers look to distribute applications across many "good enough" performing VMs that don’t require maximum network throughput.

I like that GCP drives all of its specialized value into the Tau family, including T2A. The security measures, optimizations around memory (NUMA), network optimizations, etc.. that GCP has developed are all lit up in T2A. This level of support should assures customers utilizing T2A that these instances enjoy the same level of support as the highest performing compute engines.

Has Arm arrived in the enterprise?

The quick and simple answer is yes, though not for every workload. GCP announcing Arm-based instances rounds out support from all the major CSPs. This widespread support hasn't happened because Arm is cool or trendy. Nor has it happened as an exercise to drive better pricing from the x86 players. Arm is being deployed because CSPs can deliver equal or better performance for specific workloads at a lower cost and power envelope. Period. This is basic economics.

While Arm is not going to replace x86 to run virtualized infrastructure on VMware anytime soon, there are still use cases where Arm is a good fit. In its blog promoting T2A, one of GCP's reference customers is Harvard University. The school runs several compute-intensive workloads on SLURM VirtualFlow, and T2A allows it to run tens of thousands of VMs in parallel, reducing compute time significantly. But here’s the key to what Harvard had to say – the migration to T2A was done with minimal effort. Such is the beauty of cloud-native development. The cost and time savings will be immediately recognized.

I like this Harvard reference because it reminds us that Arm is not just for the digitally born companies that have never had an on-premises datacenter. It's for any company embarking on a digital transformation or modernization project.

Further proof of Arm's move into the datacenter can be seen in HPE's announcement of the upcoming ProLiant RL300 Gen11 server based on Ampere's Altra CPU. This is the first mainstream server that HPE has announced ahead of its Gen11 launch, and I expect the market will see competitors roll out its servers in time.

Is T2A just a competitive response from Google?

I don’t believe that Google is interested in investing in and rolling out an Arm-based instance to be like every other cloud provider. GCP is run by many intelligent people who firmly understand its customers' wants and needs.

As a company, Google has deep roots in silicon design, development, and optimizations. It's no secret that the company works with CPU vendors to deliver Google compute-optimized platforms. I think GCP has done its due diligence in ensuring the Ampere CPU could and would meet its particular and the needs of its customers.

I believe my only question is around the longer-term strategy for Google and Arm. There are two camps in the CSP space: those that design its silicon (i.e., AWS Graviton) and those that deploy Ampere. Given Google's history in silicon development, could we see a custom chip in the future? It is a scenario that is entirely plausible.

Final thoughts

Google rounds out support for Arm from the major CSPs with its Tau T2A VM offering, based on Ampere Computing’s Altra CPU. While the company is last to market in this regard, it has done a thorough job of positioning Arm relative to x86 and target workloads.

I believe this is just the beginning for Arm at GCP and suspect the company will eventually roll Arm offerings into other compute engine offerings over time. But I think it will do this in a very measured way, looking for areas where Arm can offer a differentiated experience for customers.

It's a good time to be a proponent of Arm. And a better day to be an investor of Ampere Computing. There is no doubt that Arm is here to stay. Not as a cheap alternative to x86, but as an architecture that can be optimized for many workloads, with the ability to lead in raw performance, price-performance, and performance-per-watt, at a time when each of these measures are so critical.
