[2] The following is excerpted from the applicant's response to question #18: "The proposed gTLD will provide the marketplace with direct association to the term, ʺmeme.ʺ The term ʺmemeʺ connotes the echoing of a cultural idea, and was coined by Richard Dawkins in his book, ʺThe Selfish Gene.ʺ In the context of the .meme gTLD, the mission of the gTLD to provide a dedicated domain space in which registrants can enact second-level domains related to viral phenomenon, ideas, images, and videos. link
ghOSt: Fast & Flexible User-Space Delegation of Linux Scheduling
The workload contains three query types (CPU and memory bound, IO and memory bound, and CPU-bound) - ghOSt is able to reduce tail-latency for the first two types of requests, but doesn’t have a huge impact for the thirdThe paper does note that it is possible to impact compute bound tasks by extending the ghOSt policy with similar logic to what Linux’s CFS contains around nice values. . What stood out to me the most about this section is actually ghOSt’s impact on developer productivity: When developing a kernel scheduler, the write-test-write cycle includes (a) compiling a kernel (up to 15 minutes), (b) deploying the kernel (10-20 minutes), and (c) running the test (1 hour due to database initialization following a reboot). link

Pete Warden's blog
I’ve now scratched my own itch, but I’m hoping that this code will help introduce more people to the amazing advances in open source voice technology that have been happening over the last few years, and also help increase the number of people donating their voices to Common Voice, since none of this could have happened without Mozilla’s groundbreaking efforts. link
